  • "First impressions - tucked away from the main road so nice and quiet."

    Nice little sun trap in the courtyard . Very nicely decorated and furnished , we felt at home as soon as we walked in . There was a lovely welcome basket and a card from the owner, Dee Dee , with a contact number should we need anything. The cottage was well equipped and didn’t lack for anything . The bed was huge and very comfortable . The beautiful , soft white towels were gorgeous. I would definitely recommend Witts end cottage for a relaxing stay .

    Parking in coop ok but walking to and fro with luggage a pain. Very clean and tidy tv needs an upgrade kept freezing and switching off on occasion. Generally a nice area but no plans to revisit

  • "Witts End is an excellent place to stay, I liked it that much I came back again."

    It has everything you need and more. Would definitely recommend to any couple or a lone person.. although I had no issues I contacted the landlord with a query once and immediately it was sorted, so that’s another added bonus. Great area, great place, and hidden away so no traffic driving by or people passing the window staring in..

  • "We had a wonderful NY stay at Wit’s End cottage in Marske."

    The cottage itself was a lovely little bolt hole for myself, my husband & our dog Vinny. The welcome hamper of wine, chocolate, crisps and fresh bread was a lovely touch (there was even milk in the fridge) and there was even a welcome pack for Vinny …the location was perfect for us and we had no issues parking on the coop car park which is literally opposite the little cobbled lane of Prospect Place. Beautiful big bedroom with king sized bed and lovely bed linen, fluffy towels…it really was all wonderful. There is no safe outside space for the dog to go outside alone (but they do tell you this) but we had no problem just popping his lead on last thing at night and first thing in the morning for a quick run round the corner. Frankie the owners daughter was super friendly and helpful. All in all we had a wonderful time, we will definitely go back and would highly recommend this cottage and this area. Thank you for a lovely break.

  • "A nicely presented property."

    It was clean and welcoming. We all felt very comfortable and relaxed there. The cars being parked at the Co op was a bit awkward but no problem. A great base for exploring the local area.

  • "It was just simply wonderful."

    A relaxing and welcoming space. Owner had thought of everything, particularly for our pooch Rocky who settled better than anywhere else we have taken him. For the humans, a really nice welcome basket and there were even hair bobbles and cotton wool in the bathroom. The bed is so wonderfully comfortable and the area felt really safe even at midnight whilst walking Rocky. Beaches are beautiful. You should go - if you're at your Wits end, you won't be when you leave here!

  • "This was one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in."

    Every thing was in excellent condition and superbly presented on arrival Wine, beer and pack of crisps in a welcome basket plus a fresh loaf of bread and milk. Bed really was very comfortable in a large bedroom. Only small ( very small ) down side was the car parking which was in the local Co-op car park. Not far to walk to the cottage and the car seemed safe enough. The cottage is a the end of vary narrow passage / terrace which is just possible to get the car down depending on the size of car. Overall this was a great place to stay and I would recommended it.

  • "The cottage is lovely, really tastefully renovated, well equipped with everything you could need."

    It was scrupulously clean when we arrived and there were masks, hand sanitiser and wipes provided, so it felt very safe in the current circumstances. It is tucked away in a quiet walkway in the middle of the village, very close to shops, cafes and pubs and a 10 minute walk to the impressive beach. It is a great base for exploring North Yorkshire. The owner provided flowers and a welcome hamper. Note that the cottage is on a road not safe for vehicles, so parking is in a supermarket car park opposite the terrace. There was always space, so no problem.

  • "Something wrong with the heating,the cottage was cold."

    The boiler kept comming on and off but radiators were cold. Nice cottage but the boiler in the bedroom is a no no. Electric shower was leaking from the case, not the hose, this was a bit worrying. Cottage was ok and if the heating has a timer fitted to turn it off at night,that would be a good option,definitely a new shower needed,boiler & heating checked .

    Thank you for your comments, we do take all feedback onboard, we are sorry that you experienced issue with the heating and the shower, had we been aware at the time we would have been more than happy to come and put the heating on a timer for you and resolve any issues for you. We we have now added a new shower to the property. Thank you again for your feedback. Property Owner
