Burton Agnes Hall - Built between 1598 and 1610 by Sir Henry Griffith, Burton Agnes Hall is an Elizabethan stately home that has seen fifteen generations fill the Hall with treasures, from magnificent carvings commissioned when the Hall was built to French impressionist paintings, contemporary furniture, tapestries and other modern artwork in recent years.

Whether you just want a relaxing day looking around the gardens enjoying lunch in the Terrace Café or want to look at fine examples of art and architecture there is something for everyone at Sledmere. RSPB Bempton Cliffs - easily the best place in England to see, hear and smell seabirds! More than 200,000 birds (from April to August) make the cliffs seem alive - with adults bringing food to their nests, or young chicks making their first faltering flights. With huge numbers to watch, beginners can easily learn the difference between gannets, guillemots, razorbills, kittiwakes and fulmars. The easily recognisable puffins (here between April and July) are always a delight. Sewerby Hall - situated 2 miles north of the seaside resort of Bridlington, on the East Yorkshire coast. The grade I listed country house is set in 50 acres of landscaped gardens in a cliff top location on the outskirts of Sewerby village. As well as the Hall, there are gardens, a small zoo and other attractions. Get directions.

About Liz sellers
I am an outdoorsy active mummy with a passion for brilliant travel experiences which last a lifetime. I hope that my recent giving up of Geoggers teaching to run my own lovely holiday home is a good move as I wish to please others and make them realize East Yorkshire is very much a hidden gem for seaside ness and fun and treasured days out. I live on a farm in a fab location and have beautiful Hockney views out of my bedroom window which I appreciate every time I look outside and think everyone deserves. I love sport and I consider myself a rugby supporter thanks to my lovely partner and Tobes my added on son.I love a good park run on a Saturday morning and have a great run on our doorstep although I very much hate it when trotting along myself. Look forward to meeting you!
Liz sellers purchased this Farmhouse in 1949
Why Liz sellers chose Driffield
We are located on a farm the outskirts of a small rural traditional Yorkshire village which the artist David Hockney has painted for years because of its natural rural beauty. To be honest I can't put into words how magical this place is with lots to suit every walk of life. The beautiful Foremans House was facing dereliction yet received the TLC it deserves. We are 4 miles drive or a 15 minute easy bike ride to the sandy which disappears to the horizon, RSPB Bemton Cliffs the home of thousands of sea bird is a spectacular sight with rock pools, caves and tranquil coves very close too.The historical houses of Burton Agnes and Sledmere are on our doorstep. So whether it is a log burner to snuggle by or days of outdoor adventure I think we can deliver it in buckets and spades.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
We have a fantastic garden and patio which is surrounded by open countryside and views of Hockney's Woldgate Woods, fab outdoor furniture and BBQ. The house is truly top notch luxury with underfloor heating, Aga electric range and beautiful wood burner in the living room.The kitchen is a colossal homage to the farmhouse kitchen and is a heart of this home and seats 12.We have an entertainment snug suitable for children and very much welcome children on your holiday.My childhood memories are based here and I this is a beautiful adventure for little people.The bathrooms are both traditional yet modern and offer a bit of an oasis of pleasure.

Spacious, comfortable and well equipped
Seven adults, family, had a great time here. Very comfy place with room for everyone to do as they pleased. Enjoyed a barbecue in spacious garden with good views. Village of Rudstone interesting plus other previously unknown historical sights. Wolds are beautiful and the Coast is close by. All helped by glorious weather. Cheery welcome and a wave goodbye from Liz plus excellent cake.
Great for family get togethers
This was our second stay in Foreman's House and it was every bit as good as before. All you could need is provided, including games and books. We even discovered Netflix this time. There is enough space so that you are not all on top of one another and two lounges means that there is for the children to play in and another if adults want to have a bit of peace and quiet. We are hoping to return next year.
This is a superb property, even better than the photos indicate. All the furniture, towels and equipment were of very high quality.There is ample room for a large party. We were a family group of 8 adults, 4 and a young baby. Two of the bedrooms were large enough for a child to sleep on a ready bed which we took with us, so they could stay in with their parents.
Everything you could think of was provided and there were more than enough glasses. crockery and cutlery for everyone to use. Plastic plates and cups were also provided for use by the children or in the garden. The dishwasher proved very useful.
The situation of the house is ideal for driving to the beach and parking in the park and ride. It is also not far from the supermarkets, Aldi,and Morrisons. The whole family felt very comfortable and would like to return.
Many thanks for the lovely comments- it makes everything so worthwhile when we have made people happy. You are more than welcome to return, just get in touch. Enjoy the rest of the summer and hope to see you again in the future.
A special home from home
You couldn't ask for more from a rental property. We were a group of 10 family members ranging in age from 17-82 years of age. Everyone was catered for, from the Wi-Fi to the downstairs walk in shower.
Everything was as described in the holiday listing. Warm, comfortable (what beds!) clean and excellent quality throughout.
Nothing seemed too much trouble for the owners, they were a pleasure to deal with.
I wouldn't hesitate to give this property the highest recommendation.
We hope to return.
Whilst your there try and get to visit Burton Agnes Hall, it was a superb outing.. Also RSPB Bempton Cliffs, we were there in time to see puffins!
Very Special Birthday Celebrations
Various family members travelled from all over the UK to gather together to celebrate Dad's / Grandad's / Great Grandad's 100th Birthday. The occasion was made even more special by choosing Foreman's House as our base. It is an amazing place to stay, we had everything we needed and more. We were given a very warm welcome and presented with a basket containing local products. The kitchen is enormous and was the central meeting place throughout our stay. Catering for 10 people was not the chore it could have been as the cooker is to die for and the kitchen was so well equipped with everything we needed. There is also a barbeque very conveniently situated outside the kitchen. There are plenty of comfy sofas in the two lounges and the bedrooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable.
The house is spotlessly clean throughout and all the renovations are of a very high standard.
The views from all the windows are fantastic - we woke up the first morning to see half a dozen rabbits chasing each other in the field and several very inquisitive cows looking over the fence to get a closer look at us! Our grandson of 15 months was ecstatic to meet them all and each and every one of them was given a special wave on our last morning.
I wholeheartedly recommend Foreman's House - it is a fantastic place - absolutely perfect - we could have stayed forever....
We are a family group aged 1 year to 90 years and the house was perfect for all of us.The house has been beautifully renovated to a very high standard. But it is also sooo comfortable and inviting.There is everything there that you could need (lots of crockery , cutlery and utensils) and extras you wouldn't expect such as hairdryers in every room.There was also a very nice welcome pack, milk and a lovely cake, which we all enjoyed. We stayed for Christmas and the owners put up a tree and decorations for us which were lovely. It was great to have space to move around and a lovely bathroom for each family. Thank you to Liz, June and all the Sellers family we had a lovely time and didn't want to leave.
Special interest holidays:
Walking or cycling though the Yorkshire Wolds are both highly recommend from this location and of course beach holidays are easy too.
We have the fantastic hidden secret of the Yorkshire Coast on our doorstep. The sandy beach of Bridlington is 6miles away, rock pools of Flamborough are 6miles away,birds of Bempton Cliffs are also 6miles away. You may like a trip to Filey, Scarborough, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay or beyond. We really are spoilt for choice so if you're a beach lover, this is the place for you!
A car is very much needed here as are we are in a peaceful secluded location yet near to the town and beach however public transport is very limited
We have a lovely village 2miles away Rudston,but the closest with a pub is 4miles,Kilham or Carnaby. We are only 4miles to Bridlington town also. Although you feel mies away from anywhere actually you're only a 5min drive from the beach and amenities of the town. We have lots of fantastic and varied things to do within a 15 min drive. If you fancy more exploring, Whitby ,Scarborough, Beverley,York and Hull are slightly further afield yet well worth the trip.
Walking, cycling, bird spotting, historical and cultural trips, cookery, Hockney. All these interests and more can be followed from Foremans House. We can always try to help you plan your holiday or give you advice if you require it.
