Lovely house, great location

We stayed at Peat House for a weekend with friends with young children and it was lovely. The house was spacious and very clean and had a very well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms were really comfy and the kids loved the enormous twin rooms on the third floor. The pool table was a real bonus too although could do with being in the dining room so that there's more room to manoeuvre the cues! The location was perfect for us, only 5 or so minutes in the car from Robin Hood Bay and the sea views spectacular from the top bedroom. On arrival we found milk, teabags and wine which was great. Only having a shower in the en suite was a bit inconvenient but if the downstairs shower hose in the bath could be attached to the wall and a shower curtain put up, it would be the perfect holiday home!

Lovely cottage, wonderful location

The cottage is in a quiet, peaceful location, just the occasional walker passing by. Good points: Cottage has plenty of space with good sized rooms. Nice touches like a welcome pack eg bottle of wine and milk etc Very quiet area with sea views Smart TV but we couldn't link to the Internet for catch-up etc Public footpaths very nearby (a path passes right in front of the cottage), so easy to have lovely country walks. There is a path which takes you down the hill to the beach in Robin Hoods Bay in about 15-20 minutes. Good sized fridge and freezer Comfortable beds Not so good: Pool table needs mending but is level and fine for kids to have a go on. The cloth is torn in one place and one of the cushions is partly detached so ball doesn't bounce off it with pace. The shower over the bath cannot be used when standing as there is no curtain or holder for the shower head. This could be a problem for people who can't kneel or sit in the bath. There is no toilet on the top floor where two of the bedrooms are situated One top floor bedroom does not have any bedside lights. Large/wide cars would find it difficult to park through the arches to the undercover area. making it only (realistically) parking for two cars outside. Some plates/dishes are not for suitable for the microwave as they absorb the microwaves and become very hot - care needed The quilts are super warm 13.5 Tog - nice in winter but way too warm for September when we visited. Overall a very nice, comfortable cottage in a beautiful area.
