Farsyde House has a loyal following from those who appreciate the location, the horses and other animals, the warm and friendly welcome, a picture-book village.

Farsyde House stands out among several superbly situated cottages on a family-run stud farm in the North York Moors National Park. There is good access to the beach and fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay, one of the most attractive places in North Yorkshire. Visitors have access to some fine horses for year-round hacking over beach, heather moors, fields or forest - or you can bring your own horse. Cows and calves, horses and donkeys graze the fields.

The house is a very special 17th century Grade II listed building, recently renovated. It has the date 1670 and Farsyde initials over the door and still retains many features dating from that time, including several mullion windows. There are sea, country and moorland views.

There's a large living room with open fire, oak floor and beams, an old panelled dining room with inglenook fireplace, beams, salt cupboard, spice cupboard, wall cupboard and settle. Also a large kitchen with freezer, fridge, dishwasher, electric oven and gas hob, beech cupboards. The master bedroom with a king-sized and single bed leads to a large ensuite with bath and separate shower. Second bedroom with king sized bed and single bed, a pull-out second bed, and old panelling throughout. Third bedroom with single bed. There is a house bathroom with bath and shower and a period staircase to a galleried landing. There's central heating to all rooms and areas, also storage heaters in the reception rooms.
