  • Description


    We are a small horse farm on the edge of the North Yorkshire moors with mainly horses, but also a cat, two goats, hens and two dogs.

    We are a young (ish) couple with a new baby. James is a horse farrier and Charlotte runs the yard at home. We have around 15 horses here and people come most days to ride their horses. Come May the horses go out in the fields and the barns are used to host weddings so the work varies from the winter to the summer quite a lot!

    It is a lovely rural area, in a beautiful setting with lots of walking on the doorstep. The nearest market town is only 1 mile away, Kirkbymoorside, which has a farmers market every Wednesday. There is a bus stop 10 minutes walk away which you can get to places like Pickering, Helmsley, Whitby and York.

    The area is a truly English countryside area and right on the edge of the beautiful North Yorkshire moors with fantastic hiking and tourist attractions. It's a good place for people wanting some down time too.

    You can visit Whitby, Scarborough, york, pickering. All accessible by bus. We also have bikes you can use.

  • Help


    The tasks in the winter are mainly mucking out the horses, putting in the fields, changing rugs, cleaning tack and feeding the goats and chickens. Wehave two local staff so the work is mainly to help with Charlotte’s own horses (4 of them). So it is usually 4 stables to do. We ask that you can do 4/5 hours a day, 5 days a week and the rest of your time is yours to do what you like! If you want more time off that is fine we like to be flexible and fit around you. Somebody who is happy to ‘chip in’ is great. Occasional cook and If you are comfortable with it, play with our little son or take the dogs for a walk.
    If you can ride well there will be opportunity to do this and if somebody is capable of schooling great as I have a young horse who needs training.

    In the summer time the help is mainly riding (if you can) and Poo picking the fields!

    Our farm would best suit two friends or a couple or somebody who is independent.

  • Accommodation


    Accommodation is either in the house or in a large mobile home which has 2 double bedrooms living room kitchen toilet and shower. You will have your own bedroom. Sometimes two friends share a double bed. We have a digital TVs and DVD player and it is heated. In the house you have your own bedroom. You have to be prepared to sometimes make your own meals but there will be plenty of food.

    Internet wifi is good in the house. We have an extender to the mobile home and it's not as strong but we are in a very strong 4g area so if you have a mobile phone or can link it to your laptop this will help you use it in the static.

    What else ...

    There are some great places to visit and you can do this easily by local buses or our bikes. York is a stunning city as is Whitby by the coast. You can catch the train from Pickering to Whitby which is a fantastic experience.
