This mornings drive home from Danby, in the North York Moors National Park

Driving back home this morning from Danby Moors Centre, I just had to take a few photo`s to share with you.  We live in such a beautiful part of the country with the Moors on our door step and the coast just a stones throw away.
I pulled up on the side of the road and was stunned at the silence.  We all lead such noisy and busy lives that sometimes we forget how quiet silence is.  It was amazing just to stand and take in the stunning view over the stone wall, down the valley.I just needed a flask of coffee to make the morning complete, never mind next time.  

Hidden Horizons Easter activities

Easter is only a week away, why not visit our stunning coast and enjoy a geology day with a difference, whilst joining in with a Hidden Horizons fossil hunting afternoon. Perfect for the whole family.

Runswick Bay fossil hunting 

Boggle Hole fossil hunting

We throughly enjoyed this day out, I did not realize that our coastline was so interesting, the Hidden Horizens guides were really knowledgeable and friendly.


We even finished the morning off with a lovely lunch at Raven Hall, Ravensworth. A must for all cake lovers. Stunning views of Robin Hoods Bay and our beautiful coastline.


2016 update

March is here already and the sun is finely shining,  the cottage has had a spring clean, getting ready for a busy spring and summer season.  Thank you to all our guests who stayed with us in 2015, we look forward to catching up again this year and meeting new guests.

Here`s a few pictures of our lovely location and busy farm life.

The view on a sunny day from the cottage patio,  can you see the sea?

On the Farm: May 2014

Spring is here and Summer's just around the corner.  We've just had our website revamped (what do you think?!) and there's been plenty going on at the farm recently.  We're shortly going to be installing our second Robotic Milking Machine and there are plenty of new calves being born at the moment.

Here are some photos from around the farm taken this month:

2014 Update

We have had an amazing 2013 with the farm and the cottage been very busy, thank you to all the guests who have stayed with us.

I know the lovely sunny days helped a lot, we were ready for a good summer and some sun shine; just been able to plan days out and be guaranteed some sun made all the difference. Whilst been able to sit out in the garden with a drink on an evening was just a special treat. Roll on this summer and fingers crossed it’s just as good or even better.

Life on the farm remains busy as always, but that`s a good thing I keep been told. Calves keep been born and the cows are milking well on the robot, Michael has put another robot on his long wish list, watch this space.

My Highland cows are slowly increasing in number; the herd is now made up of seven girls, two hopefully due to calve in the spring. We plan to show them this year at our two local agricultural shows and hopefully bring back some prizes.

Looking forward to catching up with guests who have stayed with us before and the chance to meet new ones.
