Property code: OC-R020

Beautifully furnished to enhance original features including beamed ceilings, wooden floors and panelling, this delightful cottage sleeps five and has seating in a shared outside space. The beach and original fishing village, with its warren of cobbled streets, shops, restaurants and bars are just 300 metres away. Hunt for fossils, often found on the expanse of sand and rock pools and discover more about this fascinating stretch of coast at the National Trust visitor centre on the quayside. Learn a little of the history of the village, once known for its fishing and clandestine smuggling at the Robin Hood’s Bay Museum. Visit Old St Stephen’s Church for exhibitions and concerts in an interior untouched for 200 years and check the North York Moors National Park mobile unit for details of walks and other events in this unspoiled landscape just 10 miles away.

Ceiling beams and a stripped wooden floor are among the original features of the charming living/dining room, furnished with comfortable seating and an open fire. A compact kitchen leads off a pretty dining area with round table and chairs. Beamed ceilings, period fireplaces and panelled walls in three delightful bedrooms are further reminders of the cottage’s history. The first floor has two bedrooms, one double and one single, and a bathroom with a power shower and WC. On the second floor, a twin bedroom with a TV and pretty period bedsteads has splendid sea views across the rooftops. Beams on this ceiling are made from a mast and other ship’s timbers.

A bench to the front of the cottage overlooks a garden area with BBQ, shared with neighbours. The kitchen has three steep steps up from the dining area and three up to the back door.

We found everything from the booking experience to the stay wonderful. Booking online was easy and when we wanted to add extra days, I found speaking with employees over the phone both helpful and enjoyable - they were lovely people. The cottage itself was beautiful and well kept. All instructions on checking in and out were clear and concise.

Peters House is a lovely property, in an ideal location on the quieter side of the old village. The house was very clean and generously equipped - we had everything we needed for our family of five, and felt very welcome during our stay. I would definitely recommend this house and would hope to stay there again in future.

We had a fabulous break at the cottage. Perfect location, cosy and warm and lovely attention to detail. Just felt the oven which we had an issue with made me score 3 but I must say the owner did all he could to solve the problem!

We had a very relaxing week in a fabulous location. The cottage was right in the centre of Robin hoods bay and was well equipped for cooking and was very warm and cosy. The bed was comfortable but the living room sofas unfortunately were not at all. They were hard and cold to sit on and no throws were provided; thankfully we brought our own. As weRead more were both recovering from an illness we didn't stay out too late in the evenings and were disappointed to have no smart TV. Despite the two negative points we did thoroughly enjoy our stay. Hide
