Reviewed 1 September 2010

We stayed at the Countryman for the August Bank Holiday weekend. The purpose of our visit was to completely unwind and relax and that is exactly what we did. Tony the Landlord was so welcoming and hospitable and made our stay a very pleasant one - although he is a Man City supporter and we are Sunderland that didnt make a difference even though his team was beaten 1-0 Sorry Tony!!!!! Great pub - Martin says the real ale was exceptional. Food good and the room we stayed in was very comfortable with a large bathroom with shower and bath. Would definately recommend and hope to visit again.

Thank you for staying with us and your kind review. We are glad you found the area and pub suitable and were able to relax and chill out. It has taken me some time to go through my TripAdvisor reviews and I think it is now 3 seasons since you beat us 1-0. It wont happen again although I was glad to see you maintain your Premiership status last season. It means a nearby away game and a guaranteed 6 points!!

Thank you for staying and the 6 points!

My partner and I visited last weekend. We were welcomed by both Tony the landlord, his wife and the staff as well as the local crew. We went for a quiet and gentle weekend: walking, relaxing and eating. All of these fulfilled ++. The rooms are not of the highest quality and ours did not have a bath but they were comfortable and clean. The food was fabulous and my coeliac disease was catered for with great attention. We enjoyed being here. Would certainly go back.

Thank you for staying and your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.

Just for information, the rooms have now been added to with the creation of a new family room that sleeps up to 5 adults. All the other three rooms have been refurbished within the last 3 years. Two rooms have en suite showers, such as the one you had, and the two larger rooms have ensuite bath and showers. We try therefore to offer a full range of both services and prices to suit all budgets.

My main advice don't go there. My husband and I were booked in for a four night stay at the Countryman's Inn - nobody there. When staff did arrive could not allocate a room to us. First visit to the area so not exactly a good experience. Public Bar area was unaired dark and dank. Had the look of neglect about the place. Tables consisted of old tressel sewing machines decor needed freshening up. Flies buzzing round one of the light fightings. Would not recommend this place to an enemy.

This reviewer arrived prior to the stated check in time, without prior advice. My staff came in especially to check her in. She had access to her room but did not view it. She also commented on the restaraunt not being available on the evening of her arrival. Both the check in time and restaraunt availability are clearly stated on my web site and were included in the booking confirmation sent to the reviewer. She had several weeks prior to her arrival to confirm the suitability of her booking. She did not do this.
She left the property stating that she would seek a full refund. She was in Breach of Contract and my credit card service provider, having reviewed the full facts have declined a full refund.

I believe this review is inaccurate through ommission of salient facts.

Please consider this, and the remainder of the reviews on Tripadvisor when making your choice of places to stay.

What a lovely weekend spent in this beautifully unspoiled country village. Tony was hospitable, friendly and accommodating. Liz's meals and attention to detail was second to none. Fabulous time in a gorgeous setting. Thank you

We had an enjoyable two night stay at this country hotel in Hunton. There was a very warm welcome from the owner Tony, our room was as described and very acceptable. Clean and comfy, although we did have a slight problem with the heating which was immediately rectified by him.
The food in the restaurant was very good and very reasonably priced.
It is a little out of the way but is well worth finding!

Thank you for staying and your review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and have now modernised all 4 of our rooms and replaced the heating system. Although you comment we are " a little out of the way" we are in fact only 7 miles from the A1 and midway from Bedale, Leyburn and Richmond. We are in Lower Wensleydale and both the Dales National Park and the North Yorkshire Moors National Park are easily accessible. York, Harrogate, Leeds, Newcastle are all within 1 hours drive.

Stayed for one night on a Monday. Good location as not a long drive to Leyburn, Richmond and the Dales. Warm welcome form Tony who allowed us to check in earlier. The room was lovely and clean. Complementry drinks and biscuits :) Rooms well equiped with digital tv, DAB radio and dvds. Our a stay coincided with the Monday night music in which a small band played modern classics which was just to our taste. We were happy to stay in the pub with the locals until past midnight. No rush to check out in the morning. Overall a lovely stay, would recommend to others.

Thank you for staying with us and your kind review. We are glad you found your stay comfortable. Just to update we now no longer have a regular music night. They tend to be "impromptu" and on Wednesday evenings. We also now cook on 6 nights per week.

It is however impossible to commit to a routine earlier check in each day and our standard check in remains at 18.00 hours on weekdays.

Thank you again for staying and your review. We hope to see you again.

I don't normally write reviews but feel I must for two reasons. First, as a response to Southport Lassy who seems to have had expectations that could not be met by any accommodation in a traditional country pub, and second because our stay was truely memorable for all the right reasons.
The welcome was warm and friendly, our bags being carried for us to the well equiped en-suite room we were to stay in. The meal was splendid and served in a convivial manner in homely surroundings but the best was yet to come. During our meal the locals began to arrive so that our after meal drink was enjoyed in their chatty company by the side of a log fire. We felt as though we had known Tony and his locals a long time and that we were all sharing a home from home.
Highly recommended. Walk in with a smile and an open mind and you will be rewarded.

Thank you for staying and your kind review. It is enouraging to read that we can get it right some of the time. All we strive to be is a friendly, comfortable village pub. So I guess we just have to accept that "You can please all of the people some of the time....... etc." We are pleased we were able to please you and your encouragement will ensure we try harder! ThanK you.
