Welcoming walkers refuge

Posted Nov 29, 2014
Cons: Worth taking a torch if returning at night so that you can read the code on the backdoor gate.
Having had a long day walking in rain and fallen over in mud, Zarina dried out my anorak overnight, and washed my walking trousers which was beyond the call of duty. Steven provided me with bus time table so that I could catch the last bus back down the dale from Buckden. Small things which mean a lot. Excellent breakfast.

A very friendly welcome

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: The friendly atmosphere and its location
Location: This B&B is right in the heart of Kettlewell and a very convenient location for exploring the southern Dales.
Zarina, David and their staff were very friendly (but not over the top) and certainly made me feel welcome and included in the 'life' of the place, which as a solo traveller was appreciated. My room was very clean, if a little compact because of the en-suite, but perfectly okay for what I needed. The breakfasts were good, with plenty of choice and as the B&B is part of the café, you've got somewhere for lunch too if you want it. A good location for getting straight out into the countryside, if you're into walking and cycling (Zarina's is very cyclist friendly, with a bike rack outside the front door); there are well known routes you can explore right from the doorstep.

Great Yorkshire welcome

Posted Aug 8, 2014 on Hotels.com
We stayed at the room at the top of the house. It was a good size and everything had been thought about down to the fluffy towels, bottles of wine in the mini bar, fresh milk in the fridge, yummy biscuits etc. I particularly liked the fact that the whole of the area that we were in was given over to guests and so you didn't feel like you were intruding in somebody's house. The combination lock on the gate meant that you could come and go when you liked. The cafe at the bottom of the house was great too so that if you could manage it after the huge cooked breakfast you could eat lunch or tea and cake there too. Close to lots of different walks and bike rides too meaning that you don't have to drive unless you want to. Overall I would rate it as one of the best, if not the best, B & B that we have stayed in.

Zarina and David could not be better hosts from scrummy herbal teas to drying very wet gear and a special paper boy too! The breakfast was ample with tasty local produce. It was nice to find a reasonably priced single room. It may be on the small side for some but had all I needed, shower, toilet, sink, TV, WIFI access and drink making facilities with nice biscuits! The only down sides were the squeaky bed and the10am booking out time but it made me get out and about earlier than usual ! Thank you for a great stay. i will definitely be back. The cafe is also a lovely place which encourages cyclists and walkers, wet or dry.

A nice stay during my "Dales Walk" in Kettlewell

Posted May 14, 2014
Pros: Everything !
Cons: Please keep it as it is !
Location: Kettlewell is a very typical nice and lovely "Dales-village". If you like walking or cycling this is almost paradise.
I am from Belgium and I was walking the fantastic " Dales Way" for one week. So, It was only for one night but I did have a very pleasant stay at Zarina's. It is a very cosy B&B in a very typical "Dales-house" where you do feel yourself immediately at home. This is first of all because of the very warmful and helpful owners. The full English breakfast was really marvellous.

Weekend break

Posted May 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
We stayed at Zarinas bed and breakfast for the weekend. Zarina and David made us so welcome from the moment we walked in. The bedroom was comfortable with an excellent view of this most charming village. Great walks around the area plus 3 fabulous pubs a very short walk away not only offering a good choice in local ales but also in 2 we had very enjoyable meals. Not forgetting it's worth getting back to Zarinas after a long walk for well deserved afternoon tea. Hope to be coming back soon

Picturesque location, very friendly folks!

Posted Oct 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
Zarina is a lovely hostess! I had an early bus to catch so she made me breakfast an hour earlier than usual, and it was all delicious. She's super friendly and attentive without being hovering in any way. I booked the single room and found it cozy and comfortable. Having my own toilet and shower was a plus, although if you like privacy I wouldn't book the single room for more than one person because everything's out in the open (no doors or walls inside the room). The mattress and pillows were soft and clearly high-quality, and I slept incredibly well. There's even satellite TV with loads of channels. Of course, it's in a beautiful location so you probably won't need TV anyway! The location is about the hotel's only "problem," if you could call it that. Hotels.com says it's in Skipton, but it's actually in the tiny village of Kettlewell, about a half-hour drive or one hour bus ride outside of Skipton. I was very lucky that Zarina was able to pick me up from the Skipton train station because there are no taxis and buses don't run after 6PM; they only run once every two hours to start with. So if you're looking for a hotel that's beautifully located in the hills of Yorkshire, you can't go wrong, but be aware that it's not close to any major transport hubs and getting there without a car could be very tricky, especially after business hours. Overall, though, I hope I can stay here again!
