Good Hotel Guide Review

Birdsong fills the air around the Wood family’s ‘really lovely hotel’, which stands in large, peaceful grounds on the edge of the North York Moors. The Grange started life as a 16th-century farmhouse and was made over in the country house manner in the ’20s. Today, brothers Bertie and Tom Wood and their mother, Jane, ‘make the place’ with the warmth of their welcome. Some may find the setting old-fashioned – a grandfather clock stands in the hallway, a dark wood dresser holds a china collection, and floral bedspreads cover the beds in the ‘comfortable bedrooms’ – but fans come for the ‘outstanding service’ and staunchly traditional atmosphere, where ‘everyone immediately knows your name’. Enjoy tea on the terrace or by the fire, with scones perhaps still warm from the oven. In the evening, sit down to a nightly-changing menu of straightforward but tasty dishes: poached halibut, Pernod hollandaise, say, or fillet steak, salpicon sauce. The chefs are happy to oblige, too: when recent guests especially loved a halibut dish one night, the kitchen cheerfully repeated it the following evening. ‘Superb walking’ starts right at the door.

Guest comments

'We've been coming for over 30 years, but in recent times just for Sunday lunch. This time we stayed for 24 hours. We enjoyed a friendly welcome before heading for the moors into Storm Brian (a bit like being in a washing machine). We returned soaking wet to have our outer clothes removed to a drying room while we drank tea and ate scones. Later we were served a delicious dinner. Our room was as comfortable as ever, and the peace and quiet of the whole place enveloped us . It's like going on retreat - but with lashings of creature comforts! And the bill was less than we expected - we pointed out some small omissions - they said "Never mind - as long as you're happy." Can you beat that for personal care and service? The Wood family to runs this little hotel as a nurturing place for people to escape from ordinary life for a while. ' - Mr and Mrs Judson - October, 2017
'This is a lovely hotel. Our bedroom was quite large. D,B&B rates include tea and delicious warm scones with jam and cream. They manage a completely different dinner menu every evening. No long waits between courses. Wines reasonably priced. The garden is very attractive, and the staff are beyond praise. A model of what a country hotel should be. ' - John and Cherry Hopkins - April, 2014
'We were delighted to return. The lounge and our bedroom are well furnished and most comfortable. The food is first class with good choice. A delightful garden. But what really makes it special is the Wood family, most welcoming, hands-on, which makes all the difference. ' - Michael and Jenifer Price - May, 2013
