"Treat yourself to stately country home living"
Lovely grounds, delicious food, friendly hosts, welcoming rooms made for an exceptionally nice stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very welcoming hostelry, good food, great location and well presented roomsGenuine Expedia guest review
I stay in many different hotels due to my job and have often seen them say that 'nothing is too much trouble' but until now, that hadn't been the case. The owners were delightful and managed to hit that fine line of being attentive enough but not overbearing. The food really was great, all home cooked and very tasty. Definitely somewhere we will return […] to if we're in the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great surroundings, they have obviously put a lot of effort into this business. Expect what you'd expect in a 5* hotel excluding a separate shower in the bathroom.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hard to fault - very comfortable - bedroom doors are directly on to an outdoor path mews style and you have to walk across to the main house to eat - I arrived late and was still able to get something to eat, excellent wine, lovely ambience in the restaurant and lounge, comfortable if well used beds, spacious bedrooms, poorly signed when you arrive […] but easy parking.

"Excellent - As usual"
I really can't fault this hotel. I stay away a lot on business and have yet to come accross anywhere as good as this. The welcome is warm, the rooms are lovely and every possible requirement has been taken care of down to a full set of alternative toiletries in the bathroom. I'll be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Business and pleasure"
As a woman travelling alone I was made to feel extremely welcome and comfortable. The owners are truly hospitable and have a fine eye for details - all sorts of little extras to make sure your stay is a real pleasure. My dinner was delicious and the surroundings were delightful. I would highly recommend Clow Beck to any one staying in the area - why […] settle for staying in a chain hotel when when you can stay here and get so much more? My only regret was that I stayed in Autumn so didn't get the benefits of the lovely gardens after a long day at work. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
What a beautiful setting, idyllic. The rooms were lovely and the service excellent from the Armstrongs. This was a business trip but I shall most certainly return for leisure! Food was super and such a wide choice for both breakfast and evening meals. Fab!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Couldn't have been better!"
At first I thought the hotel was a bit pricey for a guest house however, I do believe that you get what you pay for and in this case it was no different! Heather and Paul were wonderful hosts! The room was clean, comfortable and had everything you could hope for for an overnight stay! The food was fantastic with everything being locally sourced and […] fresh! My only disappointment was that I forgot to ask Heather for her shortbread recipe - they were amazing!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I have previously used the Clow Beck when on business trips in the North East and always regarded it as my little secret. Somewhere to get away from it all and have a proper bit of down time in excellent surroundings and with the most amenable of hosts. This time I used it for leisure purposes as I wanted to treat a friend of mine to a night of comfort […] as he is walking John O'Groats to Lands End. Suffice to say we were treated to exceptional hospitality, generous portions of proper home cooked food and a room where all needs have been catered for. He hit the road completely refreshed. Clow Beck House has it right in so many areas that you cannot get in chain hotels, and I cannot recommend this place too highly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Fantastic stay, beautiful setting"
02/25/14 Christie M Brighton, United Kingdom
Stayed here recently with the whole family and had an absolutely fantastic time! Loved the setting and the way the rooms were laid out. All the rooms were a large size, and the beds were the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in. Heather and David were really lovely and accommodating - Nothing ever was too much to ask. The food was lovely too. Overall, we had a splendid weekend and I would recommend this to anyone.

Stayed here recently and found the owners David and Heather to be really helpful. The food that is served is excellent and you certainly get plenty. A poer shower in the morning is the ideal way to start the day. all of the bedrooms are a good size with large comfortable beds.

Beautiful surprise find. This quiet charming privately run country house hotel is the perfect place for a romantic break. All the rooms are individual and are separate from the main building. Beautifully appointed with everything you could wish for. Wonderful menu, freshly prepared food cooked by David and presented by Heather, who made us feel totally at home. We will most certainly return for our next special break.

What a gem of a find we arrived late afternoon to be warmly greeted by Heather and shown into a calm and relaxing sitting room where we enjoyed afternoon tea and homemade shortbread biscuits. After relaxing in a clean and cosy room (Fleur) we headed off to the restaurant with the most magnificent Christmas tree I have ever seen, the smell of pine and the wonderful surrounding set the scene for a sumptuous evening meal. The menu is beautifully varied and wonderfully cooked with generous portions I challenge anyone to find fault. Breakfast did not disappoint either I sincerely hope we can return to this shinning jewel as soon as possible. Many thanks to Heather and David merry Christmas to you and the family and have a good holiday when you go away

Thank you to Heather and David for making our Christmas treat a delightful experience. We can't fault them at all, and all the little touches made it so perfect. Everything was so personal and friendly, from the welcoming pot of tea to the attention to detail in catering for dietary requirements. We can't think of anywhere we have ever stayed that we have loved so much

fantastic five days at clow beck house. One of the best hotels we have stayed in. Hosts and staff were so welcoming. Everything was fantastic and we will be back soon. Fantastic shortbread in the rooms was just one of the many many little treats and luxuries that you get at clow beck. Heather and David the hosts cant do enough to make your stay great even down to the day we got up late and had missed breakfast , David phoned the room at ten to ask if we wanted some, as he would still cook for us, you do not get this at most places as when breakfast time has passed, its kitchen closed well not here. again fantastic place. Thankyou soo much Heather and David and hope to see you soon. yvonne roy
"Good ,in all but bed size"
09/24/13 sybil55 London, United Kingdom
Pretty room , great breakfast and very nice hosts BUT, why only a 4ft 6 " bed as a double? We stayed in the little bungalow on the site, instead of a king bed (or even a superking,as we have at home) we had a small double in our room. I would have thought a 5ft bed in an hotel or B& B is now standard , as it is in most homes.
"The praise is well deserved."

It has all been said: the warm welcome, the quality of the rooms and meals and the tranquility of the setting. I can only add that it is well worth a detour, whether you're on your way to Scotland or exploring the delights of North Yorkshire. I recently had business in Durham and found the Clow Beck the ideal place to relax and be cosseted at the end of a stressful day. A gin and tonic on the terrace with a spectacular view of the gardens was a superb prelude to the gourmet meal that followed. I'm looking forward to my next visit in the not too distant future.

Everything about this place is 5/5! Spotless clean rooms with plenty of toiletries and sundries (bath pillow too!), fresh ground coffee and daily baked shortbread biscuits to complement the tea/coffee tray, a selection of pillows to pick from (not a joke!). Attention to detail is outstanding, customer service as hardly ever experienced before, and I work in hospitality myself. The meals, from breakfast to tea, are made with locally and mainly organic locally sourced ingredients, and although they can be very rich, there's for everybody's taste. Heather and David, thank you for the gorgeous stay, see you soon!

I stay in many different hotels due to my job and have often seen them say that 'nothing is too much trouble' but until now, that hadn't been the case. Upon arrival we were welcomed with tea and homemade shortbread biscuits before being shown to our room. The owners were delightful and managed to hit that fine line of being attentive enough but not overbearing. The food really was great, all home cooked and very tasty. Definitely somewhere we will return to if we're in the area. My only very minor gripe is that the fridge in the dressing room emits quite a high pitched buzzing noise but as it was veyr hot at night we had the pedestal fan on which drowned out that noise.,
