My partner and I have just come back from a fantastic long weekend away at the 'Smugglers Rock Country House'. Very friendly and warm welcome when we arrived and made to feel right at home. Everywhere was very clean and tidy and the breakfast were very good! Anything we needed to know or wanted was answered or provided without hesitation.... More

Our 2nd invasion of Smugglers Rock! (There were 6 of us!) An excellent base to explore the area. Again we were made most welcome, and the breakfasts were superb, you couldn't get fresher eggs! Set us up for the whole day. I have no hesitation in recommending Smugglers Rock Country House.

What a find! a beautiful house, exceptionally clean, lovely room even though it was in the attic! The bed was very comfortable, very nice touches with filter coffee as well... More

Ravenscar is a pretty national trust area and this property is set on its own with terraced units tenting alongside. If you want anything you need to drive a few miles. Its probably worth considering staying elsewhere and driving in to ravenscar. Breakfast is good and its clean. The tv screen in the room is around 18". There is wifi... More

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us, but feel we must point out a couple of things. When you telephoned to book (the day before you were coming to stay), you were advised that this was the only room available. You were aware that it was an attic room with a compact shower room.

We've just returned from a week in one of the self catering cottages attached to the Country house. The cottages are beautiful, well appointed, spotlessly clean and cosy. It's a wonderful retreat to come home to after a yomp along the Cleveland Way to Robin Hoods Bay or a day out to Whitby. It's quiet, peaceful and relaxing, really great... More

Having stayed in the guest house we decided to try one of their cottages,dog in tow. We were not disappointed as the standard of accommodation was brilliant. Only downside was no cooked breakfast!! Maybe a take away option may be available?? lol .Highly recommended,very relaxing .

The location is perfect for an away from it all break - great views along the coast, hardly any passing traffic, surrounded by farmland and good walks straight out of the door.

We booked in for a three night break with our 7 year old daughter in the B&B. There are also self catering cottages and a small field of caravans. The location is amazing, remote and yet easy to find and away from the hustle and bustle and expense of Whitby. We have stayed in this area many times and keep... More

Return visit last week of May for 3 nights this time. The extra night here made it feel like more of a proper break rather then a quick visit. I won't repeat myself as I have already posted a review last May 2014. All I have to say is that we know we would have trouble finding anywhere else in... More
