About Valley View Farm

Our self-catering cottages are set on a working farm in the heart of North Yorkshire. We are a family run business and have been welcoming guests to our neck of the woods for over 20 years. The business started out with a B&B in the main farmhouse many years ago, before we acquired six old-style country cottages – and so began Valley View Farm Cottages!

The Humble Holt Cottage

Holt Cottage is our stunning 3 bedroomed cottage, ideal for larger families or groups of friends. The cottage sleeps 6 people but can be connected to the neighbouring Drey Cottage to cater for up to 10 people if required.

The comfortable sitting room boasts panoramic views of the farmland and countryside beyond, whilst the showstopping galleried kitchen / dining area contains everything you could possibly need to cook up a delicious dinner for six. The cottage features 3 luxurious bedrooms: one double and two twin. At the end of a long day exploring the sights and sounds of rural Yorkshire, snuggle down in the most sumptuous bedding and wake feeling truly refreshed. All bedrooms have fully equipped ensuite bathrooms, complete with bath, shower, toilet, and basin – allowing you to freshen up in comfort and style.

The Fantastic Form Cottage

Form Cottage is our romantic retreat for 2, with a handsome king-sized bedroom and a private raised patio area.

The fabulous sitting / dining room is flooded with natural light, boasting 360-degree views over the patio and countryside beyond from the large open aspect window. Kick back and relax on the most comfortable furniture, with the open fireplace crackling in the background. Head into the kitchen and rustle up a tasty meal for two, before retreating to the king-sized bedroom for a truly restful slumber.

The Darling Drey Cottage

Drey Cottage is our bright and sunny two-bedroomed cottage, ideal for families who wish to discover all that Yorkshire has to offer. Drey can be connected to Holt Cottage to sleep up to 10 people if required.

Retreat to the large sitting area and discover comfortable furniture, with oodles of space and light. Cook your family meal in the fully-equipped kitchen or step out into your own private patio area, boasting rustic outdoor seating and fantastic BBQ facilities – ideal for a spot of alfresco dining. With 1 double and 1 twin bedroom, there’s plenty of space for all the family to settle down in the most comfortable surroundings.

The Charming Couch Cottage

Couch Cottage is our charming romantic haven for two, boasting a stunning king-sized bedroom and a lovely open plan living area.

The good-sized open plan living area incorporates a sitting / dining / kitchen area, making it an ideal space for relaxing, dining and cooking. At the end of a long day exploring North Yorkshire, sink down into the comfortable sofa and enjoy watching your favourite film on the Freeview TV with DVD player. Wine and dine your other half in the fully equipped kitchen, before cosying up in the king-sized bedroom with a connecting ensuite wet room.

The Gorgeous Granary Cottage

Granary Cottage is our fabulous 3-bedroom cottage for 6, with generously sized open spaces for rest and relaxation.

The large sitting room commands far-reaching views over the communal patio and Moors beyond, with access directly onto the patio. The adjoining kitchen and dining area is spectacularly spacious, containing everything you need to cook a delicious dinner for 6. The cottage consists of 3 lovely bedrooms: one king/twin, one double and one good-sized twin. All bedrooms feature fully equipped ensuite bathrooms, complete with bath, shower, toilet, and basin – allowing you to freshen up in comfort and style.

The Fabulous Formicary Cottage

Formicary Cottage is our single-storey sanctuary for two, with a large bedroom that can be made up with a king or two twin beds.

The modern open plan living area is perfect for relaxing and dining in style, opening up to the fully equipped kitchen. Rustle up a tasty dinner for two, before snuggling down on the comfortable sofa with a glass of wine (or two!) and warming up by the open fireplace. At the end of the day, retreat to the lovely king / twin room with ensuite bathroom for some much-needed rest and relaxation.

But wait … there’s more!

Want to take your faithful companion on a Yorkshire staycation? All our cottages are dog-friendly, so no need to leave your four-legged friends behind! We provide the perfect base for you and your dog to relax after a day of waggy-tailed walkies in the Yorkshire Moors.
