“A lovely place to stay”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We booked 2 rooms overnight 2/3 March 2012. We arrived and got our keys, my daughters had the upstairs room, we were beneath them. The rooms were lovely and bright with a clean attractive bathrooms, lots of towels and tea/coffee and biscuits. The beds were so comfortable and we all slept well.
Breakfast was even better, help yourself cereals, fruits and yogurts and a cooked breakfast, cooked fresh, nothing reheated. And 'real' tea and excellent coffee. the perfect start to the day!
Thank you.

I had cabin 2 on 18/02/2013. Despite it being freezing outside I was very warm and cosy in this pleasant room/log cabin with en-suite. Big shower, loads of hot water, everything beautifully clean. The room was nicely dressed and decorated. The bed was bliss. In the morning I watched all the garden birds feeding. Breakfast was lovely, fresh and plenty of choice - good strong fresh coffee too, served in a lovely dining room. I recommend Robeanne and the delightful owner. Really great value. 5*.

We booked here because our first and second choices of hotel were not available. What to write? Some of the things which irritated us may delight other people and it feels kind of unkind to pick holes.

On the good side, they were expecting us, our room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the wifi worked well. On the less good side, we were really cold when the heating went off and my warm-up shower wasn't very hot. As it was an electric shower this is mystifying so maybe we didn't get the thing to work properly. I would have dearly loved a hot water bottle. Another annoyance was the itsy-bitsy fussy touches around our room, too many cushions, stuffed toys, two pots of dried flowers and one vase of dried flowers and a pile of books. Give me the bare expanse of desk of a chain hotel anytime, the variable heating and the extra bedding hidden in the wardrobe!! The room felt full of the owners' stuff and here was little room to put anything!

We were told breakfast was fixed to an hour which meant quite a disciplined start for a holiday. The conservatory seemed very chilly but then we were seated by the window. Once again we had to move a pile of books from the dining table before we could eat, those books are just everywhere. The breakfast was very good though we were told there were not enough sausages for us both to have them (no problem - didn't want sausage but how hard is it to get this right?).

We would not dream of going there again. Of the four places we stayed at over the festive period, this was the most expensive and the least enjoyable. Our over whelming memory is of being too cold and the faffy decoration everywhere. Someone said in these reviews that it was like a home from home, well, not my home that's for sure!!

I appreciate that other reviewers rave about the place well, tant pis, this is just an honest report but from our view.

Room Tip: The rooms in the court yard gets very cold everytime you go out to the car to unload and it is hard...

Robert and Jeanne have created a wonderful place for people to stay, which really does feel like a home from home. The rooms are all amazing and absolutely spotless. Even on arriving on a slightly cold and rainy Autumn day in Yorkshire, my room was warm, cosy and very inviting. Everywhere you look, all of the small details have been considered which make for an overall better experience. The main part of the house where there is a sitting room and huge bright conservatory, is where breakfast is served...and this is the best part of your whole stay. As Jeanne lists the options for your cooked breakfast...try and avoid the urge to just say 'yes!' to all of it! On top of everything there is another sitting room and large kitchen for guests to use.

Having family in the area, I will most definitely be making this my regular place to stay. Looking forward to visiting again!

I have included pictures of my room - apologies for the photography and the mess I managed to make! - including my cross legged friends who accompanied my stay :)

Room Tip: I stayed in the 'annex' part of the house but there were also two great wooden cabin rooms i...

I have been fortunate enough to have travelled to many different places in the world over the last few years. Robeanne offers what I now look for in accommodation: a real home from home. The rooms are of excellent quality, with good clean powerful showers. The breakfast is second to none. Also Jeanne and the family are always at hand to help if need be. Excellent place and excellent value, I would highly recommend this B&B.

We only had one night here but our room was spacious, clean and beautifully laid out. The added use of the dining area and guests lounge made it a really good place to relax. The freshly cooked breakfast was worth waiting for and there was plenty of it. Lovely friendly place and we would definitely go back!
