From the moment we arrived on this Yorkshire farm, we felt right at home. Maggie's welcome is so warm and genuine - it is obvious her guests are her priority during their stay. She is a genial host and we enjoyed her sense of humour, listening to her stories and appreciated her wealth of knowledge of the local region. Breakfast... More

Many thanks for your most complimentary review - I am so very pleased you enjoyed your stay in our farmhouse B&B and enjoyed the relaxed and friendly atmosphere here. I will always remember your husband's longing for a good steak - I knew the ones served at the nearby Grantley Arms country inn would not disappoint! It was lovely to... More

Mallard Grange is a gem of a place. Host Maggie sets the scene with her friendly and homely personality, which is echoed by her lovely staff. Food and accommodation is top notch. Mallard Grange is peaceful and tranquil, and central to many attractions, to meet most needs. On the doorstep of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal, a must visit. We... More

You will always get a cup of tea and a friendly welcome from Maggie. The B&B is on a working farm just outside Ripon and not far from Fountains Abbey. Maggie is great at recommending things to do and places to eat. Breakfast is a communal affair around a large table where all the visitors can share their stories about... More

We only stayed one night but were made to feel so welcome and at home. The accommodation and breakfast were top of the range. The farmhouse is in a lovely setting and close to many places of interest. We thoroughly recommend Mallard Grange.

A very comfortable stay. Maggie, the hostess, made our visit special, not only recommending restaurants, etc, but booking tables for us too. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Our rooms were extremely comfortable and there was lots of choice at breakfast, much enjoyed around a large table chatting to other guests. We can well recommend this farmhouse b and... More

Hello Mary and Gang! Thank you very much for your super review, I am delighted you all enjoyed your stay. I have to say too that no one would have suspected that three of your party were aged between 80 - 90, but that didn't stop them popping up the winding staircase in the main farmhouse without any complaint.

We loved this B&B near Ripon UK. Maggie is a super hostess and runs a great B&B setup. We slept in the cottage, in spacious and relaxing accommodation, immaculately prepared and maintained. Breakfasts were great with other guests to chat to and a wide choice of cereals, fruit and cooked breakfasts. Close to the beautiful Fountains Abbey and lots of... More

Time went really slowly as we enjoyed our time here. Maggie made us very welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone. The breakfasts were fantastic, too! It's in lovely countryside but surprisingly near to things, too!

Greeted by "Maggie" the hostess with the mostest! She certainly knows how to run a business. Our room was spotlessly clean, a very large king sized bed with large fluffy pillows, also personal little touches with fresh flowers in the room, a little box of chocolates, bath robes, the list goes on. Breakfast was a wonderful experience with fresh sourced... More

What a fabulous review, thank you so much. I really enjoy running our B&B and so it is very rewarding when guests have enjoyed their stay so much they tell us they would recommend us and would also come back again - we shall look forward to seeing you both soon I hope.
