About the Owner

We are Adrian and Amanda with our three children Amy, Robert and Sam and Ella our dog. We all helped in lovingly converting this former Blacksmith's garage into a beautiful 2 bedroomed cottage with en-suite facilities off each bedroom. It has the luxury of underfloor heating and a log burner perfect for relaxing in front of after a full days exploring the stunning North York Moors National Park areas and Yorkshire Coast close by. We welcome pets (2 medium sized dogs maximum) at our property as it is an ideal area for dogs as we are surrounded in fields and pathways with no traffic nearby. The views are stunning from our property and look over the picturesque fishing village of Staithes and out to sea. We have tried to make sure your stay here is memorable with well-equipped facilities.

From the Owner

Springhouse Cottage used to be a Blacksmiths garage which had been left empty and untouched for 35 years. We decided we would convert it into a two bedroomed cottage to a standard we would only be happy with. We converted it ourselves and it took just 6 months from start to finish but was well worth it as it is situated in a beautiful part of the world with breathtaking views over countryside and out to sea. It is situated on the Yorkshire Coast near the quaint fishing village of Staithes, but in the middle of nowhere and is so tranquil but ideal for walking and dog lovers.
