Visited this lovely little cottage for a week with my wife, daughter, daughters friend and our border collie Bella. The cottage has everything you would need for a couples or family trip. 10 minute drive to Whitby, 15 minutes to Robin Hoods Bay, 15 minutes to Goathland, 30 minutes to Scarborough. Ideal location for a variety of days out, we visited all of the places mentioned above as well as Sandsend, Runswick Bay and Staithes. The 2 girls loved Whitby that much we went every night so they could go crabbing in the harbour. Our dog was totally shattered everyday from all the walking we did. Lovely walk down the lane at the end of the road past horses and up into the fields past the stream. Would definitely come back again.

Hello, I've not been crabbing in the harbour and can't help thinking that if I was fishing for my tea I may go hungry. Hope you had more luck. Glad you all enjoyed your stay.

We have just returned from a weeks stay at blackbird cottage , what a little gem this is , everything and more of what you need a real home from home ,very comfortable , only few miles from Whitby , but far enough for peace and tranquility . So much to do in area ,you will have trouble fitting it all in , had an amazing steam train journey from Pickering to Whitby stopping at goathland ( hogs mead station for all you Harry Potter fans ) and just up the hill the fictional village of Aidan's field where heartbeat was filmed brilliant loved it . Also was very pleasantly surprised with Scarborough and fell in love with Robin Hoods bay spectacular . We also took our 2 year old wire fox terrier Stanley who really enjoyed his stay . So yes I think we will be returning soon , Thank you all at Bumblewick cottages , great end to my 50th birthday celebrations ☺️ X ps husband enjoyed all the cycling ,doing climbs featured in tour de Yorkshire

“A gem of a cottage - and a perfect few days in North Yorkshire”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Blackbird cottage was just perfect for our long weekend near Whitby. The village of Irburndale is beautiful - and we were delighted to find this pretty cottage nestled down a short country lane. Everything was as described on the Bumblewick Cottages website. We particularly liked the dining room off the kitchen - table laid for our arrival. The main bedroom was lovely too - and the bed very comfortable. Our teenagers had the twin room on the floor above - it too was beautifully presented.
We ate in the village pub one evening - friendly staff and good pub food (a steep walk up the hill on the way there; preferred walk home!). A pretty river ran through the village - our dog enjoyed her daily riverside walk.
Had a great morning at Malton Food Festival and kids enjoyed canoeing on the River Eske.
Wished we had been able to stay longer. Only disappointment was the early closing of fish and chip shops in the area!!

“lovely quaint cottage in quiet lication.”

Blackbird Cottage is a perfect base for exploring some of the nearby beaches. The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable. The Bumblewick cottage staff were very friendly and helpful. We visited with our two dogs and enjoyed visiting Whitby and Robin Hood bay, which are both only a 10 min drive from the cottage. Time flew by as it was only a short stay but we enjoyed dog friendly beach walks and yummy fish and chips in Robin hood Bay. It is a beautiful coast line and will hopefully visit again soon for more exploring.

“Comfy, cosy and looking forward to returning”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed in this super cosy cottage for three nights in September. We chose it for its location nicely situated nearby Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay and the moors, and also because it was a pet friendly cottage so we could bring our dog along for the ride.

The cottage was brilliant, with a fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable living room (with a beautiful log burner which would have been nice to use if it had been a chilly weekend). The bed was really comfortable, and with the area being really quiet, I slept like a log! We were warned previously of a lack of shower because of the poor water pressure, but this just meant it was a good excuse for a long soak in the hot bath (we even brought bubbles!).

To top it all off, there was even milk in the fridge when we arrived so we could immediately relax with a brew. Look forward to visiting again!

Cottage was great, so central and very cosy, perfect if you also have dogs as gardens great plenty of space. Cottage itself has every thing you need, great location to Whitby and robin hood bay, well worth a stay.

“Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed 6 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in this cottage with our friends, their 18 month old daughter and both of our dogs for New Year.

We felt the cottage was in a great location, was warm (the gas stove was fantastic), clean and well equipped.

We went on lots of beach walks with the dogs, found supermarkets nearby and walked up to the Plough pub which was also great.

We were in the twin room and due to the style of the cottage there was no door which meant we could hear everything happening throughout the rest of the house so we didn't have the best sleep but understand this is not something that could be easily resolved.
