Situated in a quiet backwater away from the hustle and bustle of daily life Stoney End is a Grade 2 Listed Building dating back to the seventeenth century, originally providing a barn for the neighbouring farm house. It was converted by us back in 1990 and is now our family home as well as providing stunning guest accommodation within the tiny hamlet of Worton, near Askrigg in Wensleydale.
We are inspected by Visit England as Guest Accommodation so you can book with us with confidence, but do not expect an hotel, a guesthouse or even a run of the mill B&B we offer a unique experience in beautiful Wensleydale.
In addition to the usual home comforts, we also offer the following for the use of our guests:
