  • "Cottage was lovely and as described what let this cottage down was the lack of cleaning done before we arrived ."

    Drips down the front of the bin ,table had all crumbs left on it and dog hair was everywhere ,wet mop left smelling in a cupboard and unfortunately on the last day we discovered mouldy food left in the glad to say we still had a lovely time in hunmanby but definitely need to upgrade the cleaning at this property .

    Thank you for highlighting the poor cleaning. We have bought this to the attention of the cleaning company along with a copy of your review so they can rectify their methods. Kind regards Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at Rosie cottage."

    Keep reading for all the pros! There were a few minor things we wanted to inform you of. These are not to be interpreted as negatives, just a few things that would have made our stay perfect. When we arrived, the filter coffee machine had an old, used filter in, so we didn’t use this. The cleaners need to ensure they’re checking this. The lounge needs a coffee table. We saw others had said this in reviews, but unfortunately the issue had not yet been sorted. The baskets used as side tables looked lovely, but not practical. One of the baskets was broken so the lid kept falling in. So just wasn’t appropriate for drinks to stand on. There were some dirty splashes on the lounge wall near the door, either from a dog shaking or a spilt drink. It was quite noticeable so I’m surprised the cleaning team didn’t see it. To match the high standards that run through the cottage, some better quality toilet roll would be good. Some sort of caddy on the wall in the shower to hold items would also be useful. Also - black out blinds in the bedrooms would stop the glaring street light from illuminating the rooms all night long. Other than that, everything was great. The beds were so comfy, lovely bedding, beautiful cottage garden, all the kitchen bits and bobs we could have dreamed of, again, all high quality items. Netflix was logged in so we could cosy down and watch some films. Would definitely stay again. Thank you

  • "The pros first."

    Beautiful large bedrooms with spotless bedding and lots of storage. Lovely garden to sit in and enjoy the flowers and birds. Kitchen well stocked with everything you require. We managed to park opposite the cottage each night. Now the cons. This property is definitely not for anyone with mobility issues. Steep steps all over - inside and out. The lounge is not equipped for more than two people comfortably and needs a coffee table. The shower needs a good spring clean.

  • "What a lovely cottage."

    The facilities were good, location to other areas was good. The local peaple were so friendly and inviting. If I could move to the area I would. We would definitely rebook next year. The little touches like the hampers were nice too. Remmy our dog loved the enclosed back garden.

    Thank you so much, glad you and your dog enjoyed being at Rosie cottage. Hope to see you again one day. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in a great situation."

    It was very comfortable and had just about everything you would need. I would have liked a clock in the living room and a full length mirror somewhere, but appreciate that these are not essentials. I may be stupid but could not find the dishwasher listed in the amenities and there is a definite technique required for the door lock. We were lucky in that we got parked reasonably close to the cottage daily. Understand why the double yellows outside on the corner, but at another time it could be a bit of a walk. The church bells have a mixed reaction. I got used to them but less so my wife. The real plus points were the welcome packs when we arrived. A selection of Yorkshire goodies and another one with tea, coffee and biscuits were such a nice touch. Would definitely stay here again when in the area

    Thank you for the feedback, we hope you can stay again another time. Best regards. Property Owner

  • "Superb cottage."

    I am not sure if in the details of the cottage that there is mention of not really being suitable for anyone disabled. There are two very deep steps at the front door, steps inside from the dining room to the kitchen. The stairs are quite steep and the step coming out of the bedrooms is quite difficult to manage if you are disabled.

    The parking is an issue arriving on a Friday at 5pm a really busy time to find a space close by . We appreciate the problem with the property not having its own drive or parking space.

    Thanks for the feedback, we dont usually have a problem parking, sorry you did when you arrived. Glad you liked the cottage. Property Owner

    It was a delight to come back to this little haven every evening after a busy day exploring the local area! It really felt like a home from home. It is perfectly located within the village and we were able to park opposite the property without difficulty.

The property

Nestled in the small village of Hunmanby, within North Yorkshire, is this superb period cottage.

Internally, the property has been renovated to provide a warm and welcoming base for friends and families seeking an escape to the countryside, within close proximity to the beautiful Flamborough Headland Heritage Coast.

To the front of the property is a spacious dining room with a feature fireplace where you can gather for a delicious home-cooked meal of an evening, or bring some board games with you and use this space to spread out and enjoy a friendly game.

Walk through to the sitting room and delight in its contemporary decor with quality furnishings to curl up and unwind into the evening, with an original brick fireplace housing an open fire to keep you warm and toasty.

The kitchen is wonderfully placed to the rear of the cottage and has been fitted to a high standard with all the appliances you could need to rustle up some delicious meals.

Resting on the first floor are two well-presented bedrooms, consisting of a double and twin, both of which have a range of furniture for storing your personal items.

Take a refreshing drink out to the patio area where you can simply enjoy the fresh country air whilst your pet runs around freely.

Hunmanby is a lovely village with access to a range of traditional Yorkshire pubs and restaurants for that fine dining experience, as well as a selection of shops and supermarkets for picking up those last-minute essentials.

You are close to the beautiful Flamborough Headland Heritage Coast for a plethora of country and coastal trails, with ample opportunities for birdwatching and photography at the RSPB Bempton Cliffs Seabird Centre.

Also nearby is the Sunday Times beach of the year 2018, Filey Beach, which is ideal for those seeking to explore the coast and spend the afternoon sunbathing, swimming or playing a variety of beach games.

Travel towards the thriving coastal town of Scarborough which has plenty of attractions which are well-worth a visit.

Scarborough Castle dates back over 3,000 years and has stunning views of the Yorkshire coastline.

Keen walkers will enjoy the Japanese theme of Peasholm Park, as well as the SEA LIFE Scarborough being nearby which has family-friendly exhibits with a range of exotic sea creatures to spot; something your little ones will delight in.

Return to Stonegate for a relaxing evening with your loved ones in front of the warming fire.
