Watch boats go by and soak up the stunning coast and country views from the hot tub, or relax under a star-studded night sky, enjoying the splendid isolation Lantern Cottage has to offer. This exceptional one-bedroom detached barn conversion is set in a spectacular rural and coastal location in the North York Moors National Park and on the Yorkshire Heritage Coast. Lantern Cottage has been exquisitely converted to provide the perfect holiday accommodation for two whilst maintaining many original features such as vaulted ceilings, original beams, and exposed stone walls. The private garden has a hot tub, dining area and patio area, all with uninterrupted views of the Yorkshire coast, taking in Scarborough’s North Bay and Medieval castle, Filey Brigg, the white chalk of Bempton cliffs down to the famous lighthouse at Flamborough Head over 20 miles away.
Inside, the cottage has an open plan living area with a fully equipped oak farmhouse kitchen complete with a range cooker and integrated appliances. Share romantic meals at the antique dining table and chairs or unwind on the large Chesterfield-style corner sofa in front of the wood burner set in the original brick fireplace. The layout has been carefully considered with thoughtful touches making the most of the space, such as a window seat where you can enjoy the sea views. Through to the king size bedroom which has an ensuite with a large double-ended spa bath – perfect for two. And with underfloor heating in every room, a roaring fire and a toasty hot tub, the cottage is a perfect cosy retreat for the winter months and the festive period.
So named after the smugglers reputed to have signalled out to sea from the property, warning approaching boats about the revenue men if they were in sight. Smuggling was prominent along this coastline between 1700 and 1850 and there are many tales of the great lengths the smugglers went to ensuring they were not caught, with the cliffs laced with secret tunnels. Lantern Cottage sits 100 yards back from the cliff-top in a five-acre coastal plot alongside a late Georgian farmhouse which has been a prominent local sea- and landmark for centuries.
Lantern Cottage is surrounded by National Trust farmland pasture, hay-meadows, and brier abundant with wildlife such as roe deer, badgers, foxes, hares, barn owls, hawks, and many increasingly rare birds. Ravenscar is a small cliff-top coastal village half-way between Scarborough and Whitby known for its spectacular views of Robin Hoods Bay, Grey, and Common seal colonies on the beach below the village and it’s ‘Dark Skies’ stargazing. The area around the Cottage is criss-crossed with old footpaths and green lanes. Coastal, inland and moorland paths lead to a range of different local destinations including pubs and tearooms, quiet beaches and secluded coves, woodland glades, and nature reserves. A longer walk or bike ride crosses stunning coastal scenery to arrive at the popular tourist destination of Robin Hoods Bay, the terminus of the Wainwright’s Coast to Coast Walk.
