Check-in anytime from 2:00pm and checkout is by 10:00am

No. All beds are made up and towels provided.  You only need to bring your food and your clothing.

We have a whole section on our website about activities on the farm and in the area.  Our main activity on the farm is our Animal feeding routine in the late afternoon. But really, we hope that you will take the opportunity to just relax and enjoy nature.

We allow dogs in all cottages except “The Farmhouse” and “The Quarters”. But please, ask us for our dog policy before bringing your dog.  There are restrictions and there is a surcharge. We need to keep your dog safe as well as our farm animals.

All of our family cottages and units have port-a-cots and high chairs as standard.  We have plenty of cot bedding too, but please let us know if you need that.

Our licensing is for a maximum number of people including adults, children and infants. We have different sized accommodation units for different family sizes. We must provide a sleeping place for every person and our rates are set for that number of people.

None of our accommodation units have laundries.  But we have commercial machines in our residence so we do offer a laundry service.  There is information about this in your guest folder.

All of our cottages have a minimum 2 night stay.  On occasion we will release some cottages for 1 night stays a few days before the weekend, but a surcharge will apply.

There is a pool on the property, but it is not licensed for guest use. It is a private lap pool (and very cold). Both towns of York and Beverley have fantastic swimming pools and are only 15 mins drive from the farm.
