  • "Lovely house."

    Really enjoyed staying here. Lovely bathrooms. Plenty of space. Plenty of kitchen items/ crockery/utensils. Nice enclosed garden for dogs. Long walk down hill into Whitby but I knew that before I went. Only 2 of us but if there was 6 it wouldn’t be a problem. Would defiantly stay here again. Only down side is could have done with more coat hangers! But nice porch area to hang coats and leave Sandy shoes!

  • "We had a wonderful time at Mayfield manor."

    It was our second time staying there and we would definitely stay again. Its a beautiful large house with loads of room. Also very close to everything. We loved being so close to the cinder track for walks and runs in the morning. The house was clean and tidy when we arrived with a lovely bunch of flowers waiting for us Thank you itcwas perfect

  • "We enjoyed our stay but the property needed sprucing up and cleaning more due to dead flies in all windows."

    Freeview was down due to a fire at a transmitter so would recommend getting a smart TV as in this day and age everyone has subscriptions and can access netflix and Disney which is so helpful when having kids.

  • "Despite being assured when I booked the holiday that the house would be clean, unfortunately it wasn’t."

    We couldn’t use the freezer as it was so iced up, I had to wash the fridge and the cutlery drawer before we used them. The oven was filthy so couldn’t use that. The seals on the bottom of the shower doors were filthy with black grime. The house looked generally uncared for. Wallpaper peeling off in the lounge. Door handles scratched. The duvet covers were not fastened. There was a dead wasp in the kitchen window which had obviously been there some time and there was also a dead worm on the lounge carpet in the corner. As far as we could tell all the cleaners had done was hoover the carpets without moving anything and flick a duster round. Fortunately apart from the shower doors the bathrooms were ok.All the window sills needed a good clean, the back yard needed weeding and the furniture jet washing. Given the fact the fact that we have been in lockdown and the property can only have been open a few weeks this house has obviously not been given a deep clean before re-opening. When we had finished unpacking I gave the dog a drink of water, he splashed some on the kitchen floor which I immediately wiped up with clean kitchen paper towel, which, when I looked at it (the kitchen towel) was filthy, obviously the floor hadn’t been washed very well. I really don’t like complaining but having seen negative reviews on trip advisor I raised the questions of cleanliness when I booked the house. Unfortunately I can’t remember the young mans name who made my booking but he was very helpful and contacted the owner who said there had been a problem with the cleaner but this was resolved and the house would be clean. Having been to a cottage in Saltburn last year which was absolutely spotless I booked with confidence. I feel that we should be recompensed in part as we definitely did not receive the quality we paid for and expected. Photographic evidence can be supplied.

  • "We had a truly enjoyable stay in Mayfield Manor."

    Behind a narrow frontage are spacious and comfortable rooms, and the garden is a sun trap during the morning and early afternoon, an ideal place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee.

  • "We recently stayed at Mayfield Manor which exceeded our expectations."

    The pictures do not do it justice as it is nicer than it looks in the pictures. The master bedroom is lovely, and the house was very clean. It is about a 15 minute walk to Whitby, but we didn't find it too bad and at least we could get a parking space. We would definitely go back.

  • "A very well equipped property."

    Comfortable beds, within easy walking distance of the town. Only one gripe, it could do with a deep clean, attention to detail on socket tops, sash windows need cleaning to remove cobwebs and dead flies.

  • "The house was lovely and warm and beds extremely comfortable."

    The only thing I would say which didn't affect our holiday was the house was in need of a proper deep clean to remove cobwebs and the general dustiness . Tops of kitchen cupboards are in desparate need to a wash down. The main thing though was the beds which were very clean and comfortable and as previously stated the house was lovely and warm. We were given a key marked summerhouse but there didn't appear To be a summerhouse. I asked at garden centre where key collected and they appeared oblivious also.

The property

An attractive, mid-terrace Victorian property, situated on the edge of the popular seaside town of Whitby.

Converted from a former manor house, this family-friendly accommodation is perfect for exploring the many attractions of this historic port, but with easy access to the stunning scenery of the North York Moors National Park.

Set over three floors, there is a modern, well-equipped galley-style kitchen, which leads into a very light and spacious sitting room with a large bay window, complete with a padded window seat.

This room feels warm and welcoming as it is enhanced by a gas living-flame fire and comfy seating, with a good selection of games and DVDs for a rainy day.

From the sitting room, there is access to a sheltered, enclosed rear patio; a pleasant spot to enjoy a morning coffee in the sunshine.

Upstairs are three comfortable bedrooms, with the first floor king-size room having the benefit of an en-suite shower and views over the roof tops to the moors beyond.

A twenty minute walk brings you into the heart of this atmospheric town, with a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets and alleyways to meander through, a picturesque harbour and beautiful, long sandy beaches.

With numerous restaurants and quaint tea rooms to sample and lots to visit, including Whitby Abbey, Captain Cook's Museum and Pannett Park, there is something for everyone.

For something a little different, why not partake in an evening's ghost walk, or a whale watching boat trip out to sea.

The surrounding area has plenty to offer, with exhilarating walks along the dramatic coastline, fossil hunting at Runswick Bay and not to be missed, a ride on the famous steam railway from nearby Grosmont.

A superb base for a varied and interesting holiday in the North Yorkshire seaside town of Whitby.
