You’ll feel instantly at home here with either Andy or Louise at the helm aided by a happy team of staff. Huge sliding glass doors allow guests to spill out from the restaurant into the pretty streamside garden. Malham is a mecca for walkers with the famous cove just under a mile away and Janet’s Foss, Gordale scar and the Tarn not much further.
This is some of the most stunning and remote countryside in the UK and it’s great for cycling as well as striding. Wild swimmers will be happy too with rivers, lakes and waterfalls to hurl themselves into. And dogs will love it all as much as their owners.
Gird your loins for breakfasts of thick cut back bacon from the local farm shop, bangers from happy pigs and free-range eggs from the Dales. The restaurant, which is also open to the public, specialises in good, seasonal and local food cooked simply. Sleep well in comfortable bedrooms, all very different, all beautifully dressed, and dog-friendly too – beds, mats and bowls can be provided for your hound.
