  • "I had a great holiday at this little cottage."

    It was well equipped, warm and very cosy. There is an enclosed area apart from the house for dogs to use. It is an easy short drive to Robin Hood's Bay and Whitby. Ideal, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

  • "A delightful little cottage with fabulous views."

    A good location for touring the area. Had everything I needed. The only downside was the door lock. It took me a while to figure out that you have to push the door against the frame. Several times I thought I was either locked in or out. Possibly a new fridge/freezer with the fridge at the top?

    Overslept a number of times because the bed was so comfy! It is a great base to investigate the area from and we look forward to going back next year. The owners are very friendly and they ensured the grass in the dog paddock was kept short and the poo bin was changed regularly as were the dustbins.

    I do think if 3pm is advertised and that is one of the reasons I chose this cottage it should be adhered to. Faulty wardrobe door which came off hinges and hit me in face just below the eye, please ensure this is fixed by owner. did not see owner, no one checked all was ok which was unusual.

We had a lot of snow whilst there and didn't need the heating on above 20, it must have really good insulation. Our 14 year old dog enjoyed the snow and private dog area. The views are stunning.

    Lovely warm little cottage with all the comforts you need, just what we were looking for. Although it's only a mile away from the nearest pub and shops access is via a single lane track with no lighting, so if you meet someone coming the other way you could have a bit of a problem! so we only ventured out during daylight! which suited us anyway.

    we found the cottage immaculate well equipped for our needs and comfortable .The bed was kingsize which was comfy and warm and there was plenty of room to put your clothes . As it is on a farm there are no street lights so the night light in the kitchen is a very good idea to give some light if you need the toilet at night . Abbey view will be our first choice when we go back to Whitby .

    Good facilities and kitchen. A quiet rural location, but not far from Sainsbury's, Whitby etc. However it did not merit the euphoric comments in the visitor's book (Best ever etc etc ) For the price, I would have given it 5/5, but a few niggles lower it somewhat. We made fair comment in the book, but left a separate note for the owners along the lines :- No one ever enquired '' Everything OK? " We arrived on a very cold afternoon. Suspect no one in previous week, as the cottage was not warm. The extra electric heater ( mentioned on line ) was not working. We used our own fan heater to warm it up. Next day, all was cosy. One bedside light was not working - too small and low anyway. Grill pan handle not complete. One pan lid and handle had loose fixing screws. Kitchen taps very stiff Hardly any washing up liquid. Not much food storage space. Why 9 wine glasses(some dirty)? Tourist info! 2012 bus timetable !!!

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.
