A Warm Welcome & Food Basket

We have a personal welcome meet and greet service, to allow you to be guided around the property and ask any questions and orientate yourself to where everything is. The owner lives on-site and is on call 7 days a week.

For each barn, a welcome basket of Yorkshire breakfast produce and homemade bread awaits you on arrival.  You choose which wine or Prosecco and Bread you prefer in your basket!

We offer a complimentary pre-arrival supermarket delivery unpacking service, allowing you to settle straight into your stay with us.  In addition, we can organise some delicious home cooked ready meals are awaiting you in your freezer.

Everything is provided for you, including an endless supply of logs and kindling for the log stoves free of charge.  All you need bring is the additional food and drink not already in your welcome basket.

I’m afraid we do not accept pets, the exception being guide dogs for the blind.  The only suitable cottage would be The Irishman’s Cottage which is level throughout.
