Our second visit to Florence Cottage and everything was as good as the first time.

Mr Andrew Whittaker,

Lovely cottage, great location. Lovely little extras.

Katy, Sean, Tilly and Isaac,

Lovely cosy cottage, perfect for a cold and wet weekend!

Past Customer,

An excellent property, will be booking again for next year!

Mr Andrew Whittaker,

I honestly couldn't ask for more! The owners have managed to think of everything you would need - especially if you have a dog! We have stayed in many cottages around the UK and this is the most well equipped. The cottage was absolutely spotless!

Emma, Stacey, Chris and Ellie Mae,

No ifs, buts or maybes, the cottage was excellent. Would thoroughly recommend it! Thank you

Drew ,

Really lovely cottage, very well equipped has everything you need! Beautiful area lots of beaches. Amusements at Saltburn pier are dog friendly

Linda, Kenneth and Ice,


Area Information

Hinderwell is a small village between Runswick Bay and Staithes.  The village has a great amount of community spirit and residents take part in an annual scarecrow competition which makes for family fun viewing as the creations line villager's gardens and businesses. There are many amenities including a butcher, a post office, church, a village hall, fish and chip shop, two inns and tennis courts . Hinderwell is an ideal base for walking holidays as it close to many coastal walking routes. Situated on the A174, it is ideal for those wanting to visit Whitby using the regular bus service. This avoids you paying to park in Whitby's busy car parks.
