“Charming quiet pub”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Great location with really helpful staff. The accommodation is basic but very clean and adequate without being glamorous Very helpful staff and a great pub atmosphere. The food is simple but enjoyable. Location is quiet and picturesque with lovely walks.

My husband took me for a weekend away with my sister and her partner for our birthdays. I was expecting a pub with a few rooms above which would be in a great location for the dales. It is so much more. The hotel has about 13 rooms and both of ours were lovely. Very comfy beds and great powerful large double shower. Breakfast was great too. We ate there both nights, We were only planning on eating there once but the food was great. Lovely home cooked meals so we stayed in both nights. The best bit about this lovely hotel is the staff. Emily (one of the owners I think) couldn't do enough for us and was so friendly it made our weekend. She even offered to tumble our clothes after a walk in the pouring Yorkshire rain. Free wifi just topped it all off when my husband could watch the rugby on our iPad! We love the Dales and have stayed in a few more pricey hotels but I think this is my favourite. Try it......

My wife and I stopped here for a rest as we rode part of "Stage 1" on our tandem. Despite it being before opening time we were allowed to wait around and had a very refreshing half-pint before continuing on our way. Thank you very much to the very friendly barmaid.

Just got back today from two lovely nights at the Wheatsheaf. We took the dog with us they charged £10.00 for the dog to stay. He was able to come and sit under the table at breakfast in the snug area, and dogs are allowed in the bar at night. He was allowed in the room, and the owner offered us towels if needed to clean him. Lovely walks right from the door, nice 7 mile one which takes in waterfalls and a castle. Emily and her staff were very helpful, and filled our flask every morning when asked. The breakfast was very tasty and toast and tea was refilled if requested. We ate in the bar each night the food was lovely especially the burger and puddings. We will defiantly return to this hotel and this part of the country. Make sure you take everything with you need as no shop in the village and its 9 miles to get to the town. Thank you Emily and the team for a lovely stay we have come back very relaxed and refreshed ready for work.

Room Tip: We had a room over the bar, this was a little louder on Friday night, with people talking in the bar...

We have just thoroughly enjoyed a 2 night stay at the Wheatsheaf in Carperby.The inn is reassuringly traditional with mod-cons for those who require them.If you want a 'get away from it all and relax' place to stay then book here. The welcome is warm and the whole ambience of the place is homely and comfortable.This does not mean the inn lacks class, as the place is owned by 2 fantastic ladies, Emily + Clare who,along with their staff really work hard to ensure your every need is met and more. If you want a contemporary wine bar experience book elsewhere but if you want a genuine welcome with clean,comfy rooms,a good menu and a friendly bar with a log fire-look no further,they also allow dogs.Our kids aged 12 and 14yrs loved it,even the walk across fields and woodland to Aysgarth Falls. Thank you Clare + Emily,Adam + nippers,Cuddlyman + Co will be back!! XX

Room Tip: The road at front of hotel is a busy one but I can honestly say it didn't bother us.

Beautiful, Relaxing, Welcoming

What can I say about the wheatsheaf, the hundeds before me havent said about this perfect weekend break destination.
The Wheatsheaf Inn is perfectly situated within the heart of the village of Carperby in Wensleydale an ideal base if you want to just relax or explore the magnificent Yorkshire Dales.
Nothing was two much for the staff even providing walking packs, some local knowledge or even if you wanted a pack lunch
After a long day out walking it was lovely to get back to the the very comfortable room.
Excellent menu if you choice to eat in, we did and throughly enjoyed the home cooked food.
All I can say to round this review off is Claire and Emily
WE WILL DEFINITELY BE RETURNING

Stayed one night last week as a family of 4. Modern, clean, comfortable room. Lovely pub, friendly staff, good atmosphere and quite possibly the best chicken curry I have ever eaten! Fantastic food! Would highly recommend for either a meal or overnight stay.
