Skerry Hall Farm is a traditional small farm nestling on the edge of the North York Moors overlooking Fylingthorpe and Robin Hood’s Bay. The farm’s buildings cluster around the farmhouse and stone-built barns which date from the seventeenth century.
You can now stay for bed and breakfast at historic Skerry Hall Farm. Set in a quiet, secluded position, nestling into the hillside below heather-clad moorland, with panoramic views over Robin Hood’s Bay, Skerry Hall offers the perfect bolt hole for those seeking first class accommodation in a house full of character.
You can stay in one of three beautiful rooms, each with an en-suite shower room. Breakfast is served in our new breakfast/sitting room, with its stone flagged floor and underfloor heating, which has a commanding view over the Bay.
The farm, which lies half a mile off the public road, is run by Alan and Jan Adams and has been home to the Skerry Herd of pedigree Dexter cattle since late 2004. Most of the beef we produce is sold through food lovers’ events or direct to the public.We also keep a small number of sheep and poultry.

Hear the call of the owls as night falls .... and, of course, meet our friendly Dexter cattle.
