As with Hudson Cottage, Stephenson Cottage consists of a spacious sitting room, fully equipped kitchen, dining room and downstairs bathroom.


It has its own lawned garden complete with patio furniture, parasols and BBQ. Whilst being similar to Hudson Cottage with two upstairs bedrooms – one double with en-suite and one twin bedded room, Stephenson has an additional ground floor double bedroom with a lovely vaulted ceiling, which can accommodate a further two people.

The Platelayers
R&B’s Tuck Shop


The tuck shop is open to visitors to both Hudson and Stephenson cottage, where you can purchase a range of essential toiletries, drinks, snacks and disposable BBQs.


Bags of bird nuts are also available.


We offer Yorkshire produce, including Trillos ice-cream made in Whitby… all payable on a honesty basis. A price list is displayed on the wall in the tuck shop with an honesty box on the counter top.


If you are wondering what the R&B stands for in the title – ‘R&B’s Tuck Shop – Its the initials of the owners, children, Rosy and Bobby.

Log Burning Stoves


The cottages both benefit from oil fired central heating throughout and each cottage has a log burning stove in the lounge for chilly evenings.


A supply of logs is provided for you on arrival.
