About Mary Furness Stanhow Farm, Northallerton, Yorkshire, DL7 0TJ
We live on the family run working farm. We feel that guests will enjoy this wonderful location and walk on the farm to see the sheep, and ponies, live stock vary depending on the season. They have recently carried out tree planting and preservation work and restored the duck pond on the farm to encourage wildlife, birds and animals such as foxes, Mallard and Field Mice. The verges are full of wild flowers and the drive is planted with spring flowers. Mary is a keen gardener and will be delighted to help with any queries about the farm and the many interesting things to do in this wonderful part of Yorkshire. We are lucky to live near the local towns, where we do all our shopping, we also enjoy the local theatre and cinema - time permitting I love walking on the farm and lanes. We may be able to welcome a well behaved dog, please ask and there may be an extra charge.
