Quality counts here, with excellent support from the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. We liked the simplicity of the menu, which provided ample choice. Everything was cooked to perfection. Breakfast sheer delight and better than many five star hotels we have stayed in. The chefs even share their secrets!

Lovely special welcome with balloon. Despite high price this is good value for money. Great service, food delightful and not overpowering in volume. try to avoid Sunday lunch if just eating as car park cannot handle a full restaurant and village parking can be tricky.

The overall package appealed to us so we gave it a try. On arrival we were met by the owner David. We sat down with him, and with a glass of champagne we discussed the...

The food stole the show though as it was absolutely fantastic. We were particularly impressed with the dessert board. Thank you for a wonderful...

A really enjoyable stay at the Wensleydale Heifer. We stayed in the Chocolate room, which was lovely. Really liked the extra touches of the chocolate drizzled strawberries, cake and cafetiere along with a thermos of milk that were waiting for us. The room was very comfortable and the food absolutely delicious. The staff were all very helpful and attentive. Would...
