“Great time at the Wheatsheaf”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We had a lovely overnight stay last weekend, planned at the last minute so we were lucky to get booked in. The place is spotlessly clean and still makes doggie guests very welcome. Restaurant meal was very nice. Everyone really works hard to make guests feel at home and welcome. There's a good atmosphere, and it is rare now to find a village pub still open. They obviously all work hard to make it work. The local football team were in for their Saturday tea of lovely Shepherds Pie. It all added to the feeling of busyness and people really using their local. Our breakfast was really good - tasty good quality sausage and good bacon made it a real pleasure. Overall a great stay in a very homely welcoming local pub.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are not huge, but ours was more than adequate with a better than average ensuite w...

We recently stayed here for a weekend and can't fault the place - staff/owners were friendly and provided good service, also the food was very good - lots of it and was served quickly. Our room, although a little on the small side, was still clean, comfortable and warm. There is plenty of walking to be done and a few attractions nearby also. We would certainly be happy to stay here again and would recommed The Wheatsheaf.

I stayed as part of a walking party on a weekend break. The hotel is very comfortable and welcoming. The staff work very hard to give good service. The food is excellent. My room was a single in the old part of the building and was over the bar, but noise was not a problem, but I have to say that I could hear the folk in the next room at times.

Room Tip: There is a new block at the back of the hotel, which may have better facilities?

We stayed there for two nights Sept 2-4th and would highly recommend it for a visit,it was clean airy,and comfortable.We had our evening meal in the bar and very nice it was the bar staff and the locals were very friendly.All our meals were served quickly and the staff were all prepared to go that extra mile for instance I don't care for the milk in cartons which were in our room but the staff gave me a small jug to take to our room. All in all this was an excellent break and well worth a visit we would go back.The car parking was plentiful and not uneven as someone had mentioned

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade well worth it

We stayed in Carperby in August 2013 and frequented the pub on several occasions.
Friendly staff, excellent beer and cider.
Food was excellent, good choice on the menu and reasonably priced, very friendly and quick service.
Would consider staying here for a short break on the strength of the pub.

My wife and I stayed here over three nights last weekend. The first thing you notice is the lovely warm welcome. The food was excellent as was the service, this was first class. we stayed in one of the Apedale suite rooms, these are modern rooms whch offer more space. The mattress was really comfy and we were afforded three good sleeps, I usually struggle in strange beds, but not here. Some changes have been made since we last stayed here. The bar area which was a little dated has had a lick of paint which makes the area much brighter and more welcoming, also little touches include colour photos and pictures instead of the previous black and white. There is a new wood burner in the huge Inglenook in the residents lounge which looks inviting. The dining room has a new floor and has been opened up since our previous visit. All in all we have had a lovely relaxing time, the staff were all really attentive and friendly, as I say the service was superb, already looking forward to our next visit, this will be when the weather has changed and the wood burner is in full flame! Well done to the owners and staff for continuous improvement.

Room Tip: The rooms in the Apedale are I think dual aspect, you do pay a little extra but it is worth it.

We stayed just the one night (31st August) The location is perfect for walkers with easy access to the Dales. Staff are friendly as are the locals!
We were at the front of the pub in one of the older rooms, there is a later extension on the back. We had everything we needed i just think it needs to be brought up to date as the decor and furniture are a bit tired.
Breakfast was really good, and perfect fuel for long walks!
Overall really good stop over for one or two nights tops.
