    The bed was extremely comfortable and the bed linen, duvets and pillows were also very good quality. The kitchen was well equipment and had everything we needed. There was nothing we could fault. We will definately return.

  • "I stayed here in March this year and was happy to return."

    I LOVE this cottage. It is so comfortable and welcoming. It is very well equipped with additional touches like a welcome pack, chilled water already in the fridge, and very dog friendly with a towel, spare leash and treats. It is the perfect location to explore the area and I can highly recommend this property. I will be back!

  • "Date of stay 18-08-2023 to 25-08-2023 This is an excellent barn conversion into a cosy 1 bedroomed cottage for two people."

    The fixtures and fittings are of a high quality, and everything you could need is supplied. Lovely thick bath towels are supplied, so there is no need to bring your own. The shower is perfect and large with good water pressure and stable temperature. The bedroom is compact, but there is a double bed, a good-sized chest of drawers and a hanging rail with 8 coat hangers, and a bedside table on either side of the bed. There is very little space between the bottom of the bed and the wall, we are not large people so not a problem for us. The bed was very comfy. Don't worry if you forget your teabags, coffee, sugar, washing up liquid, J-cloth etc... there is some supplied to get you started. Other cleaning products and equipment also supplied. The owner had left milk and biscuits for our arrival very much appreciated thank you. This cottage is in a good position for visiting lots of the local heritage sites and beaches. We need to go back to continue with our adventures in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Robins Nest."

    The kitchen is well equipped but no laundry facilities but this was to expected (not in the listing). Very nicely furnished and clean. The location of this property is ideal for exploring the local area; coast, villages and towns. We did find the bedroom a little cramped but being slim people not a problem. Our dog enjoyed her walks around the wildlife lake in the grounds. The Owners are not intrusive but do respond to any queries you may have. Thank you once again for a very enjoyable stay.

  • "Robin's Nest is a lovely cottage, well laid out, very clean and well stocked."

    The owners are very friendly and helpful, but they also provided additional touches of a welcome pack of biscuits and milk, and absolutely everything for a dog. There was a dog towel, bowls, brush and treats. Places often say they are dog friendly but these people really mean it! It is the perfect location to explore the coast or inland and I highly recommend the property and owners. Will definitely book again.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. Glad you enjoyed it and hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

    Well equipped cottage, comfortable accommodation. Bedroom s tight and bed is short. I’m 6’2” and my feet poked through the bottom metal bed rails which was uncomfortable. so if your tall the bed is not the best. The bedroom is tiny and it’s a squeeze to get around the bed. Otherwise it’s a great place.

    We had a great time at Robins nest cottage it suited us in every way, property well laid out, an enclosed private patio was great and especially the adjacent field for use was good as we have a 12year old diabetic insulin dependant golden retriever who doesn't walk far these days, yes maybe the bedroom was a bit tight but you only sleep in it so not a problem for us

    The house is in a lovely area and environment with good parking. The kitchen has everything you need and is nice to prepare food in just could do with a potato masher and large frying pan. We hadn’t expected the bedroom to be quite so small but not much can be done about that.

  • "Robin's Nest is well equipped, clean and comfortable."

    It was cold during our stay, but the central heating kept us cosy and there was everything we needed to cook meals in plus information about local pubs, restaurants and shops if we wanted to eat out. Lots of walks, bike rides and tourist information included. One of the walks Alan suggested in the dry valleys of the Wolds was the highlight of our stay and we were blessed with glorious sunshine in November. We did have a bit of difficulty finding Robin's Nest when we arrived, but Alan also said he had asked Sykes to clarify the directions on the listing, but this had not happened. If you approach from Leven it is the first entrance on the RHS after a slight LH bend with a fiingerpost and a layby on the LHS. You don't actually go as far as the first signs for Brandesburton and if you get to the Blue Rose Country Park you have missed it.

  • "Disappointed there was no washing or ironing facilities."

    Also the cottage had velux windows But no way of opening them. So it made the bathroom especially musky & damp.

    We were sorry and surprised that your stay at Robin’s Nest did not meet your expectations, especially as we have previously received such positive feedback from our guests. We wonder if you might have read the description for our other cottage, PIppistrelle, which is much larger and does have laundry facilities. Robin's Nest is a cosy one bedroom cottage, it is not advertised as having a washing machine or iron and does not have the space for a washing machine to be fitted. With regard to the velux window this will open but it’s primary purpose is for lighting, a fan is fitted for ventilation and a heated towel rail for any damp towels. We take a great deal of pride in ensuring our cottages are cleaned to a high standard and appreciate all comments and recommendations from our guests. We will add an iron, as this may be useful to other guests who choose to attend a race meeting. We sincerely hope that you find a more acceptable accommodation for your next vacation. Property Owner

  • "A good location for a quiet and peaceful stay."

    The cottage is small and compact. The owners have done a great job in converting the barns into 2 cottages and to a good standard. The patio area is a real sun trap for those wanting to get a tan but also has plenty of shade throughout the day. All in all we had a great stay and would recommend the cottage. The only negative would be the fridge didn’t have a freezer department.

    Having the secluded, enclosed patio at the rear of the cottage was ideal for the dog and when the sun was shining it was a sun trap for most of the day.

We enjoyed a variety of walks in the surrounding area and it was only a short drive to some excellent sandy beaches.

Nestled between the villages of Leven and Brandesburton, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, is this charming property, Robin's Nest Cottage.

Set all on the ground floor, the property has been renovated to a high-standard with contemporary fittings and furnishings, perfectly suited for couples looking for a quiet country retreat.

Enter the homely open-plan living space into a kitchen, dining area and sitting room all with muted green walls and laminate floors.

The kitchen has all the appliances needed for cooking up some delicious meals; gas oven and hob, fridge and microwave with an adjacent dining area to enjoy a sociable evening over a home cooked meal.

During quieter evenings step through the doors into the rear enclosed patio where you can sit and relax in the warmth of the afternoon sun or curl up on the sofa and unwind in front of the TV before retiring to the tastefully furnished double bedroom.

While you're in the area, take a long walk with your canine companion through the glorious East Yorkshire countryside or along the Leven Canal to the local fishing ponds and then return to delight in the spacious shower room of the Robin’s Nest for a long soak at the end of the day.

Wander from the property to the local butcher or grocery shop in the nearby villages of Leven or Brandesburton or linger a little longer with a meal out; Italian or Chinese, or perhaps something more traditional from the village pub or fish and chip shop.

Indulge in the rich history of the ancient market town of Beverley less than 7 miles away, boasting the beautiful Beverley Minster and Treasure House Gallery as well as a multiplex cinema, theatre and leisure centre.

For those seeking sea and sand the thriving coastal town of Hornsea, less than 7 miles away, boasts the largest natural inland lake in the country and is an excellent choice for a relaxing afternoon playing beach games or a picnic on the golden sands.
