  • "Our second time at The Granary and booked again for next year."

    It’s just a lovely cozy cottage and well equipped. The open log fire is perfect for this time of year.

  • "This was our fourth Oct/ Nov holiday at The Granary and again we were delighted to return to this lovely holiday home."

    As ever, we found everything ready and pristine for our arrival. We were blessed with a wonderful week’s weather ( apart from one day) and so were able to enjoy the different walks in the area. Our Springer, Harry, is never happier than when he is at Appleton. The Moors Inn is as reliable as ever and we enjoyed a family meal to celebrate October and November birthdays which we had to cancel last year. Everything about our week’s stay was excellent and thank you once again Jamie and Joel for your hospitality. We intend to book The Granary for the same week next year and are looking forward already. The peace and quiet, the fire and the skies at night are all bonuses. Thank you so much. Anna and John Mack and family.

  • "Lovely, comfortable cottage in a beautiful setting and village."

    A bit compact, especially if 4 adults sharing and may be different furniture/layout would help. Kitchen has most of everything you need. All holiday lets vary and this one had kitchen roll, dishwasher stuff and access to cleaning equipment (which somd don’t), there was no washing up liquid (if you prefer to wash up by hand). The added garden room is lovely to sit and read while watching the birds and squirrels. The owners live onsite but weren’t intrusive at all. There is a lovely patio for the cottage and the owners are happy for visitors to walk down their garden if they aren’t using it. Beautiful garden and chickens to feed your old greens and banana skins! Who knew, but they love them

    The cottage had fabulous gardens where we could sit late afternoon after a busy day out walking. Just very peaceful as well off the road and very private. Appleton le Moors is a lovely village with a very good pub for food. Jamie and Joel were around to sort out any queries and offer advice on the area, which was greatly appreciated. The fresh eggs from their hens down the garden were an added bonus as were the milk, tea,coffee and biscuits awaiting us on our arrival. I would definitely recommend this property to relatives and friends. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are already planning to visit again either later in the year or next spring.

    It would have been slot better for us if we would have had outside space enclosed so our dog could go out safely and in his own place. Not great as it was open onto garden of owners so better with a gate being added I think. The only thing inside was the shower you couldn’t get the right temperature and not much power in it. Apart from that lovely cottage and lovely owner very friendly

  • "We loved the cottage."

    The village is easily accessible from the main road but has lovely rural feeling about it. Sheep have the right to roam around the villiage so the property is gated. I’d love to go & visit when it’s the lambing season. The cottage itself is in a private corner that overlooks the gorgeous gardens of the main house. It has its own patio area with tables and chairs overlooking the garden. The cottage was cozy & well equipped. There’s a pub a couple of doors away that serves great food & Pickering is about a 10 minute drive with a couple of restaurants.
