Murkhead Holiday Cottages are a newly converted farm building split into three cottages. They are all furnished and decorated to the highest standard and have fabulous views of the surrounding fields. Each cottage sleeps four with a double and twin room, each with their own en-suite.

The cottages are located within the grounds of Murk Head Farm in the stunning countryside of Harwood Dale, which is in the National Parks, close to Dalby Forest; a renowned walking area. The seaside town of Scarborough, with stunning beaches, is eight miles away. The beautiful fishing village of Whitby is just 10 miles away.

The stunning location lends itself to both Summer and Winter breaks and is ideal for walkers and beach fans alike. Now with super fast WIFI.
