Croft Granary is a perfect base for exploring York and the surrounding areas. The house has all the facilities you need in a cosy atmosphere. More than enough room for 4. It's set in an idyllic village with easy access to the house, and parking for more than 1 car. The owners are polite and friendly, making sure you have everything you need, but leave you to enjoy your holiday in peace. It's also the most space and best facilities we've had for such a reasonable price. There's also ten-pin bowling, a cinema, crazy golf and a large supermarket in close proximity. Lovely to be surrounded by sheep and chickens, the ideal countryside experience.

A recently converted granary type home in a very good position beside the village green with easy access and private parking beside the cottage. The owners live beside the cottage and are most pleasant and helpful. Accommodation was very clean and well presented, plus had excellent heating should the weather be cold.It had all one could wish for, plus a fenced outside patio area with water feature ( safe for children) with long views to distant hills. The village is well kept and interesting with a wide range of old buildings , plus some good places to eat out and a small village shop . There are plenty of places to visit only a short drive away ; York Park and Ride is about 20 minutes drive and is an easy way to get to the centre areas of York.
The neighbour with the Steam Engines was very amicable and kindly showed me his collection of vehicles one evening which I found most interesting. We had no noise problems what so ever. We would love to return another year as one week was not enough.
Comfort and cleanliness with personal touches.

Accurate directions took us straight to our holiday accommodation.
The cottage has been recently renovated and tastefully decorated, was spotlessly clean and contained everything we needed.
Tea, coffee and milk were provided, so that we could make ourselves a hot drink on arrival.
The owners were helpful and friendly and kindly supplied us with fresh eggs throughout the week.
The location was perfect for visiting stately homes and other buildings of interest, as well as being within easy reach of the North York moors, the Yorkshire Dales and the City of York.
