Details

This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

The Old Coastguard Station stands right by the sea, at the bottom of this picturesque seventeenth-century fishing village. The Trust bought the building in 1998 and converted it for holidays in 2000, but prior to that it served as a marine life study centre. The ground and first floors house Trust interpretative displays and education rooms. The holiday home is completely separate on the second floor with stunning sea views.

Yorkshire and the North East

From the wild natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales in the west, to the purple heather moorlands of the Yorkshire Moors in the east, a stay in one of our cottages will give you the chance to explore the rugged landscape and green hills of Yorkshire and the North East. As if that wasn’t enough, there are also historic towns and cities, a spectacular coastline, (much of which we look after) and stories after stories in the historic houses we care for.

The North York Moors National Park is famous for its vast areas of heather moorland, interspersed by hidden valleys and bounded to the east by stunning coastline. The main activity in the area is traditional hill farming. Although tourism is increasingly important, taking advantage of magnificent countryside, heritage coastline, busy market towns, attractive villages and historic churches, abbeys and castles.

    Wonderful location

    The location is absolutely wonderful. Living in London, we appreciated that the only sound was the sea!
