Very helpful hosts, great house in a beautiful location. We would love to return soon. Thank you for a great stay.


Dale View Barn is an excellent, property in an outstanding location. The kitchen is equipped to a very high standard and the property as a whole is Ideal for large family gatherings. We spent a long weekend there celebrating my husband's 70th birthday and it could not have been more enjoyable.


The best way to describe our stay is that we never wanted to leave. The location is idyllic, the barn is very spacious and well equipped, the beds are very comfortable, and our hosts were superb. We have family breaks in holiday cottages every year in different locations and this was one of the best.


Lovely venue for large family group. Very helpful owners!


We had the most wonderful time and John and Trish were fabulous hosts.


I booked a weekend away for my family, ( wife,children / spouses,grandchildren,sister and father in law ), to celebrate my 65th birthday. We all agreed it was a fabulous cottage with stunning views and only a half hour from Whitby. The property was ideal with everything you could need, including a little study area with plenty of games etc to keep my young grandchildren happy. Both Mr and Mrs Anderson were very welcoming and friendly and their property is a credit to them.

Area Information

Fryup Dale
Fryup Dale is a picturesque, peaceful hamlet in North Yorkshire set around breathtaking countryside of the North York Moors and is one of the dales of the Esk Valley. The Coast to Coast trail runs at the top of the dale. Fryup is thought to have derived from 'frigga' an old English personal name and 'up' or 'hop' meaning valley. It is an ideal location for walkers and looks to the eye like a patchwork quilt made up of walls, hedges farms and a few houses and cottages. Whitby is only 11 miles. Coastal villages, Staithes (CBeebies favourite Old Jack's Boat is filmed here), Runswick Bay and Sandsend to name just a few are 20 to 30 minutes drive away. Goathland (Heartbeat's Aidensfield), Helmsley and Pickering (home to the North York Moors Railway) are also within driving distance. The iconic Lion Inn at Blakey, which is the highest pub on the moors is only a 10 minute vdrive - please call in, if only to see the photographs of the snowdrifts that the pub experiences in severe winters, but also for the excellent food which is served all day. The historic city of York is only one hours drive, making Fryup Dale a perfect location for exploring the Moors, the coast and the Yorkshire heritage.
