Your hosts, Karen and Adam, are passionate about sharing their knowledge of local producers and farmers with the best local food and drink. The Yorkshire Wolds has an abundance of fabulous local delicacies to taste. With many high-welfare and organic farms, producers who use sustainable methods and source from other local suppliers, you can be confident that you will be experiencing the very best food and drink this region has to offer. Karen has researched the very best within a twenty five mile radius of Old Forge York. This unique “25 mile Map” is part of your welcome hamper.

Karen and Adam take pride in providing exceptional hospitality to their guests. So that you can relax the moment you arrive, your welcome hamper includes a simple breakfast (of your choice) as well as a teatime treat. Our milkman delivers dairy six days a week (just ask Karen to order whatever you like) and newspapers can also be pre-ordered and delivered to your door step. Your choice of tea and coffee are supplied for the duration of your stay.

Visit between April and June and walk from your doorstep to the village farm for fresh asparagus. Just three miles away the well renowned Balloon Tree farm has a long season of pick your own fruit and pumpkins.

On site Karen and Adam have a small honesty shop in their barn and an allotment with vegetable patch for guests. The honesty shop onsite has homemade meals made by local chefs, fresh bread and pastries, frozen desserts and ice cream - everything you need for picnics and simple suppers. If you prefer to collect a ready-made picnic for a long day out this can be ordered from the local bakery for you to collect on your way.

For a special treat you can now order a “dine at home” experience from am local chef and have a selection of wines paired for you and delivered in advance of your arrival. The chefs release the menus ten to fourteen days beforehand. Prices are approximately £20 per person for two courses. Karen’s wine merchant will then suggest wine pairing for you and deliver to your cottage.

For lazy evenings when only a takeaway will do, the local curry house and pizza takeaway offer delivery services. A Chinese and fish and chip shop are a ten minute drive.
