Set in the grounds of an ancient manor house, between the Yorkshire Coast and North York Moors, this charming cottage lies in a stunning setting.

This wonderful cottage is part of Seaton Hall, an ancient manor house with over a thousand years of recorded history. For an authentic stay in somewhere truly unique, this is a perfect choice, immerse yourself in a holiday like no other. Sir Francis Bigod is named after a former resident, whose name is recorded in history as starting an armed Roman Catholic rebellion against King Henry VIII. This charming cottage looks out onto the patio which backs onto the sweeping estate grounds surrounding you, and the tree lined valleys and rolling countryside of the National Park beyond. On the ground floor there is a bespoke handcrafted kitchen with the dining area, as well as a separate spacious living room. In the evening sit back and relax on the comfortable sofas around the crackling wood burner. Nestled in a peaceful rural location, this is the perfect place to relax and take each day at your own pace. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other with twin beds, both with en-suite facilities, making this ideal for small families, friends or couples looking for a romantic break.

Seaton Hall has a fascinating past, the hall was named after the de Seton dynasty who resided from 1130 to 1307, and whose family made allegiances with and marriages to the Scottish Royal Family. Passed down through generations, before slipping into disrepair. The present owner purchased the estate in 2002. He has employed a team of specialist masons and craftsmen and has been lovingly rebuilding and restoring this incredible place of local heritage.

There is something to delight everyone in the area, with picturesque walking trails, including the Cleveland Way leading across the cliff tops. Many pretty coastal villages such as Runswick Bay, Robin Hoods Bay, Staithes and the historical seafaring town of Whitby will delight guests. Whitby, with its cobbled old town, independent shops and cafes, boat trips and the iconic Abbey ruins makes a great day out. Saltburn is a surfer’s paradise, with a beautiful Victorian pier. You can take a trip on the steam train across the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, taking in the views and visiting some beautiful villages along the way. For children you can ride the miniature train in Ruswarp before hiring a boat to row along the river. Youngsters are sure to be delighted playing on the beach as well as visiting the arcades and miniature golf in Whitby, for an extra special treat you can even take them to Flamingo Land theme park and zoo. This area is a haven for dogs, with lots of walks to choose from as well as many dog friendly cafes and pubs. This is sure to be a stay to remember, twined with history, culture and the surrounding countryside. Beach 1 mile. Shop ½ mile, pub 0.7 miles and restaurant 100 yards.
This property can be booked together with Seaton Court (UK31955), Seaton Cottage (UK31990), Lady De Seton (UK31956) and Seaton Mote (UK31992) to accommodate up to 28 guests.

    The cottage looks great on the website but once there it’s disappointing. Many things were broken or bodged or just not clean. We arrived on Friday 22 April and contacted the owner re broken blinds in both bedrooms and missing seal on the stove door. Was told that nothing could be done until Monday (why? Was the owner away for the weekend?) and was just fobbed off with excuses- nothing was seen to during the whole week. Cooking equipment was left filthy and rusty, the shower could not stay at either a stable temperature or pressure. I could go on but I think you’ve got the picture.
