Excellent rooms, bathrooms and lounge with a landlady who knows how to make a great cup of Yorkshire tea as a welcome. Close to many good inns, railway, but far enough in the wilds for peace and quiet.

This property is set in a lovely quiet location in the countryside but within easy reach of all the tourist attractions in and around the North Yorkshire Moors and coastal regions. The property is comfortable and well maintained and the owners provide a good welcome.

Spent a weekend based at Rain's farm in the self catering flat. Lovely and peaceful and just the right amount of attention from owner. Great base for touring York and surrounds, Castle Howard and the Wolds. Need a car. Will happily return.

A wonderful place for a total chill out holiday. But close to many places worth a visit. Always maintained to the very highest standard. Lorraine/Andy and Jean are special people who always provide a warm welcome.
