  • "A beautiful clean, modern, practical house, attention to detail was excellent."

    Lovely furnishings and fluffy towels. The heating was on when we arrived which was very welcome and little goodies left out. All information needed was to hand and the owners left their contact details if needed. Excellent location to all the Hornsea amenities and very close to the fantastic award winning Whiteheads Fish & Chip Restaurant/takeaway. We would definitely stay here again and will be highly recommending this property to our friends and family. Thank you again for a lovely stay.

  • "What a lovely surprise when we arrived no drama key was in key safe as per our instructions and the place was 100% as described lovely and inviting from the moment you open the front door This has to be one of the best we have ever rented the rooms are all well presented with a modern decoration and the theme is carried through the whole house."

    Every room is set out so inviting with lovely touches to make you feel that the owner has set it out as if it was for themselves and not just a money making operation. The kitchen was well presented and everything you need for your stay with lots of extras not often found in holiday lets. This also continues outside into the well presented garden with covered seating area with access to the converted garage for the fully equipped laundry with everything you could possibly need included. the bedrooms all well presented with comfortable beds decorated to a high standard and the whole place is spotlessly clean with lovely extras like a little showhouse. Our whole party of five had the best stay we could have ever wished for. A big thank you to the owners for a very memorable stay please keep up the good work you could not possibly have made our stay any better. Scotty Milton Keynes

  • "Absolutely fantastic house."

    We had a wonderful time at the Whyte Retreat. The house is spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped. We couldn't fault it in any way. Hornsea is a charming and friendly place with a lovely clean beach. We would absolutely love to return to Hornsea, and especially the Whyte Retreat. Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your beautiful house.

  • "Lovely house with everything that we needed."

    We stay in Hornsea quite frequently and this is the best accommodation we have stayed in so far! We were only disappointed that the weather wasn’t better as we would have liked to use the lovely garden and outdoor seating area but it wasn’t warm enough. Maybe next time!
