Property code: G0186

Tucked away in the heart of Robin Hood’s Bay, this 17th-century cottage is an idyllic coastal bolt-hole for couples yearning to explore and enjoy beautiful sandy beaches and the crashing waves of the sea.

Tucked away in the heart of Robin Hood’s Bay is this charming 17th-century cottage for two. Start the day with a windswept stroll along the beautiful sandy beach below with your four-legged friends before jumping in the car to explore the rest of this sought-after stretch of coastline. Afterwards, return to this cosy bolthole for a luxurious soak in the bath or an al fresco meal in the sheltered patio garden.

 

Brimming with character, this delightful cottage is the perfect retreat for couples and canine companions. Step inside off the cobbled walkway that leads down to the sea and climb a flight of stone steps to be greeted by exposed beams, sash windows and original oak doors and cupboards. Cook and dine in the well equipped bijour kitchen before cosying up beside the flame-effect gas fire in the snug lounge. Spend your evenings browsing the stack of books and walking guides, listening to your favourite music on the SONOS system or watching a film together before retreating to the cosy bedroom in the eaves. When the sun is shining, dine alfresco in the terraced garden where you will also find secure bicycle storage.

 

Robin Hood’s Bay is one of the most popular coastal locations in Yorkshire among both human and canine guests. The idyllic cobbled path steps down to the vast sandy beach, upon which crashing waves create a playground for pooches. Wainwright’s famous coast-to-coast walk starts just a few yards from the doorstep, which stretches 190 miles to St. Bees in West Cumbria. Take a trip to Whitby (5.5 miles) to browse its shops and cafes or enjoy a spot of seal watching in Ravenscar (11 miles).

For me, it is the perfect space in the perfect place. I loved every minute of my stay. However, prospective guests need to realise that it is located right at the bottom of the steep road and there are steep steps up to the cottage. This could be unsuitable for people who have difficulty walking.

Beautiful cottage with all you could need in a beautiful location! Only downside would be having to carry heavy bags from the car up the stairs to the cottage but that cannot be helped. You are a stones throw away from the beach and pubs with lots of lovely walks nearby. Really recommend.

Hidden Gem is a beautifully presented cottage with excellent decor and equipment in an ideal location within the village.

My only complaint about RBH is the lack of a bakery. The cottage was compact yet comfortable. WiFi dropped a few times but when you're on holiday this is not a huge concern, it will be back on again shortly. We were lucky with the tide times, which enabled us to walk on the beach after breakfast and in the evening. The dog loved it. There are plentRead morey of great areas to walk within a short car drive as well as from the cottage itself, and the weather is typically English, so come prepared. Hide
