I love this place. I've stayed at the Duke of Wellington three times now and none of the visits have been long enough.
The Duke is in a glorious location on the north Yorkshire moors - about 13 miles from Whitby. The rooms are bright, clean and comfortable with views overlooking Danby Dale. The food is excellent. The menu is not that extensive, but what is on it is delicious. After a hearty meal, there is nothing we like better than taking in an evening stroll around the Dale.
I can throughly recommend staying here. Room tariffs are also very reasonable with a top notch full English included in the price. Grant Douglas (the owner) and his staff always provide excellent customer service.
If you stay here, you will also have the added bonus of hanging out with some off the most comical sheep in all of Yorkshire!
The Duke Of Wellington can be found in the Yorkshire moors, it is the ideal place for walkers. It dates back to 1765 so has an atmosphere to it and not just a house turned B&B. It is named due to the plaque which sits pride of place over the open fireplace.
There are several bedrooms, all of which enjoy amazing views of the Danby Dales and its moorlands.
A fabulous full english is included in with the price with singles from £35.
Having stayed at the duke just the once. I would certainly recomend it as a pleasant & nice place to stay. Agree with other reviews. Worth 5 stars in many aspects. Still recurve junk mail with offers to stay after 4 years, intend to go back.
