Welcome to The Granary and The Mistal
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!

Relax, Unwind, Enjoy.
Built in 1759 as a store house for a small farm with the rather lovely name of The Hermitage, the Granary now offers comfortable accommodation and true tranquility within easy walking distance of the village of Burythorpe with its popular pub. Sympathetically renovated, the Granary provides everything you need to relax and enjoy a stay in a truly beautiful corner of Yorkshire. The setting is splendid, with the wooded slopes of the Wolds rising close by, and the house manages to be both spacious and cosy, with plenty of room for large parties.
Ideal for activities and exploring
Perfect for couples or families with young children, the Mistal is a well-appointed cottage in an idyllic location near the Hermitage on the outskirts of Burythorpe.
Originally built in 1900, the Mistal housed cows for the Hermitage when it was a working farm. The farmer’s brother had a shop in Malton, and sold the milk there. In the mid-90s, the then owners of the Hermitage converted the cow shed into the attractive, brick-built cottage it is now and called it the Mistal, a dialect term for cow shed. Completely refurbished in early 2012, the Mistal offers comfortable accommodation with lots of outside space in beautiful and tranquil surrounding on the edge of the magnificent Yorkshire Wolds.
