Midweek Cottage at Bank House Farm offers exceptionally flexible self-catering accommodation in a simply beautiful position nestling within the dale of Glaisdale in the North York Moors National Park. It is every bit as suitable for couples as it is large groups of up to eleven with open-plan living on the ground floor, and one dorm room upstairs with nine single beds plus a bunk bed for large group bookings, and the option of a king-size bed for couples.
The cottage is a popular choice at weekends for large groups of friends, families, clubs and outdoor enthusiast groups who want affordable bunk-barn style accommodation from which to explore the North York Moors. With three nights offered for the same price as two over the weekend, parties of up to eleven guests can enjoy a weekend away for as little as around £45 each!
Couples will also find the barn appealing and can take advantage of the mid-week reduced rates or the seven night discount.
Sitting on an organic farm, the owners are close at hand to provide as much or as little assistance as required to ensure you discover the beauty that surrounds. Spend your days exploring the myriad of footpaths throughout this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty including Wainwright's Coast-to-Coast long distance path, just a mile from the farm.
The area also has an abundance of attractions for day trips out including the coastal towns of Whitby, Staithes and Robin Hoods Bay which are within easy driving distance (twelve miles). Then at the end of the day enjoy relaxing back at base with a large garden with BBQ, fire pit and spectacular views - just perfect for lazy evenings chatting about your days' adventures.

Outside: There is plenty of space to relax amongst the beautiful surrounding scenery with a few patios, fire pit and running water for washing down bikes. Lots of room for children to play and let off steam. Off-road parking for a number of vehicles. There is also a camping barn in the grounds which has facilities for washing dogs if required.
Additional information: Three or more dogs are welcome providing they can be kept under control as this is a livestock farm (a small additional charge applies). Bookings are taken between February and December (closed during January for maintenance). Please bring your own duvet or sleeping bag. An under-sheet, pillow and pillow case is provided for each bed. Please also bring your own towels.
Prices: A flat rate pricing structure applies throughout the year (apart from bank holiday weekends) based on £500 for either two or three nights over the weekend (£700 for bank holidays). This is for the whole property regardless of whether it is two or eleven people booking so exceptionally good value for large groups of friends, walkers, cyclists etc). For mid-week bookings, £120 per night applies making this good value for couples, and a discounted rate of £500 applies for those booking a week.
