Preserving the environment here at Baxby Manor is important to us.

Our family has been involved in farming since my great great Grandfather arrived here many moons ago, but unlike many farmers who over the years have ripped out hedges and trees to make way for crops we have planted them!  In the last 20 years we have planted over 25 acres of woodland, have carried out extensive conservation work on the hedgerows and are recognised for our large numbers of small bird and wildflower species. Having something to show to and share with future generations is really important to us.


Rufus’s Roost is situated in woodland belonging to a 710 year old medieval manor - Baxby Manor, and is even mentioned in The Doomsday Book!

Baxby Manor, on the edge of Husthwaite village, was built in 1308 and is nestled between the Yorkshire Dales and the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors and is conveniently just 17 miles from the historic city of York.

Even though we are only a few miles from the market towns of Thirsk and Easingwold you would be forgiven for thinking you were in the middle of nowhere!
