  • “Beautiful cottage in a stunning location.”

    Enjoyed both the quiet days in the cottage and on the doorstep walks. Also the beautiful areas to drive too. Stunning coastline.

Sadler House Farm Cottages

These two superb stone barn conversions are peacefully nestled in the beautiful countryside of the North York Moors, 1.5 miles from the charming village of Goathland. Featuring in The Runaways film, these two extraordinary cottages offer a wonderful history and a warm and welcoming holiday base at any time of year. Sympathetically converted, these characterful Goathland cottages are ideal for families and friends to get together and explore the idyllic scenery on the doorstep, and are just a few minutes’ drive of the historic port of Whitby. Both cottages offer spacious living areas, with high pitched ceilings, exposed timbers and stonework. Finished to a high standard, these Goathland cottages boast central heating (underfloor downstairs in The Long Barn), with The Long Barn also providing two cosy woodburners. Several acres of communal grounds surround these delightful properties, with gated access over a stream and stunning views overlooking the steam railway, sheep pasture and moorland. A walker's haven, there are numerous public footpaths and trails to follow, whilst a lovely walk brings you into Goathland, otherwise known as Aidensfield from Heartbeat! Here, there are traditional tea rooms, several local inns serving food and the local village shop. Enjoy a walk down to the Mallyan Spout waterfall or follow the rail trail to Grosmont, from where one can return by steam train. An outing on the steam train from Goathland is a trip back in time as it winds its way through the moors to the delightful market town of Pickering or Whitby. Whitby offers many attractions, with its famous abbey, long, sandy beaches and narrow, cobbled streets. Guests are spoilt for choice with the numerous restaurants, coffee shops, independent shops and museums in this quaint town, as well as its charming harbour and renowned fish and chips. Two well-placed barns for a wonderful holiday all year round.

About the location


Whitby 9 miles.

The idyllic village of Goathland is set on the north eastern edge of the North York Moors National Park. It is surrounded by the rugged open moorlands which provide excellent walking country and on which sheep graze freely. The village has been popularised by the television programme Heartbeat. At the bottom of the village lies the station for the famous North York Moors Steam Railway. Here you can catch a train to Whitby or Pickering and relax as the train winds its way through the moors. Goathland is within easy reach of the East Coast towns of Whitby, Staithes, Robin Hoods Bay and Scarborough, making it a great holiday base.

Note - Property not suitable for infants.
