We stayed here for a wedding and had such a wonderful time. The owners were so welcoming. Great rooms, great scenery and fantastic breakfasts! Our sons loved seeing the farm animals out of their window when they woke up and Eric let them pick their own eggs out of the chicken house

I stayed in the Old Granary last week. Had a lovely stay under what I assume was the new management. A very welcoming place. Breakfast was excellent. Rooms were clean, tidy and very accommodating. Nice and close to York and Harrogate. I will definitely be revisiting.
