Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just to say thank you to Robert and Sheila for a lovely relaxing stay great to be looked after so well. We enjoyed the sociable breakfast with the other guests. It was good that we were able to pursue our activities of walking and cycling in mixed weather! We look forward to returning.

Just returned from the Bank Holiday weekend at Cambridge House. We brought out cockapoo Paddy and in the room on arrival was a dog bowl, mat, blanket and treats. Sheila and Robert were perfect hosts with a fountain of knowledge about the area and walks. A beautiful part of the world. We did a lovely circular walk over the Swing Bridge to Gritin along the river. A very pleasant walk. The guest house is immaculate with every attention to detail. The room on the second floor had the most stunning views. The bed was so comfortable with lovely bedding. A really good nights sleep. The choice of breakfast was exceptional and the food delicious. Sheila’s prize winning marmalade was so tasty. It is a 5 minute walk to the village with its pubs, gallery, bakery and ice cream parlour so very accessible. We immensely enjoyed our stay and we will definitely be back again. Thank you

Firstly, we'd like to thank you for your excellent review. We're very pleased you enjoyed your weekend at Cambridge House and that Paddy had a good time too! Cambridge House is in an excellent location for access to miles of walks and, as you stated, a short walk from the amenities in Reeth. We hope to see you again. Best wishes, Sheila and Robert.

Just returned from a lovely stay at The Cambridge House. From super bedding, a spotless room, to crisp white table linen and a superb quality english breakfast (not forgetting the delicious homemade marmalade), we couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant stay. The hosts were warm, welcoming and great hosts. Reeth was a lovely village with three nice pubs, lots to see and do in the area. Highly recommend.

A nice stay during our walk of the Herriot Way. Good bed and shower/ bath and lovely views from the room. Seemed strange, when only two rooms were occupied, to be on the top floor up two flights of stairs, when lower floor room would have been easier on our aching feet and for lugging our luggage up to? The only B and B on the route not to deliver our luggage to the room before we arrived. Minor niggles. When asking for a payment to fill our coffee flask for the following day ( again, the only B and B to do so), please specify in your literature that the payment goes to charity, as until we found this out the following day, we were quite miffed!

Firstly, thank you for your feedback after your overnight stay whilst on your walking holiday. We’re pleased you enjoyed the views and the bed and shower. You requested a double room and the only room available on the first floor was a twin room, so we allocated you a double room on the second floor which is very popular with our regular guests for the stunning views across Swaledale towards Grinton Moor and the side view of the fields. We are more than happy to help any guest who needs assistance with their luggage, but we don’t routinely lift walkers’ bags as from past experience they are very big and in excess 20kg, over the safe limit; if we injure ourselves, we would have to close; on one occasion the bag was so heavy that the handle broke. You are the first guests ever to ‘feel miffed’ at paying £1.00 for a flask refill, which I’m sure was explained at the time, goes to either Swaledale Mountain Rescue or either of the air ambulances which cover North Yorkshire, all of which rely on donations to carry out their services; many guests give to all three just in case they need help while out walking! I hope I’ve fully addressed your comments in this response. Kind regards, Sheila.

We had a great 3 nights at Cambridge House. Sheila and Robert are great hosts, very friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. Very comfortable large house with private conservatory and lounge for guests, so you don’t feel you are intruding in someone’s home. Very comfortable bed made for an excellent nights sleep and you wake up to wonderful views over the Dales. A pleasant stroll into the centre of Reeth too. Cake and tea on arrival and a hearty, varied breakfast from a full Yorkshire to a boiled egg and most things in between! Also enjoyed a nice pat and stroke with Peggy the Golden Doodle! Very happy and relaxed break and would definitely stay here again in lovely Swaledale. Highly recommend. Matt and John.

This was out first stay at Cambridge House but it won't be our last, that's for sure. I'm sure it's all been said in the other reviews, but here goes...... Sheila and Robert are wonderful hosts, really welcoming, making time for a chat, and a mine of information for walks around the area. The bedroom ("Mether" on the top floor) was simply beautiful with the most amazing view. Location about 5 mins' walk to the village centre on the Arkengarthdale road - very quiet over night. What have I missed....... delicious home made cake (mmmm) and the most superb breakfasts. Thank you so much! Peter and Clare.

2nd time here and we really enjoyed it again. The rooms are really lovely, also nice communal rooms which you can use if desired, and the hosts could not do enough, 2 lovely people, Sheilas cakes are gorgeous so dont say no if offered. The accommodation is cosy and well appointed, nice views and quiet, the most noise you might hear is the pheasants. Its a little more pricey than the nearby pubs but absolutely worth it.

We unreservedly agree with everything written by your previous visitors, and we cannot praise Robert and Sheila too highly. They simply overlook nothing in making our stays so enjoyable each time, and we wouldn’t dream of staying anywhere else ! Thankyou both.

Lovely bedroom with fantastic views and very thoughtfully equipped to make your stay really memorable. Roaring fire in comfortable guest's lounge. Excellent substantial breakfast. Our hosts Sheila and Robert were charming and very helpful with any queries and advice on local details. Their Covid precautions made you feel very safe. If all B&Bs were like Cambridge House, hotels would be out of business. We will certainly stay here again.
