My friend and I stayed at rockwood house for 1 night. We were given a very warm welcome by the lady of the house. She explained the rules and showed us the room we were staying in. At first glance the room was impeccable. Absolutely stunning with a gorgeous view! The bathroom was spotless and everything was fresh! The breakfast was amazing and was cooked to perfection! I will definitely be staying here every time i visit!!

Rockwood House - Rating 5/5

Nice house, larger than it looks from outside. Decent sized room, clean and comfortable with a very good breakfast and free parking in a public car park opposite. This is in the village of Embsay, about 2 miles from Skipton, altho there is a good pub across the road serving food. A relaxing, quiet stay with friendly owners. Recommended.

fabulous family room! - Rating 5/5

Rockwood House is a gem set in the jewels of the Yorkshire Dales. The beautifully decorated family room afforded splendid views over the countryside and was a perfect place for our one night stop. Breakfast was lovely and for just over £100, Rockwood House offered value without cutting down on comfort and taste. Our hosts were friendly and made our stay even more pleasant.

Feedback - Rating 4/5

Very friendly owners Jean and Robert, lovely clean house, in lovely little village. The only negative thing to say is, with the windows open at night because it was really warm weather, is the noise of the traffic, and the shower was not powerful, and the temperature was a bit temperamental.


The road/street through our village is rural. Generally there is very little traffic at night though recently there has been filming at night for a feature film, this is beyond our control. Sorry it is not a power shower!

Reviewer:Karen Myers | Tue 2nd Aug 2016

Cosy and friendly - Rating 4/5

Mini break.- Rating 4/5

The B &B itself is situated a couple of miles outside Skipton in the village of Embsay.When we arrived, we were greeted with a friendly welcome. We were immediately shown to our Family room, which they had forgotten to make up the single bed! Non the less, it was a very comfortable, clean room with a large en suit.A hearty breakfast was served the following morning accompanied by Mrs. offering ideas for our stay.My wife briefly met Mr. who again was very nice.All in all, very pleasant stay.

Rockwood B and B - Rating 4/5

Lovely view of the dales from my window. The room was clean to a level one would expect to find at any corporate chain hotels. The owners were very friendly and I would have tried the full English breakfast if I had more time, as this time was a business trip for me. My only tiny reservation was that there wasn't any complimentary soap in the bathroom. I would certainly stay again as I want to try the breakfast next time.Can only give 4 stars prior to having breakfast next time. Great location for a short walking holiday. There is also an attractive pub opposite and 23 hours free parking opposite the B and B.


Apologies for lack of soap. Oversight on our part - you should have mentioned it - we normally provide.

Thankyou to Jean for a prompt and comfortable stay.The room to the front of the lodgings was light, fresh and very comfortable. It was great to have a parking space in the public carpark right across the road. A lovely view of the hilltop through lace covered window added a peaceful feel to the room. Liz Western Australia
