    Of all the rentals in Robin Hoods Bay this one caught my eye. Wortley Cottage. As soon as you see the interior on the pictures you see a quality, thought out, home away from home. I would describe the interior as bright whites and summer sky blues, throw in some small helping of browns and you have a place that is so cozy, warm and romantically placed you'll never want to leave. The holiday brochure says it all. The downstairs is fully functioning with kitchen, which my wife used every day. The sofas are as comfy as and the TV works very well to. In case you want to keep up with your soaps ;-) The 2nd floor has the main bedroom with ensuite and a roomy shower. Plus another bathroom for the other people who stay with you. The bedroom is armed with a hair dryer, a dressing table and big chest of drawers. Plus a small wardrobe built in by the window. The beds all over are covered in feather downed duvets and pillows, scatter cushions and throws. You cant fail to be cozy at night with the windows open. The 3rd floor has another double and twin room. Both have drawers and wardrobes. Just some tips here. Be careful as there are no banisters so don't miss your footing or get to tipsy at the pubs :-D You are on the main foot path through the village to the other end. That's not a bad thing but people like to look in through the windows and ogle at the interior even though you're sitting there. Just tilt the blinds so no one can see in while you have tea and biscuits. As for upstairs, the ensuite, the shower puts out a lot of water. Which is great but the plug hole doesn't cope to well and doesn't drain away as quick. So don't have it wide open, it wont detract from the enjoyment of being soaked for ages in the shower. All in all the facilities in Wortley Cottage are fantastic. If you want a romantic getaway this is it. Well decorated and homely, lighting is wonderful, colours are perfect, shabby chicness through out. Get booking as this is a well priced cottage. When you do arrive there is a before and after folder on the cottage before the owner got to work on it. AMAZING! Have a look. We never left the village for the 7 days we were there. Why would you? There's the beach, rock pools, fossil cliffs to go searching for. Long walks where ever, 3 local pubs, chippy! Coffee shops, bistros, gift shops. Dogs are welcome everywhere in the village. Our basset was happy as, especially as there are 3 resident bassets in the village. First order of any dogs day is a long walk and investigation of the beach in the morning. Followed by breakfast and more walks, especially to the pub. The pubs are great although one, The Bay Hotel, is very very busy with tourists during the day and evening. They are the main pub for grub so understandably the reason for being so busy. The Dolphin is a nice pub to and serves great choices of beer and also has a great selection on it's menu. Worth a visit. The Laurel Inn is the best pub to chill in, no food but plenty of character and an open fire roaring most nights during the autumn/winter months. The best pub for us to relax in for us. Try the chippy up by the the side of the bistro and sweet shop. Not an obvious place to find it but it's up there. Superb! But by no means think this village is crammed with shops, it isn't and that is great because the village retains its beauty. You must go for an explore too round the back streets. Hideaways galore, its amazing. If you've come for night life and action you're in the wrong place. You won't appreciate this. Most supplies can be bought from the store at the end of the street and top of the hill. But if you do want to go further, there is Whitby up the road and Scarborough the other way. If you are up for travelling elsewhere these are the nearest and best. Whitby is my Fave.
