Staintondale village lies midway between the fishing town of Whitby, with its famous Abbey, and the spa town of Scarborough.




summer holiday

The cottage was in a lovely setting, with beautiful views. The village it was located in was charming. We were met by the owners when we arrived, and they were very friendly. The cottage was charming but rather small. It did have three bedrooms but the two single rooms were tiny. The living space also was rather small for four people. The garden area attached to the cottage was very nice. The amenities in the cottage were good, but there was no drying space for clothing.

A excellent cottage in a superb location. The owners were very helpfull nothing was to much trouble. Our dog was also made very welcome. If you like walking this location is also excellent, many walks within 2 miles which are also dog friendly. If you pick this cottage you will return as many have done

Absolutely faultless

Suberb little farmhouse style cottage. Pub within walking distance and lots of walks available to entertain the dog.

Snow at "Honey Bee" cottage

Our second visit to this remote and wonderful retreat. Snow ensured we had to walk the final quarter of a mile to the property. The owners who live adjacent were wonderful, helping with our every need. The cottage was warm and cosy, we had the log burner going very well. We enjoyed the snow, skiing and sledging. We will be back.

Julie and Mike


We loved the cottage. It was very clean and decorated to a very high standard. The cottage had everything you would need for a short stay, there was even a welcome basket with tea and biscuits and a fresh pint of milk in the fridge. My husband and I took advantage of the amazing scenery and walks in the area while the others went to visit nearby whitby and scarborough. Recommended for a relaxing break.

A little piece of heaven

This the third time that we have booked our holiday with Sykes and we can't speak highly enough of the company as a whole, from the customer services staff when you book your holiday,all the way throught to the owners of the cottages themselves. They are always friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make sure that you have a fantastic holiday.
Honey Bee cottage is a little treasure, set next to the owners home and in acres of farm land, it was beautifully decorated and scrupiously clean,the decor was well thought out and in keeping with the age of the cottage. The owners were very friendly and offered up suggestions of where the best pubs and eating places were. The location of the cottage meant that we were between Scarbough and Whitby, so we were ideally placed to visit their beachs or drive over to the moors too Goathland and the Hole of Horcum. The best part of the holidays was waking up to the sound of cows mooing in the field behind the cottage, the breathtaking sunsets and sunrises and finding the owners dog Ginny outside the front door waiting for her home cooked breakfast sausage every morning and not forgetting the Highland cattle and the owners ponies that would gallop up the field to greet us whenever we left or came back to the cottage.

Our stay at Honeybee

The location was perfect,tremendous views,peace and quiet and not far from many places of outstanding beauty and national interest. The accommadation was very compact, the main bedroom was fine but the two singles were quite claustrophobic which was such a pity. It was difficult to even get dressed in them! and no storage.
The owners were lovely, and very helpful, always around in case we needed anything.
Ideal for a couple with two small children! Also great that they accepted pets.

makes you want to return again and again

I have just stayed at this beautiful and delightful cottage with my wife, daughter and dog for 3 nights. We were made very welcome by the owners who were also very helpful and forthcoming concerning what to do and places to eat and visit. The cottage is a stunnung little farmhouse style cottage. The amenities in the cottage are excellent and the tray with biscuits on arrival is a very nice touch. The location is perfect,tremendous views,peace and quiet and is not far from many wonderful walks. Ideally situated for visiting Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Goathland and various other places. Will definitely be going back, 10/10


excellent break

Stayed in Honey Bee in early 2013. The property is lovely, spotlessly clean and well presented.
Nothing was too much trouble for the owners - even digging our car out of the snow!
Would go again without question.

Delightful and idyllic !

We stayed for one week in July , the cottage was of a great standard cosy and charming and passed our expectations . In a great setting and ideal for exploring the surrounding countryside , the owners graham and pippa were extremely helpful . We had two eleven year olds with us and there was plenty room outside to play and visit the ponies on the farm . We would definitely go back again .


Cosy cottage in a great location

Honey Bee cottage is a superbly situated cottage, well equipped and beautifully decorated. The location while peaceful is still within easy reach of Robin Hood's Bay, Scarborough and Whitby. Plenty of areas for walks and children to play. The cottage itself was very cosy with lovely comfy beds and the luxury of a choice of a bath or a shower at the end of a busy day. Pippa and Graham who own the cottage were very friendly and helpful and both the children loved Ginny (the dog).



We had a 6 night stay in October and found the cottage to be clean and cosy. It was very extensively equipped with everything you could need - a real home from home. The views were beautiful, we loved the low window in the main bedroom where you could lie in bed and view the countryside. The other bedrooms very small but adequate, even for an adult we thought. Some low beams though so watch your head if you are tall - I was OK at 5 foot 2! We didnt try the log burner as the weather was beautiful! The owners are very approachable and offered good advice on local pubs and walks etc. Loved the guinae fowl peeping in through the bathroom window! Would recommend this cottage to anyone.

Kath M

Beautiful cottage in gorgeous location.

A very well appointed,cosy cottage in a lovely part of the countryside.We had everything we needed,apart from sunshine! A thoughtful touch was the welcome tray with local cookies,much appreciated. Very handy location for trips out into the stunning countryside and not too far to the shops. The owners were very friendly and helpful and their lovely dog,Ginny provided daily entertainment for our Staffy,Harry. His first holiday romance!! We will definitely return. Loved the Guinea fowl,sheep and Highland cattle too.

Fantastic cottage with great views

Summer Bee cottage has everything you would want situated in a quiet secluded valley not far from Robin Hoods Bay and is dog friendly. It has 2 bedrooms, central heating. The kitchen is well appointed with washer/drier, dish washer etc and even has a log burner in the living area. The owners are extremely friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. When you arrive there is a small tray of tea, coffee, milk and biscuits to welcome you. there is 1 double bed room with a comfy bed but you do have to mind your head as i found to my cost as the beams are very low. the second bedroom is 2 single beds. we have stayed regularly over the past few years and it has always been excellent. Thanks


Hidden Gem

I am torn about making this entry because I would rather keep this place secret!
Weekend visit before Christmas. family two kids and dog. Log burner roaring away it couldn't get much better.
This is our second visit this year having spent a week here in the summer. The cottage itself is fantastic. Spotless upon arrival with everything you need no matter how long your stay is for. Dont be fooled that its a cottage it is surprisingly roomy.Graham and Pippa are fantastic hosts, There if needed but not hovering in the background. Its a fantastic location for any of the main east coast resorts or simply some walking on the beaches depending on the time of year.. I would have no problem whatsoever in wholeheartedly recommending Honey Bee Cottage (Unfortunately!)


Fabulous cottage in a great location

Myself, wife and two children have just returned home from staying here for a week. As the title suggests this was a great place to stay. The peaceful location is fantastic and you have all the facilities you need.
The house was spotless when we arrived with nice touches such as soap, milk and towels, which you don't always get.
The cottage is compact but was big enough for us. The two single rooms are advertised as children's rooms and they were exactly that. The beams give the cottage character but if you are 6ft tall watch your head in places. I liked the WiFi and the digi tv and my daughter liked the ponies in the fields just outside. There are sheep and cattle nearby as well.
There are a few pubs nearby and plenty of walks, however we spent most of our time touring about in the car.
All in all it is an idyllic place to stay, just watch your head in places


Lovely cottage in stunning scenery

The cottage lived up to the description and reviews and the scenery, local walks etc. are superb.

The only reason I didn't give it 5/5 is because I managed to scrape the skin off my head (no hair for protection) on the low beams upstairs 3 times, the water taps in the kitchen sink turn the wrong way ending up in me getting rather wet a number of times and the pillows were rather firm.

Despite this I would definitely return


Perfect cottage!

Ann S

We were surprised to be welcomed with a tray of tea and biscuits and the fresh flower arrangements, the cottage was more than we expected. Our children loved their bedrooms and that they were near to the horses and rabbits.
We liked to thank you for your big help to book our holiday with you within a few days.

Mr Simmons

The cottage was in a beautiful setting and had been renovated to an excellent standard. We'll certainly visit again and would recommend the cottage to friends and family.

Mrs Blackburn

An excellent cottage for a quiet relaxing holiday. Superb views and very friendly helpful owners.

Mrs Porter

We've never stayed in a cottage for a holiday before, we usually spend all day sight-seeing and only sleep wherever we've booked accommodation! It was lovely to relax and enjoy the cottage as much as we enjoyed seeing what we'd come to robin hood's bay/whitby for. It was fantastic value (we'd pay this to stay bed&breakfast), and similar to other peoples' comments in the visitor's book...we had lots planned to do outdoors but felt so happy inside that we spent quite a bit of time there. A fantastic short break!

Miss Halfpenny

A friendly welcome. Away from it all and off the beaten track, literally. My granddaughter loved the animals close at hand, and we could have just sat outside the cottage and enjoyed, rather than touring it was so peaceful. The cottage was clean and cosy.

The cottage was in a really stunning location - sea/country views. With a toddler it was brilliant having the animals on site and small walks to do straight from the property. The cottage was beautifully decorated and very clean. It felt like a really special rural retreat.

We will definitely return.

Mr Scrafton

Great location, seclusion, log fire, parking

Mr Whitworth

This was our 2nd stay at Honey Bee Cottage this year, we love everything about it. The cottage is in a perfect location for a quiet and relaxing break but also close enough to large towns should you decide to venture out. Welcoming and friendly owners who leave you alone to enjoy your break but always offer their services should they be required which in itself is a comfort.

Mr Huntington

The location was idyllic, the owners were extremely welcoming and graciously hospitable and the cottage itself was beatifully appointed and finished to a very high standard.

Great location, comfortable accommodation well presented, dog friendly, overall a great place to stay.

Mr Routh

The location was fab, it was a brilliant hideaway for a romantic getaway - we loved it!!!

Loved the remoteness - and the snow. Close to the coast which was lovely. The space was just great outside and the children loved going to see the ponies and sheep. The snow was a bonus and the loan of the sledge was great!

This was our second visit to the cottage and it was equally as good as the first.. The owners were fantastic helping us out when we needed it... We will definitely return.

Mr Richardson

An excellent cottage in a truly fantastic location. Very peaceful!

Mr Riley

Warm welcome nice to have owners on the spot; fab location.

Garden is great for children - swings and all. Isolated - but that is a virtue to us. Excellent view across valley and down to the coast at Hayburn Wyke. Good public footpath from the farm.

Mrs Payne

Honey Bee Cottage was outstanding, the owners were very attentive to all of our needs and the surrounding areas were full of opportunities for all ages and abilities. The highlight was seeing seals on the rocks at Ravenscar.

Mr Darvell

Loved everything. The whole holiday was absolutely fantastic. The owners were the best hosts, generous, friendly and helpful. Couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. The cottage was gorgeous and has everything you could need. It's location is superb and it's a perfect base for any location along the east coast. We will definitely return for another visit. It was difficult to get a mobile phone signal but we wanted to get away from it all so this was not a problem!

Miss Cook

The cottage owners where very accommodating and nice. The holiday was fantastic and the whole family loved it!

Mr Bull

Cottage was the best equipped and most comfortable place we have stayed in. Owners were very nice and really friendly.

Mr Callender

The location of the cottage was excellent as was the view. The owners were friendly and very helpful. The cottage itself was warm, cosy, beautifully furnished and the comfort factor of the double bed is to die for! The owners obviously have put a lot of thought and effort into making it a real home-from-home.

Mrs Strachan

The location and surroundings as well as the cottage were superb! Discreet but friendly owners. A tranquil but very interesting area to enjoy.

Mr Mousley

A beautiful cottage and an amazing location! We will be returning and recommending to friends and family.

Miss Barker

Fantastic setting in beautiful gardens. Spring flowers everywhere. Walks on and beyond the owners grounds. Property was 5* rating!

Mr & Mrs Watson

Our choice of Honey Bee Cottage made our holiday. While never at a loss for things to do in the area, we were always so happy to come home. It was lovely to be able to walk to Hayburn Wyke for Sunday lunch, or turn the other way out the door and access footpaths through wild flowers and down to streams. Whenever we missed our pets back home, the ponies were happy to fill in, but the highlight for my son had to be brushing the gentle Highland Cattle! I was delighted with the quality of all the work and choices of our hosts. We will always treasure the memory of our stay there. It is a special place.

Mrs Tobler

Lovely property in a excellent area with great views. Very friendly and welcoming owners. We certainly had a relaxing holiday. Would love to go again.

Mr Cooper

We enjoyed the peace and quiet and we were central to Whitby and Scarborough.

Mrs Keirnan

We liked the cottage and location - there was plenty to do.

Mrs Hardon

The general standard of the cottage was excellent. We were met by the owner, who spent a considerable time helping get our car out of a snow drift, and carrying our belongings to the cottage.

Mr Waltham

Peaceful location, away from it all. Playing with the log burner, 8 bags of logs burnt in one week!

Mr Quayle

What a beautiful cottage with wonderful owners and we were made very welcome The standard of detail was fantastic, very dog friendly too; I have a Border Collie who loves to look round. Very peaceful location. My mum loved the sky lights in the main bedroom as she just looked at the stars all night.

Mrs Cunningham

Fantastic cottage, hosts, scenery, and as it turned out, weather. The owners were very friendly and informative, and the cottage was stunning. There are very few places in the UK, or the world, that can hold a candle to the beauty of this location. And if you like animals, this place is a perfect menagerie with various farm animals, and enough wildlife to keep David Attenborough happy.

Mr Mason

A lovely cottage in a stunning location. Everything we needed for a fabulous holiday. Situated in a lovely part of Yorkshire within easy reach of lots of interesting places. We would highly recommend Honey Bee Cottage and hope to return soon.

Ms Donaldson

This was our third visit to Honeybee cottage; proof enough that we are always comfortable and well satisfied staying there.

Mrs Tansley

Great location. Friendly owners, comfy cottage, warm, good for kids, good access to Scarborough and Whitby and a lovely wood fire. Fantastic views of the stars through the skylights in the bedrooms!

Mr Bridle

Friendly people owned the property. Really good location for walking and good pubs within a short drive or reasonable walking distance. The immediate area was really good for getting out with our dog rather than having to drive somewhere first to walk him. We all liked this property and will be looking to return later.

Mr Pears

The cottage was in a beautiful setting, gardens/grounds were very well looked after. A very professional set up.

Mr Edley

Beautiful location, great weather and a friendly welcoming cottage.

Mr Machin

Mr Gray

From the moment we arrived everything was perfect; the location and the first impressions of Honey Bee.

There's everything you need at Honey Bee - from tea towels to cooking tongs, pint glasses to wine glasses.

Location good
Plenty places to visit, and beautiful walking country
Would certainly consider coming back

Mr Gay

Friendly owners, a relaxed atmosphere and lovely location - a true home from home.

Miss Fryer

The cottage is so beautiful and surrounded by the most wonderful countryside. The owners were extremely helpful with local information and nothing was too much trouble.

We would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a nice tranquil break and give it 5 stars.

Mrs Hall

A cosy warm, well equipped cottage with beautiful views.

Mrs Hounslow

The cottage, the owners and resident animals were all lovely. The area was great for coastal sightseeing and also for getting onto the moors for a walk. We encountered wildlife at every turn; from puffins and woodpeckers to barn owls, roe deer and highland cows. Spring has definitely sprung!

Mrs Cross

A lovely little cottage, and the owners were so friendly and helpful. Will certainly be returning.

Mr Marrington

Absolutely fantastic holiday. Accommodation was superb. We have stayed twice now and will go again.

Miss Maddock

A lovely cottage with great facilities and little extras too. In a wonderful location, an excellent base to get to the nearby towns, beaches and moors.

Mrs Street

This was a nice peaceful location, with comfortable beds and overall cleanliness was excellent. Owners were very friendly and helpful. We had a lovely weekend in an ideal location for visiting some of the many villages and towns on the Yorkshire coast.

Mr Robbins

What a lovely cottage! The fixtures and fittings were superb; lovely cushions, pottery, pictures, curtains and upholstery. We felt as though we were staying in someone's house. The owner, was very friendly and welcoming. The cottage was well placed for the Cleveland Way and Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay. We will definitely go back!

Ms Allwood

The cottage was warm and comfortable and the owners (and their wonderful dog Ginny) were very welcoming and friendly. We love the area and hope to be back at Honey Bee Cottage in the future.
