I booked this B&B was my niece was marrying nearby and I needed somewhere central and Dowgill House was certainly that. On arrival Tim was there to greet us and within 5 mins we were shown our room. The room was clean, well decorated and tastefully furnished with plenty of space and the en-suite was spotless with lovely fluffy towels. Tim and Helen had supplied a folder with information on the history of Dowgill House and also of the surrounding areas, a nice touch and most helpful. Breakfast was superb with a good selection to choose from.
The building is Grade II listed and has been wonderfully renovated with most of its original features and a lovely garden to the rear; they even their own wild rabbit.
Its location is great and Otley itself is a lovely market town with plenty of restaurants and pubs and central to the countryside and many historic places and the cities of Harrogate, York and Leeds. If I ever visit the Yorkshire Dales again I would certainly be staying again with Helen and Tim as they make you feel at home.
