As always we have had a fantastic stay, with Bruno and the team going out of their way to make it a lovely birthday weekend.

From the beautiful food /friendly staff to the snow ..... All was perfect and we returned home relaxed and happy having already booked to stay again.

Short Stay In December For A Special Occasion.
We had a most enjoyable short stay at the CB. It is one of our favourite places in the Yorkshire Dales. The hotel was warm and cosy and welcoming after a very wet day out walking. Food is superb, and the CB is very good value.

Lovely Relaxing Stay In The Dales
We stayed for three nights in late November with our dog. Everything was perfect - staff friendly and helpful, room warm and cosy and food delicious. The open fire in the bar area was a welcome sight after a long walk in the cold. We will definitely visit again. Thank you.

Girls Away Day
Myself and four friends stayed midweek and had an excellent experience. We had been walking during the day and arrived at CB exhausted and ready for a cozy room and good food which is exactly what we got. The rooms were lovely with fantastic views and the food was excellent made up of good local ingredients. We will definitely return for more girly getaways.

November Chill Out
We have been coming to the CB for years and the quality never fails to amaze us. In the restaurant the selection of food, cheerful staff and roaring log fire all contribute to a memorable meal out. The rooms are lovely, spacious, spotless and homemade biscuits sit beside the kettle. The rooms at the back have superb views. One of those places that you really want to keep a secret.

Keep Coming Back
This is our favourite place for a short break. We live in York, so it’s not too far. We know that we can completely switch off and recharge and it has never let us down. The staff are always lovely, genuinely friendly people and the rooms comfortable- we always sleep well at the CB. The food, from the mirror menu above the log fire, is fantastic, using a lot of local produce. We walk, eat and drink, usually playing scrabble in the bar to finish off our wind down. Breakfasts are equally good- fantastic bacon!

Every time we leave, we know we will be back....

Thank you CB.

Our first visit to the CB Inn & thoroughly enjoyed it. Emma was on hand to check us in & out - she gave us all the details regarding ordering meals & times etc.

Room was very clean,ensuite fully equipped with toiletries & everything else you need for a comfy stay.

The small bottles of REAL milk (no UHT here!) for tea & coffee are a nice touch.

Food was absolutely delicious - faultless!

Lovely Room
The room was very nice , quiet and the bed was comfortable. Nice toiletries in the bathroom and the little bottles of milk for tea and coffee In the fridge on the landing were a good idea. The food was overpriced for what we got, the burger I had on the first night was chewy and had gristle in it. The plough mans on the second night wasn\'t good value for money. The 3 types of cheese were all very strong, the salad had a strange dressing on it and the bread was stale. The service at breakfast both mornings wasn\'t too good, we were sat down for a good 10 minutes and in the end had to ask to order our food. As a group we enjoyed our stay at the CB inn but the food and the service needs improvement and the drinks were very expensive . Free papers were advertised on the website but when I asked for a paper on the Sunday I was given Saturday\'s paper out of the bin

Booked at very short notice- we were both feeling frazzled and needed a break. The hotel is in such a lovely spot surrounded by beautiful countryside and the wildflowers were spectacular. The thing that sets the CB inn apart though is the staff. Everyone is friendly and chatty and all very knowledgeable. Tried a few different gins on the recommendation of the barman which probably added to our enjoyment. We will be back again - thanks for all your hard work

Perfect Stay
Booked one nights stay at the CB Inn at the very last minute as another hotel had let us down. Couldn\'t have been happier with our choice. From the first phone call to book to checking out the staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was huge and I would defy anyone to find a better view in the dales. Beer and food were both excellent and my husband declared his kipper to be the best he had ever tasted! Quite an accolade. We have just rented a house locally as we are moving to the area so the CB Inn will be our local.

Positively ecstatic!

A Lovely Celebratory Weekend
The hotel is in a superb location with wonderful views of Arkengarthdale. Only a short distance away, the village of Reeth is a well-known centre for walking in Swaledale, - though of course there is plenty of walking in Arkengarthdale itself.

We found the hotel to be very welcoming in all respects, - friendly, helpful staff, cosy public rooms (including a roaring log fire in the bar area) and comfortable bedrooms.

We had a bedroom which had a very large comfortable bed and all the amenities you could want. And when we opened the curtains in the morning, there were gorgeous views outside the windows.

All meals (breakfasts and dinners) were of excellent quality, served by attentive staff. As our stay was to help celebrate an important family occasion, we were delighted to be able to experience these meals, - eating excellent food, drinking good wine, in convivial surroundings.

All-in-all, it was a wonderful weekend and we fully intend to return before too long.

Barnard Castle - Co. Durham - Castle

Distance 9.04 miles (14.46 km)
Perched high atop a steep bank overlooking the River Tees, Barnard Castle remains an imposing sight. It was damaged in 1630 when Sir Henry Vane bought it to use its stone to rebuild his preferred residence, Raby Castle. The foundations date back to the 12th century. Once one of the largest castles in northern England, it was also the principal residence of the Baliol family and a major power base in the many conflicts between the English and Scottish crowns, the rebellious nobles and the church.
