Property Description

Situated at Staithes, near Whitby, these former World War 1 army barracks are in an idyllic position close to the countryside and sea. Four of the barracks have been ingeniously and tastefully transformed to provide good quality accommodation retaining much rustic character and charm. The remaining 7 lodges retain their near original condition as a visual reminder of their former function. Each refurbished lodge has the added advantage of parking and an outdoor sitting area.
Situated just off the Cleveland Way, there are many fine moorland and cliff top walks as well as golf links nearby. There is a leisure centre 2 miles down the road and a 2-minute stroll down the cobbled street brings you to the centre of the picturesque fishing village with its small harbour nestling beneath rugged cliffs. Step back in time and walk the quaint narrow passages, as Captain James Cook himself must have done. Here in Staithes there are village shops, pubs, cafes and a restaurant. Why not travel on Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Express (the North Yorkshire Moors Railway) through ’Heartbeat’ country or visit Whitby and its famous Abbey which is 11 miles away.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. It was my 40th wedding anniversary and we could not have picked a better place, my 3 grandchildren played in a very safe garden and went fishing 3 minutes down road. The bedrooms were clean and tidy, we loved the one with the double bed plus bunk beds for a safe family sleep. it was big enough for a family of 10 plus the dog, lovely lovely place. My thanks to the people that own it. March 2012.
  2. Excellent property for big family groups their is plenty of room so its not over crowded, we would recommend to others and may come again. Oct 2011.
  3. Brilliant place to stay! Oct 2011.
  4. The property was perfect for a large family holiday with the dogs. It was spacious and had everything we needed. Not so posh that we couldn’t relax but comfortable, clean and very well equipped. We had a great holiday and would use it again. Aug 2011.
  5. Excellent, ammenities perfect. Dec 2010.
  6. Spacious, well furnished. Ideal for a family group. Plenty of room to be together and find your own space. Safe areas for children to play in and out. Lots of interest in the area and convenient to the old village of Staithes which can be reached on foot by road or footpath - located close to the Coastal path. Plenty of pubs, cafe’s and restaurants nearby. Easy access to the moors. Aug 2010.
  7. Exactly as described. Plenty of room. We had a fantastic time and I’m sure we’ll be returning. Jan 2010.
  8. A very large property with enclosed garden, so very safe for dogs/children. Aug 2009.
  9. Loved the spaciousness. And the outside sitting areas. June 2009.
  10. The size of the property was good for a party of 11. July 2009.
  11. We had a wonderful time and were very sad to leave. There is plenty of space so even though we were a large group we did not at any time feel as though we were falling over each other, and getting in each others way. The children enjoyed the space both inside and outside, and the village itself was beautiful. We were made welcome where ever we went, and hope to return one day. March 2009.
  12. Very spacious and well equipped. So perfect for a large group that we are keen to book again. May 2009.
  13. The holiday was enjoyed by everyone including our two dogs, a great dane and a cross terrier who happens to be an escape artist. The enclosed garden did confine him to the property as was stated in the accommodation details. He didn’t give up trying though. Thanks for a great holiday we would definately consider going again. Oct 2008.
  14. The accommodation is very spacious, plenty of room for everyone, very well located and thoroughly enjoyed by all of us. Feb 2008.
  15. The accommodation was excellent for our needs. It was thoroughly enjoyed by our family. March 2008.
  16. The size of the accommodation is excellent - we had a family get together and there was plenty of space to sit around the table and eat together and enough lounge space to talk in groups - excellent layout. Jan 2007.
  17. We loved the conservatory in Captain’s Quarters with the growing vine. We spent early evenings in this room having tea and reading and it was a very pleasant restful atmosphere. The rest of the living accommodation was excellent for a big party like ours. There was plenty of seating in both the conservatory and main living, a large dining table and sufficient chairs for all. Also much appreciated the well supplied kitchen when cooking for large numbers in terms of pans, pots, crockery and cutlery. Although the immediate appearance of the buildings was inevitably bizarre (they are converted barracks) the inside was well thought out and commodious. May 2007.
