En route to friends up in Yorkshire, we decided to detour off M.1 (tedious) and go via the Dales (neither of us had been before) & this seemed a fairly good central location and had Chatsworth House nearby.
We accepted the Package of B&B and Dinner and felt that it represented a good deal. The Dinner was super, fresh, wholesome, nicely cooked & well-presented with attentive Service. Breakfast was wonderful - a full cooked to order Option and excellent buffet spread - Coffee was brilliant too, as was the Service.
Our only overheads were Newspapers, Bar/Wine and Chatsworth House tickets.
It is obviously a very old House (no idea of its actual age) converted some years ago into a Hotel. Note I did not say modernised. Most of the floors are uneven, ceilings are low, doors were invariably not square and most of the windows are leaded-glass. Some of the furnishings are a bit eclectic (uber modern in our opinion) and out-of-place in such a classic old house - odd ! Many wobbled on the uneven floors too. But then - seriously old houses with uneven floors ... adds to the character, we feel.
Delightful snug bar with roaring open log fire ! Fabulous on that evening when it was freezing out.
Delightful stay in a delightful part of the World.
