A Grade II-listed former school house is the essence of heart-warming Yorkshire country living, offering spacious accommodation for six guests, enjoying both rural and coastal walks nearby.

This cottage is nestled in the quaint Fylingthorpe, a village with a traditional pub serving meals and a convenience store. It’s less than a mile from Robin Hood’s Bay, a picturesque old fishing village on the Heritage Coast of the North York Moors, which is a fantastic place for adults and children alike – don’t forget to visit the dog-friendly sandy beach. Meander the cobbled streets of the vibrant village, with a wide range of cafes, pubs, restaurants, small shops and places to explore, as well as many stunning coastal and country walks, cycle paths and bridleways right on the doorstep. Pick a section of the cinder track, an off-route trail for cycling, and travel north to Whitby (6 miles) or south to Scarborough (15 miles).

A fine, Grade II-listed, former school house crammed with character behind its stone exterior retaining much of its period charm such as pretty mullioned windows, fireplaces and spirelet. Step through the charming front door and be welcomed into a hallway, then head through to the bespoke kitchen to find all your catering essentials with electric hob and oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. Enjoy your meal in the dining room warmed by the heat of the wood burner, which creates a very cosy feel. After dinner, get even cosier in the lounge; here you can relax upon an evening, catching up on your favourite shows courtesy of the smart TV, with an alluring wood burner to warm you up. Completing the ground floor is a separate WC. As the day turns to night, climb the stairs and choose between three well-appointed bedrooms, two king-size and one twin room. There are two bathrooms; a shower room with a walk-in shower, and a bathroom with bath, separate shower, WC and fabulous views.

Enjoy your morning brew outside in the small courtyard. The outside utility room is a handy area complete with an outdoor shower and washing machine – perfect if you, or your furry companion return from the beach with lots of sand. On-street parking outside, subject to availability.

The situation of this house is perfect and there is an easy and scenic walk to the beach at Robin Hoods Bay. The local playground is just 2 minutes away. The house was a good home from home with a welcoming welcome pack and comfy beds.

A beautiful home and very well equipped. The arrival/welcome treats were an extra special touch that made us feel so welcome. The location is lovely albeit a little hilly. Lots to see and do for all ages. We particularly enjoyed a visit to the North Yorkshire Water Park.

The school house was outstanding. We all really enjoyed staying in this lovely home. Freddie the pooch was also well catered for. The decor was lovely and a fabulous welcome pack/ dog treats on arrival. Would highly recommend. Great spot to stay in so very close to Robin Hoods Bay.

Newly renovated, with modern fittings but remaining true to its roots in terms of style, this beautiful grade 2 listed old school is formidable. In a superb location, within walking distance of the amazing Robin Hoods Bay. There is plenty of room, the most well stocked kitchen we have ever been in, comfortable beds and one of the most gorgeous bathRead morerooms with a shower that has views to die for. A wonderful family/friends home in the heart of Yorkshire. Loved it. Thank you. Hide
