Barn Cottage in the tiny hamlet of High Normandy, near Robin Hood’s Bay in North Yorkshire, is a romantic cottage offering couples on holiday an opportunity to visit the seaside resorts of Whitby, Robin Hood’s Bay and Staithes or the North York Moors, whichever tickles their fancy.
This pet-friendly holiday cottage in the North York Moors National Park is an attractive, stone-built, semi-detached barn conversion that has been charmingly restored and renovated to retain its original character while providing modern amenities and tasteful décor.
The open-plan living area includes kitchen, dining area and cosy sitting area, while a small, raised decked area comes furnished and allows couples to relax outdoors, admiring views of the countryside towards Whitby after spending a day wandering the area.
Guests can visit nearby Robin Hood’s Bay; a picturesque village on the Yorkshire coastline that sits on the edge of a wide sweeping bay backed by spectacular cliffs, with the Cleveland Way, Lyke Wake Walk and Coast to Coast walks all crossing paths in the town.
liked it very much
Very nice place to stay, good level of furnishings. Good shower, plenty of hot water.Very quiet, very rural but not too far from main road. Easy to find.
Comfortable, cosy and central to everything
Barn Cottage was just as described on your web site. It was very clean and comfortable. The arrangements for the key were easy and instructions how to get there were easy to follow. The location was excellent - only a few miles from all attractions eg Whitby Museum.
All in all Barn Cottage was an enjoyable place to stay in beautiful country side.
My only slight grumble was that there was no soap to wash hands/shower and very little toilet paper.
Lovely place to stay
Yes, this is a good location cottage in a very quiet location, yet within easy driving distance to Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay. All you need for a pleasant and relaxing stay. Good quality fittings and appliances, with good standard of cleanliness.
Perfect retreat for couples
Excellent welcome on arrival, very spacious & clean. Both cottage & surrounding area absolutely first class. Will defiantly recommend to friends & family. Really good heating system & plenty of hot water.The thing we liked best was the lovely bathroom facilities. The thing we liked least was the TV was too small for the room although it worked well & had plenty of channels.

The cottage was in a good position to access Whitby and the surrounding areas and it made a comfortable and cosy retreat to return to each day. The owner was very welcoming and advised that she was nearby if needed. All in all, we felt at home straight away and we didn't want to leave at the end of the week!
This cottage is very snug and cosy, and has lovely interior beams that the pictures don't do justice to.
We visited during a particularly cold spell, and the heating was excellent.
Kitchen stocked with tea, coffee and sugar, which was very welcome and a nice touch.
Lovely and quiet cottage which had everything we needed with very good weather. We enjoyed a lovely visit to the north Yorkshire moors railway and Scarborough museum.
Excellent quiet rural location for both Robin Hood's Bay and Whitby. Barn Cottage was well equipped, spacious and comfortable.
This was an excellent cottage, very clean, comfortable and beautifully furnished. The site was very quiet, and was within walking distance of the local pub (1 mile) and Robin Hoods Bay (2 miles). Thoroughly enjoyable stay.

The cottage was lovely and, when our holiday was over, we didn't want to leave. It was a home away from home.
Lovely Barn Cottage; quiet, clean and very tastefully decorated. Everything you could need for a peaceful break.
Everything was perfect!
Easy access to Whitby and lots of restaurants. Holidaying in April with dogs is great as the beach restrictions are not in force until May and there are lots of lovely beaches to walk them. Walked for miles even though the weather was cold.
Great location- Whitby just a 5 minute drive, Robin Hoods Bay and Fylingthorpe a 20 minute walk away.
The cottage suited my husband's lack of mobility perfectly. No steps/stairs, a walk in shower, high bed & lounge furniture that he could get in & out of with ease. Parking was just a few paces away.
The cottage has high ceilings which created light & space & was enhanced by the morning sun (when we got it). But in the evenings the cottage was lovely & cosy & warm (we were there in October). Overall an excellent property.
Fantastic property in a really great location. Had lovely owners who were really helpful, will definitely return to this gem of a place.
We liked the situation of the cottage. The owners were very helpful and the cottage was very spacious and attractive. Not too far from Whitby and handy for touring N.York moors and Coast. All in all to be recommended. We will go again.
It was excellent quality, very comfortable.
