Dairy House is set in the typical, yet unspoilt moorland village of Newton, a cluster of stone farms and cottages in the splendour of the North Yorks. Moors National Park. The cottage has a unique character, combining original rustic features, modern technology and comfort. With its massive oak beams and thick walls it is warm and cosy in winter yet cool in summer. It is thought to be the oldest of the Manor Farm buildings. Its timbers may have come from oaks in Newtondale or from ships broken up in Whitby.
