I love the Yorkshire Dales and for me Ravenscar is the focal point from which to plan your day and the place in Ravenscar to stay is Smugglers Rock! A very friendly family run bed and breakfast establishment and the breakfasts are second to none (they fill you up for best part of the morning!) The bedrooms are very clean... More

A delightful spot. Friendly welcome set us off on a good footing and it just got better. Nicely appointed rooms with attention to detail and little extras to make life comfortable. A family get-together - all adult - we had 3 rooms and everyone was happy.

Everything was perfect. A beautiful,spotlessly clean and comfortable bedroom and bathroom, both with views towards sea and countryside. A comprehensive breakfast menu, our choice was very tasty and very well cooked. A cooked breakfast is a treat when away from home. We were unfortunately involved in a car accident when we were there so a big thank you to Sharon... More

Our room was very nice and perfectly clean. The setting is marvelous, though there was quite a bit of light from passing cars coming through our curtains at night. The owner wasn't massively friendly, but perfectly polite.

Many thanks for your kind comments. It was lovely to meet you and we hope you will visit again. Our method of pre-ordering breakfast seems to work well as it enables breakfast to be cooked healthier in the oven rather than frying and means that guests do not have a long wait for breakfast in the morning.
