Home Stays

for Dogs and Horses with or without their owners!


Wags & Whinnies will re-open on Friday 24th July, operating under the current government COVID-19 guidance.

We have been making plans to welcome guests and their horses again.  There will be some changes to the way we organise things to implement social distancing and health and safety measures.

We would request visitors to use a common-sense approach, wash hands regularly and abide by the social distance rule in place at the time of their visit

Personalised Approach

We offer dog-friendly and cycle-friendly B&B, plus facilities for visitors bringing their own horses to our small friendly family yard. We are surrounded by stunning countryside close to Fountains Abbey, Ripon, North Yorkshire with wonderful walks, rides and routes right outside the door. 


Bed and Breakfast accommodation is provided at Galphay Woods in a beautiful annexe conversion, which has created a comfortable large double/family room with en-suite shower.
The annexe also has a fridge, TV, microwave plus tea and coffee making facilities.

Secure equipment location also available.


There are many beautiful walks and rides to explore in the area with a variety of circular off road routes on local private rideways and quiet country lanes. Woodland rides and the occasional stream will take you to the historic Fountains Abbey in one direction or moorland in the other.
Plenty of maps and advice on hand.
