Christmas in North Yorkshire

Spend Christmas in Luxurious Comfort

Christmas at Crag House Farm in the North York Moors National Park is an amazing experience. The barns look absolutely stunning dressed with fresh 13ft Christmas trees that we have selected from the forests at Duncombe Park Estate in Helmsley, this is one of Liz’s favourite jobs of the year!

With the fabulous cosy underfloor heating keeping toes snug and warm imagine you and your loved ones enjoying mince pies and sherry and a chocolate or two as you pop another log on the fire. Old fashioned board games come into their own at this time of year and we have a jolly good selection for you to enjoy.
