This is a great B&B. Mallard grange is a lovely old farmhouse, set in beautiful countryside with clean, comfortable rooms and a brilliant host. Maggie, as everyone says, is just great- friendly, welcoming, helpful and very knowledgeable about the local area. She'll help you find the perfect place to eat (including making reservations), and goes out of her way to... More

A wonderful B&B on a working farm just about across the road from Fountains Abbey. The proprietor, Maggie, was extraordinarily friendly and helpful, and cooked a damn fine breakfast. Very welcoming and well appointed place. Highly recommended.

On the recommendation of friends, my wife and I spent four days at Maggie's place at Mallard Grange. Excellent! Friendly and competent staff with Maggie personally doing the introductions and ensuring there's never a dull moment at the food (good selection, perfectly prepared) laden breakfast table. We'll be back! Eric and Grace Duncan

We have visited on several occasions. Maggie always greets us like old friends, with a welcoming cup of tea and home made biscuits. Our bedroom is always spacious, spotlessly clean, with a comfortable bed and an equally spacious en-suite bathroom. Breakfast is excellent with a wide and varied choice consisting wherever possible of top quality local produce. It is served... More

If you're looking for a fantastic B&B in Yorkshire where you are treated more as a family friend than a passing visitor, look no further than Mallard Grange. Before we even made it to the farm, Maggie swung into action, helping us to resolve an issue with our car on arrival in Ripon. She really is a great hostess and... More

What a super review, thank you! Delighted you feel so at home here and had a really comfortable stay. One of the great things about staying in a small, family run B&B is that we can offer a personal and friendly experience. We only have four guest bedrooms and the aim here is to make it feel more like coming... More

Maggie is so welcoming, even with us who stayed only for one night. The room was of very high quality and the breakfast was great with fresh fruits (I am a fruit lover). It was also a great opportunity to discuss with other guests. I would definitively recommend!

Many thanks for taking the time to review your one night stay and I am so pleased you enjoy your breakfast - we always have a good choice of items on our breakfast menu, as guests have varied preferences and, like you, some prefer a lighter option and fresh fruit, which we offer every day. Thanks again Maggie and Team. More

A lovely large, modern, quiet room. A delicious breakfast served family style so we met some other interesting guests. Most of all a delightfully friendly and helpful hostess. We stayed 4 days and wished we could have stayed longer.

A very warm, friendly welcome - Maggie served coffee on arrival. Spotlessly clean with an excellent standard of decor. Breakfast tasty and plentiful. Within walking distance of Fountain's Abbey and a very short distance by car to Ripon. Also within easy reach of many tourist areas. Would certainly recommend as a base for exploring the surrounding area.

This is our second visit to Mallard Grange. We had a very comfortable room with an outlook across the fields. One thing I liked is at breakfast you sit round one big table and get the chance to meet and chat to others. Their was also a great choice of breakfast items from a full English to cereals or smoked... More

Perfect location if you want to take a tour around Fountains abbey and continue to York... Maggie welcomed us very nicely and even served us a cup of tea in her own garden when we arrived.. Priceless! The bedroom was spacious, comfy and very clean. Highly recommended.
