It's a very hard working farm with a 4 room B&B attached. The B&B is run by the lady of the farm Maggie the farm by her husband and son. The rooms all look comfortable with tea, coffee, bottled tap water and sweet nibbles. It's an old house and farm set back from the main road so no road sounds.... More

A small lane from the main road passes through pastures with cattle and crops to arrive at the stone main house, adjacent stone guest quarters (2 of the 4 rooms) and the various outbuildings of this working farm. Maggie's warm, sincere greeting made us quite at home from the first moment of our 4 night stay. Breakfast, served starting at... More

Using trip advisor to choose a bed and breakfast relies upon the past reviews and reactions. In this case we chose the location based upon the constant good reviews. All true and extremely accurate. The room in this old farmhouse was appointed to the highest standard. The only issue with the breakfast was that the portions were too big! That... More

Stayed for two nights Maggie makes everyone very welcome and is a fantastic host. The rooms are of a very high standard and lack for nothing. Breakfast is perfect with all choices covered using locally sourced ingredients. Great location for visiting the area near to Ripon. Will be staying here again in the future. Highly recommended.

We stayed 3 nights with Maggie in one of the upstairs rooms in the farmhouse. The hospitality is fantastic as are the breakfasts. The setting is idyllic with atmosphere. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The nights (outside) were positively silent. Fountains Abbey is across the street. Without a doubt, the next time we visit the Ripon area, we... More

Spent a lovely few days at Mallard Grange B&B. Everything about our time at Mallard Grange was perfect. Maggie made us very welcome, our room was superb with a lovely comfortable King size bed and excellent en suite facilities. Fantastic choices for breakfast and always well cooked and presented. Thank you Maggie and your staff, we will return.

We had a wonderful time staying at Mallard Grange. The bed was comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, and the location was perfect (so close to Fountains Abbey!) Also, the farm is beautiful, and it was so cute to see the chickens clucking around - a nice change from the city. The room was very clean and well-furnished; we particularly liked... More

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast on a working farm. Chckens roam in the yard and there were cows in the nearby field when we were there. Maggie is welcoming and friendly and the breakfast is one of the very best I've had at any B&B, ingredients are sourced locally. The accomodation excellent, and is comfortable and clean. We... More

Mallard Grange is a delightful place to stay while visiting Studley Royal/Fountains Abbey or indeed for any reason. It is a little difficult to find, but persevere!

This is the perfect farm b&b get-away venue. From Maggie's warm welcome, to her excellent breakfasts, to pristinely clean accommodation, there is nothing to criticize. Not only that, but it is ideally situated as a base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales, Moors and historical sites in the area. Our room was the one on the web photo and... More
