wonderful cottage,everything on hand inside,only downside,lack of view from windows,but otherwise very nice indeed.
We travelled to The Goatshed from Sale in Cheshire on a very cold, wet and wintry Monday morning in October! There was fog, sleet and driving rain as we drove up the M62 and I was wondering what on earth had possessed me to book a week away in Yorkshire in October! However, as we arrived at the cottage in the farm grounds - the sun was shining and the sky had turned to a beautiful clear blue with not a cloud in sight! The owner - Mrs Peberdy - came to meet us with the cottage keys and gave us a very friendly welcome. She asked us to let her know if we needed anything and told us she would be available to help at any time. The cottage has been lovingly renovated.It was very spacious and comfortable and well equipped.Central heating radiators timed to come on early morning and evening meant we were always warm and cosy! The weather was kind to us all week and we were able to take advantage of the Goatshed's fabulous location every day! It was ideally located for us - just a 10 minute drive into Whitby or 15 minutes or so to Robin Hood's Bay - both really great places with lots of exploring and things to see. Sandsend - just a little outside Whitby was charming - the cottages by the river are picture postcard material! Scarborough, Filey,and Bridlington were all easily accessible and worth visiting as was Goatland - the home of Itv's 'Heartbeat'! Staithes (lovely old fishing harbour) was very interesting - our dog Ben spent hours running and swimming in the sea there! We really loved exploring the old Whitby town and hiking up all the steps to the abbey - the views made the effort worthwhile! Our stay at the Goatshed was excellent-we could not have wished for anything better.I would certainly recommend it and will be looking to go again next year!
The Goat Shed was the perfect place to spend our 10 year wedding anniversary. Lovely walks close by and friendly pubs (which welcomed our dog Busta!)...all in all a perfect place to spend a week relaxing. Highly recommend the Goat Shed for couples wanting to get away from it all.
really nice spot to stay in quiet area very nice close to many places which are worth visiting like whitby, pickering, robin hoods bay and the north yorkshire moors
We had a wonderful stay at the Goat Shed. We found it warm, snug and it had everything for a Romantic week away from the normal hussle and bussle of life. We enjoyed walks out around the area, Fishing in Whitby and Robin Hood Bay and plenty of drinks and meals at the inviting Flyindales Inn in Robin Hood Bay. It's a place that we'll return to for sure.
It's right what people say once you've been to the Yorkshire coast you'll want to go back. The Goat Shed is perfectly placed for exploring the surrounding areas. It is set in the beautiful hills with views of the coast. The accomadation was excellent, comfy and clean. The owners were friendly and helpful which always makes your stay even better. We will be going again and recommending it to our friends and family.
