About Catherine and Stuart
Ours is a family cottage that we use ourselves. We have always holidayed on the North Yorkshire coast due to family connections, and because we love being in the countryside and we love walking. We both work and cannot use the cottage as much as we would like. Friends always enjoy staying with us, so we thought it would be good to share the cottage with others. It is because of our work that we ask for first contact to be by email or text. We can then get back to you during the evening.
Why Catherine and Stuart chose Hinderwell
This cottage has plenty of history, and in renovating, we have been able to leave many ancient features which you can look out for. In the attic, there is wattle and daub on some walls beneath the limewash, complemented by new lime plaster in other places. We have left the outline of ancient doorways, the bannister and the old panelled doors. The first and ground floors are mid-Victorian, when the kitchen ceiling was raised(!) The staircase still has panelling from this renovation. Our renovation added modern comforts and hygiene, whilst still showing off the history. You may use the ham and bacon hooks in the hall, but you might choose to use the fridge. The early 20th Century Yorkist Range was in use until recently. The central heating, modern cooker and leaky chimney make this a visual feature only.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage looks small and cosy, so couples fit in and feel at home - but with 3 stories, it really does sleep 7 with comfort. The cottage is ancient, and has been altered several times throughout its history. We have sought to maintain its historic feel through the use of vintage and traditional furniture and fittings, complemented by new and modern where appropriate. Beware the low ceilings in places, and several low doorways that can be painful to the unwary. We love arts and crafts, and there are a number of original artworks (by family members )in the cottage to add to the look and feel, creating the right atmosphere for your holiday.

Stunning cottage ideal for families and groups
We have just stayed in this lovely cottage for the weekend. It was perfect for our family group. The boys absolutely loved the attic room, it was their little haven! Kitchen very well equipped with everything we needed and it was lovely and cosy.
We walked to Staithes along the Cleveland Way and also to Runswick Bay going the other way. About a mile and a half each way. Cleveland Way is literally a 5 minute walk from the cottage. Our springer spaniel loved it too!
I will definitely be recommending this cottage to friends and family and we will definitely return.
Thanks to Catherine and Stuart too for the lovely biscuits which were waiting for us when we arrived!
