Robin Hoods Bay, a quaint little fishing village, is located just over half a mile from the cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A wonderful welcome at Alpha Cottage and a lovely place to stay. The house was well-equipped and very comfortable, with everything we needed and some lovely additional touches, such as some of the local beer. The house is in a quiet village, and close to a small shop, a butchers and a pub and only 15-20 minutes walk from Robin Hood's Bay. A thoroughly enjoyable experience - thank you!

Great Christmas stay at Alpha Cottage

  • 5 of 5

In a quiet location, lovely cottage, well presented, nice touches were the welcome pack on arrival. Despite being a small kitchen every piece of equipment is available. Even a lovely tree and decorations. We would recommend to our family and friends, thank you for a very enjoyable stay.

sehr gut ausgestattetes, liebevoll eingerichtetes Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren von diesem sehr schönen, gemütlichen, sehr sauberen und perfekt ausgestatteten Cottage begeistert! Das bezaubernde Dachzimmer war gar nicht so niedrig wie wir dachten und hat einen traumhaften Blick. Die Vermieter waren sehr hilfsbereit und gut zu erreichen. Robin Hood`s Bay ist zudem ein bemerkenswert schöner Ort mit vielen Ausflugsmöglichkeiten. Das Meer ist fußläufig zu erreichen, noch näher ist ein kleiner Laden und ein gemütlicher Inn. Wir können dieses Ferienhaus und Umgebung für vier Personen wärmstens empfehlen und freuen uns schon jetzt, dort einmal wieder vorbei zu kommen!
