Description

Fisherman’s cottage in the heart of Robin Hood’s Bay, bolt hole for 2 with open fire, yards from the beach.

Fisherman’s cottage in the heart of Robin Hood’s Bay, bolt hole for 2 with open fire, yards from the beach.
Conveniently situated in the village’s old picturesque ‘Baytown’, this delightful little Grade II listed fisherman’s cottage provides a second floor sea view and comfortable, well-equipped and well-presented accommodation. Full of charm and character, it retains its Victorian spiral staircase and fireplaces, and has old oak beams throughout. The Chantry has long been a place of sanctuary and replenishment for locals and travellers alike and continues to serve as a bolt hole for respite and adventure. It has car access for (un)loading, and is a great base for exploring this stunning region. The village is on the East Jurassic Coastline, a must for fossil hunters! The countryside offers breathtaking views and the Coast to Coast walk ends here, passing through the Cleveland Way. Shops, pubs and restaurants 100 yards. This property accommodates a maximum of 2 guests.

    A charming fisherman's cottage in the heart of old Robin Hood's Bay. It's small but perfectly formed and full of everything you could need for a lovely week away. Close to local amenities, cosy pubs, and windy walks along the beach. Plenty to do in the local area and plenty of information both in the cottage and sent by the owner prior to our visit. Excellent value for money for a winter stay.

    The location of St Robert's Chantry is excellent - only a short distance from the beach and on a narrow no-through road. The only sounds you are likely to hear are footfall on the cobbles and waves in the bay. The Chantry is an unspoiled fisherman's cottage, compact but well equipped. An, 'away from it all', retreat.

    St Roberts Chantry was charming and compact. It had everything the two of us needed for our week away ... including local information in the form of leaflets, DVDs and books on every available surface, making the space feel smaller than it actually was - though it is very small! and cute with it!

    The fact we left 3 days early shows this house has issues. Yes, it is very small, but this is not the problem. It is so cluttered with totally unnecessary things and poorly thought out equipment making the tiny rooms hard to use. These comments have been raised before but the owner has failed to address them. We went away for a complete rest in a lovely village surrounded by spectacular scenery. If the house was fit for purpose we would have had a fantastic break away. However coming back to sit down and relax was impossible. The 2 chairs in the sitting area are so uncomfortable we had to resort to going to sit on the bed in the evenings. The layout is a complete waste of available space. 3 floors and 2 of them bedrooms-why? It only accommodates 2 people. The obvious has been raised here before. Downstairs kitchen and dining, albeit with a sensible table and chairs that do not take over the whole room. 1st floor sitting room with proper comfortable seating. Top floor bedroom. Then the icing on the cake is the " wet room ". Dirty, stained and awful to use. No hot water to sink. Very noisy cistern wakes you up if flushed during night. Note to owner. Read what people say and ACT on comments. We all want a comfortable holiday. Completely empty all cupboards of rubbish and the masses of never used items by short stay users. Update dark decor from the 1970's. Then the lovely potential of this house will be realised. MUST use a professional designer to do the appraisal or it will not be done properly. Then it would get 5 star ratings and attract higher rentals.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner: I was disappointed to read your review following your recent stay at St. Robert's Chantry. I take great pride in looking after my customers. The Cottage is located in Old Robin Hood’s Bay, which is famous for its heritage, architecture and picturesque coastal views. Many properties in this area are old Fisherman’s Cottages, which are known for being quite small, although I utilise the space available and fit furniture in each room accordingly. The photographs on the website are current and accurately represent the facilities and décor of the Cottage. The Cottage is annually graded by the Agency who have awarded the property two stars. Part of the process is to ensure that the furnishings and facilities meet that grading. Guests have previously commented how well equipped the Cottage is and I regret that you felt this was not the case. Unfortunately, St. Robert’s Chantry was not the holiday home for you and I would like to recommend researching future holiday properties and destinations prior to confirming a booking so as to avoid any disappointment. I am very sorry that you missed out on what could have been a wonderful stay for you both.

    We were very disappointed with the cottage St Robert's Chantry. The fixtures and fittings were "well used" and it is need of a major refurbishment as it was not very comfortable at all. The worst problem was that fact that it was not very clean. The wet room was very old and quite dirty so I had to clean it the best I could with bleach before I felt I was able to use it. Similarly this was the case in the kitchen and the double mattress looked awful. I understand that the owner of the property uses cleaning company to clean the cottage, well if this is the case, they are not doing their job as it was grubby throughout. Although the cost was fairly reasonable for a week, and I know that this is not a lot of money, but I expect basic cleanliness and comfort for that kind of money. I am in the process of complaining about the property separately to this comment. The location was ideal and Robin Hoods Bay is beautiful. We had a lovely holiday but the cottage was very disappointing.

    Response on behalf of the Owner: I was very surprised and very disappointed to learn after your stay that the Cottage was not presented to the usual, high standard. As soon as I was informed of your complaint I investigated the cleaning issues immediately with the cleaning team to ensure that the cleanliness was returned to the normal high level. Just a few moments’ walk from the beach, this old Fisherman’s Cottage for two is ideal for couples or friends wanting to enjoy the beautiful coastline and countryside that Yorkshire has to offer. Many previous guests have described the Cottage as cosy, quaint and well equipped – few guests have complained about the fixtures and fittings but I will take the comments on board and remedy them where necessary. It’s such a shame that you didn’t contact me during your stay as I could have easily had the issues that you have mentioned remedied very quickly. I am pleased that you found so much to enjoy in Robin Hood’s Bay but I only wish that you had contacted me during your stay so that I could have made it perfect!
