About Karen Griggs
My husband Adam and I bought The Old Forge (and The Garden Shed) in August 2013 in a poor state, and since then have worked hard to restore both the property and the gardens. We love the results and are sure you will do too. We love the space it gives us for our animals, and currently have two guinea pigs, three rabbits, eight chickens (although that number changes regularly!) and a small dog called Bob.
Karen Griggs purchased this Cabin in 2013

What makes this Cabin unique
Secluded, unique little house set in private gardens. Ideal for couples who want to escape from it all and spend time together.

Absolutely fantastic time
Fantastic would go again in a flash
This is our second stay at The Garden Shed this year and we had another magical time, everything was warm and cosy inside on those chilly outside November evenings and during the day we were out and about visiting the surrounding area, including York Christmas Market and Castle Howard chilling with mince pies and mulled wine, also visited shops Karen mentioned that she knew I would love. Karen as ever was wonderful and nothing was a bother. Benni our full coat Shih Tzu loved the garden and knowing we could leave The Garden Shed door open and that he was safe and sound in our private garden area was brilliant We will visit again next year for sure. So enjoyed our stay, Jackie, Gary and Benni
