Our second stay at Mallard Grange and Maggie greeted us with her inimitable style, so friendly, like greeting old friends. Our stay was perfect and our relatives were over the moon with the farm and the hospitality given to us. They adored the room, decor and furnishings and really enjoyed the whole weekend stay. The breakfast table was wonderful and... More

This was our fifth visit to Mallard Grange. As usual Maggie was most welcoming, greeting us with tea and biscuits in the garden. The rooms are all very clean and well equipped, and have very comfy beds. Breakfast around the huge table is delicious with lots of choice. We love visiting Mallard Grange and will definitely be staying again.

A great place to stay with a really welcoming hostess. Mallard grange is set within a working farm but is peaceful yet welcoming. Maggie is a wonderful hostess and nothing is too much trouble. My husband and I stayed for an evening after finding it by chance on the internet - I'm so glad we did. The rooms are all... More

This was our third visit to Maggie and Mallard Grange. Everything that people write about Mallard Grange is true. Maggie makes everyone really welcome and nothing is too much trouble. Everyone sits down together to breakfast and once she has finished cooking Maggie joins her guests for a chat. She is full of interesting stories and you can spend a... More

Beginning with the early 6 AM breakfast that I needed to go biking and the maps provided so that I could make it to the first climb without getting lost. The... More

Our third stay at Mallard Grange and yet again expectations were exceeded by Maggie and her team. We simply wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else when we're in this area. Great weather too. We also fell in love with the kittens but that turned into a bit of a saga, as Maggie knows! Thank you again for a wonderful time.... More

All the superlatives have been used by the other reviewers and I do not wish to merely duplicate their efforts. One feature stands out above all others and that is Maggie. She has a PhD in hospitality and turns the theory into fantastic practice making her place a supreme chill out experience and the breakfasts are to die for! Maggie,... More

Gosh Bob, people will think I have paid you to write such a complimentary review!! However, I have to say that I am so very pleased you felt so chilled out and at home here and that you rated our breakfasts so highly.

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.

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
