Crag House Farm Barns

Whitby, Yorkshire

2 cottages – from log-burner to LED mood lights, treat of a country retreat in the North York Moors National Park. Huge fun for all


2 places


Each sleep 6


It’s all such a treat. The white doves and verdant lawns. The soaring views over Danby Dale and the National Park. The large gardens and sheltered barbecue areas – private, apart from the odd sheep peeping in. Lofty and light, the award-winning barn conversions each sleep six in stylish comfort. In Beacon View, exotic rugs and leather sofas set off a beautifully hewn oak framework, cushions soften Yorkshire stone window seats, flagged floors are heated underfoot and the master bedroom is on the ground floor – good for the less than nimble. If you’re not chilling up in the gallery, you’ll be in the open-plan kitchen, perched on a church pew or lining up wine glasses on an antique butcher’s block. And finally to bed – but not before a splash in the double-ended, roll-top bath with a built-in sound system. Logs are free, the wine is own-label, warm scones wait in the oven. And if you need more sophisticated catering, your eco-minded hosts can arrange that, too. Fabulous for family parties, for walks in the Moors, for wowing friends and anyone who appreciates timeless architecture and design. Bram Stoker fans can take a trip to Whitby. Huge fun.

The cottage exceeded our expectations, It was extremely comfortable and very well equipped for a family stay, It was pristinely clean which was important to us as we had a very small baby in the party. We were warm and cosy even when it was snowing outside. Fabulous views and peaceful. A memorable family holiday,

This is one if the most beautiful places we have stayed at in the uk. The views from the property are truly stunning to wake up to. Crag House Farm Barns have been furnished to make your stay as homely and comfortable as possible to provided the perfect holiday stay. We have some wonderful family memories of our Easter break and hope to return again to this relaxing retreat.

Nicki, Cambridge

Without doubt the best self catering accommodation I have stayed in. Liz was incredibly helpful in terms of both our stay and recommendations and Dale View was even more gorgeous that the photos suggest. The house is equipped with everything you could need (even lavender oil for the bath!) and the standard of all the furniture/fitttings is superb. We had a wonderful relaxing weekend. If you go - have the Danby Beacon lit. But don’t follow the satnav using the postcode!

Sarah, Huddersfield

Six of us plus baby stayed for a week in Dale View Barn just before Easter. The cottage lived up to everything we had read about it and proved to be easily spacious enough for us all. Liz and Danny were very welcoming and couldn't have done more to make our stay really enjoyable. The weather was kind and the surrounding countryside was at its best. There were loads of places to visit and things to do in the area so that everyone in our large group was catered for. Without doubt, we would highly recommend the cottage without reservation.

Linda, Abingdon

Four of us stayed in Dale View for four nights in late March. This is a truly beautiful barn conversion with stunning views across Danby Dale from the wonderful gardens. The sun shone for all of our stay and Liz and Danny were the perfect hosts too, giving us great tips on places to visit and where to eat. We all had a great time and will definitely visit again just as soon as we can. Just perfect!

Richard, Cheltenham

Completely lovely and we relaxed as soon as we walked in the door. Wonderful walks, a choice of great places to eat and drink or just stay in the beautiful barn and chill. Would love to return in the summer, hopefully for longer, enjoy the outdoor space and explore the wider area more. Liz and Danny were there if needed and have made the most beautiful barn conversions into a dream place to stay.

Clare, Salisbury

Perfect in every way. Dale View Barn is absolutely beautiful, the views are amazing and our hosts brilliant. I cannot recommend Cragg House Farm Barns highly enough. The location was breathtaking, even in December! A wonderful place to spend a family new year - we didn't want to leave!! Thank you Liz and Danny, you provided everything and more needed for a wonderful time (oh, and the sun shone every day too - beautiful).

Karon, Buckinghamshire

Whilst we were only able to spend 4 days in Crag House Barn, we enjoyed it immensely. The standard of barn accommodation is superb in every detail and all the amenities were top class. The setting is delightful right in the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors and very secluded. Liz & Danny made us feel very welcome and were on hand should we have needed them, which we did not. Most highly recommended.
