A delightful period property situated in the very heart of the popular fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay offering sandy beaches and the picturesque Yorkshire coastline within walking distance.
Much loved by its owners, this traditional holiday cottage is tucked away in the heart of lower Robin Hood's Bay. Set over three floors with a handsome sandstone exterior and warm welcoming rooms, this period property is perfect for one or two couples who enjoy having everything on their doorstep - including the beach, a 2 minute walk away. This small 350 year old cottage has been renovated with great care to create a luxury bolthole a stone's throw from the beach.
Boasting a cosy and comfortable feel, you can step inside to find a small entrance lobby leading to a bright and charming sitting room, with light streaming in from two large period sash windows. White wood panelling and a roaring open fire complete the warm and pleasant ambience in here. For your entertainment, a TV with DVD is included. The perfect excuse to light the fire and settle down to a cosy evening in front of a movie. There's also a CD player and a good selection of books and games for some offline fun. Wi-Fi is provided too.
The cottage kitchen leads off this room. As with many properties in Robin Hood's Bay, the kitchen is small, but is well-equipped and features bespoke units and solid oak worktops. You'll find a full oven, induction hob, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, toaster, cafetière and plenty of crockery, pots and pans. Everything you need to rustle up something delicious. The dining table is set in the main living space and seats up to four people. If you need washing facilities, the property has an outhouse which has been converted into a utility housing a washer/dryer.
Both bedrooms are set upstairs - from the sitting room, open a door to discover winding cottage-style stairs leading you up to the first floor. Please note due to the nature of these old cottages, the stairs are not suitable for those with reduced mobility.
The first bedroom is set on the first floor, a charming room with a king-size cast iron bed taking pride of place. Again, you have the luxury of two large south-facing sash windows throwing in lots of light. You also have attractive views across the rooftops to the cliff top and beyond. Original built-in cupboards and a decorative fireplace add to the elegance of the room. The family bathroom is across the landing from this room. Decorated with handmade tiles, you'll find a bath with a shower overhead where you can indulge in a long hot soak after a bracing walk along the coast.
A door from the landing leads you up to the top floor via a second set of winding cottage-style stairs. Here you'll find the second bedroom set in the attic of the house. There is an abundance of character in here with low beams and stunning views to the beach, moors and village. This room has a double bed dressed in the finest Egyptian cotton bed linen. It also has a very handy en-suite WC.
One of the loveliest things about the cottage is the fact it has its own private outdoor space, something of a rarity in Robin Hood's Bay. This quiet and sheltered patio is west-facing and offers great views down into the village. Patio furniture is provided for you so you can settle down to a peaceful al fresco lunch. Typical of the higgledy-piggledy nature of the village, the patio (along with several outhouses belonging to the cottage) is located 10 metres from the front door along a private path. The cottage also has the luxury of a parking permit for the private car park in the lower bay. Another huge plus for a property in the village, particularly in the busy summer months.
Please note, this property is unable to accept children under five years old.
