We stayed for two nights at river House but wished it had been much longer. We were welcomed, by our friendly hosts, into their warm, comfortable house. Our room was clean and the bed was so comfy. After a walk over the hills to Malham Tarn, in 4 inches of snow, we returned to sit by the woodburner in the... More

We stayed for just one night (but wish it had been longer), in a lovely clean room that was traditionally furnished, in this gorgeous guest house. Breakfast was great, with a good choice of cereal/fruit, followed by a delicious cooked breakfast, and toast. Little touches, such as homemade flapjacks on the hospitality tray, and a hot water bottle if needed,... More

We visited River House for a relaxing weekend and it exceeded expectations. The village is quaint beyond belief with stunning local landscapes to explore. The house itself is homely and characterful and our room was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. We had a very warm welcome from our extremely helpful hosts; one afternoon we decided to sit on the sofas... More

We were beautifully looked after in this interesting house. Alex & Ann were friendly, informative, and gave us delicious breakfasts and homemade biscuits or cake with the tea/coffee tray in the room. There was a woodburning stove making a cosy corner which was lovely to return to after a day out walking. A good base to explore the delights of... More

Rooms were comfortable, breakfast was lovely and the owners were lovely too. If I was to be really picky the shower was a bit weak and the loo... More
