Pine Cottage is a gorgeous, cosy, stone cottage which has been recently renovated to a very high standard, between Robin Hoods Bay and Ravenscar, with panoramic views of the Bay and the sea.
It is perfect for romantic breaks, for those looking for peace and tranquillity and to escape the crowds whilst being within a short drive of numerous attractions, and for walking and cycling enthusiasts with the Cinder Track, Cleveland Way, beach and moors on the doorstep. And if you fancy doing nothing at all, you can just relax and look at the ever-changing sea and sky views and watch the ships go by!
The cottage has an open plan living/dining room with spectacular views over the Bay, a wood burning stove for cosy nights in watching the wonderful sunsets, and a flat screen TV and DVD. The newly fitted kitchen with a Belfast sink and solid wood worktop overlooks the cottage garden from both windows and has an oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer and microwave. The bedroom has a view over the meadow to the sea and a king size bed, and there is a small bathroom on the ground floor with a shower, washbasin, WC and heated towel rail. Everything in the cottage is brand new - the kitchen has Bosch and Dualit appliances, the quality furniture and furnishings have come from John Lewis, Neptune, Warren Evans and Lloyd Loom, the king sized bed has an award winning pocket sprung mattress and the bedroom and bathroom linen is from The White Company, all of which give the cottage a luxurious feel.
Outside there is a delightful cottage garden with a patio and a table and chairs, where guests can enjoy al fresco dining or a relaxing drink overlooking the bay. Private parking is on the gravel driveway next to the cottage and we are able to offer secure storage for guests who wish to bring their own bikes.
Linen, towels, Internet access (WiFi) and logs for the wood burning stove are included in the price. The telephone accepts incoming calls, outgoing calls are chargeable.

Northern England region
North East England is a beautiful part of the world with its stunning coastline and 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.
Pine Cottage is ideally located for those interested in walking and cycling.
A short walk from the cottage is the Cinder Track (the picturesque old railway line running for 21 miles between Whitby and Scarborough) and Fylingdales Moor (a nationally important haven for wildlife) with stunning views of the coast. The beach at Stoupe Beck Sands is a 20 minute walk from the cottage and from here it is possible to walk along the beach to Robin Hoods Bay or Ravenscar (depending on the tides) or join the cliff top path which forms part of The Cleveland Way.
Ravenscar and Robin Hoods Bay are both around an hour's walk from the cottage on the Cinder Track and around 20 minutes if you prefer to cycle. If you don't have your own bikes we can give you the details of a local hire company which offers bike hire for a day or longer (including electric bikes) and helmets.
In Ravenscar, which is a 5 minute drive, there are spectacular panoramic views of the Bay, the opportunity to see seals on the rocky beach, visit the old Alum Works and experience the "town that never was". There is a seasonal tea room in Station Square, a restaurant, bar and golf course at the Raven Hall Hotel which is open all year round to non-residents, The National Trust Coastal Centre and gift shop and 3 country pubs within a 10 minute drive from Ravenscar.
The picturesque historic fishing village of Robin Hoods Bay, famous for smuggling in years gone by, is a 20 minute drive, and has a couple of grocery stores and a Post Office counter, a selection of cafes, pubs, restaurants and a fish and chip shop, and several lovely little shops selling gifts, jet jewellery, chocolates, books and local artwork, 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 its 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 its Castle and the beautiful Walled Garden and the stately home and gardens of Castle Howard, where "Brideshead Revisited" and more recently, some scenes from the BBC drama "Death Comes To Pemberley" were filmed, on the A64 to York.
York is an ancient walled city, an hour's drive away, best known for its iconic Minster, beautiful buildings, cobbled streets and the Jorvik Viking and National Railway Museums. It is hosting the Tour de France Grand Départ in July 2014.
