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 cot...tage 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.

Note: This property is situated amongst farm buildings and is opposite a Dutch Barn, but offers views of the field from the side of the property.
Region: The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.
Town: With its narrow, cobbled streets and quaint cottages, Robin Hood's Bay is one of the most picturesque villages on the English coastline. Located between the thriving towns of Scarborough and Whitby, this charming fishing village is set at the edge of a sweeping bay backed by impressive cliffs and dramatic moorland. All visitors will love the beach and its cliff top walks, whilst more serious climbers can enjoy the many long distance trails that pass through the town such as the Cleveland Way, the Lyke Wake Walk and the Coast to Coast walks. The village amenities are superb and with charming alleyways to explore and plenty of places to rest, this makes a great location all year round.

We stayed for a week in august, at The Goatshed, and really enjoyed our holiday, as did our Portuguese Water Dog artchie. The accommodation was ideal for anyone with a dog, with all you could possibly need. A lovely walk into Robin Hood's Bay, but beware it's uphill on the way back. We would definitely stay here again, on our next visit to the Whitby area.The owners are very approachable, and live on the farm adjacent.
pleasent,relaxing,comfy and cosy

We travelled to The Goatshed from Sale in Cheshire on a very cold, wet and wintry Monday morning in October! There was fog, sleet and driving rain as we drove up the M62 and I was wondering what on earth had possessed me to book a week away in Yorkshire in October! However, as we arrived at the cottage in the farm grounds - the sun was shining and the sky had turned to a beautiful clear blue with not a cloud in sight!
The owner - Mrs Peberdy - came to meet us with the cottage keys and gave us a very friendly welcome. She asked us to let her know if we needed anything and told us she would be available to help at any time.
The cottage has been lovingly renovated.It was very spacious and comfortable and well equipped.Central heating radiators timed to come on early morning and evening meant we were always warm and cosy!
The weather was kind to us all week and we were able to take advantage of the Goatshed's fabulous location every day! It was ideally located for us - just a 10 minute drive into Whitby or 15 minutes or so to Robin Hood's Bay - both really great places with lots of exploring and things to see. Sandsend - just a little outside Whitby was charming - the cottages by the river are picture postcard material!
Scarborough, Filey,and Bridlington were all easily accessible and worth visiting as was Goatland - the home of Itv's 'Heartbeat'! Staithes (lovely old fishing harbour) was very interesting - our dog Ben spent hours running and swimming in the sea there!
We really loved exploring the old Whitby town and hiking up all the steps to the abbey - the views made the effort worthwhile!
Our stay at the Goatshed was excellent-we could not have wished for anything better.I would certainly recommend it and will be looking to go again next year!

The Goat Shed was the perfect place to spend our 10 year wedding anniversary. Lovely walks close by and friendly pubs (which welcomed our dog Busta!)...all in all a perfect place to spend a week relaxing. Highly recommend the Goat Shed for couples wanting to get away from it all.
good quiet and plesant place to stay

We had a wonderful stay at the Goat Shed. We found it warm, snug and it had everything for a Romantic week away from the normal hussle and bussle of life.
We enjoyed walks out around the area, Fishing in Whitby and Robin Hood Bay and plenty of drinks and meals at the inviting Flyindales Inn in Robin Hood Bay. It's a place that we'll return to for sure.

It's right what people say once you've been to the Yorkshire coast you'll want to go back. The Goat Shed is perfectly placed for exploring the surrounding areas. It is set in the beautiful hills with views of the coast. The accomadation was excellent, comfy and clean. The owners were friendly and helpful which always makes your stay even better. We will be going again and recommending it to our friends and family.

not quite as expected
Left on 12/18/2009 for a stay in October 2009 | mrs j hollis
although the cottage was well furnished and had all the necessary equiptment and ultensils which were spotlessly clean the floors had not been swept properly especially the edges i had to do them again and they were thick with dust and dog hairs which we found unpleasant and upset our dog as he couldnt stop smelling around the room until i had swept and mopped all the floors. Also the courtyard wasnt really small dog friendly but we did have use of a small paddock but we had to carry our dog as the stones underfoot was uncomfortable for him.
get what you pay for

Freindly, helpful and fresh eggs and milk on arrival. spacious living, good location. Due to nature of barn conversion there are few windows so no view- definitely a cottage for those who want to go out for the day- cosy in the evening, good central heating, adequate bathroom facilities,(good towels). had and issue with the velux window over the bed- it was midsummer and there was no blind so had to make do with a bin bag and some stickytape.kitchen equipment was very sparse, definitely a cottage for those who want to eat out and not cook at home. would suit a couple but really not so good with a child.Shame as the farm animals good. be prepared to hop out to open the gate a lot.
