Great location too (close to Thirsk, Ripon, Helmsley etc) so is a fantastic hub for exploring North Yorkshire.
Old Barn coffee shop does a great breakfast (and nice coffee!) and nearby Kilburn is well worth a visit! MH · 4th June 2017 via Facebook
very friendly staff, excellent Tea Room and Lounge. We can’t fault this place and recommend it to anyone.
Situated in a quiet little village near Thirsk and only 20 miles from Ripon or York with lots of tourist attractions
in between. This feels like home from home and we’ll be back again this year. Maybe looking to buy!! MS · 29 April 2016 via Facebook
