Experience the idyllic location of a seaside retreat you'll dream of owning yourself one day. Choose this 17th century farmhouse as your holiday base to discover the beautiful Yorkshire coast.

A cottage every little bit as gorgeous as it sounds, this property was originally a 17th century farmhouse which has been transformed into a beautiful three-bedroom holiday home encompassing a lovely large garden and separate play area with fantastic views down to the sea. Set in an elevated position on the Yorkshire Coast with the delights of Robin Hood's Bay within half a mile, the location is idyllic too.

A real home-from-home, this cottage is the sort of seaside holiday home you dream of owning yourself one day. Fully equipped with everything you could need, it ticks all of the boxes in terms of chocolate-box appeal, contemporary interiors and period charm. Step inside the honey-coloured sandstone exterior to find a bright and spacious home with plenty of room for the whole family, including your four-legged friend.

Downstairs you'll find an entrance hall leading to a large open-plan living / dining area. With warm solid oak flooring underfoot, soft rugs and a wood burner to keep you toasty, cosy evenings in are guaranteed.

The stylish kitchen is next door where you'll find granite worktops and contemporary kitchen units housing a range of top quality appliances including a larder fridge, double oven and dishwasher. There's also a microwave and Nespresso coffee maker to get you going in the morning. Lovely views from the kitchen lead the eye out across the garden and down to the coast. There's even a little breakfast bar and stools by the window just perfect for settling down with your morning coffee.

Making your way back through the living room to the hallway, you'll find one bunk bedroom and the family shower room on ground level. The sweet bedroom is perfect for children with its full size bunk beds and cosy feel. The shower room includes a large walk-in shower and WC, handy for if you're coming in from a bracing walk along the beach.

The remaining two bedrooms are upstairs, both boasting stunning views and en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom is at the end of the landing, a bright contemporary room filled with light from the large floor to ceiling window with a king-size bed to jump into. The en-suite in this room features a stunning free-standing bath for those long hot holiday soaks and a WC. The second bedroom has a similar elegant style with a vintage chic double bed and gorgeous views. The en-suite in this room has a walk-in shower as well as a WC.

With so much to love about the interiors of this luxury Yorkshire coastal cottage it's a thrill to find the garden so delightful too. Spacious and private with no-one to overlook you, there's a patio area to dine alfresco in the summer months (furniture provided) and a lawned area to lounge about on in those balmy seaside afternoons. Enjoy wonderful views down towards Robin Hood's Bay and all along the coast.  

Meanwhile adults will love the fact there's off road private parking spaces for two cars, through the big wooden gate. Any other vehicles must please park in the public car park, which is less than half a mile away.

The cottage's location is fantastic. Set in an elevated position above Robin Hood’s Bay the cottage enjoys uninterrupted views of the stunning Yorkshire coastline. Walking and cycling enthusiasts will love the fact that the famous Cinder Trail runs along right beside the cottage (named after the original surface laid down for the railway line). You can walk right along the coast from Whitby to Scarborough, a wonderful way to while away a few hours, even if you just do a few miles!

Robin Hood's Bay is one of the most popular coastal locations in Yorkshire, or the UK for that matter. Once home to the busiest smuggling trade on the Yorkshire coast, said to involve fisherman, clergy and gentry alike, today the village has adopted a much more sedate pace of life. The village is a maze of cobbled streets and higgledy piggledy houses which seem to tumble down towards the sea. Walkers can delight in the fact that Wainwright's famous Coast to Coast walk starts (or finishes depending which way you look at it) just a few yards from the door and the bay itself is just one of the charming locations on the coast.

For dinner, you have a range of options with many eateries having a lovely evening atmosphere - whether it’s a romantic evening with candlelight or a livelier evening in one of the good local pubs serving great food in the area. If you want to dine in, take advantage of the well-stocked local stores there, including an excellent fishmongers selling the freshest locally caught crab. The kids will love the traditional sweet shops and there are several really lovely little boutiques selling all manner of delightful things.

As hard as it will be to drag yourself away from Robin Hood’s Bay, you really ought to explore the rest of the coast. Much like its Cornish counterpart, the Yorkshire coastline is a heady mix of rugged cliff tops, peaceful bays and pretty fishing villages. With long sandy beaches and all the traditional seaside trimmings of yesteryear, this is proper bucket 'n spade territory. That's not to say it's stuck in the past, in fact the coast's villages and towns combine the traditional with the contemporary effortlessly, with trinket shops and tea rooms sitting alongside upmarket champagne and oyster bars.

This region is best known for the gorgeously gothic town of Whitby situated just over 5 miles away. Playing host at one time to Romans, Saxons, Celts and Danes amongst others, the town's rich heritage is immediately obvious. Straddling the river Esk and dominated by the 13th century ruins of St Hilda's Abbey on the East Cliff, Whitby's crooked cobbled streets and picturesque harbour have been a magnet for artists and tourists alike for centuries. Providing the backdrop for some of Lewis Carroll's work, it was also famously the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula. For a real sense of the town's atmospheric ambience, climb the 199 abbey steps at dusk and wander around St. Mary's churchyard on the headland. You can further indulge a desire for the macabre on one of the regular ghost walks from Whale Bone Arch on West Cliff.

Although you could happily spend the weekend mooching about the independent shops, bars and cafes along Whitby's bustling medieval streets, it's well worth striking out to sample some of the other less known coastal villages nearby. Sandsend (8 miles), Staithes (just over 15 miles) and Runswick Bay (14 miles) are all within easy driving distance, and each have their own unique charm.

A wonderful family holiday in a beautiful spot on the Yorkshire coast. The cottage is so cosy but yet feels spacious and is well equipped. A lovely garden which we would have used more if the weather had been kinder. The most comfortable bed I have ever stayed in at a holiday cottage.

This is the second time we've stayed at Apple Farm and once again we had a fantastic time. Its location is the best, within the bay and lovely views towards Ravenscar. It's right on the cinder track, ideal for running and cycling. You can walk down to Robin Hood's Bay, the beach and Boggle Hole. My favourite places.

This comfortable cottage is in an excellent position with a superb garden. The views are amazing! Does anything else matter. The parking is odd but we did get 2 cars in fine. The local pubs all did good reasonable priced food and you can walk to them all.

Beautiful peaceful & well equipped cottage within a 20min walk of the sea.As previous reviews have stated, the parking is a little quirky and only really big enough for one large family sized car.

We loved it here, my only reservation is that the shower room upstairs is very cramped and the access to it is very awkward particularly for my sprightly but 84 year old father, who was with us for two nights, as there is no shower in the master en suite he and my husband had to share the downstairs shower room with our other guest.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
