We were recommended by Which Books, "The Good Bed & Breakfast Guide" for the last four years, that it was running, this was how the guide described Whitefriars.....
"Whitefriars, set in substantial gardens with a courtyard, is in the centre of this ancient market town that is at one end of the scenic Settle to Carlisle railway. The building could almost be straight out of the pages of a Jane Austen novel, with its elegant bow windows at ground- and first-floor level.
It dates from the seventeenth century, and as the name suggests, the buildings origins are monastic. Inside, the house boasts beams, a log fire, marble fireplaces and a grandfather clock, and the owners have combined traditional furnishings with a mixture of antiques and more modern pieces.All the bedrooms are of a good size and comfortable; five of the nine rooms have en suite showers.The dining room is where an 'excellent' breakfast is served"
We have two spacious lounges, with original beams and marble fireplaces, one with open log fire and colour television.
We pride ourselves on the standard of our breakfasts. Full English breakfast or various alternatives including vegetarian are provided.
May we welcome you to Whitefriars. Being a family run house, children are welcome, but we are sorry that there are no facilities for pets.
