“Charming cottage, but mind your head upstairs!”
Reviewed 17 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We ended up being poorly on our break in the cottage, so that was unfortunate and meant we didn't really enjoy the break. However, that aside, the cottage is lovely and is 2mins from the beach, so close you can hear the waves at night! The cottage was very, very cold, especially at night, the weather was cold though so this may explain it.
You must be a fan of hills and steps to stay in the cottage, and at RHB, the cottage is half way up a very steep hill, in a maze of similar cottages. This does make for a slight challenge to find the property, make sure you have the strength to lug your luggage from the car up or down a number of steep steps!!
We would've liked to know that there was bedding at the cottage, in amenities it just states 'linens'... There are also a number of condiments, herbs and spices in cupboards :)

Thank you for taking the time to review . I am sorry about the cold, the cottage normally heats up and holds its heat well so I am surprised but will note getting the heat on earlier and I will amend the listing if it is not clear that everything is provided. The nature of Robin Hoods Bay means that all the cottages are set into the steep hillside amongst a maze of steps and alleys. This is what gives it its unique charm. Coach House Cottage is set just off and above the main road so certainly not as hard to find as some but again I will look at the directions I send out and see if I can make it clearer.

My husband and I stayed here in the Easter holidays with our two young children 7&3. The cottage is located very very near to the bay and the sea and the small choice of shops and pubs. The cottage had everything you could need (except a microwave!) and was nicely presented. The kitchen was a lovely size and the wood burner and open fire great for cosy nights in.
The views were not great out of the windows (the run down back side of The Dolphin Pub) but if you stretch your neck you can see the sea from the front nearer bedroom window.
No outside space with the cottage so indoors only if you are not out and about in the little streets.
The bedrooms were a good size, and the bathroom sizeable enough however a bad scum line around the bath (a small slipper bath, I'm only 5'7 and my legs were hung over the end!) so the cleaner needs to be more thorough.
The bedrooms are in the loft space and the main bedroom has a door into a cupboard containing the water tank which was very noisy. The windows in the bedrooms and most of the cottage look like the originals and are pretty useless giving a noisy cold wet draft and therefore in the bedrooms wet windows and mouldy curtains ...but the rooms were warm with all of the heating on.
The mattresses on the single beds looked very old and were crumpled and saggy, and the pillows old and yellowed.
The hot water was odd, as there was a boost button in the kitchen and the wood burner in the kitchen has a back boiler but it was not very clear., however on our first night we didn't have hot water. Not good with little,children.
There isn't any central heating in the cottage so the main heat after/and/or the fire and wood burner have burnt out is electric oil heaters. My little 3 year old and my husband both burnt theirselves on the heater in the lounge which was not good, especially for my 3 year old.
Also no WIFI in the bay.

Overall a lovely cottage but a lot of TLC needed, more cleaning and less clutter, and overpriced.

Thank you for taking the time to review so comprehensively. This is our family holiday cottage and run as such. Every year we take on something new to update. We have just done the kitchen which is still taking some getting used to. Last year the mattress in the double room was replaced and it is the turn of the singles this year. Instructions for the emersion switch are in the the cottage instructions but perhaps I need to stick a sign next to the switch on the wall and I will pass on the cleaning complaint. I only hope you managed a good holiday despite all this, Our family holidays with children have always been lovely.

“Perfect seaside hideaway”
Reviewed 1 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This was a beautifully equipped accommodation. Me and my friends loved staying here, the rooms all had a very welcoming and quaint feel, you can tell the place has history and has been well looked after, without being outdated. We'd even go so far as to say the pictures don't do it justice!

The location is great, right near the Sea, central to Robin Hood's Bay. The locals all seemed very friendly, we could have happily stayed there for weeks. The one thing we had trouble with, was we found the hob was tricky to use, it would have been handy to have a little bit more instruction, as we found it kept turning itself off, but we manged fine!

The steep steps and sharp corner to get to the front door unfortunately wouldn't be suitable for wheelchair users, and might be a little tricky for families with little ones and prams etc, but otherwise, I'd highly recommend this property if you want to feel nestled in the heart and soul of Robin Hoods Bay :)

Thank You for the great review. And you're right the cottage is not any good for wheel chair users and if you bring a pram to RHB then choose your cottage carefully.

I stayed in Feb with my wife and some friends. We all really loved this cute little fisherman's cottage right in the centre of the beautiful lower Robin Hood's Bay.

The weather wasn't great when we went so we spent a fair bit of time in front of the fire playing board games - which was great.

The beds were comfy, the decoration was tasteful.

My only criticism is a minor one and it is that the water heating was a little bit confusing and some instructions on how it works would have been much appreciated.

Our host had thought of everything and we felt totally at home at Coach House Cottage. The car park was very convenient for the cottage. There were plenty of maps and booklets giving information on place to visit. We went on several lovely walks and were able to make up picnics thanks to having such a well equipped kitchen. Anyone with small children would find all the books and games a real bonus.
