  • "It was perfect everything you needed was there for a perfect stay."

    From the Halloween decorations to the carved mice throughout. It was really nice that a carton of milk was left in the fridge so we could have a hot drink on arrival. Location perfect with a car park 5 minutes away

  • "Fantastic wee cottage, so quaint and quirky."

    Very cosy with central heating and fabulous fireplace. Comfortably fitted our party of 2 adults and a teenager. Brilliant location within 10 minutes walk of all the pubs and restaurants and plenty of butchers, bakers etc to eat in too. Lovely cafe next door called Sherlocks with a fab escape room on its top floor. Definitely recommend this lovely wee house

    So appreciated in this day & age to beable to find a place in the centre of the town full of heart & cheer - where we could unwind & connect with a real fishing town in a real Yorkshire cottage - would love to return ❤

  • "The cottage was lovely."

    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.

  • "TV reception was not always good, picture often 'broke up, Bath looked good, but having the shower over the bath was not ideal as not much room to move without the shower curtain getting in the way."

    Heated towel-rail is too close to the wall, making it very difficult to hang towels on it. (These are not criticisms, just observations, as we really enjoyed our stay at Inglenook Cottage!)

  • "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.

    Having a shower to rinse your hair or rinse out the bath is a waste of time. The cottage was spotlessly clean and comfortable.

    The beds were comfortable and we all slept well. We liked the mouse theme and added a mouse ornament. The only drawback was the request not to have a stand up shower as in hot weather a shower is refreshing.

The property

A delightful stone terraced cottage hidden away in one of the quaint narrow yards in the centre of the historic town of Whitby. Originally an old fisherman's property, the cottage appeals to anyone wanting a traditional seaside holiday with all the amenities on the doorstep. Set over three floors, this warm and welcoming cottage retains much character with beamed ceilings, stripped pine doors and winding cottage stairs. Furnished with a homely feel, the cosy sitting room boasts the original inglenook fireplace, hosting an inviting open fire, whilst the small, galley kitchen offers a Belfast sink and wooden worktops. Within a couple of minutes' walk are local pubs, interesting independent shops, excellent restaurants and tasty tea rooms. Explore the cobbled streets down to the harbour, enjoy the wonderful, long sandy beaches or take a bracing cliff top walk from Whitby Abbey. With the dramatic coastline and the spectacular North York Moors to discover, this cottage provides a good base, all year round.
