“Location good but feeling tired and neglected”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

Location of this cottage is great and bedrooms and bathroom are fine. However the lounge / kitchen areas are in need of a deep clean and some tlc as they are in showing lots of signs of wear and age. Unable to use the patio due to over flowing bins and bramble bushes in need of chopping back. It's a shame as with a bit more effort this place would be lovely but currently it does feel neglected and in need of a refresh and given this I wouldn't stay here again or recommend it until this is done.

This cottage is very well equipped and a wee bit quirky given the Kitchen is in a separate out building, but that just added to its character. The beds and seating were quite comfy, however the cottage itself needs a bit of tender loving care as in a lick of paint, and maybe a stair gate on top floor as kids would probably use the bunk beds. We had to buy 3 mugs as some of the mugs and dishes were cracked or chipped. There was chair pads and a door mat in the kitchen and these could definitely do with a good wash or replacing as they are badly stained and dirty. These small issues could be easily addressed as it really is a fab location and a really nice cottage.We had a really nice time there and Robin Hoods Bay is just lovely. The beach is about 5min walk down hill, and there are many other interesting walks. There is a few nice shops and a few hotels which are very traditional. The locals are very friendly and proud of their bay and its history. I would have no hesitation recommending this cottage if issues mentioned are addressed.

“Lovely cottage in great location”

Just had a fantastic stay here - 3 adults plus dog. The cottage is very cute & ticks all of the boxes in terms of setting, amenities & value. Lovely wood burning fire in the lounge for when it gets a bit nippy in the evenings. Little terrace for breakfast/sundowners. Lounge/dining space might be a bit tight if there were 6 adults but perfect for half-capacity or adults with children. Would highly recommend & Julian the owner is super-friendly & helpful.

“Lovely quaint and cosy cottage very very close to all you could need.”
Reviewed 27 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Had a lovely time in this cottage, was a little disappointed at first with the amenities till we realised the kitchen was in a separate building! However this did not cause a problem at all once we found it. The facilities were excellent and we were very warm and cosy. It could not be much nearer to the shop so that was very convenient and the shop is actually not bad value at all. Would definitely recommend and will revisit if we can.

“Home from Home in Robin Hoods Bay”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

people found this review helpful

Stayed with partner for an Anniversary weekend and had in-laws join us for a fantastic break (good weather helped).
Property very well organised, booking and arrangements went smoothly and after three days forgot what our home looked like. Got used to the kitchen annex and enjoyed sitting in the little table next to the beck in the sunshine.
Really felt like you were living in Robin Hoods Bay rather than visiting and went walking in the Bay and Whitby (obligatory visit to the Magpie Café - its the law).
