We stayed at The Pheasant for 3 days, and as soon as we drove through the archway into the courtyard car park, we felt we were in for a treat. The peaceful atmosphere was apparent immediately and we never lost that feeling during our stay there. We were welcomed by the receptionist who picked up our luggage and took us to our large, bright, airy, and comfortable room, where she showed us the excellent facilities, and asked if we'd remembered to bring swimming gear for the pool.
We had booked evening dinner for all 3 days, and the choice was varied enough for everyone, with a 3 course table d'hote available, or an allowance of £30 towards the a la carte menu if preferred. Needless to say, the meals were superb, with good local Yorkshire produce used whenever possible, and not forgetting fresh herbs from their own garden. The high standard continued of course in the mornings, with everything you could possibly want for breakfast.
All of the staff were very friendly and efficient, and nothing was too much trouble for them.
My husband requested something for breakfast which wasn't mentioned on the menu, so someone was quickly despatched to the shop across the road to fetch it for him. What stars!
All in all, a great place for a relaxing break, with just the sound of birdsong to wake you in the mornings, a swim if you want that, or a late afternoon drink on the terrace whilst watching the ducks in the village pond.
We certainly hope to visit again.
