In brief: A picture-perfect ivy-clad inn dating back to the 17th century. Our highlight: We love the laid-back atmosphere and the fabulous food. Insider guide: Just two boutique rooms are available at the Sandpiper Inn, so you’re guaranteed impeccable service. Both have features such as exposed beams and fireplaces, in keeping with the property’s 17th century origins. Your stay will include a traditional full English breakfast to set you up for a day exploring Yorkshire – what’s not to love?
