just perfect

We wanted a get away to unwind and Richard & Trisha ensured that we did just that.

Previous reviews were more than accurate. Everything was perfect from the secluded lication to the little extra flourishes. We would go back without hesitation

Absolutely amazing hospitality in the gorgeous Yorkshire Dales

What a lovely weekend I have just spent at Littlebank, I was there with my partner to celebrate a new job, and it was perfect for that.

The highlights for me were sherry and handmade fairy cakes in the room every evening and the fantastic hospitality of Richard and Trish. And of course the lovely location in beautiful Settle. Nothing was too much trouble at all. As a carless couple they very kindly picked us up and dropped us off at the station, as well as taking us to the local pub for dinner. This is the only place I have ever stayed that was so generous in this way and it made our stay immeasurably better. Richard even took us on a mini tour of his Settle brewery which was a real treat. Very highly recommended.

Nice rural place but hard to get to

Very nice stay, but the address information does not take you to the accommodation.

The owners should write next to the postcode (No, not just on the website) that the postcode takes you 40 minutes away from your intended destination. The owners seem content with leaving it at that which doesn't make much sense, in their own words 90 out of 100 people get lost on the way to their hotel. We couldn't sleep too well as the fire alarms kept going off (thrice between 6 and 8am)...aargh. That said, the hosts are outstanding. The owers are very nice and warm hearted people. They offered 5* rescue service after we were lost and got us to the hotel quite late in the evening. The hotel is located in a region of outstanding natural beauty, definitely great for relaxing around but if you are looking for a quick getaway from the city, mind you it is a treasure and you'll have to work hard to locate it.

Lovely country B&B

Other comments spot on.

Lovely house up a rough farm track, not that rough that a normal car cant manage it though. Very friendly hosts. I would stay again. Beware sat nav though, it may take you up a single track road to a padlocked gate onto a tractor track.... you are in the wrong place. Read the directions on the website and you will be ok.

Beautiful little place - perfect for cosy couples weekend retreat

Littlebank House was wonderful.

The rooms are quirky and cute and the scenery around the area is fantastic. If you are considering staying here for a special occasion - make sure you take the higher rated rooms. We unfortunately didn't and I wont lie we regretted it slightly. But even so we had a wonderful 3 night stay - breakfast was great and our hosts couldn't do more to look after us.

Great hosts

This place is a hidden gem.

The owners are so sweet and accommodating and flexible. They went all out to make my stay as lovely as possible.

I was left a little bday gift in my room along with other great complimentaries (such as sherry, biscuits, butterfly cakes, chocolates etc etc).

Beautiful crockery available to use in the bedroom.

Big bathroom.

A little unclean under the bed and windowsills, and bathtub had some marks in it (permanent), but none of these would deter me from wanting to stay here again.

Great value for money and well worth staying here if, like my husband and I, you had gone to Yorshire to walk the three peaks.

V pleasant stay. Highly recommend it.

Good B&B

Very nice accommodation and very pleasant owners.

Great care taken to deliver a pleasant stay. The location is quiet and rural, however, the drive from the road to the house is lengthy, very uneven with potholes and large stones. Would use again - once the access has been improved.

Comfortable accommodation & great breakfasts.

Helpful hosts. Just a short drive into the National Park, then lovely walking in the southern Yorkshire Dales.
