    Very homely. Fresh flowers, bread, fruit and milk. Decorated for Christmas. Would love to go back. Loved the other little extras, including the earplugs for the early train, although we didn't need them as we are early risers.

    Ideally situated just 5mins walk from town. 10 -15 min walk to beach. Lovely homemade bread for us and fresh flowers make you feel very welcome. This is the best property we've had through Sykes and we've had about 15 in last 3 years.

  • ""WOW"..."

    . this cottage was amazing from start to finish. On arrival we went into the cottage which smelt amazing, then were welcomed with milk in the fridge, fruit in the bowl, a lovely homemade loaf of bread and a jar of treats to help ourselves to for our four-legged friend. Kitchen is fully equipped with all you need for self catering and even had tea, coffee, sugar, oils, salt, pepper, vinegar etc. Lovely set out of the cottage with living upstairs and sleeping down, beds were comfy and bedding was lovely and crisp and the towels smelt amazing, in bedside drawers were earplugs in a lovely organza bag.. For those who don't want disturbing by the morning train. Fantastic cleaning cupboard filled with all you need, it is a real home from home experience and really well kitted out. Loved watching the steam trains and people just going about their day sat out in the flagged garden and all they asked of us was.... to water the plants, which was a pleasure to do for such a fantastic stay. Local facilities 5 mins walk away.

    However the owners of this house must be congratulated for their attention to detail. It’s the small things; hotel quality coat hangers, a decent iron, effective hair dryer, sharp knives and for the first time in many years of self catering a steamer. Well done, spotlessly clean and exceptionally welcoming. Thank you

  • "When we arrived we walked into a lovely clean, safe and warm environment and the house stayed warm all the week we were there."

    The kitchen was very well equipped, it made a change to find that all the knives in the knife block were nice and sharp and a sharpener in the drawer to keep them that way, all too often that is not the case also plenty of pots, pans and glasses etc. All in all we spent a very pleasant week in Whitby at this house, close enough to the centre to be handy for shops and restaurants but far enough away to be nice and quiet. I would highly recommend this property.

    Everything you need and more. Welcome pack, dog biscuit, Neflix, WiFi, ear plugs (for trains and seagulls). Neither bothered us. Great local walks and near to the the town and harbour. Very very clean and cosy. The train was fascinating to see but not very frequent. The owners went out of there way to help with a local purchase. Parking is a bonus in Whitby as well. We had a lovely week and would stay in All Aboard again given the opportunity.

About the location

WHITBY

Robin Hood's Bay 5.5 miles; Scarborough 19.3 miles; Pickering 23 miles; Guisborough 21.5 miles.

The seaside town and port of Whitby lies at the mouth of the River Esk in the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire. Ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Yorkshire, the local area hosts an abundance of activity so you can be sure to get the best out of both the countryside and the coast. From the nearby North York Moors to its Blue Flag beaches, there's something here for every interest and time of year. Amongst its many attractions, Whitby holds a charming atmosphere, home to winding streets and hidden alleys, where you can find a wide selection of eateries and shops scattered amongst them. Take a trip to the picturesque harbour and lighthouse to watch the sun set, or get involved in some whale watching or a coastal cruise to watch the creatures up close. Climb the famous 199 steps to the Whitby Abbey to immerse yourself with history, or visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum presenting historical and ethnographic exhibition about Cook himself. Hosting an abundance of leisure facilities, opportunities to explore the natural lands, and plenty of coastal delights, Whitby offers something for everyone. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay full of heritage wonders and scenic spots, and in reach of the bustling towns of Scarborough and Middlesbrough, Whitby is a prime location for exploring all of the delights that Yorkshire has to offer.
