Weekend B&B stay for a family reunion, very friendly staff, clean and comfy room with excellent food. Really taken in by the lovely setting by the river. Would definitely stay again if we were to venture up to North Yorkshire area again.

We were only here for a few days but its very pretty close to town, and the start of the moors walk. Very dog friendly hotel and staff are very welcoming and helpful. A great base for exploring the area. The weather was not good when we were there but in summer I think it must be very beautiful.

Great service with helpful friendly staff on hand. Why not try an ice cream for after, if you have any room ;-) Many choices of flavours which...

Nice friendly pub. Lovely location on the river. Clean. Nice staff. Food nice. Not sure the locals liked having small children in the pub. Great fish and chips during the summer. Plenty of room nice open fire. Seemed popular with walkers.
