The property

Robin Hood’s Bay 1.5 miles.

Set in an enviable, elevated position on the owner's smallholding, this detached stone barn conversion has phenomenal views over the sea and the picturesque smugglers’ village of Robin Hood's Bay.

Originally an old milking parlour, the barn now provides an excellent holiday home for families and friends wishing to explore the spectacular countryside of the North York Moors National Park and the dramatic coastline.

With mainly ground floor accommodation, entry is into the well-equipped generous-sized kitchen, with a large dining table in the middle; a very sociable space in which to sit and share a family meal.

The spacious, separate sitting room has a vaulted beamed ceiling, and large picture windows to take in the wonderful vistas.

This light and airy room has underfloor heating, so cosy underfoot, and a warming woodburning stove, perfect to curl up by on cooler evenings.

An archway opens onto an additional dining area, overlooking the coast, just perfect for more formal dining in the evening, you can just imagine sitting with a glass of wine and watching the twinkling lights of the village below.

With glass doors opening onto both patios, guests can relax in the sunshine and drink in the view!

There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, a smallish bunk room and a lovely double, with plenty of storage space and an inviting bubbling Jacuzzi bath to soak in, after a day's walking on the moors.

Upstairs is a superb hideaway room for children, with an Xbox and games to keep them amused on a rainy day.

With access to the owner's fields, a big hit with your four-legged friends, everyone is well catered for.

A few minutes’ walk down the hill brings you to a popular village pub and general store, along with a local butchers, while a little further brings you to Robin Hood's Bay.

There are superb walking and cycling opportunities from the door, with numerous public footpaths to follow, including the Cinder Track - a twenty three mile disused railway line, which runs from Whitby to Scarborough.

A pleasant walk across the fields will bring you to the bottom of Robin Hood's Bay, with its quaint cottages, cobbled streets and sandy cove.

Paddle in the sea, go crabbing in the rock pools or hunt for fossils in the cliffs.

Why not don your walking boots and take an invigorating cliff top walk along the Coast to Coast trail and then reward yourself with a delicious cream tea in one of the tea rooms?

Historic Whitby is just a few minutes’ drive, with its famous abbey, long golden sands and rich array of restaurants, bars and cafes.

With the surrounding breathtaking moors to discover and many other attractions, Stone Trough Cottage makes an idyllic venue for a varied and enjoyable holiday.

About the location


Whitby 6 miles; Scarborough 17 miles.

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.
