"The nicest holiday cottage we've stayed in"
Standfield Hall Cottage is a cosy, detached, two bedroom holiday cottage on an organic farm within beautiful Yorkshire scenery (it's "fantastic"*).
A farm holiday cottage in Pickering (like ours) is your perfect yorkshire holiday cottage at any time of the year (we'll set the log burner in the lounge for when you arrive if it's cold, or in the summer there's loads of outside space). Easy to reach, central farm cottages for all the best that Yorkshire offers, giving you a base from which to explore:
- the beautiful Yorkshire countryside (walking and cycling)
- fabulous Scarborough, Whitby and Filey seaside
- attractions such as Castle Howard
- close to York
- local shops (including (formerly) our organic food shop) and galleries and
- excellent places to eat
Many (honestly, we're flattered) write that this is the nicest holiday cottage they've stayed in and that a week isn't long enough. If you're just searching for self catering holiday cottages, Yorkshire offers so much to do you won't want to go home. Our farm cottage is the perfect romantic getaway break for two people, whether it's a winter log-fire escape or summer in the garden, and it's a fabulous family break with plenty of room for the kids to run around. There's lots to do, but it's also exceptionally nice to just do nothing and escape.
Country cottages in Yorkshire make very special memories.
What a fantastic Christmas, hosts Mike and Pam the best, turkey, veg, fruit, bread was fantastic, what can we say, the best holiday ever. Peace and quiet is just what we needed. Thank you so very much.

(* The vast majority of the words on this website started out as guest comments in our guestbook. So if you read "it's a fantastic yorkshire holiday cottage", that's not just us writing nice things about ourselves .. a real holidaymaker just like you has written those words in our guestbook. We chose to build the website from those comments so it would more accurately reflect the experience of holidaying in our farm & country cottages (there are actually two but the other one is separate and is being refurbished at the moment).)
