With an emphasis on absolute comfort with touches of real luxury, the four rooms have been converted from buildings at South Dalton’s Old Lambing Yard, a five-minute walk from the Pipe and Glass itself.
With a nod to the building’s original function, they’re named Jacob, Lincoln, Swaledale and Ryeland – four of the more unusual breeds of sheep.
Visitors are welcomed by the delightful scene of a ewe with two lambs, created especially by leading Yorkshire sculptor Emma Stothard.
The four rooms are all en-suite and each has its own sheltered garden-cum-courtyard – each room is completely private, with Swaledale and Ryeland sharing a main entrance and lobby, available to book as an interconnecting suite, perfect for a family or two couples.
Come inside, and you’ll find the welcome you’ve come to expect from the Pipe and Glass. Crisp linens, furs (faux, of course!), velvets and woollens in the bedrooms contrast with slate, stone and mirrors in the bathrooms to create a sense of tactile elegance.
Each room has its own special defining feature – a slipper bath in Jacob’s bathroom, an oak four-poster bed in Lincoln’s bedroom, an antique mirrored feature wall in Swaledale’s bathroom and a stone feature wall in Ryeland’s.
And in each room, you’ll find all those special little touches that define the Pipe and Glass: homemade treats alongside the tea- and coffee-making facilities, Roberts DAB radios, extra blankets for chillier nights on your patio, Temple Spa toiletries and torches. Yes, you read that right – torches. Don’t forget them when you head to the Pipe and Glass for dinner – it gets very dark in the countryside, you’ll need them on the way back to your room!
