The Grange is stone walled and built around a courtyard. It is set, with in ten acres of well-kept gardens and fields, on the edge of the moors in the historic village of Lastingham; a peaceful backwater in the heart of the National Park, where the only sound is the sound of morning birdsong. Here the road peters out and becomes a bridle path across the moors to Rosedale and afar.
One Finds a Restful, Friendly atmosphere here at the Grange, which has a reputation second to none, for good food and personal, courteous service. The twelve bedrooms have been tastefully furnished and decorated; all have their own private bathroom.
There is a spacious, comfortable lounge with an open fire and there is a beautiful dining room; both look on to the terrace and rose garden beyond.
The Grange is fully licensed for residents and non residents and has an extensive wine list and choice of drinks, though it has no bar.
Lastingham Grange has been highly recommended by many internationally recognised hotel guides, “Signpost” and Ashley Courtenay’s “Let’s Halt Awhile” being but two. Harold Champion, writing in the Financial Times about North Yorkshire, said of the Grange “the best hotel of the whole tour, an ideal spot to spend the a week-end in utter peace and enjoying fine country fare”
