Reviews - The Locker

Not Classified  Self Catering Ratings explained
The Locker, Coble Heads Covet Hill, Robin Hood's Bay near Whitby, YO22 4SN
Just seconds from the beach in Robin Hood's Bay! The Locker is a cosy, self-contained, small hideaway for two adults. It consists of a double bedroom with en-suite shower, simple self-catering facilities and a pretty little garden with views across to The Bay Hotel. The bed is built in, against the walls, like a cabin in a boat.

The Locker is right in the heart of the old village of Robin Hood's Bay, in a house that was around in the 1680's - and earlier.... unfortunately village records were destroyed in the English Civil War.

The main house was originally 2 fishermen's cottages and The Locker is on the ground floor facing the Bay Hotel. It was where fishing nets, crab and lobster pots were once stored and repaired.

The whole of this 'yellow house', Ocean View, is currently FOR SALE (see Rightmove), however until there is a purchaser I am continuing to take bookings. The holiday let parts are just in the left side of the building, i.e. Ocean View and The Locker.

LOCATION
The Locker is seconds from the beach and although there are no sea views, you can usually hear the sea when it's quiet. There are 3 pubs within a 10 minute round walk (excluding stopping time!) and a candlelit restaurant, cafes, gift shops, ice-cream and a snack take-away shop, fish and chip shop, second hand book shop - to name a few - all within a very short stroll…

WHAT IS THE LOCKER AND WHO DOES IT SUIT?
The Locker is a cosy, self-contained bedroom en-suite with some simple self catering facilities and a pretty garden. An ideal retreat for :-

• One or two adults who want a bolt hole right in the heart of the village and will mainly be eating out

• A perfect stop over at the end of the ‘Coast to Coast'! Single night stays Sunday to Thursday, apart from in the high season

• Providing an extra, private, self-contained bedroom en-suite if you have friends or family staying in Ocean View or another cottage in Robin Hood's Bay – and want your space…

• NOT suitable for really tall people! It's in an old property and anyone well over 6 feet tall will find the shower ceiling too low, Sorry!

WHY CHOOSE THE LOCKER?
- It's advantage is the position, being self-contained and having a little garden.

- If visitors are OK with the space, they find it quite a snug and romantic, handy hideaway for the beach, cliff walks and the local pubs and cafes.

- If you want space, arm chairs, settees and sea views it's not for you!

PRIVATE GARDEN: Outside there is a small, pretty garden, where you can sit and have a cuppa, a glass of wine, or whatever your tipple is... as you watch the world go by. It faces the Bay Hotel and looks over "The Dock" area. Brilliant for people watching! Or just reading a book…

SLEEPING: The bed is built in, like a cabin in a boat, 4ft 3in by 6ft 3in, with a deep comfortable mattress.

HEATING: There's a large towel radiator in the bedroom to warm the room and dry towels etc when the gas central heating is on and also an electric radiator.

SIMPLE SELF-CATERING: The Locker has a fridge, microwave, kettle, plates, glasses and cutlery for two people. Also, tea and coffee making facilities, stocked with ordinary and decaffeinated coffee, plus herbal and fruit teas and some UHT milk. And a bottle opener!

EATING IN: There is a fold down table and a couple of stools which also fold away and store under the bed.

STORAGE: Suitcases and bags can be stored in an alcove by the entrance, which also has a storage shelf and coat hooks. Space is at a premium so every nook and cranny is used!

SHOWER etc: The shower is a decent size at 800 by 1000 mm, however it would be low for someone well over 6 feet tall!
All towels, shower gel, shampoo etc are provided and a hair dryer.

FACILITIES: Flat screen TV and DVD player - plus some books and DVD's.

PARKING: Scarborough Borough Council pay and display car parks at the top of the hill

lovely room very small but everything we needed. The locker is a perfect location and perfect view.
Our stay was great wasn't aware how steep the bank was but kept us fit. Make sure you don't run out of cash on a night as nearest cash point is Whitby there is a po at top of bank but obviously not open late. Overall would definitely go back.

Absolute dream!
Our stay at the locker was absolutely wonderful it's the perfect romantic hideaway for a couple. However the best thing about this accommodation is the location. It's the best spot in the bay, just a couple of minutes walk from the beach, pubs, restaurants and little gift shops. Jean and Keith were also extremely helpful and friendly and always on hand if we needed anything at all.
Overall we had a perfect weekend and we can't wait to come back to the locker.

does exactly what it says on the tin
A perfect little hideaway. Seconds from the beach. Lovely and cosy for a couple wanting to chill out. And that is exactly what we did. We only stayed 3 nights, next time will definitely be longer. The village is picture perfect. Loved every minute of our stay.

Perfectly cosy
A tiny little self contained "cabin" right by the sea. Very very small but has everything you need for a short stay in a lovely setting. Site and owner are upfront about size, but you really don't need anything bigger. We booked at very short notice and the owner was very helpful and the place was everything we wanted. Really enjoyed our stay and would go back again.

Unusual and Intimate Room
Robins' Hood Bay is a really special place to stay. Even in winter the bay is a great place to visit.
'The Locker' is much like a cabin in a boat, open the window and the roar of the nearby sea really completes the set. Perhaps the pop-up table and folding chairs are an optimistic addition, but the outdoor garden has plenty of space for dining al fresco. If you are happy being really close during your stay then give this venue a go. If you want to spread out a bit then try their other rental.
