  • "We were really pleased with the accommodation."

    It was very well equipped, clean, comfortable and very close to the centre although the hilly aspects of Whitby were rather daunting. The welcome pack was a really nice touch and our dog Chester gave a big woof for the dog biscuits. The garden was secure and the patio area was very pleasant. The weather was also good! We really enjoyed our stay.

    The welcome pack was very much appreciated even thought of our dog Dexter with Bonios. The property was lovely and clean and there was clear instructions on how to use the appliances, what day bins where to be emptied and local amenities available. Dexter loved the enclosed garden, the local area is lovely and quiet. Very much a lovely property Thank you!

    Easy access in to Whitby and surrounding area. After a long drive, it was lovely to arrive to a warm cosy, clean, fresh accommodation. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well stocked with all you would need. The rear garden has good access from the sitting room with a narrow, small step down, which isn't obvious initially, although, there is good fencing and seemed secure for our little dog. We visited in January but in the summer we feel the garden will be a lovely sun trap, with garden table and chairs provided to enjoy meals outside on sunny days. Nicola and Tracy were easily contacted and responded quickly with any queries. Thank you both for letting us stay in your lovely bungalow.

A nice touch was the bread, milk and biscuits, box of fudge and even doggy biscuits supplied. Bed a bit firm for me but spotless again. Lovely fluffy towels and hot water made for a comfy stay. I would definitely recommend staying here. It was a good 20 minute walk into Whitby but we were lazy and had a cab £5 each way which saved searching for a parking space in crowded Whitby and meant we could have a drink too!

A clean water bowl and new towel was also laid out for him :) We had plenty of room and the garden was lovely and secure to sit out in. Only negative point for me was next door neighbours had the builders in digging up their garden towards the end of the week and they were pretty noisy throwing concrete in their van, covered my car in dust. But, as we were out most of the mornings, it wasn’t too bad. That aside, highly recommend staying here. Short walk in to Whitby (20 mins mostly downhill), or parking is £5.50 next to the Co-Op for 4 hours.

  • "This bungalow is situated on a quiet estate 10 mins quick walk, or 15 mins from the centre of Whitby."

    The parking is great with spaces for 2 cars. The property itself is extremely well look after and very clean. The enclosed garden if you have a dog with seating area is especially nice and handy. There is a lovely woodland walk out the back of the estate. The bungalow was well kitted out with everything in the kitchen you would need and a loaf, some milk and dog biscuits on arrival kept it special. The bedrooms are comfortable, with lovely bedding and good quality furniture. The heating is easy to manage with constant supply of hot water. A must have visit 10 mins away in the car is Robin Hoods Bay - delightful little fishing village with amazing beach. I have nothing to say that was wrong about this place - however if you are not able to walk the 10-15 mins into town up and down the bank it may be difficult parking your car everyday in the centre. We would definitely return to this property- thank you

  • "We had a wonderful time in Arucaria House."

    It has everything you need in it. It was very clean, warm and comfortable. Hamish loved his buscuit bones and bowl of water that was left for him and enjoyed the big enclosed garden. We enjoyed the starter pack of milk, bread, tea, coffee, biscuits, sugar etc We walked most day into Whitby and my 80 year old mum even walked up the hill back to the house. We walked along to Sandsend a few times had coffee and mum caught the bus back to Whitby. Robin Hoods Bay is a short drive away which is very nice. We also went to Goathland which was the setting for Heartbeat. This wasn't very far away either. Arucaria House is situated in a very quiet estate just out of town 10 minutes to Whitby. Thanks to the owners for a lovely stay.

  • "We had a very enjoyable break in Whitby."

    Araucaria House is in a perfect spot for some lovely walks in the countryside, almost on the doorstep, and near enough to stroll into town centre for breakfast and shopping. Whitby and the surrounding area just has everything we need to wind down and enjoy. We are so glad to have found this little pearl of a holiday home. It was super clean, really well equipped (everything easy to use with clear user friendly instructions). The beds were really comfy and as fresh as a daisy without the strong smell of fabric conditioner some places have, a mountain of fluffy white towels and lashings of hot water too. There is good sized, secure fenced garden that feels very private and lovely to relax in the evening and there was off road parking in this quiet little street. We loved everything about Araucaria House and will be staying there again, it was totally relaxing. A big thank you to the owner, Tracy, who could not have been kinder or more helpful.

    We arrived at the cottage and opened the door to a beautiful house well decorated through out nice and clean and fresh. Very well fitted out with everything you need. When looking in the kitchen A fresh loaf was waiting on us and a pint of milk it the fridge. The owners of this house had thought of everything to even a jar off dog biscuits. We enjoyed our stay in Whitby And found a very nice place called Robin Hood's Bay. Overall nothing negative to say and we would not hesitate to use Sykes Holiday Cottages again.

    Sooner or later the portable mirror will be dropped in the bathroom. Also the toilet seat in the bathroom is very unstable. Access through the patio doors to the patio could be difficult as the step is very narrow and the steps are quite high.
