About Melrose Cottage

Melrose Cottage sleeps up to four guests in two bedrooms (plus baby in a cot) and is a charming holiday cottage located in the quiet village of Fylingthorpe, close to the ancient and popular fishing village of Robin Hoods Bay within the North Yorkshire Moors.

The location is equally as perfect for those looking for an activity based holiday as it is for those seeking relaxation and Melrose Cottage is generously and comfortably equipped to cater for all ages.

Fylingthorpe is five miles from the ancient sea port of Whitby and sixteen miles from Scarborough. It is a great holiday destination for those who enjoy walking, cycling and those seeking peace and quiet, a beach holiday or a base from which to explore the many local attractions.

Robin Hoods Bay with its maze of tiny streets and history in smuggling, is just half a mile from Melrose Cottage and can be easily walked within ten to fifteen minutes whilst taking in the spectacular sea views across to Ravenscar and Stoupe Brow.

Fylingthorpe has a shop with a good range of supplies, a butchers and bakers, a Methodist Church and a pub and Robin Hood's Bay offers a wide selection of places to eat.

The Scarborough-Whitby bus stops in the village, making this a suitable holiday destination by the sea for those who want to leave the car at home.
