We have just come back from 3 nights staying at this B&B and had a great stay. The room we had was spacious and had plenty of storage space (which is always a good thing), also had good tea/coffee making facilities and a nice addition was that we had biscuits each day in the room on our return. On arrival we were treated to tea & coffee with homemade biscuits and cake which was a lovely & delicious touch after a long day travelling. The view from our room overlooked fields and the occasional cow, which was very nice for townies like us. The breakfast was excellant with fresh local sausages, bacon & eggs, also with a range of cereals with fresh fruit and yoghurt. Our hosts Liz & Mike were amazing they made us feel most welcome. Mike has a good knowledge of the local area and was able to suggest a couple of places for us to see and advised us of beautiful scenic routes to get there. The location of the B&B was perfect, we didn't feel like we were in the middle of nowehere, we were close enough to be able to explore the dales and also close to a couple of big towns.
We will certainly be going again and this time will "upgrade to the good weather package", as while we were there it didn't stop raining. We wholeheartedly recommend this B&B for anyone wishing to visit the Yorkshire Dales.
