Important COVID-19 Information

In the absence of clear government guidelines for small businesses like ours please be assured that we are taking strong common sense actions to minimise the risks of cross contamination from one set of customers to the next. Between lets the cottage will be given as deep a clean as possible, focussing on those hard surfaces where the science has shown Covid-19 is most likely to linger. We have also provided additional cleaning materials for those of you who want to do your own additional cleanse.

Robin Hood's Bay
Robin Hood's Bay is within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, the village dates back to the days of smugglers and fishing folk, its cobbled streets and pretty painted cottages nestle into the cliffs surrounded by some of the most beautiful coastline in the country.
The beach, of sand and rocks, has been regularly awarded the ENCAMS Seaside Award and will be flying the distinctive blue and yellow flag if appropriate.
The bay is one of the most appealing unspoilt villages on the East Coast. With excellent scenic coastal walks and cycle rides, The Coast to Coast walk finishes at the slipway at the Bay.
The village has several friendly shops, fish and chip shop, cafes, pubs (most serve meals and real ale) and Bistro which help make it an all year round pleasure.
The fishing town of Whitby is a short drive away where there is a supermarket, shopping, a famous abbey, church, piers and many eateries including the Magpie Café (Fish Restaurant).
Whitby is dominated by the cliff-top ruins of the beautiful
13th century Whitby Abbey.
