  • "Excellent place for a holiday with friends."

    Great location a few minutes from the train station and good parking if you drive. Clean, comfortable, as advertised. A great base for a lovely holiday. No complaints!

  • "Beautiful house in a really convenient location."

    Everything you needed was provided! The beds were really comfortable and rooms were spacious. My only tiny issue was the towels are quite small. If you like a big bath sheet then take your own!

  • "The cottage is surprisingly spacious, comfortable, well decorated with a seaside theme and had everything we needed for our stay."

    We had plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 children. Had a great week exploring Whitby, the cottage is 5 minutes walk down the hill to the centre. Would highly recommend.

  • "Lovely comfortable cottage in a great location (steep hill to get to it but that’s the same anywhere in Whitby)."

    Newly decorated and very clean. Great touch having some biscuits, bubbles and some milk waiting for us. Will definitely book again when returning to Whitby.

    This made it patchy. Other than that it was fabulous.

  • "Easy booking process and very reasonable price."

    Location good, 10 minute walk down hill to the centre of Whitby. Cottage was spotless and very welcome touches like coat hooks on the back of doors and a mirror in all bedrooms. Standard things you may think but not all places have them. 2 three seater settees bit cramped for 6 adults in the lounge but overall superb.

  • "Parking in the street is very limited."

    It’s a steep hill to house so if park at bottom car park older people may struggle. The house is brilliant, spotless, spacious and has everything you need with lovely decoration. The owners left information and a bottle of bubbly which was very generous of them thanks. We would definitely go back x
