  • "We could not fault the property, it was clean, there are plenty of glasses, cutlery and plates."

    We like having two bathrooms, which are roomy. We could have done with another tray and bedside table in the double bedroom. The sofa and chairs are comfy. The property is in a great location for walkers and not too far from Whitby. We have stayed in Ships Wheel Cottage twice now. We will definitely stay there again.

    Thankyou so much for the lovely words Hope to see you soon Kind regards Margaret and dave Property Owner

  • "An amazing week away for our baby's first holiday."

    The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed, it really was a home from home. Plenty of space for our little family and dog. My obly criticisms would be, it wasn't 10/10 for cleanliness, the small shower head was incredibly mouldy, there was a pork scratching underneath the sofa (which our dog hunted out!) and under the master bed was very dusty. Everything else was very clean. The listing isn't clear as to whether there is a washing machine and different sites give conflicting information. I did check that there was a communal laundry due to having a small baby and needing to do plenty of washes, but to find one in the cottage was fantastic! The single beds roll around a lot on the castors, we didn't sleep in that room but if small children were to it could be quite dangerous. Thanks for a fab week!

    The owners were fantastic when we had a small issue during our stay and got it sorted ASAP. I would thoroughly recommend the cottage to others and I'm sure we'll be back.

    The cottage was well worth the money it was a lovely place the only down side was there were no sun chairs to sit in the sun as it was a real sun trap and all there is to sit on is an uncomfortable bench but overall we couldn’t fault it

  • "The accommodation was first class and was everything we had hoped for."

    The only aspect to be aware of is the location in regards to the beach. The cottage is approx 30-40 min walk to the beach, this aspect didn’t bother us in the slightest as we really enjoy walking. If we return to Whitby we will definitely use the cottages again

  • "Beautiful cottage & location."

    Just on the outskirts of Whitby, but walkable if the weather is good & you enjoy walking. Perhaps clearer signage to the rear cottages as a little confusing when first entering the site alongside the paths to the touring pitches. Stunning finish to the cottages & very well equipped. Would definitely recommend & stay again in future.

    We could stay here permanently. The outside space is also clean and secure, when the weather warms up. Be brilliant to sit out on the patio area, to eat and drink. The farm and surrounding land is lovely and well kept. The location of the site is perfect all round. We will be back again. Thank you.

    An enjoyable week at the Cottage however arriving after dark the Cottage could have been signed better as we needed to ask where it was at the site office! The cottage was very modern, clean and warm. No store cupboard essentials left in the property which was no issue for us as we always take everything needed, however this may catch some people unawares!! Thank you for an enjoyable stay!

    The cottage was like new with high end appliances and very comfortable beds. The location is excellent for visiting other locations, and if you have a dog everything has been thought of to ensure the dog can also enjoy itself. All in all, a great experience.

  • "The cottage is in a perfect location, about 25 minutes walk/ 5 min drive into Whitby, so it was close but not really busy."

    It is on a main road but we didn't find the road noise an issue. The photos on the website don't do the cottage justice- it is decorated to perfection inside, spotlessly clean (and I am picky when it comes to this) and is well equipped with comfy beds/ sofa and dishwasher, smart tv, washing machine etc. The garden area is dog friendly and is properly fenced in, our dog had a great holiday. The only suggestion would make would be some comfier furniture in the garden and some more basics eg. salt, oil, cleaning spray etc. We would love to stay here again!

  • "The cottage sleeps 4, but only had one tray."

    Had plenty of cutlery, glasses etc. We could have done with another toilet roll. On the plus side, the cottage is well placed just outside of Whitby and only 20 minute walk into the town. We had a lovely stay and did plenty of walking in the area along the many public footpaths and coastal paths. Welcome pack was good. We had to ask how to get into Whitby and the reception lady gave us a map with instructions, it would have been better if the map was readily available in the cottage. We could have done with a TV in the bedroom, but managed without. Would recommend this cottage and definitely stay there again.
