  • "Fantastic location and fabulous cottage."

    Homely, warm, cosy. Everything you needed was there. Beds were amazing. The space of rooms was perfect and having a spacious hallway and great utility room after walks out with coats and boots and dog was great. Truly home from home in every way. Kids loved the train going passed and recommend the train journey too and spotting cottage too.

  • "We could only fit three nights in but loved every minute, the Long Barn was fantastic and was beautifully furnished to a very high standard."

    We have already recommended it to our neighbours, family and friends. Watching the steam train pass the end of the garden was a real treat. We will return for a longer break at some stage.

  • "The long barn was the most outstanding property we've ever stayed in!"

    A lovely welcoming tray of coffee, tea, biscuits and freshly laid eggs, the property was spotlessly clean, equipt with everything you could possibly need. The beds were pure luxury and to wake up to such superb countryside views every day was just amazing. We loved seeing the steam train go past the end of the garden too... Simply wonderful! Thank you for such a memorable stay

  • "Wow! This place is just fantastic."

    The location is great for any walking and sight seeing and with the train running at the bottom of the garden twice a day it was always a pleasure to see the passengers waving at us. The facilities are everything you would ever want for during any stay, a home-from-home cottage. The equipment level and quality of the items were great. Our family had a superb week and we would all recommend this property, it has and is everything you’ll need.

  • "The barn was lovely with the added bonus of being able to watch the steam trains go past every day."

    The barn itself was well equipped with everything you could want. Honey our 2 year old Cockerpoo certainly loved all the walks even if she could not go off her lead because we were surrounded by sheep. The barn was exceptionally clean and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Thank you for a lovely stay .

  • "The Long Barn at Goathland was the perfect place our family holiday."

    The location was stunning and a starting point for many wonderful walks over the moors, along the local trails, to beautiful waterfalls and rivers, and pretty villages. The highlight for us was the garden, overlooking the valley, with the steam trains passing by. The house itself was extremely comfortable and ideal for family cooking sessions and cosy nights in. The owners were helpful when needed but unobtrusive. Thank you John and Lyn for a lovely stay and for the ‘welcome gifts’

  • "This was a beautiful barn with fantastic hosts."

    If you are travelling with anyone with limited mobility who is planning on using the downstairs bedroom (which has stunning views) and downstairs wetroom and toilet, be aware the three steps mentioned in the posting are tall and there is no rail. We got round this by buying a commode from a shop in Scarborough and helping with the steps. Would still recommend this gorgeous barn to everyone. Stunning and very comfortable.

    The only negative was the downstairs toilet was a combined wet room which served the downstairs bedroom so if you needed the toilet after someone had showered you had to go upstairs or get wet feet.It was also a lot smaller compared to the bathrooms upstairs

  • "This was our fourth time at this lovely cottage."

    Slight niggle is the water pressure results in a weak shower in the upstairs bathrooms but I guess that’s related to the location and nature of the water supply. Cottage was lovely and clean on arrival and the owners are on site and quickly attend to any issues.

  • "Was listed as having 3 bathrooms which we had put in as a search criteria as we were 3 couples holidaying together."

    The downstairs toilet had a small shower/wet room which couldn't be used as such because it would have meant the toilet would have got soaked.

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.
