  • "Clean and well equipped."

    Parking a bonus also easy flat walk into town. The bed In single bedroom is only suitable for a child as it had two thin mattress on top of each other, we were a party of three adults,the bed settee is positioned in the hall with a front door onto the street and a cold room. Also why only a bath towel each,even one night stay in hotels provide bath and hand towels,fortunately we had taken our own. Otherwise a good place to stay.

    Thanks for your feedback. For information the hand towels were on the top of the bathroom cabinet, I found them unused. The room at the front I found that at previous visitor had turned the radiator down so temperature wasn't a problem. I leave my phone number with every visitor, its a shame you didn't call me, we could have resolved your concerns and given you a nicer stay. I'm always happy to help. Property Owner

    The cottage was well equipped it had everything you would need, it was spotlessly clean. It’s not far to walk into town it’s about 10 minuets depending how quick you walk. The parking is a big plus your car is safe away from the road. We couldn’t fault anything.

    Ideally placed on the harbour side with private parking and 5 minute walk to the old town. Once again we were there in a heatwave . The cottage stays beautifully cool as the lounge does not get the sun always comfortable.i It is as good as air conditioning. Much appreciated by my little dog.

  • "Generally speaking the accommodation was comfortable and the location was good, however it was spoilt by one or two lapses of attention to detail that took some of the gloss off."

    There were no washing m/c tablets in the house and only 1 dishwasher tablet could be found. We stocked up with these at Sainsbury's. Also no spare refuse sacks were provided. The house accommodates 5 in total (but 3 of us were there that week) but these essentials were not provided as expected. We manged with just the one for household and 1 for recycling. There was no handwash in the kitchen only an empty dispenser. The "old" rusty roasting dishes were still there and should have been removed.The new ones were available. We second guessed how to work the cooker despite one of the knobs falling off! We repaired the fry pan's floppy handle and the window catch in the master bedroom and generally managed any other issues that presented themselves during our stay

    Thankyou for reviewing our home and giving it 88 out of 100. We have a welcome book and advise every customer that if you need anything or clarification we are there to help. We only live 2 miles away so its no problem. We can advise the location of the spare bin bags and other items which were available in the house. We leave 2 or3 dish washer tablets to get you going .If this got missed I offer my apologies. We do provide tea bags, fresh milk and flowers. We don't provide washing machine powder. Cooker Knob cover replacement has been actioned. We have a great location for visiting Whitby. Pubs and Fish and Chip shop very close 2/3 minute walk. Only 7 minute walk along the river to Whitby centre. Dedicated parking spare Property Owner

  • "As you already have my complaint about the listing and the position of the cottage you should be aware of my feelings."

    Total lies as to its position and then you try and get out of it by saying I should have looked at the map, which I did, it still does not give an accurate position of that cottage only the development. I understand you have numerous complaints against you and you find dealing with complaints difficult to take.

    Thankyou for your feedback. I'm really surprised to read this. We met on several occasions while you were stopping with us and at no time did you express any dissatisfaction with the property. It seems to me that your complaint is with Sykes Cottages over the listing accuracy. Just for information we have had over 200 lets with Sykes and to the best of my knowledge nobody has flagged the accuracy of the listing as a problem. Regards, Andy C Property Owner

  • "A nice property in a very convenient position with the very important parking."

    Kitchen was well equipped although I was very disappointed with the condition of the baking trays. I have marked it down a little because it was difficult to flush the toilet and sometimes the toilet door stuck and it was hard to open. A chair cushion was stained too. Families with children need to take care as the hot water is very hot. Great if you want a hot bath but a little dangerous if you want to wash your hands in the bathroom or have a shower. We would have liked more towels as we had only 2 bath and 1 hand towel. The tea towels were stained and one smelled a bit stale. Two was adequate though. Having said all that we would definitely return. Booking was easy and everything went smoothly. Thank you.

    Thanks for your feedback. We encourage all guests to call us if they need anything, anything at all. If I can rectify any problems, I will, I live only 10 minutes away. Its a real shame you didn't as I could have sorted some of your comments out. The water temperature is adjustable on the boiler, some guest like it hot and some not. Quick fix. Extra towels , quick fix. Toilet has been checked and is Ok. New baking trays added to existing ones. We hope you come and visit us again, we aim to make your stay enjoyable.

  • "Another excellent stay at Abraham's Cottage."

    Perfectly situated in Whitby - short walk into town, private parking, an ideal base, within easy reach of shops, public transport and dog friendly. The property is very well appointed and spacious. The kitchen is very well equipped, as is the little utility room. Spoilt for choice with television channels! Unfortunately, the weather wasn't particularly kind but to be expected in late December. Oh . . . . . . . and MANY thanks for the wine, chocs and the thoughtful milk!! We highly recommend Abraham's Cottage.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay."

    It was very clean and felt very secure in the complex of holiday homes. Great parking. Everything you could wish for at hand. Arrived early so we could know where the cottage was for latter. We were spotted by a relative of the owner and he insisted we left the car rather than find a car park, which was great. I only held back on one star, due to the road noise. I am a very lite sleeper and maybe others would not have a problem.

    Thankyou for your kind feedback. Just for information the road outside that leads down to the swing bridge was a little busier than normal due to roadworks on the junction A171. These are temporary works which made some people divert down our road. We will be back to normal by end of the week. Property Owner

  • "Couldn't really fault this place, not that I would want to anyway."

    I contacted the owner Andy in advance of my arrival and he was extremely helpful and accommodating. Went for a couple of days' walking on the Cleveland Way/Cinder Track with a pal and we both had an excellent time in Whitby. After a long walk, I have to say that the shower in the house is absolutely brilliant - really powerful to wash away the aches and pains! Location is great, just a few minutes' walk from the town centre but far enough not to be disturbed by the hustle and bustle. The parking space is a bonus as it looks like Whitby could be awkward when busy. Saw a couple of reviews moaning about the proximity of the boatyard but I honestly had no issue with any noise etc. The rear of the house backs onto the street heading into the town centre, but again it wasn't a problem. Would absolutely stay here again if I should be in the area.

    Thank you for your kind comments. We really appreciate them and makes us work harder for our customers experience. Property Owner

  • "Abraham’s Cottage was great."

    Comfortable, cosy and spotlessly clean and well presented. The little Christmas tree was a nice touch as well. The cottage has a combi boiler, heating was excellent and there was plentiful hot water. The living room was comfortable and the ground floor of the cottage is very spacious. The little extra sitting room was a great place for our dog’s basket and the utility area was handy for all of his towels, leads, food etc. We didn’t use the front bedroom as we found the fitted wardrobes over the bed claustrophobic. Maybe that is just us! The back bedroom was very pleasant. The kitchen was pretty well equipped and there is plenty of worktop space. Overall there was plenty of crockery and cups. We were a wee bit surprised that there wasn’t a teapot (in Yorkshire?!?) and the only coffee making facility was a tiny cafetière. These would make nice additions. A four slice toaster would also have been nice....especially if there were more than two of you. Just a couple of little details, otherwise the facilities were very good indeed. It’s just a short walk into the centre of Whitby and there are pubs and a great fish and chip shop within just a couple of minutes walk. The allocated parking space was a huge bonus. We have a VW Camper Van and often allocated parking is either height restricted or only suitable for a small car so it was great to find a full size unrestricted space for our use. A very nice cottage in a fantastic location.

The property

Nestled in the centre of the historic seaside town of Whitby, situated on the edge of the harbour, is this stunning end-of-terrace cottage.

Abrahams Cottage provides an exceptional modern interior with a light decor and laminate flooring, giving the property a warm and welcoming feeling.

Entering the property, you will be greeted to a spacious sitting room, with plenty of furniture to curl up on with your loved ones and enjoy some quality family time, whilst the electric fire keeps you warm.

Walk through to the second reception room with sofa bed (which can be made up on request) ideal for quiet reading time, then through to the utility area, housing a dishwasher and washing machine, so you barely have to lift a finger during your trip.

The adjacent kitchen/diner provides all the modern appliances you could need to cook up a storm for the whole family, whilst the dining area is the perfect spot for family gatherings.

Resting on the first floor are three well-presented bedrooms, consisting of two doubles and one single bed, all with plush beds, plenty of storage space and lovely views across the town and harbour.

The family bathroom has an elegant fitted bath and shower over, so you can decide how best to prepare for your day.

You couldn't be better placed for exploring the wonderful history inside this seaside town, including the famous ruined Whitby Abbey.

Perched on a clifftop, this former abbey was said to have been the inspiration for Dracula and the home of the first known English poet, boasting a wealth of history and stunning views.

If country walks are your thing, then visit Pannett Park, where you can explore the themed gardens and the local history museum whilst your four-legged friend can run and stretch their legs.

Whitby beach is also popular with the locals and tourists, perfect for spending the afternoon relaxing on the soft sands, or swimming in the clear waters.

Challenge yourself to the famous 199 steps and see if you can make it to the top to find the sweeping views across the town and distant coastline.

Return to your traditional Yorkshire cottage for a relaxing evening with your loved ones.
