A traditional hill sheep farm set on a south facing slope, close to the village, road, railway station and wheelchair accessible bridle paths.  Converted barn, cow byre and pigsties surround courtyard with gardens, garden furniture, BBQ and covered car parking.  

Accommodation is in four cottages, accessible to all with ground floor bedrooms and adapted bath/shower rooms, non - slip floors, under floor heating and fully equipped adapted kitchens.  A cot and high chair are available if required.  A wheel - in shower chair and toilet riser seat are also available.  Linen and towels are provided at no extra cost and all heating is included.

All cottages  have wide doors to all rooms.  In addition, there is an accessible communal lounge/ games room with open log fire for groups to get together.  There is a TV, video player, DVD player, Hifi and a selection of games, books, tapes, cd's and dvd's.

The barn: sleeps 6
The barn was part barn, part milking parlour and part granary, now it is the largest cottage with three double bedrooms (two are upstairs).  The bathroom has grab rails, vanity basin with lever taps, adapted bath with drop down side, accessible at wheelchair height, with over bath thermostatically controlled shower.  The kitchen has different height work surfaces, inset bowl with lever tap and is equipped with full size cooker with oven, fridge, freezer and microwave.

The cow byre: sleeps 4
This is the newest cottage and was the main milking parlour.  It is spacious ground floor accommodation.  The bathroom has roll -in shower (thermostatically controlled), vanity basin with lever taps, grab rails and Clos-o-mat toilet.  There is a well equipped kitchen with different height work surfaces, built in oven, hob and extractor, sink with lever tap, fridge/freezer, microwave, with dining and lounge areas.  There are two ground floor bedrooms, a double and a twin.

The pigsties: sleeps 1 to 4
The four pigsties are now two small cottages, each with a mezzanine.  The pigsties are completely accessible on the ground floor, with roll - in shower room/toilet, with grab rails, vanity basin with lever taps, downstairs double bed and twin beds on the mezzanine.  The kitchens are well equipped with different height work surfaces, with hob and basin set in, lever tap, combination microwave/grill/oven and fridge.


The farm is set in the North York Moors national park, in the Whitby district and surrounded by Heartbeat country.  The sea is just 7 miles away.

This is a working family farm which was bought by the family in 1900.   
Livestock includes sheep, pigs, free range hens and a fold of highland cattle, not forgetting Nell, our sheep dog.  We are also part of a conservation scheme with plantings of oak trees and wildflower meadows. We have discovered rare orchids and other species of wild flower since we excluded sheep from our woods.  

Throughout we have created wheelchair accessible footpaths and picnic sites in woodland, meadow and stream side areas, so that all the family can enjoy the tranquillity of the countryside. The area is rich in wildlife including deer, rabbits and other small animal, a wide variety of birds and wild flowers.  

A safe place for children to play, it is ideal for walking, riding, cycling.  It is also popular with artists and photographers.
