You simply could not wish for a more welcoming couple Glenda and Daniele go out of their way to make your stay wonderful. There were little Italian treats to make it special, cake and coffee/tea on arrival. Forget the rest, book Homelands

Just returned from a trip to the Yorkshire Dales. On the way home we stayed at the Homelands Guest House. What a lovely place. We received a really warm welcome which included tea and home made shortbread. The place is very clean, the rooms well furnished and spotless and the breakfast was terrific. We would have no difficulty coming here...

We were fortunate to have our family book my husband and myself into Homelands for two nights. Wonderful hosts welcomed us, everything was so beautiful. We had a room at the rear, it was very quiet and in the morning we awoke to lovely views of the garden. Breakfasts were splendid with so much choice. We loved the home baked...

Despite new owners they made me welcome as soon as I walked in the door. After a long trip from Devon a hot cup of tea was perfect.

As soon as we arrived Brian ushered us into the sitting room and offered tea, coffee or sherry - which after our long journey was a lovely welcome. This is definitely one of, if not the, best Guest House/B & B we have stayed in. Everything was just right, the huge comfy bed, the bright modern ensuite, the lovely big...
