I have been visiting Aysgarth for the past 45 years. This isn't the first time I have stayed at this hotel, I have stayed at most of the Hotels in Aysgarth, Palmer Flatt being my favourite and I have seen hosts come and go at Palmer Flatt, but I have to say Chris and Leslie are the most welcoming people you will find in this area .
I've have recently stayed for just over a month in Palmer Flatt Hotel as I needed to convalesce after my husband had been taken into care because of a dibilitating illness and I have to say I left feeling revived and ready to take on the world again.
I received 5 star service at all times. The room I stayed in was absolutely pristine with a fantastic view every morning. Everything I needed was provided. Even if I didn't feel like going down to eat, Leslie bless her would knock on the door at mealtimes and ask what I fancied to eat, if it wasn't on the menu it didn't matter, whatever I wanted was provided. If Leslie Chris or Sadie was going into the village for supplies, as I don't drive, would ask if there was anything special I needed... They treated me as one of the family.
The hotel is stacked in history with a lot of ghosts sightings, and as I am a Most Haunted fanatic, just one mention of this had both Chris and Leslie telling me all about the ghosts the hotel has, Chris even took me into the cellar to get the feel of the little boy down there. I pretty much has a nosey around the whole hotel. It is absolutely fantastic with loads of little nooks and crannies, I had great fun exploring it. Down in the bar with the log fire burning it is so homely. The food is some of the best I have had, and you know you have eaten when you eat at Palmer Flatt... Going down to Breakfast in the morning the choice's they have are abundant. The gardens to the hotel are absolutely beautiful with a great deal of wildlife, and if I fancied a little walk as I am partially disabled myself all I had to do is have a short walk through the back field and I had a beautiful view of the famous Aysgarth Falls below. I would recommend anyone wanting to Visit this beautiful part of the world, drop in and have a few nights with the Fantastic Hosts Chris and Leslie at Palmer Flatt, you won't be disappointed
My heartfelt thanks Chris and Leslie and all the staff...
