Allow yourself to be smitten with this honey-coloured stone cottage. Idyllic Yorkshire cottage on the outside. Characterful and smart on the inside. Step inside and see for yourself…
The reputation of Robin Hood’s Bay goes before it and Hillside is your gorgeous gateway for exploring this most picturesque of Yorkshire coastal villages. Perched on the hillside of Fisherhead overlooking Robin Hood’s Bay and glorious coastline, Hillside is far from a classic country cottage. It’s hard not to adore the warm honey of the exterior stone and the crisp white door with lantern over. But step inside and a whole other world of charm will wrap you up.
Across the threshold and in you come to this most warm of welcomings. Soft carpets and silky-soft rugs draw you through the now open plan living area. The log burner will beg you to get it burning to amplify the cosy feel of the place. Exposed beams overhead nod to the cottage’s architectural heritage. A cosy snug-cum-TV room provides additional space for those evenings when a TV battle can’t be overcome. A modern archway welcomes you into a lovely dining area where you’ll find an outstanding example of how the cottage’s earliest residents might once have lived. The original range might not be where you’ll prepare tonight’s meal but it’s a fabulous feature in this otherwise contemporary styled room. By way of a small island you’re a few steps from a perfectly sized cottage kitchen where the warm honey stone colours are carried through in the tiled splashback.
The door here leads out into your pretty garden that climbs gently with the hillside. Laid to paving with mature shrubs, it’s a peaceful spot for al fresco dining and catching the early morning sniff of sea air. From the front of the house, the views of the village and the mood of the sea beyond are spellbinding.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Three delightful bedrooms are full of warmth and breaths of colour. There are two king size bedrooms with spectacular sea views - one on each of the two floors above the ground level. The second bedroom on the first floor artfully offers two single beds, a beautiful original fireplace and good storage. The family bathroom with its modern monochrome tiles provides shower over bath. A separate WC with fabulously quirky wallpaper completes the accommodation.

The property was perfect for a family holiday. It was close to the beach so great for day trips and it had everything we needed to make the stay comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with plates, cups, cutlery etc and modern fixtures. There was also plenty of things to keep the kids entertained from games to toys and puzzles plus wifi and the tv. We were really pleased with the cottage and would look to go back again in the future. Mr Andrew Shield - 6th August 2018
Lovely stay in beautiful cottage. Had everything we needed and more besides! Would highly recommend. Village was a wonderful place to discover and beach perfect for explorers of all ages.Miss Susan Lang - 9th July 2018

Great booking service as usual, staff really helpful. Holiday was amazing in the beautiful cottage, will be booking again Mrs Catherine McCormack - 13th December 2017
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cottage - what a perfect spot! We've eaten fish and chips and ice cream for almost every meal hunted for the Boggle of Boggle Hole - great cafe at the youth hostel there and spent ages rock pooling. Only wish we could have stayed longer, we will be back. Love the StuddsThe Studds
What a lovely oasis of tranquility after a long days drive! Not only is it a beautiful and well designed house with everything we could possibly need provided in such a thoughtful way. In particular as a blind person ( Annie ) I found everything in the house really intuitive and easy to negotiate and remember and thank you very much for welcoming Lennie as my essential guide dog and not a pet-he will miss his free runs on the beach every morning. Would recommend the visit to Beck Hole for the smallest pub and sweet shop (and best beer cake!) on the moors. We also enjoyed Pickering market day on the Monday. We thank the Clark family for sharing their lovely home!
Wonderful seaside holiday in a comfortable, well equipped cottage perfectly positioned to access all the delights of Robin Hoods Bay. Highly recommend the Smugglers for an evening meal - lovely romantic cosy atmosphere and top notch seafood. many thanks to Mr Henry - wonderful neighbour who gave us some fresh mackerel to barbeque. Loved the beds - very comfortable. Robin Hoods Bay - one of our favourite places. Nowhere compares it's magical
Oh my goodness, the only thing to rival our rumbling jealously for the cottage. What a perfect idyll. My 4 year old asked if we could stay for ever and ordered me to go fetch our dog. Since having our two children we have begun the tradition of a weeks stay every year and I can honestly say the house was a huge part of this years stay. I understand the cottage has been an affair of the heart for the Clark family which shines through in the feel. Pls if you find my boy hidden in a cupboard or under a bed please do send him home!
A fantastic stay in a lovely cottage in an amazing location. We've packed a lot in! Parkrun at Dalby Forest, seal watching at Ravenscar, Europe's largest mainland seabird colony at Bempton cliffs ( saw the last few puffins before they move on ), bike riding and walking on the cinder track, the water park at Scarborough, Whitby old town and Thornwick bay. Rusty shears in Whitby is a cracking place for food and gin! Really enjoyed being able to come back to the comforts of the cottage at the end of the day.
Clark family, Had a wonderful 5 night stay in this amazing house. A real home from home! This place is perfectly situated to enjoy all that Robin's Hood Bay has to offer, but equally it was lovely to stay in, cook and enjoy the garden and the wonderful views from the upstairs rooms. Thank you - we really loved our stay.Jacqui, Billy, Dave
Wonderful cottage, home from home a great place to chill out and relax. Weather was fantastic, we managed to walk 26 miles in 3 days! Would recommend the Cleveland way to Whitby and Ravenscar. We love it here and looking forward to booking a week for next year.
This is a magical place-swimming in the sea was amazing after first cold hit and top walk lovely views. Thanks for the all the little touches to help us feel at home - including the reading glasses! Love to you all Joe, Jacks and Meg
