The cottage was small but it didn't feel like that. We had two adults in the bedroom and two children on the sofa bad. The bedroom was big enough to keep four people's stuff. The rest of the cottage was great too.
Lovely location with plenty to do. Every day we were out for full days of fun.

From arriving to leaving, the owners could not have been better, from delivering fresh vegetable and fresh hen and duck eggs, to advising us on pubs and parking. Spectacular views and a superb base with good walks around and down in to Robin Hoods Bay. Highly recommended

We booked this property in early October without a thought for the weather, however two weeks before our arrival, the snow fell heavily in the UK. I kept in contact with the owner who assured us they would get us into the fairly remote property at least as they owned a 4x4. The plan was to arrange a Tesco home delivery on the day that we arrived, but the on-line service had stopped taking any more bookings due to the snow. So a quick shopping expedition on our way to North Yorkshire and we were excited. The place is about 1/2 mile off the main road and we found it no problem even in the dark. We were met by Kaye, the owner who soon put us at ease and after a quick run down of the cottage, explained where the local hostelry was. I had been nominated chef for the week, so a quick search round "my kitchen" put me in a great party mood. It was perfect, everything to hand, clean and well equipped. It is a farm cottage on a working smallholding with dogs, chickens, sheep and the alpacas over the fence. The property has a large comfy double bedroom and in the lounge the comfiest sofa bed I have ever slept on. It has constant hot water, a great shower and a stable door to look out into the foldyard. We spent lazy days at home, with the small TV, and plenty of books in the property it was a relaxing break. We are not walkers or ramblers but spent our time equally between "the Bay" and Whitby exploring the lovely shops, pubs and harbour. You cannot go to Whitby without buying smoked Kippers from Fortunes. you cannot visit the Bay without a couple of pints in the pub looking out to sea. We only needed assistance once in our front wheel drive car but the locals were as helpful as any you would wish to meet. Would we go again, you bet your auntie Nelly we would. Lovely cottage, Lovely people, Lovely area!

A lovely little cottage, exactly as described: warm, comfortable, well-equipped, ideally located - excellent value. The owners strike exactly the right balance of being friendly, helpful and non-intrusive. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

We stayed here for 4 days and used it as a base from which to tour the beautiful surrounding countryside and coast. It was ideal.
The cottage was probably the cleanest we've ever found.
Good places to eat,all within a fairly short drive.
The owner was a little sweetie, and we loved watching her collecting her eggs and tending her animals.
We really loved the area and will return someday soon.
