Walk AONB countryside, visit York or Castle Howard, return to delicious meals, pretty garden and charming hosts in a quiet Yorkshire village

Read guest comments

A dollop of stylish fun in the rolling Howardian Hills (an AONB), Nick and Kathryn's redesigned village house is light, airy and filled with gorgeous things – good antiques, heaps of photographs, splashy modern art and flowers. The ground-floor twin with white cast-iron beds has its own cosy book-filled sitting room; the sunny upstairs double has views across roof tops to open countryside. Continental breakfasts are a treat, in the garden if it's fine, and Kathryn – an excellent cook – will spoil you at dinner too if you wish. Discover Castle Howard, Nunnington Hall, old market towns and great walking on the doorstep; only 20 minutes from York too.

"I am an American who frequently travels in Britain, and have done so for many years. As such, I have had occasion to stay up and down the country, in all manner of UK accommodation, but I have never been made to feel so completely at home. Kathryn and Nick (the owners) were incredibly warm and welcoming. The property itself is spectacular, the food wonderful, and the bed, shower, room, etc. all exemplary. The true “secret ingredient” of The Mount House, however, is that it has the warmest, kindest, and most gracious hosts imaginable. Truly, you find yourself among friends here."

"Beautifully decorated home with a warm welcome from Kathryn & Nick. Great bedroom with lovely views and a very comfortable bed. We thoroughly enjoyed our week-end in Yorkshire which included a delicious dinner cooked by Kathryn on our first night. There are lots of things to do nearby and we will definitely be back...."

"My husband, my sister, and I were delighted with our stay at Mount House. Kathryn and Nick were warmly welcoming and engaging hosts, making us feel like visiting friends. The house and garden are lovely, the surroundings peaceful and beautiful. Our rooms were very comfortable, and the shower room for the double room was luxurious. Our stay was too short, though, and a return visit is definitely in order."

"We had a delightful weekend here. Kathryn and Nick are warm and welcoming and so is their home. It's very pleasant to be offered a glass of wind as soon as you arrive after a long drive. We can only agree with the positive comments of other reviewers and would definitely stay here again."
March 2013
"We arrived at the Mount House after a long drive in the wet. Kathryn, Nick and the two dogs welcomed them into their home like old friends. After a drink by the fire we headed off to their recommended local which was excellent. The bedroom was comfortable and the bathroom spacious. It was a delightful stay and we will definitely go back next time we are going North. "

"Our third stay at The Mount House in the past 12 months. We can’t suggest any way in which the experience can be improved upon. Every aspect of Kathryn & Nick’s B&B is 6-star, managing to be highly professional, warmly welcoming and personal. The food is ‘historic’, and the ground floor accommodation we have stayed in - with sitting room/library - is all that one could wish for. We agree with the previous comments: staying at The Mount House is very special."
May 2012
"Our stay at the Mount House was the highlight of our Howardian Way (3 day) hike. The house was fantastic and full of very interesting antiques, paintings and photographs. Our room and en-suite bathroom were luxurious and extremely comfortable. Best of all were the hosts - Kathryn and Nick - they made us feel so welcome and were both so generous in their hospitality. Kathryn is a wonderful cook and we are looking for an excuse to go back and stay again!"

"We loved Mount House - a beautiful setting, very comfortable accomodation, and we felt really spoilt by Kathryn & Nick who were extremely warm & welcoming. Will definitely return when we revisit the area."

"We were truly pampered at The Mount House, which is now top of our list for our future visits to North Yorkshire. The guest accommodation was clean, bright, well equipped and perfect for our requirements. The dinner and breakfasts were delicious. Kathryn and Nick are delightful and attentive hosts, and we very much appreciated the friendly and informal atmosphere. Definitely a B&B to which we're keen to return."

"My husband and I had the most wonderful stay at the Mount House for 2 days in October 2010. We were made to feel extremely welcome. The attention to detail in our room was fantastic and made for a very comfortable stay. Breakfast and dinner was delicious and nothing was too much trouble for our warm and hospitable hosts. We would definately return for another stay in the future. One of the nicest Sawday houses we ever have stayed in! Alexander and Jennie Borg"
