The basics first. Very friendly and unfussy welcome. Good sized room - we paid for the slightly larger one which had a lovely sunset view - sunset not guaranteed but we were lucky. Be warned - low beams - non-hobbity folk beware. Breakfast cooked fresh and fast - a couple of offbeat options made a welcome change from the ubiquitous "full English": Smoked salmon and scrambled egg is on the list to emulate at home. Horses and ponies in stables and paddocks : riding lessons going on: not the sort of thing you get in the bog standard B&B. There is also a very pleasant nature walk through adjoining woods with info panels and an exercise cluster which we happened upon by accident. Dinner is either a walk to nearby pub or a drive into Wakefield: lunch out and a snack in the room OK by us. A small shared fridge is provided - nobody pinched the wine. Payment by cash or cheque a slight problem but not a deal breaker. Very convenient for Yorkshire Sculpture Park. We'd be happy to stay again when our wheels take us that way.
