The Game Larder, located in the middle the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, is a repurposed Boulton and Paul game larder from the turn of the 20th century sleeping 2 guests. The cedar wood building is set on a traditional sheep and cattle hill farm with views down the Esk Valley and across to Danby beacon.

Just a 20 minute walk away is the pretty village, Lealholm. Despite being small, the village has all the basics that you may need including a good pub, shop, post office, garden centre and tea rooms. Whitby, a seaside town, is a 20 minute drive from the farm. Explore the many traditional moorland villages which can all be found within a 30 minute drive. The surrounding area offers many scenic routes that are great for walking, cycling and horse riding.
