About the home
Pine Cottage provides peace and tranquility in beautiful surroundings in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, between the villages of Robin Hoods Bay and Ravenscar, yet is just a five minute drive from the main Whitby to Scarborough road which provides access to countless lovely places to visit. It is the perfect retreat for a romantic break and the ideal base for walkers and cyclists and those looking to escape the crowds.
The semi-detached cottage dates from the late eighteenth century and is currently undergoing refurbishment works which will be completed in July. There are spectacular views over the sea and countryside for miles around from every room other than the kitchen which overlooks the delightful cottage garden, where guests can enjoy al fresco dining or a relaxing drink on the patio, overlooking the Bay, and there is a woodburning stove for cosy nights in, watching the lovely sunsets from the living room.
The former railway track between Whitby and Scarborough is just a couple of minutes walk from the cottage and provides the option of walking or cycling to Robin Hoods Bay and Ravenscar or further afield. The Cleveland Way coastal footpath is about 20 minutes walk away, as is Stoupe Beck beach and there are numerous other lovely walks across the moors.

The Northern England / Yorkshire/Yorkshire Dales region
Yorkshire is a historic county of Northern England and within its borders are areas which are widely considered to be among the greenest in England, due to the vast stretches of unspoiled countryside in the Yorkshire Dales and North Yorkshire Moors, two of eleven areas of countryside within England and Wales to be officially designated as National Parks.
The Whitby / Robin Hoods Bay area
In nearby Ravenscar there is a seasonal tea room next to the Cinder Track which serves food all day, and an excellent restaurant, bar and golf course with spectacular views of the coast at the Raven Hall Hotel which is open to non-residents, as well as The National Trust Coastal Centre and gift shop and the Falcon Inn as you turn off the main road to Ravenscar. There is a charity half marathon around Ravenscar in April each year and Ravenscar was selected as a destination on the Coastal Trail Series organised by EnduranceLife in May.
The beautiful historic fishing village of Robin Hoods Bay, famous for smuggling in years gone by, has a village grocery store and Post Office, a selection of cafes, pubs, restaurants and a fish and chip shop, and several lovely little gift shops, Poppies of Bloomswell being our favourite! The village is at the end of the famous 190 mile Coast to Coast walk and there are antique and craft fairs in the village hall there on selected weekends and a Victorian Weekend in December.
The larger shopping areas and ports of Whitby, famous for Captain Cook, Bram Stoker's Dracula and it's Abbey, and Scarborough, Britain's first seaside resort, are each within a 30 minute drive. The attractive villages of Sandsend, Runswick Bay and Staithes are a little further up the coast and inland there is the moors village of Goathland which was the location for the popular TV programme, Heartbeat, and the opportunity to travel on the spectacular North Yorkshire Moors steam train from Grosmont to Pickering. Further afield, there is the market town of Helmsley with it's Castle and beautiful walled garden, and the stately home and gardens of Castle Howard, where Brideshead Revisited was filmed on the A64 to York, and for those with an interest in military and aircraft, the Eden Camp museum at Pickering and Yorkshire Air Museum at Elvington. There is something for everyone!

This is a real 'get-away-from-it-all' haven from the stresses of townie life, with a few welcome mod cons thrown in (you are on holiday, after all!). The views over the bay from the windows of the lounge and the bedroom (and the loo!) are stunning. It was snowing during my visit but I'd love to return in the summer, to make more use of the pretty, terraced cottage garden. Usefully, it was enclosed, so my labrador enjoyed his holiday, too, and there are amazing walks, right from the cottage door. The cottage is remote, but this is what I wanted: you need to take provisions with you unless you plan driving during your break.
Inside, the cottage is tastefully furnished and decorated, with an inviting woodburner to supplement the electric heating. The owner's husband, in the adjoining cottage, helped me to get the fire going: he was very helpful but unobtrusive throughout my stay. There is satellite tv and a stereo, and the kitchen has a dishwasher, washing machine and every utensil I could think of. The bedroom is spacious, with a light-filled reading/relaxing area.
Pine Cottage makes an ideal writers' retreat or would be a romantic bolt-hole for a couple. Definitely recommended - I hope to book another stay, soon.
