Litton BD23 5QJ 01756 770 096
A new lease of life for a back-country inn has put the heart back into the tiny hamlet of Littondale. The route here's a beauty, down a single-track road through countryside that gets prettier and prettier until Litton itself trumps the lot, with its ancient roadside inn and grassy side-garden with rolling Dales' hills behind. While the food's worth the journey itself, it's the guest rooms upstairs that convince you to stay – welcome cosy countryness shoehorned into four oddly named, oddly shaped rooms that reflect the age and character of the inn. Earthy greens, browns and oatmeal predominate, the furniture's antique pine, and the bathrooms – squeezed in where they can – nice and modern. A cushioned window seat here, a padded bed-head there, and everything is nice and dandy, especially for the prices, which are remarkably good value. Skirfare has the biggest bathroom, while Potts has some humorously low bang-your-head oak beams and a side-passage into a tucked-away second room that's perfect for the kids. Two other rooms share a shower room and make up a self-contained suite. There are very few distractions, save a great pub and some fine food downstairs, and arguably the Dales' finest scenery on the doorstep.
