“Orchard cottage - Super location and spectacular scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Extremely tranquil and a must for walkers. We had a young baby so walks out with the pram were not very practical but we we went to Filey,Whitby, and Robin Hoods Bay which are all short drives away. The cottage definitely requires some new carpets and kitchen flooring, they were quite old and grubby. BBQ and most kitchen appliances present, well worth a visit. Please be awa no WIFI :(

We booked Stable Cottage for a short break at the start of July and had such a wonderful time we're already planning our return. The owner, Nealia, is a very hospitable and welcoming lady, all communication before we arrived was easy and the whole process was very pleasant. The cottage was beautiful, set on a quiet working farm. Very peaceful area but only a 5 minute walk from the beach (which has a youth hostel serving coffee and food), and about 20 minute from the picturesque village of Robin Hood's Bay. We had our own private garden (BBQ provided), a beautiful well equipped kitchen, very spacious lounge area and the double room had gorgeous sea-view. The cottage is very comfortable, with an excellent balance of modern furnishings and finishes against the traditional feel of the building (to a much higher standard than some of the other cottages we considered!). Would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to escape to the country whilst remaining close enough to civilisation to be able to wander into town when it suits them. I would however agree with the comment below that the clifftop walk to Robin Hood's Bay is up a steep path, be prepared for the walk! Also the steps to the bedrooms in the cottage are narrow and quite steep, possibly not ideal for little ones, and although there is a village shop nearby your closest supermarket is a 20 minute drive away. Still I personally consider the standard of the cottage and it's beautiful location to be well worth the trip!

Spent a long weekend in May. Lucky with the weather. The location is great, down a winding country lane. Once at the cottage there is a walk down to the beach (uphill on the way back though!) It's about a 20 min walk to Robins Hood Bay along the cliff - but be warned it is quite a steep climb up to the cliff path. You can also walk along the beach to Robins Hood Bay but you have to be aware of the tides. Robins Hood Bay is beautiful - very quaint. We stayed in Orchard Cottage, there were just two of us - it does accommodate 4 plus cot. The accommodation was first class. The owners website does not do the place justice and they should really update their pictures.
