Today is 'Tell a Story Day'. Here is a little about me and my story of what I love about living and working at Newton Grange.
Together with my parents Catherine and John, and with the fantastic support of my husband and family, I feel so fortunate to look after Newton Grange Farm and to welcome guests to stay here from all over the world.
I am deeply rooted in Yorkshire and grew up on a dairy farm a few miles away from Newton Grange.
It was fantastic to return to the area a few years ago after I got married. We had the most fantastic wedding day with a vibrant service in Carleton Church and a marquee wedding reception here on the farm.
Continuing more than a decade of hard work and investment put in to the farm by my parents is a real privilege. I am proud of the vibrant and beautiful place that Newton Grange Farm has become. I feel lucky to raise my family here and enjoy being able to take a walk or cycle from the doorstep. Bank Newton is a haven from city life and breathtakingly beautiful in springtime.
Walking is one of my greatest passions. I love nothing better than striding out on a good walk in the Yorkshire Dales, where my love of walking began. This year I am aiming to put together a collection of walks that you can enjoy from Bank Newton and beyond. Look out for ‘Rachael’s Rambles’ coming soon.
Please do pick up the phone if you’d like to find out more, have questions or need a recommendation on which cottages might work best together for larger groups – I would be delighted to help.
Whatever your reason for visiting, I do hope that we will welcome you to Newton Grange Farm soon.
