We stayed at Thorpe Hall last Friday and Saturday for the first time, and what a wonderful place it is - truly a hidden gem in the Robin Hood's Bay area.
Angelique and David are very friendly and accomodating hosts, and the hall, at 431 years of age, is a wonder to behold.
Yes, the windows are not double glazed (they are mullion windows) and yes, the water pipes do "sing" and yes, the floorboards do creak - but then so would I, if I was 431 years old. For a truly enchanting stay in this part of North Yorkshire, we cannot recommend it highly enough. Everyone should spend at least 1 night here in their lifetime.
We will definitely be returning for another stay later in the year.
Christopher and Lesley.
