Enjoy a countryside walk, right from your doorstep, down into nearby Staithes and joining onto the Cleveland Way as it snakes across cliff tops and down into hidden coves and bays. Staithes is popular with tourists and has a number of traditional pubs, a coffee shop and even its own independent art gallery. It has a fascinating history of pirates and smugglers, as well as links to Captain Cook who worked here as a child.

There is also horse riding, fishing at Scaling Dam and golf nearby.

The Gothic town of Whitby is just 13 miles away and is famous for its links to Bram Stoker’s Dracula. It offers a hectic schedule of festivals and events all year round including the Goth Weekend, Folk Week and its own Regatta, as well as cobbled streets full of independent shops and traders. The Whitby Abbey towers over the town and can be reached by climbing the famous 199 steps and affords fantastic views of the town and out to sea. There are plenty of traditional dog friendly pubs with live music, tea rooms and delis, as well as some fantastic places to eat. Why not catch a tourist boat out to sea in search of minke whales and seals, or enjoy a trip on the steam train that snakes its way through the National Park into Heartbeat Country. There are plenty of seaside towns and villages to explore along this dramatic coastline, or take a trip to the walled city of York with its many attractions.

“Fantastic break in this lovely location. Gorgeous accommodation with everything that you could need and more. Annette was lovely. Perfect retreat.”
— Pamela, 9 March 2022
“Great little place, lovely and quiet location with the nearest little village 3 miles away. Lots of nice little touches with the welcome hamper and milk and sugar.The lane leading to the cottage is very rough and you need to take it slow. Great location for walks and the heated floor works a treat. Also the host is amazing and couldn't be more helpful, she even gave us a bag of snacks and drinks for the journey home as we left during storm Arwen.”

“Delightful cottage with a fantastic view from the veranda. Small, but comfortable, with a very friendly and helpful owner living next door. Lots of local walks and pretty coastal villages nearby. Only drawback is that you walk straight into the living room from outside, so nowhere separate to leave wet and muddy coatsboots or to wipe the dog's feet on a damp day only a minor point, but a porch would be helpful.”

“This is an amazing little cottage tucked away down a single lane farm track . If you want to escape from noise and people this is the place to go. Yet still only a short drive to The beaches or Whitby. The host is so lovely as well I was made to feel so welcome. We would definitely go back next year for another summer holiday”

“Absolutely loved this for a four night break. The views are breathtaking of open countryside and sea! Underfloor heating was a dream. The hostess Annette made us feel very welcome and left us a lovely welcome hamper with lovely treats in it and a list of tips of things to do in the surrounding area. Hope to be able to go back again soon. Just perfect ”
