A traditional Coaching Inn with a difference! The Wensleydale Heifer offers a top quality restaurant, and accommodation equally impressive with the emphasis on comfort and customer satisfaction. We like to let our guests do the talking "the best place to eat in Yorkshire, where service and food quality is second to none... the room was delightful and 1st class.." The Heifer has nine themed rooms, all beautifully appointed with full facilities.

We were made to feel very welcome from the first minute we walked into The Wensleydale Heifer. The whole team worked hard to ensure that our stay was as enjoyable as possible. Our room, Shooters, although a little smaller than anticipated was comfortable and spotless. The little

Thank you so much for your very kind review. I am delighted that you had a nice time and enjoyed all the little extras. I have taken note about the sound issues, we have done some work on the building in the past but we will revisit this in our next managers meeting. Thank you again and we all look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

We chose this hotel for a birthday treat and that's exactly what it was. Comfortable accomodation and superb food made it something to remember. The staff were friendly and efficient, and there is a good choice of drinks in a comfortable bar. And a bonus was that we could take

We really enjoyed our one night stay at the Heifer this last Thursday night and all of the staff were very welcoming and kind to us throughout. We stayed in the Shooters Room on a Steak & Lobster Midweek Deal. The ambience of the place is super and the food in the restaurant

Thank you so much for your very kind review of your recent stay with us. I am delighted that you had a great time and enjoyed our special steak and lobster package. I can confirm that the service charge does go to the staff, we have very good and passionate team behind the Heifer, many who have been here for many years and we felt from day one that we wanted to not only pay them all well but also give a great bonus on a monthly basis that is made up from the service charge and any extra tips we receive, this is shared between all departments. I have passed your kind words and we all look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Have stayed here on a few ovasikbs with the wife, and have loved every visit. Seafood is the best and absolutely adore the snug area with the fire. Have always stayed in the rooms in the cottage and they are fab. Love it

Hi, Forbidden Corner is a lovely attraction to visit, it is about a 10 minute drive from Wensleydale Heifer but you may need to book tickets in advance.

There is a variety from Wenslydale Heifer own label (£20 odd I think) through the range to vintage Krug (£100+).

Hi, sorry I only just saw your question! We stayed in the Champagne Room so I don’t know the James Bond Room but ours was lovely. I just think that the different styling themes help to distinguish between rooms and to make them individual.

"not the heifer room unless they sort the bed out ?????"
"All rooms are themed and good. Very friendly staff. It’s a restaurant with rooms."
"We stayed in the Four poster room .it's at the front of the property so maybe a bit noisy in summer if you like to have windows open ."
"Variety of "themed" rooms at various prices. Check pictures on website"
"Treat yourself to one of the themed room ... 007 highly recommended."
