On a recent trip to North Yorkshire we decided to try a meal at the Wenslydale Heiffer. The restaurant is really well appointed and you receive a very warm welcome. The staff are very attentive and the food is very good. The portions are quite big so make sure that you are hungry before you go. We shared a taster...

We stayed here last night for 1 night & stayed in the Chocolate Heaven room on the Sunday night package. We had a lovely stay overall but we were slightly disappointed with the size of the room when we first got there. It took us a long time to decide which room to book & after the initial disappointment &...

Outstanding service and food throughout. Quality in everything, superb attention to detail and that extra personal touch. I would highly recommend it for that extra special treat as it does come at a premium but worth every penny.

Excellent service and beautiful food. The shower in the James Herriot room could do with sorting out, I didn't mind as I had a bath but my boyfriend struggled with the shower attachment. A little noisy in the bedroom in the afternoon from people in the bar, but it was fine at night. Would love to return but would choose...

We greatly enjoyed our stay at The Wensleydale Heifer. We felt very comfortable and 'at home' the moment we stepped into the cosy lounge with its warming log burner, enjoying an attractively presented caffetiere of coffee with handmade chocolates whilst waiting for our room to be available (we arrived a little earlier than anticipated). All staff throughout our visit were...

We had a fantastic stay, the service was impeccable and staff were very friendly. The food, both evening meal and breakfast, was delicious. The room we stayed in was lovely (champagne), comfortable and spacious with a great bathroom. I have no doubt we will be staying again in the near future.

Booked to stay at this hotel for my husband's birthday. I chose the four poster room, I would have preferred one of the other rooms such as the chocolate room, james bond room or night at the movies but they were already booked. I thought this one would be good as it said it was regularly booked for honeymooners. The...
