Mallard Grange

Ripon, Yorkshire
Bed & Breakfast

Unwind and feel part of the family in glorious rural Yorkshire. The farmhouse is rambling and peaceful, rooms are big, breakfasts generous


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Perfect farmhouse B&B. Hens, cats, sheepdogs wander the garden, an ancient apple tree leans against the wall, guests unwind and feel part of the family. Enter the rambling, deep-shuttered 16th-century farmhouse, cosy with well-loved family pieces, and feel at peace with the world. Breakfast is generous – homemade muffins, poached pears with cinnamon, a sizzling full Monty. A winding steep stair leads to big, friendly bedrooms, two cheerful others await in the converted 18th-century smithy, and Maggie’s enthusiasm for this glorious area is as genuine as her love of doing B&B. It’s a gem!

All one could want in a farm B&B: a warm welcome, bags of character, lovely rooms, peaceful surroundings, loads of good tips for places to visit and where to eat... and a brilliant breakfast! Mallard Grange is also ideally placed for visiting Fountains Abbey, Pately Bridge, Ripon... and lovely walks in the Dales. Thank you, Maggie.

Peter, Lichfield

One perfect stay! Maggie is so welcoming, the rooms quiet and very comfortable, the breakfasts magnificent (even for Yorkshire!). Maggie and her team went out of their way to ensure our stay was perfect in every way. Hope to be back - soon!

Mc, Malmesbury

B&Bs do not get better than this.Good location for large area around, excellent hostess and food. Beautifully quiet even for people used to living in the countryside. Good restaurants and pubs locally as well. Visitor info best ever received at hotels or B&Bs. A peach. Sawdays are always good but this is in another class.

David, Dumfries

A charming place and ideal for visiting the dales. Maggie is the perfect host providing delicious breakfasts along with local knowledge and amusing stories. We will definitely stay again next time we are in Yorkshire.
