Breakfast is a real treat at Raines Close. For the health conscious there is a wide selection of fruit and muesli and yoghurts and for those with an appetite there is of course a first rate cooked breakfast. There's a view out of the window, gentle music playing, and good conversation with your hosts who are friednly and knowledgeable about the area. And that's what makes a grea B&B I think, the quality of the hospitality, not just the room, and David and Geraldine could not have been more hospitable. Don't get me wrong, the room was fine, charming in fact, clean and comfortable, but the welcome is the thing I will remember for some time to come.
Raines Close is on Station road, and positioned perfectly for the start/end of the Tour de France cycle route from Grassington (go to the Dales tourist website for a list of day rides and routes). I was there during the Grassington Festival which was just great, a buzz and an atmostphere about the whole place that was just so relaxing. For the cyclist this a perfect place to stay, a garage to store bikes, and breakfast portions to suit the appetites of people setting out for a long day in the saddle. Highly recommended.
