Lenwood – the perfect dog-friendly cottage in Robin Hoods Bay

Lenwood is a dog-friendly holiday cottage on the Yorkshire Coast

When Lenwood owners Steve and Alistair were looking to purchase their first holiday cottage, there was only one destination they had in mind – Robin Hoods Bay! They live in nearby Ravenscar and love the fact there is so much to do both in and around Robin Hoods Bay. With a lovely beach and lots of cafes, shops and restaurants, it is the perfect spot for a short break or holiday on the Yorkshire Coast.

The gorgeous beach at Robin Hoods Bay

We couldn’t agree more and here are some of the things we love about the resulting holiday cottage Lenwood – a dog friendly holiday cottage in Robin Hoods Bay!

Dogs Welcome

Dog-friendly Lenwood in Robin Hoods Bay

Robin Hoods Bay is a very dog-friendly place – in fact there aren’t many places in this seaside village they aren’t allowed. It was important to Stephen and Alistair that Lenwood is as dog-friendly as possible and it was road tested by their own dogs – a whippet and a whippet / Bedlington Terrier cross.

Paw prints from a walk on the beach can be easily wiped off wooden floors and there is a box for dogs with throws, blankets and other things they may need. There are plenty of dog-friendly pubs and cafes in Robin Hoods Bay so you won’t be short of places to take your pooch.

About 50% of guests come with dogs – the easy clean floors and throws means there’s no trace of four-legged friends after the stay.

A characterful cottage

Traditional holiday cottage in Robin Hoods Bay

Lenwood is a traditional 3-storey sandstone cottage and while the property was renovated from top to bottom there is plenty of character in this coastal cottage. I think the interiors are cheerful and bright – exactly what you want from a beach retreat.

The lovely house bathroom with its claw foot free-standing bath.

Original floor tiles in the living rooms, a cosy wood-burner, hand-made brick tiles in the kitchen, a claw top bath and Georgian sash windows are amongst the thoughtful touches that add to the character and charm of this holiday cottage in Robin Hoods Bay.

Plenty of space

The quirky nature of traditional cottages in Robin Hoods Bay is all part of the charm. This can mean that space can be very limited, particularly when it comes to kitchens.

Chic, bright and cheerful this room instantly puts a smile on your face.

Not so at Lenwood – the kitchen is a lovely bright room (which even includes a small table and chairs) which has everything you need to whip up a delicious meal.

Love the Georgian sash windows in this room too.

There are two double bedrooms so Lenwood can comfortably sleep up to 4 people and there is even an additional day-bed in the top-floor bedroom so it can sleep an additional child if needed.

The charming second bedroom.

Stephen’s favourite room (and I have to agree) is this gorgeous double bedroom on the top floor. The blues and whites are perfect for the seaside and the window from this airy room has views down to the sea. Beautiful!

The views across the roof tops to the sea are just stunning.

Tucked away (with outside space)

Lenwood is tucked away off one of the main streets in Robin Hoods Bay so can have some privacy while still being close to the hustle and bustle.

There’s lots of shops and cafes to explore in the surrounding streets and you can call in at Muir Lea Stores for a bucket and spade on your way to the beach.

Or perhaps an afternoon G & T while you discuss your plans for that evening.

Outside space is at a bit of a premium in Robin Hoods Bay (in fact it’s like gold dust) so it’s especially nice that Lenwood has its own private courtyard with patio furniture where you can sit out and make the most of your spot.

The best of Robin Hoods Bay

Enjoy the sunrise at Robin Hoods Bay on the North York Moors Coastline!

There’s a reason why Robin Hoods Bay is such a popular holiday destination – it combines quaint village charm, fabulous beaches with lots of places to eat and drink.

Cafes worth visiting include Tea, Toast and Post which is dog-friendly and located in the former office. There’s a selection of teas to try on the menu and lots of nice sandwiches (may favourite is always a fish finger sandwich in thick white bread). It’s worth having a wander round though and trying somewhere new each day.

Enjoy a walk on the beach at Robin Hoods Bay

The dog-friendly beach is gorgeous at any time of year (even in winter) and if you head to nearby Ravenscar you may even spot some seals as there are colonies on the beach (make sure you follow advice though and don’t get too close to them).

The Cinder Track is a popular walk from Robin Hoods Bay to Whitby – it follows the path of a disused rail track and there are stunning views from the viaduct over the Esk Valley.

Breathe in that life-enhancing sea air!

Lenwood is a dog-friendly holiday cottage for four and is available to book through Gorgeous Cottages. Find out more.
