The property

Perched in the peaceful hamlet of Ellerby, near Runswick Bay and Staithes, in North Yorkshire, The Old Dairy is a superb, four-bedroom Grade II listed barn conversion.

Boasting a fantastic location within the North York Moors National Park, with stunning views overlooking the open fields and towards the coast.

The Old Dairy is a wonderful dwelling for a group or family of eight who are looking to explore this beautiful part of Yorkshire.

Step into the well-equipped farmhouse kitchen, where you can look forward to impressing your guests with flavourful culinary delights, as they uncork a bottle of wine and set the table.

Settle down at the spacious table for eight to tuck-in to a delicious meal, as you plan an itinerary for the days ahead.

Just off the kitchen, you will find a handy utility room which houses a washing machine and tumble dryer, perfect for keeping your holiday wardrobe fresh.

After a satisfying meal, make your way into the well-appointed sitting room, where you and your loved ones can snuggle up in front of a favourite film on the Smart TV.

Completing the ground-floor is a king-size bedroom with en-suite shower room, ideal for those with limited mobility, and a separate cloakroom for convenience.

Climb the stairs up to the first floor, which can be accessed via two staircases for the ease of two families or larger groups, where you will discover three additional bedrooms, a king-size and two doubles, all of which are served by two bathrooms.

Awake from a restful night and prepare for the day in style with a long, lazy soak in the bath or a refreshing rinse, before savouring your morning coffee out in the enclosed garden as you soak up the fantastic views.

Explore your local surroundings, where just a stone’s throw away you will find the Ellerby Residential Country Inn, where you can treat your loved ones to a tasty meal and sample the local ales, giving everyone a night off from the kitchen.

Take the short drive over to Runswick Bay, where you will find the glorious sands of Runswick Bay Beach, previously voted as ‘Best Beach of the Year’ by the Times in 2020, here you can beachcombe the small, sheltered sands or paddle the shores, followed by a traditional pub lunch at The Royal Hotel Pub.

Walkers will delight at the close proximity of the popular Cleveland Way, a 109-mile walking trail which leads through changing landscapes and over the highest point on the east coast of England.

For a wider selection of amenities, head to the village of Staithes, where you can peruse local shops and pick-up any last-minute essentials, dine with sea views at the Cod & Lobster, or learn more about the famous explorer at the Captain Cook & Staithes Heritage Centre.

Be sure to venture over to Whitby, home to the magnificent Gothic Whitby Abbey, said to be the inspiration behind Bram Stokers famous vampire, Dracula.

Embark on the Dracula Experience which will take you through key sites of the town, climb the 199 Steps, wander the exhibits of the Whitby Museum and the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, or spend a day at Whitby’s fantastic beach, followed by a show at the Whitby Pavilion.

About the location


Whitby 10 miles.

The charming and sleepy seaside village of Staithes, with its cobbled streets and back alleys, is something of an artist’s dream. Its pretty houses and cottages are clustered around the old harbour and surrounded by high craggy cliffs on three sides, with a sheltered sandy beach set amongst the rocky coastline. The village can claim connections with Captain Cook who was apprenticed to a draper near the harbour. Nowadays, Staithes is a must for anyone visiting the Yorkshire Coast and has a good selection of pubs, shops and tea rooms. Staithes is still home to an RNLI lifeboat station and a small fleet of cobles (fishing boats) landing fish, crab and lobster, with boat trips for birdwatching, fishing and even whale watching available. It’s also the location of the popular BBC children’s TV series, Old Jack’s Boat. Staithes has a strong attraction for artists, with an annual Art and Heritage Festival, galleries and artists studios with art courses and workshops regularly on offer. There’s a free Illusion Trail, which guides visitors around the network of ginnels (alleyways), with trail guides available locally. The best views of the town can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliff to the sea’s edge. Altogether a superb base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast, visiting the larger resorts of Whitby or Scarborough and enjoying the moorland villages of the North York Moors National Park.
