    • “Absolutely super house, perfect location, very well equipped”

    • “As a family group, we have stayed in Whitby 9 years in a row. This was our second stay at Roseberry and we have already booked for next year. We love it! The house has everything we need and is so spacious and comfortable. We range in age from 65 to almost 2 and all fit in so well. The kitchen with its extra large farmhouse table easily sits 10 or more and has everything you could need. There are two large sitting rooms which means we can use one for the children to spread out with their toys and one can be for the grown ups. Large bedrooms are excellent for family sharing and there are 3 bathrooms plus an extra loo so never any queuing! The little yard outside is a lovely suntrap and excellent for drying the washing (or you can use the inside airer in the utility room). All in all its fantastic.”

    • “We booked Roseberry House for a family holiday. The house had to accommodate 8 adults and two small children. It was fantastic! Not only is the position in Whitby ideal, only a few minutes walk from restaurants, shops, pubs etc, but also from the harbour. The house contained everything we needed, the rooms were large and well furnished,making each room, including the bedrooms extremely comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with more than enough of everything to keep us going. The welcome pack was lovely and really made us feel at home. A great house that we would not hesitate to book again.”

    • “We stayed in Roseberry House for the weekend in April. We were a group of 9, with no youngsters. We found the house to be perfect for us. Lots of space, in a quirky layout meant we could rove around with out getting in each others' way. The bedrooms were spacious and quiet. Even if the others were still up, not a sound disturbed anyone who had retired for the night! 2 great sitting rooms - each with a big flat screen tv would be ideal for a group with teenagers (there's wifi for them too) but we all fitted in both perfectly, so just had to choose which one we felt like sitting in. Everything was clean and well cared for. Don't be intimidated by the warnings on the macerator bathrooms - just use a bit of common sense and it's all fine. If you had young children with you, prams and strollers etc. could be parked in the utility room out of the way - also, a good place for wet wellies or buckets and spades if needs be! And there's a little sunny courtyard at the back for buckets of shells or other beach finds. We didn't do much in the way of "self catering" - but if you were inclined to use the range stove, we're sure you would find every thing you would need. It's in a great location for "down town" Whitby, so eating out is very easy, just a stroll to the harbourside places and a great tea/coffee shop at the bottom of the street. Parking is not really an issue as there are 3 dedicated parking places just over the road, but the house is in such a fab location, we did not use our cars during our stay. All in all this is a great house for large groups of any combination. You can split up into smaller groups if you want to, or stay together in the lounges. There are various configurations of doubles and twins to accommodate a wide range of combinations of families, friends, couples and children. It's handy for everything and won't break the bank. A top house and we would not hesitate to return.”

    • “9 of us (all adults) stayed in Roseberry House for a long weekend. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. The house is very spacious & warm with 2 lounges and a large well equipped kitchen. The owner even left us tea, milk & biscuits for our arrival. The bedrooms are all beautifully decorated and comfortable and there are plenty of toilets & bathrooms to avoid queuing! Only one thing to watch out for is that towels are not provided. The house is situated within easy walking distance of the town, pubs, restaurants & attractions so we didn't move the cars until we left to go home (which we were glad about as the narrow Whitby streets are a bit of a challenge to navigate). Would definitely recommend the house and would love to return.”

    • “Stayed here with friends and family. A great time was had by all. Lovely packets of local biscuits waiting for us on our arrival. The kitchen table is huge and is a great place for a big group to eat, make plans and play the occasional board game! The bedrooms are spacious and vey well decorated. The lounges are big enough for everyone to be accommodated in one room if you want. The location is ideal being close to shops, restaurants and the station. I would highly recommend staying here if you are a large group. Being super picky the two saniflow loos are a little noisy but you could use one of the other two loos! Oh room to park 3 cars, that is a big bonus in Whitby.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed for Easter week at Roseberry House with the family (ages 12-83). The house was wonderful, loads of room, comfy beds, two sitting rooms and a well equipped kitchen. It is situated in a great spot in the town with everything a short walk away. Once there we didn't need the cars at all! Bothams Bakery and Tea Shop is a minute away, 5 mins to the Whale Arch, tea rooms and shops on the doorstep and a short stroll to the Abbey. There is plenty to do for everyone. The house is one of the best we have stayed in over years of Holiday Houses! We had everything we needed, it was warm and comfortable and prettily decorated. We appreciated the welcome gifts and the house was immaculately clean. We are definitely going back!,”

    • “I cannot recommend this accommodation really has the wow factor from the minute you walk through the is tastefully decorated immaculately clean,spacious and well equipped,we were a party of 12 ladies celebrating a friend's birthday and the house was a perfect base in a great central location,with parking for 3 cars ( the owners also provided parking permits for other cars in the party) The owners communicated brilliantly before our stay and the housekeeper had left us tea and biscuits as a lovely welcome gesture..... Don't let the cost put you off as divided between the 12 of us it was probably cheaper than staying in a bed and breakfast and it was lovely to have all that space and to come and go as we wanted......I didn't want to leave ( I did consider squatting lol ) we will definitely book Roseberry House again”

We got a friendly welcome visit to explain all about the house and asked if we required any further help which I though was a nice touch. The house is situated conveniently close to Local Pubs (Which we loved by the way)and shops.We had everything we needed in the house and it was very comfortable. We had a fantastic weekend and would definitely look to book again. We”

    • “There was plenty of space in the house for a large group. Enough seats for everyone, and the bedrooms were lovely, well cared for and airy. They were also very quiet, those retiring earlier than the others were not bothered by those still up. The parking spots opposite were a boon in such a compact little town.”

    Ms Moore, Liverpool, April 2015

    • “A wonderful house for a large family group and convenient location right in town but a quiet square. Bothams Bakers and Teashop a minute away and all the lovely specialist and gift shops. Spotlessly clean with pretty décor, 2 large sitting rooms with great TVs and super comfy beds. Pleasant courtyard for sitting out and eating. A really relaxing holiday.”
