This lovely 3 star self catering cottage offers spacious accommodation for 4/6 people + cot.
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!

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.

What to do while at Rusholme Grange
Stay on the farm and relax in the peace, quiet and space that is our home. 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.
