We had a lovely two night stay in the Chocolate Heaven room. Beautiful room with luxurious bathroom & LOTS of chocolate treats dotted around if you were peckish! The food at the Heifer was delicious & the staff were, without exception, really friendly & helpful. We'll definitely be back.

Bought a deal for a taster menu meal for two and decided to stay the night, my partner upgraded the room to the 'chocolate heaven' which was amazing. The food was outstanding and plenty of it even though just a taster menu! Not cheap but certainly a cut above the average. Tip: check the drinks prices before running up a... More

My wife and I have visited Wensleydale for about forty years. We must have passed] this establishment literally hundreds of times but have always stuck to what we know for eating. This week we were once again in the area and having read reviews we thought it must be worth a visit. Wrong. We knew it wasn't cheap and we... More

We stayed in the Night at the Movies room this time to celebrate my birthday. The service was brilliant, from every member of staff. The room was very comfortable and relaxing. Dinner in the evening was perfect and we could not fault anything. What makes this hotel different is the staff, who make you feel special and have time for... More

Although at first it may appear quite expensive for a Sunday lunch I feel it is worth every penny, meat exceptional, veggies done to perfection and all serves with a professional but not stuffy manner. Highly recommended. A lovely experience from start to finish.

Me and my partner stayed here for a night in the Movies room and have to say it was excellent, the themed rooms are a great idea and they haven't scrimped on the décor and accessories to match the rooms. The room was a very good size with plenty of storage space, and room to move around. The bathroom was... More

Love this hotel and restaurant, some of the best food we have eaten! Myself and my other half went for our anniversary and we had an amazing time. The staff are lovely and very welcoming and the area surrounding is lovely with plenty of nice places to go for walks. Would definitely recommend the shared starter!

We stayed in the Champagne room and found it well equipped with a comfortable bed, plenty of storage and an excellent bathroom. We have always enjoyed the food at the Heifer whether just stopping for lunch while passing through or staying. On this stay we took the lobster/steak package and found our chosen lobster and selected steak dishes excellent. Also... More
