Breaday Gill is a sympathetic conversion of an 18 century stone farm building using traditional lime mortar and sheep's wool insulation.  Underfloor heating throughout is fuelled by a biomass log boiler and brings the barn right up to date for comfortable, modern living. 

Breaday Gill, like Folly Gill, is situated in the hamlet of Silpho, which is remarkable for its enormous sky and stunning panoramic views across the North York Moors. Yorkshire's Heritage Coast is just a stones throw away (10 minutes by car to Scarborough) and walkers have direct access to some of the most spectacular walking country that Britain has to offer, right from the cottage door.  Carefully selected antique and mid-century furniture sit happily with the more contemporary design  elements.  Works from talented local artists will whet your appetite for the stunning landscapes of the North York Moors.

Open plan living with exposed timbers and original A frame beams provides a light and airy space for relaxing in truly stylish interiors.  French doors open from the living area into Breaday Gill's enclosed south facing garden which provides an extension of the living space.  A log burning stove is the focal point in the delightfully furnished living area.

As with all Stylish Stays cottages a complimentary welcome hamper awaits your arrival and means you can start to relax the moment you arrive.  Locally sourced produce is available to pre-order including Yorkshire deli boards and a selection of artisan baked goodies.

Take full advantage of the well appointed bespoke oak kitchen and release the domestic goddess (or god) within!  With the open plan kitchen/living area, cooking can be enjoyed without missing out on the fun of being with friends and family. 

Bedrooms and Bathrooms
The two spacious bedrooms have their own en-suite bathroom, with large bath and shower in each.  Luxury, locally sourced natural bath and skincare products await you and it goes without saying that huge fluffy towels come as standard. 

A good night's sleep is of huge importance and we have gone to great lengths to ensure the beds at Breaday Gill offer all the key ingredients.  Both bedrooms offer super-king beds, one of which can be made up as generous twin beds should you require.  Crisp, white Egyptian cotton bed linen will help to ensure the perfect night's sleep.  Zzz Zzz.

The garden and beyond
Breaday Gill enjoys a south facing aspect and garden within a landscaped courtyard setting.  Beech hedges enclose the outdoor living space which combines traditional stone setts and a lawn.  A patio area allows for outdoor dining.

Ample private parking is available within the courtyard.

Breaday Gill and Folly Gill can be booked together for larger groups.

Guest Comments

July 2014 - The Atkinsons, Durham

On a walk through Silpho we were blown away by the barn conversion on the edge of the moors.  Thrilled to learn the owners are adding their interior flair, design skills and attention to detail to the nearby farm cottages of Breaday Gill and Folly Gill. We want to be the first to book!  Perfect for walkers such as ourselves - you walk onto the North York Moors from the front door and the views from Silpho are stunning. 


August 2014 - Adam & family, West Midlands

Wow, had a fantastic time in a fab place!  Really a luxury experience, lots & lots of small details in the cottage which we really appreciated.  A lot of thought and effort has gone into the design & decor and it really shows.  Lorna & Chris were great hosts, always on hand if needed, but not encroaching - lovely, genuine, passionate people and happy to share their local knowledge on things to see and do.  Absolutely loved it!!!!
