Greenhill House

Framed by trees with lovely country views, the Hegarty family’s fine Georgian farmhouse is at the centre of a large working farm.


In true Northern tradition, Elizabeth Hegarty is a great baker and greets guests in the drawing room with an afternoon tea which includes a vast array of home-made teabreads, cakes and biscuits - and home baking is also a highlight of wonderful breakfasts that are based on tasty local produce like bacon, sausages, mushrooms, free range eggs, smoked salmon, strawberries and preserves.


There are two large family rooms and, although not luxurious, the thoughtfulness that has gone into furnishing bedrooms makes them exceptionally comfortable everything is in just the right place to be convenient - and Elizabeth is constantly maintaining and improving the decor and facilities.


Bedrooms have direct dial telephones, and little touches - like fresh flowers, a fruit basket, After Eights, tea & coffee making facilities, hair dryer, bathrobe, good quality clothes hangers and even a torch - are way above the standard expected of farmhouse accommodation.


There’s also broadband internet access, a safe, fax machine, iron and trouser press available for guests’ use on request.
