  • "Lovely cottage with every possible thing you would ever need!"

    Lovely comfy beds. Great walk along the viaduct into Whitby, you could hear the steam train but sadly couldn’t see it due to the trees. Parking was tight due to high season.

  • "This is the 2nd time of staying in this property with the first being September 2022 when equipment appeared to be quite new, it continues to be well equipped but other residents have not taken as much care of cooking equipment as we did unfortunately, however it was fine to use."

    On arrival we could not gain entry into the property and on ringing the owner we found that we had been given the wrong PIN number to access the key, just the last number was wrong so we were fine on being given the correct number. Cleanliness was not as good as last time in respect of the kitchen and downstairs toilet floors, otherwise there were no issues. We were able to use the cushions from the shed this time on the picnic table, we didn't get the garden furniture out but the cushions were useful. We were pleased that the glass shelf has been removed from the bathroom as it was not obvious that it was sloping until things rolled off into the wash basin. There is still no grab rail to assist in getting in and out of the bath in order to use the shower, this is necessary for older people and those of us with limited mobility. Overall the property is in a lovely quiet setting with amble parking for residents and an easy walk into Whitby and we continue to be pleased with the cottage.

  • "The cleanest property we have stayed in."

    The kitchen was exceptional, normally we wash everything first but not this time. Only one grumble for us was the main bed which was very hard but we did have the option of the other beds which when pressing them had some bounce. Rained all day on one of our days but was a delight to stay in especially with the reclining sofa.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the cottage was well equipped and well situated within easy walking into Whitby and shops quite close by."

    The area is quiet and welcoming. The cottage is well furnished and the decor is lovely with nice colour schemes and, the wall hangings are a nice touch. We found that there was a smell in the downstairs toilet towards the end of the week and despite cleaning the toilet and floor it continued, however we had turned off the air freshener as it caused an allergic reaction to my partner. Overall our stay was pleasant and restful, it was a lovely week away and we will be pleased to return.

  • "Nice modern and convenient base to explore the area."

    House was clean and very well presented. We was a little surprised bath towels were not provided. To be fair the earlier email did mention this but the listing on Sykes website said to leave used towels in the bath, so a bit confusing. Only other point, would have been nice to have a welcome pack with some basics for when we arrived, milk / tea and coffee. Other than everything else was perfect and an enjoyable stay.

    Excellent week at the cottage which, with the weather being so good, made this a good base to walk into Whitby & visit other local sites easily by car

  • "Great location; rural outlook yet 5 mins drive from sainsbury, b&m and aldi and 20 mins walk into Whitby."

    Lots of nearby walks. Amazingly well equipped kitchen - so nice to find reasonably sharp kitchen knives and a steel! If needing a place to stay near Whitby I wouldn't even bother looking elsewhere.

  • "Lovely place to stay."

    Cottage was very clean and we didn’t even feel we needed to wipe around anywhere when we got there. Everything we needed was there. Parking was no problem at all. Communication was good with owner. Great views, quiet park and 5 min drive to Whitby. Walking to Whitby was 30 mins with a dog. This was nice as it was away from the roads etc. 2 small negatives; 1. No recycling options for the bins. We separated everything but then realised we didn’t need to. 2. With this being a dog friendly property it would be nice to have a small fence on the decking so we could keep the door open when it was warm. Even if this was retractable, that would have been a bonus. These things wouldn’t put us off booking again and we knew about the decking before. Still a 5 star place to stay.

    Many thanks for your comments Mark, much appreciated. In response to your 2 observations the refuse collection is governed by the local council who classify these properties as commercial and therefore all refuse is collected together and then sorted at their depot. On you other point we understand what you are saying but the owners of these properties are not allowed to construct fencing across the back of the property. We would look forward to hosting you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "Vey clean and comfortable cottage but we were a bit puzzled at the lack of any recycling facilities."

    There was only 1 very small bin in the kitchen which had to hold all the rubbish including everything we would normally have recycled at home.other than that the cottage was very well equipped

    I really appreciate your comments. Please note that the local council doesn't cater for recycling collections from these premises. All refuse should be placed inside the large wheelie bins provided in the shed in the center of the car park for weekly collection and recycling offsite. Property Owner

  • "The property is very well situated - easy to walk down into Whitby by the old viaduct, and centrally placed to explore the coast and the moors."

    It is very comfortable and was very clean. It seems a bit mean not to provide bath towels (although unlike other properties I've stayed in they did provide plenty of loo rolls, tea towels and dish washer tablets). Other issue was more annoying which was the really poor TV reception, particularly the BBC channels which made it virtually unwatchable.

  • "Lovely location in a quiet rural area with amazing setting of Larpool Viaduct."

    1.5 mile / 40 minute walk into Whitby (with kids and a puppy) down the Cinder Trail. We loved that we could bring our dog and with the hard floors and nature of the furnishings we felt happy for her to be downstairs. Beds nice and comfy. View from the bedrooms at the front and the back are gorgeous! The kitchen was well equipped, washing machine a bonus and plenty of extras like a drying rack and iron and ironing board. The Roku TV was great as it meant you can sign into your own Netflix or iplayer accounts. Lovely outdoor deck area. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well prepared by the lovely Jill. Great comms from the owner Jane too. The only teeny tiny negative was in the middle of August with multiple cars at other cottages we found parking problematic and often had to find parking a short walk away. Would recommend to anyone and hope to be back one day :-)

The property

Enjoying a scenic position in view of the striking Larpool Viaduct is Esk View, a bright and airy mid-terrace cottage lying on the outskirts of Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast.

Perfect for a family of five, Esk View rests next the River Esk and is just over a mile from the heart of Whitby.

Make your way into the property, passing the handy cloakroom to the right, before entering the lovely sitting room, made homely with two plush sofas to relax on and a 43" Smart TV.

Move through to the kitchen/diner when the group is feeling peckish and set about making use of the excellent range of appliances here, complete with a dishwasher and washing machine, before serving up a family meal at the dining table which sits by the patio doors.

Open these doors up in the summer months to bring a gentle breeze in while you tuck in, or take your food and drinks outside to the fabulous decked area with outdoor furniture to use and shared lawns for the children and dog to play on.

Following a busy day, head upstairs to rest in one of the three delightful bedrooms, with the master double room enjoying a balcony with seating, perfect for sipping a morning coffee while getting lost in a book.

The remaining bedrooms comprise of a twin room and a single, while all rooms are served by the family bathroom, complete with a bath and overhead shower so you can freshen up however you prefer.

The location of Esk View is just a riverside stroll away from the centre of Whitby or a quick car journey, so you can easily access all the delights of this popular coastal location whilst still enjoying a retreat away from the crowds.

Discover plenty of well-established restaurants and pubs to dine and drink in, along with shops and cafés lining the historic, quaint streets.

Make your way up the famous 199 Steps up to the spooky ruins of Whitby Abbey which stands dramatically on the headland, affording stunning coastal views, with the option to extend your walk along the Cleveland Way which runs down the length of the coast to Scarborough.

Another way to reach the seaside resort of Scarborough is via the Cinder Track, a traffic free cycling and walking trail following the 18-route of a disused railway line, offering a perfect way to get active and explore the area with your loved ones.

Once in Scarborough, visit Scarborough Castle and enjoy the rides at Luna Park on the seafront, with two beaches to choose from and the beautiful Peasholm Park offering a scenic picnic spot.

Enjoy walks and bike rides throughout the Esk Valley and the North York Moors National Park, or soak up the scenery without moving a muscle by taking a trip on the North York Moors Railway, a heritage line offering scenic journeys within vintage steam trains.

Whatever you decide to do, make Esk View your North York Moors retreat on a family holiday to remember.
