This cosy barn conversion was refurbished to create a stylish and welcoming property perfect for a romantic countryside getaway, close to the coast at Robin Hood’s Bay.

Situated down a peaceful country lane and surrounded by open countryside, this property provides the chance to get away from it all but with the tea rooms, shops, pubs and beach at Robin Hood’s Bay less than 3 miles away. Outdoor-lovers and dog-walkers will be pleased to know that the Cinder Track is a similar distance away and follows the former railway line from Scarborough to Whitby, offering fresh sea air and stunning coastal views.

Step into the property, where a tiled floor leads through to the open plan downstairs accommodation. The lounge area is the perfect place for you to relax, with a comfy sofa just right for two to snuggle up in front of the woodburner while enjoying treats from the welcome hamper. Reclaimed pine floors blend with quirky decor to create a homely atmosphere. You can unwind in the evenings with the TV/DVD player or unplug with the help of books and board games. The spacious kitchen has everything you need to create a meal with delicious Yorkshire produce, including an oven, a gas hob and a dishwasher, while the dining table has ample space to enjoy a meal together. The stylish bathroom is also downstairs and includes a feature claw-foot bath, perfect for you to luxuriate in. Open staircase with large, south-facing window leads to the light and airy double bedroom, complete with storage and a desk.

Outside, you can enjoy the open countryside views from the south-facing courtyard, which is shared with a neighbouring cottage. Ample off-road parking is available outside the property.

On arrival we were extremely pleased with the cleanliness of the cottage and the welcome pack was a wonderful bonus. Fantastic location to explore the local areas, great to be able to go straight out and walk the dogs on the Moors ( been home a day and they're still exhausted ) If you're looking for a dog friendly place to stay look no further. We Read morecould relax knowing that they were welcome and there is not really anything that they could damage. Definitely rebook if visiting the area again Hide

Perfect location for seeing both the coast and the moor. Very quiet and secluded with footpaths an easy reach from the house and just a short drive into Robin Hoods Bay. Everything seemed very accessible. The cottage itself was comfortable and cosy. Lovely log burner for colder evenings and well equipped. It has been well maintained and was very clRead moreean. Very dog friendly too. Hide

This was the best holiday cottage we have stayed in. There were many little things that were an added bonus; the dog box, the little torches, the throws on the furniture..... Our cocker spaniels loved it too ! It is in an ideal location as there are so many places to visit nearby. We would have loved to stay another week.

The cottage was lovely. It was a bit difficult to find and we had to ring up for directions. It was hidden away down off of the main road. Cottage was cosy, clean, and contained everything that we needed. We used the log burner most nights, not because it was cold, but it gave a cosy glow. The dog who is blind was very comfortable inside and it wasRead more easy to let him out for a wee, or walk him up the lane. Lovely, lovely accomodation. Hide

Ideally situated in the moor away from crowds but just a stones throw from the beach. Great for walking dog, but no direct access from cottage to beach without a substantial stretch on the road.
