Easterside Farm Bed and Breakfast has been open since 1991. It is a working farm which has about 250 breeding ewes which produce Suffolk and Texel cross lambs. The B&B is situated in the small village of Hawby near Helmsley in Yorkshire, Hawby is a very small viallage but there are pubs and shops at near by Helmsley. Helmsley is situated on the road from Thirsk to Scarborough. In the centre of the of the town square is a statue of Lord Feversham, not the current lord, but one of his ancestors. It probably is one of the most attractive villages in the country. It has a stream round the back of the square and pubs, restaurants and shops of the highest quality. The Black Swan Hotel in the centre of the village is said to have played host to none other than William Wordsworth who was visiting his future wife. The castle is well worth a visit and can be found just out of the square. Built around1200 and was once known as Furstan Castle. Sir Charles Duncombe bought the castle after it was rendered useless by Oliver Cromwell. The current Earls of Feversham are descended from Sir Charles.
