Millgate Bed and Breakfast, Masham, North Yorkshire: B&B review

February 3, 2015

We are going to spend a night in what TripAdvisor users have rated the world’s greatest B&B which, rather conveniently for Yorkshire-based me, is in Masham on the eastern edge of the Yorkshire Dales. I’m ready for the best, having done many nights in a selection of the worst. Like the one with bed bugs, or the one with the unfortunate owner who had Tourette’s syndrome and kept throwing things, including himself, at the walls. Then there was the ceiling with water pouring through. “What’s the problem?” asked the proprietor. “The bed isn’t wet.” No, but there was a single glistening pubic hair on the pillow.

We can forget all that now. We are in safe hands. Sue and Andrew Burrell of Millgate B&B, Masham, are very safe hands. Sue’s been a firefighter, chef, make-up artist, mental health worker, lawyer, child support officer and barkeeper. She also makes excellent scones. Once we are settled into the lounge, we tuck in immediately.
