My girlfriend and I stayed at High Dalby House last night and I'm lost for words...although I'll do my very best.... The first thing I must mention is how welcoming and charming the couple that run it are, full of advise and stories and all round hospitableness. Second is the incredible garden with arguably the best views of Dalby Forest...

Whenever I come across an establishment that sells itself as "5 star" my immediate reaction is "I'll be the judge of that,thank you very much!" My wife says I'm a cantankerous old Yorkshire man who will find fault with anything and everything! However,having just spent 3 nights in the Pheasant cottage which belongs to High Dalby house,I have to say...

Thank you very much for this outstanding review which is so good that I couldn't have written a better one for myself!! I am now sorry that you never had a chance to see our b&b accommodation which, even though I say it myself, is even better than in our cottages. On a serious note we are just delighted that...

We booked fairly last minute for our wedding night. We needed somewhere close by to have a quiet night away from all the hussle and bussle of the day. As soon as we arrived we knew we had picked the perfect place. Warm, friendly and genuinely welcoming service made us feel at home straight away. The rooms are stunning, the...

Thank you very much for your wonderful review. You are right our photographs do not do justice to what our guests actually find - High Dalby House is truly unique in many ways.

Super quiet and luxurious. A beautiful location set in well tended gardens for pots of nature. We really enjoyed the night there and will go back for sure. The owners are very attentive and made the stay very easy.

The first thing to say is that High Dalby House is well "off the beaten track", being located along Dalby Forest Drive which can effectively only be entered near the Thornton Dale end (via Whitby Gate in Thornton Dale) - the other end being towards Scarborough and accessed via an under-signed "maze" of narrow lanes. This means passing by the...

Thanks for your review. You are the first reviewer who feels that we do not offer good value and also the first person in 19 years not to enjoy our kippers. I am afraid time (and demand) forbids me from driving the 44 mile round trip to get our kippers from Whitby. I note that you still enjoyed your experience...
