  bunny rabbitt and little dog paradise

Typically warm yorkshire welcome, with a small staff of hard working , very pleasant people led by the owner-nothing is too much trouble, food is excellent and good value ( in fact the whole hotel is exceptional value).
Originally a vicarage (the hotel is named after the reverend stow who built the place), the hotel is decorated in a victorian style with many antiques, you feel more like you are staying in the vicarage of a hundred years ago ( except with all mod cons), rather than a hotel in the 21st century. The owner has strived to maintain the character of the original vicarage and has succeded wonderfully!
There is a small bar lounge or settle yourself in the reading lounge to study one of the many books available- thats if you can take your eyes from the breathtaking view of the dales that is the view through the french windows,
The bedrooms are large and airy with tea/ coffee facilities and t.v, decorated in character with the rest of the house.

Unique Qualities: This is a superior place to stay when in the Aysgarth area, you couldn't be much closer to the fanous Aysgarth Falls (a 5 minute stroll through a lovely atmospheric churchyard).
The hotel only has 9 guest room, so the atmosphere is that of aweekend retreat more than an impersonal hotel.
The grounds are beautifully maintained( with croquet & tennis lawns), despite the best efforts of the local bunny rabbit population that can be seen grazing on the lawns early morning!
Lovely gardens for a little dog and his mum to sit in and have tea& cakes in!
