The Grainary


Deep in the heart of Harwood Dale lies a Shangri-La of rural tranquility. Nestled in the North York Moors National Park, The Grainary is a historic farm that’s frozen in time.

There’s not a place like this. Our Farm Stay experiences are second to none with a variety of accommodation – take a look at our three Farmhouse Holiday Cottages and our 14 en suite, Bed and Breakfast rooms.

You have two choices of family-friendly restaurants, kids’ meals, a Farm Shop to take home a memory, a Wedding Venue, lake hiking trails and, of course, a Yorkshire Working Farm.

We have shaggy cows, curly pigs, happy ponies, farm dog tour guides (please don’t tip them, they don’t carry change), curious geese and silly lambs (in season). Happily, we have achieved our dream of sharing the wonders of a working, family farm with kind guests and their families from around the world.

And they have come.!

From Australia, America, even Lancashire, we have hosted everyone. Solo hikers, romantic couples, welly-clad wedding parties, school classes and we can also accommodate and cater for large group bookings.

But if you come as a family, we will give you the memories that childhood was made for. And bring your pet – just make sure they are kept on a lead!

And that frozen tranquility? You may hear a bleat now and then, but you won’t meet a friendlier, more welcoming, family team than the Simpsons at The Grainary.

Come on in!

“Can’t wait to go back in the summer and explore the area more, I can’t recommend this place enough, the staff, the accommodation, and the food is exceptional. It’s also a perfect location as there are lots of places to visit nearby 😀”
