Stayed here in February 2017. Firstly cottage pictures could do with updating. In lounge now is large flat screen tv above fireplace and one big leather corner sofa.
The second set of beds is located on a side landing up the stairs with only a curtain for privacy so it's not an actual room, but description only leads you to believe it sleeps only 2 people anyway. Only access is through the big gates to left of property, front door on street is blocked in from inside. Through those gates you can park and gain access to cottage through kitchen.
The location of this cottage is brilliant. Set in a lovely little village it has everything you could possibly need locally, everything. The location is also a brilliant gateway to the Moors, Scarborough, Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay to name a few.
The cottage itself could do with some small jobs done. Wood burner needs attention as leaking smoke, nothing a small service wouldn't sort but overall it's a lovely little cozy cottage. Quirky, very quirky indeed. Great central heating so it definatly isn't feeling cold like some cottages. Great large bathroom with over bath shower and a small room off this with a sofa in.
I would stay back here, no question. Owner was very helpful and very polite who took time out to explain cottages history, it's a lot older than you think it is!. It is located on a road which is fairly busy but inside cottage you hear hardly anything at all as it's a very quiet village. Great local pubs and although there is a Chinese takeaway on one side, and an Indian the other (Both were fantastic btw!) there is no noise and no cooking smells, even when stood outside.
As I said, would happily stay here again.
