Experience England’s history and nature ‘in a nutshell’ in the North York Moors National Park – where peace and beauty rub shoulders with a rich heritage and a warm welcome. The National Park is one of Britain’s treasured places, established in 1952 to protect 554 square miles of magical moorland, ancient woodland, secluded dales, historic sites and a stunning Jurassic Age coastline. From rolling panoramas and big skies to enchanting forests and idyllic dales, there’s a sense of peace and tranquillity here that’s hard to beat – and all just 20 miles or so north of York.

Our converted stone barn dates back to 1760 and was renovated by ourselves in 2013 with many existing features retained & decorated to a high standard. It has been a labour of love and still is. We have found our place and sometimes can't help, but just stand and stare at the views and wildlife around us.
We share our home with 2 dogs, a cat, 2 Donkeys, 11 chickens, 2 cockerels and 4 Indian Runner Ducks.
