    Vacancy - Full time Estate Woodman Required

    An exciting opportunity to join our growing team and contribute to the forestry department at the Mulgrave Estate, a large and diverse rural Estate located on the North Yorkshire Coast, in the North York Moors National Park. The Estate extends to 6,000 hectares and has 1,000 hectares of woodland and forestry.

    The trees and woodland at Mulgrave form an integral part of the landscape, requiring sustainable forest management to preserve and enhance its qualities. The long-term vision is to protect, sustain and develop our natural capital. Our woodland management policies are to promote a structurally diverse woodland with a mix of species, supporting a diverse forest capital, whilst providing a wide range of environmental, economic, and social benefits.

    We are also working on significant plans for over 250 hectares of new woodland creation across the Estate.

    The successful candidate will have experience in the woodland and forestry sector. You will also be well organised, adaptable, reliable and can work with enthusiasm, flexibility, and commitment. In view of the varied content of the role, a background of having worked on a rural Estate would be helpful but is not essential. The individual will be a supportive team player, who is engaging, self-motivated and thrives in working with others but equally alone. Good communication skills are essential.

  • New Holiday Home - The Old Guard House, Goldsborough nr Whitby

    New Holiday Home - The Old Guard House, Goldsborough nr Whitby

    The Old Guard House has been carefully restored and converted into a luxury 5-bedroom holiday home over the last 18 months. The original building has been furnished in the style of the 1940s with traditional wallpaper, vintage furniture, and wall art displaying WWII British propaganda and governmental advice. The west-facing upper balcony has also been restored, allowing guests to enjoy a view of the farmland and coastal bays that run along this sensational coast. An extension in same style as the original building has also been added in order to take full advantage of the location. This contains the kitchen/living area, which has been designed for maximum comfort and lounging opportunities! Equipped with a multifuel burner, large TV and huge squishy sofas this is the ‘mess room’ of the house. Glass doors take up almost one entire wall and provide spectacular sea views. These lead out to the private garden and patio, while discreet hedging and fencing alongside the property offer complete privacy to our guests.

  • Tye Trophy Award for Mulgrave Estate

    Tye Trophy Award for Mulgrave Estate

    The Estate was awarded the runner up prize in for the prestigious Tye Trophy competition at the Great Yorkshire Show on Wednesday. The Yorkshire Agricultural Society nominated our Home Farm as one of the best examples of conservation farming in the northern region. The Tye Trophy recognises the contribution of farmers in the north of England to conservation and environmental improvement on a commercial farm.

    The award was presented by Simon Theakston, President of the Yorkshire Agricultural Society for the work the Estate has undertaken over the last 5 years. Several important wildlife habitats have been brought back into environmental management since 2018 including moorland where drainage grips have been blocked to re wet the moor, introducing conservation grazing using native breeds to benefit upland waders such as Curlew and Lapwing, drilling 277 acres of winter bird food , pollen and nectar mixes and over winter stubbles for farmland birds and digging 15 ponds and scrapes on marginal land for freshwater pond species. Restoring 10,000m of traditional field boundaries such as dry stone walls and hedgerows have been undertaken along with planting 27,500 native trees on non- productive farmland. Barn Owls are now a common sight around the farm after installing 12 nest boxes in various farm buildings across the Estate. We now have 12 rainwater harvesters holding 360,000 litres of rainwater from the roofs of the farm buildings and are about to install a solar panel array on the grain sheds to make us more energy sustainable in the future. We are primarily a commercial farm growing over 1,000 acres of cereals with Winter Wheat, Spring and Winter Barley and Oil Seed Rape grown in rotation around the fields. However, every opportunity is taken to maintain and encourage wildlife to the farm wherever possible and we will continue to adopt this approach in the future.
