Main Street, York, North Yorkshire YO62 6TF

We stayed in the converted barn. The rooms were adequate but not really suitable
for a protracted stay. Comfortable but not luxurious. The breakfast was fantastic with good quality ingredients. I would recommend it for a weekend away.
They serve a range of great Ales as well as great food. So you have everything you need for a weekend getaway.
High Blakey, York, North Yorkshire YO62 7LQ
The Lion Inn on remote Blakey Ridge is a 16th Century freehouse owned and run by the Crossland family since 1980. Located at the highest point of the North York Moors National Park, it stands at an elevation of 1,325 feet offering breathtaking views over the valleys of Rosedale and Farndale.
Open fires burn all day and evening in the ancient fireplaces. The original low beamed ceilings add to the friendly atmosphere of the Inn.
Ideal for that relaxing country break, well away from the hassles of modern life - The Lion Inn is recommended by "The Good Pub Guide", "The Good Beer Guide", "The Good Britain Guide", "AA's Best Pubs & Inns", nominated for "Real Fire Pub of the Year" and awarded "Theakston Acclaimed Purveyor" in recognition of the fine quality of its Old Peculier beer.
The food portions are typical hearty Yorkshire and come with a Yorkshire price tag. So book a table here only if you are hungry and want real good quality food and very reasonable prices. I could only manage a main course and chose Steak & Ale pie. (£11.25) I struggled to finish it, but loving a challenge battled on to the last forkfull.
Doncaster Rd, Wakefield, West Yorkshire WF4 1QE
Formerly the site of a monastery, Nostell Priory is an 18th-century treasure house situated just 5 miles from the centre of Wakefield.
It's an oasis of calm, with exquisite interiors by James Paine and Robert Adam, furniture by Chippendale, a collection of paintings and a very special library. Inside the house, there is one of only three ever made John Harrison (longitude) longcase clock and a unique 18th-century dolls' house which is simply amazing, not only by its grandeur but the fact that it remains intact after all of this time of being played with.
Grantham, Lincolnshire NG32 2LS
The tranquil riverside woodland next to a bustling adventure playground makes this a perfect place for the whole family. You can even rest your legs by taking the mini railway.
Of course there is also the obligatory restaurant in this case it's the Stables restaurant and ride cafe, there is also the usual gift shop as well as a secondhand bookshop.
27 Tadcaster Road, Dringhouses, York, North Yorkshire YO24 1GG
Beautifully tended 4 acres of Garden, which is an oasis of calm and tranquillity so close to York. The Gardens make an ideal place take a stroll and relax a peaceful oasis with herbaceous borders, winding pathways. rockeries, ponds and lush green lawns. An ideal and safe place to take children, have a picnic, read a book or just spend time out.
You can explore seven rooms of this Arts and Crafts house to discover the story of the Terry family, life in the chocolate factory and soak up the atmosphere of York's 1930s heydays. Unlike many of the National Trust properties, the furnishings are not original (as that was bequeathed and is now in The Mansion House in York) but "of the period" and so can be sat upon and touched. Photograph albums can be thumbed through and board games played. It really is a very pleasant way to pass the day and as is usual there is also a cafe to have a snack.
12-13 Tower Street, York, North Yorkshire YO1 9SA
I found that the portions was way too small and was ready to eat a further main course after finishing my starter and first main course. I also found the bar price too be far too high £4.50/5.00 for a 330ml bottle of beer. £6.75 for a glass of wine.
This is not a place for a social evening with your partner more of a place to impress a would be lover that you can afford to eat and drink there. (Humour) but you get the point.
Derwent Road, Malton, North Yorkshire YO17 6YB
I took my wife's car in first to seek advice and was told the tyres were still Okay and to continue to use them until closer to the winter weather setting in and then to have two new front tyres fitted. I did just that and was very happy with the price and the service.
I then at the same time asked for a price of four winter tyres for my own car and the price quoted was in line with what I had seen during my research. These tyres are fairly uncommon due to the size and reasonably costly. Despite this, without any knowledge of me whatsoever they ordered these tyres and i said that I would return for them fitted the day following there expected delivery date. I was a little surprised that they didn't want a deposit or contact details. So without any fuss or formalities my tyres were ordered, delivered and fitted as arranged. A great service!
My only, very minor gripe is that a dust cover is missing off of one wheel. I know that I could go back however as they only cost about a £1 each I will simply order another set off of Ebay and have three spares.
I will definitely be returning to this tyre centre for all my future needs
24 Beaconsfield Road, St. Albans, Hertfordshire AL1 3RB
The accommodation is well appointed and very clean. It has all that you would expect or need from a B & B.
Off street parking is available. Breakfast consists of Cereals, toast. fruit etc. etc. and the Full English is available if pre ordered.
The hostess is nice, helpful and friendly.
I have no hesitation in recommending this establishment to all that appreciate good quality.

It has to be said the choice of venue could not have been better. It is a welcoming and friendly family affair. Indeed the current owner actually built the accommodation and associated buildings himself. My room was spacious and well appointed it was clean and functional. TV, tea making paraphernalia including biscuits as well as complimentary shower gel etc.
The bed was divine and a great nights kip was had. I was even given a early morning knock as I had forgotten my alarm clock. You would have to be the type of person that wants to be disappointed to find any faults with the room or its facilities.
They also have a room with a bar and a large screen TV.
Breakfast, well.......all that I can assume is that Mr Mears must be a former lorry driver (said in the nicest way) as it was plentiful and delicious. Cereals, FULL English, with all the usual suspects bacon, sausage. hash browns, tomatoes etc etc. toast and jams the lot. Fruit juice, tea or coffee and it appeared to me as though you could drink as much as you wanted and eat toast till it came out of your ears.
All in all the B & B is the tops. I have to say at £50 for a double room, this is fantastic value and the host and hostess are really very nice a nothing too much trouble. We kept Mrs Mears up until 0140hrs!! and it was not a problem.
