We stayed here on our 2012 Pennine Way trip, and it was by far the best place we stayed at along the way. After a quite harsh walk in pouring rain and fog from Malham and over Pen-y-ghent, we were very happy to arrive at The Willows which seemed to be about the only B&B in the small village of Horton. The couple hosting the B&B in their home were very welcoming, inviting us for a brew after installing ourselves. Very nice but with a certain distance, which suits us northeners well. Rooms are large and clean and the breakfast is good too.
