Blackbird Cottage 

A gem of a cottage - and a perfect few days in North Yorkshire

Blackbird cottage was just perfect for our long weekend near Whitby. The village of Irburndale is beautiful - and we were delighted to find this pretty cottage nestled down a short country lane. Everything was as described on the Bumblewick Cottages website. We particularly liked the dining room off the kitchen - table laid for our arrival. The main bedroom was lovely too - and the bed very comfortable. Our teenagers had the twin room on the floor above - it too was beautifully presented. We ate in the village pub one evening - friendly staff and good pub food (a steep walk up the hill on the way there; preferred walk home!). A pretty river ran through the village - our dog enjoyed her daily riverside walk. Had a great morning at Malton Food Festival and kids enjoyed canoeing on the River Eske. Wished we had been able to stay longer. Only disappointment was the early closing of fish and chip shops in the area!! Jane & Family & their dog Rainow Cheshire May 2016

Blackbird Cottage  

“Comfy, cosy and looking forward to returning”

We stayed in this super cosy cottage for three nights in September. We chose it for its location nicely situated nearby Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay and the moors, and also because it was a pet friendly cottage so we could bring our dog along for the ride. The cottage was brilliant, with a fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable living room (with a beautiful log burner which would have been nice to use if it had been a chilly weekend). The bed was really comfortable, and with the area being really quiet, I slept like a log! We were warned previously of a lack of shower because of the poor water pressure, but this just meant it was a good excuse for a long soak in the hot bath (we even brought bubbles!).
To top it all off, there was even milk in the fridge when we arrived so we could immediately relax with a brew. Look forward to visiting again! Heather & Craig Huddersfield September 2015
