This delightful cottage is built from stone and offers cosy accommodation for couples looking to escape the daily grind and enjoy each other’s company in picturesque surroundings.

Originally a stone barn, this property has been lovingly and tastefully restored to offer open-plan living accommodation for two people. Much of the cottage’s original charm has been preserved through the retention of original features such as exposed beams, sloping ceilings and wooden floorboards. Visitors will also have access to an acre of land which is bordered by a walled garden.

Fully centrally heated, it can act as a warm and peaceful base at any time of year.


Great hide away, off the beaten track, high on the moors
What a location, on the moor side with morning views across the valley and into the moors of North Yorkshire. Based on an old farm with chickens in the yard, sheep in the fields and horses in the stables. Down a gated lane and across the farm track, it made the ideal quite location often sort after. The cottage was great, simple accommodation, bedding clean, clean bathroom and great atmosphere for a weekend break for two. Log fire and central heating to boot. All the required amenities provided. We just took food for breakfast eating locally for the rest in the many pubs and restaurants around the Whitby area. Though dog friendly we noted the yard with chickens brought some feet wiping on entry. Not a problem but we were charged for the dog. A great stay would fully recommend it for those who accept the farm type accommodation and not the Ritz.

Superb - lovely 'get away from it all' cosy cottage. Everything you need, supplied with fresh eggs and logs for the fire. Amazing views - loved the chickens, rabbits and horses! Great hospitality from Sarah! Thank you - we hope to return one day!

Wonderful Moorland Hideaway
Lovely old stone cottage, updated to make a perfect holiday retreat high in the North York Moors. The cottage is well appointed, clean and comfortable, surrounded by cottage garden planting and with its own secluded garden too. We were made most welcome by the owner and Ted the dog showed our own dog the ropes. The scenery and wildlife are spectacular and there are a couple pubs within walking distance. The bright lights of Whitby are 20 minutes way if you need a kiss-me-quick hat, but there is perfect moorland to walk on all around if you prefer peace and quiet. Simply lovely and we'll be back.

The owner was an excellent landlady, helpful and friendly. I wanted a winter break away from it all. Perfect

Daffodil Cottage was lovely, very homely, cosy and quiet which was perfect for a week away. The log fire was especially lovely. It was within easy driving distance of Whitby and there were numerous nice walks basically on the doorstep.
