Stayed at Rains Farm whilst working in the area. Lorraine was very welcoming and made a fantastic breakfast! Slept soundly in one of the rooms at the farm house and woke up to a fantastic view over the Vale of Pickering. I shall return.

Our second visit to Rains Farm, just as good as the first, spotlessly clean, great food, quiet accommodation and a lovely hostess. Thank you Lorraine. Hopefully will be back in the future for some scintillating conversations ! Regards Frank and Ann

We had a lovely welcome and stay at Rains Farm in one of the self catering cottage. The cottage was cosy and finished to a very high standard with everything we needed. We very much enjoyed the surprise Lorraine left for us in the Kitchen!

We have been to Rains Farm many times and would not think of staying anywhere else. All the cottages are so well-equipped (we have stayed in three different ones) and always so clean and comfortable. There seems to be something new each time we arrive, Lorraine really stays on top of the situation. We find it most convenient to get... More

Another wonderful fortnights holiday in Orchard Cottage, at Rains Farm. A warm welcome from Lorraine as always, with the cottage being spotlessly clean and comfortable. Everything you need for a relaxing break is there at this very quiet and scenic location. Ideally situated to visit the Vale of York, the North East coast and the spectacular North York Moors. Already... More

This is a brilliant place to stay - beautiful location & convenient for all sorts of activities within the North York Moors. This is the third time we have stayed in Granary Cottage - spotlessly clean as always, and Lorraine welcoming as usual. A pleasure to stay.

Fifteenth time at Rains. First time staying in Primrose Cottage. Very comfortable, clean with everything you could possibly need. Quite and restful with lovely views of surrounding countryside. Abundant wildlife. Weather was brilliant but there is always something to do and places to visit. We love travelling to York and catching the Park and Ride.

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
