Property Description

"Charming cottages situated in a scenic holiday location, which form an ideal base from which to explore the stunning scenery of the North Yorkshire Coast..."

Killerby Old Hall and its 7 cottages are ideal for a countryside holiday whilst being less than 2 miles from the beach of Cayton Bay. Guests can enjoy the nature reserve and lake area, or relax in the indoor heated swimming pool. The accommodation ranges from the Old Hall, sleeping 10 in period splendour, through to cosy Crow’s Nest which sleeps 2. Set in a pretty courtyard, each cottage is different yet has its own sitting-out area with patio furniture and BBQ.
Killerby Old Hall is situated between the coastal resorts of family friendly Filey, with its cobble landing and pretty promenade, and Scarborough, with its vibrant South Bay and naturally picturesque North Bay, located on part of Britain’s heritage coast. The Stephen Joseph Theatre, famed throughout the county, puts on a number of Alan Aykbourn productions. To the north, across the stunning North Yorkshire Moors, lies the port of Whitby; famous for its connections to Captain James Cook and Dracula. Robin Hood’s Bay, a former fishing village with a smugglers past, has quaint streets which lead visitors to a small, sandy cove and rock pools. Heading inland, find the historic market town of Pickering, where the famous North Yorkshire Moors steam train begins its journey. Access Dalby Forest through the attractive village of Thornton-le-Dale and be sure to stop for an ice cream. The forest offers a range of activities including mountain bike tracks, or for those feeling adventurous there is Go Ape. It is also a popular picnic destination which is surrounded by walks that the whole family can enjoy. Travel a little further afield to Castle Howard with its stunning house and grounds. The ancient, Roman walled city of York sits just an hour up the A64, a famously haunted city with many attractions such as the railway museum, river trips and excellent shopping. To the south along the coast, the Cleveland Way leads to dramatic Flamborough Head and the Bempton RSPB Sanctuary. The village of Cayton is a 500 yard stroll, with its pub, post office and shop. Full amenities are just over 4 miles away in Scarborough. Shop and pub 500 yards.

Former stable, almost identical to KKW, nestling to one side of the courtyard overlooking the beautiful orchard offering comfortable accommodation. Beamed open-plan living room with wood-burning stove and well-equipped kitchen/dining area. French windows opening onto a paved terrace overlooking the orchard with barbecue area and patio furniture. Double bedroom. Twin bedroom with additional single bed (for +1). Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Perfect cottage location, handy for coast and North Yorkshire Moors. April 2012.
  2. Property was excellent. It was very peaceful as it was situated down a long drive. Very good location, in between Scarborough and Filey and a mile away from Cayton Beach. Very relaxing and great that it had its own games room and swimming pool! The Christmas tree and outside fairy lights (along with a great welcome pack, including champagne) was just the icing on the cake. We could not have asked for a better place in which to see in the New Year and our children have had a ball. My eldest son said it was the best holiday ever!! Thank you. Dec 2011.
  3. This was better than expected. Superb welcome by the owners and both were very helpful. Lovely cottage and very comfortable. Oct 2011.
  4. Excellent Cottage, very clean and cosy. Aug 2011.
  5. Comfortable accommodation in a delightful setting. April 2011.
  6. Made very welcome in this lovely cottage nestling in East Yorkshire. Lovely touches we appreciated very much. We hope to come back soon. Aug 2010.
  7. The property which we spent a week there was a clean, comfortable, cosy and well equipped cottage. We enjoyed the swimming pool and games room. June 2010.
  8. Clean, spacious, great garden, facilities, friendly staff and great welcome pack. May 2010.

  11. Lovely cottage, every wish catered for. Had a wonderful weekend with our two grandchildren. We used pool and games room. It was a well thought out property and we could not have wished for more in terms of location, comfort, activities and a thoughtful welcome pack much appreciated and thanks to all concerned. Feb 2010.
  12. A lovely cottage well equipped, warm and cosy, weather wasn’t good but didn’t mind spending time in front of the log burning stove, would definitely book again. Oct 2009.

  18. The noise insulation is fantastic - we didn’t hear anything on either side of us and they didn’t hear us (with a 6 year old). Great place to stay with kids as the swimming pool is always there if the weather turns bad. Highly recommended. March 2008.
  19. The cottage was in a central location to explore both the North Yorkshire countryside and coast. Sept 2006.
  20. Nice touches with flowers, chocolates, and wine on arrival. Aug 2006.
