“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This really is a lovely place to stay. You are made so welcome from the minute you arrive. I have stayed in many b and b's and this is up there as probably the best I have been to. What a shame it was only one night - so much breakfast choice and so little time! It's a pleasure to go somewhere where the hosts are clearly proud of what they do - thank you!

We had a very pleasant one night stop here during the Swaledale Festival at the end of May. A very comfortable room and a most splendid breakfast. Sean and heather were most diligent hosts. We particularly appreciated the cup of tea on our arrival. Most definitely recommended and we hope to return at some point.

Absolutely marvellous. Hosts Heather and Sean couldn't be more helpful.

Five star rooms, and with this attentive service you'd think you were in the Ritz ;-)

My only reservation was that it is on the road through the village, but that was soon to prove not to be the slightest issue. I had two great nights sleep, and I'm a light sleeper!

Breakfast is amazing, and mostly quality local product. The Flynns really know their stuff about food, having run a very successful restaurant in Rye for many years, attended by the likes of Paul McCartney and John Slazenger!

We both feel that it is the attention to the little things that make our guests stay as memorable as possible. Thank you for taking the time to write the review.

We arrive late afternoon and were greeted by Sean and Heather.After checking out the accommodation we were provided with tea and home made cake.We only stayed for 1 night and wished we were staying for longer. The breakfast was excellent and we were given details of a super walk in Middleham. Our hosts could not have done more to make our stay most memorable. We hope we can return for longer

We stayed for one night in June whilst on a minibreak in the Dales. The reviews on Tripadvisor where an important factor in our decision to stay at Clyde House, and we were absolutely delighted with this B and B. We chose the Middleham Room at the back of the property, which has the double advantage of some great views over the garden and the hills beyond.

The room was quiet and very comfortable - traditionally furnished rather than modernist chic. Location wise it is spot on and a great option if you decide to dine at the Wensleydale Heifer in West Witton - just a short taxi ride away.

As for breakfast - well, simply amazing. The full English was the tastiest we have experienced in a long time. You will not have to eat again until the end of the day! Thanks Sean and Heather for a great experience.

Room Tip: The Middleham Room, being at the rear of the property, also benefits from being away from the road.

That was my husband's verdict on Heather Flynn's wonderful breakfasts during our recent 3-night stay at Clyde House. It was our third visit and the breakfasts have been consistently excellent. There is a wonderful range of dishes, including cooked seasonal fruit such as rhubarb. Each main course is prepared to order and the ingredients - eggs, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, smoked salmon, haddock - are all locally sourced and of excellent quality. Special diets are generously catered for (eg vegetarian sausages, gluten-free cereals) and there is as much excellent coffee or tea as you can drink.
The accommodation is comfortable and spotlessly clean. Heather and her husband Sean do everything they can to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay.
Leyburn is a delightful centre for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. Our visit, during the last week in May, coincided with the first week of the Swaledale Festival - a fortnight-long celebration of music, art, drama and the local countryside. There were lots of interesting events to attend, in varied locations in both Swaledale and Wensleydale. A good local bus service means it is possible to visit attractive places in the area, such as Ripon and Richmond, without needing to use the car.

I stayed at Clyde House due to gaining work experience for the week in Leyburn. I do not think that I could have chosen a better place to stay. On arrival I was immediately made to feel welcome, which was very comforting since this was my first time staying alone in a B&B. Sean and Heather were/are extremely helpful and excellent hosts, every time I came back from work they asked if I would like to spend some time in the garden or if I'd like a glass of wine with them. Breakfast was delicious and as a vegetarian there were lots of options available - the fruit compotes are superb. My room was very clean and everyday there were some freshly homemade biscuits waiting for me to enjoy.
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.
