Poor Quality Stay

3 adults stayed one night (dropping son at Catterick Barracks) Cash or cheques (can anyone remember these) only here.

Room was old , tired, & musty smelling but was clean , could be lovely as room was large enough for 3 full size single beds & bathroom was huge. Although on 3 rd floor with only narrow stairs for access . Location in Layburn market square at start of Wenesley Dale is fantastic & picturesque.

Breakfast although included was minimal & greasey - who serves only 1 mushroom as part of a cooked breakfast. Sorry can not recommend & will not stay again despite the keen price & even though we will be visiting the area again will stay somewhere else.

Th Black Swan - A Great Place to Stay

Nestled in the Yorkshire Dales is the town of Leyton and here you will find the Black Swan, a small country type pub on the edge of a typical market town square.

The Black Swan was a great place to stay for an overnight stopover but I wish I had had more time to make it a base to explore more of the dales. The room I stayed in above the pub was very clean and comfortable and the owner John made my partner and I very welcome. The pub served traditional pub food and being a free house had a wide range of beers on tap. John is a great character with a traditional dales outlook on life and nothing was better than sitting in the bar and talking with him and the locals for an evenings entertainment. As the sign says "no wifi, try talking to people."

I would highly recommend The Black Swan to anyone seeking an overnight stop or a longer break if you like traditional accommodation coupled with great food (and lots of it) and great conversation. We loved every minute of it.
