About Pump Hill Barn

Pump Hill Barn dates from the 1800s and has the original stonework and beams to prove it. Located in the pretty village of Aberford, the holiday cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms. It is within walking distance of the village green, a playground, and the local pub, The Arabian Horse (there is also a fish and chip van that comes around once a week). It's perfect for couples or families who want to explore favourite parts of Yorkshire without tying themselves to one specific area.

Aberford is peaceful and welcoming and just a few miles drive from Garforth for supermarkets, cafes and bakeries. Excellent road links and a mainline train station at Garforth and East Garforth make it simple to explore the region. York, Leeds and Harrogate are all within half an hour's drive, each offering a wealth of attractions and places to eat, drink and shop.

If you've come to Pump Hill Barn on a walking holiday, then you will be delighted by the variety of walks in the area. The Aberford Triumphal Arch in the Parlington Estate is only a mile away, while the Lotherton Hall house and grounds are only half a mile further. A longer walk will take you to the stone cross marking the site of the Battle of Towton, where 50,000 men fought in hand-to-hand combat on 29 March 1461. The victory saw the Yorkist forces of Edward IV defeat the Lancastrian supporters of Henry VI, ending, at least for a few years, the War of the Roses. Harewood House is seven miles from the cottage, as is the Fairburn Ings Nature Reserve.

Places to visit during your stay include the magnificent Castle Howard, RHS Garden Harlow Carr, Brimham Rocks, Fountains Abbey, Bramham Park, Newby Hall and Gardens, and the National Railway Museum. Europe's largest rare breeds farm is at Temple Newsam House and Farm, seven miles away and an excellent choice for a family day out.

The 200-year-old Pump Hill Barn welcomes visitors all year round. The owners live in the cottage next door, so they are nearby if you have any questions.
