Working Farm Near York

Jump to last reply

My husband and I, along with our reluctant 15-year-old son, are traveling to York, UK, for the first time and plan to see the historic sights in an near York over 3 days in late June.

The time in York is part of our 2-week trip to England. We will fly in and out of Heathrow. The current plan is to spend 4 days in London, 3 days in York (arrive by train and rent a car there), then travel to Portsmouth for 2 days, then on to Windsor for 2 nights before catching the plane home.

I would love to stay on a working farm near York as a "home base" for our travels in that area. We are "dog people" and would particularly enjoy seeing sheepdogs, but seeing other farm animals would be exotic for us city folk.

Does anyone have suggestions for working farms that take guests? I found a helpful website called Farm Stay http://www.farmstay.co.uk/working-farm.dot, but many of the properties look like B&Bs in rural settings and don't necessarily have animals. Also, I don't know what "self-catered" means, but it sounds as if I'd be cooking. Is that right?

Thanks for your help!
