    Everything thought of. Welcome pack . Good location near to the cinder track. Off road parking this is a bonus in Whitby.

  • "We had a lovely time at Sunnybrae."

    The house was clean, the beds very comfortable, nice large kitchen with plenty of utensils. The balcony in the bedroom was a suntrap, nice to sit in the morning with a cup of tea or coffee. Its about a 30 minute steady walk into Whitby along the cinder path. We had a very enjoyable stay and we had perfect weather. We will be booking again.

  • "Excellent cottage which clean, well thought out and organised."

    Great location by the Larpool Viaduct and Cinder track which made access into Whitby and area so easy and minimised car usage. Wonderful holiday helped by a week of non stop sunshine - even in March! We will be back. Thank you for a great stay

  • "After my initial silliness in going to the wrong address, quickly corrected by the owners."

    The accommodation was superb. Extremely clean with all the facilities you could need. The welcome pack of bread, milk and biscuits was fully appreciated. The beds were comfy and the house was warm. It was great to be able to access the Cinder path to walk into Whitby. Many thanks to our hosts the Johnson's for a first class stay. We would be happy to stay again and fully recommend.

    Thank you for the great feedback, we very much appreciate the lovely clean and tidy way you left Sunnybrae. Glad you had a great stay and we’d love to have you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "There were no recycling facilities at the site or nearby."

    This was surprising and disappointing (though not a criticism of the accommodation). The design of the house means the living room does not get much natural light, but otherwise excellent inside and out. Would highly recommend.

  • "Fab holiday property in a great location about a mile from Whitby along a very good path called the cinder track."

    Sunnybrae was absolutely spotless and had plenty of room for two couples. Very well equipped and we were left a very welcome food pack. If you are lucky enough to stay here we would recommend eating at The Four Seasons restaurant, the Penny Hedge and the Forge Inn for Sunday lunch. The only recommendations we would have is that the although we didn’t have too many problems parking markings would really help as some people are very inconsiderate and do not park correctly. There is also no recycling which in these times cannot believe the local council allows this. We brought ours home !!! We would definitely book this property again and have recommended it to our family and friends.

  • "Had a lovely week at Sunnybrae."

    The accommodation was very clean and had everything we needed. We had some nice walks into Whitby along the Cinder Path ( only a mile ) and going the other way on the track there is a lovely pub ( The Windmill ). Good views of the river and the steam trains going from Pickering into Whitby.

    It's in a great location for walking and is just a short walk outside Whitby. There is parking for all properties in the complex. Was surprised that the local council doesn't supply a recycling facility, we had to bring ours home! We would certainly stay here again. Loved it!

  • "As a family of 6(4 adults, 16yr and 9yr old) we found Sunnybrae to be the perfect base for a visit to Whitby and the surrounding areas."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The kitchen is modern and has everything you need, Bedrooms are comfortable our 9yr old used the put up bed and found it to be just as comfortable as any other bed and there's plenty of wardrobe space in all 3. The bathroom is big and the shower is very good(decent water pressure) we had plenty of towels provided for our stay. The cottage is one of around 14/15 properties sharing parking space for approx 18 vehicles and during our stay we always found a space for our van. We had a brilliant weekend at Sunnybrae and would not hesitate booking a break there again.

  • "It felt even better than expected from seeing the site pictures once we arrived there, and what a lovely place to walk into after our journey."

    Loved all the facilities in the house and thought it such a welcoming place. The scenery was stunning looking around outside and immediately felt we were on a real holiday, ready to explore the area. Had a really good chance being in this location to go for plenty of walks along the cinder path and elsewhere, and to get to know Whitby, plus get a taste for North Yorkshire in general. It was great going on the steam train on the North York Moors Railway, and being by the river Esk it afforded us the excitement of seeing the trains go past. Loved every minute of our time there have to say. Thumbs up.

Amongst its many attractions, Whitby holds a charming atmosphere, home to winding streets and hidden alleys, where you can find a wide selection of eateries and shops scattered amongst them. Take a trip to the picturesque harbour and lighthouse to watch the sun set, or get involved in some whale watching or a coastal cruise to watch the creatures up close.
