  • "A lovely cottage ,well maintained and clean."

    The cottage is a mixture of modern and old, you will need to mind you head in places. Conveniently situated overlooking the harbour on the road side , but surprisingly quite. A good selection of game DVD'S etc. if the weather is bad.

  • "Odd Sock cottage is a fantastic cottage."

    It was very clean and well stocked with everything you'd need. The furnishings including the bed are of good quality and we had a lovely relaxing holiday. The location of the cottage is good and the view from the front window is amazing. Communication with the owners was very good . The only negative is the parking it was quite difficult finding a space on this side of the river but there was always plenty over the other side,

  • "This is a lovely place to stay."

    The location is perfect with super views of the upper harbour from all the windows. Very clean and comfortable. Well equipped and nicely decorated. Steps to access the property and narrow staircases in the property so probably wouldn't suit the elderly or infirm. My husband and I stayed here twice in 2019 and we are looking forward to our next stay in 2020.

  • "On arrival the apartment was everything we wanted for our Christmas break it was very clean with beautiful furniture and a real home from home."

    It was extremely cold on entering as the heating was on a very low heat level and I don’t think there had been any occupants the previous week to air it through!! We turned the heating on full and also tried to use the gas fire but it wouldn’t light at all. This made the upstairs unbearably hot but still very cold in the living areas and a draught seemed to be coming from somewhere. We contacted the owner about this but he said that due to it being the Christmas period he had been unable to find anyone to fix the problem with the fire. Perhaps it would be a good idea to provide some kind of portable heater especially at this time of year. Other than this we had a great time in Odd Sock Cottage and would gladly return but probably in the warmer months.

  • "Brilliant week at Odd Sock Cottage aided by the best weather of the year so far."

    The cottage had many nice touches to make it feel homely. Excellent views of the Marina and Whitby. Very relaxing. Only 5 minutes to walk into the shops etc. Parking is a problem although we did find a spot outside the cottage and left the car there all week. Just one downside with the cottage which is a problem with most cottages near the town centre - lack of outside private space to sit in.

    There were no issues... Very well equipped kitchen, extremely comfortable beds and very clean. Location perfect on the quieter side of the river, close to the town. Car parking wasn't an issue at this time of year, however it possibly may become a little challenging in high season. We would certainly book again without hesitation. Although there is a lock up small garage we didn't make use of it.

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 abundance of activity 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 every interest and time of year. 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. Hosting an abundance of leisure facilities, opportunities to explore the natural lands, and plenty of coastal delights, Whitby offers something for everyone. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay full of heritage wonders and scenic spots, and in 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.
