  • "We needed somewhere spacious and luxurious to accommodate several family and friends for a post-Covid and pre-Christmas celebration."

    Westwood Cottage did not disappoint. I’d call it more of a palace of delights than a cottage though, as it had everything we could possibly have wanted. Superb kitchen, spacious sitting room with comfy seating for all, a fab family friendly dining room, luxury bathrooms and beautiful bedrooms. We were cosy and comfortable and extremely impressed. Infact in approx 17 years of coming to Whitby, it’s probably the best property we’ve stayed in.

  • "We spent a week at Westwood Cottage with our children and their partners/friends."

    There was plenty of space for the 8 of us and the house is probably one of the best equipped holiday homes that we've stayed in. The courtyard at the back was perfect for meals, drinks and sunbathing. There was lots to do in and around Whitby; highlights included paddle boarding, walking the Cleveland way towards Robin's Hood Bay and back to Whitby along the Cinder track, fish and chips at Trenchers and afternoon tea at Dotty's in Staithes.

  • "This is a lovely cottage right in the heart of Whitby a stroll downhill to the harbour."

    It has everything you need a real ‘home from home’. Tastefully decorated the owners have thought of everything and provide information that is really useful. The back garden is a sun trap and we enjoyed our breakfast there in the morning and a beer or wine in the evening. Great place to stay. Highly recommend.

I can't thank you enough and we will definitely be back next year.

  • "My family comprising of 4adults and 4 children had a very good comfortable holiday staying at the Westwood in Whitby."

    The house was furnished to an exceptionally high standard and all the bedrooms were light airy and had very comfortable beds. 2 of the children stayed in the twin attic bedroom and they loved the quirkiness of it. Access to the town took only about 5mins going down but about10 mins coming back up as the steps and the hills are fairly steep but manageable. However there is a longer way around to the town avoiding the steps. Whitby is a lovely old resort with plenty of things to do during the day for all the family and a varied choice of restaurants to eat out on of an evening. The whole family agreed that this was a 5 star holiday. Thank you Linda and Matt.

  • "Easy to book, good communication throughout."

    House was amazing had everything we needed and more. Plenty of space, plenty of glasses for plenty of alcohol, bowls and treats for the dogs, lovely outside space. The only small issue was the cleaning, bins in the house were left unemptied and full bins outside, dining table looked as though it had been cleaned with a dirty cloth, no big issue, just feedback for the cleaner. We were glad we went, was just what we needed to relax during this difficult time. Hopefully we will return when we can leave the house and enjoy Whitby,

    Thank you very much for your feedback, we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return to enjoy all the additional attractions that Whitby has to offer. We’re sorry that the cleaning wasn’t up to scratch in all respects on this occasion. We have since changed our cleaner and introduced additional cleaning to fully conform with the Covid 19 Cleaning Guidelines, the premises are fully sanitised between each visit. Property Owner

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 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.
