Sleights Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Retreat Cottages in Whitby, North Yorkshire Moors, England - Cliff Farm – no longer a working farm but an oasis of calm within short distance of tourist plac

Luxury retreat cottages at Cliff House Farm (no longer a working farm) situated in fantastic location 0.5 miles from Sleights in the little hamlet of Iburndale within The North York Moors National Park. Consisting of 3 luxury stone cottages and owners farmhouse set around a sunny courtyard . Children aged 13 and over are welcome. Sleights is ideal for both a coastal and country holiday, situated just four miles from the picturesque Yorkshire coastline. It is also on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors with its rugged landscape. Though quiet, Sleights boasts a fish and chip shop, Radfords renowned local butchers/deli selling quality meats and Bothams Bakers. There is also a Spar grocery shop with a comprehensive off-licence open from 7.00am to 10.00pm daily. A Post Office is located within the Spar shop. There is public transport to the picturesque town of Whitby with cobbled streets and many eateries including The Magpie which was featured by Rick Stein. There are also a number of trendy bars/bistros for your culinary delight. The Abbey is quite theatrical overlooking the town and can be reached by climbing the famous 199 steps. We offer luxury accommodation for guests who would like a peaceful setting in beautiful surroundings. The cottages offered are quaint but not twee and are appointed to a very high standard, 2 with bespoke cabinet made kitchens in Farrow and Ball colours. The setting is ideal for a relaxing holiday but is very close to local beaches and visitor attractions. We are happy to advise on walks or restaurants. Each cottage has a beautiful fireplace with a log burning stove for those romantic nights. They are very well equipped with quality crockery and glassware. I am happy to provide things like a slow cooker for anyone who would like to use one.There are disposable BBQ's for use in our lawned BBQ area adjacent to the Summer House with seating in rattan sofa's. There are also deckchairs available and loungers and parasols for the summertime. There are candle lanterns and outdoor oil torches should you need them.This area is looking over the national park, where there is a gate to a beautiful circular walk taking around 2 hours. There is croquet for those who would like to partake, along with various lawn games - Jenga, connect 4 and lawn boules. It is our aim to make sure you will have a holiday making great memories .All cottages are renovated to a very high standard, even the external doors are insulated. They are very warm and cosy in winter, unlike some old cottages. They each have high spec bathrooms with good size shower cubicles and large raindrop shower heads and the towels and bed linen are of high quality, along with the beds to guarantee a good nights sleep. The larger cottage has two large soaking tubs where you can relax with a glass of wine and a candle lit lantern to ease those tired muscles after a hard days walking. The gardens are south facing with views of the national park hills with grazing cows.There is quality outdoor rattan garden furniture at each cottage for comfortably dining al fresco or partaking of breakfast, or just enjoying a coffee or a glass of wine after a busy day. Mr Ralphs Cottage and Drake Cottage have their own doggy safe garden which will keep in even the smallest of dogs. A waist high doggy washing bath with a warm shower is available for all doggies. The Coach House does not accept pets and has comfy rattan seating in the sunny courtyard. We have known people to go home with a tan in March!. As we only take children of 13 years and over the environment is very calming and 2 people have said they have not had to take sleeping tablets during their stay with us. People have commented that when you are in our little haven it feels like it is giving you a big comforting hug, but you can judge that for yourself! That is one of the things that we noticed when we bought the property but it is nice that other people have felt it too. We opened in 2014 and have already had guests returning again and again. A complimentary bottle of wine is left for each stay.

About Julie Milnes

My husband who is a retired bank manager and myself purchased the property and have put our heart and soul into creating 3 beautiful cottages of which 2 are doggy friendly, all in an idyllic setting. We are offering luxury accommodation for guests who would like a peaceful setting in beautiful surroundings. Our friends thought that we were mad to take on such a large building development and after a while, when the builder had told us that he didn't think anyone would have taken it on unless they were a builder, we began to think our friends were right but it seemed a good idea at the time! We were very naive but we soon learned how to project manage a development of this size and quickly understood that there was a lot of stress and sleepless nights involved. Because I had a romantic vision of how my little hamlet should look and nothing else would do, the budget as you see on TV programmes was blown out of the water but second best simply would not do in my mind. I hope you will be impressed with the results.

Julie Milnes purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Julie Milnes chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

Great location!!!!!The setting is peaceful and feels like you are away from it all, yet you are handy for Whitby (4 miles). Other beaches like Sandsend, Runswick Bay and Staithes are only a short drive away. We are close to local tourist attractions such as Goathland ( "Heartbeat country") and Grosmont where you can catch the steam train of a bygone era. You feel like you are far from the madding crowd but can be amongst it in no time at all. we are nestled in the valley which is a very sheltered position, with beautiful views over the hills of the National Park.ALL COTTAGES TRIMMED FOR THE FESTIVE SEASON DURING THE MONTH OF DECEMBER.From November to March the cottages are priced to entice couples for a winter break.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottages are newly converted with full gas central heating and all up to date thermal regulations, making sure your winter stay is very cosy. There is also the added benefit of a log burning stove for that romantic feel but you will not need it to feel warm.

A dog washing facility has been installed from January 2016 for the cottages that take a dog.

An excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, cosy but roomy cottage for two people. The standard of decor and furniture was superb and it is clean and maintained impeccably. It is quirky with lots of character and excellent modernisations.

The owners were helpful and friendly and we had a really good holiday. An excellent location too, for exploring North Yorkshire, the moors and coast.

Lovely home from home

  • 5 of 5

The coach house was very comfortable and well appointed. Everything was spotlessly clean on arrival. The cottage was well equipped with nice furniture, a large and comfortable bed and a lovely shower. Julie and Robert were very welcoming and friendly. The location is easy to find and convenient for visiting both for the coast and the moors. We shopped at the excellent bakery in the village several times. Whitby was quick and easy to get to and we ate out there a couple of evenings. We would stay here again without reservation.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just lovely and Robert and Julie so welcoming. An excellent base in a quiet location to explore the North Yorkshire countryside. The Coach House is well equipped for a self catering stay and we enjoyed being able to sit out in the courtyard.

Five star for dogs as well as humans

  • 5 of 5

The Coach House is a beautifully restored and furnished cottage, every attention to detail was met. We loved the decor, the bed, the large leather sofa in the upstairs sitting room in fact everything was perfect. There was even a bath outside complete with ramp (and hot and cold water) for dogs to be washed - and our's needed it after wading through copious mud at Falling Foss!

The owners Julie and Robert live in the farmhouse next door and were very helpful especially when we had an unexpected funeral to attend nearby at the end of our stay.

Thank you so much, we look forward to returning in the Autumn.
