We were made welcome from the start. Sharon carried our luggage to the very quiet comfortable twin room we had booked. From there we had splendid views of the surrounding rugged countryside.I Breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented.

Perfectly situatate for a relaxing night away in peace and tranquility, but close to beautiful landmarks. If you want lively nights you have Scarborough and Whitby 10miles away approximately. Recommend to all

We had a lovely overnight stay. The room was pleasant and comfortable and the breakfast was good. Smugglers Rock is ideally situated for visiting Scarborough, Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and Ravenscar itself is very interesting and attractive.

This review is FAKE. This man did not stay at our property in November as we close at the end of September. Unfortunately, for some reason, he seems to be trying to damage our business by posting an almost identical review to the one he posted in July. We appreciate all the genuine reviews we receive from our guests and... More

Stayed in the well-equipped and warm cottage over a very wet and windy Christmas. Good coming back to the cottage after long beach and cinder-track walks + a pleasure having a small Christmas tree provided and the welcome pack of goodies (thank you Sharon & Mike). Only downside was the bed with a foot panel which meant 6'3" husband had... More
