The Experience

This converted stone barn sits comfortably amongst the fields, woodlands and hidden valleys. Inside find mid-century furniture and slick styling, underfloor heating and strong eco credentials. The oak beamed living space is inviting, bedrooms have big beds and en suite bathrooms are stocked with eco-friendly soaps.

Load up with Yorkshire’s finest produce at the Friday farmers’ market, bring it all home to cook and eat together. The open plan kitchen has plenty of basics and there’s a chilled bottle of Prosecco and fresh milk in the fridge.

Cook outdoors on summer evenings and watch stars in this Dark Sky reserve. There are walks from the door – ask Lorna and Chris about their favourites. World-class hill climbs and forest trails will tempt cyclists, and the coast is only a short drive. There are plenty of books and games.

Breaday Gill was just the most perfect find. We thought when booking the photos, description and location ticked all the boxes but in fact, in reality, everything was better than we could have hoped for (and we are very fussy). The property is squeaky clean, very private, (totally unaware of another let next door), extremely quiet, spacious, very comfortable bed, kitchen area fully equipped. Our very smiley host, Lorna, was delightful and so helpful with local information and her lemon drizzle cake and organic fizz delicious. we left feeling very fortunate and totally relaxed. Thank you

Diana, Burnham-on-Crouch

Lorna and Chris have created the perfect home from home within this stunning location. A little known hamlet in the North York Moors but their cottages ooze style, charm and tranquillity. They are the perfect hosts, natural, welcoming and so helpful. A weekend may not be long enough, you will want to return for sure to discover more of this wonderful area in North Yorkshire.

The neighbourhood

The farm is at the tail end of the tiny hamlet of Silpho, surrounded by a patchwork of fields, overlooking the Forge Valley. It’s a 10-minute drive to the nearest shop and pub in Scalby, just outside Scarborough. There’s a great farm shop in Pickering, 15 miles away, and a farmers’ market in nearby Wykeham on Fridays. Seamer and Scarborough railway stations are both a 15-minute drive.

Local points of interest from Lorna & Chris Harrison

  • Silpho is a quiet hamlet tucked away in the south-eastern corner of the North York Moors National Park. Heather moorland, limestone grassland, streams and ancient woodland support a host of wildlife. Spot Honey Buzzards, Barn Owls, Goshawks and Merlin.
  • Boggle Hole, our favourite hidden cove on Yorkshire's Heritage Coast, just 15 minutes' drive. Stroll along the beach or enjoy clifftop views on the Cleveland Way Path before exploring historic Robin Hoods Bay. Superb cafes, rockpools and Boggles to find.
  • Our privileged location in the North York Moors National Park offers Dark Skies Status and an enchanting landscape of moors, forest, hidden valleys and coast. Walk, climb, cycle, surf or just drink in the views. RSPB Bempton is a must see for Puffins.
  • Splendid stately homes with stunning gardens to explore. Scampston Hall with its award winning walled garden by Piet Oudolf. Sledmere House & Gardens, Burton Agnes Hall and Castle Howard are all within easy reach. Explore history, art, flora & fauna.
  • From world class cycling trails and Go Ape at Dalby Forest, whale-watching and Yorkshire Safaris with Yorkshire Coast Nature to paddle-boarding, surfing or North Yorkshire Park we have something to suit all levels of adventurer.
  • Yorkshire's Food Capital, Malton, is a great place to explore the finest produce our county has to offer. The North York Moors has a glorious natural larder with some of the finest culinary treats. Cosy country pubs, seafood galore and delicious cake!


Lorna & Chris Harrison

Lorna and Chris have lovingly restored these two former barns. Chris is the planner and designer Lorna has brought warmth and cosiness to the modern spaces – they are a dream team. The couple are natural hosts, welcoming guests like old friends and are keen to share their love for this special place, where Lorna grew up. Her father and youngest son still farm the land surrounding the cottages.
