  • "We had a lovely time at Griers Cabin, clean and comfortable , and near to the town centre."

    Thank you for the wine milk and tea bags ,much appreciated. Had some lovely walks with our dog Millie (Border Terrier).The price was very reasonable too. The only thing to consider if booking Griers Cabin is the steps leading upto it , there's quite afew ( 15 approximately) which is no good for folk with disabilities or the elderly,apart from that I would recommend Griers Cabin.

  • "Towels only one but property is for 2 people, bed had only one pillow per person 2 would have been nice."

    The lack of hot water was a problem instructions not very clear, up to date leaflets would be good tide times for 2020 not good. The decking out side needs fixing. But all in all we enjoyed the experience and will be back the property for its price just need a few little tweaks to be come an excellent property

    Thankyou for your feedback, we have just replaced the mattress with a very good standard one, unfortunately it is down to personal preference. Property Owner

  • "A lovely little cottage in a great location."

    Living room generally clean but lots of mould and dust in bathroom and on windows. Mildew on net curtain in bathroom. Grease on some surfaces in kitchen. No cleaning products, bin liners or toilet roll provided and only one towel.

  • "The cottage is very quaint and for 2 persons it is fine."

    The listing is accurate and we were very happy with our stay. I had little contact with the owners but from the minimal contact we had, find them to be helpful and decent.

  • "Griers Cabin is a little gem which is within easy walking distance of Whitby town centre."

    It is small but has everything you need for a lovely stay and is also dog friendly. There are a few steps to climb to get to the accommodation so you will need to be reasonably fit. We managed to find free parking close to either the top or bottom of the steps. The walk up the steps and onto Whitby Abbey gives wonderful panoramic views of Whitby and beyond.

  • "A lesson in how to furnish a property as cheaply as possible, with no regard to the comfort of your guests."

    Quite obviously everything comes from a house clearance shop. Cuttlery would bend under any pressure it is that cheap & the mattress is obviously the cheapest available. A pity as the location is great for exploring whitby, A few weeks rental profit could transform this to shabby chic instead of shabby cheap.

    Thankyou for your feedback. We have a Guest Book and nearly all the comments are positive & mention what a quiant, comfortable, charming little cottage it is, in a pretty location, everything anyone would want. The mattress is memory foam & it has never been mentioned, however this is something we will look at. As for the cutlery we change it on a regular basis for hygiene reasons so that's no problem. I can reassure you we always consider the comfort of our guests and its our main priority. I would just like to add, the property is a Grade 11 listed fisherman's cottage and we take great pride in presenting it in the manner it deserves. Unfortunately, we cannot please everyone.

  • "The property is as advertised."

    We have been before and it is adequate for our needs. However it is very dark inside and the facilities are somewhat limited. This brings me onto the reason for my ratings. THE PROPERTY IS GROSSLY OVERPRICED. WE HAD 4 NIGHTS LAST YEAR FOR A REASONABLE PRICE. WE HAVE BEEN CHARGED OVER £200 MORE FOR 3 NIGHTS THIS YEAR. WE WILL NOT BE COMING BACK. The owners need to realise that using Sykes Cottages is going to result in very unsatisfied customers. There are lots more agents that charge very reasonable rates.

    Thankyou for your feedback, not any of our Guests have mentioned the property is dark. The fisherman's cottage is Grade 11 listed, in a very desirable area, this is reflected in the price, maybe you would be more suited in a new build. Property Owner

    Parking is a nightmare but once the car is parked there no need to move it again.

  • "Did not stay in the cabin."

    Took one look at bedding. Noticed that this was pointed out by others but obviously owners did not take notice.

    We have had positive feedback about the bedding, it is winter teddy bedding, very cosy and warm. If you had contacted us we would have gladly changed it to lighter bedding. We do change the bedding in summer. Property Owner

  • "Lovely little place, excellent location, Everything you could possibly need is proved."

    The bedroom window handle missing could not be opened. The shaggy quilt cover is not suitable for a rental property as cannot be cleaned properly (hairs etc) we went out straight away and purchased a new bed set. This had already been mentioned, in the guest review book in the cottage. Chocolates & wine a nice touch. Just needs a little more attention to detail. Car parking is a problem in Whitby but we were lucky enough to find an on street parking place, close by. We will recommend as we had a great time In Whitby and loved the quirkyness of the place.

    Thank you for leaving feedback and we glad you enjoyed your stay. We decided on the "shaggy" style bed linen for warmth and comfort but have taken your comments onboard. You're welcome back anytime!- Jason Property Owner

An ideal retreat for a couple wanting to explore this part of Yorkshire, the apartment is within reach of many beaches dotted along The Cleveland Way as well as being close to the North York Moors National Park.

On arrival, you'll be happy to find on-street parking, where you can leave your vehicle before wandering through the stable door into this charming abode.

After a busy day of exploring the sights, kick back and relax in the reclining sofa with your favourite beverage in hand as you watch a show on the TV.

After relaxing for a while, continue to the kitchen, a space that is perfect for creating easy meals, courtesy of the combination microwave/oven and electric hob.

These meals can be tucked into at the dining table for two or brought out to the private decking during the sunnier months.

When night falls, freshen up in the shower room's walk-in shower before retreating to the snug double bedroom.

Another outdoor space the property has access to is a shared garden, which can be reached by a set of steps and offers a lovely space to sit out with your morning coffee ahead of a day filled with fun in the sun and sand.

Stroll along the River Esk to find a range of eateries and shops to suit your needs, along with access to a wealth of attractions and activities to experience, from the sights of Whitby Abbey and Whitby Sea Front to the tours around the Captain Cook Memorial Museum and climbs up the 199 Steps.
