Sevenford House
Ranked #1 of 46 Pickering B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 November 2013

We stayed at the B&B for a couple of nights in September while on a driving holiday in Britain. Parking was free and off street which was great. Finding the venue proved quite a challenge as the address we had was not sufficient for the GPS so make sure you get clear directions before you arrive!

It was worth it though! The house is beautiful historic one set in a lovely green area. Our room was on the first floor and had a view towards the moors. The room was large enough and had extra seating. The bathroom was a little small (shower only) but typical of the older properties that have had ensuites retrofitted. The bed was large and comfortable.

Our host Ian was very welcoming and offered us lots of information of all that was to see and do based on our interests. He went out of his way to make us comfortable and would take the time to sit and chat if that was what we wanted. It was my husband's birthday while there so our hosts recommended and booked the hotel (a pleasant walk down the road) for the occasion. We ate there each night which was quite good - especially as we didn't have to drive (after being in the car all day).

The B&B was in a good location to see the Yorkshire moors. Upon Ian's recommendation we filled each of our days well and were very pleased with what he had suggested. We drove to Whitby,visited the town of "Heartbeat" (Goathland aka Adensfield), visited an interesting historic steam railway (with workshop) at Grosmont and drove through much of the moors area.

Ian was also able to recommend (and provide maps) for those who were wanting to walk some of the many walking trails in the area.

Breakfast was included in our tariff and this was plentiful and pleasant - it kept us going all day!

We would have no hesitation recommending this residence to anyone wanting to stay in the Yorkshire moors' area both for its location, the standard of the accommodation and the welcome from its hosts.

Splendid house, warm welcome, delicious breakfast in the middle of North York moors.
I hope to come back some day.

Linda and Ian are consummate B&B hosts. Their welcome was warm, the accommodations were elegant and comfortable and the breakfast among the best we had while in England. Each day, Ian helped us plan our adventures, providing great advice and excellent directions. A beautiful place to stay in the heart of the North York Moors National Park. We returned, each evening, to find a coal fire burning in the grate. With nightcaps in-hand we leafed through the many books, maps and leaflets to plan our next day's adventures.

Room Tip: All rooms have glorious views of the gardens and countryside. We stayed in room #1.

If you're looking for a b&b on the moors, this is the place to be. Central with lovely rides over the moors to return to the shelter of the valley. An immediately welcoming atmosphere and the best attention from the hosts. Beautiful house and stunning views. Breakfast was generous and excellent.

Another bonus was the award winning pub down the road. Close enough to walk to for excellent food.

Stayed for two nights and wished we had booked for longer. Linda and Ian are a lovely couple who make you feel so welcome as soon as they meet you. You are welcomed into their home and immediately you feel relaxed. We were served tea and biscuits on arrival in the library, which in itself is wonderful, an array of books, chess, etc, I'm sorry that I didn't spend more time in there. In the dining room there is a piano that guests can tinker on if they wish. We were in Room 1 which is a beautiful room, with everything you need, hairdryer, lovely soft towels, shower gels, etc. Hospitality tray with a tin of biscuits! Gazing out of the window before breakfast there were pheasants strolling about the garden, it was just so peaceful. Breakfast was wonderful, fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, fruit juice and full English. I just fell in love with this gorgeous house and surroundings. I can't wait to go back next year. But what really made this such a wonderful stay was the hospitality of Linda and Ian, really beautiful and genuine people.

We stayed her for a couple of days recently after using Trip Advisor to work it's usual magic.

We were greeted warmly, shown to our room and invited to take tea in the library on our arrival once we had settled in. A coal fire was alight on our arrival downstairs and the whole ambience at Sevenford House was fantastic. Our host provided advice on a range of local dining options and kindly offered to ring ahead to reserve a table at the restaurant we chose.

Our room was fantastically appointed, spotlessly clean and warm. Quality simply oozes out of this establishment. An added bonus was that free guest Wi-Fi was available both downstairs and in the bedroom.

In the mornings, breakfast was an absolute pleasure with a huge generous choice of fresh fruit, cereals and fruit juices and a seemingly unlimited supply of toast of all varieties. In addition we also had a" Full English " cooked breakfast which was quite superb and very generous in its proportions.

If you are looking for a top end, high quality traditional Yorkshire bed and breakfast then this is the place for you.

Excellant B&B in superb suroundings. We were made very welcome and the service was clean and quick. Breakfast had the usual but very good Engish. Also fresh fruit and yoghurt was also available.Would certainly stay again. Cycling around Rosedale is suitable for all once you get up the hill!!! There is a very good pub withing walking distance less than 1 klm
