Cliff House Country Cottages


We are a small family run business offering five self-catering holiday rental cottages complete with indoor heated swimming pool in the pretty village of Ebberston in the Vale of Pickering in North Yorkshire. Nestled between the North York Moors and the rolling Yorkshire Wolds, we are near the coastal towns of Whitby and Scarborough, as well as the market towns of Pickering and Malton. This allows us to offer the best that the county of Yorkshire has to offer.

We provide comfortable and welcoming self-catering accommodation for those that want to experience the best of the Yorkshire Coast and Countryside.  Whether that is a day out on the North York Moors Steam Railway, exploring local formal gardens or castles and stately homes.  For the more adventurous there is mountain biking on trails in nearby Great Dalby Forest or surfing off one of the many beautiful beaches that Yorkshire has to offer. We always try and use local produce (when we aren’t making our own), promote local business, attractions and artists and be as environmentally friendly as we can.

For those with dogs, we offer a number of our holiday cottages as dog friendly cottages, so that your canine friend doesn’t get to miss out on your holiday.
