  • "Location is stunning."

    We did the coastal walk to Whitby which itself is lovely. Had a great time and will definitely go back.

    The owners have put in place many lovely extras which make for a truly enjoyable stay. Robin Hood Bay is charming.

  • "This is a beautiful, charming, tiny cottage in fabulous surroundings."

    The owner was extremely helpful and the cottage was extremely well equipped. Anyone with physical limitations needs to be made clearly aware of the challenges of access in Robin Hood's Bay, but for us it was just perfect.

  • "Roseberry Cottage really is lovely."

    The balcony is such a wonderful place to sit and relax watching the world go by. The position of the cottage is excellent. Right in the middle of the village but still lovely and quiet. Slept like a log all week. The only thing missing is a washing machine which I think would be better than a dish washer but that’s just personal preference. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Roseberry cottage is traditional, quirky, comfortable and bijou.

  • "What a great find Roseberry cottage is, it's a period cottage which means low ceilings and steep stairs."

    The cottage is beautifully presented and is a credit to the owner; it's situated 3/4 of the way down a very steep hill which means you have to be reasonably fit to stay here. It is well equipped and provisions (tea bags, bread etc) have been left for you, most welcome after a long journey. Parking is sometimes an issue, as the car park at the top of the hill is extremely busy, so even with a parking permit you are not guaranteed a parking space. All in all a great place to stay.

    Ideal location to enjoy Robin Hoods Bay and surrounding area. Love the outside balcony, great to sit out for breakfast watching the village come to life. This was, our second visit to Roseberry Cottage and we look forward to visiting again.

  • "Cosy, quirky cottage in a perfect place for exploring Robin Hoods Bay."

    It was ideal for the two of us. The town itself was very busy, more than usual according to shop owners, and there was not a lot of social distancing going on. Because of this, and a local Covid outbreak, we didn't venture to Whitby or Scarborough.

  • "A lovely small cottage set near the bottom of the village."

    If you are after a great setting in the bay this is for you. However, if you area light sleeper then the seagulls, pigeons and dustbin men will wake you up very early. The facilities and kitchen equipment were fantastic but small (fridge very small), we brought extra equipment as usually they aren’t always this good- even sharp knifes. There is also a dishwasher which wasn’t advertised, bonus! Lots of soap and the cottage was very clean. We would have liked more information on parking before we arrived as we were unaware how inaccessible the cottage was from the car. It’s a good 15-20 minute walk down a very steep hill. We are young but if you like to have your car near by you haven’t got a chance. We had never been to the bay before and would have probably booked something else due to this. It also meant my parents had to cancel their visit to the bay as one of them uses a powered scooter and it would have never got down to the bay/cottage. The area is great for running and walking and kids love the beach

    Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. As the property is located at a fabulous seaside location, there will be assosciated noise from seagulls. The bin men come once a week to remove the rubbish. Property Owner

  • "We had a problem with parking and ended up with a parking ticket because we parked on the wrong car park."

    (The owners generously shared the cost of this with us.) This was partly our fault for not reading the owners' info thoroughly enough, but this was because we thought we had sorted out the correct car park before we read it. It needs to be emphasised before clients depart for their holiday which two car parks can be used and their locations and which one can't be used. Unfortunately the one that can't be used is nearest to the property. Apart from this, we enjoyed staying in the property and the village and the surrounding area.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your week. The parking information is listed in the property notifying guests where they can park. We provide a parking pass for guests at a cost to ourselves to try and assist all our guests and make their stay as easy as possible. We are happy to say we have never had an issue before with guests misunderstanding the parking arrangements, as a gesture we offered to share the cost with you as we want all our guests to have the best experience whilst staying at our properties. Thanks once again for letting us know your thoughts. Property Owner

  • "Really enjoyed our stay."

    Very surprised to walk in and find a welcome pack (prosecco, chocs, fruit, bread, milk), it was a lovely touch. The cottage had everything we could possibly need. Very impressed that it had a smart tv as it gave us connectivity to netflix etc which if the weather isnt great outside means there is entertainment for all the family. Great location to beach, shops, pubs, chippy, & great chilling on the balcony watching the world go past.

  • "Beautiful historic cottage in a perfect location for wandering through the winding streets or taking a stroll on the beach."

    The owners were very helpful and left amazing welcoming gifts which went down a treat with everyone. We travelled as a party of four, 2xadults and 2xchildrens (aged 4 & 8) and we had just enough room to be comfortable. The bedrooms were perfectly sized and well appointed, just a little bit of a squeeze in the living room when we wanted to sit together. The kitchen had everything we needed and each bedroom had a hairdryer. Overall could not fault this property, loved the quirky nature of the building and the location couldn't be better!

  • "The cottage was in a great location, right in the centre of the village - 2 min from the beach, the pub and several sweet shops, to the delight of our children!"

    We felt like being part of the village for a week, which was great. The cottage was very comfortable and warm. We would have preferred a washing machine to a dishwasher because of the awkward place it was in and we would have liked a few more cutlery items and plates. Apart from that, it was great and Glenys was very helpful. There are several possible walks from the cottage (following Cleveland Way) and the views are stunning. We came across a colony of seals just below Raven Hall - it was just magical. We hope to come back again.

    Small but perfect. It had everything we needed for a wonderful weekend, including a bottle of prosecco! It was beautifully and tastefully decorated, with lovely seaside touches and very, very clean. It's location was great, just close enough to a drop off point to be able to walk our luggage to the cottage and close to pubs, a shop and the beach. The owners were also extremely helpful with any queries we had. We even had a little balcony to enjoy the spring sunshine. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
