About Mrs Jane Wheldon

Hello, my name is Jane , along with my husband Kevin we run Granary-cottage & The Stables cottage. We bought the granary some 12 years ago & converted it into our family home ,now all our children are grown up & moved on to pastures new. Our latest project over the winter (2012) we have converted part of our out buildings to form The Stables cottage, with two bedrooms both En-suite. We enjoy meeting people & take great satisfaction in helping our guests make their holiday special. Kevin has a keen interest in Ryeland sheep and loves to show children our pet lambs & encourages those who would like to feed them. I also run a millinery business (hats to those not in the know !) so summer is a busy time for me.


Mrs Jane Wheldon purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Mrs Jane Wheldon chose Scarborough

The bull pens were included in our initial purchase of the granary. We have enjoyed converting, firstly the Granary, then Granary cottage. Now the last piece of the jigsaw is complete, following conversion of the Bull pens to the luxurious "The Stables cottage". Please visit our web site for more information

What makes this cottage unique

THE STABLES COTTAGE is a new conversion which gives the added luxury of two en-suite bathrooms ideal for 2 couples family & Friends. we can let both our cottages together to larger family groups, to sleep up to 9 plus a travel cot.

Our other cottage GRANARY COTTAGE is all ground floor ideal for those with difficulty going up stairs . Granary ( only) accepts 1 dog , we are child friendly in both our cottages & have a large lawn for children to play on. The views from either cottage are stunning both have private patios and parking.

Perfect for relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

Driving up the long driveway towards the farm, surrounded by fields with the only sound being the lambs, we felt instantly relaxed. We were welcomed by Jane who was full of useful knowledge about the surrounding area and was able to suggest the best places to visit. Both Jane and Kevin were extremely helpful, suggesting places that my boyfriend could go fly-fishing; they even printed us a list of different lakes.

The cottage was beautiful. It was extremely clean and had everything you could need. The fantastic views from the sitting room window had us transfixed every evening after a long day exploring the moors.

We absolutely loved Helmsley, visiting a number of times during the week. It has some lovely little shops and the best Ginger ice cream we have have ever tried! Further to this, Hutton-le-Hole is also beautiful and Castle Howard is a wonderful day out. We had lunch at the Star Inn is Harome and if you are looking for something a little more special, you will love it! We had a Venison burger and a Smoked Salmon and Prawn Sandwich, both £10 each plus chips, but well worth it! York was easy to get to and the Park-and-Ride provided and cheap and easy way to get in to the city centre.

We would throughly recommend visiting Granary Cottage. Having never been to Yorkshire before, we fell in love with the Countryside and the Moors. It is the most magical and beautiful place and we can't wait to visit again. Granary Cottage provides a home away from home, close to various attractions and lovely little towns and only 30 miles from York.

Thank you Jane and Kevin. We hope to be visit again soon and maybe try out Stable Cottage next time!

A Secret Haven

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Stable cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our week at this excellent location. This lovely property was very clean, well equipped and comfortable. It is set in the wonderful Yorkshire countryside without the traffic and hustle and bustle of everyday life. Fantastic views and wonderful birdsong greeted us each morning. There is plenty to do in the vicinity and the accommodation offered easy access to the Moors and local attractions. There are also many good restaurants to choose from if you do not want to cook for yourself. The owners, Jane and Kevin are very helpful and are very nice people. We will hopefully return one day.

Wonderful break at Granary Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Granary Cottage. We have two young children and the fact the cottage has no stairs was perfect for us. The Cottage is set in beautifully manicured gardens and is so peaceful! It was fantastic to be able to look out of the window and see the fields and sheep- Our son was particularly keen to watch the sheep at every waking minute and Kevin was kind enough to let us watch the new baby lambs being fed.

The cottage is ideally located to visit many of the local seaside towns and there are lots of great pubs and restaurants nearby. Both Kevin and Jane were perfect hosts and we would love to visit again soon. I think anyone wanting to visit North Yorkshire would be hard pushed to find a better place to stay.
