    “Booking the holiday was straightforward with clear information about when payments would be taken and information about arriving at the cottage and collecting keys etc.”


    The holiday cottage itself was well located, good for local walks, visiting the local seaside attractions, and near a local pub. It was located in a quiet area and the view was spectacular. The cleanliness of the cottage was just OK, but could have been better (high level areas were dusty with some cobwebs), and the living room furniture and carpet was worn and dated. The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of crockery, pots and pans, and coped with cooking a Christmas dinner for 8. The WiFi was poor and mostly not usable , so we relied on our mobile phone for access to the internet etc. Overall we enjoyed our holiday at this cottage , but would look elsewhere when looking to stay in the area next time.

About the location


Aislaby 1 mile; Sleights 1 mile; Whitby 3 miles; Sandsend 5 miles.

The village of Aislaby is located in the beautiful rolling countryside of the Esk Valley, overlooking Sleights and just three miles from Whitby.

A small rural village, quiet and secluded, Aislaby is a thriving community of pretty sandstone cottages clustered around a main street and a thriving community served by the old church and Forge Inn.

By cycling, walking, or driving in the surrounding area, guests can visit Egton's famous church of St Hedda with its painted ceiling, walk through the beautiful Arncliffe Woods, discover the historic North Yorkshire Moors Railway at Grosmont, or explore the old mill on the banks of the River Esk.

The location is also ideal for exploring the spectacular North York Moors and the many small fishing villages and resort towns of this beautiful coastline.

Nearby Whitby, once the home of Captain James Cook, is a charming, atmospheric town of winding streets and hidden alleys, with a picturesque harbour, safe sandy beaches, a broad range of eateries and award-winning fish and chips, and of course the Abbey, which inspired Bram Stoker, reached by the famous 199 steps.

For culture lovers, a day trip to the city of York, with its famous minster, the Jorvik Viking Centre, and National Railway Museum will be a fantastic addition to your break.
