Ballina is a pretty little south-facing cottage situated on a quiet street in the heart of lower Robin Hood's Bay. It enjoys a slightly more open and sunny aspect than some and has a pretty decor that evokes a sense of being at the seaside. It has 2 lovely bedrooms, a cosy lounge and a separate dining kitchen. There is a bench at the front of the property which enjoys both the morning and afternoon sun; perfect for a morning coffee or an early evening glass of wine.
Please note that whole-week bookings are Saturday - Saturday during peak times.
The accommodation comprises:
Ground FloorBallina is accessed from Silver Street via 4 stone steps up to the front door. The small entrance porch leads into a welcoming lounge with a fully upholstered sofa and armchair and a separate bucket chair. Although this is a naturally warm and cosy cottage and has full central heating, it is further enhanced by the log-burning stove for those chilly winter evenings. For your entertainment, there is a flat-screen TV, WiFi and an iPad docking station.
Lower Ground FloorFrom the back of the lounge, a wooden staircase leads down into the kitchen dining room. The kitchen has modern units with pine worktops and a Belfast sink and there is a small window to the front elevation. There is a gas cooker with a 4-ring hob, extractor hood, an under-counter fridge with a small freezer compartment, a microwave, kettle, toaster and a portable CD player. A white wood dining table with four chairs completes the picture and the tiled floor has under-floor heating making this a warm and cosy retreat for relaxed family meals.
First FloorAlso from the back of the lounge, a carpeted staircase leads up to the main bedroom comprising a metal-frame double bed with bedside tables, a chest of drawers and a built-in wardrobe cupboard. The feature fireplace, though non-working, adds to the ambience and the window in this room has lovely open views over the pantiled rooftops of the village and towards the sea. The bathroom is also on this floor and comprises a roll-top bath with a fixed rain-head shower over. There is a large washbasin and WC and the floor is original dark-stained warm wooden floorboards.
Second FloorFrom the first-floor landing, a further carpeted staircase leads up the lovely attic room where there are 2 full-width single beds arranged in an L-shape, a large chest of drawers and 2 bedside tables. This room has a very seasidey feel to it with nautical striped bed linen and seaside bunting. The dormer window to the front aspect has lovely views over the village and the sea towards Ravenscar. Please note that the stairs are open to this room, the door being at the bottom of the staircase rather than at the top.
