Home Stays

for Dogs and Horses with or without their owners!


Following the latest government advice on the Coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19), we’ve made the decision to close our holiday options for Horses Welcome at Wags and Whinnies from Saturday 21 March until Thursday 30 April 2020 incl. 


We are, therefore, no longer taking bookings for the period of Friday 20 March to Thursday 30 April 2020. Anyone who has an existing booking in this period can either amend their booking for later in the year or receive repayment of their booking deposit.


Our first priority is the health and safety of our guests and family which is why we’re following the guidelines provided by Public Health England and have taken this decision.


Please contact us directly regarding dog boarding, if you are having dog-care difficulties due to the current situation.

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.
