Enjoy a stay at this unique gothic miniature castle exuding character and history, set amidst parkland designed by Capability Brown.

Deer Park stands within 20 acres of parkland that is part of Capability Brown’s design for the great park at Scampston Hall. It is a Grade II* listed crenelated, gothic miniature castle with a long and fascinating history – folly and tea house, game keeper’s cottage, army camp and family home. It is now a spacious and very comfortable holiday house, ideal for family get-togethers, where children will find plenty to keep them entertained and adults can relax and enjoy this unique property with its numerous period features. The huge farmhouse kitchen is always cosy with heat from the Aga and there are open fires in the breakfast room and upstairs drawing room and a wood burner in the living room, adding to the ambience of these elegant rooms.

The house is surrounded by an enclosed garden with uninterrupted views over the park to Scampston Hall, a fine stately home with an award-winning walled garden and lovely restaurant. The park is a natural nature reserve and home to a wealth of wildlife, including deer, stoats and numerous species of birds. Rillington village is close by and has a useful selection of amenities including a general store, butchers, two pubs and a fish and chip shop. The gentle undulating chalk uplands of the Yorkshire Wolds, which inspired the famous Hockney paintings, is perfect for walking and cycling and visitors can enjoy a scenic trip through the North Yorkshire Moors aboard the renowned steam train which travels from Pickering (12 miles) to the fishing port of Whitby.

Local attractions include Castle Howard, Wolds Way Lavender and Sledmere House, and family fun can be found at Flamingo Land. There are an abundance of quaint market towns and pretty villages in this area and a good choice of traditional inns and fine-dining restaurants. A short drive leads to the ancient walled city of York, steeped in history and brimming with attractions which appeal to all ages and easily accessible are the seaside resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

    The adults in the group found the beds hard, not one of the seven nights did we have a good nights sleep. Unfortunately that sleep deprivation affects the enjoyment of a holiday. There are many that love hard beds, you win some, you lose some.

    Response on behalf of the owner: Oh dear Lynn, that is such a shame...if you had let us know we have some spare mattress toppers that can help in these situations. I'm glad you had a nice time otherwise.

    Second year at Deer Park. Just as enjoyable as the 1st time. Lovely house. Great location for a family gathering. Everything provided, even the little things, dishwasher tabs, etc. Owners always on call. All in all a fabulous family holiday location.

    We hired Deer park for a long weekend to attend a family wedding close by. The accommodation was perfectly located with everything you need for a family holiday -all bedrooms where nicely decorated, the kitchen area was a great place to gather and the living room was lovely to relax in. My favourite rooms was the upstairs living room -the sunset from here were amazing. One family member was in awe of the collection of books. I will definitely be back and highly recommend this house - thank you for our basket of goodies they were greatly appreciated Jackie and family

    We stayed here for a special family Birthday. There were various ages between 3-75 and we all had an amazing stay. The house is very special unique and caters for large parties. The grounds are fantastic for exploring and looking for wildlife. We would recommend a visit to the lavender park next door as walking distance and has a lovely cafe. Overall a brilliant break in the country.

    Warm welcome from Hermione. Spacious, clean,well equipped house. Great location. The children loved den building and playing pooh sticks on the bridge. What could have made it even better? A hot tub to take in the fantastic views!
