Our delicious Yorkshire breakfasts are made using home grown & locally sourced ingredients. Everything from freshly squeezed juice, fruit compote, yoghurt and cereal to our full cooked breakfast which is a simple plate of bacon, sausages, roasted tomatoes, mushrooms and eggs done as you like them. There will generally be other items on offer such as kippers, eggs Benedict, smoked salmon and of course bacon or sausage butties.
After a long day exploring the delights of North Yorkshire you may sometimes prefer to put your feet up rather than venture out again. Our Supper Platters consisting of local, home-grown and homemade ingredients can be enjoyed in the lounge in front of the fire, in the garden or in your room.
There is a spacious lounge for our guests to enjoy with comfy sofas and a log burning stove for cooler evenings. The large garden is fully enclosed and has a sun terrace where you can sit to enjoy the views. We provide a list of local pubs, cafes and restaurants that serve good food for you to visit during your stay.
We are dog friendly with up to two well behaved dogs welcome.
Please check availability above and phone or email to book.
We think this area is one of the most beautiful in Britain. Whether you just want to relax in the garden and look across the forest or walk through Newtondale to Levisham there is plenty to do without venturing far. The wonderful beaches at Sandsend and Whitby, the ruins of Rievaulx Abbey, the market towns of Pickering & Helmsley; Castle Howard and York are also nearby.
On arrival in Pickering follow the A170 to the traffic lights signposted to the Steam Railway, Newton upon Rawcliffe and Stape. If coming from Scarborough, York and Whitby turn right at the traffic lights. If coming from Thirsk and Helmsley turn left. After passing the Steam Railway station you will cross the level crossing at Newbridge following the road up a hill then across gently rolling hills for 4 miles or so before arriving in Newton upon Rawcliffe. Follow the road through Newton, past the White Swan pub and after half a mile go past the turn off for Cropton following the sign for Stape. After about a mile you will enter Stape. Turn left into Middle Head Road which is approximately 500 yards past the red telephone box. A few hundred yards along Middle Head Road the road forks where you should keep left. Flamborough Rigg Cottage is the 4th property on the left roughly ½ mile down the road.
