Stay in our lovely Farm Cottage Located on the banks of the River Ouse, Rusholme Grange is a lovely 3 star self catering cottage at the heart of a working farm and surrounded by beautiful open countryside. This lovely 3 star self catering cottage offers spacious accommodation for 4/6 people + cot.
The Cottage is furnished throughout in traditional country furnishings reflecting it's age as well as the open countryside all around. There's a separate dinning room and a fully fitted kitchen, microwave included perfect for those "easy" meals. If you need a washing machine or tumble dryer they are available for your use in the porch of the farmhouse.
Upstairs there's the bathroom complete with shower over the bath. All towels and bedding are, of course, included.
There are two generous bedrooms; one is a double, with a king size bed, and the other a twin room. There is ample room for a cot if needed in either bedroom, provided free of charge on request, also a high chair. In the twin bedroom there is a treasure chest of toys for our youngest guests. Both bedrooms have views over the farmyard and, from the twin, the orchard
On the farm we have horses and rear pigs alongside farming lots of wheat. Now the Wind farm has been completed we are even farming and harvesting electricity. In spring the lambs graze along the riverbank, and in autumn there are fresh apples to be picked and eaten straight from the orchard or baked into pies!
Centrally located for York and Hull which are only 35 minutes away and ideally located for the racecourses at:- York, Doncaster, Pontefract, Weatherby and Beverley. For those who prefer more rugged countryside the North Yorkshire Moors (with the wonderful North Yorkshire Moors Railway), The Yorkshire Dales and the amazing Yorkshire Coast are all within an hours drive.
You'll always be sure of a proper Yorkshire country welcome at Rusholme Grange, and we very much look forward to meeting you soon.
What to do while at Rusholme Grange Stay on the farm and relax in the peace, quiet and space that is our home. Have a walk around the wind farm. Enjoy beautiful riverside and country walks, Drax being only half an hours stroll away. Here you will find a village pub and a historic church. A little further afield is the village of Camblesforth with more pubs as well as both a fish and chip shop and an Indian takeaway. Just the other side of Drax village, and visible from Rusholme Grange, is Drax power station. This coal fired power satiation (the largest in Europe) has a wonderful nature trail which is well worth doing. Local places of interest are Selby town with it's traditional Monday market and Selby Abbey which is the largest parish church in England. North from Selby is the historic city of York with it's mediaeval Minster and streets such as the The Shambles. Further north still are the North Yorkshire Moors - Heartbeat country and home to Hogsmeade Station from the Harry Potter films (Goathland Station actually). Down river on either side of the Ouse is the charming small market town of Howden and, on the south bank, the port town of Goole. The Waterways Museum (in Goole itself) and the RSPB reserve at Blacktoft Sands are both worth visiting. Keep going east and you arrive at Hull with it's thriving shopping areas and even The Deep, a "submarium". To the west of Rusholme Grange there's Leeds home of the Royal Armouries, Henry Moore Sculpture Museum, Tropical World and a world class shopping centre, Harvey Nichols Department Store among many other top stores.
