AT BEECH FARM
We’re very proud of Beech Farm. Whatever your age, whatever your interests, we believe you can have a fantastic holiday here. Our cottages are equipped with everything you might need and our facilities offer plenty to keep you occupied. Check the links to see more about the facilities and services we have on site.
But don't just take our word for it - check out our reviews on Facebook and TripAdvisor to see what our guests say about us:
Beech Farm is conveniently located for an abundance of attractions to keep people of all ages entertained. But there's plenty to do on site too, particularly for the children.
Pool - our indoor heated pool is open all year with the air and water kept at a pleasant 29C. The pool has an in-built spa while the building also has a sauna.
Animals - we have a selection of animals on site that younger guests are encouraged to join in feeding and petting. Currently we have rare breed sheep, goats, rabbits, guinea pigs and chickens and we run feeding sessions at least five days per week.
Indoor playroom - the latest addition to Beech Farm is our indoor playroom. It features a large screen for kids' movie nights, table football, an arcade machine, role play area, crafting/colouring table, reading corner and toy/game/book library. And outside there's a large decking area with additional outdoor seating for both dining and relaxing.
Playground - the centrepiece of our playground is a custom-built tractor but we also have a small football field, large in-ground trampoline, mud kitchens and a pair of handsome wigwams.
Table tennis/walled garden - we have a competition-standard outdoor table tennis table under a barn adjacent to our walled garden where you will find additional outdoor dining space and barbecues for guests (which we clean for you).
Guest laundry/honesty shop - our shared guest laundry also includes a small honesty shop stocked with 'essentials' like chocolate, ice creams and snacks, as well as locally-supplied ready meals for when you don't fancy cooking.
Electric vehicle charging - our off-street parking for all guests includes two electric vehicle charging points.
Beech Farm is owned and managed by Graham and Kirsty, who both work full-time on the business. Staff are on site daily with the sole mission of helping you enjoy the most of your holiday in an unobtrusive way.
We supply baby/toddler-related paraphernalia - 'proper' wooden cots, high chairs, stair gates, step stools, bed guards etc - free of charge and will have these put up in your cottage where required in time for your arrival.
We are proud to support other local businesses and can arrange fresh dairy products from the local milkman or a special birthday cake etc to be delivered to your cottage. In warmer times, we even get a weekly visit from the ice cream van! In our small on-site honesty shop, we stock ready meals from a local caterer as well as essentials you may require (including ice cream and chocolate!).
And if you need help with recommendations on where to go, what to do, where to eat, we're around to help.
There may be some things you haven't thought of that would help you further enjoy your stay in North Yorkshire. Here are some extra things to consider:
Outside catering is available from The Willows Catering Co. Alison can accommodate any request from dropping off a hearty lasagne or cottage pie to a 3 course meal for 20 people. She even has her own trailer which she can serve breakfasts or afternoon teas from. Nobody goes hungry on Alison’s watch!
Sarah Skaife Catering can provide a superb and great value afternoon tea, a buffet or cater for a dinner party. She can also cater for specific events, providing vegan, gluten free and lactose free alternatives upon request.
