  • “The Loft provided excellent accommodation and on a particularly cold week provided a wonderfully warm place to retreat to every evening.”

    Great walking straight from the door and we also enjoyed exploring both Scarborough and Whitby which are close by. Graham and Pippa were very welcoming and we hope to return next year.

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!

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.
