The Dawnay Estates


The Dawnay Estates consists of a group of thriving rural businesses based in some of the most beautiful countryside in Yorkshire. The Estates are managed with a long term view which includes an acute recognition of the responsibility to maintain the environment. This responsibility goes hand in hand with a commercial and innovative approach to business.

Once visited never forgotten – my family have been looking after this little corner of England for almost 350 years.
