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.
