My wife has written the following review; I support her entirely.
Although we had eaten very well at the Red Lion on a previous occasion, we had never stayed there. Knowing the spectacular location and atmosphere we were looking forward to breaking our journey on the Wharfe between Northumbria and Devon. We booked for one night. Travelling with our two dogs we were offered use of a "cottage" for £150. Being aware of the "luxury" aspect of the Red Lion we were very disappointed to find our cottage bleak and tattily furnished. The main bedroom (one of two) was cramped. An uninviting bathroom (not e/s) was not helped by a shower that didn't work, and the sitting room was overheated (radiator unadjustable - fortunately the windows opened) and smelly. These were all things that couldn't be fixed overnight so we made no comment when we checked out, although had we been asked if we'd enjoyed ourselves we would have informed the staff. The location of the cottages is spectacular - about 4 feet from the Wharfe. What a pity they are not more attractive. We felt this was an outrageous price to pay for one night.
