For a self catering Holiday Cottage in North Yorkshire, why not come and stay at Olive House, a five bedroom holiday cottage located in the picturesque valley of Farndale, near Kirkbymoorside in North Yorkshire.
Set on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, this Holiday Cottage in North Yorkshire will comfortably sleep ten people and makes an ideal base for for people seeking a break away from it all and particularly good as a base for walking. Olive House is a five bedroom traditional farmhouse in a tranquil setting. This is a pet-friendly cottage so feel free to bring your dog. Famous for its unique show of wild daffodils in the spring, Farndale is undoubtedly one of the most attractive Olive house is a 116 acre working farm lying within Farndale Nature Reserve. The River Dove winds along the bottom of the fields, some of the land being classified as a site of special scientific interest; a haven for rare wild flowers and birds. There are numerous walks and bridleways (stabling is available) and there is also trout and grayling fishing available on the lower reaches of the Dove at Sparrow Hall. Olive House has an adjacent car parking area. There is a lawned garden to the front where you can sit in the evenings and enjoy the special views together with a glass of wine looking across areas of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.
Olive house is heated by a multi-fuel stove which is the heart of the house. There is also an open fire in the living room. All fuel is included in the price. Bedding and towels are also included. There is a land line as there is no mobile phone connection. There is however free Wifi and Sky T.V.
Sparrow Hall is a mixed farm, and I run it with the help of friends and my daughter, since my husband died two years ago. I am passionately interested in sheep and cows, and all the wildlife around the farm which at the moment includes nesting barn owls and their chicks! Visitors can engage as much or as little as they want with the farm: all are welcome to enjoy the delights and downfalls of Sparrow Hall Farm!
Helen Earnshaw purchased this farmhouse in 2008
Olive House is rented from the Barratt Estate. The Barrett family own a large part of Farndale, and the properties have traditionally been leased to Tenant farmers within the Dale. My husband particularly love Farndale, and we leased the farm in 2008 with the agreement that the Farmhouse could be let for Holidays, while we farmed the land using traditional farming ways. Thus, we use the land mainly for summer grazing, half the herd of Suckler Cows move from Sparrow Hall (5 miles away, where I live) and Cheviot breeding sheep are transported back to the hillside after they have lambed downcountry.
My Husband David died in 2012: Olive House was a favourite place for him, and is very special to me.
The benefit of Olive House is its unique peaceful tranquility within a real, unspoilt as yet, working Dale. The people are fantastic, the countryside breathtakingly wonderful.
