    Warm and clean and well appointed with nice furnishings and a fabulous hot tub. We loved our stay here. Friendly owners. We had lunch at the Hare and Hounds at Hawkser, recommended. A coffee machine would be the only improvement.

    The cottage is cleans, comfortable and the hot tub is ace! It's a short drive away from Scarborough, Robin Hood's Bay and Whitby. The cottage was easy to find and not too far from local amenities.

    First night something tripped the electrics. Left a voicemail and within 10 mins there was someone to fix it at our door. Wendy was lovely and full of apologies. Hot tub was just what Dr ordered after visits to Robin Hoods Bay and surrounding towns.

    The cottage was lovely and clean and had everything that was needed for a 3 night stay and the owners had left milk and biscuits for us which was a really nice gesture from them l,unfortunately for us we only stayed 1 night out of 3 as we found the bed extremely uncomfortable and also was concerned about the step when getting out of the shower also the route to thr hot tub tricky as no proper path to if also once out of it and heading back inside we found that the outside light didn't work until you had reached the back door so that was difficult in the dark,as i day the cottage inside is lovely and welcoming but the experience was marred by a couple of things or maybe it just wasn't for us

    Thankyou for your feedback we welcome all feedback and improve where we can , unfortunately beds are a personal preference and we try to cater for everyone but sometimes this is not possible , the shower step is only a small one and never been an issue before as with the route to the hot tub. I could of altered the light quite easily for you it looks like a previous guest has moved the sensor its now fixed . we are always on hand should any guest have a problem during there stay with us . kind regards Ben and Wendy .

    The cottage was absolutely spotless, and the owners have really thought about the little added extras that make a stay extra special. We stayed in Carter's, and relaxing in the hot tub after a day out exploring the different bays and costal towns, with the stars above was amazing! We can't wait to come back and stay again. A little gem of a place.

  • "This was a sweet little cottage in a great location handy for walks along the Cleveland Way and the cinder trail and within easy reach of Whitby and Scarborough."

    The listing states that double glazing has been recently fitted and the owners have opted for fully opaque glass. This made the cottage very gloomy inside. Also be aware that the fridge is a larder with no ice compartment so not able to freeze ice packs for picnic lunches or make ice for drinks.

    Thankyou for your feedback , we opted for the opaque glass purely for privacy at the front of the cottages the glass at the rear of the property are clear were the views of the countryside are. personally i dont think the opaque glass makes it any darker but thanks for your comments kind regards Mr Pullen (owner) .

  • "Very lovely stay."

    Beautiful little cottage with just about everything you need. Perfect for weekends away or short weeks holiday. Lots of sight seeing around, and towns not to too far if you need anything. The only thing me and my partner would say, is that the living room can get quite cold in the evenings (probably just winter months), even with the heating on. Extra blankets would be nice, or a draft excluder for the front door maybe. Other than that, it was perfect.

  • "The accommodation was perfect for us."

    The location is fantastic close to the Cleveland Way and Cinder Track but in a quiet area. Very easy to get to Scarborough, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay all within a 20 minute drive. You can walk if you prefer and if you don’t fancy doing the round trip, the buses are excellent. We walked from the cottage to Robin Hoods Bay via the Cleveland Way and back along the cinder track. Another day we parked at Robin Hoods Bay and walked along the Cleveland Way to Whitby and back the same way as the views were outstanding both ways. We also visited Staithes and walked from there to Whitby but then caught the bus back. The cottage itself is very clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. The highlight for us was the hot tub which was fantastic after a days walking. Plenty of good pub meals within a short drive also. We had good meals at the Hayburn Wyke and the Bryherstones and in Scarborough we had a lovely meal at Giannis but our favourite meal of the week was at AZ in Scarborough. This is a great base for anyone and you won’t be disappointed at Carters. Owners are on hand also if you need anything.

  • "We arrived, early evening, during a wet November weekend."

    The sat nav got us to the village and the emailed directions took us to the door. Having unpacked, reviewed our surroundings and chilled with a spot of tv (basic Sky). With only 2 rooms, with living room and kitchen as one, we sat on the very comfortable double recliner! The bedroom was a double pine bed. The built in heaters arent quite sufficient, but the additional electrical heater proved its worth and flexibility during the rest of the stay! Located approx 9 miles from Scarborough and 12 from Whitby, with the coastline to the east of the cottage, it was a good base to visit both locations. Our days consisted of a visit to either of the two areas, return to a couple of hours in the hot tub, which got this place our custom - absolutely delightful to look over the fields, in pouring rain, in a warm hot tub!!! Due to weather, there were a couple of places we decided not to visit, but there is good access to Goathland (famed by Heartbeat / Adensfield), Robin Hoods Bay, Bogle Hole and Falling Foss!! Overall, the break allowed us to recharge our batteries, muchly appreciated!!

    The cottage was lovely and clean, spacious and the bed was very comfy. Shower was nice and hot, facilities were all in perfect working order and décor was lovely. The sofa was a two seater recliner and very comfy. We were left some chocolates and milk by the owners. Sky TV was a bonus and some DVD's to watch. The hot tub was absolutely amazing and very relaxing, however it could have done with being more enclosed or covered because some nights were very windy and cold so we had to get out. The garden area is lovely and big with an amazing countryside view, however we didn't get to use it as it was windy and rainy. The cottage soon warmed up with the use of the electric heaters, however there was still a slight draft. We didn't meet the owners during our week stay but the people around the cottages were lovely and friendly. We had the best and most relaxing time and we would definitely return. Great value for money.
