Description from manager

A stunning luxury barn conversion with fabulous hot tub, private gardens and paddock, located in a beautiful village near the picturesque Runswick Bay.Ground Floor

With an idyllic setting, enter this imposing property via a lovely hallway with a seat bench and storage for coats and shoes. This then leads to the superb ‘living kitchen’ with a dining area which has a baronial feel – the lovely high ceilings with the magnificent original beams give the living space a spacious and light atmosphere and it’s an ideal spot to sit with a glass of wine and watch the chef hard at work!

Very well-equipped with quality appliances such as a retro Smeg fridge and Smeg kettle and toaster, plus a separate integral freezer, dishwasher, a large range gas oven plus, during the winter months, a wonderful Aga, this is an excellent kitchen with plenty of work surfaces to prepare meals.

In the dining area, which has a wall-mounted TV, is a long oak dining table with upholstered chairs to seat ten people – perfect to enjoy breakfast or to light candles in the evening and enjoy a long, leisurely dinner, sharing the day’s adventures.

Beyond the kitchen is a useful utility room which has a washing machine with integral dryer and space for airing clothes – such as bathing costumes as the family come in off the beach in the summer or outerwear for walkers during the autumn and winter months - plus an iron and ironing board.

The main living space is truly impressive; bordered by a unique and open staircase, there are essentially three areas to this vast room. Centrally is a small study area with a desk – ideal for writing postcards – plus comfortable leather chairs and book shelves – perfect to relax and read. At one end is a wonderful seating area, framing a log burning stove with comfortable leather Parker-Knoll style sofas, book cases, large screen TV with integral DVD player. The wooden antler-style chandeliers complete the magnificent styling of this exquisite property. French doors, with New England-style shutters, lead to the pretty terrace, hot tub and the garden beyond.

On the opposite side of this large room is a games area with an 8ft billiard/snooker table complete with wall-mounted cues, if you fancy trying your potting skills?

There is also a charming guest suite on the ground floor with an inner hallway, double bedroom with king size bed plus a shower room with shower, WC and hand wash basin.

First Floor

To the first floor are three bedrooms plus a house bathroom.

There is a master bedroom that sleeps three people, with a king size bed, wardrobe, cheval mirror and dressing table. There is a sofa chair in this bedroom, which converts to a single bed to make it into a family room if required.

A charming twin bedroom has two full size 3' beds plus there is a single bedroom.

The house bathroom is stylish with a wonderful free-standing bath with shower attachment, WC and hand wash basin.


To the outside is a superb flagged terrace area with table and chairs to enjoy al fresco dining – or just to take your first cup of the day and sit and relax – it’s a private area, not overlooked by neighbours.

On the decked areas and slightly elevated is a glorious, good size hot tub – how wonderful to lie back and relax whilst looking out over the lawned garden, which has shrubs, trees, flowers and those distant views of the sea plus an adjoining paddock, which is ideal for children to play.

This is a truly gorgeous house - not to be missed! - with private parking for up to four cars.


Town: The historic fishing village of Runswick Bay is without doubt one of the true gems of the Yorkshire Coast, if not the whole of the UK. This picturesque SE-facing village situated 9 miles from Whitby sits in a beautiful sheltered sandy-beached bay backed by spectacular cliffs and moorland scenery. Relatively un-commercialised and with vehicular traffic restricted, the village provides the perfect setting in which to relax and unwind. Relish in taking long walks on either the sandy beach or along the Cleveland Way on the clifftop above. There is much to do in the local area, whether it's visiting Whitby with its famous Abbey, Staithes with its pretty shops, cafes and superb art gallery, or touring the dramatic North York Moors. The lower village houses a local inn serving food along with a spectacularly situated cafe, whilst nearby Hinderwell provides 2 inns, a fish and chip shop, a local butchers and a garage/petrol station. A Co-op is situated at Staithes 2 miles away.
