The Old Star
Ranked #4 of 4 West Witton B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 May 2009

Pleasant room in a lovely village overlooking Wensleydale.

Barrie is very welcoming, our room (6) was a good size and had a view overlooking the valley which was lovely. Other rooms probably don't though.
Two down sides to the room - low ceilings - I'm 6ft 4 and cracked my head on the beams and the shower was the hand-held variety. It had a lovely deep bath though which was welcome after a long walk so soak the aching feet and legs.
There are tea and coffee making facilities in the room and the smallest TV I've seen for about 20 years.

There is a good breakfast and Barrie is willing to share his knowledge of the area and lend maps out if required.

Other than that, small village, Pub just across the road which sells decent food and beer at reasonable prices.

Overall pretty good standard and fair value for money

The Old Star is a small B&B on the main road through Wensleydale at West Witton. It has been run for 20+ years by the same couple who offer a warm welcome, friendly advice and a great, locally sourced breakfast. Parking is available either at the front of the property or in the pub car park opposite (the pub is also a very friendly place, frequented by locals and visitors) There's a lounge at the B&B with a wood burning stove, the rooms are warm and cosy, most are en-suite, some are downstairs and dogs & children are welcome. It's a very homely place, very much in a B&B style. Our only complaint was there were only two sockets ..... not enough sockets for kettle / hair straighteners / tv / heater and phone charger - we kept banging our heads on the tv bracket while we juggled plugs. This was a minor niggle. We will definitely be going again .... most of our fellow guests were repeat visitors which says it all.
