We previously used the west wing of the main farmhouse to accommodate bed and breakfast guests but now offer the west wing for self catering. Guests have their own entrance door. Farmhouse Cottage is locked off to be completely separate to the owners wing of the farmhouse and has sound proofing measures in place for guests, and our own privacy. 

We recently completely refurbished the huge lounge to include a new luxury kitchen at one end complete with intergral Bosch appliances and includes a fridge/freezer, fan oven, microwave/combi oven and dishwasher. There is a large oak dining table with leather chairs which extends to easily accommodate 8 people when required. Comfy leather sofas are provided to relax on and enjoy the wonderful views from the windows. The bedrooms all have en suite shower and toilet facilities. As the farmhouse is over 350 years old some of the en suites are compact but well fitted and very clean. The whole cottage gives guests a very peaceful place to stay, relax and unwind. All bedrooms have flat screen televisions and hair dryers. The lounge has flat screen HD television & recorder DVD player.

The cottage enjoys the use of a south facing patio with outside seating and beautiful views of the farms orchard, the Vale of Pickering and the distant hills. Free wi fi in all rooms.
