This was a weekend break at the 18th Century Coach House, via a 'Dealmonster' offer of 2 nights B&B and afternoon tea. We thought a real bargain.
All the staff were lovely and very obliging, and our room (Whernside)was very clean and comfortable, with a high vaulted beamed ceiling, and nicely furnished. The Inn's interior is rather dark, but it is old and quirky and we thought rather charming. Especially in the evening when the fires are lit and lamps are on.
We had an excellent evening meal, beautifully cooked and presented,.comprising a starter of grilled goatscheese and cherry tomatoes, with a warm salad, croutons and olives with a pesto dressing. My main was a delicious braised venison suet pudding in a rich red wine gravy, with garlic and rosemary roast potatoes, and a mixture of seasonal vegetables, and a treacle sponge for desert. My partner had a similar 3 courses and the bill came in at about £45 - £50 which we thought was reasonable for this quality of meal.
The Inn is on the main street, in the centre of the village, and there are shops, (including specialist shops and galleries,) pretty cafes, and another pub. There's also a bank and 24hr cash machine right next door. But of course the coach house is a perfect base for exploring further afield. Ingleton Falls were good but a bit overpriced we thought at £6.00 each, so we'd recommend going a little further to Skipton or to Hawes, a delightful little place in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales surrounded by the most beautiful countryside.
After a good night's sleep we enjoyed very hearty and generous breakfasts with all the trimmings including fried bread and black pudding! Excellent. We really couldn't fault it.
The only gripe, and it's very minor, was the lack of toiletries in the bathroom. We had to go out and buy our own soap, so maybe they could provide some in the future.
But that tiny quibble aside, we had a very pleasant and relaxing stay and would happily return another time to the Coach House.
