A stunning country haven parcelled between the North York Moors and the dramatic North Sea, providing a divine retreat for big families and groups of friends.

This fantastic property is the ideal choice for guests seeking adventure without scrimping on luxury, sleeping eight guests and two dogs across four bedrooms. Based just 3 miles from the seaside town of Whitby, you could soon be scampering across the stunning North Yorkshire and Cleveland Heritage Coast. The owners have provided everything you need for a relaxing stay, including a magnificent welcome hamper brimming with goodies for the entire pack.

Set across three stories, this impressive property features an abundance of elegant details from sophisticated furnishing to quirky accessories. The comfortable lounge is sure to set tails wagging with its exposed stone walls, beamed ceilings and piece de resistance – a double-sided wood burner which also faces the kitchen/diner. Prepare lavish meals and dine in style with spectacular views from the windows. The bedrooms are scattered across the first and second floors, featuring crisp linen to lull you to sleep whilst Fido dozes peacefully downstairs. Younger guests will delight in the twin rooms at the top of the house, one of which has table football! Outside, the elevated garden is set on different levels with a choice of seating, perfect for lazy summer BBQ’s. There’s ample off-road parking for two cars, and the nearest shop and pub is within 2 miles.

Have a ball exploring the awe-inspiring ruins of Whitby Abbey, navigating clifftop trails or tucking in to piping hot fish and chips as you admire the pretty harbour. There’s plenty to do with Rover in tow, he can even accompany you on a popular ghost walk! Keen historians will also relish a trip to Robin Hood's Bay 6 miles away, which has a dark but fascinating smuggling past. Adventurous guests can walk here along the old railway line known as the ‘Cinder Path’ from Whitby.

Superb property in an idyllic and peaceful setting. There is virtually no traffic as the long lane is virtually traffic free except for residents in the scattering of houses that exist. True and fabulous escapism.

The cottage has been cobbled together by what looks like diy enthusiasts. The price Is 5 star but this holiday accommodation is 3 star at best, expect check in times that are too late in the day(5.30pm) and checkout times that are early. On a good note the surrounding area is perfect for a nice walk into Whitby.

Excellent location,spacious clean and dog friendly.Only negative comment is about the amount of dog fouling in the immediate neighbourhood of the cottage which made walking our dog a nightmare .This has nothing to do with the cottage but unfortunately made it impossible to enjoy the stay to its full potential.

We have just returned from a fabulous half term break at Cragg Cottage. We are 3 adults, 4 children plus dogs. Our stay was very comfortable and we really appreciated the little touches - thank you. The fire was a real bonus! We have stayed in many rentals between us and this was by far the most well equipped - everything we needed we found!! The lRead moreocation, though remote, was beautiful and surround by friendly faces. Garden not as secure for dogs as wed expected but wasnt a problem for us. Hide
