While away the days in the gorgeous garden at Granary Cottage and soak up the views of the North York Moors and the ocean. The Yorkshire delightful North holiday cottage in Staintondale offers guests tranquillity and rural charm with its exposed beams and delightful décor.

The open-plan living space promises year-round comfort courtesy of the biomass central heating and comprises a fitted kitchen, a dining area and a cosy and relaxing sitting area. This room will bring the family together to share stories, read or make use of the TV, DVD and CD/stereo.

The enclosed, walled garden also includes a BBQ and is a perfect place to dine, relax and enjoy the stunning views as the kids and dogs play and have fun. For a true country meal, head to the pub at Staintondale, just a mile away.

The barn conversion also provides WiFi, amenities for young children, laundry facilities and off-road parking, and lies between Scarborough and Whitby, which gives it access to a stunning stretch of coastline, walking and cycling trails and the chance to view a seal colony at Ravenscar.

Ideal for a short break

Friendly welcome, easy parking and secure garden for our small dog made this a great place for our week's stay in the North Yorks Moors and Coast area. Accommodation is fairly compact but suited our needs well. There is a pub that serves great food within 0.5m of the property and some lovely walks close by - along the cost from Ravenscar towards the picturesque fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay.

Luxurious home from home

Had a fabulous stay in this lovely cottage in March 2012. The weather was sunny and warm and we had some fabulous walks both on the beach, the pennine way and the surrounding countryside. The cottage and all its facilites are excellent and the enclosed back garden was a real plus and brilliant for our dog. The cottage is situated in a lovely position with some great walks around the area and some lovely dog friendly pubs.

The only addition I would recommend to the owners of the cottage is a large rug in the lounge area as the floor was freezing even when the heating was on.

Would highly recommend this cottage and we hope to return again.

Beautiful, clean little cottage

Would definitely recommend this cottage .You can see the sea from the courtyard and the lovely surrounding countryside. Chocolates were left for us in the property on our arrival which we all thought was a lovely touch .The cottage was spotlessly clean and very welcoming .The only minor niggle was that the blackout blind was not very effective in the single bedroom .Overall, we were very happy with the accommodation.
