Why we love it...

Individual character and charm

The Place

Traddock? It means a trading paddock, and this hotel stands in a field that was forever used for this purpose. It’s a grey stone house on the edge of a mostly pretty village, part of the scenery and ideally located for the big walks in the south-western Yorkshire Dales. The feeling of being in its skin continues inside. Renovated by the Reynoldses as a new venture in the last ten years, original features and country antiques sit comfortably alongside new furniture and fabrics in confident ‘country house’ taste. The three sitting rooms, one spacious and well proportioned, are quirkily linked by the bar, the standing area in front of it doubling as a passage.
Our reporter’s room was again in good country house taste – pine chest, pine wardrobe, rusty-red wall paper nicely offsetting cream-yellow paintwork. There were two easy chairs but no desk and chair for writing. The bathrooms have been significantly upgraded since our last visit, so reports are more than welcome.
