Property Description



Fernleigh was once a Sea Captains’ grand Victorian residence with the upper rooms overlooking the whole of Robin Hoods Bay. Latterly Fernleigh was converted into a vicarage, but more recently a Guest House, with all 4 first floor rooms having their own private bathrooms. The second floor 3 rooms have been used as owners’ accommodation, but could easily be made into en-suite letting rooms, to generate a large income.

On the ground floor, the impressive entrance hall retains it’s original floor tiles, which are in excellent condition. All the pitch pine woodwork on the stairs, skirting, architrave and internal doors are in their original condition, having never been painted. The large reception room and dining room lead from the hall. The sitting room has a modern efficient multifuel stove with original picture rails and the dining room a, rarely found, semi inglenook fireplace with gas fire.

From the far end of the entrance hall leads to a ground floor cloak room and good sized kitchen, containing the gas fired boiler with pantry/utility room off.

The rear garden has a yard and small garden, with useful summer house and electricity supply.

Fernleigh has been run for many years as a successful B&B, traditionally closing in September until April, for the winter period and owners holiday. Coast to Coast walkers are the main clientele, but could easily and like many other guest houses, be expanded to trade throughout the season.

Fernleigh is, of course, eminently suitable as a large family residence or for onversion into 3 magnificent holiday apartments.

Robin Hoods Bay, situated in the heart of the North York Moors National Park, is 16 miles from Scarborough and 6 miles from Whitby. It is one of England’s unique holiday destinations, with narrow cobbled streets and holiday cottages, illuminated by electric reproduction gas lights. The Bay was once home to the UK’s largest smuggling communities, in addition to being a vibrant fishing port. The lower Bay and old village contains a labyrinth of secret tunnels and it used to be said that a bail of silk could pass from the beach to the top of Bay without seeing the light of day, thus avoiding the customs men. Today it is just a truly stunning and relaxing place to live and stay on a holiday vacation.
