    One small thing i think the saucepans and frying pan could do with changing. Thank you Richard for another lovely holiday we hope to be back soon.

    Except for plenty of crockery, plates mugs and knives and forks, they seem short on basic things such as dishes for microwave and oven. Guests do cook meals while on holiday and not always eat out.

  • "We’ve been coming to your cottage for 6 years at Feb half term and love it."

    This year our only complaint was the super complicated toaster, which we gave up on and used the grill! Please can you put a bog standard one in again for next year?!! We have never found the trains intrusive and always have a lovely stay. We’ve also never really got the heating right, but it’s always been warm, this year through storms Eunice and Franklin we were toasty. We always end up with the windows open upstairs later on, when we get too toasty. The location is perfect, the parking space is worth its weight although it’s tight to get in and out of. Booked for next year already. Thank you.

    The cottage is very well located and parking a bonus. The cottage was well appointed and nicely furnished. Couple of little niggles we found, broken appliances and utensils which we reported to the owners on the number in the handbook, no response to date which is a little disappointing. Despite this would recommend the cottage.

  • "We loved our stay in Whitby."

    The cottage is in a fantastic position near to everything but far enough away to be quiet. The trains going by was a bonus for me. Sadly the cottage facilities were a bit tired and lacking; in the kitchen there was a dishwasher but NO dishwasher tablets. The kitchen utensils were poor, broken spatula, pans scratched due to there being no wooden or silicone utensils. Kitchen drawers needed a clean, crumbs and old tea towels and questionable oven gloves. Lounge area very comfortable, TV a bit old (a smart tv with ability for people to use their own Netflix or Prime would be better, especially on a wet day when you might just want to chill) DVD worked but the connector to the TV didn’t fit too well meaning it made a background buzzing throughout. Double bedroom great, comfy bed and lots of storage .Bathroom was good, nice bath and super shower. Dust inside radiator and on extractor fan disappointing and a bit unpleasant Bunkbed room ; overcrowded with furniture which made the room feel claustrophobic and musty. Beds uncomfortable and certainly wouldn’t feel ok with 2 adults in this room. ( perhaps this is why there is not a photograph of this room on the website) Bed linen in this room was very tired bobbled and unpleasant ( luckily found some better in the store cupboard) Overall we did enjoy our stay just feel it needs updating. Deep cleaning and a few new purchases. Finally a welcome pack of at least milk, but a few bits like milk, bread, tea bags, salt and pepper, kitchen roll and dishwasher tablets (all which are standard in holiday let’s nowadays would be an improvement) Sadly we would not stay here again. Would recommend for 2 adults with 2 children but not for 4 adults and a dog as we had booked for in view of bunked room ) Thank you

    My only little grumble, is that though there was a parking space it is a bit difficult to access and reverse into as it is down a track and if you have a really large car it would be difficult to park. # Saying that if I decided to stay in Whitby again, I would consider this property.

    There are just a couple of points we wanted to make - the ironing board is slightly twisted and does not sit flush to the floor and seems quite dangerous. I had to iron holding the ironing board at all times. Also when we arrived we didn't realise parking was around the rear of the property. As we have a VW van which is low profile we were unsure if we would be able to park. Luckily we did manage the parking and were able to use the gates to the side of the property to get in and out of. We look forward to booking Sleepers again in the future.

  • "What a fantastic place to visit."

    Well worth a holiday. The views are spectacular, there us so much to do. Yorkshire Dales view is out of this world. Must have a ride on the steam train,go on a boat trip. Visit Goatham,which was used in Heartbeat as the Aidensfield Arms lovely dinner and walk round the village its as if you were in a scene from the programme. You must walk the steps up to the Abbey in Whitby,tiring but you can say you have done them. Have a ride round the villages, and take in the lovely scenery as if like us everything at home is brick built and built up areas,there its stone,old and spacious. Whitby is big,keeping walking around the streets and you find more and more. Sutcliffes art gallery has lovely black &white prints of the old days. Sherlocks tea rooms is a must, fantastic food,decor is lovely. One thing to be aware of wear flat shoes as steep hills and cobbles everywhere,your be fit by the time you have finished your holiday. Well worth the 7hour car journey.

    The cottage is beautifully appointed with your every need thought of, unfortunately the standards have fallen since last year. The beds in both rooms were possibly the most uncomfortable beds we have ever slept on, ( when you wake up in pain that's not good). There was not enough coat hangers in either wardrobe. The hairdryer that was in the double room last year was missing and as the weather was so warm we had been on the beach and decided to wash our sandy clothes we then discovered that the washing machine would not spin, thankfully it was really warm and we were able to dry our dripping clothes outside. We enjoyed our stay but feel that a little more attention to the things that are very important would have made it better. We really feel that it does not meet the four tick rating that it has.

    Whitby is stunning and Sleepers makes the most of its location with views over the chandlers yard and up to the abbey if you lean on the windowsills and look left. It’s freezing in February but the cottage is cosy and has everything you could need (apart from a sharp knife). WiFi meant our daughter could nip back and revise for her GCSE mocks and our son could stay connected to his teenage phone world when we weren’t out walking the beaches, steps or wandering through town. Or crabbing- which I’m hoping he’ll have grown out of next year as with a windchill of -1 it was not my idea of fun, although he loved it. Lots of cafés are dog friendly. The best hot choc is takeout kiosk at the foot of the 199 steps, and a trip to fuzzy dogs bakery for dog treats is a must (closed tues/wed). Also if you have an eclectic party like us, the Rusty Shears for gin, cakes, coffee and a good warm up is worth a visit.
