“Great Place to stay.”
Reviewed 30 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed for three nights in September and enjoyed every one of them.
The cottage is spotlessly clean and has some beautiful art on the walls. most of which is for sale.
It is in a great location, 20 min walk from Robin Hoods bay and on the main Scarborough-Whitby bus route.
Lindsey and Martin live next door and are very understanding hosts but do not intrude on your stay.We had no problems while there so did not contact them, I'm sure if we had any issues they would have been there immediately
All in all a great place to stay and one we would be happy to return to..

The cottage is really well equipped, beautifully finished, spotlessly clean and in a perfect location for a relaxing few days by the sea - excellent!

“Lovely cottage in an ideal location”

We have just had a wonderful week staying in Alpha Cottage. It was exactly as describes. Beautifully clean, in an ideal situation and so well equipped. The welcome pack we had waiting for us was of a higher standard than most (I won't spoil it in case you decide to go). The rooms were all so tastefully decorated and we loved all the artwork, which you could buy if you wished. We really appreciated the little extras left for us (dishwasher tablets for the dishwasher etc) as well as milk, tea bags, and sugar etc. It is ideal for walking into Robin Hoods Bay (we went both the scenic route though the ford and fields) and onto the Cleveland Way, and along the footpath, to Boggle Hole where there is a lovely tea room. We also walked along the Cinder Path, which is just down the road to Whitby and caught the bus back which dropped us off at the end of the street. We only used the car twice all week to go a little further afield, as everything you could want is so close. It is a lovely quiet street, and really felt like a home from home.

Alpha cottage has everything. Immaculately clean accommodation, good WiFi, comfy bed, open fire. Stacks of information about the area and a very efficient booking process. Hosts Lindsey and Martin are excellent. Would definitely stay again. Food in local pub really good, all home made and reasonably priced.

Absolutely lovely house. A true find. Spotlessly clean & well equipped. A true home from home. Loved the decor & open fire. Really conveniently located, great for the Cleveland Way & for visiting Robin Hoods Bay.
I would definitely recommend to anyone who appreciates a well designed; comfortable property that they immediately want to feel at home in.

“A perfect short break”
Reviewed 9 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016
2
people found this review helpful

Just arrived home from a wonderful short break at Alpha Cottage
The cottage provided a perfect base to explore the area around Robin Hood's Bay
We arrived late and our hosts Lindsey and Martin were very accommodating! Thank you!
The cottage itself is beautifully restored after a recent renovation and was spotless.
The space was great for the four of us and we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the attic room which looks deceivingly low on the photos. However, my son is 6' 3" and he had no problem with the height of it and really liked the room.
The short walk down to Robin Hood's Bay is exactly as they describe in the details and we all thoroughly enjoyed walking along the coastal paths, where the views are stunning.
Alpha Cottage was a great find, our stay was all too brief but we will be back.
Many thanks.

There are no negatives with this cottage, we received a warm welcome from the owner and it is as described on the website.
Clean, comfortable with tasteful fresh decor and a well equipped kitchen.
The decent sized bath towels were a bonus.
Convenient for the local shop and Pub.
