About Albion Hall

Albion Hall is an exceptional 4 bedroom holiday home set right in the heart of Lower Robin Hood’s Bay. Tucked away down a quiet street just a stone’s throw from the beach and shops, this stunning large luxury cottage sleeps up to 10 people and is the perfect choice for families looking to chill by the seaside without having to jump in the car. Generous bedrooms and lots of bathrooms ensure everyone has their own space too…

First of all, another special mention has to go to the location of Albion Hall. This beautiful converted church hall is just a hop, skip and a jump from the very bottom of the Bay, just around the corner from the fantastic cafés, bistros and shops in this part of the Bay.

Make your way up past Smugglers Inn and you will see the handsome building sitting at the end of this alley in a quiet and peaceful spot. The shinning silver AH on the wall giving a clue to something very special inside. Step inside and find a hugely impressive open plan living space containing the living room, dining area and kitchen. This luxury of space is almost unheard of in Robin Hood’s Bay which is what makes it such a great choice for families.

In the living room you’ll find a giant Flat Screen TV & Home Cinema System, perfect for those nights when you just want to curl up with a good movie. The large comfy sofas are the perfect place to lounge about and chill after a day out on the beach. There is also Wi-Fi provided and a digital radio that includes a docking station here too.

The dining area is bathed in light from 3 sky-lights above and will seat at least 10 people very comfortably. Picture yourself and all your loved ones gathered around this table settling down to some delicious fish and chips... The kitchen is rather fabulous too, with its large kitchen island and double fridge freezer. It’s also been very well stocked with everything you could possible need for cooking up a large family dinner.

Albion Hall boasts 4 very good sized bedrooms, all of which come complete with Flat Screen TVs and Super-king sized beds. The bedroom on ground level is a bright and cheerful room which comes complete with a vanity unit and large skylight.

Up the wooden stairs to the second bedroom, another bright and airy room with heaps of light from the skylight above. The third bedroom is what we call the family room with its fun bunk beds either side of the main bed. It’s ideal if you want to put the kids in together of if parents want to share with their little ones. The super-king sized bed can be unzipped if four single beds are required. The master bedroom is just along the hall and again boasts an en suite bathroom with a bath and shower overhead. It also has a Blu-Ray DVD player for those days when you just want to lounge about in your PJs watching a film…

In addition to the en suites there is a stunning family bathroom. It is adjacent to the third bedroom and features a gorgeous free-standing bath and separate walk-in jet shower. So no need to queue for the bathroom every morning!

Outside this beautiful property there is a small patio which leads onto the alleyway down to the beach. You can be walking with the sand between your toes within seconds…

In addition to the main house there is a self contained suite with its own entrance door, again with a super-king sized bed. It is a large room towards the front of the property that has a leather settee and dining area for two. There is an en suite shower room and also a clever micro kitchen complete with fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster.

This additional accommodation can sometimes be made available by arrangement at an additional cost.

Local Area

As we may have mentioned once or twice, Albion Hall’s location is fantastic. Set down a charming little street which leads down to the sea in Robin Hood’s Bay, you are just a few minutes’ walk from the beach and the Bay’s many cafes and shops.

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.

Brilliant weekend for my sisters hen party. Lovely cottage. My only negative comment is 10.00am vacation is far too early especially all the money you pay for your accommodation.
