The property

A stylishly presented, 17th century terraced cottage nestling in the heart of the delightful fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay.

This Robin Hood's Bay cottage has been extensively refurbished to a high standard, whilst sympathetically retaining many original features.

Wooden floors, stone fireplaces, lime washed beams and trusses, batten doors and latches are all cleverly used to create a superb holiday home.

Set over three floors, this Robin Hood's Bay cottage has three good sized bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, plus the family bathroom has a luxurious freestanding bath and stone fireplace, perfect for a long soak after a hard day's sightseeing.

The open-plan living area incorporates a sitting area with an electric woodburner-effect fire, a well-equipped kitchen and a dining area.

A two minute stroll takes you down the winding, cobbled pathway to the shoreline, passing quaint cottages and a selection of pubs and gift shops.

With rock pooling and paddling on the beach, as well as excellent walking, including the Cleveland Way and Coast to Coast long distance walks crossing here, this is a lovely place to stay on a cottage holiday.

With the breathtaking North York Moors on the doorstep, this wonderful Robin Hood's Bay cottage couldn't be better located.

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.
