Terms and Conditions

Guest Access:

Free parking will be provided in a locked car park. A map will be provided in the shepherd hut. This will show you which areas of the farm you can access. We run animal tours daily and as part of your stay you are welcome to join one of these included in the price. There is a washing machine and drier located in the barn for your use.

Due to the remote nature of the hut we do recommend that guests come by car.


We as hosts will be available most of the time, however if we are not around we will supply you with a mobile number on arrival for any queries you may have.

The Area:

We live on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, a beautiful unspoilt location ideal for long or short walks, cycling, and seeing nature in all it’s glory.

In the local area we have many attractions within just a couple of miles. National Trust houses are dotted all around. Burnby Hall Gardens as well as Allerthorpe Lakeland Park are two of the more popular tourist sights.

We live close by the popular market town called Pocklington, great for local amenities, shopping, cafes, and restaurants. We are also lucky to be situated between two great towns, York and Beverley, both within 20 miles drive with lots of history, shopping, and entertainment.

If history is your thing, York has lots to offer. With the famous York Minster, and Jorvik Viking centre, along with the historic city walls and castle museum. Not to mention, Cliffords tower, York dungeons and York Chocolate Story. It is a great day out for all ages.

If you’re looking for a beach to walk along or some tasty fish and chips, we are close by Hornsea and Bridlington and not much further we have Scarborough, Filey and the famous Robin Hoods Bay.

Hull has been named City of Culture 2017, this has promised to be an exciting time with lots of activities and fun things to do. It is worth a visit to ‘The Deep’ in Hull to see marine wildlife in action, a great family trip.

At the Ginger Cow Company we have a brand new teashop, Monday-Saturday 10am-4:30pm. Here we serve home produced lunches, cakes, and afternoon tea. We also sell fresh bread and cakes.

Alternatively there are so many eating places to choose from, with local pubs, cafes, restaurants and takeaways. Ask us on arrival for our recommendations.

Getting Around:

As mentioned earlier we offer free onsite parking. There is a regular bus service approximately a mile from the farm, situated on the A1079. This bus route runs from York to Hull, stopping at Hayton which is ideal if you would like to visit the big towns, or villages in-between. Taxi’s run from Pocklington, just a few miles away.

The nearest train stations are Beverley and York. Beverley is 18 miles away and York is 17 miles away.

Other Things of Note:

Breakfast will be included in your stay. It is available in our Ginger Cow Teashop daily between 8:30-9:45am. There is a delicious choice of home cooked and locally produced food.
