“Excellent B & B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

We recently stayed at the Old Vicarage in ' Room with a VIew'. We found the accommodation excellent with lovely views across open countryside. The breakfast was also excellent with a good choice and using local ingredients; we particularly enjoyed the baked fruit. When returning after a day out it was lovely to be greeted with a pot of tea and some of Neville's excellent cake in the lounge. Also when returning in the evening fresh milk in a cooler bag was provided in the room together with toftly treats - a really nice touch.
The guest house is a about a 10 minute drive into Pickering. There is a local pub in the village called 'The Swan Inn' which serves basic but good homecooked food.
The guest house is close too many places of interest, Pickering, Helmsley etc.
We can recommend the Old Vicarage without reservation and whenever we are visiting North Yorkshire this will be our first choice.

Seldom did we feel so welcome. Barbara and Neville Hobbs are exemplary hosts; they treat their guests like they would like to be treated themselves when away. Everything is done to create a welcome and friendly atmosphere.
Situated in the Yorkshire-countryside this B&B has 4 guestrooms.
Our Blue Room was well furnished, crisp, clean and cosy. Barbara stocked the room with everything a guest/a friend could possibly wish for. Neville is a excellent cook who provides a traditional Yorkshire breakfast and really knows his way with baking cakes.
Barbara and Neville love the area where the live and have lots of suggestions how to spend your days in this beautifully rural part of England.
Quite unique these hosts and their B&B.

Just returned from a 2 night break at The Old Vicarage! Chose to go there because of all the other great reviews and we weren't disappointed. Everything was ten out of ten: welcome, house, room, views, comfort, food, hosts...The attention to detail is stunning and you feel really spoiled by all the little extras: cake on arrival, chocolates in room every evening, bathrobes, lovely toiletries and a good bag to take home! We loved meeting the family and I loved meeting Stanley, the gorgeous labradoodle. We can't wait to go back and we have already been telling family and friends to book!

Room Tip: There are 4 individually decorated rooms -each with own personality and view - we were in the Blue R...

Had our first visit last year and could not wait to return. First visit was a new experience not quite sure what to expect but was excellent. Our return visit was all the more pleasurable as we were able to fully appreciate all that this excellent B&B has to offer. Our host Barbara and Neville were the perfect host, breakfast was excellent setting us up for our days walking, rooms were just as good as we remembered them with everything you could possibly need for the weekend and those special treats finished it off a treat. Hoping to return for a third time next year. This B&B really has to be experienced, if you are reading this review don't take our word for it. Go along and see for yourself, you will not be dissappointed.

We have just returned from a long weekend with friends at this B&B, we stayed in the Church View room and our friends in the "Room with a view". The Church view room is slightly smaller but both rooms have all facilities with en suite. Each room is was spotlessly clean, well furnished with large comfortable beds. The hosts, Neville and Barbara go that extra mile supplying fresh milk for the room, chocolates, biscuits and a decanter of port !

Breakfast was excellent using local produce all cooked to order and supplemented by a selection of fresh fruit and cereals.

Neville and Barbara have taken the best bits from other B&B's they have visited and go that extra mile to ensure your stay is an experience - delicious freshly baked cake on arrival with tea, repeated if you want everyday and as an added bonus they will pack up some cake for you to take out - You do not want to miss this as Neville,s cakes are truly delicious.

An excellent B&B, exceptional value, very good accommodation in old vicarage, great countryside and location with hosts that go that extra mile - not to be missed.

Room Tip: Book early

There's not much point in repeating what others clearly find to be first class accommodation, so I won't try.

I think what makes Toftly View so good is that not only do Mr and Mrs Hobbs try very hard to satisfy one's needs, but clearly the house and rooms have had a lot of investment, and the fixtures and fittings are all top quality.

A very quiet, very comfortable and pleasing experience. We hope to visit again soon.

We have stayed at The Old Vicrage on several occasions now and are never disappointed. Neville and Barbara's quiet hospitality is second to none. The breakfasts are a joy to behold and the choice varied and tempting. They are very knowledgeable about the area and nothing is too much trouble. They will happily make meal reservations for you, provide info on the best eateries and spoil you rotten with Neville's lovely cooking and baking. They even allowed us to have a small piece of furniture delivered to them for safekeeping until we could pack it in the car. Can't speak highly enough of this wonderful gem.

Room Tip: The Room With a View is spacious, spotlessly clean and a luxurious treat
