  • "A gem of a property, right in the middle of Whitby, on the quieter side of the river."

    This property has been designed to a hight and tasteful standard. Spacious bedrooms, very comfortable firm beds (much more to my level of comfort) , a warm and welcome living area and a fantastic rainfall shower. The internet was superb, you could even retreat to 5 Ivy Yard and work there comfortable. Like all rentals you find some quirks, the only gripe we had was some of the light bulbs in one of the ceiling lights didn’t work, there weren’t any spare bin bags and an empty roll of foil left in the drawer. The property was very clean and tidy upon entering. I would say to the owner or cleaners, please double check cutlery and plates that guests have cleaned, there were some questionable ‘cleaned’ items but know this isn’t reflected on the owner or cleaners. There is no parking on the property, but on 3/4 of the road there is free parking on Church Street but it’s a free for all and very popular. We had no issues but at peak times it would be difficult. Further up, getting closer to Whitby there is 40 mins free parking restrictions or a small pay and display car park.

  • "Let's start with the positive as it was a good stay, location of the cottage is really good and only 20mins walk to the town."

    The facilities in cottage was really good as you've got everything you need, beds are comfy, shower is good and WiFi was pretty quick at 25md download. Now the negative which starts at outside the property, the moss on the ground was slippy when wet and needs bringing up, the property next door is an eyesore. Inside the kitchen bin lid doesn't close and smell could disperse. Final point which was annoying and the check out, it was 09.50 and the cleaner was early waiting to get in, check out is 10am and they should arrive after that time allowing you to leave.

  • "Amazing little cottage, it had everything you needed and very clean."

    Excellent location and street parking was available. Only thing it stated was it had a dishwasher and it doesn’t. Will definitely stop here again.

  • "The cottage was as described and provided a very nice base for a holiday in whitby ."

    There was no customer handbook so you had to work things out for yourself ie WiFi and heating . The main problem in Whitby is finding a parking space and the cost of it . Council sites charge £9 per day . The property is listed on several letting sites , some of which specifically mention the provision of parking scratch cards which enable free parking on specified zones and are frequently used by owners as they are a great way to enhance their letting prospects and only cost them £2 for any 4 days of parking . I was expecting a couple of scratch cards to be in the property , but they were not provided . I contacted Sykes who asked the owner for feedback which was not forthcoming . So please be quite sure that when you are booking this property that no parking assistance is provided .

  • "Lovely cottage we would definitely stay again it was situated perfect close to all of the amenities also it’s a shame it has no parking we were extremely lucky as there was free parking along the road outside and managed to get a space and didn’t move, the bus station is close so we used the bus a lot."

  • "The yard outside is a little scruffy but once inside this is a lovely little old cottage."

    It is clean and comfortable and has a modern bathroom and kitchen. Not much of a view from the property, Can just about see some boats on the river from the top bedroom window It is just five minutes walk beside the river to the centre of Whitby

  • "Very small and dark cottage accessed via a yard that was very dark and untidy with weeds growing around doorway and step resembling more of a building site."

    Courtyard furniture was dirty and covered in seagull droppings . property was very noisy at night due to seagulls nesting on roof Bedrooms were comfortable and well appointed. Parking near the property was very difficult with roadside and nearest car park always full There were no instructions available for the facilities Wi-Fi code etc.
