  • "Our stay at the Granary was excellent."

    The location is great as it backs onto a woods so perfect for dog walking. The geographic location is 5 mins from the ring road around York giving easy access to all areas of North and East Yorkshire as well as the Park and Ride for visiting York. The accommodation itself is spotless and all the kitchen equipment and bedding were of excellent quality. The heating was fantastic and we were so cosy. We had a great week and cannot recommend the Granary enough. It was great. Thank you

    It was very clean and had all the necessary facilities including a local club house where you could eat. The decor was stunning and provided a backdrop that was aesthetically pleasing. Looking out of the window viewing the birds and the bird feeder was a joy each morning! Thank you!

  • "Just returned from from a week in this wonderful property."

    I cannot fault it in any way. Hol cotts are often let down by being shabby - not here! We've stayed twice now & each time it was immaculately clean, with all quality furnishings. We chose to sleep in the single beds - so comfortable & clean!! The setting is very, very peaceful with a lovely outlook onto mature trees. We sat outside watching an array of birds feeding on the bird feeder, including a regular woodpecker and squirells. There are lovely strolls to be had around the site & a lovely wood to walk in, our dog loved it here. We visited York every day - 20 min drive (outside of rush hour).Then returning to the Granary after was so comfortable with perfect peace. A wonderful property 10/10. Thank you to the owner Mellissa

    It looked good on the listing but was even better than we expected. It was a really cold night and very late when we arrived but the house was very warm and cosy and lights had been left on which shows how much the owner cares. There was even a Christmas tree and some chocolates! Frankly we didn't want to leave!

    Cake on arrival too which was nice! Heating was quirky.....electric panel heaters coming on and off when they felt like it (one bedroom set at 20deg would be fine and warm, while the other bedroom, set at 26 degrees didn't seem to want to stay on at all so room was cold). Just wish we had more time there. We will be returning. Good quiet location (while we were there) with easy access to woodland walks but also not far to go for an outlet shopping mall (with park and ride) and the city. Not sure how quiet it would be if busy with campers / golfers etc as well but very quiet while we were there.

    The cottage was much nicer than the pictures suggest. Clean. Warm. Comfy sofas. Comfy beds. Had all the amenities we needed. The area is lovely and quiet. Easy to park outside. The description failed to mention that the golf course clubhouse on site offers a Sunday carvery which was a pleasant surprise! There is a pub in nearby Wheldrake that serves food (5 minutes by car). The park and ride for York is just 5 minutes away too so it was perfect for York sightseeing. A great short stay, the girls loved it so much they want to go back and we most likely will in the future.

    The welcoming pack was a lovely idea, as was everything else made available to us during our stay. a big thank you to Melissa and her family they all made you feel so welcome. The cottage totally exceeded our expectations, really nice furniture and fittings and lovely and warm inside as the weather for our week was dry and sunny it was still very cold outside. we spent hours watching the family of squirrels leaping from branch to branch along the trees in front of the cottage as well as all the little robins, wrens, and doves feeding from the bird stand. The pictures of the cottage do not do it justice as the views across the golf course first thing in the morning when everything is covered with the early morning mist and then late in the evening when the winter sun was setting the scene's were purely idyllic. The city of York is only a short distance away as is the designer centre and Monks cross all great places for shopping. We will definitely be returning and hope to get in a few more rounds of golf than we did.

    Bedside table in the twin room would have been helpful. There was a lamp, but it sat on the window ledge, and was therefore behind the curtain at night. It would have been helpful to have a draining rack at the kitchen sink. The postcode took one to the Farm, rather than showing that the house was adjacent to the golf club - this could be clarified on the website. It would help to give the Ordnance Survey grid reference, as this is more precise. A a general comment, with USB charging being so necessary, it might be sensible to encourage cottage owners to fit sockets that have USB charging included.

About the location

YORK

Howardian Hills AONB 14 miles; Leeds 25 miles; North York Moors National Park 25.4 miles.

The city of York needs no recommendation, for it teems with interest for the holidaymaker: the Minster, its medieval walls, boat trips on the River Ouse, York Races, museums(including the famous National Railway Museum and the Castle Museum), and the internationally-renowned Jorvik Viking Centre and its "time trip" experience. Summer and winter, there is something to fascinate the whole family. Explore York’s quaint streets and hidden corners, or take an excursion further afield to the Dales, Moors or the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey. Yorkshire is rich in stately homes, with Harewood House and Castle Howard just two of several within an hour’s drive. A cycling city boasting two theatres, character pubs and great shopping, York has it all.
