  • "CottageVal is a beautiful property in a stunning location."

    Perfect for dog walking along the cinder path and down to the beaches. Linda and Tom are brilliant hosts and really make you feel welcome. It’s nice to be able to go on holiday with your dog to such a well appointed cottage, it’s even better in the flesh than on the photos. We have stayed twice now at cottageVal and would love to stay again, we couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

  • "This was our second visit and it will not be our last!"

    Everything about this cottage is perfect from the comfort, facilities and cleanliness to the absolutely stunning location. We have yet to make the drive back to the cottage without exclaiming at the breathtaking views. And as for the wildlife you can see on those drives, especially at dusk, we were just thrilled! Thank you for another wonderful holiday and we look forward to being back in beautiful CottageVal again next year.

    Peaceful with a sea view. Absolutely stunning. Lovely to meet Linda and Tom during our stay. Lively people and very approachable. Already looking to rebook for next year.

  • "Linda and Tom were so welcoming and helpful."

    This was a much needed break - beautiful view of the sea and Robin Hood's Bay and the moors. Much wildlife to enjoy. The Cinder Track runs right by the Cottage and a great starting point for walking. The night skies superb and some great sunsets. Went down to the beach most days and the Boggle Hole YHA well worth a visit for coffee/tea, cakes and on certain days light meals. Visited Whitby, Sandsend, Ravenscar and Scarborough - but so many other places to see that we did not make - so will have to return at some point. Could easily have stayed for 2 weeks.

    Fantastic views, even if the location is a little remote, making visiting the pub or restaurant more difficult! The owners were friendly and welcoming. Ideal for a walking holiday with our dog.

  • "The property was of an outstanding quality."

    Everything was perfect. A superbly renovated, warm, comfortable barn with everything we could possibly need for cooking etc. Lots of firewood was just one of the generous touches. Comfortable beds, lovely shower and bathrooms. Spectacular views with easy access to the cinder track to take walks, runs or bike rides. A huge bonus with a dog was all the outside space if you have a well behaved dog who won’t run off. The owners live close by and were so friendly and lovely. Dog blankets and bowl provided. Great outdoor patio with bbq. We had an absolutely wonderful stay. The peace and quiet of the location and the high quality of the barn were an absolute delight.

  • "Fantastic cottage."

    facilities are all that you need, and more. strange water system, must be a pumped system, as when you turn on the tap or shower some times there was a considerable delay then a full spurt to send water every were. Very cosy for an evening by the wood burner. Cob webs could do with clearing but over all clean.

  • "CottageVal was everything we'd hoped for and more."

    Incredibly warm and cosy with great facilities and amazing views. We were there during the February storms which was rather exciting! The beds are extremely comfortable,water pressure is great and the WiFi good. The walks from the cottage are amazing.We walked to Boggle Hole along the Cinder Track and then on to Robin Hood's Bay along the Cleveland Way. Walking the opposite way along the Cinder Track we visited Ravenscar. A long,quite steep walk downhill takes you to the seal colony.We felt incredibly privileged to see so many of these amazing creatures in their natural habitat. Many thanks to Linda and Tom.We would love to return!

    What an excellent little find this was. The views from the back door of Robin Hoods Bay are just spectacular. It has everything you need to have a very relaxing, comfortable stay. There are walks from your doorstep to Robin Hood Bay & Ravenscar. The dog loved it as did we !!! It’s quite remote which we loved & being able to hear the sea from the cottage was simply fantastic. We loved the wood burner also after a long walk with a glass of wine, as to say we didn’t want to leave. Anyone looking for a cottage with peace & quiet for either dog walking or biking this Is the cottage for you. It’s fabulous get booking …

    Beautifully converted and decorated with good quality furniture, and facilities. Pleasure to stay here. Would like more wood supplies as for us it's a novelty having a wood burner. Only slight issue was a fall on the moss on the outside patio. Think it probably needs cleaning off. No broken bones or split heads so all ok. Will definately recommend and visit again. Lovely - thank you.

    Not sure this is made clear in the description. Says there is a pub 2.5 miles from the cottage, think it must have closed or moved. There is no mobile reception but very good Wi-fi, also the TV signal is intermittent. If you want to park up your car and walk then this is the place to be. If you want to tour in the area or get out for meals etc then it’s probably not.
