Enjoyed a very relaxed cycling break in Leyburn, staying in Grove House. Jean and Nigel were very informed hosts - advising on best cycle routes (although ascent of hills proved very steep) and they also kindly provided secure cycle storage. Returning from each day's cycle ride, we were offered freshly baked home-made cake and plenty of tea - be rude to refuse (Mary Berry had better watch out)! Room was very clean and owners very generous with heating - so nice to visit a guest house where heating is unlimited (guests allowed to choose when and how warm their room is). Breakfast was tasty - as a veggie I was delighted to be offered a choice - Jean was a natural at making everybody feel welcome so that there was none of the usual 'British whispering' in corners during breakfast. I think this property is a superb example of a well-serviced guest house - hope to return soon - now I know that there is a very comfortable base to return to after a long day out exploring the beautiful nearby Dales.
