Standing amidst wonderful countryside close to the North Yorkshire Moors, Little Edstone Farm is a magnificent location for a combined sea and country holiday. Secluded and tranquil, guests are free to explore the woodland and landscaped grounds, which are home to a variety of wildlife - including wild deer, owls, hares, etc. These properties (refs IKC, IKE, IKG and IYX) are set on a small traditional organic farm, and guests are welcome to participate in farming activities when available or to simply appreciate the workings of an organic farm and wildlife conservation.
Guests are welcome to purchase the organic products grown here directly from the friendly owners. Some of the properties are environmentally friendly, heated by a unique wood-burning/solar heating system, and many of the practices throughout the farm and properties use natural resources for their day-to-day running. An indoor heated swimming pool, sauna and hard tennis court shared between the properties, a small gym, a shared pool table, as well as a children’s play area complete the facilities on offer for these unique and comfortable holiday homes. The beautiful North Yorkshire Moors are a delight to explore either on foot or by car, or alternatively, the steam railway runs along stunning scenery through many unspoilt villages including Goathland (‘Aidensfield’ in the television series Heartbeat). The coast is easily accessible, 45 minutes away, and the popular seaside resorts of Scarborough and Whitby are delights not to be missed. The quaint cobbled streets of Robin Hood’s Bay, once a favourite haunt with smugglers, will keep children and adults entertained for hours with its shoreline full of strange and colourful pebbles. Castle Howard is within easy driving distance, and Flamingo Land (a popular theme park and zoo) is well worth the visit. The market town of Helmsley is 6 miles distant and has shops and inns as well as pretty walled gardens. Many NT properties can be found within a 15 mile radius, including Nunnington Hall, Byland Abbey and Duncomb Park, to name but a few. The ancient city of York is but a 45-minute drive (27 miles) and are within a 5-minute drive to the Yorkshire Moors. Excellent walking can be found from the doorstep. All the cottages combine country living, yet are close enough to the coast to keep any visitor happy, whatever type of holiday they may be looking for. Little Edstone Farm is the perfect place in which to relax and unwind - whatever time of year. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
