Beautiful property in a stunning location. The owners have obviously gone to great lengths renovating the property and have made it feel really homely, it’s got lot of character and the outside space is amazing. Excellent location if you have a car for travelling between Robin Hoods Bay/Scarborough/Whitby but there are fantastic walks straight from the cottage. The location and views were really amazing and we loved it so much we’d definitely come back! Thank you for such a lovely stay David and Monika, you have obviously worked so hard on your home and it really was faultless!

Miss R,
