Medieval Ulnaby

Our farm lies upon the site of medieval Ulnaby, a scheduled monument.  There was an archaeological evaluation and assessment carried out, the finding of which were published by the Time Team in 2008.

Read more about Medieval Ulnaby here.

As a scheduled monument we are not allowed to use pesticides and many fertilizers meaning the cattle on our farm live longer and mature slower.


In 2008 an archaelogical evaluation was undertaken by Channel 4's 'Time Team' at the site of Ulnaby Hall.

Their findings revealed that Ulnaby appears to have been occupied from the late 13th or early 14th century and was a two-rowed plan either side of a hollow-way and green.  The evidence suggested an adjacent manorial enclosure.

Some of our Trip Advisor Reviews

"Well worth a visit. Lovely farm shop with excellent meats etc and not badly priced, small gift shop upstairs with good selection of cards mugs and things. Cafe gets very busy but a lovely place for lunch or a cuppa. Everything is homemade and the scones are delicious. Play area outside for the children and some animals goats, pony and llama to pet."

"Called on 11/4/19 for coffee and scone. Beautiful cranberry and almond scone crispy on outside and lovely and soft inside. Pleasant staff and nice surroundings.."

"Called in for a coffee after being recommended by a friend. Whilst I was there picked up some of the frozen meat (lamb, steaks and mince) and will definitely be going back again. Nicest meat around."
