  • "I understand that everyone’s standards are different , but sadly , the cleanliness was an issue ."

    There where cobwebs down the back of the bedside cabinet . I have photos . The shower drain needed cleaning out , the water wouldn’t drain away . The day it rained all day , we thought we would watch a dvd , the player doesn’t work , it freezes and won’t continue . Sadly , the bed was so uncomfortable, we have decided to cut our stay short and go home today (Thursday) . The clothes line in the garden is very dirty and in a bad state of repair ……these are not expensive to replace . The site position is lovely , and we have booked to come back , but in one of the newer cottages …..this one is tired and needs some upgrading .

  • "The accommodation was very good - it reflected the fee we paid."

    Every utensil you could wish for was there and all equipment was spotless. HOWEVER, the tv was a disgrace in that the Freeview only showed around 10 channels. We returned it twice but this did nothing. We contacted the telephone number given and were told that there had been a few complaints about this and that she would send someone round, which she did, straight away. The man who called was not a tv engineer and he said "We do not get any more Freeview programmes than this in Yorkshire!" How ridiculous. This really spoilt the holiday because we had to resort to viewing programmes off a small tablet which our grandson had (fortunately) taken with him to play games on. This, of course, caused problems because there were times when we all wanted the tablet. We spoke to the owner too but he said he had not been informed of this problem and agreed that it was not good enough. Please sort this out for following guests. A £20 aerial would probably do the trick. Some sort of refund would be applicable here, don't you think.

  • "Exceeded all expectations, cottage had all the facilities you could wish for, cleanliness was amazing, possibly the best we’ve had in a rental especially when you take into consideration pets are welcome."

    The only slight negative for me was the bed was a bit uncomfortable, but was fine for my wife, so that’s a personal choice. The cottage is on a working farm and caravan site but neither is a problem. The views of the NYM from the private enclosed garden are fantastic and if you are fortunate enough to be able to eat outside like us throughout our stay is the icing on the cake. Oh, and the owner, who lives on site is very friendly without intruding, would definitely recommend.

  • "We have stayed at Broadings Cottage 4 times over the past 5 years, the owners are very welcoming and the cottage is excellent, now with new furniture, the views across the valley are breathtaking, the bathroom is going to be updated in the very near future, which is a bit dated, but has excellent shower pressure which we find OK."

    So once again a very enjoyable relaxing stay at Broadings, nothing to fault whatsoever, 25 minute walk into Whitby and if if you need transport back the Park & Ride service runs every 15 minutes from Whitby bus station, 2 minutes across the road and you can have a quiet relaxing drink at The Stables at Cross Butts which is a 10 minute walk back to the cottage, all in all excellent.

  • "First class all round."

    I rang as requested 48 hrs before and asked if we came early would we be able to park up anywhere the owner let us park up on the cottages drive. The only gripe we had is we forgot to fasten the gate up at night so when we got up someone had let their dog off on the grass so we had dog mess to clean up wasn,t good as we had taken our 7 yr old granddaughter with us. We didn't want for anything ,even had biscuits waiting for us to enjoy with our cuppa .Would have been nice to have a four slot toaster instead of a two one as electric grill quite slow, also a grab rail or handle would be good in bath for the less mobile. Please note these are not complaints just suggestions .Well we enjoyed our stay here so much we booked for next year while we were there.A big thankyou to the owners and see you next year.

    Would have expected a hairdryer... memo to self to take one with me in future. Very helpful owner. Great situation for getting out and about. Ideal for two or for a family but not really for two couples Bathroom could do with an update.. it is fine and shower is fantastic but the washbasin is small and and is set rather low. Would not stop me going again though. Perhaps something for future development. Great for the dogs, fully enclosed garden area and able to walk them up the fields. Really enjoyed our week

Broadings Farm Cottages

Resting on the outskirts of the popular resort of Whitby in North Yorkshire is this group of four charming cottages. Boasting distant sea views as well of views of the iconic abbey, Broading Farm Cottages is a collection of four properties offering something for everyone. Two of these properties boast a more traditional feel with character features such as wooden beams and brick fireplaces, while two are much more contemporary with a more minimal style and neutral décor. Three of the four properties are all on the ground floor, making them suitable for those with mobility issues, while the larger property, Whalebone Cottage is suited to a large family, sleeping eight guests. The properties lie just a mile from the centre of Whitby, where you can wander its winding cobbled streets and hidden alleys, discovering a wide selection of eateries, gift shops, restaurants and pubs scattered amongst them. Take a walk along the beach and stop off to enjoy some delicious fish and chips, or go for a swim on a warmer day. Climb the iconic 199 steps to Whitby Abbey and take in the picturesque coastal views from the top. Learn more about the history of the town by visiting the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, and hop on a boat out to sea to enjoy whale watching.
