“Clean, quiet and comfortable”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

Well positioned in the picturesque village, The Castle Arms is an ideal base for visiting the many attractions that this part of North Yorkshire has to offer, with Ripon just ten miles to the south and Wensleydale five minutes drive to the north.
Our room was clean, well furnished and had lighting that was bright enought to read by! Although our two-night stay coincided with a particularly cold snap, the fully adjustable heating kept the room comfortably warm. There was no noise from the pub and, as you would expect in a rural village, a complete absence of traffic noise.
Breakfast, served in the dining room, was one of the best we have experienced. Crisp, clean tablecloths, nicely presented, lots of choice and fast, friendly service. The Full English would put many others to shame.
We didn't have the opportunity to sample the evening menu but it was imaginative and sensibly priced.
Would we stay here again? Yes we would! Another visit is already in the diary - to do justice to Ripon and to sample the Castle's mouth-watering evening menu!
By the way, they have an open fire in the bar and the beer is superb. Enough said!

We stayed here 2 nights on the 9th & 10th March 2012. We booked 2 rooms, one for our -selves & 1 Room for my Mum & her Partner.The bedrooms are tastefully furnished in groundfloor accommodation, set in a pretty pub courtyard. The rooms are lovely & quiet,and very clean & comfortable.
Sandra the owner makes everyone feel at home and ensures you have everything you need for a comfortable stay. Nothing is too much trouble however small. The breakfast menu offers a huge choice from cereals,fruit ,& yoghurts to a Full English Breakfast.They cater very well for Vegetarians with a Full English Veggie Option which is really Scrummy!! The pub offers a lovely menu for evening meals which is fab if you don't want to go out in the evening.I have to say,all in all,we had a very pleasant stay & we would definately recommend this accomodation to anyone wishing to stay in this area of Yorkshire.This is one of Yorkshire's best kept secrets!!

Room Tip: All the rooms were lovely we booked rooms 4&5. they were lovely & quiet.

We stayed overnight on 29th October 2011. On arrival in the pub there was a coal fire burning in the main room, it was lovely and warm,as was the atmosphere. On handpump was Jennings and Breakspeare. Both were excellent. We dined in the restuarant in the evening, the food and service were fantastic. Our room was in the outbuildings at the rear up some stairs. It was a loveley beamed room with pine furniture,nice and clean with good hot drink equipment in the room.Breakfast was fantastic,my wife ( a vegetarian) said it was the best veggie breakfast she has ever had! Mine was faultless, possibly the best I've ever had as well. We will definately stay here again if we visit the area.

Reviewed 26 September 2011

Stayed for 2 nights, from 23/09/2011, while we visted the Masham Sheep Fair and the Wensleydale Railway.
The stay could not be faulted. Food,beer,wine and hospitality were suburb, and the accommadation was great. Our dog sat with us near the fire and exchanged sniffs with the locals dogs as they brought their owners into the pub for a drink. So relaxing. There seems to be lots of good walking from the pub. A great base to visit the area.
