  • "Very comfortable stay at this property."

    Barry & Debbie The owners are two of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet. If you would like peace, quiet and a relaxing holiday, this is the place to stay. Very clean, comfortable, roomy and in a beautiful location. Wildlife all around you. 10 mins drive in to York, Harrogate 25 mins. Could not fault anything about The Barn at Orchard Farm. Thank you to Barry & Debbie for a most glorious week away.

  • "We have so enjoyed our stay, the cottage is wonderful."

    The furnishings and all the thoughtful additions have been amazing. The owners on site have been wonderful, so friendly. This is the best holiday cottage we have ever hired!! It is in a great location being so closed to York but further enough out to be super peaceful. Watching the owners horses and meeting them has also been so lovely. I would thoroughly recommend this property. I very rarely post reviews but feel that I need to on this occasion.

    The Barn was absolutely beautiful. Total peace and quiet. Debbie and Barry were the perfect hosts, they made us feel like old friends. The only downside to the break, was having to pack up and so goodbye and go home. We will definitely be returning when we get the chance. Thank you so much Debbie and Barry.

About the location


Leeds 25 miles;

The city of York needs no recommendation, for it teems with interest for the holidaymaker: the Minster, its medieval walls, boat trips on the River Ouse, York Races, museums(including the famous National Railway Museum and the Castle Museum), and the internationally-renowned Jorvik Viking Centre and its "time trip" experience. Summer and winter, there is something to fascinate the whole family. Explore York’s quaint streets and hidden corners, or take an excursion further afield to the Dales, Moors or the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey. Yorkshire is rich in stately homes, with Harewood House and Castle Howard just two of several within an hour’s drive. A cycling city boasting two theatres, character pubs and great shopping, York has it all.
