Reviews

We've had a super break in a lovely cottage. We've had some amazing walks, including to Whitby along the Cleveland Way. The weather has been brilliant. We love RHB!David and Kate - 28th August 2017
Lovely holiday break. Nice cottage. Janet and Rebecca - 3rd June 2017
A very relaxing time in this lovely cottage. Wonderful weather complementing this excellent location. Andy and Mandy - 27th May 2017
Wonderful stay- recharge of batteries. Cliff Head is amazing! Light and spacious and everything we needed for a relaxing, peaceful time. Adrian and Des - 12th May 2017
We had a brilliant four nights staying in Robin Hood's Bay. The cottage was brilliant and perfect for our short break. The weather on the other hand was not always so brilliant and although we had some brilliant sun we also had some not so beautiful hail. Staying so close to the sea was much enhanced by the sound of the crashing waves and the screeching seagulls. Watching the seagukls family politics on next doors roof was very entertaining. The Bay Hotel is brilliant with great pub grub and beer. Thanks very much. Mike and Sarah - 23rd April 2017
This cottage and Robin Hood's Bay are definitely worth the long trip from Germany. Cliff Head is a cosy, well-equipped cottage with splendid views. You're so close to everything! Especially enjoyed the walks to Whitby and to the seal colony in Ravenscar. Have gone shopping in Helmsley and also loved the Blues night at the Grosvenor Hotel and the Ghost walk here in Robin Hood's Bay. We hope to be back some time! Thank you!Jurgen and Martina - 15th April 2017
Arrived at our favourite bay to find this lovely little cottage with views to die for (even a loo with a view!).Everything about it is fantastic. Parking at the side of the cottage is a big plus. Came for a week for my birthday and don't want to go home! So lovely in every way from start to finish, even the weather. Can't wait to return. Tracy and Gail - 8th April 2017
We've had a very good time in this cute little cottage by the sea where you can glimpse the water from almost every windows. The sun has shone every day! John and Maureen - 1st April 2017
What a lovely charming cottage, had a great few days. Everything just perfect. Thank you. The views are the best in the bay. Mr and Mrs Roe - 27th March 2017
We had a really enjoyable week at the cottage. Comfortable and warm even though chilly outside. Had some lovely walks and the car never moved from the parking spot. Thanks to all involved in the upkeep of this cottage. Alan and Donna - 28th January 2017
Fantastic cottage we could not recommend highly enough ! Mrs N Nattress - 24th January 2017
This is probably the nicest cottage we have ever stayed in. Its location and views are fantastic.Mrs J Eastwood - 8th January 2017

Cozy with fabulous views. Lovely pub at Hawsker.Mrs A Dixon - 3rd October 2016

We would happily book this property again, and in fact intend to very soon.Ms J Wright - 26th May 2016

Cliff Head Cottage is superb. The location was fantastic. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and didn't want to leave. I can't recommend Cliff Head Cottage too highly.Mrs D Halliwell - 29th June 2015
Great place to stay I would recommend it to anyone.Miss S Pearson - 15th June 2015
We adored this property - by far the best one we have stayed in so far, beautifully decorated, very comfortable and clean, no detail had been left to chance by the owners. Gorgeous views of course too! Would definitely recommend!Miss S Rothen - 26th May 2015
