We offer excellent bed and breakfast at historic Skerry Hall Farm - just see our Tripadvisor reviews! Set in a quiet, secluded position, nestling into the hillside below heather-clad moorland, with panoramic views over Robin Hood’s Bay, Skerry Hall offers the perfect bolt hole for those seeking first class accommodation in a house full of character. You will enjoy every moment from the time you arrive - with tea and cake served in the garden which has one of the most spectacular views on the East coast - until you bid us a reluctant farewell.
You can choose one of three beautiful rooms, each with an en-suite shower room. Room 3 has magnificent views and spacious accommodation but all three rooms have their own character and features to enjoy. Our highly rated breakfasts are served in our breakfast/sitting room, with its stone flagged floor and underfloor heating, which has a commanding view over the Bay.
We can supply gift vouchers for any amount to pay for, or towards the cost of, a stay at Skerry Hall Farm. Just phone or email for details - a perfect gift for birthdays or anniversaries, to say 'thank you' or 'I love you'!
Please note however that all bookings are for a minimum of two nights and we are unable to accommodate pets or children under 12 years.
As lovers of good food we ensure that our breakfasts feature the best of locally sourced and seasonal produce – including eggs from our own hens, sausages and dry-cured bacon from a local master butcher and homemade preserves. You can enjoy a full English breakfast, or one of the alternatives of your choice, including continental and vegetarian options.
Skerry Hall Farm is well located on the footpath and bridleway network, open moorland designated as "access land", and close to the Cleveland Way National Trail. It enjoys ready access to good cycle routes, including the Cinder Track - the former Whitby - Scarborough railway. We have secure cycle storage for our guests.
Skerry Hall Farm is a traditional bed and breakfast in a private residential property and we are doing everything possible to keep guests and ourselves safe from Covid 19. Amongst other measures, towards this end we will not accept bookings for any guest who has not been fully vaccinated. See our Covid 19 statement and booking conditions for full information on this and all the measures we have in place.
Enjoy tea and homemade cake on your arrival in our beautiful garden (weather permitting) with spectacular views across Robin Hood's Bay. Keep an eye open for the deer, which pass regularly through our woodland alongside the garden, or the hawks which hunt over our fields - encouraged by the management of the adjoining moorland by the Court Leet/Strickland Estate in conjunction with Natural England. Hear the call of the owls as night falls .... and, of course, meet our friendly Dexter cattle.
The breakfast/sitting room, available at all times to our guests, offers a quiet and comfortable place where you can plan your next day's activities, sit and browse through our selection of books and maps of local interest, or just enjoy the marvellous view.
If you need to access the internet take advantage of our free wi-fi connection.
Beyond our farm, explore the public footpaths - one of which passes through our fields - that take you through some of the most beautiful countryside in England, to dramatic cliff tops or down to the sea at Robin Hood's Bay. Explore the open moorland, rich in Bronze Age archaeology with numerous tumuli, linear earthworks and even a stone circle. Hear the curlew and the grouse.
You can visit Robin Hood's Bay with its diverse local shops, restaurants and pubs, go to the local museum, enjoy a ghost walk ...and more. All that without even venturing to Whitby a mere five miles away.
