We have stayed at the Durham Ox for 4 nights so far this year - 2 in January and 2 in April. Our first stay was booked because our Christmas & New Year hadn't gone according to plan and we wanted a treat. We paid a bit more than we have at other places but we did not regret our choice for a minute and booked our April stay as we were leaving in January. Similarly, when we left last week we booked a further visit in July.
The things that will keep us coming back are - comfortable and spacious bedrooms with lovely ensuite bathrooms and enough seating for both of us (in too many places there is only 1 chair) - high quality tea & coffee in the rooms rather than standard sachets - friendly and helpful staff - a delicious breakfast with a good choice of hot and cold dishes and for the ultimate treat you can mix your own bucks fizz or bloody mary! We ate in the excellent restaurant each evening but I have reviewed this in the appropriate section.
Crayke is in a good location for exploring other parts of Yorkshire. Our main interest is walking and there is plenty of scope for this within easy reach of Crayke but if this is not your thing, there are plenty of places to visit and it is easy to get to York by car or public transport.
We are looking forward to our next visit and it will probably not be our last!
