... name for Lastingham was Lęstingau.Lęstingau first appears in history when King Ethelwald of Deira (651-c.655)founded a monastery for his own burial. Bede attributes the initiative to Ethelwald'schaplain Caelin, a brother of Cedd, Chad and Cynibil. Bede records that Ceddand Cynibil consecrated the site, and that Cynibil built it of wood. Cedd ruled the monastery as the first abbot until his death, combining ...

Peter had a guided walk map and even though the article was 10 years old, we found it was accurate. Only at the end did we need to make a slight adjustment to get back to the car. The scenery, as always, was beautiful. This time of year the morrland is monotone and nothing is ...
... with a part-time mundane job. After reading random internet blogs about travelling, one of their comments really stuck in my head - "I'd rather be living in exciting hell, than boring paradise". Since graduating, I have just fallen back into the living-at-home routine, and don't get me wrong because it is lovely, and I have the most A-M-A-Z-I-N-G family and friends surrounding and supporting me here. But it'd be too easy to just drift along in life, and I feel that I ...

You never know, I could end up having a good old McDonald's breakfast every day.) All in all I feel like I am ready and excited to go and make the most of the experience, and also challenge myself with unfamiliar situations.

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.
