Kettlewell -- a magical place made all the more magical by Pennycroft, its walled garden, its generous breakfasts, its exceptional owners. It's all you dream of in a North Yorkshire village: river, pubs, church, walking/hiking, all of it at the door. Ask Lizzie and Laurence about the drive from Arncliffe to Malham, 8 miles of one-track road on top of the world. Indeed ask them anything, wonderful hosts and guides to the area.

Pennycroft is a great place to stay. Laurence & Lizzie go to great effort to ensure their guests are welcome: a quality, varied (and filling) breakfast, tea & cakes in the afternoon, a lounge and a garden to sit in etc. etc. It is right in the centre of Kettlewell, so the pubs are very close for dinner (although we also recommend the Buck Inn in Buckden). Kettlewell is in a lovely valley. At £68 for a lovely (red) en suite room, it was great value.

Room Tip: The red room is lovely with a good view over the garden.

We arrived wet and tired for a couple of nights stay cycling around the dales. Lizzie and Laurence couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. Comfortable accommodation, great cake, tea when needed. Secure bike storage. Beautiful breakfasts, especially for vegetarians. Laurence gave us good local tips for cycle routes. Thank you very much.

This is our third time staying at Pennycroft, it's a perfect home from home. The best breakfast in
yorkshire, we wouldn't stay anywhere else, try the Red Room you will love and want to go back again and again like we do, The Best !!!

Room Tip: The Red Room, stay and watch the wildlife in the garden.

We arrived damp and very tired after a long walk doing the Inn Way. Laurence was very welcoming and showed us to our room which was the downstairs of their home (the main B&B is a few doors down the lane). It felt slightly strange being in a room underneath the owners but they were very quiet and the room was a good size and very nicely furnished with a decent en-suite. We were shown how to get instant heat from the storage heater to dry our clothes and warm up - very welcome despite it being June! After a hot shower Laurence took us to the main B&B cottage where we were shown the great kitchen facilities and the constant availability of tea, coffee, biscuits etc and Lizzie's excellent home made cake.

We sampled the wares of the three great pubs in the village that evening and the next day enjoyed an excellent breakfast watching the myriads of birds feeding in the garden. An enjoyable stay - thank you.

Stayed for 2 nights B&B and would definitely go back again. We had the en-suite in the cottage overlooking the garden and the bird feeders which we both liked. As we were staying with 2 friends, who had the other room in the cottage, it was a home from home without the cooking and washing up to do. Lizzie and Lawrence were great, a really pleasant couple. Breakfast was good. The weather was horrible, but we had a coal fire lit in June and the heating came on both morning and evening.

We booked last minute and the owners Lizzie & Lawerence are just lovely. The B&B is so welcoming and the room we stayed in was very comfy and clean. We arrived to wellies and clothes of other guests getting dried in the kitchen and some yummy cake. A tour of the main house and instruction to the fire. The room we had was in a seperate cottage just a few doors up from the main door and we loved the little touches. Dvds, cds, games and books about the village in our room.
We did hear noise upstairs but It didnt last long and if anything it felt fitting. We did have the owners on top of us we think and we could tell they tried to keep quiet bless them. I found it sweet the owner helping us to find a place to park and then showing us to our room.
We both slept like logs after eating locally, sampling the villages pubs and playing the games in our room. We couldnt get over how friendly everyone was.
Now the breakfast...... best breakfast (we both agreed this) we have had in a long time. The eggs... which Lizzie offered us two- Thankyou. They were really yummy. The whole breakfast sat at the table, watching the birds in the stunning back garden is something I wont forget in a hurry.
Credit to the owners, they really couldnt do any more.
We didnt want to leave to be honest. We know we will be going back. Thankyou for such a lovely stay. Oh and they mentioned cyclists as we left. We saw a few going past the b&b when we were leaving. Your right Lizzie.... they do dont they.

Room Tip: We had the room in the seperate annexe- you get more privacy but you dont get to see the garden.
