Ranked #26 of 29 Robin Hoods Bay B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 4, 2011

We had always wanted to visit Robin Hood's Bay and found The White Owl on the internet - and what a find! Ideally situated B&B with good parking facilities and a very friendly host (thanks Ann). Wonderful views from the room down to the sea, the 'village' and beyond. Delicious breakfasts brought to you on a tray for you to enjoy in the comfort or your own room. Lovely front garden where we sat with our coffee playing Scrabble as the sun set. Three perfect days and even our dog was made welcome. We shall return!

Me and my family , myself , the wife and two boys have stayed at the white Owl every August for our weeks summer break since 2009 , also we stay there when myself and the wife have our own little break together in May each year , and we can fully recommend the place ,Anne is friendly and a great host and always willing to accomodate any need you require, The White Owl is situated at the top of the Hill and has its own parking bays for guests,which is a must and saves the trouble trying to gain a space in the car park everytime you go out on a day out that requires car travel, which we found a tiresome task when we stayed in a cottage further down the hill,and also the White Owl has a very cosy self contained apartments which is ideal for a couple , or if you have a family , the lardger apartment is ideal ,The local tennis courts kept the kids amused late in the summer evening , which we deposit a goodwill donation at the end of the weeks stay ,, Altogether if you have a family or just a couple wanting to stay for a long weekend or a week , Stay at the White Owl and experience a great break like we have and always will do for yrs to come

We have stayed at The White Owl for the last 3 years and find it by far the best value for money in the bay. The Apartment is very comfortable, clean and has everything you could need inside, including lots of brochures and ideas of where to visit while you are there. Mrs Higgins is a very friendly and helpful host and nothing is ever too much trouble for her. There is also a parking space provided which is essential if you are staying in the bay. We will certainly be back again next year.

Room Tip: Bay View Apartments have large bedrooms and lovely views

The White Owl in the beautiful Coastal town of Robin Hood's Bay was recommended to me by a family member who has been visiting for many years.

I chose to stay bed and breakfast - the room was clean and tidy and was reminicent of a smugglers hide away in keeping with the atmosphere of the bay.

The beautiful garden at the front of the White Owl with a view of the bay made for an excellent venue for sitting out and watching the sun go down. Anne keeps a supply of warm fleeces in the front porch which she is happy for you to borrow when the wind gets up and you're only in short sleeves.

I had a vegetarian breakfast which was delicious.

Anne and David are the perfect hosts and I am sure that I will be visiting them again.

We have just returned from a stay in the White Owl Bay View Apartment. We had a lovely week in an apartment which offered everything you could possibly need for a self-catering holiday. It was clean and comfortable with bed linen & towels provided. The friendly owner was always on hand to offer help and advice - nothing was too much trouble. We particularly enjoyed the freedom the accommodation gave us, to wander in the glorious, immaculately kept garden on the front of the property - it was a joy. We spent many hours sitting looking at the views of the bay & the countryside from there. A definite bonus!!
We will certainly be back next year.

Really enjoyed our one night stay here last weekend. Ann is a great hostess. The location could not be better, well located just above the village itself and on the main road with free parking at the back. The idea that it is a B & B with the self catering facility makes it more private and gives one a sense of space. Will def be back

The Owl offers the best of the two aspects of Robin Hoods Bay. It is right at the top of the "bank" on the flat but only a few strides away from the charms of the old village. A great boon is the fact that it offers parking facilities - a rarity in the village. All amenities are within a very short stroll and it is comfortable and peaceful at night.
