  • "We all had a lovely stay it was very homely."

    Great location as it was near everything we wanted to visit. Would say that you need mirrors in all the bedrooms though. Looking forward to revisiting soon.

  • "We have stayed in holiday homes all around the uk for 30 years so my feedback is partly based on my experience relative to other properties."

    I will try and be constructive. We found that Salty Fox had been cleaned on a surface level to a satisfactory standard but it needs a really good deep clean. The cupboards, the fridge, the crockery, cutlery etc all need cleaning properly. The kitchen has no extraction so there is a lingering smell of stale cooking. The office blinds that are there instead of curtains or proper blinds are unattractive and noisy, if you like to sleep with the window open, as the chains rattle. The little yard was dirty and needs brushing and hosing. The rear alleyway is disgusting but you can’t do much about that. A welcome pack of soft biscuits and some milk sachets isn’t really a welcome pack so why bother? It’s almost an insult. As a comparison to other houses over the years, this is expensive. The holiday companies have taken advantage of covid and hiked prices in the uk without bringing them back down afterwards. Sorry for the negative comments but, although we had a great time in Whitby, if I was to return I’d choose somewhere else to stay for the reasons above.

  • "Nice house."

    Easily sleeps 7. Good amenities. Kitchen not the cleanest when we arrived. Bread bin looked like a biology experiment with weeks old bread within. Kitchen could do with a large Pyrex bowl and a casserole dish for the oven but overall well stocked. Would recommend a trip here. Take ear plugs to silence the gulls!

    Such a great location and house is just perfect for family’s and just loved that it was dog friendly. Would definitely stay again if was to return to Whitby. Parking can be an issue but we had 3 cars and all managed to find on street parking so really good overall.

  • "Beautiful house, tastefully decorated."

    We are not mad clean freaks at all but on behalf of how much I imagine owners are paying the cleaners and how much our stay cost, I am commenting - carpets needed a good clean, towel rails dusty, hairs on floor in bathroom, light fittings had cobwebs on, pans, plates etc dirty. Overall, just not sparkling which would imagine for such a home. Also, cafetière broken.

  • "We loved the size of this house, it was perfect for our family."

    There was everything we needed (apart from a frying pan) and the location was perfect. The bathrooms were lovely and really clean and the complimentary toiletries were a nice touch. There were plenty of towels provided and lots of storage space too. There were things like windbreaks, parasols and crab buckets in the cupboard for the warmer weather and an array of board games which was great. The actual house is beautiful with some original features still in place. The only downside was the cleanliness, especially in the kitchen. The fridge hadn’t been wiped out and the inside (and doors) of the kitchen units were dirty. We had to wash pots before use as they were still dirty. The tiles were grubby and there was mess all over the skirting board near the dishwasher. The other thing (but not major) was that the folder said there was a welcome hamper of tea, coffee, sugar, milk and biscuits. Most of this was available but no milk and biscuits. It would have been great to be able to make a brew after our journey. A few people mentioned the parking but we didn’t find it a problem. We had two cars and both unloaded outside and found spots down the next street.

  • "We had a wonderful stay and it lived up to expectations."

    It was decorated for Christmas so immediately felt at home. We all thought the beds were exceptionally comfy One little thing. we couldn't find the key for the back gate so had to walk all the way round with the rubbish, Probably hiding in plain sight!!!

  • "We stayed at the Salty Fox from 03/09/2022 to 10/09/2022."

    What a lovely property, it's well decorated, clean and tidy and has everything you need. The bed in the master bedroom is a king size (something you don't often get in holiday lets) and really comfortable. The location is perfect for a quick 5 minute stroll down into the town, although coming back takes a little longer as it's uphill ;-). There are some really lovely places to visit in the local area, Robin Hoods Bay, Scarborough, York to name but a few. It's great if you are taking your four legged friend with you, a lot of places are dog friendly. The only slight downside is the parking, not a huge issue for us a couple with a dog but I can imagine for a family with children it might be a bit of a pain especially for a lone parent with young children. The parking is in the street and is of course on a first come first serve basis, however, you can only park on one side of the street as it's quite narrow which inevitably means there will not be enough parking for everyone. Also, there are some inconsiderate people who take up more than one space. There is parking in nearby street so it does mean a short walk back to the property. We simply pulled up outside the property offloaded then went and found a parking space and did the same thing when reloading, I think the neighbors are use to it and didn't complain. Overall we had a great week and would definitely go back and would recommend the property, it's one of the nicest we have ever rented.

  • "House was clean and tidy."

    It was close to the centre of Whitby and not far from the beach. Only small thing I would say is the bedding on the king size bed was for a double bed and not a king size so it kept coming off, but apart from that it was a great place to stay. It was facilitated really well. Would recommend to a friend! We had a great family holiday.

  • "The lack of parking made the whole week quite stressful."

    It got to the point that when we got the car into a space on the street we just left it there so did not use the car to explore the area. It was a huge negative as we had planned to go around the wider area. The house was nice and comfy. Only issues with the house was the non-locking back yard gate, the smell of pee in the yard and the terrible office style blinds which did not block any light for sleeping. Fixed the pee smell with some detergent and hot water but could do nothing about the light and lack of security if the kitchen door was open for the dogs. It was spacious and Whitby is a great place to explore but the parking means we will not be back.

  • "Good points: - A nicely laid out property (but could do with a second bathroom (6 sharing 1 is not great - but we knew that going in)."

    - condition/ cleanliness of place was good. Negatives- - sea views, non existant (only view is from top room, which even then was limited) - top room, due to seagulls your request is not to open top windows which turns the whole floor into a furnace with no way of cooling the rooms. The noise of the birds nesting is relentless and paired with the heat made sleeping very hard, we had to purchase a large fan on day 2 to make the rooms useable. - you MUST make warning of the large slope into town, i took my parents (mid 70s) which made going into town very hard. - the small courtyard was useful but smelt a lot, i personally disinfected it twice whilst there which helped a little. Overall house ok (excluding top rooms) but would not stay again.

The property

15 George Street is a charming Victorian property with sea views boasting lots of character and set in the heart of Whitby, where its historic harbour glistens with colourful boats and its abbey towers over red rooftops.

This is the ideal place for a family holiday with friends in a wonderful area of North Yorkshire.

Climb three steps to the entrance hallway and head straight through to the main sitting room, which has a large bay window streaming in lots of natural light.

The electric fire adds warmth to the room during those colder months, where you can gather in the evenings and tune into the Smart TV or enjoy a board game together.

Move through to the second sitting room for some peace and quiet, or head down to the lower ground floor for a delicious homemade meal around the dining table, as the woodburning stove crackles away in the background.

The kitchen area is also on the lower ground floor and boasts a range cooker as well as a washing machine and tumble dryer in the utility next door.

There is access to the back yard from here, where you can sit out with a drink and discuss events from your day.

Find the master bedroom and family bathroom up on the first level, where you can indulge a hot soak in the bathtub on return from one of your walks.

Resting on the second floor, the double bedroom showcases fabulous views over the rooftops towards Whitby Abbey and the moors through the high window, while the twin and single bedrooms are ideal for those travelling with children or grandparents.

Discover many attractions in the town centre, which is a pleasant stroll away and has beaches, the harbour and many shops, pubs and restaurants along its winding streets and of course the 199 steps to reach the abbey.

Day trips can be enjoyed at Robin Hood's Bay or the seaside resort of Scarborough, while the North York Moors offer plenty to do in the great outdoors; you'll be spoilt for walking and cycling trails, there is also a golf course around a 10 minute drive away.

Choose this delightful holiday let for that much-needed break to Yorkshire.
