We stayed at the Wheatsheaf for the weekend with our Springer Spaniel to do some walking. This is an amazing location for some beautiful walking in the Yorkshire Dales. We have stayed at 'dog friendly' hotels in the past only to arrive to a list of do's and don'ts! Not at the Wheatsheaf, they could not have been warmer or...

A lovely clean place to stay. Good food and nice room. Friendly staff very helpful. We don't usually have to pay for our little pooch when we go away so £10 for one night not in our favour. It was freezing when we arrived but our room was lovely and warm. Would recommend this place to stay.

We visited the Wheatsheaf about a year ago and we were just as impressed this time as we were last. It is a country pub with a pleasant atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, good food and clean, well furnished accommodation. It is set in the pleasant and interesting village of Carperby with numerous walks surrounding the village. We are returning...
