This attractive property near Robin Hood’s Bay is able to sleep three people and provides a perfect base for exploring the region.

This stone-built, semi-detached barn conversion is situated in the rural hamlet of High Normanby, close to the pretty villages of Fylingthorpe and Robin Hood's Bay. Retaining much of its original character, this former goat barn has been loving renovated and now boasts a wealth of exposed timber, flagged floors and a beautiful vaulted ceiling. Decorated and furnished to a very high standard, the property provides light and airy accommodation, perfectly situated for access to the coast.

The living space in the cottage consists of a double bedroom, a fitted kitchen with dining area and a lounge with sofa-bed and electric stove. This wonderful little property makes a great place for a young family.


Lovely stay in The Goat Shed
We stayed in The Goat Shed in mid September. It is a beautiful place to stay. We holidayed with our dog so it was very useful to have a secure dog exercise field on site. The Goat Shed has a secure pebbled garden area which has beautiful plants and flowers and is very private next to a field and you can park your car right outside the property which is helpful. From parts of the site you can see the sea and views down to Whitby and the Abbey. The Goat Shed is very well furnished and has everything you need for a very pleasant stay. Would highly recommend. Only 10 mins drive to Whitby and 5 mins drive down the country lanes to Robin Hoods Bay. A local pub in Fylingdale is only 30 minute walk down the hill or a couple of mins drive or you can get a taxi back with Bay Cars for £6.

Definitely not a shed
Wow! This place is the perfect base for walks straight from the door step. Peaceful, clean and bright, well equipped and comfortable, warm and plenty of hot water. We were really surprised at the size of the place, with ample room outside including parking. Star gazing in bed...Just perfect! We loved it, our dog loved it! Only grumble....We didn't stay long enough - Will definitely be returning! Thank you for a lovely stay!

Home From Home ( with alpacas )
We stayed at the Goatshed for 3 blissful nights . It's a little off the beaten track but within easy reach of Robin Hood's Bay and Whitby . Walkable distance to Robin Hood's Bay ( unless like me you are waiting for a new knee ). The Goatshed is spotless, super comfy and cosy with everything you could need, even a washing machine , iron and ironing board . The fenced off area out side of the cottage was brilliant for our Basset Hound , who follows his nose and tries to escape at every opportunity ! The field next door has alpacas which were really sweet ! During our stay , we visited the Fylingdale Inn in Fylingthorpe , just over a mile away, they do tasty soup and sandwiches from 2pm onwards and are dog friendly . I can not recommend the Goatshed enough , it was a lovely stay

A lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the world. The cottage was dog friendly as was the site, with a dog walking paddock. We will definitely go back again!
