    “We had a great stay at the The Old Dairy.”

    The house is beautiful, very clean and in an amazing location with a great view. The house had so much in it and great touches with lots of toys for children. Thanks again for a great stay. We recommend this accommodation for any holidays you are planning on the area.

The property

The Old Dairy, Ellerby, is a splendid four-bedroom, dog friendly, Grade II listed barn conversion resting in the beautiful village of Ellerby with its renowned local inn, with Runswick Bay within walking distance and Staithes just a short drive away.

Offering a spacious farmhouse kitchen, two separate staircases, smart TVs and rural sea views from the enclosed private garden with patio area, The Old Dairy, Ellerby is located within the North York Moors National Park and is a great place to explore this beautiful region of Yorkshire. Be welcomed into the spacious farmhouse kitchen, where you can cook-up much-loved recipes for your loved ones, with the help of the oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher.

You and your guests can savour a delicious meal around the dining table for eight, as the fizz is opened, and you toast to a wonderful getaway.

There is also a Smart TV and speaker in the kitchen to entertain you while you are preparing food or relaxing watching the chef hard at work!

You'll find a washer and dryer in the utility room just off the kitchen plus an iron and ironing board, so there is no need to bring your whole wardrobe away with you!

Snuggle up with loved ones in the tastefully decorated sitting room, as you tuck-in to bowls of popcorn and begin a family movie marathon on the Smart TV.

There is also a king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower room on the ground level, which is perfect for those with limited mobility.

Also on the ground floor is a separate cloakroom for avoiding those morning queues.

Two staircases provide easy access for two families or bigger groups to the first level, which has three additional bedrooms, one king and two doubles, served by two well-equipped bathrooms.

The master bedroom accommodates two guests in a sumptuous king-size bed, and includes two bedside cabinets, a wardrobe with full length mirror and chest of drawers.

There is also a seating area in this bedroom where you can relax with your morning coffee or watch your favourite show on the Smart TV.

Two further double rooms are available both of which are well equipped with wardrobes, chest of drawers, mirrors and lighting.

One of the rooms has a full-size cot for younger guests.

There is a family bathroom at each side of the upper floor, one of which has space for airing clothes.

To the outside there is a private enclosed garden.

A patio area with table and chairs to relax al fresco is complimented by a lawned garden with the views of the distant sea which is ideal for children to play.

In the morning, prepare for the day in style with a soothing soak in the bath or a revitalising shower, before heading out to the enclosed garden to enjoy a steaming cup of coffee and the impressive views over the open fields and out towards the coast.

Enjoy an evening out with loved ones at the Ellerby Residential Country Inn, just a short walk away from your home, where you can treat your family to a delicious meal and enjoy the local ales.

A short walk or brief drive will bring you to Runswick Bay Beach, which was previously named the "Best Beach in the United Kingdom" by the Times in 2020, and where you may beachcombe or paddle along the secluded coastline.

The Cleveland Way, a 109-mile-long walking track, is nearby and walkers will appreciate the opportunity to experience a variety of landscapes and the highest point on the east coast of England.

Head to the village of Staithes, where you'll find a wide range of amenities including stores, restaurants, and the Captain Cook and Staithes Heritage Centre where you can discover more about the explorer.

Be sure to visit Whitby, where Bram Stoker's Dracula is claimed to have been inspired by the Gothic Whitby Abbey.

A day at Whitby's beach and a show at the Whitby Pavilion are among the options available to those who want to experience the town's history in the style of Bram Stoker's Bram Stoker's Dracula.

About the location


Staithes 2 miles; Whitby 9 miles; Saltburn-by-the-Sea 10 miles.

The historic fishing village of Runswick Bay is without doubt one of the true gems of the Yorkshire Coast, if not the whole of the UK. This picturesque SE-facing village situated 9 miles from Whitby sits in a beautiful sheltered sandy-beached bay backed by spectacular cliffs and moorland scenery. Relatively un-commercialised and with vehicular traffic restricted, the village provides the perfect setting in which to relax and unwind. Relish in taking long walks on either the sandy beach or along the Cleveland Way on the clifftop above. There is much to do in the local area, whether it's visiting Whitby with its famous Abbey, Staithes with its pretty shops, cafes and superb art gallery, or touring the dramatic North York Moors. The lower village houses a local inn serving food along with a spectacularly situated cafe, whilst nearby Hinderwell provides 2 inns, a fish and chip shop, a local butchers and a garage/petrol station. A Co-op is situated at Staithes 2 miles away.
