In need of a simple b&b prior to an early start walking over Ingleborough we were tempted by the top reviews on Wood Grove and found one of the best we've ever stayed in! Charming hosts, excellent breakfast and superb house, rooms & facilities at very reasonable rate. The location is wonderful. We strolled out straight into Skipton Woods & down Eller Beck into Skipton. Great for birdwatchers. The town has much more to offer than we expected too. The two large & very comfortable bedrooms share one stylish & large bathroom so ok for family or if just one room required you get exclusive use as they don't let the other room. Like staying in the "west wing" of a country house! In the evening we walked down the lane to town (only about 300 yards) for evening meal at hosts recommended restaurant which was very good. The lane is adequately lit and not too steep. We've never done a review before but Wood Grove was so good we decided to do so.
