This imaginatively converted property is located in a beautiful setting and provides comfortable accommodation for up to eight people.

This barn and wheelhouse conversion is a stunning property on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. Many of the original features have been retained including the enormous old beam that once powered the mill. The inviting and cosy sitting room is in the skeleton of the wheelhouse and is a quirky octagonal shape with windows on three sides to take in the views. The modern, well-equipped kitchen has a bright and airy dining area and there are three spacious and peaceful bedrooms, one of them on the galleried landing over the sitting room. The modern bathroom is on the ground floor and there is a first floor shower room. This welcoming property makes a wonderful base for a holiday in this fabulous area.

The Wheelhouse is in a perfect position, so peaceful, and within easy reach of the coast and beautiful moorland. The cottage is warm and cosy with plenty of room for everyone and has everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday.
Mrs Jennings

This is a really comfortable cottage in beautiful surroundings, enhanced by the fact that it is situated on a working stud farm. We loved seeing the horses being led out every morning. The owner was really helpful and we had a relaxing holiday. We would certainly recommend this cottage to friends and family!
Mrs Holroyd

A beautiful cottage, very warm and cosy. Loved it!
Mrs Sheldon

The cottage was wonderful, a perfect little retreat in an idyllic location.
Mr Herring

A large well equipped cottage, well sited for both the North Yorkshire Coast and the North Yorkshire Moors. The old mill has been tastefully converted to emphasise the historic features whilst maximising available space. Beds are comfortable and bedrooms have sufficient wardrobe and drawer space. The kitchen is well equipped and roomy with good views of the stables. The living room is light, airy and warm. The horses were also an interesting distraction for the friends travelling with us. The cottage is in easy travelling distance from Whitby for the Abbey and old town, Robin Hoods Bay, the North York Moors Railway and the city of York. This cottage is at the opposite side of the moors from where we normally stay, but it is one we would definitely return to.
