Enjoy a unique escape and embrace this rustic former Mulgrave Estate School with your loved ones, in this dreamy coastal haven backed by the North York Moors.

Let the patter of feet and paws race to explore this homely North Yorkshire property. Situated 200 yards from the beach, you’ll be sniffing the salty air in no time. An ice cream van is helpfully situated a 100-yards up the road from Sandsend (towards Whitby) where you descend some steps for a dog-friendly beach walk (of up to 2.5 miles). A truly unique location, you also have stunning woodland surrounding you, your four-pawed pals will enjoy getting to know the woodland wildlife. With a welcome hamper full of goodies waiting for you on arrival, you will feel right at home.

This attractive property welcomes you with its crisp, tranquil spaces. Its original loft-style windows flood the rooms with light. You will feel the coastal relaxation vibes in the open plan kitchen/lounge/diner’s double height ceilings with panelled wooden walls, perfect to relax with a morning coffee as you plan the day ahead. Whip up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen and share stories with loved ones as little ones and their waggy-tailed friends run off steam on the large lawn with seating area. There is room for all on the plush sofas next to a warming wood burner. Cosy up and watch a film, with snoozing pups at your feet, it’s a slice of holiday heaven. Feeling ready for bed? An elegant king-size and twin on the ground floor (along with a large family bathroom) and a plush double set in the eaves. Deep steps lead from this bedroom to a separate lounge and en-suite bathroom, it’s the perfect place to escape family life and sink into a steaming bubble bath.

Venture further inland to admire the North Yorkshire Moors tallest waterfall, Mallyan Spout (11 miles away) by completing a 3-mile round trip from Goathland village.

Be aware of two lots of steps between the upstairs bedroom and bathroom. Not good for elderly or people with disabilities. Also steep steps up to the main door.

We had a lovely stay recently at this property. The location is beautiful and the property charming. The living, dining and kitchen space is generous, and the bedrooms suited us well. The owners are friendly and helpful, and the welcome basket is a really nice touch. We liked it so much, we've booked again for next year.

Lovely cottage and welcome pack was a surprise. Very well placed and all amenities catered for. The owners were very helpful and approachable and offered assistance we needed.
