English Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Original features and a farmhouse kitchen help define the character of this spacious property which is close to Whitby.

Steeped in history, this imposing, detached holiday cottage dates back to 1888 and was originally the residence of a former sea commander. Many original features are still evident, with a wood-panelled entrance hall, stripped wood flooring and cast-iron fireplaces throughout adding to the charm and character of this beautiful property, which makes the perfect place for a family get-together. Huge comfortable sofas and armchairs adorn each floor, with quiet reading corners looking out over open countryside to the front, and picture windows to the rear affording stunning sea views across the pretty gardens down to Robin Hoods Bay. Fylingthorpe sits at the top of the ancient fishing village of Robin Hoods Bay where visitors step back in time as they follow the row of tumbling fisherman’s cottages and the cobbled streets (lined with curio shops, tea rooms, inns and restaurants) down to the sandy little cove. The historic Port of Whitby - where Captain James Cook set sail from on his epic journey of discovery - is but a 10-minute drive. Here the colourful promenade leads to a 3-mile stretch of award-winning sandy beach. The North York Moors steam train can be boarded to discover some of Yorkshire’s finest scenery as it chugs its way through the beautiful Esk valley into the famous village of Goathland - renowned for its connections with TV’s Heartbeat. A little further south of the village is the elegant seaside town of Scarborough. Golfing, fishing, sea trips, cycle and walking tracks are all available locally. Shops 150 yards, pubs and restaurants 100 yards.

Large entrance hall with original panelling and tiled floor. Spacious living room with open fire in cast-iron grate and wooden floor. Dining room with gas ‘living-flame’ fire, TV, views to bay, and wooden floor. Large well-equipped farmhouse-style kitchen with Rangemaster (for cooking) and dining area. Utility.

Two twin bedrooms, one with feature fireplace and panoramic window. Bathroom with shower cubicle and toilet. Bathroom with toilet. Separate toilet. Second floor: Reading area.

    A lovely holiday house. Very spacious with plenty of room for our party of 10. Stunning views over Robin Hood Bay from the garden and lots of the rooms. A great base from which to explore this great area.

    Beautiful garden with lovely views from every window, well equipped, the only tiny tweak I would make would be to have a sink in the middle toilet

    We had a great week exploring the fabulous walks, lovely places to visit and eat. Really enjoyed the views from the house, the village shop and it was within walking distance of Robin Hoods Bay. Perfect for a winter break. Loved sitting by the log fire at night. Thanks

    Wonderful peaceful location with fantastic views. A spacious property where we all had plenty of room to relax (8 of us). Lots of books, games and dvds to keep the kids entertained on rainy days. Would have liked to stay longer.

    A very comfortable and well located cottage that gives easy access to local attractions. The sea views from the rear windows are a great bonus! We had an elderly guest as part of our party and the lack of a ground floor loo caused some difficulty and the on street parking is not ideal but unavoidable.

    We enjoyed the cottage. Comfortable and met our needs as a family. Good views. On road parking was an issue. WE had a total of three cars and on arrival found two cars parked on the cottage frontage, one being there the whole weekend of our arrival, the owner of the other putting cones in the vacant space whenever they went out in the car. The cottage's general locality meant that whenever you vacated your parking space it was quickly occupied by another, the occupants of which were "going down to Robin Hood's Bay''.
