Guest Reviews


    • “High standards in a beautiful but convenient location”

    • “Very impressive modern accommodation which has been furnished/finished to a high standard eg smeg appliances and branded crockery etc. There are a lot of cottages to choose from at Riverside or at Captain Cooks Haven next door but having studied all the pictures we thought Cricket Cottage looked the most attractive and were not disappointed. Twenty minutes walk to the centre of Whitby but also benefits from being in a grassy, low density area - we were there with a small child who loved being able to play in the communal area with sheep, rabbits and horses over the hedge.”

    • “We had a lovely relaxing week, really enjoyed it, it was very warm, cosy and beautifully maintained. Would certainly go again and the location was very good, there were nice views at the front and at the rear. Wish I was still there.”

    • “Cricket Cottage is far enough away from the town centre to be quiet in the evenings, but close enough to walk to it. Beautiful views from all windows. Everywhere is dog friendly.”
