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.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The space, facilities and location all made this an excellent choice for our wider family holiday despite variable weather. The holiday wasn’t cheap being at school holiday time but for our purposes it worked well and gave our 3 generations and, effectively 4 families, time, space and enough variety of activities to give us enough time together yet enough opportunity to do things separately. April 2012.
  2. We were a group of 11 who stayed at Killerby Old Hall for 3 nights. The whole group enjoyed themselves and found the accommodation wonderful. We had a relaxing time in beautiful surroundings. The owners were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. It was my 50th birthday and I will always have lovely memories of the time spent with my friends at Killerby. We are hoping to return and would highly recommend it. Feb 2012.
  3. Excellent house for a large group. Our group was 8 adults and 4 babies. We all fit comfortably into the house. Lovely facilities. Welcome pack was a nice touch. only 4miles from the beach. Dec 2011.
  4. Great family accommodation. Couldn’t have wished for more. The kids really enjoyed themselves, the pool was great. Nov 2011.
  5. Absolutely wonderful residence. The hall itself is stunning - fabulous period details, along with stunning modern house bath and shower rooms. I cannot think of anything we needed during the week that wasn’t there in the Hall for us. The front lawn is huge, and was brilliant for family games. The pool table in the basement was a boon for the teenagers (and Granddad) in our party. The owners were lovely and made us feel very welcome. The housekeeper was a thoroughly delightful lady. Ten of us stayed (with an extra one for dinner one day - plenty of room around the dinner table!) and we all would like to return next year. Aug 2011.
  6. The house is beautiful and very well-equipped. The wealth of different spaces make it ideal for larger groups to do their own thing so you’re not on top of each other, but with rooms big enough for communal activities as well, including the lovely dining room. The library was our favourite - so cosy and snug, just right for telling tall tales late into the evening. March 2011.
  7. Large clean property in good location. Sept 2010.
  8. Excellent for a large family gathering. Wonderful old house. Superbly equipped. Sauna was a big hit! Garden was HUGE. Highly recommend. Aug 2010.
  9. Good quality furnishings, great location and all the equipment we needed to cater for a party of 10. Decor a little garish in parts but in no way detracted from the enjoyment of our stay. We would book again. April 2010.
  10. Big, warm comfortable house which was well equipped... although an extra bathroom would be a plus. Dec 2009.
  11. The property was spacious and well maintained. We were particularly impressed that the carpet/ soft furnishings were clean and not showing signs of wear and tear. The welcome package of flowers chocolates and basic food supplies was very welcoming. Oct 2009.
  12. A wonderfully atmospheric place to stay with plenty of history! Perfect for a large family get-together. Very spacious and suitably private from the rest of the holiday park. Lovely big garden at the the front for kids to play and the family to eat out. A perfect place location wise, and near to one of the nicest beaches on the east coast at Caton Bay! The staff were wonderfully helpful, but to be honest we didn’t want for anything! Aug 2009.
  13. Size and character; extensive front lawn and side garden. June 2009.
  14. What a wonderful property! Great kitchen, comfortable lounge, great sauna, atmospheric snug with wonderful open fire and some really lovely bedrooms with very comfortable beds. Swimming pool was a good size, if a bit on the chilly side! Front lawn great for a game of cricket, side garden fab for a BBQ. We had a wonderful time - thanks. May 2008.
  15. All was wonderful we would recommend to all our friends and the hosts where very helpful. Sept 2008.
  16. Owner had problem with a leak in the house and dealt with it quickly and very efficient. Very helpful and lovely touch with wine, chocolate and flowers in both houses on arrival. March 2007.
  17. The accommodation was first class, it had everything you would require for a large house. April 2006.
  18. Beautiful house. March 2006.
