We stayed for 2 nights during lambing. Three lambs and two goslings arrived whilst we were there! Barry and Elaine are very friendly hosts and you can take part in as much or as little farm life as you want. We made sure we were back from our travels for the evening bottle feeding of the lambs.
The accommodation is beautiful, spotlessly clean and the breakfast was super. Galphay is a lovely little village - just 10 minutes from both Ripon and Fountains Abbey. The pub in the village serves good food and is just a minutes walk away. We would love to stay again.
