We have been awarded the Visit England 'We're Good to Go' industry standard, which demonstrates that we have taken the necessary steps to reopen in July.
Following today's announcement, that B&Bs will be among those businesses allowed to reopen from the 4th July, we are planning to start welcoming guests again from early next month. We are still waiting to see the full guidelines but will ensure that all Covid-19 measures are put in place. Initially we will only have the capacity to fulfil our existing bookings for July and August, but we have released some rooms for September and October (see our bookings calendar for availability). If any other rooms become available before September we will open them up to online booking. Thank you to all our guests who have kept their bookings with us for the last half of the summer and the autumn, Steve & Jacqui.
Here at The Grange we appreciate the upheaval that the Covid19 outbreak is causing to travel plans. Any guests who have stayed with us before will testify to our very high levels of cleanliness, which will be maintained and enhanced with regular disinfectant spraying of surfaces and handles, to ensure a safe and clean environment for our guests.
For the duration of the outbreak (until further notice) we are adopting a more flexible approach to our cancellation policy. For cancellations less than 28 days prior to the booking, where suspected or diagnosed Covid-19 has prevented travel, we will be allowing guests to transfer their booking to a later date at no extra charge.
We hope this will allow guests to book in confidence, knowing that they will not lose their deposit through no fault of their own.
Having achieved a Gold Award in the 2019 Yorkshire in Bloom Competition, Thornton-le-Dale has just received the fantastic news from the RHS that it has been selected to represent the whole of Yorkshire in the Large Village Category in the national Britain in Bloom competition for 2020. Congratulations to all the hard working volunteers in the Village Hub who keep our village looking so pretty.
We are celebrating our 100th Guest review since taking over The Grange three years ago. Thank you to all our great guests for their lovely comments (and 5 star ratings!)
Stage 3 of this year's Tour de Yorkshire cycle race passed The Grange on its way from Richmond to Scarborough. The race was again a huge success, with an estimated 2.6 million people lining the route over the 4 days. The Grange is an ideal base to try out the race cycle route or, if mountain biking is your thing, we are next to Dalby Forest. We have secure bike storage and washing facilities.
Our guests had a great weekend at the concerts in Dalby Forest - Rick Astley on Friday night and Elbow last night, when we joined them. Next year's concerts will be announced around Christmas, so book early if you would like to stay with us.
You can now check availability for The Grange and book online. We hope you like this new feature, but we also love to talk to our guests if you prefer to call us.
We now have a Dalby Forest accommodation pass that we can loan to guests. This allows free parking in Dalby Forest and also comes with a discount card for activities in the Forest.
WalkFest returns to the NY Moors for the late May bank holiday weekend (27-29 May), see details here. Rooms still available at The Grange if you fancy getting your walking boots out!
