Description

Located on a traditional working beef farm in a small courtyard and close to the ever popular Falling Foss Falls and Sneaton Forest, just over five miles from the ancient sea port of Whitby. This stone built barn conversion offers comfortable, spacious accommodation for two people. It is in an ideal location for exploring the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and the Heritage coast of Yorkshire. Ramblers and cyclists will love the area with bridleways and cycle tracks starting from the door. There are footpaths that lead into the forest and down to the local beauty spot of Falling Foss waterfall where you can also enjoy a cup of tea at the tearooms, whilst enjoying the spectacular view. The surrounding, tranquil woodland is excellent for all the family to enjoy with an abundance of wildlife to make a holiday here a truly memorable one.

Whitby is a great day out for all the family where you can see the Abbey and St. Mary’s Church perched on the cliff top after climbing the famous 199 steps, or take a trip out on one of the pleasure boats and view Whitby in all its glory from the sea and harbour. There are also many events going on all year round including Whitby’s own regatta, folk week, music weekends and goth weekends which offer something to please everyone. A visit to Robin Hoods Bay is certainly a day to remember. This unspoilt village nestles on the cliffs of the North York Moors National Park Heritage coast and is a mix of cobbled, narrow streets and alleyways with individual shops, pubs and tearooms, and a lovely beach where you can enjoy fossil hunting and rock pooling.

Beech Cottage can be booked together with Newton House Farm (CC241174), Sycamore Cottage (CC243078) and Oak Cottage (CC243118) to accommodate up to 24 guests.

About the local area

Found on North Yorkshire's east coast, Whitby is a picturesque seaside town brimming with maritime history and rich cultural heritage. Surrounded by the North York Moors National Park and beautiful coastline, the town and its nearby areas are brimming with attractions.

Nestled in valley at the mouth of the Esk River, Whitby is a great place to visit, with steep winding streets and little boutique shops selling local delicacies and handicrafts. Built on both river banks, it is unified by its landmark swing bridge that spans the water.

Visit the port where Captain Cook first took to the seas, the harbour framed by Grade II listed piers, each with its own lighthouse. Explore the Whitby Abbey ruins, home to the ancient poet Caedmon and St Mary's Church, which dominate the east bank; climb the 199 'Church Steps' to reach the graveyard on the cliff top.

The coastline is a part of the 'Jurassic Coast', renowned for its fossils. In Whitby, fossilised dinosaur footprints are found imprinted on the beach. To see a larger selection of local fossils, visit the Rotunda Museum in nearby Scarborough.

Whitby is small but culturally rich. There are museums, art galleries and also the Pavilion Theatre that hosts a range of events in the summer and the Bram Stoker Film Festival every October. A place of literary traditions it was, amongst other things, used as the setting for 'Dracula'.

There is a yearly regatta every August and numerous sea and land activities for adventurers, from the Cleveland Way to windsurfing and diving off the shore.
