The Stone House Hotel Location map

We stayed at this hotel for the duration of our visit to the Yorkshire Dales in August 1998.

The hotel is situated on the sunny side of Wensleydale opposite the small market town of Hawes. The road on this side of the dale is a very minor road and, consequently, is very quiet with very little traffic. The hotel is located part the way up the side of the dale with nice views along the dale. There is a public footpath a short way from the hotel which goes across the fields towards Hawes and there are other public footpaths in the area . There is a good size car park situated to the side of the hotel

We had two different rooms during our stay. When we first booked we liked the sound of the Conservatory rooms, each of which had their own conservatory looking out into the grounds, and wanted to book one of those but, because of other prior bookings, were unable to book one for the whole of our stay.

So it was that we started off with a room in the annexe. This was situated a mere 15 yards from the hotel's main door. Our upstairs room was a delightful room, large, nicely furnished and with a view across Wensleydale towards Hawes. The bathroom was also large and light with a window facing towards the car park.

Later on in our stay we were able to move across to one of the Conservatory rooms although it turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. The room was rather cramped compared with our previous room and it felt, in the conservatory, a bit like being in a goldfish bowl. The problem, from our point of view, was that there was no screening between adjacent conservatories and with the clear glass walls it felt rather as if we would be sharing the conservatory with other guests.

The dining room was a pleasant room and the service was prompt. The food was excellent, being mostly traditional, and we enjoyed our meals here very much. The only disappointment was the background music which we really don't like although, of course, you may not share that view.

There is also a rather nice cosy lounge where one can relax in comfortable chairs.

We can thoroughly recommend this hotel.     The Stone House Hotel's own web site
