Main Barn is a beautiful, semi-detached barn conversion resting in Borrowby near Staithes, North Yorkshire.

With a large, open-plan living space, stunning rural surroundings and a rustic interior, Main Barn is perfect for a large family gathering in the countryside.

There is plenty of off-road parking for guests and the exterior features traditional stone walls, red tiled roof and charming cottage windows.

Enter the property to find many quaint characteristics throughout, such as the open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting area with tall ceilings, wooden beams and white brick walls; host a big family dinner around the dining table before enjoying a games night on the sofas in the seating area by the warmth of the woodburning stove.

The ground floor also features a handy utility with space for muddy boots, as well as a washing machine, fridge, basin and WC.

Ideal for elderly relatives or young families, small steps take you down to the two ground-floor double bedrooms, with impressive brick feature walls and a neighbouring bathroom, complete with a bath, shower over and a heated towel rail to toast your towel whilst you get ready for the day ahead.

Climb the spiral staircase to reach the first floor landing, where there is a little breakout corner with a beanbag and TV, a perfect spot in Main Barn for teenagers and children.

There are also two more bedrooms, a single with a pull out bed and a twin, with rustic wooden beams and plenty of space for storage, as well as another bathroom, so there won't be any long queues to get ready in the mornings.

At the front of Main Barn, you can enjoy your morning coffee or a picnic on the patio with outdoor furniture; ideal for taking in the idyllic surroundings and planning your days out.

If you want a break from cooking on your holiday, The Fox Inn is a traditional pub just a short journey away, or venture into Staithes, an attractive seaside village with a variety of restaurants and cafés, as well as cobbled streets, a sandy beach and shops to stock up on the essentials.

Journeying south east, you will reach Whitby, offering a livelier day out in a popular seaside town; stroll along the large, sandy beach with fish & chips, explore the fascinating ruins of Whitby Abbey and visit the 12th century church of St Mary.

A large town lying north of Main barn, Middlesbrough offers plenty of cultural pursuits, such as the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, Dorman Museum, with exhibitions ranging from natural history to wartime, or Roseberry Topping is a winding hike up to a distinctive jagged cliff for amazing, panoramic views.

For a memorable family holiday in a perfect rural setting, make Main Barn your rustic home-from-home.

About the location


Whitby 10 miles.

The charming and sleepy seaside village of Staithes, with its cobbled streets and back alleys, is something of an artist’s dream. Its pretty houses and cottages are clustered around the old harbour and surrounded by high craggy cliffs on three sides, with a sheltered sandy beach set amongst the rocky coastline. The village can claim connections with Captain Cook who was apprenticed to a draper near the harbour. Nowadays, Staithes is a must for anyone visiting the Yorkshire Coast and has a good selection of pubs, shops and tea rooms. Staithes is still home to an RNLI lifeboat station and a small fleet of cobles (fishing boats) landing fish, crab and lobster, with boat trips for birdwatching, fishing and even whale watching available. It’s also the location of the popular BBC children’s TV series, Old Jack’s Boat. Staithes has a strong attraction for artists, with an annual Art and Heritage Festival, galleries and artists studios with art courses and workshops regularly on offer. There’s a free Illusion Trail, which guides visitors around the network of ginnels (alleyways), with trail guides available locally. The best views of the town can be enjoyed from the Cleveland Way which runs down the cliff to the sea’s edge. Altogether a superb base for exploring the Yorkshire Coast, visiting the larger resorts of Whitby or Scarborough and enjoying the moorland villages of the North York Moors National Park.
