    • “We were a group of 5 and this cottage was perfect for us. We know Whitby very well and this place is centrally located but off the main street meaning it is situated in a quiet spot and we weren't disturbed by other Goth revellers during the wee hours. The kitchen is well equipped and with 2 bathrooms this place is very comfortable and was spotless for our visit. There are lots of quirky features in the house, low beams on the top floor and a elf size recess halfway up the staircase - which amused us no end. Also check out the small doorway in the kitchen that leads to...? Very nice would definitely stay again.”

    Mr Jackson, Thirsk, March 2014

    • “The house is in a great location, a short stroll to the beach. It was very clean and well equipped, kitchen was spotless. Beds and sofa were comfy, lovely gas fire in the front room, very snug on those chilly evenings. Bathrooms were great with excellent power shower over the bath downstairs. Quirky touches to the house, low beams upstairs, interesting alcove area over the stairs! Dog friendly house also. Great location for nearby facilities, lots of quirky shops in the Whitby town centre. We certainly had a very restful time at the Fireman's Rest. Will definitely return.”

The ancient fishing port of Whitby lies at the mouth of the River Esk and is ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Yorkshire, with its superb coastline and close proximity to the spectacular North York Moors. Whitby is a charming and atmospheric town of winding streets and hidden alleys, with a picturesque harbour, safe sandy beaches and of course the Abbey, reached by the famous 199 steps.
