  • "Brilliant location and a lovely place to stay, owners were very friendly and welcoming."

    The accommodation was spotless and everything was catered for, definitely worth a visit and stay. The area was perfect for exploring, loads of literature in the accommodation for walking and places of interest.The pub in Cloughton called the Byherstones was amazing, the food was outstanding. The Sunday roast was exceptional but do book if you want to go, and the homemade pie was also fantastic, both times the meat melted in your mouth. The coastline is outstanding in the area would definitely come back again.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Loft."

    The accommodation and gardens were brilliant and the hosts Graham and Pippa were really welcoming and offered some great suggestions for local walks and pubs. We would definitely stay again and recommend a visit to one of their cottages. The only minor issue was that the WiFi signal was poor and we lost WiFi connection on several occasions, this is understandable in a rural location, but worth planning for!

  • "A wonderful stay in a very comfortable, well equipped holiday cottage."

    The location is perfect for visiting the coast between Bridlington and Saltburn and up onto the moors. The only slightly negative comment would be that the outside sitting area for The Loft needed a bit of TLC.

  • "A beautiful property, so cosy and decorated to a high standard."

    There are plenty of practical items and a selection of books, DVDs and even some binoculars for watching the local wildlife. The grounds are wonderful, perfect for an evening stroll. Unfortunately we weren’t blessed with good weather so we didn’t have much chance to enjoy, however we did get to meet the two adorable Highland cows. The Loft is situated between Scarborough and Whitby, but not too far from Staithes, Robin Hood’s Bay and the picturesque Sandsend (I would definitely recommend a visit!). The Clevelend Way walk from Ravenscar to Robin Hood’s Bay is lovely too - very hilly, but the views are wonderful. Also not far away is the pretty Falling Foss waterfall and tea gardens. A perfect place to just sit, observe and listen to nature. The owners, Pippa and Graham, are very friendly and helpful and they are available if you need anything. They they have a very friendly dog too, who greeted us like old friends! We had a lovely time whilst we were there (we had to leave early due to a family emergency) but the few days we had there were appreciated and allowed us to recharge our batteries in a relaxing, pretty and comfortable environment. I would thoroughly recommend a visit to The Loft. Thank you.

    It was for my birthday that happened to coincide with the Coronation. My partner and I have a hectic job involving shift work. We appreciated the location, very beautiful and quiet. The scenery is gorgeous. Friendly welcoming hosts. Thanks Graham and Pippa. The loft was lovely, just the right size for a couple. Has all the facilities you need. Only thing missing is a washing machine. Not that we needed one. Very clean and well presented, great use of space. Wi-fi during our stay was a bit hit and miss. Great location for exploring local area. Will definitely stay again when back up in North Yorkshire.

Graham and Pippa had thought of everything and we’re very friendly. They provided coffee, tea, milk and a chocolate treat which was a nice and thoughtful touch. The small town of Staintondale is close to Scarborough and Whitby and an excellent location to explore North Yorkshire.

  • "A lovely cottage with all amenities thought of by the hosts."

    There were fresh baked goods on arrival and even a bottle of milk! With gorgeous scenery all around, The Loft was a wonderfully cosy place to snuggle up after a day of exploring the local coastline, and listen to the wind howling outside... Graham was kind enough to show me his extensive fossil collection when I told him that the natural history of the area was a huge draw for me. He told us good walks to take, places to eat, places to hunt for fossils and he even gave me a couple that he found on the beach! The only thing that I would change; and it really is a minor detail!- a small sofa or cuddle chair to replace the tub chairs, as we didn't find them particularly comfortable. We'd love to return in the high season!

The property

A superb, first floor studio barn conversion, set amidst stunning countryside on the owners' smallholding, in the sleepy village of Staintondale, between Whitby and Scarborough.

Sympathetically converted from a stone and pantile granary, this Staintondale cottage offers a luxurious romantic hideaway for couples wanting tranquillity and privacy within a spectacular wildlife environment.

Beautifully appointed throughout, this Staintondale cottage exudes style and character, with exposed beams, aged timber floors and quirky low windows.

The spacious studio-style room boasts high quality furnishings, a cosy and comfortable sitting area and a sumptuous super king-size bed, an absolute delight to sink into at the end of the day!

The separate country style kitchen of this Staintondale cottage has handmade, bespoke cupboards, granite worktops and a Belfast sink, with a cosy and cheerful dining area overlooking fields.

With great attention to detail throughout, this well-equipped Staintondale cottage seamlessly combines tradition with modern comforts, providing an exceptional holiday home, with glorious, panoramic views towards the coast, over forestry and rolling countryside.

Wander around the 14 acres of grounds and fields and you may be lucky enough to see roe deer on the edge of the wood, or foxes drinking by the pond.

Guests are welcome to comb the friendly highland cows and Shetland ponies!

From this Staintondale cottage, there are fantastic walking opportunities from the door, with the Cleveland Way and the Cinder Track both within a 15 minute walk.

Not to be missed is the five minute drive to Ravenscar, where you can walk down to the foot of the cliffs to view the resident seal colony; an incredible sight all year round.

Ideally placed, a short drive brings you to the historic seaside port of Whitby, famous for its imposing abbey, cobbled narrow streets and wonderful fish and chips!

Visit nearby Grosmont and experience a trip back in time on the steam railway, or explore the pretty inland villages such as Goathland (Aidensfield) and the market towns of Pickering and Malton.

With such a wealth of attractions in the area, your first visit to this gem of a property will not be your last!
