An attractive, traditional, 1880s mid-terraced cottage set just off the main street in the village of Hinderwell, 9 miles north of Whitby, North Yorkshire. This former railway worker’s cottage is well-maintained and comfortably furnished. The property is ideal for couples and friends wishing to enjoy the beautiful mix of moorland and coast, in this picturesque part of the country. Downstairs, there is a welcoming open plan living space with a cosy multi-fuel burner, kitchen area and a small dining area. The kitchen has access to a small rear courtyard with garden furniture, while at the front of the cottage, there is an enclosed lawned garden which is great for sitting and relaxing and enjoying watching the world go by. The picturesque fishing village of Runswick Bay is just 1 mile away with its sandy cove and relaxed, laid back ambience. Take a bracing cliff-top walk on the Cleveland Way with superb coastal views, or explore the nearby seaside town of Whitby, steeped in history, with its narrow, cobbled streets, interesting shops and famous abbey.
Ideal for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits, with an abundance of footpaths, cycle routes and cliff walks in the immediate area, including the famous 110-mile Cleveland Way. You can walk along the cliff tops enjoying the stunning scenery to the quaint fishing villages of Staithes, Runswick Bay and Sandsend and then on to the bustling fishing port of Whitby. Whitby itself is an excellent day out, where you will find plenty to do, with an abundance of attractions to suit all ages, along with an excellent selection of shops and cafés in both the new and old towns. Whitby plays host too many events and festivals all year round including Goth weekenders, a regatta and a Folk Music Festival among the favourites. From Whitby a ride on the steam train is not to be missed, and from which you can view the dramatic scenery of the North York Moors en-route through the quaint little villages of Grosmont, Goathland (alias Aidensfield in the TV series ‘Heartbeat’) and Levisham to its final destination of Pickering. The beautiful Victorian resort of Saltburn-by-the-Sea is only 8 miles away with its own cliff lift dating back to 1884, and its famous pier which is the most northerly surviving British pier, and Smugglers Heritage Centre not far from the lovely promenade, is perfect for a leisurely stroll on a fine evening. The traditional seaside town of Scarborough is just 40 minutes away, and the medieval walled city of York with is many great attractions such as the Jorvik Viking Centre and the National Railway museum is within easy reach. Beach 1 mile. Shop 1½ miles, pub 250 yards and restaurant 300 yards...

    Delightful and charming *small* cottage :-) Great accommodation for the two of us. Limited fridge capacity, but otherwise cooking/kitchen facilities all OK. Lack of WiFi was a disappointment, but no real big deal. The TV is very elderly (can't remember when I last heard the term "Nicam"!!)... remote control was tricky to operate, sound quality was not good, but again, not a major problem. Location: 10 miles south to Whitby, similar distance north to Saltburn/Marske. And in between, beautiful places like Staithes, Runswick Bay, Iron Stone mining museum, etc. Beyond Whitby (and its Abbey ruins, complete with Dracula stories) is Robin Hood's Bay and Scarborough (with Castle ruins dating back to Roman times). In land is the North Yorkshire moors national park. The nearest pub (Brown Cow, 100 yds-ish) most excellent, very friendly welcome, fab ales, and I've never been served such an enormous Gammon Steak (one of the local - and again very friendly - dogs helped me out with that one!) Village chippy serves freshly cooked-to-order food; Again, 100 yds away and very friendly. Best of all though - everyone we met was very friendly, welcoming, and good-natured... be prepared for long conversations with complete strangers!

    We had a problem getting the electric on, the instructions were not clear, we had to ring the office for help, however they did send a maintenance man quite quickly who eventually managed to work it out. Due to the electric being off the ice box in the fridge had defrosted causing a large amount of water in the drip tray, this meant everything we had put in the fridge got soaked. We feel some of the information in the instructions book needs updating. Back yard needs work, weeds etc.

    Lovely cottage in very quiet area. Thought it was expensive considering no wifi or washing machine and no mobile network.

    I find doing a review of this cottage very difficult. In many ways it was clean, comfortable and relaxing and it is in one of our favourite areas. However, in some ways, there is room for improvement. For example, the stairs are narrow with very low headroom (I banged my head at least a dozen times). But that wasn't the biggest problem. We were awoken in the early hours by a loud warning from one of the fire/CO alarms, with a recorded message telling us repeatedly that the battery needed replacing. I found it impossible to access the battery compartment anyway, despite standing on a chair at the top of the stairs. We didn't sleep much that night. Next morning I rang the local agents, Yorkshire Cottages, to express my concern. Although they sent a handyman round to sort it out, they didn't seem at all concerned that there is no procedure in place for replacing batteries in the alarms of their cottages (manufacturers usually recommend every 12 months). I wrote to Yorkshire Cottages afterwards about it and they didn't reply or even acknowledge my letter. We won't be using Yorkshire Cottages again.

    Me and my son 18yrs had a really lovely time, there on holiday, the only 2 things, that could have made it, even better, would to, have provided WiFi, instead of us, having to use my data up, I would advise, that you bring slippers to wear as it can be a bit chilly downstairs in the evenings, even with the the heating on. the floor is stone tiled. Up stairs was lovely and warm. the cottage is lovely and clean, beds are so comfy. I slept really well. I have no real hesitation of recommending this cottage to stay in, its not big, but we only really needed it for somewhere to sleep and eat, while exploring parts of Yorkshire.
