“Head Hits The Heights”
Reviewed 13 April 2011

The Head at Middleton near Sedbergh in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales provides excellent accommodation and good food and service. Their chalet style rooms mean that not only do you have almost total privacy but they also represent excellent value especially for a family or party of five with prices starting at £85 per night for a five-bed chalet.
The rooms are warm, clean and have TV and tea and coffee-making facilities and even have a range of books and magazines for those who are not knocked out by their day's activities and require a little light reading matter to help them enter the Land of Nod.
Breakfast times are to suit all and the meal itself is enough to set anyone up for the day. Put it this way it was sufficient to set this 55-year-old bonviveur up for a 50-mile plus mountain bike ride back to another Middleton in Greater Manchester on the day off his departure after a superb three-night stay.
I for one will definitely be going back - if they'll have me!

Stayed here walking the dales way. Rooms were clean and comfortable in a separate building at the back surrounded by a lovely residents only garden. Service was brilliant and they couldn't have done more for you. The dog loved it as well

Set amongst rolling Dales countyside, The Head is a country pub, with 3 letting ensuite family rooms built out into the lovely wild flower gardens.( No problems with any bar noise at the weekends) Our terrier was made very welcome and was allowed into the bar.Good doggie walks nearby.The Food was good quality pub grub..we feasted on local Barnsley lamb chops.The breakfast, taken in the bar was relaxed , informal and like being at home.Nothing was too much trouble for Elizabeth, we enjoyed her hospitality.If you want a home from home, this could be it. We will definitely return.
