The Wold Cottage

A working farm with a difference…

Don't be fooled by the name 'The Wold Cottage'. Originally a Georgian city gentleman’s country retreat, Wold Cottage sits in beautifully landscaped grounds, surrounded by woodland and with un-spoilt views over their 300 acres of farmland and beyond to the Yorkshire Wolds.

Quality, style and your comfort are the of the highest importance to your hosts, who are regular finalists in the prestigious White Rose Awards thanks to Derek and Katrina’s special eye for detail throughout their accommodation and in the kitchen. They grow many of their own fruit and vegetables alongside local produce, the fresh flowers that decorate this Wolsey Lodge are from the garden and even the heating and hot water are as eco-friendly as possible.

There are four spacious and beautifully decorated bed and breakfast bedrooms, in the main house. In addition, a nearby converted barn with two further guest rooms, including a family room each with an en suite. Besides the crisp Egyptian linen, complimentary local bottled water, chocolates and biscuits you will find all forms of modern comfort.

A welcome tea with homemade cake is offered between 4 pm and 6 pm.
