Switching off and being still in nature are the elements our guests enjoy the most.

Set in stunning gardens, you will fall in love and feel at home as soon as you arrive at Old Forge York. We provide luxury linen, towels and organic toiletries, a simple breakfast hamper of your choice and a tea-time treat for your arrival. All produce is sourced from within a 25 mile radius. We provide everything you need, so just pack your slippers and favourite tipple.

Eight miles from York station, Old Forge York is ideally situated for exploring the Yorkshire Moors, Dales and coast. Set in a peaceful rural location, Old Forge York provides a tranquil retreat at the end of the day. Our mission is to make you smile by adding personal touches and introducing you to unique local experiences, food and drink. Our honesty shop in the barn has simple suppers and vegetables from our allotment. Our "25 mile map" for guests contains details of the very best local producers, along with “off the beaten track” places to visit. Local chefs offer "dine at home" menus and our wine merchant can suggest suitable pairings and deliver in advance of your arrival... .

With only two holiday cottages on site, Old Forge York offers exclusive accommodation for up to seven guests. Dogs and children always receive a warm welcome. Both holiday cottages have their own secure and private garden as well as access to 1.5 acres of beautiful country house gardens attached to the Old Forge.

We welcome guests to enjoy lunch at the woodland fire pit, play badminton or build dens and play on the rope swings. Kids of all ages can bounce on the trampoline or have a competition on the monkey bars. Make sure you take time to meet our hens (The Barbaras) and collect fresh eggs, visit the vegetable patch and help yourself to something for supper. With so much to enjoy on site, you may decide to spend a few days just relaxing here. If you do want to explore on foot there are plenty of woodland and bridle path walks. For a more adventurous day you can walk to our local farm shop and café two and a half miles away.

We take great pride in the service we provide and would be delighted to answer any questions you have before booking. Just email or telephone 07926381022 or live chat. We go the extra mile to make your stay personal and special, whatever the occasion, let us spoil you and welcome you to our holiday homes.

Come and stay for a long relaxing holiday or escape for a refreshing short break. The choice is yours with a minimum stay of just two nights up until April 2021. We have flexible arrival and check out dates so you can make the most of your holiday time. There are no additional charges for items such as logs and baby equipment. We really do have everything you could wish for from an idyllic rural retreat.


Both The Garden Shed and Next Door have central heating and log burners in the living rooms, televisions in the lounge and bedrooms, irons and ironing boards, hairdryers, fridges and freezers, dishwashers and microwaves. A travel cot, highchair and children's tent bed are available on request. All guests have access to a washing machine and tumble dryer in a utility room on site. We have secure storage for bikes and other large items.

For the comfort of all our guests, no smoking is permitted in either cottage or outside in the grounds.
