We are staying in The Cowslip cottage at Meadowbeck and I cannot recommend it highly enough for superb dog-friendly self catering accommodation close to Robin Hood's Bay. Situated off the A171 it's a small holding nestling on hills with acres of grass fields and woodland with views of the Bay. It is excellent for dogs as you can walk along the public footpaths downhill towards the Bay. Our 3 year old Cockapoo loves it.
What's more, you have 2 resident donkeys in the field that you can watch from the French doors to the lounge. The setting itself is so idyllic that you could happily sit in the Lounge all day observing the landscape.
The accommodation itself has been finished to a very high standard in a modern vintage style that would suit most tastes.
This cottage has 2 bedrooms with a bathroom containing not only a corner shower but also a large corner bath. The bedrooms are so clean and bright with useful storage space. All floors are tiled or laminated throughout but there is underfloor hearing which is so pleasant.
Downstairs is a lounge with a comfortable sofa and 2 wing backed chairs. Off the lounge is a lovely fitted kitchen and dining recess. In the entrance hall is a downstairs cloakroom so you have 2 toilets. All the decor is pastel cream and sage green providing a peaceful ambience. There is lots of quirky wooden features too - particularly the TV unit. The TV itself has a Freesat box and there is also a DVD player.
If you like modern shabby chic then you will definitely love it here.
Outside is a small paved terrace with patio furniture where you can sit and overlook the fields towards the Bay.
There is also a community room with a washer dryer and games room with snooker and pool tables.
Whitby is approximately 7 miles away and Robin Hood's Bay about 5 miles away. Also nearby is Falling Foss waterfall (5 miles) and Goathland Station (5 miles) for Harry Potter fans. You are right in the borders of the North Yorkshire moors too providing done stunning scenery.
All in all, this accommodation is fantastic in my opinion and the owners go the extra distance to make you feel very much welcomed and at home.
Stayed at the Swallows Rest cottage for 4 nights with my partner. These cottages are so lovely, all amenities provided, lovely decorated & lay out, beautiful views & added bonus of the donkeys right outside the patio.
The owners are so friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble.
Fabulous location, Whitby, Robin Hoods' Bay, Scarborough all on the doorstep and within easy reach.
We would recommend these cottages to anyone considering staying, and will definitely be back again in the future.
The location is very good for North Yorkshire everything ieasy to get to , Robbin hoods bay, Whitby. Very dog friendly,when you do come to say here & you have a dog visit falling floss gardens it's a lovely please to walk. The cottage is very clean& everything you need is their. The donkeys are great lovely to see them eating their breakfast in a morning view out of window not bad too.
The location was great with scarborough, Whitby and North Yorkshire Moors all with in easy reach.The Cottage was loverly, spotlessly clean and amazing views. We was so impressed we book to return before we left.
We stayed in the forget me not cottage. Very nice. Beautiful and we'll equipped inside. Underfloor heating to keep it nice and warm. 2 good sized bedrooms. Nice kitchen with lots of space for cooking. Spotlessly clean.
There is also a games room across the yard with pool, table football, darts and other games.
The location is great. They is a nice pub with good food and a petrol station 5 mins away. A short drive to Whitby. Robin hoods bay is close too.
We had a really great time. Dogs welcome too. We would definitely go back.
It's always a risk to re-visit somewhere you have loved staying. This is our third stay in Swallow's rest and has been as perfect as ever. Even though the cottages are more popular than ever they are still at the highest of spec, and as fresh as they were when we first visited. We made more use of the games room this year and throughly enjoyed the table football. Our youngest enjoyed the real eggs laid by the twins and Poppy. This year we walked further and managed the Cleveland Way to Whitby, which was muddy but a fantastic walk. We had the warmest of welcomes again from Graham and Lisa. We would highly recommend these cottages to families and couples, with or without dogs. We'll be back again soon!
My friends and I stayed at the Swallows Rest cottage for an extended weekend. We loved everything about the cottage and location. Unfortunately we didn't have time to try the games room but it looked great too. Would definitely recommend and return again.
