Bunkhouse Barn

Enjoy the peace and quiet of the North Yorkshire Moors when staying on our farm.  Sleeping up to12 in two dormitories, one of 8 and one of 4,  the barn is in a quiet location overlooking a small paddock and Eller Beck. Goathland village is a 15 minute stroll away along the farm road or on a path across fields. Located on a farm of about 40 acres in the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, this is an ideal base for walking, cycling or simply relaxing on the farm or in the village of Goathland.


We provide a basic accommodation, suitable for walking, cycling and scout/DoE groups, or for just an overnight travel break.  Campers will find the accommodation useful if the weather is less than  amenable too. The bunk barn is an adapted stone-built long barn, originally constructed about 1745.  Accommodation includes a lounge with a wood-burning stove which provides heating and hot water in addition to the gas heating. The bunkhouse has a fully-equipped kitchen, dining room and first floor dormitories.  Cloakroom facilities are in the adjacent connected building, consisting of one shower room with toilet and hand basin, one shower cubicle, and one toilet and hand basin cubicle. There is also a toilet and shower wet-room suitable for wheelchair users. The adjacent paddock can be booked for additional tents if required.

On-line grocery orders can be placed with Asda, Tesco or Sainsbury.  Please be available to receive any orders placed.


See our how to get here page for detailed directions and public transport advice. In Goathland, the farm is sign-posted next to the Goathland Hotel, opposite Goathland Garage. The farm is about 800m along the lane. The lane, which is a bridleway, is the track-bed of the original Grosmont to Pickering railway, and crosses a neighbouring farm to reach our site entrance, marked with sign boards. The bunkhouse and reception are a little further on, turning left, towards the house and farmyard.
