About High Lidmoor Farmhouse

Enjoy the simplicity of this rural farmhouse set within the North York Moors.

High Lidmoor is an 18th-century farmhouse that still retains much of its original character. Low beamed ceilings, barn doors and slate floors add to its rustic charm. The perfect, isolated holiday retreat, the cottage is surrounded by open moorland yet varied holiday facilities are only a short drive away. 

Step out of the cottage into a magical landscape, best explored on foot. Ramble along Bransdale soaking up outstanding views down the valley.

Further afield, the Yorkshire coast is just a short drive away. Explore Whitby, 38 miles from the cottage, with its ruined gothic abbey, ghoulish connection with Dracula and outstanding fish and chip shops.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
