This cosy barn conversion was refurbished to create a stylish and welcoming property perfect for a romantic countryside getaway, close to the coast at Robin Hood’s Bay.

Meet this fantastic cottage: a quirky cosy barn conversion with a stunning moorland setting near Robin Hood’s Bay. We love this gorgeous little cottage with its eclectic style and moorland walks down to the sea from the doorstep. Perfect for couples looking for a cosy rural escape close to the coast.

This old farm building has been transformed into a stylish and surprisingly spacious holiday home. Retro playful design gives the cottage a cheerful and welcoming feel, making you smile from the moment you walk through the door.

Downstairs you'll find a bright open-plan living space home to the lounge, kitchen and dining area. The lounge area has bags of character and warmth, with reclaimed pine floors underfoot and a cosy vintage wood-burner keeping everything nice and toasty. Curl up by the fire on the 50s-style orange sofa with a glass of something good. For your evening entertainment there's a Freeview TV with DVD Player, wireless speakers and of course Wi-Fi is provided. Books and board games are also available if you want to unplug for a while.

The kitchen sits opposite - a fabulous mix of old and new with its handmade terracotta brick floor tiles, hand-painted kitchen units and the solid oak worktops. A retro-style fridge/freezer and bright orange microwave completes the look. There's also an electric oven / gas hob, dishwasher and other usual small appliances complete this kitchen, providing everything guests need for their stay.

Dinner is served in the spacious dining area with its retro-style dining table and colourful chairs along with the upcycled oak sideboard. Rustle up a hearty Yorkshire breakfast and take your time mulling over the morning papers. No need to rush today.

The bedroom in this property can be found on the first floor, at the top of painted white stairs. It feels a little magical up here, tucked away from the world. The quirky retro theme continues with a handsome cast iron bed and brightly coloured furniture.

The bathroom is set on the ground floor under the stairs, a wow-factor room with its bright blue wall tiles, Victorian black & white floor and fabulous claw foot bath. A vintage sink and towel rail complete the look. Indulge in a long hot soak in some bubbles after a bracing walk on the moors.

Outside there is a sweet little south-facing courtyard that enjoys a good deal of sunshine throughout the day. It comes complete with a bistro table and chairs set so you can make the most of the warmer months. Settle down for lunch alfresco and drink in those stunning views of the moors as they tumble down towards the sea.

Please note Swallow Cottage and Granary Cottage share the gravelled courtyard and can be booked together if required. Please enquire about discounted rates for booking the 2 cottages together. There is ample room for off road parking.

Perfect peaceful spot - brilliant for the dogs and the cottage is beAutifully decorated. The bathroom is a pure memory - that bath!!!

Reviewed by craig 7th June 2019

This is a beautiful cosy space perfect for a couples getaway and a great base to explore from. If l was being picky and you have a big dog beware there arent many walks directly from the house and if rainy no washer/ dryer for any muddy gear! Other than that its fabulous and would highly recommend.

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.
