We really love it here and recently returned this time to try the Champagne room. Our first stay last year was in the Chocolate room which we loved.

The Wensleydale Heifer ale was delicious. A must try. A bit disappointed that a bottle of coke was nearly the same price as a pint of ale. Funky decor including the toilet where I sat and had a giggle.

We stayed at the heifer last night in the Chocolate Heaven room which is in the annexe. We eagerly anticipated our stay based on the reviews on TA and we're not disappointed. The room was full of chocolate treats and goodies and was tastefully decorated with high quality furnishings. The bathroom was huge and luxurious. We spent the afternoon relaxing...

We loved our stay at the Wensleydale Heifer and it lived up to everything we had heard from friends. The staff were so attentive and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was just superb & we loved our room (the Heifer room). The atmosphere was lovely too. We look forward to our next stay. Thank you.
