Traditional charm with a twist.

Posted Apr 28, 2014
Pros: Old fashioned charm and luxury, very friendly and attentive staff, excellent breakfasts. Room felt very 'individual' - like staying in a private house
Cons: Evening menu was a little on the 'nouvelle' side for my own taste (but fine by my wife), and food quality seemed very good.
Location: Lovely unspoilt village location with very good inn. Lots of walks in the immediate area without needing to drive.
Feeling of being a member of extended family at a small country house gathering. Immediately felt welcome. Hotel felt indulgent in an 'old school' way - log fire always burning in one of the lounge rooms, attentive service from staff on reception and at the bar. Though without some of the facilities (pool, spa, etc.) which are now the norm at a lot of hotels in this price bracket, we did not miss them at all. Room and bathroom were excellent, with touches of luxury.

Great accommodation and excellent food.

Posted Mar 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
We had a lovely stay, the accommodation was exquisite and excellent food. Lovely fresh produce. Dogs! We were awoken with the pounding at 6 AM one morning and as we had come away for a quiet break having left our farm for the weekend it was a surprise. Apart from this we would like to return again and would highly recommend. Thank you.

The staff are really friendly but take the same care experienced in high end hotels - attentive service, bag taken to room, remembering guest preferences etc.

Excellent small country hotel

To paraphrase Arnold Schwarzenegger, "We'll be back"! We had a lovely stay and very much enjoyed the attention to detail and the quality of the food.

Excellent escape

Beautiful setting, bags of character, room comfortable and well appointed, and the bar & restaurant both worth a visit on their own merits, even better with an overnight stay and a walk around the hills the next day. Homemade biscuits in the room an absolute cherry on top.

Great hotel for a discerning traveller.

Posted Jul 17, 2012
Pros: The food , the pictures and the antiques
Cons: Mattress too soft
Location: Delightful Yorkshire village, just off the beaten track
A most attractively furnished hotel with excellent staff and attention to detail. The bedroom was cosy with everything you could want. Only criticism would be that the double bed was a bit too springy and too soft for us so we did not sleep particularly well ! Otherwise a great find and we would return. Dinner was exemplary.

Absolutely Fabulous

Posted Jul 10, 2012
Pros: The Room The Bed The Peace The Furnishings The Breakfast The Bar The Staff
Location: Stunning scenery, dry-stone walls, Yorkshire Dales beauty
After a Friday afternoon drive which took us 8 hours to reach The Traddock, we required something exceptional to calm our frayed nerves. We were anxious we had arrived too late for dinner, but the receptionist, Lucy, offered us the daily special and a drink in the bar almost without us asking. The room (number 6) was beautifully decorated, the bathroom was luxurious with big white fluffy towels and posh soaps and creams. The bar was very comfortable and the drawing room sofas were huge and comfortable. The whole atmosphere of the place is calm and relaxing. Breakfast on Saturday was exceptional, everything fresh and locally-sourced. Attending a wedding nearby, Lucy gave us information on how to get there and booked a taxi which turned up promptly. The location is beautiful, surrounded by rolling dales and hills with a beck close by. Leaving on Sunday morning found us in a much more relaxed state than when we had arrived, in no small part due to the wonderful service and attention of the The Traddock and the staff.

Good place to stay .

Posted Jul 6, 2012
Pros: Second room and food .Good breakfast Nice sitting rooms ,lot of books .Was like an old English home
Cons: it was cold in June ,but fires were not on as "it was Summer"
Location: Nice old Village
We stay twice over two weeks in this hotel .Although we book a superior room I think first time we did not get one . We had very small room ,hardly able to open our large cases on arrival from Africa .(room 4 ) Second stay we were told we were upgraded at no extra cost . Manager had been living in Malawi years ago .Perhaps that had something todo with the upgrading!! Delightful room ,plenty room etc etc Food very good and staff friendly . In all a very nice place althoughI am not sure we were not "cheated " on the kind of room on our first stay !

Gorgeous hotel, really relaxing.

Posted Jan 19, 2012
Pros: The bed!
Location: really lovely village with a great pub and lots of walks
We had a lovely overnight stay at the Traddock, very warm welcome from Paul and Erica who couldn't have been more helpful and also Andreas and Hope in the evening. Stayed in Room 3 which was really nice - possibly the comfiest bed we have ever slept in! Great food for both lunch and dinner. Overall we were very impressed with everything - location, accomodation, service was excellent and we would definately recommend to friends and also stay again ourselves.
