But don't just take our word for it, read what previous guests have said about Bay View below:

Not our honeymoon, but after a few days it began to feel a little like that. We love the peacefulness of this lovely place, sitting outside watching the sea and the wildlife (pheasants, deer, rabbits, hares). We┤ve walked to see the seals close up, and to Robin Hood┤s Bay, and afterwards we´ve relaxed here in the evenings. It is perfect. Thank you. We┤d love to come back sometime.

Thank you for such a relaxing stay in a truly beautiful location! We loved to spend hours enjoying the view from the sun loungers whilst listening to the seals. Such a peaceful, romantic getaway - the perfect place to spend our honeymoon. Thank you.

We turned the corner and there it was, a view that makes your heart soar! This is truly a small piece of heaven, everything has been thought of and no detail overlooked. Even the choice of music was if it was our own! We can´t say how wonderful these few days have been. The good weather enabled us to sit and eat outside, indeed, it┤s been hard to leave the house when everything you could want or need is here. True luxury in every way. Thank you for creating such a wonderful place, that truly does ones soul good. We will definitely return.

Our first visit, but definitely not our last! Thank you so very much for a magical stay; we enjoyed and appreciated all the thoughtful and luxurious touches. We loved every second here, and a surprise engagement has sealed it in our hearts forever!

What a magical place! Thank you so much for sharing it with us for a few days! We never tired of the ever changing view. You have made something very special here with every detail thought through. A real home away from home. We will return!

What a magical place! Thank you so much for sharing it with us for a few days! We never got tired of the ever-changing view. You have made something very special here with every detail thought through. A real home away from home.

This is our fourth visit to to this little slice of heaven. We first visited in 2015 for our very first weekend away together. Since then we have returned every year, getting engaged and celebrating our honeymoon. We love it here, it´s simply paradise! It´s lovely to be able to open up the french doors from the lounge and walk out to that view! The view from the upstairs bedroom is wonderful and how beautiful to wake up from the gentle morning light. As ever thank you for a fanatic stay filled with happy memories.

I just wanted to say thank you for looking after us, we felt very welcome and we have enjoyed every minute. We hope to be back soon and we will definitely spread the word! Thank you for making my Mum┤s birthday very special.

We wanted to let you know that we had the most fantastic break. Bay View is right up there with the best properties and best locations Iĺve stayed and the owner was extremely welcoming and helpful.

We had a truly magical time! Bay View is beautiful, with lots of lovely touches, including the mince pies which were delicious. It┤s so peaceful and tranquil, with stunning views and the weather has been great. We will be back. So grateful for you sharing your home, thank you.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bay View and felt totally relaxed. The location is excellent for walking and exploring and remote enough to block out the outside world - the view is amazing. We have booked a few times with Unique Home Stays and have never been let down by the online and verbal communication or the properties. Thank you.

Our sixth visit, our favourite getaway and a chance to revisit our favorite haunts and discover new delights. This cottage is a hidden treasure set in the most amazing countryside, so cosy and welcoming. We were blessed with lovely weather and were able to sit out and enjoy the garden with its beautiful bulbs and wisteria. Thank you for another wonderful stay!

We have stayed in Yorkshire lots of times but this is definitely the most idyllic venue we have been to! The Cottage was so comfortable and was a real haven from which to watch the world. We had some fabulous walks, enjoyed some great fish & chips, and marveled at the spectacle of Le Tour de Yorkshire - a grand day out! The owners were great hosts who would not have been more approachable. They will look after you very well, so enjoy!

We loved our time at Bay View, it was so relaxing! Dawn was a perfect host. We would recommend it and would go back ourselves in a heartbeat.

We┤ve had such a lovely and peaceful time in this gorgeous, cosy cottage. So wonderful to wake up to sea views and a beautiful landscape. Thank you for being so welcoming and for all the treats - we┤ve felt very spoilt this Christmas, and it┤s been everything we hoped it would be! We will miss it here, along with the walks and the sheep whom Michael has made a number of contented efforts to befriend (unsuccessfully!). Thank you so much!

We had the most amazing time here at Bay View for our honeymoon. The walks are beautiful (even if you choose to go on the mistiest day all week!) and it was fun to visit Whitby. We┤re definitely leaving with huge smiles on our faces although a little sad that it┤s now back to reality. Thanks for making us feel so so welcome, we┤re sure to be back again in the future!

We came for our Pearl Wedding Anniversary and we were not disappointed. We have had a wonderful few days at this beautiful spot with 5-star accommodation. Everything was so well done and thought out. Thank you Dawn for your warm welcome, the little extras you provided and of course the all important bubbly! We would love to come again in the summer so that we can sit outside and take advantage of the views, although on two nights out of the three, we were blessed with a heaven of diamonds above us. It was amazing! Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful place.

Thank you for creating Bay View for us lucky guests to enjoy! It is so peaceful and picturesque. We went for walks along the coast every day but often yearned to be back at the cottage, soaking up the tranquility and the lovely views. Thanks for the warm welcome, your help arriving and your help leaving! Hugely appreciated

A wonderful and magical spot. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. What a view and location. Thank you for your lovely warm welcome, the little extras of ingredients for our first meal, the flowers and the bottle of fizz in the fridge were all wonderful, thoughtful and truly appreciated. Your cottage is perfect and the location is idyllic. We wanted to bottle it up and take it home! We have had a lovely relaxing week, taking in the walks along the Cleveland Way, and had a lovely day at the Great Yorkshire Show and also Castle Howard. Best of all knowing we had a cosy cottage to come back to if we ventured out - it was very tempting not to! We hope to return, thank you again!

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful home. We had such a relaxing time. The views were amazing and the walks were great. It was good to see so much wildlife, so close. Thank you!

We absolutely loved this cottage for our Christmas week getaway. A perfect setting away from the craziness of Christmas. The cottage was decorated with thoughtful Christmas decorations everywhere. We very much enjoyed cosy nights in listening to the wind and rain by the fire, watching the ships pass and wildlife through the binoculars. We enjoyed the coastal walk to Robin Hood┤s Bay and a day at Whitby. The cottage is provided with everything you could possibly need. It feels like a private hideaway and is a perfect spot to charge your batteries and prepare for the year ahead. Thank you very much to Dawn and Steven!

Simply perfect in every way! We couldn┤t have asked for a more relaxing or romantic cottage for our weekend away. We have loved snuggling up in front of the fire on dark evenings. The views are amazing and the attention to detail is second to none. A truly luxurious cottage which we will most definitely return to.

Beautiful Cottage and wonderful scenery. Chilled out, relaxed and content having thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Thanks to Dawn for allowing us to have an excellent short holiday with good walks and lovely views.

This is by far the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in quite a few). In a perfect location with stunning views, decorated and furnished with care, a totally relaxing haven. We stayed for our wedding anniversary and will definitely be back. Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday, we couldn┤t have asked for more!

We stayed here to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and it was an idyllic spot for some peace and quiet. The views are outstanding and it was a great place from which to explore the coast and the moors. Everything inside the cottage is perfect and tastefully decorated.

After a stressful journey we arrived at Bay View, and the views upon arrival were to die for. There were deer on the lawn and stunning walks in every direction. We enjoyed strolling along The Cinder Track and eating fish and chips at the Magpie. We searched for fossils along the cliffs in the Robin Hoods Bay, but no luck. The coffee at the YHA cafe more than made up for it though. Thank you Dawn for such a lovely welcome and for all your help with sorting out our tyre!

We have been very fortunate in our lives in that we have traveled quite widely and have experienced many lovely forms of accommodation. We think that Bay View is now probably top of our list. The location is perfect, the view is literally awesome, the standard of the property and facilities is second to none and Dawn the owner is the icing on the cake. She was the perfect host, very welcoming but then left us alone to relax. Short of an endless gin supply (and there was actually some gin supplied by Dawn!)there was literally nothing that could have improved this stay.

Wow, what a fabulous four nights. The perfect retreat to relax, unwind and recharge the batteries! Thank you so much Dawn and Steve for all of the thoughtful touches, they really give Bay View a touch of luxury! We were blessed with fantastic weather and will forever remember the stunning views with the rabbits playing on the lawn, the midnight skies with a myriad of stars, watching the sun breach the horizon with hot mugs of tea in hand, fabulous walks along Cleveland Way catching a glimpse of wild deer, champagne and oysters at The Marine in Whitby, long soaks in the luxurious bath and a glass of wine or two in front of the roaring fire! So sad to be leaving this perfect piece of North Yorkshire, we┤ll definitely be back soon!
