One of eight holiday properties on a small site of barn conversions, Goathland Cottage is well placed for exploring both the magnificent surrounding countryside and the pretty coastal town of Whitby.
Set in a quiet, tranquil location in an acre of ground which provides a safe environment for children to play in, the cottage has a large open plan living area, with character beams and a stone feature fireplace with a gas woodburner-effect stove, perfect for cooler evenings.
The living area incorporates a contemporary, well-equipped kitchen and dining table, with a stable door opening onto a small gravelled patio with seating, ideal for relaxing on a balmy summer's day whilst enjoying the superb views towards the river.
Upstairs are three bedrooms, all boasting views over fields and hills.

Explore the cobbled market square and narrow ginnels, climb the 199 steps up to the abbey or enjoy a boat trip along the coastline, all before stopping for the famous fish and chips!
