About Whitefields Cottage

Discover the spectacular ruins of Fountains Abbey from this large cottage with a farmhouse air.

Stay in this relaxed cottage with the feel of a farmhouse in the heart of Yorkshire. With enough room for six people and the option to put up an additional sofa bed for two children, it’s ideal for special get-togethers. It can also be booked with adjoining The Boot Room which sleeps a further two people. The dining table is perfect for big celebratory meals, and afterwards you’ll love to sink into the comfy leather sofas around a roaring log burner. You’ll have an enclosed lawn garden with picnic benches and plenty of space for dogs to run around.

Guests can enjoy free access to wander across the 700 acres of the busy Studley Royal deer park from the doorstep. Staying here really gives you the opportunity to experience life in a  working deer park.You’ll also have the privilege of your own key to experience the atmospheric ruins of Fountains Abbey and the beautiful Georgian water gardens once the day visitors have left. The cottage is just 10 minutes’ drive from Ripon town centre, where you’ll find plenty of cosy restaurants and pubs to enjoy.

You’ll be 20 minutes from the dramatic moorland rock formations of Brimham Rocks and Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Or if you want to go further afield, it’s about an hour’s drive into the windswept wilds of the Yorkshire Dales, where there are lots of walking routes. Other places to visit include the York Treasurer’s House, Nunnington Hall and Beningbrough Hall and Gardens.

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 through to 5 Acorns at the highest level. 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.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose, safe and clean. Running water and a WC are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities (details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage). Bedding, linen and towels are supplied (with a few exceptions, which is again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. Generally a 1 acorn cottage does not have wifi. Examples of a 1 acorn offer include Cartref, Wales and Rosedene, Worcestershire.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high sleeps to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 acorn cottages have wifi and, similar to a 1 Acorn cottage, the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic in their offer. All 2 (and higher) Acorn cottages supply bedding, linen and towels. Examples of a 2 acorn offer include Engine Cottage, Cornwall and High Hallgarth, Cumbria.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small sized kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage. Examples of a 3 acorn cottage include the Mustard Pot Cottage, Norfolk and Rose Cottage, Isle of Wight.

4 Acorn: these cottage have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally it is likely to have added comfort extras. The ratio of bathrooms to guests will be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers as opposed to over bath showers. Examples of a 4 Acorn offer include Portland House, Dorset and Stepper View, Cornwall.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage. This is the highest offer available. The furniture is of high standard, and has real comfort for modern living. Examples of a 5 Acorn cottage include The Old Rectory, South Wales and West Gate Lodge, Yorkshire.
