Reviewed 16 August 2013

We were on a walking tour of Lady Anne's Way. We were given a choice of two rooms...one with a bath...and I was so glad of that! Wayne brought up tea and cakes soon after...we didn't ask for it...but boy was it needed. We wanted to meet his better half...Jan...but she was working. We plan to come again to enjoy their home and the great town of Hawes. Wayne was so helpful in letting us wash some clothes. He and Jim solved a few of the world's problems while doing the laundry. The breakfast was excellent. Another great win for us was that Wayne was knowledgeable about the walking tours and knew that their was a new version of the walking book for Lady Anne Way. He sent us to the shop in town which sells it...made the rest of our trip a great deal easier. Thanks for Outstanding Customer service.

Room Tip: I say always get the room with the bathtub. Although the other room was just as great...Being able...

Thank you very much for writing us such a warm & wonderful review. We really enjoyed having you stay and happy that the ensuite with the bath was just the tonic after your walk. Hope the rest of your UK trip went without a hitch. Please let us know when you are coming back this way as we would love to see you again, maybe fix a few of those world problems we didn't quite get to :-). kind regards, Wayne

This place is great. It's right in hawes, is spotless, beautifully decorated, spacious rooms, comfortable beds, amazing breakfast and over and above standard for hospitality. I will definitely be going back and highly recommend it.

Also is bike friendly and you can store your bikes in the cellar safely.

Wayne really looked after us from tea and cake on arrival to freezing our water bottles for the bike so they stayed cool! You couldn't have asked for anything else. Oh apart from the package we asked him to post for us as post office was shut, we had sent some clothes ahead as we biked there!

Thank you for taking time out after your hectic ride to write us a wonderful review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope the rest of your ride went as planned.
Happy to accept and sent parcels anytime you want to stay. It was an absolute pleasure having you all stay - we thoroughly enjoyed having our home full the life and laughter you brought with you, and will not forget the impressive transformation from road weary cyclists to the well dressed ladies going out to dine. kind regards, Wayne

Enjoyed my stay here. After cycling up from Accrington over Ribblehead on the hottest day of the year , received a wonderful welcome from Wayne. Welcoming but very relaxed just like Hawes itself. The room was good . The beds were comfy (I have a disc problem and this is important to me). Clean well appointed room , excellent breakfast . Friendly and helpful owners.

Thank you for writing us a review. We feel especially honoured as this is your first review on Trip Advisor - thank you. We are really pleased the bed was good for your back and as you boys did a fair amount of cycling, so a good night's sleep was a must !
Hope to see you both back here again, maybe on the TdF route :-) kind regards, Wayne

Very nice spacious room overlooking the field - very comfortable king size bed - nicely furnished lounge and breakfast room - excellent breakfast with fresh fruits and very good coffee and a warm welcome with tea and cake, when we arrived -- and the owner Wayne is such a nice person, always friendly and helpful and always good for a joke!
One of the best B&B we ever had in UK. We enjoyed our stay in Wensleydale House very much. Thanks!!!

Room Tip: Stagsfell Room is very quiet and has a wonderful view of the field

Thank you taking the time to write us such a wonderful review. We thoroughly enjoyed having you stay with us and hope all the good experiences you enjoyed in the Dales and of course the good coffee inspire a return visit. Would love to hear if your next coffee with your son tastes different ? kind regards, Wayne

A very pleasant welcome from Wayne (the owner) on arrival with filtered coffee and tea laid on. Back room overlooking a field was very well appointed, large, king sized bed and purpose built for guests. This is a very well run and professional B&B - a cut above most we've stayed in. Guest lounge room was available to relax in. Breakfast was excellent. Can't fault this place. Cental to everything in Hawes and a good place to stop as part of our walk along the Pennine Way.

Thanks Wayne.

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking the field (with shower in bathroom).

I know that's a boring title and I really have little to add but every 5 star review helps and it is thoroughly deserved. Very nice room, excellent breakfast and outstanding hospitality--you can tell when people love their work rather than just seeing it as "let's rent out a room and make a little cash." Nothing was too much trouble for Wayne, from bringing up a clean wine glass (!) to a station transfer--if his wife (Jan?) isn't mentioned as often, its because she's away during the week but she was also very welcoming, bringing out the tea and goodies when I trudged in for my return visit. Hawes is a pleasant town with shops and pubs and wonderful nearby walking. Highly recommended.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. You are right Jan doesn't get seen as often as me but is the right hand of WDH, so thank you so much for including us both in your review. We trust you made it home safely and are enjoying driving about in the sunshine. Please give us some notice if you are coming back this way so we can try and align some good weather with your arrival date so we can pick you up in the roadster :-) kind regards, Wayne

It was a real pleasure to stay at Wensleydale House. Clean and comfortable room, genuine hospitality, excellent fare, local knowledge and friendly good humour. Hawes, a picturesque market town, is now a favourite place. What more can I say? Just great, many thanks.
