Set... in a peaceful farm location, stay in Humble Bee Farm Cottages for an unforgettable holiday in Yorkshire!

Humble Bee Cottage, Merry Dale Cottage and Swallows Nest Cottages are superbly converted from historic farm buildings into three comfortable country cottages.

Humble Bee Cottage was once the farm’s granary, now offering welcoming accommodation over two floors with two en-suite bedrooms, a well-equipped kitchen, spacious dining area and relaxing lounge area with log burner. TV & DVD player available with Free-View & Sky Q.

Merry Dale and Swallows Nest Cottages each has its own private outdoor hot tub beneath a thatched gazebo, log burner, and a wall-mounted free-view TV. HDMI cable available for guests use.

Merry Dale Cottage has two en-suite bedrooms with comfortable beds, beautiful bathrooms and under-floor heating. This cottage also has a fabulous picture window overlooking the farmyard, so why not relax and watch the free range hens peck about!

Swallows Nest Cottage is tucked away in a quiet corner of the courtyard and includes two en-suite bathrooms with a large lounge, lovely kitchen and dining area. Under-floor heating will keep you warm and cosy when you return from a brisk farm walk.

With parking close to the cottages and with their Four Star Gold award, Humble Bee Cottages are homely, comfortable cottages with a touch of luxury.

“Very comfortable cottage, perfect location”

This is our second stay at the cottage since Nov 2014. As a group of friends getting together for a catch up weekend this location is perfect for us. The cottage is spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped. A couple of hanging hooks by the hot tub would help for towels and robes and we thought the addition of the robes was a lovely touch this year. We were a little disappointed with the significant price increase this year but we would definitely recommend Humble Bee Farm and cottages to couples, families and groups of friends. Thank you again for a lovely enjoyable weekend.
