This delightful, semi-detached barn conversion is situated on a working farm and can sleep up to eight people in comfort.

This delightful, semi-detached stone barn conversion is on a working farm and offers spacious holiday accommodation for parties up to eight people. The well-equipped fitted kitchen has exposed beams, giving it a ‘country farmhouse’ feel and the dining area is also located in this space. The spacious sitting room is comfortable and welcoming with a stone feature fireplace housing an electric flame effect fire, giving instant warmth and a cosy feel to the room. The four bedrooms are light and appealing with sloping ceilings, making them snug and inviting and a real haven of peace. There are two bathrooms serving the property, one of which is a shower room on the ground floor. There is a lovely lawned area with furniture and fishing rights for the River Esk are available from the owner, as long as visitors have a fishing licence.


We had a wonderful week in this cottage.It felt like home the minute we arrived, and we were all sad to leave.The location is handy for the entire area, with Whitby on the doorstep, Robin Hoods Bay, Sandsend, Runswick Bay and Staithes just a short trip away, and a variety of inland destinations under an hour away (Nunnington Hall a must). Sainsbury's near by made self catering easy. The place was quiet but not remote or isolated.The cottage was great value for money, and we would certainly return.

A very well located and lovely clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage. It was perfect for a family break.
Mrs Alexander

Whalebone Cottage is peaceful and very spacious. Gorgeous in every way and suitable for everyone that joined us there!
Mrs Lambert

We had a great time in Whitby. The holiday cottage is really spacious for up to 8 people and having 2 showers was a bonus as there were 7 of us. The children loved the garden area and the views from the cottage were stunning. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone going to Whitby on holiday.
Mr Bury

Whalebone Cottage is a lovely cottage; very suitable for our requirements and Whitby is simply a delightful place to have a holiday; it is the jewel of the East Coast. This was our second stay at Whalebone Cottage and we have already booked for 2016.
