Have just returned home from a two week stay at Rains Farm. We have previously stayed there on a number of occasions, but always only for a week at a time. It was never long enough in this delightful part of North Yorkshire, although even after two weeks we were still reluctant to leave. The farm is a haven of... More

Spotlessly clean cottages. The owner Lorraine left us to our own devices but was there if we needed her & was very helpful before we arrived, providing us with local information. The cottage was brilliantly equipped with everything you might need and everything was so immaculate it is clear Lorraine works very very hard! Even though the b&b is adult... More

Rains Farm was a superb place to stay and explore North Yorkshire. It was comfortable and very clean. The views were wonderful from the lounge in the cottage and I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here.

My son aged 10 and I spent a great week at Rains Farm in late July. Wren Cottage was a lovely place, very clean, tidy and everything in perfect working order. There is enough space in front of the cottage with a table and chairs for al fresco dining and a large lawn on the back side which is perfect... More

I am so thrilled you enjoyed your stay here and that your children and husband were able to experience this wonderful area around Pickering in which you grew up. Hopefully they will want to return as they too will have happy memories the same as you have from your childhood. Best wishes Lorraine. More

We stayed in one of the self-catering cottages. Idyllic setting, great facilities, and very clean. Lorraine is a lovely landlady. Rains Farm is the ideal base for exploring this part of Yorkshire (coast, Rievaulx abbey, Hole of Horcum, Helmsley, among others). We only missed the chocolate other visitors were praising in the guestbook....Overall, highly recommended.

Thank you for your lovely review and pointing out that we are in an ideal location. I must apologise regarding the chocolates which we like to have waiting in the cottage ready for guests when they arrive. I am afraid it was an oversight on my part, no excuses, which I feel awful about. I didn't eat them myself, honest!... More
