This had such good reviews that a friend and I visiting the area decided to try it. It is a truly lovely place, with excellent service by the owners and very handy for Richmond center and the castle. The rooms are characterful as the building date back to the 16c! History abounds including the story of Mr Willance. Bedrooms very...

Thank you for your lovely comments and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and found your breakfast superb. We discovered that the main A1 road had been closed overnight on the night of your stay and that although it is 4 miles or so way some traffic had been diverted through the town. We are very pleased that...

After a freindly welcome we were shown our room, No3, by Sandra. It is at the back of the house and, if the mist hadn't been in the way, we could have seen the castle (just)! The room is spacious, very clean and decorated nicely. It has a feature iron fireplace. The bay window had a window seat. The king...

We have just spent two nights at this fantastic guest house, we were greeted by Colin who showed us to our delightful room, then he offered us tea or coffee with the most delicious scones in the lounge area. Our room was warm, cosy, spotlessly clean with everything we needed. The bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom was great again...

Excellent hosts, Sandra and a Colin could not do enough for us. Hotel was within easy walking distance and Colin was very knowledgeable regarding places to get an evening meal within walking distance. Parking is on the street but it is at a premium, we managed to park a little up the road from the hotel. The room was warm,...

Stayed just one night and I have to say we were thoroughly looked after. Great food, really good room with ensuite, great location. I wouldn't hesitate to come back, and I can't recommend it highly enough. Willance is situated on Frenchgate which is one of the most interesting streets I have seen architecturally.

By far the best quest house we have stayed in anywhere in England. The hospitality shown to my husband and myself by Colin and Sandra was exceptional.....and Colin makes delightful shortbread! The house is situated within walking distance of the market town and there are numerous restaurants around. All within walking distance. We tried the Italian Restaurant and this did...

Absolutely fabulous guest house run by very friendly owners, Colin and Sandra. Rooms are exceptionally comfortable and immaculately clean. The breakfasts were lovely and are cooked to order with additional daily specials offered. The shortbread biscuits in our room were delicious and we later found out these had been baked by Colin. Willance House is located on a quiet road...

We have just returned home from our fourth visit to Willance House and we are as impressed now as we were when we first visited. The house is stunning, the rooms cosy and comfortable and the location is perfect, but much more impressive are Colin and Sandra's professionalism, attention to detail and kindness. We have stayed mid-Coast to Coast walk,...
