Spangle and Rosecombe Cottages have been converted from farm buildings to provide holiday accommodation. Ground source energy provides the underfloor heating beneath tiled floors, ensuring a comfortable and even temperature throughout. Stylishly furnished and decorated, Spangle Cottage offers a Master galleried bedroom and twin room, whilst Rosecombe provides an unusual but delightful open plan theme on the first floor with a galleried landing between the bedrooms with King size and twin beds respectively which can remain open or each be sectioned off with discreetly placed folding doors for privacy.
Nestling in an elevated position in the picturesque hamlet of Borrowby, perched above Borrowby Dale, the cottages afford wonderful views to the large expanse of beautiful East Yorkshire coastline, with Staithes (the former home of Captain James Cook) in the distance. Within 200 yards of the cottages, an equestrian centre which is open Tuesday to Sunday provides trekking for all ages and abilities and  from horseback you can enjoy the breathtaking views. Excellent footpath walks are available direct from the door taking you through heather strewn moors and onto the Heritage coastline. Shop 3 miles, pub 1½ mile and restaurant 1½ mile
