“Just perfect”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

We stayed for two nights and it was perfect. Warm welcome by lovely hosts. The room at the back overlooking the fields was beautiful and the bed was so cosy (gorgeous bedding) and the room was spotless. Nothing was too much trouble and we had the best breakfast I have had for a long time (I dont normally 'do' breakfast, but could not resist). Will definately stay again!

We stayed here overnight whilst walking the Herriot Way long distance footpath. Wayne welcomed us with tea/coffee and cake in the lounge. The bedroom was large, immaculate, beautifully furnished with a huge comfortable bed and a lovely en-suite. Breakfast was good especially the fresh fruit. The house is conveniently situated and very good value for money. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The double room at the back has lovely views.

In a place like Hawes that has lots of places to stay and at all about the same sort of price? it's the little extra touches and going the extra mile provided by Jan & Wayne that makes Wensleydale House stand out as a place that we would certainly recommend to you!!

The hotel well placed and just a short walk for the town, the 'Hardraw' double room we booked was very clean, spacious and bed very comfortable, the big bath with lots of hot water a shear delight and bonus to our stay after a long day's walking in yet more rain!! The offer of a pot of tea on our arrival was welcome, having the local weather at breakfast makes sense and providing guests with a jug of 'real' milk for drinks a superb idea.

As for breakfast lots of choice and with yoghurt, real fruit & berries to start your day a nice touch, the full english cooked by Wayne was absolutely mouth watering,very tasty and made with top quality local produce - what more could you want? Overall nothing was too much trouble and the offer to dry out wet & soaked clothes in their tumble dryer was much appreciated!!

All in all a very we were very placed with our stay and will certainly return - hopefully in a summer that has sun??

A really lovely B&B. We were welcomed with a cup of tea and cake on arrival, most appreciated as we were on a walking holiday. The twin room is lovely and spacious, very clean. Excellent breakfast, good quality and well-cooked. Very good value for money. An all-round great experience!

Arrived on a wet and windy day to be greeted with roaring open fire and hot drinks. The hospitality throughout our stay was second to none. Our en-suite room was spacious, with a wonderfully comfortable larger than average bed and excellent views. (The stagsfell room).
The hosts are extremely friendly and very good compay. Breakfast served between 8 and 9am was scrumptious, plenty of choice and always served with plenty of bonhomie. A delightfull place to stay and we will certainly go back.

Room Tip: The Stagsfell room is delightful
