About Apple Farm Cottage

A cottage every little bit as gorgeous as it sounds, Apple Farm Cottage is an original 17th Century Farmhouse which has been transformed into a beautiful 3-bedroom holiday home. Set in an elevated position on the Yorkshire Coast with the delights of Robin Hoods Bay just a short walk away the location is idyllic too! And just wait until you discover the garden with its views down to the sea...

A real home from home, Apple Farm Cottage is the sort of seaside holiday home you dream of owning yourself one day. Fully equipped with everything you could need, it ticks all the boxes in terms of chocolate box kerb appeal, contemporary interiors and period charm. Step inside the honey-coloured sandstone exterior to find a bright and spacious home with plenty of room for the whole family.

Downstairs you'll find an entrance hall leading to a large open plan living / dining area. With warm solid oak flooring underfoot, soft rugs and a wood-burner to keep you toasty, cosy evenings in are guaranteed. For your entertainment there's an LCD TV with You View and DVD Player, and Wi-Fi is provided too. There's also a selection of games and books if you prefer to be off-line for a while! The pretty dining table seats up to 6 people comfortably and is the perfect spot for lively family breakfasts and intimate candlelit dinners over a few bottles of wine.

The stylish kitchen is next door, discover granite work-tops and contemporary kitchen units housing a range of top quality BOSCH appliances including a larder fridge, double oven and dishwasher. There's also a microwave and Nespresso coffee maker to get you going in the morning. Lovely views from the kitchen lead the eye out across the garden and down to the coast. There's a little breakfast bar and stools by the window just perfect for settling down with your morning coffee.

Making your way back through the living room to the hallway, you'll find one bedroom and the family shower room also on ground level. The sweet bedroom is perfect for children with its full size bunk beds and cosy feel. The shower room includes a large walk-in shower and WC, handy for those with reduced mobility and if you're coming in from a bracing walk along the beach.

The remaining two bedrooms are upstairs, both boasting stunning views and en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom is at the end of the landing, a bright contemporary room filled with light from the large floor to ceiling window. There's a king size bed to jump into. The en suite in this room features a stunning free standing bath for those long hot holiday soaks and a WC. The second bedroom has a similar elegant style with a vintage chic double bed and gorgeous views. The en suite in this room has a walk-in shower as well as a WC.

With so much to love about the interiors of this luxury Yorkshire Coastal Cottage it's a thrill to find the garden so delightful too. Spacious and private with no-one overlooking you, there's a patio area to dine alfresco in the summer months (furniture provided) and a lawned area to lounge about on in those balmy seaside afternoons. Enjoy wonderful views down towards Robin Hoods Bay and all along the coast. If you have children in your party they'll love discovering the play area with its trampoline and swings.

And adults will love the fact there's off road private parking spaces for two cars, through the big wooden gate. Please ensure no more than two cars are parked here, any other vehicles please park in the public car park, which is only five minutes away. A big bonus is also the indoor bicycle storage within the Laundry Room!

Local Area

Apple Farm Cottage's location is fantastic. Set in an elevated position above Robin Hoods Bay the cottage enjoys uninterrupted views of the stunning Yorkshire Coastline. Walking / cycling enthusiasts will love the fact that the famous cinder trail runs along right beside the cottage  ( named after the original surface laid down for the railway line ) You can walk right along the coast from Whitby to Scarborough, a wonderful way to while away a few hours, even if you just do a few miles!

Robin Hood's Bay is one of the most popular coastal locations in Yorkshire, or the UK for that matter.  Once home to the busiest smuggling trade on the Yorkshire coast, said to involve fisherman, clergy and gentry alike, today the village has adopted a much more sedate pace of life.  The village is a maze of cobbled streets and higgledy piggledy houses which seem to tumble down towards the sea.  Walkers can delight in the fact that Wainwright's famous Coast to Coast walk starts (or finishes depending which way you look at it) just a few yards from the door. And the Bay itself is just one of the charming locations on the coast.

For dinner head down to the very romantic Bramblewick Bistro, or the nautically themed Smugglers Inn opposite. Both have a lovely atmosphere particularly at night when you can bunker down for a candlelit dinner over a bottle of wine or two. There are also several good pubs in the village with pub grub. If you want to dine in take advantage of the well-stocked local stores there, including an excellent fish mongers selling the freshest locally caught crab. The kids will love the traditional sweet shops and there are several really lovely little boutiques selling all manner of delightful things.

As hard as it will be to drag yourself away from Robin Hoods Bay, you really ought to explore the rest of the coast. Much like its Cornish counterpart, the Yorkshire coastline is a heady mix of rugged cliff tops, peaceful bays and pretty fishing villages. With long sandy beaches and all the traditional seaside trimmings of yesteryear, this is proper bucket 'n spade territory. That's not to say it's stuck in the past, in fact the coast's villages and towns combine the traditional with the contemporary effortlessly, with trinket shops and tea rooms sitting alongside upmarket champagne and oyster bars.

This region is best known for the gorgeously gothic town of Whitby. Playing host at one time to Romans, Saxons, Celts and Danes amongst others, the town's rich heritage is immediately obvious. Straddling the river Esk and dominated by the 13th Century ruins of St Hilda's Abbey on the East Cliff, Whitby's crooked cobbled streets and picturesque harbour have been a magnet for artists and tourists alike for centuries. Providing the backdrop for some of Lewis Carroll's work, it was also famously the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula. For a real sense of the town's atmospheric ambience, climb the 199 Abbey steps at dusk and wander around St. Mary's churchyard on the headland... You can further indulge a desire for the macabre on one of the regular ghost walks from Whale Bone Arch on West Cliff. 

Although you could happily spend the weekend mooching about the independent shops, bars and cafes along Whitby's bustling medieval streets, it's well worth striking out to sample some of the other less known coastal villages nearby.

Sandsend, Staithes and Runswick Bay are all within easy driving distance, and each have their own unique charm.

Wimborne GB Family
We loved it here, my only reservation is that the shower room upstairs is very cramped and the access to it is very awkward particularly for my sprightly but 84 year old father, who was with us for two nights, as there is no shower in the master en suite he and my husband had to share the downstairs shower room with our other guest. Both men are 6ft or more, but not unusually large, so it must be difficult for other visitors and not exactly a luxurious experience. If we returned it would only be as a couple.

We had a lovely holiday in this beautiful cottage Could not fault it The only reason we would not stay again is because we did most of the things we wished to do in the area
Because we are elderly, we found the climb up from a Robin Hood Bay to be quite strenuous so would not probably return to that particular location
We would thoroughly recommend the cottage
