Robin Hoods Bay, North York Moors National Park, North Yorkshire, England
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.

This converted goat shed was stunning. Going in October had the weather to deal with, however our shed kept us warm and dry. We really enjoyed our stay...

Management response:
