“Absolutely Brilliant”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Just returned from a weekend Mountain biking at Dalby Forest using Rectory Farm B&B as our base.Despite a very late arrival on Friday night we felt very welcome, safe and secure bike storage was offered too. Our rooms were spotlessly clean with super comfy beds and all the comforts of home. Really delicious and filling breakfast with great fresh coffee, the rhubarb and ginger jam was gorgeous and the stewed fruit was a real treat. Having our own lounge with log fire, flat screen TV and complimentary tea and cake after a hard day out on the bikes was a real bonus too.Michael and Heather were very attentive but never intrusive and we all felt very comfortable. Hoping to return again soon as there is so much to do and see in this area.

Thank you for your positive comments

. We have a safe and secure area for mountain bikes and being so close to Dalby forest, make an ideal base for the fit and adventurous, However the steam railway which runs through levisham station on route between Pickering and Whitby offers a quieter and less energetic way to discover this area, with a taste of a bygone era.

Delighted that we were able to make your holiday enjoyable and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

A warm welcome with tea and cake for us after a 15 mile walk from Hutton-le-Hole. Very clean, comfy room, quiet and well equipped. Our dog was catered for in the farm's tack room overnight too! A short step to the Horseshoe pub for a good meal and a few real ales, and an undisturbed sleep. Breakfast was hearty, homemade and substantial, the hosts attentive and friendly. A refreshing stop on our walking holiday, good accommodation and good value. Easy to recommend.

Room Tip: The rooms in the main farm building were all of a high standard.

A lovely, spacious, comfortable, quiet, clean room with views of the village
A good, hearty breakfast; locally sourced bacon, sausages and eggs freshly cooked on a hot plate. Homemade preserves and home baked bread (toasted)
Michael and Heather made us most welcome and always felt they were on hand, if needed
We will certainly visit again

We have enjoyed three nights B&B in the delightful farmhouse. The owners made us welcome. The breakfast was one of the best we've eaten - excellent sausages, bacon, homemade bread, jams and stewed fruit. The room was spacious, well furnished and clean with a nice sitting area. The surroundings are beautiful. An experience we will treasure.

We stayed in Primrose Cottage, which has 2 bedrooms and sleeps 4 people. On arrival there was a freshly baked loaf, fresh eggs and milk supplied. Rectory is a working farm so there are dogs (3 very friendly animals), horses, chickens, sheep and cattle all around. If you don't like animals or animal noises then, for goodness sake don't go there.
Levisham is a pretty little hamlet with a smashing pub, not cheap but great food and excellent ale. The road to the hamlet is quite narrow and twisty, with steep up and down slopes but the views from up on the moor are well worth that. The station is 1½ miles away down a steep road but if you enjoy railways and, in particular, steam railways the a visit there is a must. You will also fine a resident artist, Christopher Ware, there. Christopher paints beautiful landscapes and wonderful trains and you can purchase reasonably priced prints or, if you are feeling flush, an original painting.
During our time we saw deer, fox, common toad, squirrel, kestrel and surprisingly a slow worm. There are lovely walks around Levisham and nearby Dalby forest and it is a short distance to Whitby and Scarborough.
If you enjoy the countryside the I recommend you contact Michael & Heather Holt and book now. We loved it.

I stayed at Rectory Farm for three nights as part of a cycling holiday and the experience could not have been better. The room was very comfortable, the breakfast was lovely ( fresh baked bread etc. ). Most important, the owners were exceptionally helpful. They washed and dried our cycling kit when we needed it. They kept the bikes locked safely inside and when the local pub wasn't serving food, they drove us to another pub nearby and collected us later! Totally outstanding service.
Lovely area too - although steep hills in and out which challenged our legs

Room Tip: Great for cyclists

Just returned from a week in Cowslip cottage. The cottage was warm & cosy all week despite the very cold weather outside. This meant the electric blanket was very beneficial. The location is absolutely perfect, surrounded by stunning scenery, walks and a fantastic pub. We had a great week with our dog and would highly recommend it to anyone.
