  • "We enjoyed the cottage immensely - loads of space and the outside areas were amazing."

    Couple of issues though : For a cottage that caters for up to 10 people we thought the kitchen was a little under equipped, no really big pans, no slotted spoons etc. The ovens were inconsistent to say the least - top right ovens knob wasn’t on properly which made it difficult to control - bottom left oven took nearly 90 minutes to do frozen chips in it! Overall though an excellent cottage

    Beautifully decorated and maintained with everything you could possibly need. Garden and setting was stunning and the tennis court was an added bonus. Sainsbury’s delivery worked brilliantly (thanks for that tip from another reviewer!). Would highly recommend and look forward to returning.

    Lovely walks to RHB & Ravenscar and Boggle hole YHA bar meant we hardly used the car. Our grandchildren loved the rock pools along the beach, fossil hunting and the lovely sandy beach at low tide.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    The house and garden are much nicer than the pictures! We were only 2 but could see that there was ample room for various family combinations. Our only moan inside the house was that the tv in the living room was rather high up the wall… mantlepeice level would be better. Apart from there was everything we needed and everything was comfortable. A big plus were the amazing views from every window! Outside also amazing views and peace and quiet, birdsong, lambs baaing and the occasional tractor noise… Good outside tables and plenty of room for games in the garden plus nice tennis court which did have some racquets and balls in a box court side. It is quite isolated but we had a Sainsbury’s delivery at the beginning of the week which solved that problem. Waking to Boggle Hole and Robin Hoods Bay was easy (if hilly, steep hilly) We are 82 and 75. The local beaches are good for rock pools etc but watch the tides. I was brought up near Sandbanks in Dorset so long sandy beaches totally different from the North Yorkshire ones. There are a few properties on the site but they are so arranged that each have their own privacy. We would thoroughly recommend this property.

    The Farmhouse is a fabulous property set in a beautiful, quiet location with stunning views across the countryside and sea. Warm, inviting with lots of space for the larger family, furnished to a high standard with great attention to detail, everything you need was provided, great garden, plenty of parking. Enjoyed the beach a few minutes walk away and over the cliffs to Robin Hoods Bay then back along the beach at low tide. My small grandchildren loved the rock pools. We had a fantastic week would highly recommend. Thank you.

  • "The Farmhouse is a lovely place to stay."

    It is spacious and we 6 were able to be ourselves and hide away if we wanted to. There was nothing in the way of utensils or other domestic requirements for which the house was wanting. A few things did however take the edge of our unreserved satisfaction: 1) No non slip mats for baths or showers, 2) The small bedroom door (1st floor) would not close properly, 3) The use of modern curtain poles in the bedrooms meant that the super thick curtains did not work against the rising sun which poured in through the large gaps around the curtains - we didn't get as much sleep as we would have liked, 4) A door is required between the master bedroom and the closet which has no curtain - again a problem of light in the morning. Sort these out and we would love to go back even though it is 3 miles to the main road!!

    Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry you had some issues with the house 1. The single room door has been repaired 2. We do not supply non slip mats for the bathroom floors and have never had a problem with this ourselves or a comment from any other visitors. The bathroom in the attic is non slip flooring and the other bathrooms have grouted tiles on the floor and normal bath mats are provided. We will bear in mind your comment and monitor this. 3. A black out blind has already been purchased for the window in the dressing room. A door would be a poor solution as it would get in the way of movement through from the bedroom area. The blind will be fixed directly against the window so will solve the problem. 4. The house is a farmhouse so traditional curtain poles lend themselves to the decor. The bedroom with the fabulous pure silk interlined blackout curtains already has additional blinds at the window and if drawn correctly the sun is not a problem in this room. I am sorry you found this an issue. If total darkness is required at all times to sleep I would suggest an eye mask as a good option. We do hope you appreciated the fantastic views from this bedroom in particular as it is dual aspect. The details stipulate exactly where the house lies; it is on a farm near the sea. The beauty of the area is its relative remoteness from the main roads. Property Owner

  • "The Farmhouse was precisely what was advertised as we had hoped."

    It was clean, spacious, the garden was large, and the views spectacular. The house was full of character, quiet and was well equipped to make our stay comfortable. It was also well sited near to the sandy beach, but with enough rocks for exploring and crabbing, and from where lots of lovely walks/cycling could be undertaken. The lovely seaside town of Robin Hoods Bay was also easily accessible by walking along the beach a short distance (allowing for the tide times). But even then, a nice path was in place across the cliffs overlooking the bay. Suffice to say that my family and I bought back many nice memories of our week there.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are so glad you loved the house and the area as much as we do ! Property Owner

    Lots of beds and bathrooms and the whole place is so comfortable and warm. The table in the kitchen was wonderful and we enjoyed our meals there. The location is perfect. We walked down to the beach every day. Sometimes we walked along to Robin Hoods Bay and once to see seals at Ravenscar- breathtaking. We paddled and rockpooled and played in the sand. The car didn’t get used once in the week. Fossil hunting was also a daily pastime. An amazing house to do all this from.

    The house was very well furnished and extremely comfortable.

We chose to eat in for some of our stay making use of the fully equipped kitchen and the family dining room which seated our party of eleven easily. The whole area is outstandingly beautiful, from the farmhouse you can walk down to the beach at Boggle Hole. Robin Hood Bay is a short car ride away and well worth a visit. We would certainly love to revisit the property in the future with family or with friends as it had everything you could possibly want for a comfortable and relaxing holiday providing a brilliant base for visiting the beautiful surrounding areas.

The property

Robin Hood's Bay 3 miles.

This fabulous and traditional Yorkshire farmhouse is nestled in an idyllic and tranquil location at Boggle Hole, just along the beach from the historic fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay.

Situated on a small complex at South House Farm, the property is set in private, south-facing gardens with panoramic views towards Robin Hood’s Bay and Ravenscar, with just a five minute walk down the hill to the delightful sandy cove of Boggle Hole.

With characterful, spacious rooms, there is a stone-flagged entrance, with a handy boot room, utility and cloakroom leading off.

The well-equipped country kitchen has a large electric traditional style range cooker with induction hob ideal for cooking for large family groups and a central solid beech dining table, where you can sit and chat whilst preparing meals.

There is a large separate hall with solid oak dining table which seats 8 people in high-backed stylish fabric chairs.

The elegant and bright sitting room with its beautiful views leads from the dining hall.

Here the ample comfortable seating surrounds a replica cast-iron real effect electric stove.

A French door leads from the sitting room onto the private terrace and gardens.

On the first floor there are four spacious bedrooms, with a charming super king-size room benefiting from an en-suite shower room and dressing room, while the single room is a child's delight.

The modern family bathroom offers a double basin, shower and a gorgeous free-standing bath.

Most of the bedrooms have superb views over the sea and stretching along the coastline.

The second floor has a beamed open plan area, which is ideal for a family group, with the double bedroom adjoining a twin room, with an en-suite bathroom leading from the double room.

Outside, the beautiful garden provides a peaceful haven, plus wooded valleys and streams lie in the surrounding farmland with an abundance of wildlife to enjoy, including roe deer and nesting birds.

The beach at Boggle Hole is renowned for fossil hunting and rock pooling and historically this cove was where smugglers landed their contraband.

The beach stretches from the ancient fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay to the spectacular cliffs of Ravenscar.

Explore the pretty cobbled alleyways and enjoy a coffee or cream tea in one of the traditional tea rooms in Robin Hood's Bay.
