About Mary Furness Stanhow Farm, Northallerton, Yorkshire, DL7 0TJ

We live on the family run working farm. We feel that guests will enjoy this wonderful location and walk on the farm to see the sheep, and ponies, live stock vary depending on the season. They have recently carried out tree planting and preservation work and restored the duck pond on the farm to encourage wildlife, birds and animals such as foxes, Mallard and Field Mice.

The verges are full of wild flowers and the drive is planted with spring flowers.

Mary is a keen gardener and will be delighted to help with any queries about the farm and the many interesting things to do in this wonderful part of Yorkshire. We are lucky to live near the local towns, where we do all our shopping, we also enjoy the local theatre and cinema - time permitting I love walking on the farm and lanes.

We may be able to welcome a well behaved dog, please ask and there may be an extra charge.

Owner's Response: Our visitors had a fabulous time, with so many interesting places to visit on the Moors and Dales and historic Kiplin Hall nearby visited by Tony Robinson on his walk; our guest loved the convenience of shopping in Northallerton and enjoyed very good food & hospitality. Why not booked in advance of your stay the best restaurants in the world at Oldstead. The visit was for 2 weeks, they left saying would be back next year & will recommend this peaceful individual bungalow to their friends. Sun shine in the window at breakfast time and sun in the window of the sitting room in the evening - magnificent views with privacy and the host family living on the farm. Why not visit our website for more. google www.yorkshire

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to meet 3 generations of the family. They enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the farm, the children loved romping about in the garden, feeding carrots to the horses and then family walks seeing the spring flowers. Much excitement when the ewes and tiny lambs arrived. The WIFI proved a get asset, also the green tourism file and files of all the local attractions. A perfect area for cycling, the bicycles were safely stores in the lockable garage. Grandpa said there is so much to do and not enough time to do all the interesting things in the area. They found time to cycles to Richmond, eight miles away - they enjoyed the beautiful views from the sitting room windows and the lovely sunsets - you can also see the sunrises if you are about early enough!

Lovely location - warm welcome.

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us almost equidistant between the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors. Great for scenic visits and long or short walks. Only a short drive to the nearest town for shops and petrol - Northallerton, an attractive market town with good shops and restaurants/cafes.

The property was comfortable, clean, well maintained - everything was easy to use. The kitchen was very well equipped and there were table and chairs outside which we used in the amazing weather we had. There were fresh flowers on our arrival.

The bungalow is on a lovely farm which has many footpaths to explore for short walks. It is in fact on the coast to coast path.

The owners were very welcoming and helpful.

Owner's Response: Greatly enjoyed by 3 generations of the family. The sun is shining, the corn turning golden and the berries ripening. the birds are singing, this year we have masses of swallows - I have seen an owl carrying a mouse! also a pair of wrens near the house. The cock pheasant is protecting his hen, who will have chicks in the long grass. The lambs look very well & the cows with their calves. Kiplin Hall has some fun activities including the Canterbury Tales, Thorpe Perrow has an Abba concert. Thirsk has several race meeting in the near future. James Herriots home town - the museum is the veterinary surgery where he practiced as a vet. Losts of activities are planned at the Sutton Bank visitors centre. The local agricultural shows take place in June, July, August and September all great fun. August is Scorton Feast with 5 days of fun, a gymkhana, trotting, village cricket, the brass band on the village green, sports, fancy dress and the flower and produce tent. Do not forget the autumn colours, the wonderful skies, sunsets and sun rises. See the heather on your drives over the moor.
