Lovely large clean rooms. Mine had a lovely en suite bath & shower; Just what you need after a long walk. Tea & coffee making facilities in the rooms with fresh milk. Wayne is a welcoming host & cooks a great breakfast; an ideal start to an active day ahead!

Superb room in perfect setting. Just a short walk away from Hawes Town. Very welcoming host Wayne. Friendly guests and lovely atmosphere. First class breakfast too. This stay was very good value for money and nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend.

The pot of tea and home made cake and biscuits was just the job after the 14 miles on the Pennine Way from Horton. He is full of sound advice about... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Wesleydale House. Our host Wayne was very accommodating with great extras, advice on walks and superb restaurant recommendations. Our room was huge with a large bathroom. Everything had been renovated to a top standard and we had a panoramic view across the fields. Breakfast was fabulous with lots of fresh fruit.
