  • "Had a fantastic weekend away, the property was outstanding couldn’t fault anything."

    Was close to town, but still peaceful where we was situated. The house was super clean and everything there we needed for a weekend away loved it

  • "Lovely house, feels like a home."

    Had everything we needed. Well places to explore both Whitby and also the surrounding moors. Stunning views across Whitby and the Abbey from the lounge. Just be aware that the parking is first come first served, we did always find a space nearby. However, due to the location there were often days we didn’t use the car as we could walk into Whitby and also walk off along the coastal path. Also very close to the train station where the North Yorkshire Railway terminates.

  • "Well located house with lots of space."

    Clean and well maintained. Everything worked. Furnishings somewhat basic and not altogether well planned. For example the heavy coffee tables in both sitting rooms were out of reach of people sitting down. But overall a pleasant place to stay.

  • "Fantastic house, perfect for large family get togethers."

    Perhaps the best large accommodation we have stayed in, everything was thought of. Excellent location, in a quieter part of Whitby, with stunning views of the Abbey. All this, and still within easy walking distance of the town centre.

  • "The property is amazing - everything you'd wish for away from home, very comfy beds, and loads of bathrooms."

    It's also in a perfect spot, so quiet, and with views over the Abbey and harbour from the upper bedrooms, but only 10 minutes walking distance of the centre of town. And the mega hill on the return journey burns off any excess calories gained with all the amazing sea food, and real ales that Whitby has to offer.

  • "Lavender House is a fabulous place to stay in Whitby."

    Only a few minutes walk to the Swing Bridge, railway station and all of the other amenities in the centre of Whitby. The house is very spacious, well appointed and has plenty of rooms to cater for all visitors - e.g. plenty of lounge space - giving the teenagers on our group their own space to chill out without having to retreat to their bedrooms or have to sit with the oldies! The kitchen is gorgeous with a lovely range cooker and seating for a large family group. It is obvious care has been taken when renovating Lavender House to appeal to all visitors and provide them all with a comfortable holiday home! We will return to Whitby, no doubt about that!

  • "Stayed at Lavender House in January to celebrate a friends 40th birthday."

    The owners thought of everything for our arrival with nice little touchs with a welcome card, biscuits, milk and a nice bottle of fizz that we used to toast the special occasion. 10 of us shared the house for weekend there was enough communal space to ensure we didn't feel on top of each other. Would recommend watching the sun rise from the middle floor sitting room window. Would absolutely recommend Lavender House and will certainly be booking again. Thank you for making such an occasion extra special.

  • "A few little things like loose doorknobs and light fittings haging loose from the ceilings in some places did nothing to distract from how comfortable, clean and thoughtfully equipped this house was."

    We were a party of 4 couples and all had plenty of space to congregate together or find an area for quiet time. Toilet and shower facilities on each floor meant that the 4 floors were not an issue. The kitchen/diner was our favourite place to hang out having enough room for us all, with great seating area and good cooking facilities. It was lovely and warm and cosy and often had to turn radiators off. What a lovely place to stay if visiting Whitby. Wouldnt hesitate to book again if holidaying in Whitby with the same number of guests.

  • "The website was easy to use and enabled us to search for the perfect property to meet our needs."

    Lavender House was beautiful! We have never stayed in a rental property that was as clean and well furnished as this one. The facilities suited our party of 8 (including children) and the owners have thought of everything. The house is only a short walk from the centre of Whitby which meant that we didn’t use the car for days and walked everywhere. A super seaside family holiday was had by all in a fabulous house. Thank you!

    With great views of the Abbey from the front facing rooms on the second and third floor. This house is perfect for a group as there are loads of bathrooms,a massive kitchen table to gather round and two living rooms if the sofa bed is not in use. For the size of the property I thought it was excellent value for money. I would love to go back.
