Barmoor is run by a charitable Quaker trust and offers simple, self-catering accommodation to groups of not more than 27. This group size includes all aged two years and more. Camping or caravans are not permitted. Camp fires or barbeques are not permitted.
Responsible adult supervision is needed for all groups including children. Parties of young people must be accompanied by one adult to every 5 under-sixteen.
The lead person of any group has responsibility for all issues of accessibility, child protection and the protection of vulnerable adults appropriate to their group. They also are responsible for the understanding of fire precautions and evacuation by all members of their group. Initial guidance on these issues is available from the trustees. It is very strongly advised that any leader should have considered these issues, and if not familiar with Barmoor should arrange an inspection visit to confirm its suitability for their needs.
Water, electricity and fuel costs are included in the charges for staying at Barmoor.
The Trust is a non profit-making organisation and careful use of resources is appreciated. The upkeep of the house also relies on conscientious care and cleaning by occupiers which helps keep costs down.
Each bed is provided with one pillow and one fleece bedspread. Group members must bring their own sheets and a separate pillow case, and a duvet, warm sleeping bag or blankets. Groups should also bring their own personal towels, toilet paper and soap.
The nearest shops are at the market town of Kirkbymoorside, approximately 4 miles away, which will serve all your requirements. Groups bring their own basic supplies or arrange supermarket delivery.
Only ice cream and gifts can be had from the shops in Hutton-le-hole, but there is a pub.
If a group does not wish to do all their catering themselves, we may be able to put you in touch with local caterers who can offer a range of options.
If a group does not wish to do the final house cleaning themselves, we may be able to put you in touch with a local person who the trustees are happy to have do this, for an additional payment.
