“Views to die for”
Reviewed 4 May 2013

This 5star b&b is is in the most beautiful place, looking out over hill and dale. The 2 suites are very generously sized with everything you could need there including a sherry decanter. The hosts Andy and Jane cannot do enough for you. Breakfast was a meal that lasted the day and lots of choice. We will be going back again and it seems looking thru the comments book, they have lots of return business - that must say a lot.

This is not just a B&B, it is a ministry of kindness and care. I felt pampered as soon as we drove into the car park and then it got better & better. The views outside and the level of comfort inside are fantastic. Andrew & Jayne did everything they possibly could to provide for our needs and deserve all the credit given in the reviews.

This place is a hidden gem, it has amazing views - panoramic views across West Yorkshire, the most hospitable hosts I've come across and the breakfast is another matter altogether.

We stayed in the upstairs suite, which is absolutely beautiful, decorated to a wonderfully high standard with stunning picture windows to appreciate the view. We were able to have a late breakfast, which given the array of options was much appreciated. Jayne and Andrew offer the best breakfast we've had in a long time, and it certainly set us up for the day afterwards. Nothing is too much trouble for them both.

Like everyone else that's ever stayed at Ackroyd House, there simply isn't anything to criticise and will be heading back soon!

Top o' the Bank and Top o' our list - by a mile. A one-off weekend for a birthday celebration but one which we will repeat even without an 'excuse'. Jayne and Andrew have done the most incredible job of transforming their beautiful home into one which they can share with others. As has been so aptly put before us : "It’s all been said by reading other guests comments. We’ve been thoroughly spoilt." We left feeling as house-guests, not paying guests, as the impression is as far from being the customer of a business as it is possible to get. Truly home from home - except that the views are miles better, the breakfast is better, the beds are as comfortable, the rooms are bigger, the furnishings are stunning - and even the dog is a treasure ! These two lovely people are truly deserving of the accolades they have received - may they continue to make this little corner of Yorkshire truly representative of its reputation for many years to come. A heartfelt thank-you for breaking the monotony of hotel mediocrity staffed in the main by people who couldn't care less. Truly a breath of fresh (Yorkshire) air. M & M.

This must be the best place to stay in Yorkshire. The service is 5 star and both Andrew and Jayne could not do enough to make our stay memorable. Such attention to detail and comfort and the sincerity of a lovely couple made our stay so enjoyable. (not forgetting Snoops - for our daily exercise). We were thoroughly spoilt and will certainly be back.

The house is magnificent, the room is outstanding in every way, the views are second to none, the breakfast is to die for and top that with the most welcoming owners you will ever come across and there my friends, you have Ackroyd House. An experience not to be missed, Why on earth would you stay anywhere else? Trina and Steve, Norfolk.

Room Tip: There are only two rooms, both magnificent. Upstairs has the must see view.

If you want a great breakfast, and a wonderful garden to relax in then pick Ackroyd House. We stayed in the Valley View Suite which was a lovely room to relax in. We found the accommodation a really serene place to stay. We were going on to a wedding but we could have easily have stayed another day here to unwind. You may think it is hard to find but just keep going up the very top of the road until you can go no further then you reach it. Andrew and Jayne were very accommodating and helpful during our time there.
