Want a chance to do things at your own pace? The Grainary Farm Stay gives you just that, while experiencing the lively, unique culture of a working English farm, amidst the beautiful countryside of the North York Moors National Park

It’s been the home of the Simpson family (that’s us!) and the heart of Harwood Dale village for generations.

However long or short your stay, The Grainary is perfect for spending time with friends, family, pets or even by yourself. With two Labrador Collies and our working dogs Lollie, Blue, Bess and Gramps. You’ll always have someone happy to join you for a stroll by the pond.

If you can tear yourself away from the Farm and our stunning views of Scarborough Castle, the coast, and the moors, the famous seaside towns of Whitby and Scarborough are a stone’s throw away. You can do as much or as little adventuring as you like! The Grainary is an ideal family location, where you get the chance to interact with our farm animals.

Don’t forget to visit our Farm Shop and Plant Centre before you say goodbye, and take a piece of The Grainary with you!


Away from the sight, sounds and smells of towns or cities, our location offers a secluded and quiet atmosphere to sit back and enjoy a break from your daily routine.

Whether you are relaxing in your room or sitting outdoors, you can be sure that you will feel relaxed and peaceful at The Grainary. Enjoy a glass of something cold and take some time to enjoy the countryside and fresh air.

Words simply cannot describe how much of a lovely place The Grainary is! The accommodation is to very high standards as well as the staff who simply cannot do enough for you!

We have stayed here twice now in a family room and recently in a cottage as a family get away to celebrate our daughters first birthday.
The staff on the farm are very friendly and the cows are a hit with both my daughter and my partner who are obsessed with cows .

The food is beautiful especially the breakfast!

All staff are very friendly and it's great how you can stay intouch with them via Facebook.

Shout out to mark who is a great guy! We recently rehomed Gramps at the weekend (a dog who lived on the farm) we are so grateful and honoured to have been able to rehome him and look forward to booking our next stay and we of course will be fetching Gramps with us to see you all especially Lollie

We cannot recommend this place enough!
