Enjoy a taste of country living, set in the Yorkshire Wolds. Cosy living room with quaint range fire, spacious dining room along with the privacy of 3 en-suite bedrooms.

Situated on a 500-acre arable farm on the Sledmere Estate, overlooking the rolling countryside of the Yorkshire Wolds which inspired the famous paintings of David Hockney, this holiday cottage is ideal for couples and groups of friends. Families are welcome but it’s not ideal for small children because of the annexe accommodation. Prices are for 6 people but discounts for smaller parties are available.  For a group of 8, utilising the family room, a supplement is applicable.  Visitors can enjoy a cosy living room with a quaint range fire and a spacious dining room, 1 first floor double/ family bedroom with en-suite bathroom and 2 annexe ground floor bedrooms; one twin/zip-linked with en-suite shower room and the other double with en-suite wet room. All are fully equipped and tastefully decorated to give you a taste of country living.

You could easily spend an hour or so on our tracks and grass margins and you would see brown hare, partridges, pheasants, yellow hammers and tree sparrows throughout the year. The summer months bring lapwings and skylarks in abundance but our special treat is to catch a glimpse of a family of Barn Owls nesting in one of the owl boxes we’ve put up.

There is an abundance of walking, riding and cycling tracks from the doorstep. Sledmere village (2 miles) has a renowned pub serving food and Sledmere House is a charming stately home with an 18th-century walled rose garden. Further historic houses can be found at Burton Agnes, Sewerby and Castle Howard. Just a 30-minute drive leads to the east coast, with miles of sandy beaches and traditional resorts including Bridlington, Filey and Scarborough. Flamborough with its lighthouse and RSPB Bempton are easily accessible. The market town of Beverley (17 miles) and historic York (24 miles) are not to be missed.
Stabling and grazing available by arrangement for guests bringing their own horses.

Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

Life Hill Farm offers flexible self catering accommdation by combining any ar all of our ensuite bedrooms with the kitchen and living room facilities.  This means that if there is only the two of you you can have one bedroom and the price of your stay reflects that.  For large parties of up to eight people you can combine all the bedrooms, including the large family room and you also have the use of our lovely dining room.  However two bedrooms are annex rooms immediately adjacent to the living accommodation so it is not ideal for young children unless sharing the family room with Mum and Dad.  All the bedrooms have ensuite facilities and have Flatscreen, digital TV/DVD players and tea trays.  They are all furnished to the highest standards and one double bedroom has facilities for disabled visitors.  The cosy living room has an open fire range and digital TV and DVD player.  The open plan kitchen has a ceramic hob, fan assisted oven, microwave, washer/dryer.  The accommodation opens onto a patio area and the hard tennis court.  The tranquil walled garden is all enclosed so young children can enjoy the space whilst Mum and Dad enjoy a rest.  Beyond the gate is 500 acres of open countryside which we are proud to say hosts some of Englands jewels on the wildlife list.  There are brown hares, skylarks, lapwings and nesting barn owls to name a few.  Come and see how many you can spot!
