If you choose to have dinner with us we ask you to kindly book at least 24 hours in advance because Liz goes to the local butcher and farm shop to see what they have that looks good and then decides what to cook. Several items on the menu may have travelled no further than our garden.
You need to make your choice from that days dinner menu before 4pm on the day of arrival and at breakfast if you are staying over with us and want dinner that evening. We can email a menu to you the day before you arrive to choose from if you are arriving after 4pm. Dinner is served 7 for 7.30pm.
When you book dinner we ask you if you have any preferences and put a menu together so we can take your likes and dislikes and dietary needs into account. It is as personal and simple as that.

My Mum and I have stayed with Graham and Liz at Bank Villa on numerous occasions and have just returned from another fantastic stay. Graham and Liz couldn't do more to make us welcome, particularly my Mum who is elderly. The Guest House is spotless throughout, the bedrooms well equipped with very comfortable beds and lovely linen. Liz's breakfasts and dinners are superb. Masham itself is a perfect place for touring the Dales and is a beautiful town.
”Another great stay with Liz and Graham”
This is our 5th stay now at Banks Villa and the standards of the place have never slipped or wained in this time... from the cleanliness of the rooms to Liz's fantastic breakfasts. Infact the whole place including gardens is pristine and a credit to them both.. nothing is too much trouble for either of them and we always have a good natter. This place is ideal if youre visiting either brewery with the Black Sheep one being at the end of their garden.
”Lovely guest house, would stay again”
We were well positioned with the location. Guest house owners were really friendly - we took them up on all their advice on where to eat and visit (original hiking plans waylaid by snow) and weren't disappointed. Breakfast was excellent, accommodation spotlessly clean, and our room offered a lot. Would definitely stay again.
We stayed with 2 other couples for 2 nights. What a lovely place, great welcome from Liz and Graham and wonderful breakfasts including a full Yorkshire and a daily special ( the eggs benedict were fantastic). Great location just near the Black Sheep Brewery. Comfortable clean rooms, will definitely stay here again.
We have just stayed at this wonderful place and so glad we found it. Liz and Graham we just the best hosts, nothing was too much trouble. The room was really lovely and bed huge. Breakfast was great too. Thanks for a great nights stay. If we pass this way again we will definitely book here again.
