I wonder if we stayed at the same place as the other 2 reviewers! Our experience of Clyde House was very odd indeed. We were obliged to stay here for a local function as no other accommodation was available. There were 4 in our party - on arrival one pair had a 10 minute lecture on the use (and abuse!) of the side door and we had a good 5 minutes on what not to put down the loo! The loo lecture was not necessary as on entering the tiny bathroom we found no less than 3 separate notices on the wall about what not to put down the loo! The bedrooms were OK, but not huge & in our 2 rooms the bathrooms were small. In the twin room the shower enclosure was nearly too small to be useable. The hosts must have a thing for air fresheners - plug-in devices in every room and on every landing - other scented oils, candles and jars on most surfaces - quite a powerful mixture in enclosed spaces! The hosts were also a bit odd themselves - other than drilling us on toilet and door policies they wanted to know what we wanted for breakfast the second we arrived (down to which flavour juice and preference for white or brown toast!). While eavesdropping on our conversation about where to meet up after dropping off bags, they were keen to tell us that the pub over the road was closed - but didn't point out 2 others up the street were open. Was this general intrusiveness a misplaced attempt at friendliness? We couldn't tell! The breakfast food was good, but none of us appreciated being ordered to inspect the "healthy options" before we were allowed to sit down to the fry-up! All in all our night at Clyde House was a fairly peculiar experience and one which I'm not keen to repeat. However some of the group insist we go again and take other friends to "enjoy" the experience!
I'm told by locals in Leyburn that Dales Haven Guest House is a very friendly place to stay!!

We stayed at Clyde House last week and it was one of the nicest places we have stayed, it far exceeded our expectations. Lucia and Graham were very welcoming, the room we had was spacious, clean and had everything we needed (and more, inc dvd player and dvds) and the breakfast was excellent.

I would highly recommend Clyde House to anyone traveling to or near Leyburn, or just for a weekend away.

Just returned from my second stay at this delightful guest house in a beautiful village in Wensleydale. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and spotless with lovely ensuite shower rooms. Breakfast is superb with an amazing choice choice of fresh or poached fruit followed by full Yorkshire or something lighter such as scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. The owners are charming people who go out of their way to make sure your stay is special. I look forward to returning.
