High Blean is just perfect, its stunning location matched by the warmth of welcome and relaxed hospitality provided by David and Suzanne.
We booked two rooms for two nights, both were extremely comfortable, with a selection of teas, coffee, bottled water, complemented with lovely biccies. The breakfast was delicious, with an extensive choice of cereals, etc. (the home made granola is not to be missed), followed by a beautifully cooked "full English". Good fuel for a day of mountain biking (two of our party) or walking/shopping (the remainder of the party) in the Dales.
David's good advice on where to eat locally in the evening (The Crown Inn, Askrigg) and local events of interest (Leyburn's food festival) was much appreciated, and gladly acted upon.
In summary - highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- High Blean is an old house, built in 1674, which retains many of the original features while offering two good sized, comfortable letting rooms. We are situated in Raydale overlooking Semer Water, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, which is quite remote, being 2 mile out of Bainbridge, 4 mile from Askrigg and 5 mile from Hawes but surrounded by stunning landscapes. Room One is the larger of our two letting rooms and has the benefit of a bath with shower over in the en-suite. This room can be made up as a twin if necessary. Room Two is smaller and has a shower in the en-suite. The room has a king sized bed and a good view of the lake. Both rooms have a flat screen TV, hair-dryer and tea & coffee making facilities. The rooms are available for occupation any-time from 15:00 to 19:00 but we are unable to check in guests arriving after 19:00. Check out time is no later than 10:30am Raydale is a hidden gem and much quieter than Wensleydale or Swaledale, which is ideal for those seeking peace and quiet and makes it ideal for cycling and walking, or just to sit, listen and take in the rugged beauty of the area. Semer Water, the subject of much myth and legend, fills the valley floor and is a haven for birds, as well as being open for sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, and fishing, it is also a venue for wild swimming. ... more less
