Eastfield Lodge, Leyburn in Wensleydale
A warm welcome awaits you at Eastfield Lodge, our comfortable guest house in one of the prettiest market towns in the Yorkshire Dales. Leyburn is a gateway to the Dales National Park and the principal town of Wensleydale. We are 300 yards from the picturesque and vibrant market square with its interesting shops, the market itself and its traditional tearooms and pubs.
From much of the town, including Eastfield Lodge, you can look westwards over a patchwork of fields and stone-clad hamlets, to Pennhill, the highest peak in the eastern Dales, which dominates many a glorious panorama in these parts. This is James Herriot country and it is a gem.
Our Beautiful Bedrooms & Other Rooms
We have eight en suite bedrooms and each is a pleasure to come back to after a day out. Immaculately clean, they are furnished individually with great taste. They have attractive en suites (all recently refurbished), tea/coffee making facilities, free wifi, flat-screen TV’s (with DVD players) and other hospitality touches that make your stay special.
We have bright and sunny breakfast room, where we serve a good, locally-sourced breakfast, whether you opt for the healthy or hearty version – or a little bit of both! There is also a comfy living room with a woodburning stove, which roars away during the winter months. We love seeing guests relaxing in this room, perhaps chatting over a drink with other guests about where they have been and what they have seen. In the living room you can help yourself to tea and coffee throughout your stay, and when time allows us to do some baking, we leave out home-made cakes or biscuits to accompany that much-needed cup of tea on your return to the house in the mid/late afternoon. There is also a guest fridge, where you can chill a bottle of wine or beer.
The house has ample parking, a drying room, a small front garden and an adjoining Coach House. This is where we live, so we are close at hand if ever you need anything. We are Victor and Thurza Campbell and we want your stay at our special B&B in the Yorkshire Dales to be as pleasurable and as relaxing as possible.
More about Eastfield Lodge
Eastfield Lodge was acquired in 2006 by Collett’s Mountain Holidays, a small walking holiday specialist with destinations in the Italian Dolomites, Pyrenees and Picos de Europa. Collett’s wanted a guest house in the UK that in some ways mirrored their mountain holidays: (1) wonderful walks amidst beautiful ‘hilly’ landscapes to suit people of all levels of fitness (2) stunning drives to places of cultural, historical and natural interest and (3) delightful accommodation, where the hospitality is warm, welcoming and unassuming.
Eastfield Lodge has been awarded four stars by Visit England for its comfort, facilities, food, cleanliness and the access it offers to information on walks, places of interest and eating out. There is so much to see and do in this magical part of England. The walking is sublime. There is an abundance of places of interest in an area famous for the TV series ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ – the Dales National Park Visitor Centre, the Wensleydale Railway, the Forbidden Corner, Aysgarth Falls, Hardraw Force, Jervaulx Abbey, Bolton Abbey, Constable Burton Hall & Gardens, Thorp Perrow Arboretum, the Black Sheep Brewery… to name but a few.
You can also visit villages and towns which, like Leyburn, are amongst the most characterful in the entire country: Middleham (with its castle and racehorses), Richmond, Hawes, Kettlewell, Reeth and many others, famous for nothing but lovely to pass through on foot or by car. Further afield there is Ripon, Durham, York and Harrogate, all of which make a memorable day trip.
Once here, do exactly as you please. We understand if you prefer to be completely left to your own devices. We can provide you with what you need to gather many interesting ideas and create a succession of enjoyable days out whatever your interests.
