Cobnut Cottage is in fact two adjoining cottages which can be booked together to accommodate four people. Each of the smaller cottages have comfortable seating and dining table and chairs for four people to sit and relax and eat together. The cottages have been converted from the old barns adjacent to the owner's country house and retain much of the original character and charm. Each has a wonderful cosy atmosphere, with original beams on display and providing the structure for the gallery bedroom. The finish is to a very high standard with quality fittings and fixtures throughout including granite worktops in the kitchens and bathrooms.

There is a shared games room which includes a 3/4 size snooker table, table tennis, table football and many books, board games and DVDs. The owners can provide special event dinners in the house along with guided walks in the area. Tai Chi lessons and personal tuition available.

Situated just one and a half miles from the popular, busy fishing village of Staithes, the properties are surrounded by open countryside and there is access to a 4 acre paddock where holidaymakers can sit and enjoy the views. These well equipped and maintained cottages are personally supervised by the owners.

Shepherds Hut
This beautiful timber framed Shepherds Hut stands on its own in a glorious south facing meadow above the charming fishing village of Staithes. With a luxurious king-size bed, comfortable sofa, FreeSat TV and a terrace with panoramic views over the woods, valley and the sea, it is a perfect "get-away from it all". This haven of peace is available to book as an accommodation on its own or as additional accommodation, perfect for a couple when friends are staying in  Acorn Cottage (WA040) or Catkin Cottage (WA041). Both of these cottages have enough comfortable seating and a table and chairs for four guests so friends can relax, sit and dine together in a cottage or gather at the Shepherds Hut to enjoy the views from the terrace perhaps over a glass of wine. Further accommodation can be booked in Oak Cottage (WA042) or Willow Cottage (WA043). The hut is fully insulated and there is a small electric heater for cooler evenings. Free WiFi is available but dogs are not permitted in the Shepherds Hut. There is car parking in the main car park for one car.
