Family friendly
enjoy relaxed time together and the joy of shared experiences

Wigglesworth House and Cottages have gone that extra mile into ensuring that Gamekeepers Cottage is both child and baby friendly, so that your whole family can relax and enjoy a unique holiday together, surrounded by the glorious North Yorkshire countryside our location has to offer. We love helping families get out and explore with their little ones, so we can offer advice, recommendations and let you know about the best days out and places to visit for babies and toddlers too.

  • Changing mat, potty or trainer look seat.

Safe and Relaxed

A safe and relaxed environment for child and baby friendly North Yorkshire holidays

Gamekeepers Cottage offers a safe and relaxed environment for child and baby friendly North Yorkshire holidays that the whole family can enjoy.

With enclosed and secure gardens, Bug Hotels and Log Piles (to encourage wildlife into them), Gamekeepers holiday cottage provides nature books that children can draw in and tell us all about themselves. Overlooking a large field, children just love splashing about in the puddles in, running around, or just watching the sheep and their lambs (during lambing season).

For those rainy days and evenings indoors, we have a variety of books for all age groups and various games & puzzles.
