The Granary & The Mistal
About Sarah Tootell
I live on site and have run the holiday cottages for nearly 8 years now. I have lived in the area all my life and studied Business and Rural Tourism at Bishop Burton Agricultural College.
Sarah Tootell purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Sarah Tootell chose Malton
There is so much to see and do. York is just 30 minutes away, and Malton 10 minutes away, while the cliffs and beaches of the Yorkshire Coast are easily reached in 45 minutes. A favourite day out is to visit Castle Howard, with its magnificent house and gardens. The Yorkshire Wolds, now becoming famous through the paintings of David Hockney, are a delight, and are right on our doorstep! This is fantastic walking country, and a footpath runs right by the property, taking you to nearby Birdsall. Other paths lead into the Wolds for spectacular views. Equally, cycling here is a delight, with quiet lanes and routes to suit every level. In the fields around the property, you will hear skylarks sing, and see buzzards soar. Deer are frequently sighted. This is a truly unspoiled corner, and it is no surprise that many of our visitors return year after year to escape and unwind. We look forward to welcoming you to the Granary and the Mistal soon!

Excellent holiday house
House is in a beautiful rural location and is very well stocked with games, books and toys. There is plenty to do. Sarah was very friendly and the property was very clean and tidy. We had a great week there!
The Granary had everything and more for our family holiday. Lovely welcome pack on arrival. Games room was spacious with plenty of games and jigsaw to do. We loved playing table tennis and pool. Bedrooms were a good size. We liked the open plan living room and kitchen. Private garden with views of the surrounding countryside. Easy access to York and surrounding areas. A perfect location if you're looking to get away from it all.
A good sized property with plenty of books, games and puzzles for quiet nights in and an attractive garden. The property was clean but dusty with cobwebs in corners.
Lovely place to stay. Comfortable and has everything you could want.
Great fun family get away
Fabulous holiday home with EVERYTHING you could possibly need. Super comfy beds and sofas, fantastic games room. Dishwasher and even washing machine and tumble dryer!
Excellent location, with a brilliant local pub 15 minutes walk away.
clean, beautiful location, very well equipped, friendly and highly accomodating owners
The house was stunning, the photos were great but they didn't do justice to just how lovely the property is. We had many family members come and stay with us over the time we rented out the property and every one of them absolutely loved it. We made lost of awesome memories together and will look back fondly at this experience.
The information provided by the property owners helped immensely. We were able to locate the property without any problems, and the suggestion to have food delivered was a great one and helped us settle in after our long journey from Australia.
We definitely plan on coming back and would like to thank the owners for their help over the time we were there. We loved it.
Thank you for your review and pleased you enjoyed your stay.
The Wolds Way and the Centenary Way are close by and we're a perfect base for walking, with several public footpaths easily accessible directly from the cottage. The market town of Malton offers plenty of holiday entertainment, including a 27 hole golf course and ample real ale pubs. The North Yorkshire Moors are 20 minutes drive, Scarborough 40 minutes, whilst the historic city of York and its major attractions is 25 minutes drive away.
