The property is part of a sympathetic conversion of a 200 year old barn, retaining many features of the original buildings whilst meeting modern standards of comfort and sustainability.

The whole property benefits from efficient and comfortable underfloor heating with individual thermostats for each room, and the central heating system provides unlimited instant hot water. The whole heating system is powered by our CO2 neutral Biomass boiler. At the heart of the accommodation is the large open plan living space with 2 comfortable settees and large screen TV, with generous sitting area, dining area and luxury fitted kitchen, with every mod con, including built in dishwasher. The smart TV is connected to Freesat and also allows you to access your own account for online video streaming.

A wood burning stove, with free supplies of fuel provides a cozy backdrop for your evenings in, either eating at the stunning. wooden dining table, or in the sitting room watching TV or DVDs from our collection, or playing the selection of traditional board games.

Postgate Barn is a development of a 200 year old former agricultural barn at Postgate Farm, set in a beautiful, peaceful location in Glaisdale Dale, within the fabulous North York Moors National Park, yet less than half an hour from Whitby and the beautiful Cleveland coastline. The cottage has stunning views to the South over the Dale to the forests and moorlands beyond. The Dale itself is served by just one road which means very little traffic, yet is only a mile from the thriving village community of Glaisdale and all its amenities including the village pub, award winning butchers, post office and general store, tennis court, cricket ground and the Robinson Institute, home of the renowned Esk Valley Theatre Company. The village has a railway station and is served by local bus routes. Glaisdale is an ideal holiday location, with stunning walks and cycling available without even getting in your car. A little further afield are other parts of the North York Moors, with pretty villages such as Goathland, Grosmont, Egton, Lealholm, Rosedale Abbey and Egton Bridge just a few minutes drive or a healthy hike away, or by using the picturesque Esk Valley Railway, which runs from Whitby to Middlesborough, and also connects to the famous North York Moors Railway, complete with steam trains, connecting to Pickering. The local bus service connects to Whitby, and the other villages of the North York Moors. The towns of Pickering in the heart of the North York Moors, and Whitby on the coast are less than half an hours drive away and can also be accessed by rail as mentioned above. York and Scarborough lie approximately 50 /60 minutes drive from Glaisdale. Whether you want to see the beauty of the North York Moors with its expansive moorlands and hidden valleys or the stunning Cleveland coastline, Glaisdale is an ideal base for your stay.

For food and drink lovers we are surrounded by great pubs and restaurants, and for those wanting to cook for themselves, great suppliers such as award winning butchers, fishmongers and smokehouses.


The property is a conversion of traditional farm buildings. As such, there may be some compromises to accessibility. Car parking is approximately 60m from the entrance door and access to the property is along a path which includes steps. There is one bedroom, with en-suite bathroom and toilet, on the ground floor, accessed by just one small internal step. A second ensuite bedroom is on the first floor accessed by stairs.

As we are a working farm, unfortunately we do not accept pets.

first guests to stay in Postgate Barn

By John Fuller on 30-Dec-2020

Amazing place to stay. It's nice to be the first guests to visit The Barn since its conversion and place a review on the site. We visited the Barn over the Christmas period and had a wonderful time. Mark and Moya were excellent hosts and even festively decorated the barn for our visit. We had excellent communication with Mark and Moya before hand and they responded quickly when we had queries regarding internet codes upon arrival. The place was spotless, warm and welcoming. It had everything we needed and more. We couldn't fault it at all and cannot wait to return in the summer. It is obvious a lot of effort has been put into the conversion and the specification of everything is high end. It has also been tastefully furnished. We felt so at ease from the minute we walked in. All I want to finish off with is by saying well done Mark and Moya. You have got this spot on. It caters for all and all occasions. If you don't visit you are missing out.... 12/30/2020 at 12:14 PM You responded on 12/30/2020 at 12:57 PM thanks you so much for the lovely review, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay with us here at Postgate Farm! we hoped we'd got everything right for a perfect stay but thank you for being our first guests and testing everything out for us, it's always nice when the guests enjoy their stay!
