  • "Lovely quirky cottage very cosy and comfortable and within walking distance of all amenities."

    We were blessed with fine weather and double glazing to shut out noise of seagulls! Only drawback I would say is the lack of close car parking. I dont mind a walk up and down the many hills of Whitby but something to be aware of for others less able.

    Thank you for your positive feedback, good to hear you were comfortable in the cottage. I agree, there are some hills in Whitby which people less mobile should be aware of. Parking , either on-street or in public car parks is only 5-10 minutes walk away from the cottage and as you say, it is close to all amenities Property Owner

  • "The moment I entered the cottage I felt at home - it had a lovely, comfortable feel."

    It was perfect for me and my greyhound! The cottage was warm and cosy (with freezing temperatures outside). I particularly loved the bathroom - great shower - and the quirky decor. Situated in the centre of town, everything was within an easy walk. And there's a fantastic cafe (Sherlock's) just on the corner! Lovely walks on the coast and the moors: the owner has provided a few suggested routes and we did the Hole of Horcum circular - highly recommended.

  • "This cottage was filthy."

    The kitchen floor was sticky and dirty. Dirty cups, I had to scrub them before we could use them. Dried food in bowls, dirty cutlery, cupboards. Ornaments, light fitting, skirting boards filthy not cleaned in months. Lounge curtains and pole filthy covered in dirt and cobwebs. Fridge not clean, dried milk in draw and shelves look frosty but are grubby. I have photos if you want to proof. Holiday before this on we travelled five hours to Anglesey and it was cancelled 1/2 before we picked up the keys.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. I’m sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy your time at Inglenook Cottage. I always take on board feedback and have reviewed the 31 photos. I accept there were things we could improve on and feedback has been given to the cleaner. However, I would like to put this into context. Your photos focus on a few aspects of the Cottage and it’s not filthy. We can all find dust if we go looking for it or a crumb in a cupboard. A splashed skirting board in the kitchen near the cooker doesn’t mean all skirting board is dirty. We have limited time at change over, we work hard to make the cottage as clean as possible but a dirty bowl or cup in a cupboard can be missed. We do score highly on cleanliness and it’s not usually an issue. If you had contacted me at the beginning of your stay I would have come over and rectified everything. You did stay the full four nights and contacted Sykes after you left. I’m sorry to hear your trip to Anglesey was cancelled but I’m not sure what that has to do with my cottage Property Owner

    Ideal for exploring Whitby and surrounding dales and coastline. Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Ideal for Beer O'clock where we along with our dog were made very welcome. Loved all the mice and other creatures around the Cottage. Parking permits worked well, thank you. Thanks for milk etc to start us off. Carol

    We love going to a place which has character and is cosy, so many places now are modernised and a just blank space, but Inglenook cottage is an authentic cottage with so much character it was a joy to stay in! Right in the centre of town which was lovely and access to shops, the sea front and cafes - a bit tricky for parking but really thankful for parking permits provided.

    Loved the cottage apart from the smell of dogs on the sofa. Had a great time.

    Mandy, so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Inglenook. We fully take on board your feedback about the sofa. Unfortunately the previous guest must have allowed their dog on the sofa. The sofa is leather and is wiped over regularly and vacuumed at each change over, apologies the cleaner didn’t pick up on the odour and all cushion covers have been changed. Property Owner

    Very cosy and clean and with everything you could need. I especially loved the open fire and the quirky little touches around the cottage - beautiful seaside decor and cute ornaments to discover in the rooms. Location-wise, this cottage is absolutely perfect, as it is right in the middle of Whitby but in a peaceful location. There are shops right on the doorstep but you wouldn't know you were in the middle of a bustling town, as the ginnel down which the cottage is located affords some welcome peace and privacy after a busy day out exploring.

  • "Great location of cottage, and directions received were perfect (not the easiest to find as it's down an alley)."

    You can't park directly outside the property as it's down an alley, and can only park on the main road for 1 hour from 9-6(roughly) during the day. From November-February you can park for free 5 minutes away, either up near the whale bone or across the swing bridge. Otherwise all day parking seemed to be at least £9/day at council car parks. The cottage was very cosy, with lots of little ornaments everywhere and extra little touches (e.g. sewing kit in the bedroom, first aid kit, mirror in the kitchen etc.). The cottage was mostly clean, although we did sometimes find some dog hairs when we dropped items behind chairs etc. There were also quite a few drawers with emergency items in (e.g. spare light bulbs, plug extensions) which was great. There was only two of us, but we did find the property quite small so couldn't imagine 4 of us. The table in the living room for eating would have to be pulled out for 4 people to eat, and there wouldn't be much room for plates. The kitchen doesn't really have enough storage space for a lot of food, but there is a co-op and lidl within walking distance, so really you could just buy food as and when you needed it. The cottage itself is also low on storage - there are a lot of hidden areas/locked doors that could potentially be used for extra storage, but weren't available for use whilst we stayed there. The bathroom situation is also a bit peculiar, as the shower is for rinsing of hair/bath only, and so I can only imagine that the cottage is expecting up to 4 people have a bath each day which seems like a lot of trouble. Wasn't a problem for just the two of us though. We did have problems flushing the toilet though several times. As mentioned above, there are shops within walking distance but items to note that you will need are: toilet roll (only provided with one roll), shampoo/shower gel, extra fire wood if you plan on using the fire more than once.

About the location


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 array of activities 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 everyone. 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. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay, rich in heritage, wonders and scenic spots, and in easy 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.
