The Wheatsheaf Hotel

  • James Herriot’s honeymoon vacation
  • Family run
  • Excellent quality and service

The Wheatsheaf is a fine country inn situated in the very attractive village of Carperby. In 1941 James Herriot took his honeymoon here and must have enjoyed many fine days exploring the lovely countryside in this part of Wensleydale. Greta Garbo can also be counted as one of the earlier visitors.

Paul & Carol pride themselves on their excellent service and and high quality of comfort. The accommodation is well presented and each room has an individual touch but all have the same standards of quality. There is a friendly bar and restaurant with a good choice of local beer and food.

Carperby is right in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales with great walks from the village, Aysgarth Falls and Castle Bolton on the doorstep and the market towns of Hawes and Leyburn only a short drive away.
