We stayed two nights at Derek's place - The attic is very nice and big with a super comfy bed. Great place to stay as a base for visiting North Yorkshire, the Dales, and the Lake District. Highly recommended - thank you Derek for being such a wonderful host.
When we were at Derek's home it was our first experience with airbnb and it was fantastic.
The attic apartment where we slept is in a cozy home. When we up the stairs, we opened the door and we saw the "room"... we said: "Ooh!! It's lovely!! It's beautiful!!".
And we can't forget Derek (& family). He was attentive, he gave us a wise tip to shorten the route (thanks!) and with his culinary recommendation we are fans to Indian food now (thanks!).
It's a pity that we were only a night!!
We loved the time we spent in Derek and Tracey 's beautiful home. The attic suite is even bigger than in the pictures with lots of thoughtful details to make it a relaxing and comfortable environment.The bed was wonderful and we slept well after our days out exploring the countryside nearby. Derek has an in depth knowledge of the area and was very helpful suggesting walks and making recommendations about where to eat. We enjoyed our meal at the local Indian restaurant so much we went back on our last night! This is an excellent place to stay if you are looking for a base to explore the Eden Valley or further afield. Highly recommended and great value. Thank you for your warm hospitality and letting us share your lovely home - we hope to return in future.
We had a lovely time in this little country nest. The last floor of the house is just for the guests. Full of light, clear, clean and perfect.
The bed is large and comfy. Derek and his wife are really nice. With their advice, we went to have diner in the village center ( 5min walk). The indian restaurant was a great spot just as Derek told us.
Morning breakfast was delicious ans fresh. We would highly recommand this place for a relaxing time in the country. The landscape around is just calling you for a walk !
Derek and his wife are very helpful and thoughtful. Superservice and great atmosphere :) Very tall persons (around 2 meters) will have to mind their heads but the attic apartment is very nice, cozy, clean en fluffy (featherbed which brings sleep easily) It's a very private apartment with a great view of the surrounding country side which is stunning. From here you are in 5 minutes walking distance of the lovely town centre and several hikes. Don't forget the parrots that are flying around town! We stayed 3 nights and they where perfect. Thanks to the parrots and Derek's B&B!
If you're interested in exploring the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District, look no further. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Tracy and Derek, who are delightful hosts. They went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and provided us with great info on local walks, restaurants, etc. The apartment is absolutely brilliant -- spacious, cosy and clean, and well furnished and decorated. We heartily recommend the Whettons' apartment, and would be delighted to visit again sometime soon.
We enjoyed our 2 night stay. The bed was very comfortable and made up with soft linen. It was useful to have the extra space the living area gave us and the bathroom had all you would need.
We had a good continental breakfasts, including croissant and locally made jam.
Derek was good company and helpful. We were there to attend a wedding so we had our time filled for us, I am sure Derek would have given us good directions on local things of interest. He was also on hand to help us carry our packs up the stairs into the third floor.
If you want an all round wonderful Yorkshire Dales experience
head for the Whetton's lovely home in the charming village of Kirkby Stephen. Mid way along the famously scenic Settle-Carlisle railway, walkers need look no further for a terrific holiday! Derek and Tracy are delightful hosts and their attic apartment is comfy, cozy and very thoughtfully and graciously furnished. i saw lots and learned lots thanks to their eager sharing of this unique area of the world. I truly enjoyed my stay as the Whettons' went above and beyond to make sure I felt at home. I so look forward to returning and enjoying their company
once again! I won't soon forget being lulled to sleep with little lambs bleating and melodic birdsong while a gentle rain drizzled on the skylight above....
We really enjoyed our stay here. The attic room was spotless with a bed so comfortable it was hard to get out of. We liked that it was self contained with it's own shower and toilet. There was also a living room area with tea/coffee making facilities, a sofa and a fridge stocked with biscuits, tea, coffee, milk, beer, juice and water. The bathroom was supplied with shower wash, face wipes and fluffy white towels - great attention to detail.
Derek and Tracy were really friendly and booked us into a couple of good restaurants in town and gave us lots of useful walking tips and info on the local area. They also provided a daily breakfast with a fresh fruit salad.
We would recommend a stay here to all our friends and would definitely come again.
