    Mr Huston, Oldham, September 2014

    • “Lots to do in Whitby within easy reach of the cottage - central location meant we didn't need to use our car all week. Cottage was very comfortable and suited our needs. Lots of lovely places to eat and visit, whatever the weather. The top bedroom was particularly lovely, with its views of the Abbey and the sea, the children were reluctant to leave the attic - very cosy!”

    Ms Wood, Watlington, May 2014

    • “Whitby is a lovely town and Amber Cottage is in a great location. The cottage is cosy and very well furnished and equipped. The best thing about our trip to Whitby was the many pubs, coffee shops and bars that welcomed dogs. What more could we ask for.”

    Mrs Howard-smith, RADCLIFFE, March 2014

    • “A lovely setting for a lovely cottage, very cosy and close to all amenities.”

    Mr Wing, Nottingham, March 2014

    • “Beautiful, cosy cottage, very clean and well furnished. Perfectly positioned for instant access to the sea front and main shopping and dining areas. The view from the top bedroom fascinated our 8 year old who loved to be able to see the Abbey and the sea when she woke up!”
