SEATON HALL, NORTH YORKSHIRE

An ancient manor house, tucked away in private gardens and grounds, promises groups a grand spring break...

Perched right on the edge of the village of Staithes – one of the Yorkshire Heritage Coast’s gems – and heather-clad North Yorkshire Moors lies Seaton Hall – an impressive pad, built for groups of family and chums (up to 32 guests over all), offering relaxing and affordable self-catering accommodation options with acres of private grounds, woodlands and gardens to explore. A walkers’ paradise, the highest cliffs in England, along with a pretty harbour and beautiful bays and beaches, are all a short mile away.

Accommodation-wise, you’re spoilt for choice. You’ll find Seaton Court and Seaton Cottage are renovated spacious, former barn and servants quarters, sleeping 4-11 people. The cottages are set around a courtyard and are part of Seaton Hall’s Pendulum Garden.

Seaton Cottage sleeps four; it has a double bedroom upstairs, with its own bathroom across the landing with a slipper bath to enjoy. The twin room, on the ground floor, has an en-suite with shower over. There’s also a handmade fitted kitchen with a large adjoining dining/sitting room, a mixture of antique furniture and modern sprung sofa and armchairs with dining table and chairs. Original artwork hang on the walls and French doors lead out to a terrace.

Seaton Court is a bespoke conversion that sleeps 11 people, with three double bedrooms, a twin and a triple room on offer. Three of the bedrooms are en-suite – two have showers over. A separate staircase to one of the doubles and the triple room has a spacious bathroom with a roll top bath. One of the double bedroom suites is at ground level.

The main hall, meanwhile, can sleep up to seven people. It has three double bedrooms and one single, with two traditional bathrooms. The Hall is a carefully renovated rambling farmhouse, meaning no fitted carpets – instead, gorgeous antique tribal rugs and furniture with original paintings. It’s worth noting that this property is not self-catering, as it functions as an overflow for Seaton Court, which has plenty of space for up to 25, give or take, and a large farmhouse style kitchen.

Nearby attractions include Whitby, Saltburn, Sandsend and Runswick Bay. It’s also the perfect base to visit attractions such as Scampston Walled Gardens, Castle Howard and Duncome Park.

Owner, William Kidd, has also recently launched the next stage of the property’s development, which has had millions of pounds invested over an eight-year period, with the creation of an antiques shop and a restaurant. The Barn Owl Bistro and Restaurant is now open from breakfast through to dinner for visitors and offers a range of private dining options for guests who are staying at the hall. The small antiques area accessed through the bistro has been opened ahead of the next planned stage of the development, which is the conversion of a barn into an antiques mall with a second café.
