  • "Nice holiday let in a great location."

    Just a few little things stop this being higher rated or us returning. The outside seating area is next to the bungalow accessed by wooden steps from the courtyard rather than directly from the bungalow. The electric shower water pressure is very low, even on its highest setting. The bed springs are annoyingly loud and you roll into the dip in the middle of the soft mattress. We could hear every word of the holidaying neighbours conversation next door through the wall night. This is the first letting we have been to with no washing machine (always handy for washing dog/beach towels, swim stuff etc) But we still enjoyed our stay, as we love the area.

    Cozy homely feel with beautiful views of Whitby and the surrounding countryside. The dog field was an added bonus (our dogs loved it and we loved the views from it) especially as there was no direct access to the enclosed patio area adjoining the cottage and the steps were a little steep for the dogs. Ample parking Can't wait to visit again

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.
