Once again we have spent another week from the 1st to the 8th July at this wonderful hotel.

Lovely decor, wonderful food, and perfect hosts, Gill & Ron make you so welcome, and cannot do enough to make your stay memorable.

Booked for the same time next year.

Treat yourself to a wonderful experience. When we came across Moorlands on Trip Advisor it sounded too good to be true but it is everything that others have described. It is sometimes listed under B&B’s but is really a very high quality country manor style house. Gil and Ron are very relaxed and welcoming and have decorated the manor house beautifully. Our room had a spectacular view straight down the valley from which we could watch the local wild pheasant stroll around the grounds, watch the colours change as the sun was setting and we would wake to nothing but the sound of birds. Levisham village is a small, very tidy town with a great community feel and a surprisingly busy pub for the size of the village and has good pub meals. Be warned though, if you experience one of Ron’s superb gourmet sittings first up you might never consider venturing to the pub at all. Breakfast was equally of a very high standard and all the more enjoyable for a morning chat with Gil. Levisham’s location is ideal for exploring North Yorkshire by car and the Levisham station is also close by to access the heritage steam train or regular train service. If we lived close by in UK or Europe instead of Australia we would make an annual pilgrimage to Moorlands.

The Moorlands Country House is in principle a B&B (resident hosts, no reception, fixed meal times), but with the comfort and style of a boutique hotel. If you like the “home-from-home” feel of the best type of B&B and like being spoiled with lots of luxury and superb food, you’ll love this place.

The house is a large renovated former vicarage, beautifully situated with stunning views in an isolated village – absolute peace and quiet. On the first floor are four sumptuously-furnished bedrooms with top-modern en-suite bathrooms, on the ground floor are the very cozy and comfortable guest lounge and the dining room. Everything is luxurious, immaculately maintained and spotlessly clean.

Breakfast is simply superb. Everything that can be home-made (muesli, marmalades, yoghurt, etc.) is home-made, fresh fruit salad, freshly pressed juice, eggs from own chickens, local bacon (the best I’ve ever tasted), and so on. Wonderful!

Dinner is a highlight of each day. Three courses, with a choice of three dishes for each course (you make your choice at breakfast-time for dinner in the evening), and coffee in the lounge afterwards. How they manage the logistics of this with just 4 couples dining is beyond me, and in 10 days we never saw a dish repeated. The type of food I would call “home cooking for guests”, with a standard of preparation and presentation very few have the talent to achieve. This is real cooking from scratch with fresh ingredients and often hours of preparation.

The resident hosts Ron and Gill are simply nice people, and you are treated as if you are personal and very spoiled guests in their own home. Early retirees, I think they have thrown themselves into running Moorlands because they love doing it. And it shows – the level of friendliness and helpfulness is unbelievable. If you need help with anything, however ridiculous, just ask – if it can be done they’ll love doing it.

A previous reviewer, who stayed at Moorlands at the same time as us, remarked to us that “this place is perfect”. That sums up our view exactly.

We stayed at the Moorlands Cottage and it was wonderful, everything you could need was supplied, from dressing gowns shower gels to the lovely homemade bread left for us after our journey. Gill & Ron gave us such a warm welcome. I could not recommend the Moorlands highly enough; the gardens and views are wonderful.

This hotel shines above others, Ron on his delightful cooking and Gill on the decor and cleanliness of the rooms, Gill's humour will stay with us until our next visit in September.
This was our first visit but will certainly not be our last, the surrounding area and the views are outstanding we could not have wished for a better holiday.

Room Tip: Room 2 looks over the back garden and pond, with plenty of wild life

We had an outstanding few days in the North Yorkshire Moors at the Moorlands Country House Hotel, Levisham.

The weather was at its very best in October and views wonderfully clear.

There is always a warm welcome from Gill and Ron.

The Hotel accommodation and attention to detail is excellent.

Ron's food is very appealing.

The Moorlands deserves its Tourism Awards.

We are booked in and looking forward to our 2012 visits.

Room Tip: All rooms are of a high standard.
