  • "Nice property, very clean, well equipped with off road parking which is a bonus in Whitby."

    Reviewed by Lynn4.7Oct 2023

  • "Overall very good but with regard to the property I think a hard copy of all the relevant info would be helpful."

    Also the rear outside area is not fully enclosed so could be a problem for some dog owners ( an external hook for a dog leash in that area would help ).

  • "Not dog friendly at all."

    Couldn’t safely let dog out. Property had no tea pot and the kettle and toaster need replacing. Very expensive for what was provided. Having previously stayed in other properties in Whitby wouldn’t return here. Not as good. Please note very dark inside and quite cool even though it was summer.

    Lots of walks from the house & good parking area. My only criticism is that there wasn't any instructions for appliances which made using the washing machine, microwave etc difficult but that was the only problem.

  • "Lovely holiday."

    Plenty of space for 4 adults and a dog. A few instruction cards would help with kitchen appliances. Cleaner could do with wiping skirting boards and cleaning glass doors and windows. Had to clean kitchen and living room due to dirty marks showing up with the sun shining. Also hoover not the best for Cleaning stairs. But we still had a lovely holiday and we would definitely recommend the house.

    House comfy and very clean with lovely sized bedrooms, as we were 4 adults and 2 children it worked well, 6 adults would be a squeeze as not enough sofa space. Good communication from owners. Parking for 2 cars a big bonus for Whitby. Would definitely recommend as a base.

    Great location for walking the dog on the cinder trail & into town. Powerful shower in the en-suite which is great. All the facilities you could want, big tv’s to all the rooms. The place needs an outside tap to wash the dogs paws, they get pretty muddy coming of the trail in winter. We will definitely return to this place though, spot on. Thank you for our stay.

  • "Hawthorn Cottage was a lovely property, well-located as a base from which to explore Whitby."

    It was exceptionally clean and very well-equipped, with nice welcome-treats and very good supplies of holiday essentials. Our party’s small car fitted ok on the little drive and the larger car was parked in one of the communal places. We enjoyed a walk on the nearby Cinder Track and also strolled into Whitby: downhill on the way in, uphill on the way back! We had our small dog with us (allowed, as per the description). It did not state that the outdoor areas were enclosed, and they definitely weren’t: the front was open and the back had a low, open fence which small dogs could get through. Although the location was very pleasant, there is a very large building development underway right behind the property. There was no work taking place during New Year when we stayed, but it could be a little noisy at other times. We personally found the double beds rather hard and really struggled with the size of the under the counter sized fridge with freezer compartment when our Sainsbury’s delivery for six adults arrived! Overall though, a lovely property. Thank you.

  • "This is the first time we have stayed in Yorkshire and we certainly made the right choice with Hawthorn."

    The house is ideally located for walking into Whitby, the cinder trail, and neighbouring village. Hawthorn was well maintained, clean, quiet and had all the facilities one could ask for and more, in fact some rooms we never used. Nearby Whitby has much to offer and we took advantage of the local bus service, which was excellent and the North Yorkshire Railway, a little nostalgic travelling on both the steam railway and a diesel from the past. I don't normally write reviews, but felt in this case it justified the review as Hawthorn was one of the better properties we have stayed in , the weather was good and local facilities were excellent. We will certainly be returning! (A plus side was our dog was accepted wherever we went and the local people were not only friendly but helpful.)

  • "The house is beautifully presented and exceeded our expectations."

    Very well appointed and although we took our own condiments and washing machine liquid it was already supplied by the owner which is an added luxury. The house is situated in a quiet modern estate and although no views of Whitby it was lovely and quite so we felt very well rested. It’s a good 10 minute walk into Town and we enjoyed the walk in which is all downhill. It is a fairly steep walk back up again but again we enjoyed that. We did get a taxi one evening and it was only £5 and there are lots available. We took our dog Belle and she loved it too. Underfloor heating downstairs was a real bonus as the weather was a little cool and made the house so warm and cosy. On another note I had advised we were there to celebrate my 50th Birthday and on entering the house I found a bottle of Prosecco, Balloon & Birthday Card which I thought was a lovely touch. There were also fresh flowers in the house which was another lovely touch. We loved our stay so much we have booked again for next year. I can’t recommend this house enough. The owners should feel very proud.
