    The gifts that were left on arrival were a nice welcome and added a personal touch. The cottage is well-placed for getting out and about in Robin Hoods Bay, and beyond. Close to the village shop that sells almost everything we needed. Would highly recommend and we will return. Everything was managed well.

    We honestly couldn’t have asked for more to be honest. The owner was amazing with our stairgate request for our 2 year old, we had wifi so Netflix was a god send with a 2 year old for the odd bit of relaxing time getting her chilled out for bedtime and obviously Christmas films. It’s in an ideal location and the balcony was really nice for some wine and cheese/crackers.

    The description made it very clear that the property was old and with steep stairs. Loved the balcony it was warm and sheltered. Just one suggestion it would be useful if the Belfast sink in the kitchen could have a plastic bowl. As there were only the two of us and we ate out quite alot we didn't use the dishwasher. A really enjoyable holiday thank you.

  • "Absolutely fantastic experience."

    The cottage was immaculate, well presented and thoroughly equipped (the best I've seen so far). The owner was very easy to contact and a pleasure to communicate with. On the day we were due to depart back home, a lorry had broken down on the main narrow road into the bay for the whole day, meaning we were unable to drive home out of the Bay from where we had parked the car. The owner of the cottage went above and beyond, being so generous to let us to stay an extra evening at only the cost price of cleaning (very fair). This was taken care of very quickly and was a huge relief that we had a place to stay the night, especially one as nice as Roseberry Cottage. I absolutely recommend this cottage.

    Location perfect, cottage had everything we needed, and was perfect for our short break for 3 adults. The owners thoughtful welcome pack, including wine was a lovely touch.

    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.

  • "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.

    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

    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!

    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.

About the location


Whitby 6 miles; Scarborough 17 miles.

Robin Hood's Bay, with its narrow cobbled streets and quaint cottages, is one of the most picturesque villages on the English coastline. Situated between Scarborough and Whitby, this charming old fishing village is to be found nestling at the edge of a wide sweeping bay backed by spectacular cliffs and dramatic moorland scenery, and was once home to author Leo Walmsley. All holidaymakers will love the beach and its cliff-top walks, whilst more serious walkers will enjoy the many long distance trails that pass through the Cleveland Way, the Lyke Wake Walk and the Coast to Coast walks which all take in Robin Hood’s Bay. The village amenities are superb, with charming alleyways to explore and plenty of places to rest, relax and take refreshment. A perfect base for enjoying the Yorkshire Coast.
