We spent two wonderful days in Des and Heather's fantastic B & B and can honestly say that it could not have been better. If you are planning to explore the fantastic Robin Hood Bay area then book in here. Thanks to our hosts. Fabulous.

This was our second trip to Saxon Villa and it was just as good as we remembered. Des and Heather are the best hosts - there when you need them but not intrusive, friendly, full of helpful advice on the area and very accommodating of any requests. The beds are second to none - we have bought our new mattress... More

It's a very competitive market and with expectations high it's the little things that make the difference. The bookcase and games in the room, the dvds on offer, the marshmallows to have with your hot chocolate, the complimentary port on the evening and most importantly the warm welcome from your hosts make Saxon Villa really special. We will be back.

Saxon House is a delightful Victorian villa, ten minute's walk from seaside village Robin Hood's Bay and the dramatic North Sea coast. It is the perfect B&B for a relaxing weekend in the country, with beautiful walks along the beach or the North York Moors nearby, silent starry nights, cosy rooms and good pubs and restaurants close by. If it... More

friendly welcome. clean and pretty room. breakfast was fine and hot. I wasn't quite as thrilled as the other reviewers, possibly because I was expecting something pretty special at that price in mid-November. I would still recommend it to anyone staying in Robin Hoods Bay as Des and Heather are such warm, helpful hosts, but probably better value for a... More

A commission of £12 is charged by booking.com, per night, and her bill was reduced to £70 by us as a... More

Due to my wife's tight work schedule we could not take up the three for two night offer, but during our stay I wished that my wife's work schedule was not so tight . We were made most welcome in this lovingly restored Victorian villa. The accommodation was superb and spotless, with attention payed to in great detail. We received... More

Des and Heather are excellent hosts and very helpful. The beginning of the day starts with and excellent breakfast, we got our five a day in one go and the cooked breakfast was perfect. The end of the day was nicely finished with a complementary glass of port, ideal after a lovely evening out.
