We have re-invested in our holiday cottages and undertaken a major refurbishment ready for 2019. Two of our five holiday cottages are now suitable for the less mobile, both are ground floor and have easy access showers with either one or two bedrooms. The other three cottages are two storeys with two or three bedrooms. Rains Farm holiday complex has no close neighbours and is set back from the road with secluded safe parking. If you desire a very peaceful, beautiful location to spend your holiday then Rains Farm is the place for you. Bed and breakfast is available in the main farmhouse. We are inspected by the AA and have achieved a 4-star award for our holiday cottages and 4 stars with a silver award for our bed and breakfast accommodation. National winners of the AA's Friendliest B&B. Why not come and try some warm Yorkshire hospitality?

The farm commands a spectacular rural position on the edge of the North York Moors National Park in the sweeping Vale of Pickering, 1 mile from the nearest village, we offer a tranquil oasis for birds, wildlife and guests! The cottages all enjoy floor to ceiling lounge windows with beautiful panoramic views.

Rains Farm is perfectly central to visit many of the premier attractions of North Yorkshire including the North York Moors National Park, The Great Yorkshire Forest (Dalby Forest) The Steam Railway at Pickering, Yorkshires stunning heritage coast including the resorts of Scarborough and Whitby. The city of York, the market towns of Malton, Helmsley and Pickering, plenty of stately homes including the very famous Castle Howard are all close by. Another great attraction is Eden Camp, the World War 2 prisoner of war camp museum at Malton.

Guests can take scenic drives, indulge in great food, cycle, mountain bike, walk or just relax.
