The property

A charming, stone terraced cottage, located next to the local inn, in the tranquil village of Ugthorpe.

Quaint and cosy, this Ugthorpe cottage will delight couples and families looking to stay in peaceful surroundings, but still be within easy reach of the coast, with Whitby just nine miles away.

Beautifully renovated to a high standard, this Ugthorpe cottage radiates charm and character, retaining many original features including beamed ceilings, aged timber floors, a traditional salt cupboard and panelled walls.

The homely sitting room in this Ugthorpe cottage boasts a warming multi-fuel stove set in a stone fireplace, whilst the bespoke, hand-crafted kitchen has a Belfast sink, wooden worktops and a stable door overlooking the main street.

There are two pretty bedrooms, a first-floor double along with a sparkling bathroom, which offers a freestanding roll-top bath and separate shower, plus a second-floor twin, which can be conveniently converted into a super king-size double on request, accessed by steep, winding cottage stairs.

With great attention to detail, Holme Cottage provides a comfortable, romantic retreat in a lovely setting, with the benefit of the neighbouring local inn serving real ales and good food.

From this Ugthorpe cottage, superb walking and cycling opportunities can be discovered with the numerous paths leading from the village, whilst the bustling seaside town of Whitby, with its long sandy beaches and cobbled streets, is just a few minutes' drive away.

A well-placed Ugthorpe cottage for a relaxing holiday.

About the location


Whitby 9 miles; Runswick Bay 3 miles; Sandsend 6 miles.

The small, rural village of Ugthorpe lies 9 miles from the historic port of Whitby. Surrounded by the beautiful and dramatic countryside of the North York Moors, this scattered village makes a lovely peaceful place to stay. There is a local village inn serving food, very welcome after a day’s walking on the numerous public footpaths and bridleways in the area. The seaside villages of Sandsend and Runswick Bay are close by and both provide lovely, sandy beaches, fossil hunting and beachcombing. Ugthorpe is in an ideal location, with easy access to the steam railway at Grosmont, the Danby Moors Centre, the market towns of Pickering and Hutton-le-Hole and all the seaside attractions of Whitby.
