The property

Robin Hood's Bay 3 miles.

This fabulous and traditional Yorkshire farmhouse is nestled in an idyllic and tranquil location at Boggle Hole, just along the beach from the historic fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay.

Situated on a small complex at South House Farm, the property is set in private, south-facing gardens with panoramic views towards Robin Hood’s Bay and Ravenscar, with just a five minute walk down the hill to the delightful sandy cove of Boggle Hole.

With characterful, spacious rooms, there is a stone-flagged entrance, with a handy boot room, utility and cloakroom leading off.

The well-equipped country kitchen has a large electric traditional style range cooker with induction hob ideal for cooking for large family groups and a central solid beech dining table, where you can sit and chat whilst preparing meals.

There is a large separate hall with solid oak dining table which seats 8 people in high-backed stylish fabric chairs.

The elegant and bright sitting room with its beautiful views leads from the dining hall.

Here the ample comfortable seating surrounds a replica cast-iron real effect electric stove.

A French door leads from the sitting room onto the private terrace and gardens.

On the first floor there are four spacious bedrooms, with a charming super king-size room benefiting from an en-suite shower room and dressing room, while the single room is a child's delight.

The modern family bathroom offers a double basin, shower and a gorgeous free-standing bath.

Most of the bedrooms have superb views over the sea and stretching along the coastline.

The second floor has a beamed open plan area, which is ideal for a family group, with the double bedroom adjoining a twin room, with an en-suite bathroom leading from the double room.

Outside, the beautiful garden provides a peaceful haven, plus wooded valleys and streams lie in the surrounding farmland with an abundance of wildlife to enjoy, including roe deer and nesting birds.

The beach at Boggle Hole is renowned for fossil hunting and rock pooling and historically this cove was where smugglers landed their contraband.

The beach stretches from the ancient fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay to the spectacular cliffs of Ravenscar.

Explore the pretty cobbled alleyways and enjoy a coffee or cream tea in one of the traditional tea rooms in Robin Hood's Bay.

A few miles drive brings you to Whitby, with a tangle of narrow streets, a cobbled market place and the ruins of St. Hilda's Abbey.

A superb property for a wonderful and memorable family holiday. South House Farm holiday cottages takes pride in helping sustain the environment within the North Yorkshire Moors national park.

With support from our guests, we can help maintain South House Farm holiday cottages as a green tourism business. Our first step to looking towards a greener future was to update the domestic sewerage system to a biologically and environmentally efficient system some years ago.

Following this change we continued to incorporate the sustainability concept by installing a bio mass boiler.

This replaced the old system of individual oil fired boilers that had previously provided heat for the cottages and the farmhouse.

More recently, we reduced our carbon footprint further by installing solar panels, which now help provide us with low cost, low carbon electricity for our family and guests - we export any surplus to the National Grid. Another project which has evolved over the last 20 years at South House Farm is the natural organic approach we have taken to the surrounding farmland, which over time has provided a habitat for a plethora of birds, small mammals, insects flora and fauna which can be enjoyed by all our visitors.

A more ambitious plan of ours for the future is to expand our facilities to encourage cyclists to visit and enjoy our beautiful county.

We hope that these small contributions within the business will help you appreciate your surroundings more and that you support our green ethos for South House Farm.

About the location

Robin Hood's Bay, with its narrow cobbled streets and quaint cottages, is one of the most picturesque villages on the English coastline. Situated between Scarborough and Whitby, this charming old fishing village is to be found nestling at the edge of a wide sweeping bay backed by spectacular cliffs and dramatic moorland scenery, and was once home to author Leo Walmsley. All holidaymakers will love the beach and its cliff-top walks, whilst more serious walkers will enjoy the many long distance trails that pass through the Cleveland Way, the Lyke Wake Walk and the Coast to Coast walks which all take in Robin Hood’s Bay. The village amenities are superb, with charming alleyways to explore and plenty of places to rest, relax and take refreshment. A perfect base for enjoying the Yorkshire Coast.
