Shallowdale house was a comfortable place to stay . Anton and Philip are very welcoming and very helpful . My room was clean , very spacious and comfortable with beautiful views over the valley whatever the weather . Breakfast easily set me up for the day . There is parking at the property and two guest lounge area's pleasant to sit in and read book or just relax. The location is just 5 miles from Helmsley and very easy access to lots of walks in the North Yorkshire National Park. I had travelled alone and would be happy to stay here again.

On arriving at Shallowdale house we were met by Phillip with a very warm welcome. As soon as we climbed the stairs to the first landing the first thing I said was WOW ! The views are absolutely stunning. The bedrooms are really comfortable and spacious. The breakfasts were fabulous , fresh local produce cooked superbly by Phillip and served impeccably by Anton. We ate dinner one night while staying and this was just as good as any Michelin star restaurant , also we had the restaurant to our selves.
Anton and Phillip are warm and friendly and very attentive , however the respect your privacy but still make you feel like you are a member of their family staying in their beautiful home. Cannot wait to return and would highly recommend .
