Absolutely wonderful welcome and the room we had the "Ladywell" room was just fantastic. There was heaps of room to move and a huge very comfortable bed. Jane (the owner) was a fount of information and very friendly. The food was top notch and it was a brilliant stay. I would certainly come again if I had the chance. Great country location, ideal for all kind of activities.

Room Tip: The Top Room to Have is the Ladywell Room with its huge King bed, own sitting area and huge ensuite. The Ladywell room was fantastic and I think all rooms will be good. This just had a King size very comfortable bed room and sitting room to go with it not to mention a huge ensuite.

Stayed for a weekend recently, and enjoyed a very relaxing stay with excellent service from Jane, delicious food and friendly welcome. Rooms were exceptionally clean, and the property is in a lovely rural location overlooking the adjacent Dallowgill Moor. A very comfortable stay with attentive staff. Would highly recommend!!

I stayed at the Moorhouse on the evening of Tuesday 4 October 2011 as part of a business trip. Overall, this was a very enjoyable stay. I was allocated the Hambleton room on the first floor of this quality bed and breakfast accommodation with a view over the front lawn and distant fields. The bedroom was well furnished with plenty of wardrobe space. The theme of the whole premises is along the lines of grouse shooting as the premises form part of the privately owned Dallowgill estate which has it's own grouse moor.

The bedroom was well furnished and comfortable with two single beds in this particular room. A good size bathroom also located adjacent. Room and bathroom were very clean and tidy.

I took my evening meal in the immediately adjacent Drovers Inn - A 60 second walk from bedroom to front door of the pub (Also owned by the estate). The pub claims to be one of the smallest in Britain and can accommodate about 20 people comfortably. I was warned that the meals served up by landlord Steve and his Wife Lynn were enormous - They wern't wrong. I plumped for the rump steak with chips, onion rings, peas and tomatoes which came on an enormous plate. These Yorkshire folk certainly don't skimp and the meal was cracking value which in London you would no doubt cost the best part of £20 (But£9.99 here). I followed this with a traditional spotted dick pudding and custard and a couple pints of the locally brewed Blacksheep bitter which went down a treat. Total bill just over £20.00

The locals in the pub were very friendly and despite the fact that I was on my own went out of their way to make conversation and make me feel welcome - I doubt whether that would happen in London or the Midlands where I hail from!!

The breakfast the following morning was a real credit to the Moorhouse. A limited selection of cereals, fresh fruit, juices and yoghurts prior to the main breakfast. I couldn't resist sampling the traditional Yorkshire breakfast - bacon, scrambled egg, sausages, mushrooms, hash browns, tomatoes and beans. This was a fantastic breakfast and top marks must go to the manageress of the property Jane Goodall who was very friendly and informative about the local area and its attractions. For walkers there is a way marked 6.5 mile walks around the local moors area. There is even a local business offering horse drawn carriage driving experiences.

If by any chance you are French and worried about the english language, then have no fear. Manageress Jane Goodall spent two years in France previously running a ski lodge and speaks fluent conversational French and so ordering breakfast or resolving any issues should not be a problem.

The Moorhouse apparently underwent a major renovation some 18 months ago at a cost of £90,000 to convert it from a former shooting lodge and the investment and attention to detail shows. Would I recommend this accommodation - Most definitely. The location is however a little remote and you need a car. Places such as Ripon and Harrogate are however all less than an hours drive away.

Top marks to the Moorhouse for an lovely stay.

Room Tip: If you are travelling as a couple I suggest you spend the extra £10 per night and opt for the very spacious ground floor Ladywell room. This is very spacious with a very large bathroom.
