“Very good indeed!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We stayed for one night in June whilst on a minibreak in the Dales. The reviews on Tripadvisor where an important factor in our decision to stay at Clyde House, and we were absolutely delighted with this B and B. We chose the Middleham Room at the back of the property, which has the double advantage of some great views over the garden and the hills beyond.

The room was quiet and very comfortable - traditionally furnished rather than modernist chic. Location wise it is spot on and a great option if you decide to dine at the Wensleydale Heifer in West Witton - just a short taxi ride away.

As for breakfast - well, simply amazing. The full English was the tastiest we have experienced in a long time. You will not have to eat again until the end of the day! Thanks Sean and Heather for a great experience.

Room Tip: The Middleham Room, being at the rear of the property, also benefits from being away from the road.

That was my husband's verdict on Heather Flynn's wonderful breakfasts during our recent 3-night stay at Clyde House. It was our third visit and the breakfasts have been consistently excellent. There is a wonderful range of dishes, including cooked seasonal fruit such as rhubarb. Each main course is prepared to order and the ingredients - eggs, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, smoked salmon, haddock - are all locally sourced and of excellent quality. Special diets are generously catered for (eg vegetarian sausages, gluten-free cereals) and there is as much excellent coffee or tea as you can drink.
The accommodation is comfortable and spotlessly clean. Heather and her husband Sean do everything they can to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay.
Leyburn is a delightful centre for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. Our visit, during the last week in May, coincided with the first week of the Swaledale Festival - a fortnight-long celebration of music, art, drama and the local countryside. There were lots of interesting events to attend, in varied locations in both Swaledale and Wensleydale. A good local bus service means it is possible to visit attractive places in the area, such as Ripon and Richmond, without needing to use the car.

I stayed at Clyde House due to gaining work experience for the week in Leyburn. I do not think that I could have chosen a better place to stay. On arrival I was immediately made to feel welcome, which was very comforting since this was my first time staying alone in a B&B. Sean and Heather were/are extremely helpful and excellent hosts, every time I came back from work they asked if I would like to spend some time in the garden or if I'd like a glass of wine with them. Breakfast was delicious and as a vegetarian there were lots of options available - the fruit compotes are superb. My room was very clean and everyday there were some freshly homemade biscuits waiting for me to enjoy.
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

This is a lovely guest house with all home comforts. We had a cosy room with fresh fruit and homemade biscuits to welcome us. The room was spotlessly cleanand the owners helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Our breakfast was as good as any top class hotel. The location couldn't be better as it in the village centre. Although our room overlooked the main road we were not disturbed by trafficnoise.There is no on site parking but across the road is the main village car park.

We stayed at Clyde House this weekend, the owners were kind and welcoming the room was very clean and comfy with everything we needed, including a bottle opener! We can both honestly say we had the best breakfast we have ever had at a B & B and we have been to many, the food was all fresh and sourced locally, and it was gorgous. My partner asked for some adaptations to his breakfast and the owners were more than happy to accomodate his requests. The service was very efficiant, the owners were kind, friendly and remained profesional. Layburn is a lovely small village with shops and a lovely restaurant, and a great base to explore some of the other places near by definately worth a visit.

Thank you both for taking the time to write such a glowing review. We do appreciate the comments our customers give us and Heather is delighted you enjoyed her breakfast, we get all our meat from a butcher in West Burton and the eggs are from a family farm in Fingal. Heather makes all her own Museli, Granola and fruit compotes. Once again thank you. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

From arrival late on Friday night to leaving on Sunday morning we were made to feel so welcome. We were taken to our room that was really nice, and well equipped with water, amazing home made biscuits and cracking chocolates.

After a great nights sleep we came down to a huge spread. Toast was with us within seconds along with piping hot coffee. Sean very quickly had our breakfast order and before I new it out came one of the best breakfasts of all time (black pudding was especially good), Heather is seriously talented and I even got a few tips to improve my breakfast tomatoes....

After breakfast we sat in the garden and enjoyed the sunny weather before heading out to see the sites. The B&B is located right in the middle of town so very easy access to all the shops and a few nice pubs including The Sandpiper that also does some yummy food.

All in all a cracking weekend and a great place to stay.

My husband and I stayed at the Clyde House in May. Sean and Heather were very welcoming on our arrival. This was our first stay in a B&B so we didn't know wht to expect. The house smelt delicious from Heather's baking so we knew we had picked the right place. Our breakfasts were made to order and we never left feeling hungry.
We spent our nights in the Leyburn Room. The room was cosy, spotless and the bed was very comfortable.
We definitely will be booking a room at the Clyde House when we return to The Dales next June.
Thanks Sean and Heather for everything!
We highly recommend this B&B if you are in the area.
