My partner and I stayed here on new years eve just to have a night away from home, it was lovely! The room was very 'shabby chic' in style and very clean. The breakfast was also lovely.

My wife and I stayed here overnight on our way further north. The Old Granary House provided great accommodation just a few miles outside York. Other reviewers have commented on the comfortable beds, and we would certainly agree with them. Hosts Val and Glen are warm and friendly and made us very welcome.

We stayed here for 4 days after our wedding - the hosts are lovely, breakfasts really good (though we didn't feel there was a great deal of choice - maybe by getting some bits written down it might make it clearer) and brilliantly located for York and Harrogate amongst others. Peaceful nights sleep. We stayed in the superior room, the... More

Peaceful location yet easy access to York. Would highly recommend staying at this B&B as from the moment of arrival you are greeted with a warm welcome. Nothing is too much trouble and the hosts are extremely friendly.

Centrally located for York, Harrogate and Knaresborough, this Bed and Breakfast is ideal. We stayed here for visiting the Great Yorkshire Show 2013 so that we could be at the show early to miss the traffic! It is about a 15 minute drive to the showground from here.
