My partner and I stayed at Holmedale last summer and have been meaning to write a review ever since. This place is really special. Ben and Helen are so kind and helpful and make a wonderful breakfast.
It wasn't in the least old fashioned, stuffy or full of the bores that BnBs used to be (no tv room, no curfew, no old lady who yells at you for making noise as you come home at night.) It was peaceful, clean, spacious, well appointed and right in the middle of the Dales. There's ample parking right in front of Holmedale outside the Church of St Oswald.
We stayed in the St Oswald room (named for its view, presumably.) It was huge and the bed was sooooooo comfy. There is a DVD player in the room and DVDs in the hallway if you can stay awake for a movie after a day in the Dales! There's a kettle and a constant supply of tea. The bathroom is big and clean with its own window overlooking the church.
Ben and Helen had great recommendations for walks, packed lunches, meals and pubs. We followed their advice to great success. (Our tip: book for dinner, don't just show up, and don't forget that dinner happens very early in this part of the world.)
Finally - as if the breakfasts weren't great enough, we decided to have Helen bake us a cake (you can order one if you give 24 hours notice) to take to our friends in Wales, the next stop on our trip. It was delicious, and what's nicer than a home-made cake to take away with you at the end of your stay?!
Don't hesitate to stay at Holmedale - it made a perfect home for walks, horse riding, dairy touring, and relaxing.
