A Family Business

Stone Close Tea Room and B&B is located in the heart of the picturesque village of Dent, nestled in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. A warm welcome greets you to this 17th Century grade II listed building. Many of the features you will see are original, to retain the historical character and charm of the property. Stone Close is the home of Alison and Andy Cowton who run the business with much help from their daughter Anna. Alison & Anna are front of house and do all the baking of some fabulous cakes, whilst Andrew cooks all the specials, soups and sandwiches on offer.

Stay on a Sunday and Monday night at our usual room rate, full day out on the Monday (inc packed lunch) taking shots of the beautiful scenery we have on our doorstep. Tuesday morning we do some more work around the cobbled village streets of Dent and some editing. You leave on Tuesday after 12 am with a printed photograph in your possession as a permanent reminder of your stay.
