Malayan Spout Hotel

The princess said oooh! lets go on the North Yorkshire Moors for half term. This hotel is doing Bed Breakfast and two course evening meal for two at £99. I agreed because…… well its easier isn’t it and I like a good old hike, but frankly I wasn’t expecting a lot at £50 each. We arrived early, left our bags at reception and set off for a little walk. First impression of the hotel was, ‘Hmm Hm (sort of Laurel and Hardyesque)

The little walk turned into 20km as neither of us are very good with sticking to paths and rules and so it was we found ourselves in the woods with a setting sun. I realised that half hour from now we would be lost to the world, reduced to mere statistics. “Two hikers found torn to pieces after three day search.” The princess reminded me that there were no wolves, witches or demons on the moors and suggested we go back the way we came. I reluctantly agreed, there’s no fun in going back

This where I can safely say that if you are visiting the North Yorkshire Moors go to a place called Goathland and stay at the Mallyan Spout Hotel. The setting and ambiance was  fabulous 🙂

The staff were so lovely and welcoming that after the walk we sat and relaxed in the bar, after 20k I needed a couple of pints of liquid refreshment 😉 But you can’t sit in the bar all night, or so I was told, so eventually we headed up to the room to get ready for dinner and what a room and what views!

Heading out for dinner once again I was surprised not only by the beautifully set out dining room, but the menu and then the food, well I had Pigeon to start and then Pan Seared Venison Loin. Yes, I know I’ve probably upset the vegans and the Disney fans by eating Bambi’s mum, but there’s no point in lying is there?

Dry January was long gone so the £99 deal was a little more than that, with the wine….oh and the beer and of course the princess was right, we weren’t torn apart by wolves, witches or demons 😉 Have a great weekend folks xx

  7. That’s sounds wonderfully delightful and very well-priced!

    But I can’t be the only person reading this who instantly flashed back to the “Stay off the moors” scene in American Werewolf in London!”

    Oooo not a bad price when food is thrown in, too. 20km is certainly the biggest ‘little walk’ I’ve heard of, so liquid refreshment at the bar afterwards was a definite requirement 😉 Sounds like a great exploration, and you’ve got fab photos. I really like the inside of the hotel, very warm and welcoming and cosy. It makes a big difference to have lovely staff, too. xx

    On the way back from Whitby we stopped off at Goathland, Charlie; mainly due to its Harry Potter link, of course. We didn’t walk up as far as the Mallyan Spout Hotel (I checked the map) but had a cool drink in the local hotel closer to the station! Once again you’ve reminded me of that fabulous holiday! Ahhhhhh.
    Great pics; fab hotel: “3-star Whitby Hotel in Goathland with Free Breakfast. Free Parking and WiFi.”
    Maybe next time! 🙂
