  • “Perfect cottage!”
    This is easily our favourite cottage! Seems in the middle of nowhere yet only 7 miles from Scarborough and 12 from Whitby, the cottage is set in extensive grounds overlooking beautiful Moors scenery. Inside it is so cozy, ideal for a couple, although it sleeps 4 two of the bedrooms are more suited to children I think. The cottage has been imaginatively restored from former farm buldings with quaint beams and a lovely wood burning stove, it has a smallish kitchen but one that is really well ...
    This is easily our favourite cottage! Seems in the middle of nowhere yet only 7 miles from Scarborough and 12 from Whitby, the cottage is set in extensive grounds overlooking beautiful Moors scenery. Inside it is so cozy, ideal for a couple, although it sleeps 4 two of the bedrooms are more suited to children I think. The cottage has been imaginatively restored from former farm buldings with quaint beams and a lovely wood burning stove, it has a smallish kitchen but one that is really well equipped with everything you could possibly need and no detail has been overlooked. It’s dog friendly too which is a bonus, The owners, who live on site, are lovely, so friendly and accommodating. This is our second visit and we hope to return one day.

The property

A pretty, stone semi-detached property, imaginatively converted from former farm buildings on the owners' smallholding, in the peaceful village of Staintondale, half way between Whitby and Scarborough.

Sympathetically restored, this Staintondale cottage is just perfect for a romantic holiday or a small family break.

This delightful Staintondale cottage oozes charm and character, with exposed timbers, boarded doors and quirky low windows.

Tastefully furnished, the cosy open plan living area has a warming woodburning stove, small dining area and well-equipped kitchen, providing very comfortable accommodation.

Outside this Staintondale cottage is a shared lawned area - a lovely spot to sit and relax in the sun and to take in the glorious panoramic views over open countryside, forestry and sea.

Guests are welcome to explore the fields and wood and meet the friendly Shetland ponies, the Highland cows and the black sheep!

Just down the road is the Pesky Husky trekking centre, while there are wonderful walks straight from the door of this Staintondale cottage.

Enjoy the many delights of the area including hidden coves and beaches, exhilarating cliff top walks and coastal villages such as Ravenscar and Robin Hood's Bay.

Be sure to allow time to drive five minutes to Ravenscar, where you can walk down to the foot of the cliffs to view the seal colony - a wonderful sight, not to be missed.

Ideally placed, a lovely Staintondale cottage to recharge the batteries all year round.

About the location

STAINTONDALE

Scarborough 8 miles; Robin Hood's Bay 10 miles; Whitby 13 miles.

Staintondale is a delightful scattered village on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, close to the coast. Midway between the fishing town of Whitby, with its famous Abbey, and the Spa town of Scarborough, with its theatres and entertainment, it is a haven of peace offering the best of both worlds. From Staintondale itself, a network of footpaths and bridleways can be enjoyed. A superb base from which to explore the region.
