The property

Staithes 1.8 miles.

The Old Police House is a charming, detached property resting in the hamlet of Hinderwell, near Staithes, and was formerly the police station for the local area.

Dating back to the 1880s, this characterful abode offers a pet-friendly accommodation with near-by shop and pub, ideal for a family or group of friends looking to explore North Yorkshire’s coast and countryside.

Park off-road and be welcomed into this lovely property, discovering light and airy living spaces, beginning with a stylishly fitted living/dining space, ideal for reclining beside the electric fire at the end of the day, or indulging in a hearty meal.

There is also the option of a pleasant snug located in the conservatory, so why not catch up on a good book in a moment of quiet?

The kitchen boasts contemporary furniture and an opulent feel, catering to your culinary needs with a great variety of amenities, and there is a handy utility to take care of your washing.

When sleep calls, three bedrooms await your rest, each with storage and homely décor, so choose between a ground-floor king-size with Smart TV serviced by a ground-floor shower room,a second king-size, and a twin, plus large bathroom on the first floor.

Outside, dine alfresco on the patio before heading out to explore the local area.

Hinderwell is a small settlement offering a butchers’ shop and two pubs, The Brown Cow and The Badger Hounds.

Just a mile away above the beautiful village of Staithes is a Co-op store and down in the village are a few independent stores, more eateries, and a charming harbour.

From the property it is barely a mile to Runswick Bay with its sweeping, sandy beach and there are beaches at Skinningrove, Saltburn and Whitby.

Robin Hood’s Bay is another place not to miss.

Whitby is well worth a visit, offering the intriguing abbey ruins, a local beach, museum, Dracula Experience and more.

Guests are also within reach of the incredible scenery of the North York Moors National Park, ideal for hiking with your four-legged family member, birdwatching, and mountain biking.

All of this and so much more with a stay at The Old Police House.
