If you are in the vicinity of Ingleton in the Yorkshire Dales and in need of a bed for
the night, you could do far worse than book in to Tim and Gloria Backhouse’s Pines
Guest House. Situated on the edge of the village but within a few minutes’
easy walking distance from the centre, The Pines offers high quality, comfortable and
well appointed accommodation with 7 guest rooms, spacious lounge, bar with pool
table and conservatory in which all meals are served. Tim and Gloria were for many
years head chef and head housekeeper at a prestigious country house hotel in the
North East of Yorkshire, but branched out on their own some few years ago when
they moved to The Pines, so their background gave them excellent experience for
running their own show. You can book either with or without evening meals, Tim
providing a selection of excellent menus across the week if you opt to eat in, all you
need to do is choose from the menu of the day in the morning. Alternatively, there are
a number of pubs within 10 minute’s walk of The Pines.
There is ample off road parking for around 11-12 cars, and they are definitely ‘biker
friendly’, with overnight secure storage for a good number of motorcycles available
under lock and key in their garage, which Tim keeps mostly empty for this reason.
Dogs are also welcome.
The Pines offers easy access to the surrounding limestone countryside with access to
caving or walking activities afforded by the area well within reach, so they are a good
base to start from. We have now stayed with Tim and Gloria on two occasions and
have had a very warm welcome and superb service each visit, so we’ll definitely be
back! Highly recommended.
