Surprise View Cottages - North York Moors

Nestled on a farmstead in the North York Moors National Park at the lower end of Farndale, famous for its wild daffodils, Surprise View Cottages have been converted from barns alongside the historic buildings which were once a mill and tannery. The newly renovated farmhouse, and cottages, are set against the backdrop of the moors behind.

Surprise View cottages are an excellent base for exploring the North York Moors. You can walk out to moorland, fields, tracks, woodlands and a network of public footpaths including the Tabular Hills link walk; you can tour or walk or cycle out leaving your car behind!

Surprise View is the name of the well-known, panoramic view looking down from the church at Gillamoor; the cottages are only 1 mile from the picturesque village of Hutton-le-Hole with its renowned Ryedale Folk Museum.

Surprise View Cottages are central for cycling, walking and touring the area, being only 25 miles from York, Whitby, Scarborough and the east coast resorts. They have a wealth of historic abbeys, churches and castles on their doorstep as well as major attractions like Castle Howard, North York Moors Railway, Flamingoland and the great Dalby forest.

Shops, services and attractions in the nearby Market towns of Helmsley, Kirkbymoorside and Pickering and area, give days of happy browsing.

Both farmhouse and cottages are on a small working farm keeping cattle and sheep (not pigs or cows);it has been farmed by our family for over 200 years.


Surprise View Cottage has flower troughs bordering the mill race running along one side, a small balcony looks over a fenced lawned area to fields, woods and the valley of Farndale


Field Barn Cottage stands in the field up the hill, enjoying panoramic views over fields, woods and the moorland edge


Lowna Farmhouse sits in the valley bottom with its South-facing garden looking down the meandering valley of the River Dove.

Whichever of the cottages you choose you will find that guest's needs are fully met; the cottages are all stylishly furnished but above all :- comfort is the keyword!

Lowna Farmhouse

Lowna is the beautiful heart of Surprise View. Seen from the vantage point at the church in Gillamoor, it is like a jewel set in the green and gold of the Moors.

Lowna Farmhouse has a timeless quality, and yet has been brought into the 21st Century with the skill of master craftsmen. It has an entrance hall leading into a spacious farmhouse kitchen with tiled floor and Aga; choose either to eat in here round the large kitchen table or in the elegant, oak-floored dining room which has an equally large oak table and upholstered chairs. From here you can stroll out onto the paved sitting-out area of the garden for drinks, or have breakfast in the morning sun round the mill-wheel garden table.

Walk from the dining room into the spacious sitting room which welcomes you with a roaring log fire, and sofas and chairs that you can sink into! A large flat-screen TV , DVD and Sonos sound system complete the relaxation zone; free telephone and Wi-fi provided.

From the hallway climb up the oak staircase into deep-carpeted bedrooms.

The two double rooms each have luxurious king-sized beds with memory mattresses, feather and down duvets and crisp cotton linen; fluffy white towels in each ensuite shower room add up to a cosseted stay!

There are two twin bedrooms, one with its own ensuite shower room and the second next to the roomy family bathroom. The full-sized single beds have feather and down duvets and crisp cotton linen; please ask if you would prefer blankets. Towels and toiletries are plentiful.

The bedrooms all have wonderful views looking out onto fields and woods and down to the River Dove and the valley below catching the sun right through the day.

Surprise View Cottage

Surprise View Cottage has an irresistable attraction with the small mill stream running at its foot and its extra stone stairs on the other side. It has a sunny south-facing aspect and lawn area looking onto fields. The ground floor has entrance hall leading to two bedrooms, 1 double, 1 twin, both with built-in vanity units and wardrobes and all locally commissioned pine furniture. Bedlinen is co-ordinated and plentiful with either duvets or blankets.

The bathroom has bath suite with toilet and washbasin and powerful shower over the bath.

From the entrance hall a staircase leads up to a high-beamed lounge with log-burning stove set in a brick on rustic stone wall, and round to a spacious fitted kitchen & dining area; entry to this can also be by the separate outside stone stairs. There are fitted carpets throughout the cottage with pretty fabrics and furnishings.

Field Barn Cottage

Field Barn faces south, a little way up the hill from the farm in a grass field, as its name suggests.

Its sunken wall (ha-ha) means it has uninterrupted views over the moorland edge.

The beamed entrance hall with oak flooring opens onto a carpeted lounge which has two rustic stone walls and living flame gas stove; large french windows and arrow windows give panoramic views over valleys and woods.

The hall also opens onto a large oak-floored newly-fitted kitchen with stone-walled dining area; french windows give access to another patio area overlooking the historic farm and mill buildings, woods & open moorland. There are two arrow windows with views up and down the valley.

The carpeted staircase leads up to two bedrooms, one double and one twin, both with fitted vanity units, drawers, wardrobes and enclosed shelf space; each has wonderful views over open countryside. The bedlinen is co-ordinated and plentiful with either duvets or blankets. The bathroom has bath suite, washbasin, toilet and powerful shower over the bath.
