Good location for exploring Wensleydale with Aysgarth Falls a short footpath walk away. Slightly quirky comfortable room in old village pub. Friendly bar with a mix of locals and visitors, good pub food and breakfast at reasonable prices. Interesting history with details of vet author James Herriot's stay on his honeymoon in 1941.

Could not fault the place, staff very friendly, nice clean room, good dinner and breakfast. Very homely. Log burner in lounge, very relaxing, and open fire in bar.Only downside for us it was too isolated, but for a peaceful break we would highly recommend.
