Positive Reviews

Scenic, quiet location in between national parks

Reviewers often spoke highly of this guest house's tranquil riverside location in a Yorkshire village nestled between the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park and Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Walkers taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks appreciated the proximity of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent mountains. Furthermore, the Lake District National Park was also within striking distance. Drivers welcomed the free parking and easy access to the A65, A683 and M6 for uncomplicated trips to Lancaster, Kendal, local attractions, museums, golf courses and places to eat.

Upbeat about rooms

The comfortable, clean and well-maintained rooms with en suite bathrooms and reliable free Wi-Fi won plaudits from travellers. There was also praise for the picturesque river and countryside views on offer.

Tasty breakfasts and good customer service

Guests often said this family-run property felt like a home away from home thanks to its helpful, pleasant and welcoming hosts, who were brimming with useful local knowledge. The cooked breakfasts featuring locally-sourced ingredients were described by diners as filling and delicious. Vegetarians liked the availability of meat-free options.

Negative Reviews

Critics noted drawbacks in some rooms

Light sleepers said they were occasionally able to hear noise from adjacent rooms rather easily. Some critics also remarked that certain rooms felt a bit small, particularly when fully occupied.

Rural location best suited drivers

Due to the limited availability of public transport options in the area, access to this property was reportedly easiest for those with their own transport. However, there were railway stations a short taxi ride away.

Payment arrangements weren't ideal

Several guests claimed they were taken by surprise by this property's preference for cash payments. For the unprepared, it sometimes meant they suddenly had to access extra cash, which wasn't always straightforward in a rural area.
