Mallard Grange has been home to the Johnson family since 1933. It's also a working farm and a superb small farmhouse B&B, offering a warm welcome, 5 Star accommodation, delicious breakfasts and great attention to detail. It's an ideal location in beautiful open countryside in the heart of North Yorkshire, yet within easy reach of Ripon, Harrogate, York and the Yorkshire Dales.

What makes a stay at Mallard Grange unique?

Mallard Grange farmhouse has a lot of character, style, and the odd creak and groan - not surprising for a house over 600 years old! It's a special place, well rooted in the landscape of this beautiful area and it has a lovely friendly atmosphere, helping guests feel immediately at home. It's a place to relax, unwind and breathe some fresh air, and to enjoy superb accommodation and yummy breakfasts. The farmhouse is historically linked to Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal, the UNESCO World Heritage Site just a few fields away.

Fresh flowers, locally made chocolates and a tempting refreshments tray, with fresh milk if preferred, is available to greet guests on arrival.

What can guests enjoy when staying in the Ripon area?

North Yorkshire is England's biggest county and Ripon, one of country's smallest cities, is right in the middle of it. A day exploring Nidderdale and the Yorkshire Dales, either driving, cycling or walking, is a must, and food for the soul. Mallard Grange is within walking distance of Fountains Abbey & Studley Park UNESCO World Heritage Site and there are historic houses and gardens such as Newby Hall and Ripley Castle, country shows and local craft workshops nearby. Smart shops and tea at Betty's in Harrogate are just a 20 minute drive away. Ripon Races are close, for those that fancy a flutter and llama trekking, walking, horse riding, park runs and cyclingare all easily accessed.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

Guests breakfast together around a large table in the farmhouse dining room, usually between 8.30 a.m. to 9 a.m., or ealier on request. The breakfast menu at Mallard Grange is a feast, packed with local specialities, and offering a wide choice to suit different tastes and special gluten free and vegetatrian diets. There's everything from a sizzling full monty, Whitby Kippers, smoked haddock or salmon and fresh eggs from hens roaming the farmyard, along with homemade marmalade, jam and honey from Maggie's bees. Yorkshire has a great reputation for producing good food and good beer! Ripon's a 5 minute drive away, with a very good choice of places to eat.

Excellent stay We were warmly welcomed by Maggie and had a wonderful two night stay in the shed which is super comfortable and spacious. Always nice to have fresh milk with your tea too. Maggie is a lovely hostess and the breakfast is a companionable affair meeting and chatting with fellow travellers. The food is excellent and you can choose any combination of a breakfast plus homemade jams ! A great base for exploring Ripon and Fountains abbey and the Dales. Don't miss the Hornblower at 9pm every evening in Ripon market square- a tradition da...

Just the tonic! After the first few minutes of being greeted on our arrival at Mallard Grange, it felt like we were visiting old friends. Maggie is a lovely lady and a fabulous host.

Breakfast was an absolute delight, home made and locally sourced produce, engaging conversation with all the other guests, a great start to the day. Thank you Maggie and your wonderful team for making our stay so ple...

A wonderful Yorkshire experience The experience of staying on a centuries-old working farm with 21st-century comfort made my stay at Mallard Grange one of the highlights of my trip. Maggie Johnson provides just about anything her guests could need or want so that they can focus on relaxing and enjoying the countryside. She is a wealth of information about the area, and also very funny! My en suite room was spacious beyond my expectations. At the communal breakfast table I met friendly and interesting fellow guests who return year after year. I...

Mallard Grange - a unique and authentic North Yorkshire farm B and B experience This is an example of a real working farm in the beautiful area of Ripon, North Yorkshire, very close to the heritage site of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal. The rooms are tastefully decorated in country living style; with particular attention to detail. The beds are very comfortable, en suite bathrooms modern and immaculate, with wonderful countryside views from the windows. Fresh garden flowers add a personal touch and the hostess bakes beautiful sweet treats...
