  • "Had a wonderful stay at St Hilda’s, very comfortable and fully equipped house."

    Garden was a wee haven for breakfast in the sun and loved all the homely touches including the record, book and games collection. The house is so well situated for town centre, Pannett Park and the beach. Street parking was busy but we found plenty parking at the leisure centre, a few minutes walk from house plus an area to exercise the dog before day trips. Ideal.

  • "This is a beautiful property, with everything so well thought out."

    The furnishings are exceptional. The main bed is very comfortable, and the room so lovely. It is very central, and you can walk everywhere from the house. The owners left several "goodies", which were lovely, and introduced us to the local bakery. It cannot be bettered, but am almost reluctant to say just how wonderful our stay was, as I hope to book again! Many thanks to Sykes who left the keys and parking permits as promised. And the staff are really friendly.

  • "The property is beautifully furnished and maintained."

    We really enjoyed our stay, just a couple of niggles really. I hadn't realised that there wasn't a dishwasher but this was my fault, I think you need one when on holiday. The shower was just too small, not very practical. Shame the log burner wasn't in the lounge where you can watch tv. Also there wasn't any toilet roll when we arrived. Overall though a lovely property in a fabulous location.

    The staff in your Whitby branch are so helpful and caring I will be recommending them to family and friends as they go the extra mile for their customers.

  • "Our visit to 20a Back St Hilda’s Terrace has been extra special as the house belonged to my grandparents back in the late 1970’s!"

    We love coming to Whitby it’s our happy place and very special to us. This particular trip has been been very nostalgic and emotional being able to spend time in this beautiful period house with memories of weekends and holidays spent there as a child and it hasn’t changed much at all. Thank you for a wonderful weekend. We will definitely be coming back soon!

    Hilda’s was perfect! It started with a warm welcome when we picked up our keys and the unexpected and treat filled holiday welcome bag . The standard of accommodation and service from Yorkshire Coastal Cottages exceeded our expectations when we first visited in 2018 and was the reason we returned to this accommodation this year.
