What a great place to go for a special occasion. You are made to feel special by the friendly staff. The food is fantastic and the accommodation is excellant. In such a beautiful location, the Dales. It's the little extra touches that sets the Heifer apart from the others.

We stayed in the James Bond room for our wedding anniversary. The room was very clean with lots of attention to detail. The food was excellent. The staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble.

It was time to return to one of our firm favourites - The Wensleydale Heifer. Having booked well in advance we were given a lovely table in the main dining room with a perfect view of all the sumptuous dishes going out before having to decide on what to eat ourselves. The oysters were plump and as so fresh it...

This charming, boutique, family owned hotel is wonderful and well worth a visit, or two! The bedrooms are all unique, with many fun accents reflecting the name of the room. We stayed in the Chocolate Heaven Room, which is lovely with a huge bathroom that is beautifully equipped - for those who love chocolate, the fabulous array of chocolates carefully...

Visited 2 years ago for birthday celebration. This repeat visit just as good! Excellent food and accommodation once again. This is a bit above average price wise but the quality justifies it. Well worth it for a special occasion or more regularly if you have plenty of cash! Service excellent.

We had a wonderful stay with you. Your staff went above and beyond to make our anniversary special. When we arrived in our room, a red rose and helium anniversary ballon decorated the bed. We hope to visit again soon.
