About Penny's Place

The farm is set in beautiful countryside on the edge of the North Yorkshire moors in Ryedale with many farmyard animals including goats (Disc the biggest billy you are likely to see!), poultry,pet Dexter cattle (a bull who thinks he's a horse!),coloured horses, Haflinger & Appaloosa horses, pot-bellied pig, friendly farm cats and dogs, ewes and lambs.
Pets are welcome and we have a farm walk with abundant wildlife including foxes hares, deer, curlews, partridge, herons, skylarks and pheasants and a chance to see green energy being grown - our short coppice willows.
Some of the buildings on the farm are up to 300 years old and swallows return to them each year flying in and out of the buildings all summer long.The farm has an environmental friendly policy to encourage wildlife and our animals graze on land that is free from chemical sprays and fertilisers. Our newly installed wind turbine provides most of our electricity exporting the surplus to the grid.
The area is a walker’s paradise and has many abbeys, castles, museums and country pubs serving high quality food. Scarborough, Whitby and the historic city of York are within easy reach.
