In truth probably a '4.5' - because a top-of-the-line B&B will never have the facilities of a large hotel, but Moorlands comes close. Comfortable rooms with good beds and nice bathrooms (lots of hot water) plus really excellent evening meals with a medium-short but interesting wine list. Good breakfasts with lots of fruit, home made yoghurt and fresh eggs from the chickens at the back of the garden, local bacon and sausages etc. The house also boasts a small but well stocked bar - or a short stroll away there is a pleasant pub. Finally there is a nice area to sit out and have coffee or a drink and admire the view. The informal but very friendly welcome is pitched 'just right' as well - making you feel at home rather than 'uncomfortable' in the way some hotel Management can..
Levisham is accessible via a short one-track road first down and then up a steep hill - but this serves to keep passing traffic to a minimum. All in all a haven of peace with good food and soft beds!
