About our Location at High Barn and Field House
We're glad to share our part of the countryside with you and hope you'll enjoy the experience of East Yorkshire- full of colour, character and those timeless rhythms of country life. We live just down the road, at Field House and we are always around at High Barn. John's family will have lived and farmed this land for almost 130 years by 2016, so it's safe to say we know it pretty well.
We're blessed by living in a lovely rural location, very close to the sea, and only a mile or two from the spectacular scenery of Flamborough Head and Bridlington's safe, sandy beaches. The Yorkshire Wolds, made famous by David Hockney's recent paintings, show the landscapes that surround us.
Holiday at High Barn or Field House and appreciate nature close at hand. There is an abundance of wildlife on our land - a rich habitat for deer, hare, skylarks, owls, partridge and chalk loving flowers and butterflies. We have recreated several natural dew ponds -one next to The Spinney in 2011 and another larger one at Field House in 2007. Others are scattered around our fields. All have been left to develop naturally and serve as watering places for local wildlife and breeding sites for frogs, toads, dragonflies, newts and ducks. The pond at Field House is particularly beautiful throughout the summer as it is covered in water lilies of every colour and size.
Wander up the road to the RSPB Bempton Reserve and you'll discover why it is famed for puffins, gannets and a myriad of seabirds. In winter, if you are lucky, you'll spot porpoises playing in the waves, whilst seals often appear at South Landing, where The Living Seas Centre, supported by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, provides a wealth of information, interactive experiences and courses. Dane's Dyke has a woodland trail and South Landing a sculpture trail -both make a pleasant evening walk
We have several farm walks for you to follow. It's entirely possible to cover about 5 miles on our land without retracing your steps - you're likely to see something unexpected if you go early in the morning or at dusk.
All our cottages, both at Field House and High Barn, have their own special character. They are individually designed, thoughtfully planned, furnished and fitted with the utmost care. The cottages offer every modern comfort coupled with the character of buildings rich in history. They are spacious and exude quality, with beautiful natural fabrics and materials. We try to think of everything to make you feel at home and we always try to respond to our guests' very helpful suggestions.
