    “A lovely cottage and we really enjoyed our week.”

    Very nicely positioned too with a good, dog-friendly, pub/restaurant just up the road, an eat-in or takeaway chip shop even closer and a shop, butchers and bakers just down the road too. ...

    Very nicely positioned too with a good, dog-friendly, pub/restaurant just up the road, an eat-in or takeaway chip shop even closer and a shop, butchers and bakers just down the road too. Whitby is just 4 miles away and we found a lovely scenic, cross-country walk there which took us around 90 minutes. We then got the train back from Whitby to Sleights which only takes 9 minutes. (For some reason a return ticket costs just £2.40 whereas one-way is £3!). All in all a lovely break in a lovely cottage.
