This property is an ideal base for friends and family to come together to explore the North Yorkshire Coastline, with a cafe on site and overlooking the ancient moat, there is no need to venture far.

It’s not every day you get to have a family reunion in a house with a moat. This 15th-century barn with traditional country rooms and gardens is perfect for an extended family celebration. With five bedrooms, it sleeps 10 in total and there are more en-suite bathrooms than you can shake a stick at. And speaking of sticks — the secluded gardens are a dream for an active dog.

 

Enter through the pretty courtyard into the cheery kitchen and dining room, all set up for those massive family breakfasts. Head through into the lounge which has cosy sofas and reading chairs, and French doors leading out to the moat. Two double bedrooms are tucked away on the ground level, one with an en-suite bathroom. A pair of staircases take you up to three more bright and charming bedrooms, each with an en-suite, so the biggest fun of the trip might be playing musical bedrooms.

 

The cottage sits on extensive grounds and gardens for you to roam, and there’s even a cafe on-site, so you could be perfectly content to spend your holiday within the moat. But if you fancy exploring the North Yorkshire countryside and coast, there are ample opportunities. First, a network of North York Moors footpaths can be accessed from the property itself. No need to drive, just get your hiking boots on and set off. The village of Staithes is also on your doorstep. A quaint fishing village with a harbour and sandy beaches just a mile’s walk away, it’s the perfect stretch to let the dog loose and enjoy the sea air. Then, set off on the Staithes to Rutland Bay path, along cliffs and headland, and find your own way into the North York Moors.

There are ongoing renovations close to, but not directly affecting the cottage – the owner ensures any works are considerately timed so that they do no disturb guests.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This is an pleasant holiday cottage with comfortable bedrooms and modern bathrooms/ showers. It is part of an historic set of buildings, in a beautiful part of the country, well situated for visiting the Yorkshire coast and North Yorkshire Moors. The on-site cafe and antiques centre are an asset.

A delightful property, clean and comfortable with plenty of room, that said the kitchen would be a tight squeeze for 10 people due to the size of the table. Easy access to Staithes and some lovely walks from the doorstep.

Some furniture is a bit shabby. Some bathrooms could be greatly improved by hanging doors instead of curtains! Kitchen table is a squeeze when seating more than 8 people.

This was a great cottage for a large family holiday. There is an excellent co-op within walking district. We saw deer, rabbits, pheasants, goats. The walks around are lovely. The cafe next door offers excellent hospitality. Staithes is very friendly.

We enjoyed our stay at the property - the living room was cosy and had a nice feel, the bedrooms were well decorated and comfortable. The location was great and we loved the on site cafe.

The cottage is very cosy and once it was clear how to work the heating it was nice and warm. The location is very good with various options for activities. The owner is particularly pleasant and helpful. The kitchen is the one downfall and needs to be upgraded and / or extended but we overcame this and enjoyed our stay very much.
