  • Any Restaurants nearby?
    We are based on a farm in a countryside location, 3 miles from Ripon which has a good selection of places to eat. Within a 3 mile radius there are some lovely country inns and only a mile from us is Grantley Hall Hotel. When guests book I usually send out a list of places so they can book ahead if they wish. Regards Maggie

  • What time is breakfast served on Sat am? We would like to go to Park run at fountains abbey at 0900.
    Usually between 8.30 a.m. and 9 p.m., however, I have offered previous Park runners an earlier breakfast - or a continental style breakfast post run. Regards Maggie

  • Is there a ground floor twin room?
    Two rooms are on the ground floor. They have zip and link beds so can be big super king doubles or twin beds. One room has a walk in shower. Please give me the dates so I can let you know if a ground floor room is available. Maggie

Host Info

Host Review Score

Mallard Grange Farmhouse is over 500 years old, has a lot of character and is rather quirky with the odd creak and groan, but has a lovely friendly atmosphere. The home of the Johnson family since 1933 and offering Bed and Breakfast accommodation to guests since 1993.
There is lots to do and see in this area; for history lovers, Fountains Abbey World Heritage Site is less than a mile away. Markenfield Hall, Ripley Castle and Newby Hall are also within a short drive. For garden lovers the RHS Garden is just a 25 mile drive away, Newby Hall has wonderful herbaceous boarders blooming all summer long. For music lovers check out Ripon and Harrogate Festivals. Or just borrow a map and drive or walk in some stunning countryside before dinner at an excellent local country inn or restaurant.
