ROOMS WITH A VIEW
3 September 2017
High on my room ‘essentials’ list is a quality bed topped with the best linen and duvet to ensure a comfortable night’s sleep, a great shower with a generous supply of top toiletries, and thoughtful cosseting extras such as Classic FM on the radio and the lights on when I arrive on a winter’s evening. But, two easy chairs or a roll-top tub facing a stunning country or sea view, or looking out across bird-rich marshes, now that’s very special indeed. Book, relax and linger longer in the best rooms, perhaps with glass of wine in hand, at these fabulous pubs with rooms. For many more choices visit www.innplaces.co.uk.

The Lister Arms, Malham, North Yorkshire
Expect to be looked after from the moment you step into the big stone-flagged bar at this 17th-century inn deep in the Yorkshire Dales. Kick back in front of the roaring fire after a walk round mighty Malham Tarn, then retire to one of the refurbished rooms; all have superb views across the village green to the hills beyond.
