Bronte Cottage

Bronte Cottage sleeps up to three people - with one double and one compact single bedroom.

Bronte Cottage is a traditional, 19th century, stone built mill cottage situated just off the High Street in the rural village of Hinderwell. The cottage has recently been carefully renovated, tastefully decorated and retains many original features - such as beamed ceiling and traditional stone and brick fireplace in the sitting room.  Offering cosy and compact accommodation furnished to a high standard, Bronte Cottage is ideally located for visiting nearby villages such as Staithes and Runswick Bay or the towns of Whitby or Saltburn, and exploring the moorland villages of the North York Moors National Park. A perfect base for a relaxing holiday.

The ground floor comprises open-plan sitting room/dining area, with beamed ceiling, wooden floor, brick and stone fire place with electric stove, settee and cane chair, table and oak chairs; compact but well equipped kitchen with quality bespoke wooden cabinets and a granite work surface, with combination microwave oven, hob, toaster, kettle, fridge with freezer compartment and washing machine.

Upstairs there is the main bedroom, with original fireplace, a pine framed double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, bed side cabinet and additional clothes hanging space in the airing cupboard; the second bedroom has a pine framed single bed and chest of drawers; the compact WC/shower room with an enclosed shower cubicle, corner WC, wash basin, heated towel rail and shaver point.

Bronte Cottage does not have its own garden or yard area but in warm weather, why not visit the beer garden just across the road at the Badger Hounds? 

One small well behaved dog is welcome (by arrangement) but should never be left on its own in the property or allowed on the furniture or on the beds.  Any pets must be exercised regularly to ensure they are adequately 'toiletted'!

Please note for the comfort and safety of all guests we have adopted a strict no smoking policy.


Heating from oil filled radiators with additional heating from electric stove in sitting room. Electric hob, combination microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge, washing machine, colour TV, with Freeview box, video recorder/DVD, radio, cassette & CD player, books, games, iron & ironing board. A small selection of CDs and DVDs is also provided. All fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and a tea towel are provided (but please bring your own bath towels). Roadside parking is usually available on the High Street nearby.  The lane in front of the house can be used for loading and unloading but should not be used for parking as access is required for neighbouring properties.
