Extract from Sun newspaper 28th January 2012
'Rather fittingly, our home for a week in the Dales was a converted pub in Crakehall called Malt Shovel House.
It's a delightful and beautifully furnished perch that swallowed up our large family without so much as a hiccup.
Crakehall is a pretty village with a good local shop and a huge green where cricketers play.
You can watch them whilst supping a pint and eating fantastic food at the Bay Horse Inn'.

Trip Advisor Recommendation

. . . this delightful country inn, overlooking the Green, dates back to the early 17th Century when it was a blacksmiths shop with stabling and sold ale! It is alleged that the trial of the 'Akebar murderer' (the murder stone stands at the roadside at Akebar) was held in the upstairs billiard room, the murderer being found guilty and later hanged in York.

The Bay Horse is renowned for its excellent food & drink - beers include Theakstones, Blacksheep (both brewed in nearby Masham to old and trusted Yorkshire recipes). A wide range of home cooked food is available at lunchtimes and evenings with all the produce being purchased locally and cooked to excellent standards.

Over the years the Inn has been extended and altered to its present day size. It features a cosy, well appointed bar with beamed ceilings and open log fire, and has a stunning, unspoiled view of the village green and cricket square.
