This, as others have written, is a beautiful place to stay. The main house and our accommodation - we stayed in The Kelly Suite - oozed historical charm. We were lucky to have very pleasant weather and this showed just how special the place clearly is. Henry, Anna, the lovely kids and caretaker were very welcoming - tea, cakes and... More

We stayed at Johnby Hall for 1 night we were welcomed by Anna, Henry, Nicholas and Lucy who were all very friendly and hospitable. Anna made us coffee and cakes we had in the lovely garden. We were shown the studio and Anna offered to put the heating on. We were leaving early on the Sunday morning 5.30am ish so... More

We have stayed at many Wolsey Lodges and were disappointed by this property. We felt the description on the website hugely overstated the reality. While Anna and Henry were friendly, from the general chaos and lack of organisation, we had the impression they had taken on too much and couldn't give the necessary time and attention to guests or the...

We recently stayed at Johnby Hall for a weekend break and fell in love with the place immediately. Johnby is a stunning property in a wonderful location, the B&B accommodation was perfect and was filled with beautiful pieces of furniture including the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in and lovely little details; freshly picked flowers from the garden,...

I stayed at Johnby en route to Scotland along with two couples, one of whom was travelling back from Scotland, having also stayed at Johnby on their way up to Scotland. Henry and Anna were really welcoming hosts and supper felt very much like a dinner party; the food was also very tasty. Johnby is a very relaxing and tranquil... More

We found this B&B on a 'dog friendly' website and booked in for one night. It was the perfect place for us and we stayed for 4 nights not venturing further north as originally intended! Our hosts Henry, Anna and the children are delightful and made us feel very welcome. It is in a perfect spot for a tranquil relaxing... More

We stayed at Johnby Hall for 2 nights and we had a fantastic stay. The grounds are lovely, the welcome you receive very warm and the accommodation (we stayed in The Studio) was great - it felt homely as soon as you walked in the door. We ate with Henry and other guests on the first night in the main... More

We were made to feel most welcome for our 2 night stay. spent lots of time in the wood making dens and look forward to coming back and seeing garden in full bloom. Grand breakfast in the main house and chocolate bunnies for the kids so thoughtful. Very comfy bed and bedding often a rarity xxxxx

It is unreasonable to feel nostalgic for a place you have only spent one night at, but in the case of our recent visit to Johnby Hall this would be an accurate description of how we felt after we had left. ‘The bacon is not our own, I’m afraid’ is how Mr Howard served our breakfast in the main hall...

We spent a lovely family weekend in the Studio, which is ideally set-up for 2 adults and 2 children with a holiday cottage feel and plenty of room. The children enjoyed feeding the animals, especially the pigs and chickens, and watching the red squirrel on the feeder just outside the door. Breakfast was the best I've ever had in a... More
