  • "A gorgeous cottage, brilliantly situated on the old railway track, perfect for walks from your doorstep."

    Beautiful cottage with everything you could wish for. Very cosy & perfect for your dog too - lots of doggy extras for your 4-legged friend. Brilliant for walks to Ravenscar, Robin Hood Bay and further afield to Whitby. Plenty of pubs to choose from locally or the kitchen has everything you need if you’re staying in. We would definitely return & have already recommended the cottage to friends & family.

  • "Had an absolutely fabulous 2 week break at the beautiful Cottage Anton."

    Stunning location surrounded with beautiful views/walks. The Cottage is tastefully decorated, spacious, well equipped and very cosy - especially with the log burner on! The road leading to it, is narrow/steep and not for the faint hearted, however, the directions are very accurate and well worth the steady drive down to find this hidden gem! Just perfect for us and our little dog (who settled very well) we had a lovely relaxing break (just what we needed to start the new year) and would definitely highly recommend. 5* Owners/Housekeeper very nice & accommodating!

    It had everything we needed for a great holiday. It was quiet and peaceful. Really good to be able to walk straight from the door on some great walks.

  • "The cottage provides easy access to great walking."

    It is beautifully situated although driving along the narrow track leading to it is not for the faint hearted. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped, although the leaking shower screen was in need of attention. The owners are welcoming and it can be recommended.

  • "The bed was a little hard."

    Not the most comfortable bed we've slept in if we are brutally honest, but we still loved it and would definitely return

  • "Owners most welcoming and informative."

    Stunning location, rural and peaceful. Great for walking and cycling. At peace with the world. Storage for bicycles and plenty of space around the cottage. Cottage was well equipped and a high standard. Perhaps starting to age with little things like the shower door leaking. Highly recommend Ravenscar tea rooms, short drive or 2 mile walk away. Considering in all the literature mentions COVID deep cleaning, the cottage didn’t feel or visibly see the benefits of a deep clean. Rugs were grumpy and sofa was in need of a clean. Noting early departure of 9 am and removing bed linen and towels all before 9 am wasn’t relaxing.

    The location is excellent - we hardly used the car, just did lots of long and short walks straight from the door. The accommodation was comfortable and unfussy, in a good way, and had everything we needed. We would love to come again - to the same place.

  • "Absolutely amazing cottage, all prepared."

    Instructions to get there were clear, but it really is very out of the way. This suited us but it is nowhere near a shop or a pub. If you book this place ensure you are prepared to drive. The walks from here are superb and there are lots of them. The views are incredible.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage."

    Excellent access to walks which meant we were there for four nights and didn't need to move the car. If you like a good stretch there are several good pubs you can walk to for food. Best take anything you need with you though as there are no shops nearby!

  • "Lovely quiet bolthole of a cottage with excellent walks from the doorstep."

    Owners extremely helpful and informative. Yes it is down a lengthy little lane, but well worth it when you get there. Take everything that you are likely to need as 'popping out for some milk' is not a simple task. If you want a quiet few days getaway from it all break, The Anton Cottage is perfect.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Anton Cottage where so much thought has been put into creating a perfect holiday retreat."

    It was particularly cold on our arrival, so being met with wonderfully warm underfloor heating throughout the ground floor was a bonus for sure, as well as the beautiful red roses in the kitchen! We enjoyed the quiet location which was ideal for us and our collie dog. Walks from the door along the cinder track or along the lane leading upwards onto the moor. Stunning views all around. With plenty to do and see locally, as well as many good food pubs just a few minutes drive away, we will be returning soon!

  • "Cottage Anton was perfect."

    A truly beautiful cottage in a wonderful location. We would highly recommend Cottage Anton for anyone looking for a romantic break away. The only thing we would mention is that we quickly ran out of logs for the log burner so would advise others to purchase some on route to the cottage. We would definitely book Cottage Anton again.

  • "We enjoyed the beautiful cottage Anton and would highly recommend it for anyone that wants a peaceful break with lots of local walks and the highlight of seeing seals in their natural environment only a walk away."

    The cottage is wonderfully decorated and has everything you could possibly want. The owners were friendly but allowed us to just do our thing and I really did not want to go home at the end of the five nights. What a way to see 2020 in, would definitely return.

  • "A very comfatable and pleasant cottage."

    Set in a very scenic setting ideal for walkers. The road down to the cottage is quite narrow and I think this needs pointing out in the brochure as inexperienced drivers may find this a little scarey.

  • "The cottage is set in a beautiful location with so many walks straight from your front door."

    The owners very helpfully had left a few laminated walks to start you off exploring from day one. Whitby and Scarborough are both worth a visit. I fully recommend this cottage.

  • "We had no idea what to expect as we had never booked a cottage before."

    When we arrived we were overwhelmed with the cottage. The location was stunning. The cottage itself was immaculate and had everything in it that you could possibly need plus more. The set up of the cottage is lovely and very relaxing and everything was pure quality. The location was great, just on the Cinder Track so we could walk for miles with the dog, which we did (a big first for me). I cannot recommend this cottage enough and we will definitely be going back as soon as we can.

  • "Fantastic Easter long weekend here, when the weather was very good."

    The location was perfect for us, with walks from the door (15 mins to the beach and lots of cifftop options too) meaning that we really didn’t need our car once we’d arrived. It’s remoteness means that you do have to be organised with provisions (or have a bit of a drive), but the peaceful environment made that very worthwhile. Friendly owners were on hand as required and provided useful tips on walks etc. Very successful conversion - perfect for two plus our dog, but surprisingly spacious with a very sunny garden. Highly recommended.

    The cottage is really warm with log burning stove and underfloor heating. All the facilities you could want including fast internet and smart TV (for those rainy days). So many walks directly from the cottage that we only drove out twice in the week we were there. I would suggest anyone coming to bring some groceries as getting to the nearest supermarket takes some time. Perfect place to disconnect, I would recommend and hope to go back sometime soon.

  • "This cottage was brilliant."

    My wife and I stayed here over Christmas 2018 and we were delighted with the accommodation. Set in idyllic surroundings and with magnificent views over Robin Hoods Bay. A comfortable bed, good kitchen facilitates and a blazing log fire in the lounge made our holiday a memorable one. Top marks to the owners who came out promptly and sorted the underfloor heating in the bathroom. If you have a dog this place is doggy heaven with walks galore and the old Whitby-Scarborough Rail track just out side the garden gate. We will definitely rent this cottage again.

    The cottage it’s self is lovely but because it’s so far down a steep hill trying to get communication from the owner is shocking, one txt received from her asking if my email was right she said she would phone - no calls or emails from her I tried calling her but straight to messenger! I stayed less than an hour!!! Wasted my money on this place!!! We had to try and get up and out of that narrow, steep road that’s 2.5 miles away from a normal road to drive on before it turn dark!

    A lovely spot so much better than description and photos didn’t do it justice. Loved our time at Cottage Anton, a massive thank you to all! (My only suggestion would be to be prepared in the winter months have a shovel in the boot of car for gritting the road! As we are from Dorset our winter months are very different!) But that was not within the control of owners or Sykes and it was nothing compared to the lovely setting and care and attention to detail within the cottage. Once again thank you!
