A Grade II-listed former school house is the essence of heart-warming Yorkshire country living, offering spacious accommodation for six guests, enjoying both rural and coastal walks nearby.
Step back in time and stay in the quaint chocolate-box village of Fylingthorpe, a picturesque spot that’s just a stone’s throw from the ever-popular coastal village of Robin Hood’s Bay. Providing the perfect base for touring the coast and country of stunning North Yorkshire, this converted schoolhouse is on-hand to offer a remarkable stay for up to six guests.
Set off each day to discover the Heritage Coast of the North York Moors, perhaps stopping off on dog-friendly beaches with your beloved canine companions. The cobbled streets of this fishing hub are overflowing with cafe culture eateries, inviting local pubs and eclectic shops to browse, perfect for losing yourself in the laid-back pace of holiday life.
The property itself benefits from a traditional country aesthetic to match its Grade II-listed features, each room crammed with character and lovingly updated to feature a stylish decor. Unique period features include pretty mullioned windows, feature fireplaces and a unique spirelet, whilst the stand-out decor within proudly displays brightly coloured accents and antique-style furnishings.
Step inside to arrive at a narrow hallway with flagstone flooring. Following the hallway will lead to a bespoke kitchen with everything you may need to keep the holidaymakers fed and watered. The kitchen comes with a handy breakfast table, offering additional workspace or a spot to sit and keep the cook company. From here you can also enjoy stunning views into the rear courtyard, perhaps watching as young ones play whilst you prepare a hearty family meal.
Step through into the dining room to find space for everyone to sit down together. Arguably one of the more traditionally dressed rooms, this space features vintage rugs and curtains which lend an olde-worlde feel to the space. Throw a log on the wood burner to keep the room cosy as you dine in cooler months. Despite its original aesthetic, the room is equipped with a TV for staying up to date with current affairs over breakfast.
Whilst breakfast may be a time to catch up on the news, evening time offers you the chance to relax into a quality drama or catch a blockbuster film. Step into the colourful lounge and sink into a cushy sofa or armchair to do just so. Here you can switch on the Smart TV and choose from all of your favourites to fill the evening. This room also presents a feature fireplace and wood burner for staying cosy and warm during film time or box-set binging.
Finally, find a handy ground-floor WC to complete this downstairs offering.
When it’s time for bed, the first floor beckons. Mosey on up the staircase to find three pretty bedrooms, each of which has been updated to the highest of quality and offers a peaceful night’s sleep.
Two king-size bedrooms offer equally attractive surroundings in which to wake up to each morning. Both are lovingly presented with vintage interiors and plenty of space for getting ready. Completing the property’s bedtime offering is a twin bedroom that’s snug and cosy, ideal for younger visitors or two friends.
Offering plenty of facilities for getting ready bright and early, find two bathrooms upstairs on the first floor. One is presented with a walk-in shower, ideal for cleaning up ahead of a day’s adventure, and one boasts a deep bath that you’ll love to slide into after a day of hiking or biking.
At the break of the day, you can enjoy a morning brew in your private courtyard, a fully enclosed space to the rear of the property. This outdoor area also offers access to the external utility room with a washing machine and shower, ideal for those returning from the sandy beach.
