  • "Smoked Kipper Cottage is set quite high above the town so you need to be pretty fit for walking from town."

    Parking outside the cottage was easy but our visit was out of season. The area was quiet and I suspect this might not change in summer as it’s off the tourist trail. The highlight of the area is there is the most amazing Fish and Chip shop a few doors down , huge portion and amazing quality, a good few pounds cheaper than those around the harbour. The cottage has a lovely modern bathroom with a hot and powerful shower and the beds were comfortable. Unfortunately the cottage was very cold when we arrived and the open plan downstairs was difficult to keep warm but that would not be a problem for summer visitors. The town of Whitby needs no advocacy ,it’s a marvellous little gem huddled tight on the Yorkshire coast.

  • "Lovely stay, lovely cottage in central location well equipped to a good standard."

    Very comfortable with all amenities needed! Nice bathroom with nice big bath which kids enjoyed. Shower seal on glass but loose but tiny issue and plenty of towels provided so managed fine. Would absolutely return, thank you!

  • "A lovely well equipped cottage with a friendly little pub and good fish shop only a few yards."

    The only draw back is the steep hill you need to walk up from the centre of Whitby. Having said that we would definitely stay at Smoked kipper cottage again.

  • "We had a fab stay at Smoked Kipper cottage."

    It’s a great location and has all the things you need to be a home away from home. There were a few minor issues whilst we were there but the owner and maids of whitby team were great and quickly got things fixed. We enjoyed it so much we have already booked to go back next year. Parking was no issue, we managed to park around the curves initially and then moved to outside the house on our second day.

  • "I think you should say no parking guaranteed as we could not park all weekend Also the property was in need of cleaning all over when we got there and there was snail trails all over the sofa and found Old magazines and cutlery down the side of the sofa ."

    Noisy busy location

    Thank you for taking the time to give feedback. Whitby is a very busy resort, but especially so at Easter weekend/ school holidays when you stayed. The house is centrally located which is why parking is advertised as being road side parking and on a first come - first served basis. On street parking cannot be guranteed, but the area where the house is located is one of the best central areas of Whitby to park for free. Cleanliness is a priority for us and the house is managed and cleaned by a local friendly Whitby company and I have passed on your comments. Their contact details were in the property and they would have been happy to rectify any issues had they have been contacted during your stay. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our stay at the Smoked Kipper Cottage."

    Booking was easy with all the information needed to access the property. We were fortunate as no we were able to park on the road outside with no problems. Inside the cottage was well equipped and spacious for 5 adults and two dogs. The beds were comfortable and the shower was lovely. The stairs were steep to the top bedroom but we knew about it in the information and wasn’t a problem for us, the only thing I’d say is for my older Mum she would have benefitted from a handrail going up the stairs which we didn’t check on but should have done due to her mobility on stairs. This is in no way a reflection on the property and more something to be aware of. Sadly we were only staying for a short stay but could have easily stayed for longer.

  • "Had a lovely weeks stay in this cottage."

    It has everything you need. The chippy a few doors down is fab and the pub on the corner is very welcoming. There are some great dog walks nearby and its only a short stroll into town and less than a fiver for a cab back if necessary. The nearby butchers is really good, had to get some of his sausages to bring home.

  • "This was a delightful cottage in a great location."

    The description was accurate, which is important because the stairs to the top bedroom are quite steep, although we had no problem. The baby equipment was provided as we requested and everything else we required was available. We had a wonderful holiday in Whitby. Thank you.

  • "Firstly, speak to Sykes."

    Info sent to us had the wrong address on it - 9 Ashburn Lane. Not helpful. Comfortable and spacious enough. However running a bath etc took forever due to the low pressure. Could have done with a pointer about the etiquette of hanging out washing. Wasn't sure if it was just first come, first served.

    Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback, you were our first guests so we are learning all the time. We have been in touch with Sykes about them giving out the wrong address. They have done it again but it has now been finally amended. We have complained about this as it is not the service we expected from them and it isnt good for you when you have travelled there. As mentioned in the welcome pack we are having a new bath and shower fitted very soon. The line etiquette is something we have taken on board and thanks for raising it, it is somethig we should have put in the welcome pack and you were right it was first come first served outside the back gate. Glad you found it spacious and comfortable. Lisa & Steve Property Owner

Nestled in the heart of Whitby, a popular holiday destination on the shores of North Yorkshire, is this stone-fronted three-storey dwelling, Smoked Kipper Cottage.

Well-positioned near Whitby Beach, family-friendly attractions, and plenty of walking trails for countryside dog walks, the cottage is perfect for a family staycation, welcoming six guests and two well-behaved furry friends.

Arriving at roadside parking, step into the traditionally styled cottage, firstly arriving at the well-equipped kitchen; boasting a galley style, you’ll find everything from a washing machine to a microwave to help you ease into your self-catering break.

Reaching the formal dining room whilst enjoying a home-cooked meal around the dining table, offering enough space for your entire party to socialise and relax.

Next door you will find the welcoming sitting room, completed with an open fire, where you can unwind in front of a favoured DVD, read a book from the selection on offer, or simply enjoy your time away with your loved ones.

For some fresh air, venture outside to the rear patio, both private and enclosed, where you can pull up a chair, dine alfresco, or watch the sun set on another day in North Yorkshire.

As sleep calls, travel upstairs to the first-floor, where you’ll be met by a double and a twin room, also home to the main bathroom with a corner bath.

Climbing up to the second-floor, be wowed by the king-size bedroom, displaying rooftop views and lofty ceilings, carrying through the cottage's homestyle interior.

Just a stone’s throw away you will arrive at a wealth of amenities to take advantage of, from drinks at The First In Last Out, to evening meals at Trenchers, offering the catch of the day; family-friendly, immersive experiences will also await within the seaside town of Whitby.

Whitby Pavilion is also on your doorstep, displaying an array of artistic events and shows, whilst The Endeavour Experience is perfect for a day near the river, or maybe climb the 199 Steps, offering elevated views of Whitby marina.
