  • Am i allowed to bring my 2 doggies

    Unfortunately we don’t accept pets. There is The Ellerby Hotel which is in our area, they do have dog friendly rooms there which could be good for you. Sally

  • We are contemplating a 3 night stay 10-14 October. Could you please clarify the reference in the accommodation details to 'Towels/ Sheets (extra fee)' as elsewhere in the description it appears to imply they are included in the standard price. Thanks.

    Hi, Thank you for your message. Yes the bedding and towels are all included in the overnight price. I’m not sure why it says otherwise. Sally

  • Between querying the 'towel/ sheets extra fee' issue an hour ago the price for three nights has increased from £337 to £360?

    Hi, There hasn’t been any change in the prices. Maybe you were looking at one person which would be £330, for two people it is £360. Sally

Folly Hall Farm is set in the middle of the North York Moors, with easy access to Whitby, Runswick Bay and the lovely villages in the Esk Valley. We have a lovely room in a converted stable adjoining the house. The room has the benefit of having its own separate entrance. There is a large en-suite bathroom with a roll top bath and a separate shower. From the room you have a great view across the fields and moors. Plenty of wildlife to watch including our own free range chickens. A delicious full English Breakfast is served in the farmhouse dining room with eggs from the chickens, again with a view across the moors. The room has flat screen tv with DVD, a selection of DVD's are in the room for you to use, a small fridge, board games and local maps and information. Tea/coffee making facilities, fresh milk, delicious local biscuits, water and luxury toiletries. Plenty of parking available and places to sit outside and enjoy the views.
Folly Hall Farm is ideally placed, making, it very easy to access the moors and the coast in a very short time. Whitby is only a 10 minute drive away. The coastal villages of Staithes and Runswick Bay are only a short drive away.
