The Charles Bathurst is perched high up on the daleside just inside the national park and commands majestic views down the valley below. The pub itself a rabbit warren of various rooms and stairways, filled with an eclectic mix of furniture as well as some rather obnoxious hunting and fishing devotees who misplaced their filter and volume control on the...

If you are an out and about person whether it be tramping the beautiful hills and valleys or touring the castles, houses and waterfalls of the Dales, this is the place to stay. Casual, friendly and efficient with a wide ranging in house prepared menu it is just right after languishing in a hot comfortable bath in the delightful rooms....

Went for a two night stay in late January. a welcome revisit to the CB in after a 2 year break. As usual the accommodation is comfortable, the food is outstanding, and the welcome is warm. There are some fabulous walks nearby and its in a lovely location. Look forward to visiting again soon.

I have stayed at the CB around a dozen times - on my own, and with various family members and friends.

The bar, where I always choose to eat, feels like a "local", but the...

We stopped off overnight on our way to Northumberland I can more than recommend eating here. We shared a delicious pickled and smoked fish starter followed by a perfectly cooked piece of cod for me and a confit pheasant dish for my partner. The atmosphere is warm and cosy and the staff pleasant and very helpful. We will most certainly...

Had to cancel on the day we were due to arrive due to the sudden and unexpected passing of my Father in law that day. Telephoned them, they were very unsympathetic and cold hearted, they then charged me £195 on top of my £75 deposit. They appeared to have rebooked our room for at least one of the nights. I...

It's several years since we last stayed at the CB Inn so we're pleased to take advantage of a good offer. Glad to say that the rooms and the food are just as good as ever. Our room (11) was large and well equipped with cracking views from the 2 aspects. Dinner was fine as was the reasonably priced wine,...
