Fantastic country guest house in a lovely location. The room was spotlessly clean with great attention to detail. The proprietor was on hand and helpful but in no way intrusive. We had a lovely night and the following morning enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. Highly recommended.

Quite remote location but plenty of nice pubs within15 minutes drive for evening meals and it was lovely to return to peace and quiet after a busy day sightseeing. Breakfast was lovely, I can recommend the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on a muffin. Breakfast needed to be ordered the night before and was served only between 8.30 and 9.00... More

Excellent place to stay for exploring the area. The hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable about the best places to eat. Comfortable beds ensure a good nights sleep. Hope to visit again next year (2015)

This is a 19th century house in a fairly isolated position with sea views over farmland. The accommodation is clean and comfortable. Our room was recently refurbished and attractive with a nice new shower room. Breakfast was delicious and the owner, Sharon, friendly and helpful. Each morning we walked down to Ravenscar, about half a mile, for a lovely view... More

There is an ocean view but it's far..the rooms are small and a little stuffy, the staff is super nice. Breakfast is great, fresh and big. There is a flat screen tv in the room, the size of an iPad... There are plenty of beautiful walks in nature around the place, so if you are not planning on spoiling yourself... More

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your big breakfast and found the staff ”super nice”. Just in case potential guests are concerned, room 6 is a lovely room at the front of the house - we certainly would not describe it as small. It has a large airy bathroom and in the bedroom there are two... More

Spent two lovely nights at this brilliant B&B in Ravenscar, near Whitby. Always parking on site and given key to come and go to own time scale. Rooms very well equipped with dressing gowns and tea and coffee, bisuits etc. Also free wifi in all rooms. If you want to go on walks they are just down the road and... More

We had a lovely few days at Smugglers Rock (very interesting history) in a very comfortable room with the most magnificent view out our window - ducks in the pond, sheep and ponies in the fields and distant ocean! Very peaceful with beautiful walks and drives. Sunny breakfast room with lovely cooked breakfast. All as described on website. Thanks Sharon!

Would definitely recommend Smugglers View Cottage. This cottage is well situated between Scarborough and Whitby and half a mile from Ravenscar with its Station Tearooms - well worth a visit. For walkers Stoupe Bay is nearby and an easy way of accessing the beach where you can hunt for jet! Robin Hoods Bay, Staithes, Goathland, Whitby all worth a visit.Immaculate... More

An excellent break in a really lovely area. We stayed in the Smugglers Cove Cottage which was a real home from home with everything you needed. There was a lovely private garden with stunning views for sitting out and plenty of room for the dogs. There were plenty of places to walk and visit nearby. A lovely area, well worth... More
