Cosy, friendly pub in a great location

Beautiful setting within easy distance of some wonderful walks. Bedrooms roomy & we loved the quirky names & individual styling - very cute. Bar was cosy with a lovely crackling open fire with great food & friendly, helpful staff. We will definitely be back for another stay.

Genuinely dog friendly!

This is the most dog friendly establishment we have ever been in! Although we didn't have our pooch with us, we were delighted to see a basket of dog towels by the front door, a sign that said "Your dog is welcome anywhere you are", and a sausage for all the doggy guests at breakfast! Our room was excellent, with quirky furnishings and decoration. Immaculately clean and comfortable. Fabulous toiletries and tea/coffee tray (with fresh milk in a flask on request). Can't comment on the food as we stayed for a family gathering (apart from breakfast, which couldn't be faulted, gluten free and vegetarian alternatives throughout). Excellent picturesque location in the Yorkshire Dales.
