Our cottages are currently closed for the month of May and June 2020. We are reviewing the situation as things change.

July bookings will be reviewed during June or as soon as  there are clear guidelines.

We have made a temporary change to our payment terms and conditions due to the Coronavirus.
Balance payments that are due 60 days before travel (which were booked direct with us) will now be due 7 days before travel. This should help with making the right decision whether to travel or not with the daily changes that are occurring.

Homeaway balance payments usually due 60 days before travel can now be put on hold until 2 weeks before travel.

Any worries about your booking, please get in touch to discuss possible alternative arrangements.

We are taking bookings for 2021 now.  Click here for 2021 Rental rates


Welcome to Granary Holidays.

Our self catering holiday cottages, The Granary (sleeps 8) and The Mistal (sleeps up to 4) are just on the edge of the quiet rural village of Burythorpe, near Malton, North Yorkshire and a 30 minute drive to the beautiful city of York.

Local attractions include Castle Howard, York Maize Maze, National Railway Museum, The National Centre for Birds of Prey at Duncombe park near Helmsley, Wolds Way Lavender, Eden Camp, Burnby Hall Gardens, and Flamingoland. We are also close to Scarborough, Whitby, Helmsley, Hutton Le Hole, Pickering and the North York Moors.

The Bay Horse Ale House in Burythorpe is open daily from 11.30 am serving real ale and food 12-2.00 pm. A very welcoming rustic, charming, cosy pub with open fires is a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive from us.

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!
