Just returned from our second break of three nights. It's been a great stay thanks to Des & Heather's warm and friendly welcome. Breakfasts were excellent and substantial enough to set you up for a good day's walking. Very comfortable and quiet room with a superb view. Looking forward to our third visit.

Des and Heather were thoughtful hosts and made us feel very welcome. The location is ideal with parking and a short stroll to nearby restaurants and pubs. Breakfast was delicious and set us up for...

We only stayed for one night but certainly wish it was for longer. Des & Heather were very welcoming and the perfect hosts. Our bedroom was large and decorated in a lovely pastel colour, accessorised stylishly and overlooking the manicured garden. The bed was comfy and the shower was lovely in the morning. Breakfast was gorgeous with lots of fresh... More

The breakfast was excellent with a range of fresh fruit and Greek honey yogurt, the full English breakfast was also... More

Robin Hood Bay and the surrounding area is beautiful and Des and Heather's Saxon Villa complements the area. Friendly, warm and welcoming. We had never stayed here before but certainly would again. Room was comfortable with superb views, breakfast was lovely and Des gave us some really good tips for our touring and evening meals--Highly recommended

Easy to recommend Saxon Villa to anyone looking for a a comfortable and enjoyable stay in this part of the world. Wonderful house and room and an incredibly lovely garden. Des and Heather are both very welcoming and breakfast was excellent. Without doubt one of the best places I've stayed.

4 of us walking the Cleveland Way + car and driver. All agreed Saxon Villa was the best of 8 places we stayed. Great welcome - including cold beers! Delightful house/garden/cats/view. Onsite parking. Decent pub just along the road, and close to Robin Hood's Bay. Excellent breakfast. Friendly and welcoming host & hostess. Wished we could have stayed longer.

Des and Heather were such welcoming hosts and have created a warm... More
