The Owl House
The Owl House, High Barn
The Owl House was the section of the building used as a workman’s cottage until the mid 20th century. The layout of this Yorkshire self-catering holiday cottage is traditional, with the living accommodation on the ground floor and the bedrooms on the floor above. Near Bridlington and Flamborough Head on the East Yorkshire coast, and within easy reach of Beverley, Filey, Pickering, Scarborough, Whitby and York for day trips, The Owl House makes a great base for a family of four or two couples seeking a self-catering cottage holiday in Yorkshire.
The Owl House is a beautifully finished two-storey holiday cottage painstakingly created to offer luxury self-catering holidays in East Yorkshire.
This holiday cottage is really special and absolutely unique. Before the renovations started, we had a resident pair of breeding barn owls at High Barn. Within the roof space of this cottage, on the outside east-facing wall, we have constructed a totally self-contained five-star owl house, complete with CCTV, so that our owls can return to their favoured nesting place and our visitors can watch activity within their home. The barn owls raised one clutch of three chicks in 2012 and mated again in 2013, but produced no chicks because of a long, wet spring. Four chicks fledged in 2014 and gave great pleasure to all who viewed them on the web-cam. Since then, chicks have been produced each year except one.
