  • "Beautiful cottage in god spot and with excellent views with quick access to interesting and lively town."

    Particularly enjoyed the short walk to the Abbey and the coastal walk. The cottage was clean and light. We liked the setting at the top of one of the steep passages typical of Whitby but anyone with mobility issues might have difficulties accessing from Church Street although there was easier access from The Ropery at the top. Parking close by was easy.

    Hi Ann Thank you for your feedback, glad you enjoyed our cottage and the great location :) Property Owner

  • "Lovely house and good level of equipment though TV Reception was a little hit and miss."

    Not a house for anyone with mobility issues or requiring easy access, steep stairs and steps to door.

    Hi Michael Thank you for your feedback and glad you enjoyed your stay :) Yes those steps definitely keep you fit! Property Owner

    Spotlessly clean and well appointed. I do think the property should have a washing machine but this was of little problem to us. Would definitely book again

  • "The cottage was ideally situated for walking into Whitby and for driving to other local areas."

    A welcome bottle of Fizz and a packet of crisps was a nice gesture. The cottage decoration was modern, bright and clean with the bathroom facilities being very good and there was always constant hot water. It was nice to have an outdoor space as gardens are not always available in Whitby. The sitting room was comfortable with heating available if required. The view from the upper bedroom which overlooks the harbour and town was stunning. The bedrooms had nice bedding and quality towels were provided. Overall we enjoyed our stay and felt the cottage was great for 4 adults. A few points to consider :- Parking was a daily challenge as it was on a first come basis in a very busy residential area. More than one car was an extra challenge. There are steep steps into town from the cottage and also inside the cottage. The kitchen and dining area were very compact making it awkward at times to prepare and cook meals and we found the table seating was not really comfortable. Housekeeping issues:- The outside area had a BBQ which we did not use as it was filthy. I am not sure who was responsible for ensuring the BBQ was fit to use. There were a couple of broken glasses in the cupboard, the fridge door didn't close properly which resulted in excessive condensation and the extractor fan was not working. While these were not major issues it was a little disappointing.

  • "Beautiful cottage newly renovated."

    It has lots of space and is very well planned. We loved the garden room and the patio next to it. Lovely views from all four floors of the house. You need to be good at climbing stairs to stay here so it wouldn’t suit everyone! We have stayed in Whitby many times but never in this location. We discovered a new route to the Abbey which is very close to the property and meant we could walk down the 199 steps for a change instead of up them. Would love to stay here again.
