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.

This cottage is nestled in the quaint Fylingthorpe, a village with a traditional pub serving meals and a convenience store. It’s less than a mile from Robin Hood’s Bay, a picturesque old fishing village on the Heritage Coast of the North York Moors, which is a fantastic place for adults and children alike – don’t forget to visit the dog-friendly sandy beach. Meander the cobbled streets of the vibrant village, with a wide range of cafes, pubs, restaurants, small shops and places to explore, as well as many stunning coastal and country walks, cycle paths and bridleways right on the doorstep. Pick a section of the cinder track, an off-route trail for cycling, and travel north to Whitby (6 miles) or south to Scarborough (15 miles).

A fine, Grade II-listed, former school house crammed with character behind its stone exterior retaining much of its period charm such as pretty mullioned windows, fireplaces and spirelet. Step through the charming front door and be welcomed into a hallway, then head through to the bespoke kitchen to find all your catering essentials with electric hob and oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. Enjoy your meal in the dining room warmed by the heat of the wood burner, which creates a very cosy feel. After dinner, get even cosier in the lounge; here you can relax upon an evening, catching up on your favourite shows courtesy of the smart TV, with an alluring wood burner to warm you up. Completing the ground floor is a separate WC. As the day turns to night, climb the stairs and choose between three well-appointed bedrooms, two king-size and one twin room. There are two bathrooms; a shower room with a walk-in shower and WC, and a bathroom with bath, separate shower, WC and fabulous views.

Enjoy your morning brew outside in the small courtyard. The outside utility room is a handy area complete with an outdoor shower, WC and washing machine – perfect if you, or your furry companion return from the beach with lots of sand. On-street parking outside, subject to availability.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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.
