Stoney Cottage is an attractive, spacious, yet cosy cottage which was formerly part of a lemonade factory dating back to the 1800s. It has been restored to a very good standard creating charm and character, making it a wonderful place for a holiday or romantic escape. It has a lovely open plan kitchen/dining room with a centre island and feature beams. The comfortable living room has an inglenook fireplace with an electric stove effect fire which you can relax in front of after a day walking along the nearby Heritage coastline or exploring the beautiful North York Moors National Park further inland.
Stoney Cottage is ideal for both couples and families looking to explore this beautiful coastline. It is also ideal for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits, with an abundance of footpath and cliff walks in the immediate area, including the famous 110-mile Cleveland Way, where you can walk along the cliff tops and enjoy the stunning scenery en route to the quaint fishing village of Staithes, Runswick Bay, Sandsend and then on to the bustling fishing port of Whitby. Whitby itself makes an excellent day out, where you will find plenty to do, with an abundance of attractions to suit all ages, along with an excellent selection of shops and cafés in both the new and old towns. Keep an eye out for the regular themed events and festivals, from the bi-annual Goth weekender to the wonderful folk week. From Whitby, you can take the steam train and view the dramatic scenery of the North York Moors as well as the quaint little villages of Grosmont, Goathland (alias Aidensfield in the TV series ‘Heartbeat’) and Levisham, reaching its final destination at Pickering.
The beautiful Victorian resort of Saltburn is only 5 miles away with its own cliff lift (dating back to 1884), famous pier (the most northerly surviving British pier), Smugglers Heritage Centre and promenade, which is a great place to enjoy a leisurely stroll on a fine evening. For birdwatchers there is an RSPB bird sanctuary to the north and the National Park centre at Danby is well worth a visit. The area is ideal for walkers, hikers and birdwatchers, whilst there is easy access to the beach for surfers and families. When the weather is less clement, you can visit the swimming pool and leisure centre, which are both within walking distance. If it’s the coast you desire and want to leave the car behind, there are regular buses stopping in the villages of Staithes, Runswick and Sandsend en route to Whitby. Further afield you will find the Victorian seaside resort of Scarborough and the medieval walled city of York, as well as Beamish Museum and the Yorkshire Dales, which are just an hour’s drive away. Beach 2 miles. Shops 300 yards, pub 200 yards, restaurant 1 mile.

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.

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'.
