  Arbour Hill - Relaxing and Romantic Holiday Cottages in the Yorkshire Dales

Arbour Hill is a beautiful Grade II listed Georgian model farm designed by the renowned architect John Carr of York for the 4th Earl of Holderness in about 1766. The Earl planned four model farms built in the Palladian style, each situated at one of the four points of the compass, so that when his wife looked out from her home in the nearby Hornby Castle she would be reminded of her native Italy.

Arbour Hill sits on a small hill overlooking the surrounding countryside, with breathtaking views of Hornby Castle, within its own 10 acre site and is nestled between Hornby and Patrick Brompton in North Yorkshire. We offer beautiful and unique self-catering holiday cottages for couples seeking Romantic and Relaxing holidays in the Yorkshire Dales.
