Home Stays

for Dogs with or without their owners!


Announcement - December 2020

We would like to thank all our visitors during this year for their thoughtfulness and common sense during a difficult time!

Unfortunately we have to announce that, from Jan 2021, we will no longer be able to accept Horses Welcome bookings so the 'Whinnies' part of Wags and Whinnies will cease for the foreseeable future, due to our house move.  Although we shall still be in the area of Galphay Lane and its beautiful countryside, unfortunately we won't have the same facilities for visitors with horses.  We have enjoyed all the equine characters and their owners we've met!

Subject to Harrogate Borough Council approval at the new property we hope to still operate 'Wags' and accept dogs for Home Boarding.

Good wishes to all for a Healthy, Happy and Safe 2021.
Gill and Dave Mason

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. 


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.
