  • "Property was lovely, beds were very comfortable only issues was there was a lot of dust, hairs on floor in bathroom and cobwebs everywhere, parking was hit and miss during the day due to workmen working on another property nearby but it was fine in the evening, we would stop again but the cleaners need to do a better clean before changeover and the kitchen window needs cleaning inside."

  • "Lovely property and great location, immaculate toilets, bedding , towels and very well equipped kitchen however small attention to detail lets Fern house down dust webs and under sofas needed cleaning and curtains in front room window had mould on them ."

    This would not stop me from staying again but the owners need to be aware if they are paying a fee for cleaners .Outside space was fantastic for outside dining.Overall a lovely stay .

  • "What a beautiful property, everything about it was fabulous quality, the kitchen had everything you would need."

    10 mins walk into the centre of Whitby. Plenty of living space for 6 adults. Could do with an outside light at the front door, so you are able to see where you are putting the key. We have booked for next year

  • "Beautiful house and the location is fab."

    5 mins to west cliffe sea front and about 15 minutes walk to town one way and 15 minutes to a lovely pub called the White House. Lovely pub and food and the setting is beautiful. Amazing sunsets. Will definitely book again if available. Only negative is the late check in and early check out. 16:30 & 09:30. And would benefit from new garden furniture to take advantage of the south facing garden.

  • "Great house for a holiday and just a short walk to the beaches and town."

    . Facilities are very good and added bonus of easy parking and good outside space to sit . We liked the fact that it is situated on the A174 enabling us to catch the 4x buses either south into the town , Robin Hood's Bay and Scarborough or North to Staithes. A real bonus for golden oldies!

  • "Fern Cottage was beautifully furnished, the decor was minimal and tasteful and the house was warm."

    We had good weather so we were also able to use the outside seating/garden area, which was a bonus. We had everything we would want. The house is in a good location for every location in Whitby. The only not criticism I would say which is not a criticism really is, please make the arrival time earlier and the exit time later on the property. Although, I phoned the owner who was extremely helpful and let us go in earlier than expected and also on leaving day we could leave our bags and had another half day in Whitby. Which was extremely good and helpful, we were so grateful. We will be booking this cottage again. If there was a lockup area where bags could be left as our transport from West Yorkshire was by minibus, this would also be very helpful.

The property

This semi-detached cottage lies just a stroll away from the waterfront and seaside amenities of Whitby, on the fringes of the North York Moors.

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle, yet within easy reach of the fine attractions of the town centre, choose to make the most of this well-appointed getaway with your family or a group of friends.

You will be impressed by the spacious interior, which is not immediately apparent from the outside, yet allows you to relax and unwind with your loved ones with all the homely comforts of a beautifully appointed holiday home.

Feel welcomed into the sitting room with the large bay window allowing plenty of natural light to highlight the quality of the furnishings.

Sink into one of the inviting, plump sofas and tune into the Smart TV or stream your favourite songs through the sound bar.

Head under the archway and into the dining room to enjoy a delicious meal together, with a full feast cooked up in the fully equipped kitchen next door.

Once you are fully relaxed after a day of adventure, head upstairs to find three bedrooms; the master suite boasts a super-king-size bed and adjoining en-suite, while the king-size double and twin are served by the family bathroom.

Spend a sun-filled afternoon in the enclosed rear garden with a chilled drink in hand and ooze in the coastal atmosphere.

Spend a day at the beach, eating fish and chips or a game of pitch & put mini golf, then climb the renowned 199 stairs to the medieval abbey while admiring stunning coastline views from the summit.

Take a stroll along the harbour, board a boat and go whale watching, or go for a sunset stroll along the pier to the lighthouse.

The town centre also boasts a wide selection of pubs, shops, restaurants, cafes and local galleries.

Six miles away is Robin Hood's Bay, a broad, sweeping bay surrounded by breathtaking cliffs and stunning moorland landscape.

There, walkers may enjoy beach and cliff-top strolls, and prominent sights include the museum and the Old Coastguard Station, which is maintained by the National Trust.

For any lovers of Bram Stoker an audio tour "In the footsteps of Bram Stoker" or the Dracula's Experience will spark your interest.

After your numerous experiences in this intriguing region of Yorkshire, this little home is the ideal place to return to.
