We stayed at Chapel Cottage over Christmas, what a wonderful little cottage it is. We had a fabulous time, the weather was perfect even though it blew a whoolie constantly all the time we were there! It's the coast, what do you expect?! The cottage is perfectly situated right in the heart of the village and the pub does excellent meals. There are lovely walks right on the doorstep too. The cottage is very well equipped with a beautiful kitchen and a 'to die for' shower in the bathroom. Just a couple of minor details need attention, the first of which is that there is nowhere to plug the hairdryer in near the mirror in the main bedroom, you need another socket there. The other one is the thermostat for the heating needs moving because when you light the fire the heating goes off in the whole house. The thermostat picks up the heat in the sitting room so it thinks the house is warm enough but it isn't, the sitting room is warm enough but the rest of the house is cold because the heating has switched itself off. Yes, you can turn the thermostat up but then you're sat in the sitting room cooking! Oh, and the bed, you need to send that down to Devon and we'll look after it for you - such wonderful heavenly nights sleeps! We've been looking all over our house for somewhere to fit one the same size in!
Great Communication from the management, arrived to a well presented and cosy cottage. Perfect for pets with a very nice lounge/ dining room and a fully equipped kitchen. We found the bed a little uncomfortable but that is a personal preference. There was no direct parking in front of the property but this was not an issue as you can park less than 15 Meters down the road. Myself and partner thoroughly enjoyed our stay and there is plenty to do in and around the area itself. I would highly recommend The Wayfarer Bistro & Guest House for eating out. We look forward to booking again in the future.
Such a great stay. The cottage was great and clean and the bed so comfy. The owners couldn't have done more for us when we realised we didn't have towels.. Ralied around and bought them! The walk to robins bay is lovely, the locals super friendly and we will definitely return
The shower was also really powerful and lovely x
Thank you Loraine, Sam, sue and Robert x
My fiance and I stayed here in September for a week. Lovely wee house that is well equipped. Home from Home. If we were to come back in the future we would definitely return here. Comfy and cosy. Only slight down fall is lack of parking as it's on a wee country lane and the plug in the bath fell out every time you moved. But apart from that a lovely wee house.
We have just come back from a second stay at this lovely cottage ,set in a really nice location,lots off history, and a pub in walking distance,can't wait to be back
What a fantastic cottage.Everything and more.Always stayed at the caravan park in Fylingthorpe but this has changed our minds,Great base for all the beaches and walkable from cottage down to Robin Hoods Bay (or dragged by two eager springers).We are here for Christmas and the cottage has been tastefully decorated.Definately coming back.
After reading the reviews about the cottage I booked a long weekend. We arrived at 3:20 and yes we knew check in was 4pm but after a 5 hour drive from Scotland with our dog we just wanted to get in and settled. On arrival we were quickly followed by the cleaners who had arrived to clean the cottage. We're were politely asked to leave and return in an hour giving us a check in time of 4.25. It was pouring with rain at this point and we were in an area we didn't know but we left as requested. We arrived back at 4:10 to find the cleaners had left however we were met by the owner at the front door ad sung that the cottage was now "spotless" This couldn't have been further from the truth as my photos will show. The bathroom was the worst with the toilet and shower being particularly disgusting. I don't know if this cottage has ever been given a deep clean but I'd doubt it. I admit I had my suspicions that it would be cleaned properly given that the cleaners arrived 40 mins before check in to clean a 2 bed cottage and change 3 beds. In addition the overall condition of the furniture, the walls with missing plaster and unfinished plaster and paintwork did not give a positive first impression. I would like to add that I have e- mailed the owners twice and given them an opportunity to reply however they have not. I am not used to posting derogatory reviews however on this occasion I feel justified.
