Old Stoney Bank is a very elegantly restored and spacious stone house sat on the south side of a wooded valley on a quiet lane, just outside New Mill. Anne and Ian were excellent hosts and both the house and our room were very comfortable, while also being beautifully and tastefully decorated. I wanted to swap our Harrogate home for here but my wife wouldn't let me!
Anne is happy to accommodate children and pets, which is unusual for such a beautiful home and the couple are particularly family friendly, as evidenced in their attention to a young family who were fellow guests.
The immediately surrounding valley is very attractive, a car is definitely advisable given the rural location and distance from the nearest railway stations, although you could manage with public transport and taxis alone if necessary.
