“A Nice B&B with a wonderful hostess”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Ashfield House is a nice little B&B right on the street as you come into Danby Wiske. It is a very easy walk from Richmond, perhaps too short a walk for some Coast to Coasters who need to continue on a bit further, but if you do stay you will find Jean to be a lovely hostess who will accommodate you with anything you need. She is very fun to talk with and is interested in all her guests. There is a pub nearly next door for your lunch and dinner needs. Although Wainwright wasn't too fond of the Danby Wiske area (mostly because it wasn't his beloved Lake District and he thought it flat and boring), we on the other hand, found the walk to be absolutely beautiful and totally peaceful and enjoyed it immensely.

We received a warm and friendly welcome from Jean. We were a bit disappointed to be given a twin bedded room instead of the double en-suite I'd booked but I think that was because we were the only ones staying that night. Good breakfast with plenty of choice. The White Swan was doing meals and Jean had warned them we would be eating there. It was an excellent meal and the place had a friendly atmosphere, had good conversation with the landlord as he knew our part of the country and was also a runner.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Ashfield House. It's a warm, welcoming family house and you just feel at home straight away. Like others we benefited from the pub not serving food the night we were there (good beer though!) so we ate at Ashfield House. I'm sure it would be a pain for them always to do food but, golly, it was nice that they did - thank you!

The room was very comfortable and well-appointed and we had a lovely quiet night's sleep.

Great breakfast and excellent packed lunch, thank you!

As others have pointed out Danby Wiske is not a screaming metropolis of bright lights and funky action. However, if you are doing the C2C and need somewhere to stay rather than blast across the plain for eternal miles, this is your place and we warmly recommend it.

It may look like an ordinary suburban house but this B&B is a hidden gem. Spotlessly clean with good comfortable beds, we were welcomed with a big smile from Charlotte, standing in for the owner, when we arrived. The nearby White Swan is usually the only place in the village to eat (and get any food) but with its landlord away it wasn't providing meals when we were there. When we checked in Charlotte told us she would be cooking for all the guests that night to make sure we didn't go hungry. Home cooking at its best, one of the best meals of the Coast to Coast. Don't expect this every night, you just have to hope the White Swan isn't doing food. This is a great place to stay and justifies breaking the Richmond to Ingleby Cross stage in half. Thoroughly recommended.

It has to be said there is not a huge amount happening in Danbe Wiske, however for a coast to coast stop off there is a pub with good food which is just round the corner from this B&B. the B&B had a good sized room was very clean and the owner was very helpful. Breakfast was good and was good to go the following morning

Stayed one night whilst walking Coast to Coast. Jean made every effort to make us comfortable and welcome. Tea / Coffee making facilities in room but also in the guest lounge / kitchen adjacent to the downstairs guest room. Area for walking boots, washing / drying for nominal fee and use of outdoor clothes dryer for the odd item rinsed through. Good breakfast with usual cereals plus one not seen before on C2C, toast and hot "English" plus fresh fruit. Decent sized room compared to some C2C B&B. if in area would I stay again. An unqualified "Yes"

Room Tip: Downstairs room is adjacent to the guest lounge

There isn't a lot on offer in Danby Wiske. Somewhere to break up a long day. Jean is very hospitable and lovely. The small room was very clean. Breakfast was good. Wifi was hopeless , though Jean commented the whole village has the same problem. It is just meters from the pub and directly en route.
