Our 600-acre working hill farm is situated in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural beauty on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The location is peaceful and picturesque and an ideal place in which you can relax away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Awake to the moorland views, the birds singing, the fresh clean Yorkshire air and start the day with a hearty Yorkshire Farmhouse Breakfast before venturing out to explore our wonderful surroundings. There’s so much to see and do you will be spoilt for choice.

On the farm we keep a flock of Swaledale, Mule and Blue Faced Leicester sheep which lamb from around early march until the end of April. We have happy free range hens who provide part of your breakfast, and also there are Border Collies called Jill and Sally who are an essential part of Chris’s farm team and can regularly be seen riding on the Quadbike with him! Our latest additions arrived in Feb 2010, Dottie, Betty and Boris!

The farm has some beautiful waymarked walks which you can enjoy and you can walk round the Reservoirs of Fewston, Swinsty and Thruscross and maps can be found on the Yorkshire Water website.

I hope very much that you will choose to come and spend some time at Scaife Hall Farm and if you have any queries not answered on our website please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

I look forward to meeting you soon


Things to see and do in West Yorkshire

Bronte Parsonage Museum
Bronte Parsonage Museum

The Brontë Parsonage Museum is maintained by the Brontë Society in honour of the famed Brontë sisters — Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë — and is located in Haworth, West Yorkshire, an area of England covered in much open, expansive moorland. It is popular with those seeking to find the source of the sisters' inspiration, and is of particular interest as the Brontës spent most of their lives here and wrote their famous novels in these surroundings.

The Royal Armouries is home to the United Kingdom’s national collection of arms and armour, including artillery.

This knowledge can be shared with others who also collect arms and armour, we are actively involved with and support a number of groups committed to the study of the subject and its practical applications. As such we offer an enquiry service to the public and the commercial world alike and have often acted as consultants on a number of film and television projects.
