This pair of converted 16th-century barns stand in open country, just 2 miles from the ancient seaport of Whitby, on a small working farm. Set away from the road and surrounded by fields, there are views of the abbey and sea from the holiday cottages. Whitby, with its colourful harbour and picturesque marina, was home for Captain Cook as he prepared to discover the world. The cobbled streets and yards which lie beneath the Abbey on the east side are full of interesting shops and 3 miles of golden sands stretch along the coast to Sandsend. Robin Hoods Bay, 3 miles. Inland, the North Yorkshire Moor National Park, renowned as ’Heartbeat’ country is excellent for walking, or you may wish to travel on the North Yorkshire Steam Railway which travels across the moors from Grosmont to Pickering.
