Park house is situated in a spectacular location opposite the moody and beautiful ruins of Jervaulx abbey. the owners of the b and b also own the abbey and grounds making for interesting breakfast conversation of the trials and tribulations of owning an eight hundred year old building.
This in itself is a reason to stay at Park House. The b and b has a five star rating and delivers in cotton bed linen and bath room facilities. The breakfast was good and the tea and cake on arrival most welcome.
For true five star hospitality, keeping the heating on after 10 o clock and providing a better duvet and pillows for the bed would have improved the quality of our stay. The checkout time of 10am to "change linen" seemed rather mealy mouthed considering the next guests were not expected for three weeks!
