          We stayed for 2 nights and from arrival to departure the staff were very friendly and helpful. The building is 17th century so one must make some concessions but these are also the reasons you might stay in such an old place. The stairway is creaky and narrow, the cobble stone lane beside echo's the sounds of Whitby (perfect). Our room was very comfortable, but I think travelling in the UK one should get used to double beds as there seems a lack of queen or king probably due to the room sizes in general. Breakfast is included and the menu is extensive. A nice quiet nights sleep and a lovely place to stay.

After a couple of hours we wanted to see more of the countryside so left the motorway at Doncaster though we skirted this large town and continued towards Selby. Here we stopped to see Selby Abbey and have some lunch.

          The Abbey dates from 1069 when the Benedictines, at the invitation of William the Conqueror, set it ...
