Property code: G0088

Beautiful seaside escape tucked away in the picturesque fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay, well-appointed to explore the delights of the stunning Yorkshire coastline with your partner.

Set within a truly enviable location within the former smuggling gateway village, you will benefit from a number of charming eateries, traditional British pubs and independent shops in addition to a wonderful sandy beach within walking distance. As one of Yorkshire's most popular coastal villages, you could easily spend your days here as you enjoy a truly relaxing retreat. However, if you wish to explore further afield, make your way along the coast to the historically rich town of Whitby just 5.5 miles away and pay a visit to its stunning ruined Abbey or the St Mary's Church; storied with a literary history.

Step through the stable door to uncover an elegant and stylish cottage offering a homely vibe throughout. The ground floor is home to an open-plan living room made up of the lounge, kitchen and dining area. After a bracing walk along the coast, take refuge in the cosy lounge as you fire up the traditional wood burner and cosy up on the comfortable sofa in front of the TV. If you manage to resist the temptation of the wonderful eateries around and fancy a spot of home cooking, the contemporary kitchen complete with breakfast bar offers everything you'll need to prepare a hearty meal. Make your way up the winding staircase to discover the sophisticated bedroom complete with a sumptuous king-size bed and luxurious soft furnishings. The bathroom next door is a real oasis with its bath and monsoon rain shower overhead; perfect for a long candle-lit soak.

The exterior is as equally attractive, make the most of your private terrace set in an elevated position above the cottage; a wonderful setting for a spot of al fresco lunch during the warmer months. What's more, you can fire up the chimenea offering plenty of heat so you can enjoy the space long into the evening. An outside space is something of a rarity in the area, so take advantage of sitting outside of a morning as you take in the fresh sea air.

Excellent cosy cottage with everything you need - but there are some low ceilings in the bedroom and bathroom to avoid if you are tall. Good location but be prepared for walking up and down hills around the immediate area and there are steps up to access the property. Applying for a lower car park permit is recommended as there is no parking at theRead more cottage. Hide

The ancient fishing village of Polruan lies just across the river from the delightful civil parish of Fowey, a bustling picturesque town packed with quirky coastal shops, art galleries and restaurants. Surrounded by some of the region’s most enchanting countryside, this pair of Cornish cousins have a truly magical feel about them. Polruan, with its steep hill and charming cottages looking down over the pretty harbour, and Fowey with its timeless maritime charm, are linked together by the Fowey Estuary, a haven of colourful sailing and fishing boats dotted about on the water.

A short drive away are the nearby harbours of East and West Looe with their quayside restaurants, sandy beaches and wildlife boat trips. The village of Polperro, with its fascinating smuggling history and horse pulled tram is a must-see and Charlestown, with its huge square sail ships is famously known as the key filming location for the hit TV series, Poldark. Children will love winding their way through the scenic coastal landscape with the Bodmin and Wenford Railway and for those brave enough, there is ample opportunity to hunt down the mysterious beast of Bodmin Moor.

The beautiful capital town of Truro with its magnificent cathedral and wide boulevards is just over an hour away by car and the newly redeveloped St Austell, home to the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan can be reached within forty-five minutes. Surrounded by gorgeous countryside and nature reserves, lakes and rivers, the area boasts some of the best sailing and watersports in the UK. If you are looking for somewhere remote and unspoilt, but with lots to keep you busy, Polruan is the perfect choice.
