Heather and Richard Mullin offer you a warm welcome at this stunning location a mile and a half above Sawdon village on the edge of Troutsdale and near Dalby Forest. Guests staying in our self catering cottages can walk or ride straight out into miles of tracks and footpaths. Four thousand years ago ancient man also chose this elevated site to build a Bronze Age burial mound. Sunsets and rainbows can be spectacular.

We have 3 acres of landscaped gardens with a box parterre, herbaceous borders, lawns, and seating areas. Our gardens won Gold and Overall Category winner in Yorkshire in Bloom and Gold in Scarborough in Bloom in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

We have a wealth of bird life that we enjoy watching especially our own swallows and goldfinches.

We have created a viewing platform complete with pod summer house to take advantage of the beautiful view of the Vale of Pickering whatever the weather.  We have dark skies so the stars can be stunning.

Parents be aware there are two large ponds on site. Children enjoy spotting wee beasties in the wildlife pond and watching the koi.

There is a separate laundry area and secure storage for bikes. Amber Cottage is wheelchair friendly with easy wheelchair access.

There is W Fi in the cottages but mobile reception can be erratic especially because the stone walls of the barns are very thick.

Guests may bring a well behaved dog to either Jade Cottage or Topaz Cottage, this area is perfect for dog walking.
