Property code: G0186

Nestled away in Robin Hood’s Bay, a hidden gem itself on the Yorkshire coastline, this cosy cottage is a true romantic escape for two. Within the village, the cottage is set back a little from the bay to ensure peace and tranquillity, yet with boutique shops and fresh seafood eateries less than half a mile away and the beach around 100 metres from home. Historic, steep stone steps lead up to this 17th-century character cottage, a comfortable place to stay that’s also dog-friendly with bowls and treats left out for your four-pawed friends.

Enter the property directly into the kitchen/diner where a pebble-effect electric fire creates a warm spot to warm up cold hands and toes after a long, rewarding hike or swim. Pop the kettle on for a quality Yorkshire brew and begin to settle in. The lounge is decorated with soft seating options, a quality Sonos sound system and a Smart TV next door, creating a restful space to unwind on an evening. Upstairs, the first floor is split into a double bedroom with an exceptionally comfortable bed and a quality, modern bathroom with a refreshing rainfall shower over a bath. The accommodation’s final highlight is the patio garden directly outside, furnished with a table and chairs and a chimenea to sit by when the temperature drops.

As well as being an extremely appealing, scenic seaside destination, Robin Hood’s Bay is also well-connected for walkers and bike riders. Famous trails including the Cleveland Way and the Cinder Track run through the village, while it’s also the starting point of the mighty Coast to Coast walk which leads 182 miles cross-country to St Bees, Cumbria. Much closer to home, you can walk to Whitby (6 miles) or Scarborough (13 miles) with ease, following a clifftop route and admiring seals in the waters as you go.

We had such a great stay at Hidden Gem. The location was perfect (although the steps were a bit of a killer after a few days). We were able to take our puppy with us and he had the best time on the beach chasing other dogs and getting lots of fresh air. The local pubs and restaurants were excellent and welcoming. I recommend this, but would warn thRead moreat access is not easy, parking is a nightmare and a long way up a very very steep hill. People with access issues should reconsider. Hide

A wonderful cottage, beautifully appointed and decorated to a high standard. Literally yards from the beach. Not only is the accommodation wonderful (if a little fun for anyone tall), it's an exception location for anyone who owns a dog - all of the pubs, restaurants and shops warmly welcome dogs. On the subject of welcoming dogs, not only does JayRead morene permit you to take your dog but she also provided bowls and a bag of treats - there was a lovely bottle of wine for the humans. Hide

Cottage is at the bottom of a VERY steep hill then a steep climb up two flights of steps to accommodation. Definitely not suitable for dogs or someone with walking issues. No welcome pack. Clean and warm but would not return. Very disappointed overall.

A very comfortable, clean, dog-friendly cottage in an ideal location for the all of the village amenities and access to the beach. I would recommend pre-booking parking (we used the Fisherhead car park at The Old School House), forget about the car for the duration and take yourselves off on a long hike or two.

Hidden Gem is a lovely, clean, cosy cottage. Parking is up a steep hill but this is made clear in the booking details. The stairs in the house are quite steep but that is the only minor issue. The rest of the house is delightful, well equipped and comfortable. The bathroom is modern as is the kitchen. All in all, a lovely place
