Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in the Granary as trial guests for Sarah and Johnny to give the property a 'dry run' before they let it out to paying guests. I can honestly say we had the most fantastic stay!! The house is beautifully decorated, warm and equipped with just about everything you could need from board games and DVD's to kitchen equipment. We absolutely loved the log burner, snuggley blankets and candles. The location is perfect...we were able do have the best of both worlds with Christmas shopping in York on the Saturday then a long walk in gorgeous countryside on the Sunday. We had an amazing stay and were made to feel so welcome. The cottage is gorgeous - we didn't want to go home!! Thank you for letting us stay xx

Beautiful property with a helpful owners and lots of thoughtful little touches

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there a group of 7 on a hen weekend. It was perfect, exactly what we were looking for. Beautiful location in the countryside about thirty mins from the centre of York. Sarah was very accommodating as a host, came and met us when we arrived to show us how to use certain items and there was wood ready for use on the log burner. Little touches in each bedroom added to the stay. Overall I would recommend to anyone and definitely return.

Myself, my 5 year old and my mum and brother stopped here for a few days over Christmas. Before we arrived Sarah, sent a message to ask if we wanted the Christmas decks up, which were lovely. Sarah also set up a little present hunt for my little one, which she absolutely loved.

Whilst there, nothing was too much trouble. The Granary has everything that we could need, all kitchen equipment and utensils and plenty of towels. The beds were very comfortable. The log fire was amazing.

There are also 2 pigs at the back of the property whom greeted us every morning and if we went out greeted us again on our return.

The granary is also a short 15-20 minute drive into York town centre and less than 10 minutes away from an Aldi and an Asda.

I wouldn’t hesitate in booking this again.

This house is equipped to an amazing standard with all equipment seeming to be top of the range. Sarah could not have been more helpful and made us feel very welcome. We hope to return next year if at all possible.

Spacious, comfy and really helpful owners

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay for a family birthday celebration. There's lots of space and it's very well equipped, super clean, nice little extras such as an arrival basket of goodies plus toiletries and it's really close to York and the park & ride. Sarah and Johnny were hugely helpful and even opened up their camper van pitches, which were closed for winter, so extra family could join us. Would stay again and definitely recommend this place. We used Saunts Catering (recommended by Sarah) for the birthday meal - they prepared and delivered it to us for heating up. Again, would highly recommend them, fabulous meal with extra touches to make it really special for us.
