It delivered everything we value, so we returned in July; one week in the Dales had not been enough for us! Key attractions are the layout and location. The kitchen and dining area is a sociable space, fitted out to a high standard, and more than adequate for a family to comfortably eat and spend time together. The Old Wool Shop was again immaculately clean on arrival, and the owners are consistently efficient when responding to booking requests. "Icing on the cake": Good food & beer at reasonable prices along with friendly and efficient service from the staff at the Bolton Arms, a few strides around the corner. Saffron Indian Restaurant in Leyburn, where the Bangladeshi Menu and Chef's Specials were superb and great value, is also worth sampling. Finally, if you need to hire bikes, The Dales Bike Centre at Fremington (5 miles over the hill, heading towards Reeth) was very accommodating and staff had deep local knowledge of the off road trails. Hire of Trek ATBs with OS based suggested routes also provided, kept our teenage sons fully occupied for two days. We booked another week before heading back home. Enough said!

Visited Bowles museum, Eastby Abbey, Fountsins Abbey and Studley Royal and hubby did lots of long walks on the moors whilst I relaxed in the garden ( often with the very welcome company of Ben). Truly sad to leave at the end of our week and, although it is a very long way from Devon, we would love to go back again.
