Welcome to The Doodales – our website covering Doodale Cottage, Barr Farm, Highland Beef from Old Malton and the Doodale Highlanders.
Mid way between York and the east coast, close to the beautiful North York Moors, the Yorkshire Wolds and the Howardian Hills is an area marked on maps as The Doodales. This area was once the location for the mediaeval fish ponds of Malton Priory (a Gilbertine Monastery) in Old Malton. Today it is an overgrown area of woodland designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Our farm, Barr Farm, adjoins this area and our Highland Cattle graze the Abbey Ings next to the Doodales.
