  • "Excellent base for exploring the area and only a short stroll into the town centre."

    Cottage had all we needed for a 3 night break; comfortable, warm and in a quiet location; the direction instructions could do with being updated though. Would definitely return.

  • "We had a lovely time at Cedars cottage, we were only there for 4 days, it was clean, and close to town center and the bay."

    It had clean bedding, bed was very comfy, nice fresh towels, could benefit from a hand towel in the bathroom, shower was nice and hot. Thanks for the milk and t bags, nice touch. Would go back defo.. Now the few thing that I think need addressed, the fire starter pack is a non starter, we got 4 logs and 1 fire lighter, ?, no kindling, so this fire was never going to work, I have a log burner and believe me you cannot start a log burner with 4 logs and 1 fire lighter. Unless you got Rambo type skills, The number 1 seems to feature a lot in this cottage, only 1 T towel, it has a dishwasher but only 1 soap tablet, which was nicely displayed on the kitchen bench. We had to use the T towel a lot, as it was hard decision as to when you use your one tablet, you ask to put the washer on the night before we leave, don’t think they would be clean with no tablet as we did use the 1 that was left . ? There is only 1 bulb in the ceiling light which has three bulb fittings. So its very dim of night. Also for anyone who is going, take a 4 plug extension, as there is only 1 three pin plug in the sitting room available to charge mob, laptops, I pads etc. Last thing, the new sink needs silicone round it, I washed the dishes, and the water seeped over the side and dripped into the cupboard underneath and soaked the plates etc. Apart from them few things we had a lovely time. Ps, need to adjust the directions for people, you drive into a brand new housing estate, we had to ring cos the directions don't mention the right hand turn down an ash track which is 50 yards on the right-hand side as soon as you enter the new estate.

  • "Absolutely love this cottage, so peaceful, cosy and relaxing."

    You felt off grid, but you could walk into the town within 10 mins, and the same again to the Abbey and the coastal paths. The cottage is well equipped, garden is big enough for the dogs, but could just do with a mini makeover, to match the lovely interior of the cottage, Great starter kit for the log burner. Will definately be back.

    Cosy and comfortable, it was a great base for exploring the wonderful coast line and moors. Location of the property was perfect for us, a short but pleasant walk to the abbey and town. Would definitely book again!

  • "The cottage is very comfortable and well-placed."

    It made a wonderful quiet base for exploring a heavingly busy Whitby, being especially handy for walking to the abbey (and the brewhouse nextdoor to it), the coastal path and Saltwick Bay. We'll very happily come back! There were a few niggles. Everything was dusty and there were a lot of cobwebs. The kitchen could do with a sieve or colander for draining pasta, a breadknife, a second chopping board (the enormous bread board had already split almost all the way through when we arrived), and maybe a few glasses that aren't enormous. The wood for the stove mentioned in the folder was missing from the little shed, and there weren't any instructions for any devices, so we had to google how to use the induction hob. We didn't bother with the dishwasher, but it wasn't clear that much of the crockery would have fitted into it. Overall a lovely stay, but it felt a bit casual in terms of setup.

  • "From a first glance, Cedar View is lovely."

    After settling in, you start to notice the uncleanliness and the tired furniture. The shower head is disgusting, you breathe and you feel like the bed will collapse, the garden is very tired. And the cleaner needs to clean and not give just a wipe over. The property has such potential, but unfortunately, we will not be returning.

  • "The property was a pleasant property in close proximity to the centre of Whitby and the Abbey."

    The furnishings were quite tired and uncomfortable, but that said we didn't visit Whitby to spend too much time in the property.

  • "The cottage was in quiet location, with views of the Abbey from the parking space."

    The sofa was to uncomfortable for my partner to sit so he had to sit in one of our deck chairs in the evening, it had no support. The garden had not been look after, the grass was very long and the little patio was covered in weeds so we could not sit outside at all. The allocated parking space had a tree that needed pruning, consequently it covered our car in sticky sap that was impossible to remove without cleaning the car. For these reasons we wouldn’t recommend the cottage and would not book a return stay.

    The old access road is shown on the Sykes website so it was a bit confusing. There is a small sign which we missed first time round!

    It was everything I could have wished for and more. Such a cosy little cottage tucked away in the countryside yet still so close to Whitby Town. The owners were so kind and thoughtful, from the complimentary Biscuits when we arrived to one of them (I cannot remember his name) even driving my boyfriend to pick up supplies to temporarily fix a puncture on the front tyre of his car until we could get it in to a garage. We will 1000% be returning in the near future, we loved it so much, I’ve even recommended it to my parents and they are looking to come and stay around October time. If you are looking to visit Whitby and are looking for a place to stay then this is it!!

Only a small bin in the kitchen which we could have done with a bigger one during a long stay. Bed was very comfortable, bathroom clean and no issues with hot water or water pressure. Overall a very lovely stay in this comfortable cottage.

  • "The cottage was very charming and close to the main town to walk but far enough away to be peaceful If you choose to stay here make sure you are well stocked with logs for the burner as nothing is provided despite being advertised and the central heating is controlled remotely which seemed to be on in the day but not when needed."

    Apart from that the cottage contained everything you would need for a short stay.

  • "Lovely self contained cottage that’s about a 15/20 minute walk to the Abbey or down to the Quayside ."

    Plenty of hot water & the place warms up ok after a while & the log burner was great to have as well (take a supply of logs). The lane to the cottage is a bit uneven in places but you do get an allocated parking space for one vehicle which is a bonus for Whitby. We didn’t want to be in the main touristy areas of the town which is why we picked Cedar View. Would come back again no issues.

  • "Cedar Cottage was a gorgeous, cosy little cottage that was perfect for two people."

    It was well located for the Abbey and it was a 20 minute or so walk into town. Apart from the few niggles below it was very comfortable. The niggles were: a woodburner but no wood or fuel to light it with, no basic supplies (apart from teabags and biscuits), the hot water was in short supply (ok for showers but not enough to run the bath), and finally, the road leading to the cottage was poorly maintained and very dark (no lighting) which made arriving at night a challenge (we ended up with a slow puncture). This place is gorgeous and would be better in the summer I think.
