South Moor

Stunning location next to Forest and Moor with great access to walk and cycle but 10minute drive / regular bus route to busy Market town of Pickering. One hour from beautiful University City of York. 6acres of Grassland and 2 acres of wild woodland quarry we plan to restore as a wild flowers reserve wth the help of the North York Moors National Park volunteers. So lots of brush and weed clearance and bonfires starting from 2018.

Very outdoor orientated retired couple looking for help with maintenance, logging for firewood etc in return for introducing travellers to the area. Laid back approach to life and keeping active and busy with outdoor pursuits, including Distance riding our Connemaras and simple living. This is not a business enterprise, we moved here at beginning of 2017 as a retirement refurbishment project and still have lots of outdoor clearance to do. At our previous home and business we had many student workers / travellers helping out on the farm. Visitors use a basic log cabin for accommodation as our cottage is very small but we provide a home cooked meal everyday.

A marvelous retreat of a house in the North Yorkshire Moors. I was treated so nicely and the work was engaging and interesting. .. I learnt a lot!
Mick and Ange are so friendly and welcoming and they fed me so well!
I would highly recommend this farm to anyone who is interested in horses and/or wants to learn about them. Ange is a encyclopedia of knowledge and can explain and teach you so much.
I felt so at home here . Be prepared for warm stove fires and long interesting chats.
Thank you guys for the fun experience!
