‘What a beautiful home from home stay!!! Everything you could need and just perfect for children with a stunning garden! Fantastic hosts and great communication’

June 2021

Beautiful spacious cottage situated on a nice residential street close to Runswick Bay beach. This air bnb is perfect for a coastal getaway and base to explore the Yorkshire coastline, with the Cleveland Way walking trail litrally on your doorstep. The cottage is even bigger than the pictures depicted here and had so much character and attention to detail, we loved it!! Jane was a wonderful host and you can see how much thought, joy and care goes into running this air bnb. Would return again and again, was lovely!

‘The house was lovely and it was a real privilege to stay in it. Everything was pristine and love the kitchen and bathrooms, all superb quality. We had family over from NZ and one of them does real estate for a living…. she thought your kitchen was wow! My son (he’s 9) enjoyed playing in the garden and flying his kite on Runswick Bay.’

‘We had an incredible weekend at Jane’s house. The house is absolutely stunning! When we walked into the open plan kitchen/living room area we were blown away but how beautifully decorated and equipped it was. It was very cosy and warm, and had everything we needed. I got in touch with Jane to ask if she could put some decorations out for a surprise for my friend’s birthday. She was more than happy to help and made it a very special arrival. There were thoughtful welcome treats left too. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!’

‘What a beautiful home. Fantastic indoor and outdoor spaces for our family. I would highly recommend this place to any families who want both space outside with a great location and a cosy and comfortable place inside if the weather isn’t great.’

‘An immaculately presented and generously appointed homely home all to a high standard, especially the kitchen which is extremely well-equipped and very pleasant to cook in. The kids loved the trampoline and the host arranged a high chair and travel cot which lightened our travel load. In a lovely quiet spot away from the old town but just a (steep) descent down to the picturesque enclosed bay. No niggles whatsoever, all in all highly recommended.’

Crabapple Cottage

‘Jane’s cottage is utterly dreamy and Jane is a fabulous superhost. I made a mistake with dates booked and left some items behind, and she dealt with both (I’m sure quite annoying) issues fantastically. The cottage is wonderfully located between Runswick Bay and Staithes, so driveable to lots of other coastal treats. It is decorated in a laidback neutral boutique style and is cosy and comfortable. It is exceptionally well equipped, and there are a few welcome treats to greet you in the fridge. The garden is wonderful; long and lush green with field views at the end. The kids loved the trampoline and we used the gas BBQ, lovely rattan furniture and picnic bench several times. The neighbours were friendly and full of advice re beaches and shop opening hours etc. There’s a Co-op in next village and a few pubs, chippy and butchers in Hinderwell. We will be back. Thank you, again Jane. A week here was such a tonic after lockdown craziness. 10/10’

“We had a lovely week at Crabapple Cottage. It’s a cosy and comfortable house, very well kitted out with everything we needed in the kitchen, tasteful decor and lots of little touches like welcome drinks, a packet of nice biscuits, a bluetooth speaker and extra extension leads. The cottage was clean, bed was comfy, garden huge with two seating areas and a trampoline(!). 2 mins walk to a great pub with food the Badger Hounds and an easy 1 mile walk down to the gorgeous beach at Runswick. Easy drive to Sandsend/Whitby. Also easy to get the bus to Whitby or Stathes in the other direction (including evening buses). Would recommend this cottage and Hinderwell for a relaxing base to explore the area!”

‘It was a total pleasure to stay at the beautiful quaint cottage. The garden was bigger than I expected. It was sparkling clean, excellent quality bedding & furnishings. We loved the log burning stove, a real treat for us. We will return.

May 2021

A perfect location within 30 min drive of Robin Hoods Bay/Whitby and other closer bays within walking distance. Great enclosed garden for the pooch and sundowners in the summer. The cottage itself had everything we needed and the fire was well used after a wet coastal walk!!

‘This is a lovely cottage in a great location. Our stay was very comfortable and helped by magnificent weather. The welcome, facilities (including the garden) and information from Jane all excellent. There is plenty of good walking, not just along the well-worn coastal path but also inland along the many footpaths from Hinderwell. (The Cicerone guide has good suggestions). Excellent butchers and fish and chips in the village and cafe at Runswick Bay. Walking from the door and good public transport links along the coast meant that we didn’t need to use the car during our stay. Would recommend.’

‘Lovely week spent in this cosy little cottage. Both dogs and humans had a great week walking Cleveland Way. Weather not always brilliant but the views and scenery made up for that. Great beaches and cliff top walks. Sunday lunch at the Badgers made it perfect. Thank you.’
October 2020

‘Our 2nd visit. Great week. Very comfortable accommodation and a wonderful garden for our dog. Lovely days at Staithes, Sandsend, Saltburn and Whitby. We highly recommend the fish an chip shop opposite. We will recommend this place to family and friends.’

‘Another wonderful stay, such a lovely cottage – a real home from home. So enjoyed the log fires too. Our dog loved running up and down the garden. Thank you, we would definitely come again.’
