Visited Park House recently with family from the USA. On arrival we were welcomed by Ian who, after showing us to our rooms, kindly provided us with tea and cake.
My wife & I had opted for the luxury room which proved to be well worth the extra small charge. The room was spotless and nicely decorated, a comfortable king size bed and a generous closet for hanging clothes. Good selection of tea/coffee with fresh milk and water available from the fridge in the adjacent sitting area. The private bathroom is not en-suite but immediately next door so this was not a problem. Spacious and very well appointed, with a whirlpool bath.Lovely to relax in after a busy day, and you can also watch TV whilst soaking in the bath. Just a hand shower so not so good for those who prefer a shower.
Breakfast was a typical 'Yorkshire Fare' with a wide selection to meet all tastes. It goes without saying most of the food was locally sourced.
The B & B does have the benefit of the privately owned Abbey just across the road. During our stay Ian entertained us with the trials and tribulations of owning and maintaining the Abbey.
A short but very sweet stay - the family from the USA were suitably impressed with our choice.
