The house is centrally located in the village, just below
Skeldale House, the surgery of the vet, James Herriot, in
the well-known TV series "All Creatures Great and Small".
It is so named because it was originally built in 1756 by
the local apothecary,
Dr. James Lightfoot, though it was re-modelled around
1850 in a Georgian style.
As a bed and breakfast, we are particularly noted for the
quality and variety of our breakfasts
which use locally-sourced products wherever possible. (Though
we have to admit, the pineapples don't come from Yorkshire!)
All of our bedrooms
are en-suite and have colour TV, tea and coffee making facilities,
clock radios, shaver points, hair dryers and wireless broadband.
An iron, ironing board, or trouser press are also available
on request. Guests have the use of a large TV lounge on the
ground floor with log fires in the winter. We have ample private
parking and a lock-up garage for the use of cyclists.
