Peckittshire – is a beautiful location between Ampleforth and Wass and only accessible to guests staying at Carr House Farm. In both the North York Moors National Park and the AONB of the Howardian Hills . Yet only half an hour from the ancient city of York

The Finest View in England

James Herriot once describe the view from the top of Sutton Bank (pictured) as “the finest view in England”. Located┬ájust a 10 min drive from Carr House Farm. The viewing platform is a short stroll from the visitors centre and is on the Cleveland Way. Or why not go south┬áalong the dramatic escarpment to the famous Kilburn White Horse.


Local & Talented

We are so lucky to have such talented artists across North Yorkshire . These are some  of my favourites. You are able to visit their workshops and buy their creations. Handblown glass from Gillies Jones in Rosedale , handmade walking sticks from The Stick Man in Helmsley and of course the famous Mouseman of Kilburn who is only 4 miles from here.
