  • "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

  • "This is an amazing property."

    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.

  • "A beautiful property."

    So warm. So well equipped. An abundance of towels. The little things that make such a difference. Loads of loo roll. Cooking oil. Tea and proper coffee. Separate freezer. Washing powder and dishwasher tablets. Every guest was pulling back the bedding to find out where they could buy the mattresses. Already looking to book again.

    Hi Alexandra We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your kind words ! Property Owner

  • "We have been here before and normally go down to the beach and use the Cafe and toilets at the YHA rather than walking into RHBay or back up the hill to the cottage."

    However due to a landslip the YHA is closed until June at the earliest we were told. Not a major problem but something people should be aware of.

    Special mention to the beds really comfortable, the views are amazing and the garden is the best of all , if you are lucky enough for a hot day and warm evening then I can think of no better place to have a family bbq

  • "The pictures of the house on the website didn't really do it justice, it was even better!"

    It was a brilliant house for a family holiday, everyone loved it from the grandparents down to the grandchildren. The garden was amazing. Bring back the chickens and it would be perfect. Made use of the tennis court too, a nice extra feature.

  • "We booked this holiday for a family get together for our Golden Wedding Anniversary having searched for a property that would appeal to three generations and we were not disappointed."

    The house was very well furnished and extremely comfortable. The lovely garden was a real plus for the children to run around and play in while we relaxed ourselves outside and enjoyed the lovely weather, taking advantage also of the gas barbecue for a great family afternoon dining in the garden. 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.

  • "A fabulous old farm house full of character but bang up to date with good extremely well appointed kitchen c/w induction hob and utensils for every occasion."

    We stayed here with 6 adults and 4 children and the 6 lovely bedrooms suited our needs. The winding drive down from the main road is worth it and to have the sea only 5 minutes walk away is another feature. There are fine views out of every window and the garden was ideal for us. We would recommend this Farmhouse to everybody.

  • "No complaints whatsoever."

    The farmhouse was exactly as described, and was an ideal central location for all the places we wanted to visit on our annual family holiday. If we ever want to return to the area we will certainly bear this property, and Sykes Cottages in mind. The key pick-up info, and other points of interest, and suggested places to eat etc, supplied by the owner were excellent.

  • "The Farmhouse exceeded our expectations, everyone loved their bedrooms, the living room , kitchen and dining room were all spacious and comfortable so we could all get together to eat , chat or play games etc."

    The gardens really have the wow factor, everywhere you look there is a view to die for , the grandkids loved the swings and slide , there’s a lovely table and chairs to accommodate everyone to sit outside on a nice day and we took advantage of the gas bbq which was a real bonus. The house is in a great position to visit so many places of interest or if you want total relaxation then I could think of nothing better than just staying in with a good book. One tip I will say is if there is a clear night then have a look at the stars with minimal light deprivation it really is a sight to behold ! Finally I booked this holiday for the full family to get together we all created some really good memories and they have all expressed a wish to do it again, I will have no hesitation in recommending the Farmhouse as a wonderful place to stay.

  • "The Farmhouse met all our needs."

    The garden space was fabulous, as was the view. Inside the layout was so good that our 3 year old grandson didn't want to leave. The kitchen had plenty of glassware,crockery etc. - even toddler plates and cutlery. The only slight annoyance was the oven, where two of the knobs were loose, making it difficult to be certain of the temperature. (There was a note saying that the parts had been ordered.) That detail aside, we had a fantastic stay and would definitely return.

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.

Electric cars can be charged at the property but there would be a supplementary charge, information will be at the property and please contact the owner regarding this.
