We stayed at Sevenford in late November when the moors were frosted and everything was rather deserted except of course for the sheep. Unfortunately the proprietors were on holiday and we were greeted with a note and a cold house. Nevertheless, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in their big, empty house - a spacious and comfortable spot deep in the Yorkshire moors. The B&B, housed in a large farm house is truly a step back in time. With grand manor sized rooms, high ceilings and an eclectic collection of furniture well in keeping with this period property one can truly sense an other worldliness that is hard to describe.
Breakfast is served in one of the main rooms with a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside and loads of bunnies playing in the garden. A spacious and delightful sitting room is also generously provided to guests complete with fire, books and lots of comfortable seating – perfect when the weather cut our off season explorations short.
If you have an imagination and like magical places then Sevenford is for you - at once remote and mystical whilst at the same time full of the inviting charm that makes Yorkshire so special.
