Carr House Farm


Carr House Farm has been named by BBC Countryfile as one of the top 10 places to stay in the UK for a rural experience. This accolade gives you a sense of what to expect from this North Yorkshire B&B; a beautifully situated farmhouse, dating back to the 16th century, with tons of old world charm. Moreover, it is the welcome that guests remember the most; home to Anna and Jack Peckitt – and a flock of sweet singing birds – they'll ensure you have all the creature comforts you need. Live out your country idyll and sleep in a four-poster bed, dressed with crisp white linen.

What are the rooms and facilities on offer at Carr House Farm?

Romantic rooms with all the luxurious facilities you would find in a comfortable country style. A rural morning is about waking up, getting out and gazing out over the hills and fields. It's about the day. Snug and warm in your bed to think about how you're going to spend your day prior to breakfast. Old chintzy, panelled walls, an Eastern tapestry and well-established antiques are all the elements of the house. 

What can guests enjoy when staying in the York area?

Roam the North York Moors National Park countryside on your doorstep. Explore Byland Abbey, Ampleforth, Castle Howard and York, all of which are a fuss-free drive away. This area was selected by the Guardian as one of the top 12 places in the UK for wild flower gardens, meadows and orchards. Enjoy the Dark Skies with binoculars or telescope...there is a universe waiting to be explored.

Where can guests enjoy food and drink?

Start the day with award-winning Yorkshire breakfast (a finalist in the Deliciously Yorkshire Food Awards for best use of local produce on a plate). A romantic hideaway. Tommy Bank's Black Swan Restaurant, Oldstead- voted best in the world 3miles form us.
