Best Yorkshire Breakfast 2014
We were absolutely delighted to be announced as Winners of the Category
Our 600-acre working hill farm is located in the Washburn Valley, in the Nidderdale AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural beauty) which is on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North Yorkshire.
We are just 8 miles from the floral spa town of Harrogate, home to the first sprint finish in the 2014 Tour de France.
The B&B location is peaceful and picturesque and an ideal place in which you can relax away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Awake to the moorland views, the birds singing, the fresh clean Yorkshire air and start the day with an award winning hearty Yorkshire Farmhouse Breakfast before venturing out to explore our wonderful surroundings. There’s so much to see and do here in North Yorkshire you will be spoilt for choice.
On the farm we keep a flock of Swaledale, Mule & Blue Faced Leicester sheep which lamb from around early March until the end of April. We also have happy free range hens on the farm who provide the fresh eggs for your breakfast .
Jill, Sally & Meg, our Border Collies, are an essential part of Chris’s farm team and can regularly be seen working the sheep or riding on the Quad bike with him!
We also run a herd of Belted Galloways, a hardy native breed of cattle.
The farm has some beautiful waymarked walks which you can enjoy and you can safely leave your car here and take a walk round the Reservoirs of Fewston, Swinsty and Thruscross and maps can be found on the Yorkshire Water website.
The nearby towns of Harrogate, Ilkley, Skipton, Leeds, Otley, Pateley Bridge and York are easily accessible.
There are some excellent places to eat nearby including The Queens Head in Kettlesing, The Timble Inn in Timble Village, The Wellington Inn Darley and the Mill 67 Bistro just 3 miles along the A59 towards Harrogate from here. Please have a look at their individual websites for more details.
We are also close to The Boars Head at Ripley and The Devonshire Arms at Bolton Abbey.
I hope very much that you will choose to come to delightfully named Blubberhouses North Yorkshire and spend some relaxing time here at Scaife Hall Farm.
If you have any queries at all not answered on our website please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me and Ill will try to answer them.
