Sun seekers will not find many better Robin Hood's Bay holiday cottages than Eve Cottage, which has not just one but two sun terraces.
The first of these boasts gorgeous panoramic sea views that allows visitors to see across the entire Bay from Ness Point to Ravenscar, while afternoon and evening sun is captured by the other, which overlooks the village.
One of the key features of this accommodation is a working Aga in the kitchen, while a stone drinking trough has been converted into the sink.
There is a parking permit for Eve Cottage – where prices start at £390 – and it is accessed by a set stone steps from Chapel Street.

Superb views of both moorland and the sea are among the many reasons to book a stay at Overdale, which is one of the finest Robin Hood's Bay holiday cottages with private parking.
This family friendly accommodation, found on the Cleveland Way, is perfect for the summer months as it has a stunning garden complete with a barbecue.
Perhaps best of all about visiting Overdale is the fact that if you book a stay there between June and September, you will also be given the use of a chalet located on the beach at Whitby.
Wi-Fi internet is available for no extra charge, which will be useful as mobile signal can be variable in this part of the world, but unfortunately pets are not allowed at this location.
Cycling fanatics will find this Robin Hood's Bay holiday cottage to be a fine choice as it is located next to a national cycle route.
The beach is only a mile or so away and the centre of the village is even closer, just a few minutes' walk.
