There's an old Yorkshire saying, 'you can take the lad out of Yorkshire but you can't take Yorkshire out of the lad' or in this case the lad and lass!
Robert’s favourite aspect about running a guest house in Swaledale is waking up every day to the natural beauty of the area. After graduating from Loughborough University, Robert achieved chartered status as an engineer before working for many years in industry and construction. When the time came for new challenges, Robert was naturally drawn back to his home county of Yorkshire to run his very own bed and breakfast. Robert really enjoys meeting the wide variety of interesting individuals from all over the world who stay at our B & B in Reeth. When he does finally get time to relax, you will find him pursuing one of his hobbies, which include walking, classic cars and industrial archaeology.
After graduating from Nottingham University, Sheila worked initially in the agricultural industry before changing careers to become a science teacher but after over 20 years in the classroom, she also decided that a change in life-style and a new challenge was needed and so moved to Cambridge House. Sheila's aim is to provide guests with the best holiday experience possible particularly where breakfast is concerned! Sheila spends her spare time cooking, walking the dogs Jack, the Jack Russell, Dora, the Labrador and our newly acquired rescue dog, Peggy, a poodle x golden retriever . She also retains a keen interest in wildlife, nature and biology.
Both Sheila and Robert ran a small guest house from their previous home, a small holding, before moving to Cambridge House.
We take food seriously and have recently dusted off our 'glad rags' to attend the annual Taste Awards 2016 where we won the 'Best Yorkshire Breakfast'.
