Likes:
Clean,comfortable accommodation. Good range of evening meal choices. Food was very high quantity. Most of all the staff were happy and attentive.
Dislikes:
Very small point but kitchen staff taking a break smoked at the back of our cottage. It was slightly intrusive as they were so close to the window and the smell of cigarettes entered the cottage.

"Hidden gem near York!"
We wanted a location near to York without the hassle of York parking, Durham Ox was ideal. We loved our little cottage, the room was luxurious, the bathroom was wonderful - huge bath! The actual pub is beautiful, very welcoming, menu looks mouth watering, such a shame we didn't get time to try anything. The breakfast next morning was well cooked and copious! Our only criticism was that the staff played loud music through breakfast and it was a bit noisy for early Sunday morning after heavy night Read less
Likes:
Loved being in own area with car outside room
Dislikes:
Music at breakfast, but think staff would've turned it down if we'd asked, but expect more customer consideration for the price of stay

The Durham Ox is a traditional 300-year old pub, family owned for the last 16 years. We are situated in the historic village of Crayke, North Yorkshire, with breath-taking views over the vale of York and a charming view up the hill to the medieval Church. Crayke is 25 minutes from York City Centre and in the heart of Herriot Country. The bar area has an original flag stoned floor and oak panels on the walls, as well as the bar fitted by the local woodcarver that bears his name and still takes pride of place. With several roaring fires alight in winter and an outside balcony & courtyard for summer dining the pub oozes atmosphere.

Five of the cottages are converted farm buildings. The Blue & Green Cottages offer a double room with en suite shower room, seating area, tea and coffee making facilities and H2K of Harrogate toiletries. In addition the Large Cottage, Rose is spread over two floors with two bedrooms, one super king double and one twin, en suite bathroom and separate shower, relaxed sitting room and a galley kitchen. The Lavender & Field Cottages both with super king size beds and bathrooms that have a bath and separate shower. The Studio Suite is located above the pub and offers spacious luxury accommodation with 600sq feet of space, a super king bed, en suite bathroom, sofas, flat screen television, kitchen and honesty bar. If you like the idea of being slightly more independent, yet only a stone's throw from The Durham Ox, Ivy Cottage is an ideal option for you, with 3 bedrooms it sleeps 6 guests.

For Private Parties & Dining;
Our private dining area and sitting room for parties up to sixteen offers a comfortable yet smart additional dining option.
The Ox Barn offers a fantastic venue for events up to a 100 guests. We are happy to create bespoke events in the Barn, including weddings and conference facilities.
The Durham Ox embraces the principle of good food in relaxed surroundings.
