“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

This hotel is situated in one of the most beautiful areas of England, the scenery up on the moor is stunning. The hotel is run by Jayne, who cooks the most delicious food and makes her guests feel extremely welcome. The rooms are very comfortable, very clean and make the whole place very difficult to leave - I could stay here for weeks!

My daughter and I stayed overnight at the Moorhouse during a visit to North Yorkshire in July 2012. Jane the Housekeeper and her staff could not have been more welcoming and a tray of tea with cake was made available to us after check in. Our very spacious room was light and airy with lovely views over fields and the lovely garden. Satellite TV/Hairdryer, tea/coffee making equipment were available in our room with Molton Brown toileteries in the bathroom. After enjoying a lovely day out at the Steamhouse & Fairground Organ event in Masham we returned in the early evening tired and relaxed where we were greeted with a further tray of tea with biscuits at no extra charge; Jane had also been kind enough to leave some artificial sweetener in our room after I had casually mentioned earlier that I had diabetes. The following morning we had a perfectly cooked full English breakfast with optional cereal and preservatives if required. I understand that the Moorhouse is used as a seasonal grouse hunting lodge and is part of a larger estate and a gentrified olde world charm pervades the whole place. My daughter and I agreed that if in the area again we would not hesitate to use this idyllic retreat again. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lovely garden if available.

One of the most charming hotels ever experienced. Breakfast exceptionally tasty! Service was super friendly and helpful; room simply a delight. Easily accessible by car. We were just blown away by this place. Great for a romantic getaway.

Just spent a lovely relaxing two days at The Moorhouse. My husband and I stayed in the excellent Hambleton bedroom, and it was spacious and comfortable with gorgeous Molton Brown products. Breakfast was fantastic!!

We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend The Moorhouse. Our only grumble was having to leave!!

Excellent value for money here. £90 for one night for two people in the spacious Ladywell Suite. Immaculately kept and throughly warmed. Greeted by the wonderful Jane and made to feel incredibly welcome.

The Drover's Inn is just next door and perfect for a couple of pints before bed. Intimate and friendly Yorkshire Pub for an intimate and friendly place to stay. Ideally, I would like to visit again with a large group of friends.

Breakfast was a knockout. Great selection (I had pancakes with nutella & bananas followed by a scrummy veggie breakfast served alongside black coffee)

Room Tip: If you're going with friends and want the best for yourself, choose the Lady Well Suite. I didn...
