... are super narrow....should be fun for the riders! After settling in, we grabbed our umbrellas and Amanda took us for a small walking tour of the village. We ended up in the Fox and Goose pub, her local haunt, met some of the regulars, had a few pints and watched the Brazil v Columbia World Cup soccer match. Game completed, we made our way back to the house, picking up some take out on the way then pretty much crashed out. Tomorrow, the TDF begins and we are off to ...
After spending 2 nights in beautiful Badwell Ash, it was very different getting to seaside Scarborough. Our hotel was high up on a cliff overlooking the sea. When we got there, I knocked and knocked and knocked but nobody answered. Eventually I went down to the basement to speak to a lady through her window. She was a bit cross with me and shooed me back upstairs to ring the doorbell which I had obviously not seen earlier. ...
... the machines than what the prize was worth. Only Eryn and Isabel won, Rachel had to give up, hers was costing way over the £5 it was going to give her as a prize.
After the girls gambling we headed towards Scarborough Castle. The castle is on a cliff top overlooking the bays. Fabulous views from the castle. The Keep was built by Henry ll in the 12th century. There were ...
... north of Whitby in Runswick Bay. A beautiful little bay with steep sides and a 12% gradient road going down to the bottom to where the other half of the town was. It was really windy walking along the beach and yes, a little bit chilly also. We drove back up the hill and went to the hotel that overlooked the bay. By now it was really chilly so we opted for the dining room inside with a window seat and a glass of wine. The sea birds (still on steroids) and the ...
Slept in a bit this morning and took things a bit slower. Bruce and I went for a walk to the local shops and wandered around the beach. We took the water pumped train down to the beach, not many of these trains are still around, was quite interesting. We took it easy for the rest of the day, and then packed our bags ready for an early start the next ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hackness Grange Country House Hotel
Just returned after a two night stay which cost just £35 per person per night for dinner, bed and breakfast.
Just got back from a great weekend at Hackness Grange. We were worried at first after reading the reviews. What we wanted was a relaxing break with good food and wine and relaxing surroundings. What we wanted was what we got. The only low point was when we had to leave. Yes it was expensive, but views and surroundings like we had, come at a price. All we have to do now is to decide when to go again.
Watch for the price increase when booking!
We tried to book this hotel - we paid a deposit for a room for a two night break and received a confirmation letter giving us a price, but when they asked us for the balance the price had massively increased.
When we challenged them they claimed the original price was wrong, despite it being an agreed amount confirmed by them in writing! We asked them to hounour their original price but they refused.
The manager we spoke to was thoroughly unpleasant. In the end we cancelled the booking.
Avoid this hotel!
Nice situation, could do so much better
Hackness grange is beautifully situated, and the exterior is impressive and promising, but as you walk through the front door the institutional smell of left over lunch is all pervading. The place needs a facelift - big time. The pool is scruffy, the bedrooms on the small side, and the dining room, which looks wonderful, suffered from very erratic service at breakfast time - didn't dare try dinner (but apparently the chef was "from an agency"). The receptionist recommended the Everley, a pub about a kilometre away, as a good spot for dinner - and it was fantastic, in fact a must-know for anyone planning a stay at Hackness Grange. Overpriced, and doesn't deliver what it says on the tin.
Having stated that this was to be our 30th wedding anniversary stay on three occasions and that I wanted a special room, we ended up in a room above the car park and delivery area. Food smelled awful and service appauling. Lots of complaints from everyone. Intend to write a letter of complaint to English Rose.
The building and setting are beautiful. In a national park, wildlife and walking is great. View from the rooms spectacular you are by a lake and in a forest. Our room was bright, light and airy if a little chintzy. We were in the courtyard no.17. Rooms 3 & 4 are also excellent.
We did a round trip in Northern England with our three teenagers and Hackness Grange was the most expensive hotel of the five hotels that we visited, but by far the worst. It is run down and dirty. The cutlery on the breakfast table was stained with food left-overs and when we complained we earned a disdainful look of the waitress. The breakfast was incomplete or bowls already empty and not refilled at 8 o 'clock in the morning. The jacuzzi stated in the Best Western brochures and the hotels own website was not existing. When we refused to pay the five star price, that did not even meet a three star standard, it needed long and intense discussions (two hours) and telephones until we got a deduction.
Nice Weekend Break Hotel
Good hotel in a great location, within a 10 minute drive of Scraborough, but blisfully peaceful due to its location in the North York Moors. The hotel itself has a good feel. gorgeous buildings and beautifully kept grounds. Inside needs a slight update its looking a bit tired in parts. Staff are a bit hit and miss, ranging from extremely helpful to completely miserable!!. All in all a reasonably priced nice hotel but dont expect to be bowled over!!
One of the best
I have stayed in hotels all over Britain and the Hackness Grange is one of the best. The hotel is situated in a fine country house, with spacious accommodation in the house itself and in the adjacent converted stable buildings. The house is set in its own grounds in a very picturesque area.
The hotel is decorated to a very high, tasteful standard. The food is good and the staff are very helpful.
