  • "Lovely property close to the coast."

    Had a great relaxing week away, visiting nearby coastal villages. The conservatory was great for relaxing in, our dog loved it. The parking space was great and the patio area was nice if only the weather had been, so we could have used it.

  • "I would like to thank Jackie for being so considerate and contacting us personally to advise she had made some alterations which meant she no longer had a bath at the property."

    Because there was a 2 year old in our group she advised she would ensure there was a child’s bath available which was perfect and loved by my granddaughter. This was our second visit to Barn Cottage and hopefully won’t be the last. The cottage and location are both perfect.

    Hi Carol, thankyou so much for taking the time to leave a review. Your kind words are very much appreciated. I'm so glad you all love the cottage, and the new baby bath was a hit. Thanks again Jacky X Property Owner

    The owner obviously works hard at making you feel welcome. It’s a small house but very comfortable & a pleasure to stay there. A stride to 2 local pubs & a lovely walk to Runswick bay & Staithes. We had a wonderful holiday. We did miss a hose pipe to wash our doggie down properly but obviously very minor! ( there is an outdoor tap) Would highly recommend

    Hi Deborah, thankyou for your kind review, I really appreciate you taking the time and for your feedback. Best regards Jacky Property Owner

    It was everything we hoped it would be, and more. I cannot fault anything. It had everything we needed, and some things we didn't know we needed. It was super clean. Communication from the property owner was spot on. Location is fantastic. We will definitely be returning. Thank you.

    It was very well equipped with everything you need for a good holiday. The sitting room was very cosy and I loved the conservatory which went right across the back of the house. Beds were comfortable as we're the sofas downstairs. Good off road parking for one car. The pub just across the road is worth a visit, or two.

  • "Such a lovely spacious cottage."

    Well equipped, includes everything you could want from home - home comforts to everyday essentials, The patio garden is small but big enough and equipped (with tables and chairs)for comfortable eating or just sitting relaxing and is enclosed for those wanting to bring their furry friend. The cottage also has a large conservatory with plenty family board games and books. Included in this property are lots of information about places to visit. The cottage is also in a great location with plenty places for walks. Definitely recommend this cottage Absolutely fantastic the owner has gone out of her way to make it perfect.

    Everything you could wish for in a holiday let. A great base to explore the moors, market towns, quaint villages and obviously the coast. One of the best-equipped kitchens we've had the pleasure of using - no need for the sharp kitchen knife (unused) I always take along as in my experience most places don't have one.

    The only thing that it would benefit from is dark curtains at each bedroom window, as it is so light with the white blinds only. Hinderwell is my favourite holiday village.

  • "We could not use conservatory door due to the lock not working."

    We did report it to the owner and it appears to be an on going problem. We noticed that a valve cover was missing by front door which could be a problem if a child fell on it. The standard of bedding in main bedroom was poor and stained, we also mentioned this to owner. These faults above did not spoil our holiday we loved the place and location. I just feel it would help future occupants.

    Thank you for your valued feedback. I am sure that you would agree that when we spoke I was horrified to hear about marks on the sheets. I did offer, to the point of insistance, that we change them straight away, however, I was told that there was absolutely no need to, and it wasnt a problem. We have NEVER had any reports of ANY marks on the sheets at any other time. The conservatory door is a problem in hot weather due to it being south facing. The internal doors do however secure the property, and the conservatory door does lock once the full heat of the day has reduced. We are tyring our very best to get this resolved ASAP. New bedding has arrived to replace any older sets. Property Owner

  • "What a find!"

    Stayed here a couple of weeks ago for a week of switch off and relaxing with my husband and dog, and Barn Cottage was perfect! Such a cosy home from home, perfect after cold dog walks to come back and get snug in front of a film. Kitchen very well equipped, and all communication from Jackie was lovely and very quick. Walking distance to 2 pubs, 15 min walk to the coastal path where you can do a loop back to Hinderwell. Would highly recommend Saltburn for a walk down the beach and chips on the sea (best fish & chips we’ve had in a long time). Whitby was only 10/15 mins to drive to, lots of lovely little shops and a harbour, very dog friendly. Have already told all our friends and family about it! Will absolutely be back in the future. Thank you for such a wonderful week.

  • "Jackie's barn conversion cottage' is exceptional."

    A home from home in every aspect. From outside the property you sense an overwhelming feeling of peacefulness. On entry your greeted with a sense of home comfort and luxury. The home as everything you could possibly need. I just had my Xmas and new year holiday here and I have never been more comfortable and happier with location and the overwhelming joy of a gorgeous home that suits everyone in your group. I took my best friend and my folks and we have had the best time here. No issues whatsoever because all your needs are met with this stunning home. The owner Jackie is just a phone call or text away and responsive immediately should you need her. Housekeeping is excellent! The whole home is snug and warm when heating is on you have no worries of ever feeling a chill. The beds are so comfy you drift off to sleep so quickly.. never do you hear anything that could disturb you here. Peace and quite is at its absolute best. the conservatory is massive!! My favourite part of the house where I can sit in peace with a cuppa tea enjoying a book or just peacefuness. The view of the hills from the conservatory are just mesmerising.. in the evenings in the garden your met with a lovely darkness .. just look up! The dark sky filled with all the stars you feel like your in space and surrounded by the stars!your met with a feeling so content at Jackie's home you want to leave! I've been home 2 days and I have already rebooked to return in March for another 2 weeks because of how stunning the home and location is.. it's captivating! Hinderwell is a sleepy quite peaceful village. And a stone throw to to your left is the gorgeous coastal village of staithes. A must visit for everyone. Especially the Cod and lobster the food is out of this world. Recommend you book a table as it can get busy due to the top rated location and the food. To your right of hinderwell is The pub The Brown Cow which is less than 100 metres to your right up the small beautiful lane the home is located at is the best pub I have found in the UK because the landlord Mark is just a wonderful gentleman who is so down to earth with his humerus charm and great atmosphere you'll enjoy the cask ales in this free house pub. Continue on and you'll come to Runswick bay another stunning location beach here is just incredible! And the views down to its beach and surrounding cliffs are breathtaking. The little village of hinderwell has a lovely little butchers where you can buy fresh meats aswell as other groceries.. but if you walk upto staithes you'll come across a co-op on the side of road. It has everything!! And a cash machine outfront. Ofc you can get a bus! To Whitby or anywhere tbh. You won't need your car to get around. The bus service is excellent! And the busses are frequent. I would highly recommend Jackie's home to everyone. It's in a perfect location with everything you could possibly need all around you. I'm so excited to be returning in March. Thank You immensely Jackie. I look forward to my return to your stunning home from home.

    Hinderwell is a wonderful charming village with first class facilities. The conservatory has fully opening windows which let the afternoon sunshine flood in. A perfect, peaceful haven for a good book and G&T. Dog friendly and the completely enclosed patio garden ensured our dog could roam freely and safely. Little or no noise / disruption from the caravan site which was immaculately kept and provided a lovely little walk right on the doorstep. We would 100% recommend Barn Cottage and can’t wait to return.

    Before arrival great communication with Jacky the owner and on arrival a super welcome pack, a real nice touch. It is a beautiful cottage, spotlessly clean, with all the facilities you could wish for and perfectly situated in a lovely village, handy for nice walks along the Cleveland way, in easy striking distance from staithes and runswick bay. We stayed at peak summer holiday season and did not encounter noise or disruption either from neighbours or from the campsite traffic. We all agreed that we would gladly live here and we will definitely be returning in the future.

  • "Nice, well presented cottage in a pretty village Close to lots of beautiful destinations such as Runswick bay and sandsend."

    Having one bathroom between 5 people was a struggle at times , and we found the beds incredibly uncomfortable (the pillows definitely needed replacing). Also, due to the fact that the house is in the heart of a village and next to the entrance of a campsite, it was a little noisy at times ( dogs barking, car alarms, general noise of people walking up and down). It’s also worth noting that the cottage is a semi detached property with a young family living right next door, so if you are after peace and quiet this probably isn’t the place for you. We wouldn’t return to the same property again for the above reasons.

The property

This attractive, semi-detached stone barn conversion is quietly tucked away in the bustling village of Hinderwell, 9 miles north of Whitby.

Well maintained and comfortably furnished, the cottage is ideal for families and friends wishing to enjoy the beautiful mix of moorland and coast, in this area of the country.

Downstairs, the modern galley-style kitchen leads into a light and spacious sitting room, whilst adjoining this is a superb, heated, south-facing conservatory, with exposed stone walls and views over the hills.

Upstairs are three pretty bedrooms, providing warm and welcoming accommodation.

Outside the cottage is an enclosed, walled patio, which attracts the afternoon and evening sun - a peaceful spot in which to sit with a glass of wine, after a busy day on the beach!

Two minutes' walk from the property brings you to the excellent amenities of the village, including a good butchers, a newsagents, two pubs, a bistro and a hairdressers, whilst the pretty cove and beach at Runswick Bay is a pleasant one-mile walk away and this beach has taken the top spot in The Times' 50 best beaches for 2020.

Enjoy a bracing clifftop walk on the Cleveland Way or visit the old smuggling village of Staithes, with its cobbled streets and tiny cottages tumbling towards the harbour.

With rock pools and caves to discover, and fossils to collect, there is much enjoyment for all the family.

There are a number of golf courses in close proximity to the cottage and with the stunning scenery of the North York Moors close by and the popular seaside towns of Whitby and Saltburn a short drive away, this well-located cottage makes an excellent holiday home and a superb base for walkers and cyclists.
