About Grange Farm Holiday Cottage

Grange Farm Holiday Cottage is a hit with families and groups of friends who love that its relaxed and easygoing style still feels unique. The 200-year-old farmhouse can sleep up to 14 people in five bedrooms, and its location makes it perfect for exploring both the beautiful Yorkshire coast and the stunning North Yorkshire Moors National Park. The Hare and Hounds gastropub is also within walking distance adding to the appeal.

Grange Farm is in High Hawkser - a friendly village that is a short drive (or one hour walk) from the coast at Whitby. The old Scarborough to Whitby railway line has been transformed into a popular traffic-free route, passing through the village and providing stunning views of the North Yorkshire and Cleveland Heritage coast and countryside for remarkably little effort for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Another recommended walk is the route from the village to Robin Hoods Bay, taking in a mere 3.7 miles of the 109-mile Cleveland Way footpath that stretches around the border of the National Park from Helmsley in the west, up to Saltburn-by-the-Sea and south to Scarborough and Filey.

Grange Farm is conveniently close to some of the area’s best attractions yet peacefully removed from summer crowds and day trippers. At just 2.5 miles from the cottage, Whitby is within reach by foot or bicycle if you prefer not to drive, or you can use the regular bus service that runs through the village. There is plenty here to keep everyone happy including a visit to the ruins of Whitby Abbey, which helped inspire Bram Stoker’s setting for his famous gothic horror novel, Dracula, in 1890. The famous explorer, Captain Cook, was an apprentice in Whitby and his former home is now a museum celebrating his life. Whitby also has several other museums and galleries, as well as plenty of shops and places to eat and drink.

Whitby is one of the best-known beaches on the North Yorkshire Coast, with others including Runswick Bay (great for families), Kettleness (good for fossils) and Sandsend. Upgang can be accessed via a path leading down from the golf course and is good if you want to avoid summer crowds, or set up at Whitby Tate Hill Beach at around sunset and cook a supper of sausages over a campfire. Like Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay is also just over two miles from Grange Farm and provides a wide choice of places to shop, eat and drink. It is part of the Dinosaur Coast and, while the walk back up to the car (if you drive) can feel steep at the end of a fun day, the unspoiled, rugged beauty of this part of the coast more than makes up for it.

Once you have booked your stay at Grange Farm, then the rest of your holiday plans will fall easily into place. It is a wonderful location at any time of year, whether you are getting all the kids and cousins together for a summer holiday by the beach, are catching up with old friends for long walks and relaxed lunches in country pubs, or need somewhere spacious to celebrate Christmas with all your favourite people.

Location (The North York Moors)

Accommodation Comprises:

Although the exact age of Grange Farm is unknown, the house is thought to be at least 200 years old. Thanks to sympathetic owners, it has been expanded and modernised while retaining its unique quirks and character that mark it out as being a 19th Century property.


  • Long, south facing conservatory that overlooks the south-facing garden and benefits from lots of natural light. The original wall of the house forms a tactile feature wall, while leather sofas provide quiet places to sit and read.
  • Main living room which is a sociable space with a stone fireplace housing a gas fire, comfortable leather sofas, a TV with DVD player and music system. The owners have thoughtfully provided books and games for guests to enjoy during their stay.
  • Third sitting room, called the Yellow Room, which provides even more space for socialising. This room also has ample seating and a music system, as well as an attractive vaulted ceiling.
  • Spacious dining room with a table big enough to seat 14 people, as well as an efficient wood burner that adds ambience as well as extra warmth to the room in winter.
  • Kitchen conveniently located next to the dining room, and well equipped with everything modern guests expect in a self-catering cottage.
  • Utility room next to the kitchen housing a washing machine and dryer, as well as an iron and ironing board.
  • Cloakroom with a WC and handbasin.


Most of the bedrooms are on the first floor. Each one has a flatscreen television and a handbasin, and the beds will be made up for your arrival. Two travel cots are available on request, although guests will need to bring cot sheets/bedding.

  • There are two family rooms on this floor - one with a king-sized bed and full-sized bunks, and the other with a double bed and bunks.
  • Two further twin rooms provide sleeping space for four more people, bringing the number of guests accommodated on this floor to 12.
  • Family bathroom featuring a full-sized bath with shower overhead, WC and handbasin.
  • There is an extra cloakroom with WC and handbasin.

Top Floor:

  • Formerly the attic, the entire top floor of the house has been converted into an elegant master suite with a king-sized bed, original beams and good storage. The ensuite has a bath under the Velux window, WC and handbasin.

Outside: The enclosed garden and patio is south facing and benefits from lots of daylight even in winter. There is private, off-street parking for up to four cars next to the cottage.

Additional Information: All utilities and linen are provided. Guests need to bring towels and cot bedding (if required), or can arrange towel-hire from the owner. Logs for the wood burner can be purchased locally. The owner can provide two travel cots, two high chairs and a stair-gate. Short breaks are possible depending on availability. No smoking and sorry but no pets.
