The hosts were lovely people, and they did everything possible to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Upon arrival, we had homemade flapjack waiting on us, placed next to the...

Great B&B set in beautiful surroundings. Alex's breakfasts were to die for, just what you need to start the day. Our Bedroom no 1 was comfortable and roomy, lovely little touches from Ann with the home made flapjacks and biscuits. Location is excellent, two pubs nearby and so close to the famous Malham Cove walk, which we did and enjoyed....

River House makes a distinct effort to go the extra mile. Whereas other perfectly decent B&B's will provide TVs in rooms, breakfast, tea & coffee facilities, en-suite, etc., what River House does is to provide top quality in all these areas. So you get fresh milk in a flask to use in your room, high quality branded teas, ground coffee...

Excellent service from friendly hosts. Homemade biscuits every day, best cooked breakfasts with wonderful homemade marmalade - we did stay in February! The skyr yogurts were a treat. Very welcoming snugs with woodworking fires to cosy up to after a day's walk straight out of the door -very convenient for all the Malham sights, climbs. The bed wasn't too good...
