Exquisite three-storey sandstone cottage tucked away in the heart of the fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay; one of Yorkshires prettiest villages in prime position to explore the rugged coastlines.

Nestled behind the narrow, cobbled streets of the picture-perfect fishing village of Robin Hood’s Bay is this charming sandstone cottage. Situated on the North York Moors Heritage Coast, families/friends and their canine companions will love the close proximity to a number of coast and countryside walks. You and your four-legged friends will love exploring and soaking up the dramatic, rugged coastline, the sandy beaches and the heather-clad hills of the National Park. It’s location also means you have easy access to the many shops and restaurants within the bustling village.

With an eclectic blend of traditional, country-cottage chic and contemporary pops of colour, this cottage is full of character. The ground floor is home to a lounge with rustic charm and a cosy wood burner. Up a few stairs, you will find the modern, but well-equipped kitchen, with a small dining table in the corner. Another narrow staircase leads up to a bright and airy double bedroom and a stylish family bathroom. The second bedroom can be found on the next floor and affords views across the rooftops to the sea. Outside, there is a quaint cobbled courtyard – a rarity in this area!

Should you want to venture further than the village itself, Whitby (6 miles) has lots to offer. A popular seaside resort, it has a range of independent shops/eateries lining its medieval streets and with its strong connections to Dracula, the 13th-century ruins of St Hilda's Abbey are part of the town’s rich heritage. You could even take the steam railway to another popular seaside resort, Scarborough (16.5 miles). Head inland to explore the natural beauty of the North York Moors National Park, which is also home to many picturesque towns/villages, each with their own character.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We had a lovely stay at Lenwood. Great location in the village, clean comfortable and well-equipped. Our 6'3" son had a little difficulty negotiating the stairs but that's all part of the charm. Fantastic welcome hamper.

Lovely little property. Everything you need. Haven't slept so well in some time. 8 or 9 solid hours every night. Very, very dog friendly inside. Throws provided so dog can feel at home as well.

Unfortunately decorators woke us up on the opposite property at 7.30am with noisy ladders. Could this work have been done during lockdown or at least started at 9am?

We really enjoyed our stay in Lenwood cottage. Finding supplies of tea, biscuits and wine was a lovely touch especially after a long journey. The cottage is cosy and quirky; a lovely place to return to and relax in front of the log burner in the evenings. The location is great too.

A comfortable cottage in a picturesque setting. A great location if you can cope with the narrow stairs in the cottage and the steep paths in the town. Good local pubs, excellent fish and chip shop and a useful village stores. Be aware, though, that some places close at the end of the season.

The selling factor for us is location location location with added bonus of allowing us to bring our dog. It has permit parking and a very homely, welcoming vibe plus the added bonus of a welcome pack for both you and your furbaby. If you want to stay in a cosy cottage with lots of positives then Lenwood is a good choice.

There was a lovely welcome pack and the cottage was more like a home than a holiday rental, there were loads of towels and it was well equipped, it was also near the bottom of the Bay and the beach but was lovely and quiet.

A very welcoming and well equipped cottage. As is the nature of properties in the village access within and to the property is quite steep, but otherwise the location is excellent. The welcome pack is a nice touch. Parking is reasonably close by and easier than anticipated.
