Luxury self catering cottage in Robin Hoods Bay.

Accommodation Details

Primrose is located half way up Albion Road opposite the old Smugglers Museum (now Albion Hall and residential) and has the benefit of being able to park directly outside to unload if you’re quick.

Primrose is double fronted and the main front door opens into a large lounge with painted floor, 2 large leather sofas, a leather armchair, flat screen Freesat TV with DVD and video. There’s a cast iron gas log burning stove for instant heat and a couple of period tables. Timber shutters keep the inquisitive eyes at bay should you require them.

Through the door is the stair that runs between the rooms upstairs and through the next door is a generous kitchen / diner with modern units, oak worktops, small double oven, washer dryer and other mod cons (sorry, no dishwasher, its a Belfast sink for the kids instead!)

At the far end of the kitchen is a large rustic dining table, the top made from one large solid plank. An old church pew forms the seating down one side and wooden farmhouse chairs down the other. The iPod dock lives here on the table. There’s also a large under-stairs cupboard.
Back to the stairs and a straight wide flight (unusual for the Bay as they’re usually a lot more fiddly and quirky) leads to the first floor, an old lifeboat oar forms the handrail and at the top of the stairs there’s a good selection of books to be found.

Immediately to the left is the house bathroom, again a good size with contemporary shower bath with amazing blue-green metro tiles, exposed stone wall, floorboards and original wood panelling.
Back across the landing and down the hallway there’s the third and second bedroom on the left and the master bedroom on the right.

The third bedroom is the kids bedroom with triple bunk arrangement comprising 4’ double with 3’ single over. There’s a small chest of drawers with a TV video player to keep them entertained. There’s also the second external door which leads out onto the external staircase to the garden. The room has exposed floorboards and timber shutters at the windows.

The second bedroom has a double bed, exposed floorboards, an old cast iron fireplace and built-in period cupboard. The large sash window affords good views to Sunnyside and beyond.
The master bedroom has an extremely comfortable and imposing cast iron bed, original cast iron fireplace and exposed floorboards. There’s a large antique chest of drawers and an old gentlemen’s wardrobe. Again there’s a large sash window.

Throughout the cottage there are lots of rugs and cushions, throws and the odd antique. Lighting is dimmable in the lounge for those romantic nights in. The walls are adorned with old local scenes, fantastic old yachting images, an admiralty chart and o/s map of the area amongst other interesting stuff.

Outside the cottage up the 40 or so rickety stone steps (and at the top and to the right) you’ll find our small cliff top garden and two benches, just the sort of place to take a glass of something cold (and a few spares) after a hard days walk and unwind, savoring the sea air and admiring the amazing roof top view that can only be Robin Hood’s Bay.
Finally, Primrose comes equipped with luxurious feather duvets and pillows, Egyptian cotton bedding and fluffy white towels. A parking permit for the two council car parks at the top of the bank is also included.
