    “The Dairy House is a lovely place ...”
    The Dairy House is a lovely place to stay. ...
    The Dairy House is a lovely place to stay. It is very spacious and comfortable. The house is spotlessly clean and very welcoming. It is set in a quiet location next to a farm, and the surrounding scenery is beautiful. It has a lovely homely feel and is very well equipped. There is a downstairs bedroom and shower room which are very handy for disabled guests. There is a friendly pub nearby which serves good food. The owner is very helpful, as is the lady who looks after the place. Nothing is too much trouble, and a lot of thought has gone into making this house a real home from home. I would highly recommend Dairy House and would definitely stay there again.

The property

A quality sympathetic conversion of an old stone farm building, resulting in an individual holiday home of great character and comfort.

With an exceptionally high standard of furnishing and equipment, this cottage, which has been given a Quality in Tourism Walkers Welcome award, is situated close to Manor Farmhouse, high on the moors in a quiet National Park village above Newtondale.

In the 19th century, the property housed a horse driven threshing machine and more recently it became a dairy and features a unique stone fireplace, along with massive timber beams, which may have come from oaks in Newtondale or from ships broken up at Whitby.

Ecologically aware, Dairy House offers spacious accommodation over two floors with three bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room, and provides a light and airy feel, whilst it also feels cosy in winter.

A livery is available, by arrangement, for those with horses, and footpaths nearby wander through wild flower pasture and beautiful woodlands.

Also enjoy a steam railway ride, which takes you up the valley and across the moors to the coast - one of the most spectacular railway journeys in Britain.

A delightful cottage offering peace and tranquillity.
