Why we've chosen The Carlton Lodge

Here’s a thought: why not use the breakfast menu at Carlton Lodge as a walking planner? Hike to Kirklington or Dalton to see where your bacon comes from, Masham to visit the sausage-maker, Allerston to watch the hens laying and Whitby to spot fishermen landing herrings for the kippers. Otherwise, take inspiration from the guesthouse’s healthy library of walking guidebooks and maps. Several long-distance trails including the Cleveland Way pass this warm, timeless B&B in historic Helmsley, at the national park’s western edge, and there are plenty of shorter strolls to the likes of Rievaulx Abbey. Back inside, the cosy lounge offers WiFi and a DVD library for post-hike relaxation, the beds are large and comfy, and the welcome effusive.
