I have just returned from The Head, having stayed there with husband and small dog. We were made very welcome by the owners and had a beautifully clean, well-equipped and large room, in a private garden area. The food was delicious and very good value for money. The breakfasts were plentiful and we felt very happy with the service. We... More

We booked for one night here to follow on from a day walking in nearby Ingleton. Wow, what a gem. The B & B 'rooms' are more like suites - ours had an entrance hall, settee & (small) dining table, as well as the standard bed, wardrobe & bathroom. The bed? As comfortable as any I have any slept in.... More

A group of 5 of us stayed whilst doing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks. Elizabeth and the team were accommodating from start to finish, tailoring our stay to our needs. The accommodation was exactly what we needed after a long trek, beds were comfortable, showers were great and the food was absolutely excellent. What made the whole stay though was how... More

The wonderful friendly welcome from Elizabeth actually started even before we arrived via her email to confirm our booking, (through booking.com). The Head B&B was easy to find on the rural back roads (SatNav) and with a huge parking area next to the accommodation. The Room was well appointed; settee; double bed; small dressing table; all the usual appliances; and... More

We thought we would try The Head for our last evening meal after spending a week in the area. We were greeted by the proprietors and both were very welcoming and chatty. It was early evening and the bar/lounge was quite empty but they had plenty of tables reserved, which was a good sign of the place being popular. We... More

Good sized family room with comfy furnishings. We found the double bed a little soft. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty and served in traditional pub surroundings. Big car park so no problem there. The garden outside is very pretty, full of flowers and birds. The pub is quite isolated though handy for Sedbergh. The very rural location is great if... More
