I discovered Ponden many, many years ago while walking on the Moors. Have never known any guest house to combine so exquisitely such a sense of relaxation with fantastic food and a location to outshine the best.
Brenda Taylor cooks wholesome, inspired and fragrant food in abundance. Her vegetarian options are superlative - she is vegetarian herself - but she also cooks fabulous meat dishes. There are no televisions, trouser presses and gadgetry in the rooms, and you wouldn't want them. There is artistic flair everywhere and an easy goingness which is utterly infectious.
The prices are extremely reasonable and set above a reservoir, the views are sensational. My favourite room is 'the blue room', though all of them are cosy, comfortable and furnished with idiosyncratic charm.
Conversation round the refectory table or around the fire are a joy. Very, very special with no pretension. My favourite place to be anywhere in England.

Room Tip: all rooms are quiet, naturally, but the blue and purple is my favourite because of the views and the colours.

My son and I stopped here for one night while walking the Pennine Way. The guest is actually on the route and situated in a lovely location.
Brenda is a welcoming host and the house is wonderful. There are 4 individual rooms each decorated immaculately. The lounge/diner is a fantastic place - its a great place to relax. Brenda cooks a great 3 course evening meal for £18 per person (Bring your own alcohol if you like). Breakfast is excellent and set us up for a long day.
I decided at the time that I would re-visit with my wife - I have now done this.
