About Jenny Firth

We bought Pear Tree House when our eldest daughter was almost a year old. We live an hour away and wanted family holidays and weekends by the sea!

That was 10 years ago! Together with our other two other children (8 and 6) and labrador we enjoy every minute of our stays at Pear Tree House.

The children love the cottage and we all relax the minute we come through the door.

I hope you will too!


Jenny Firth purchased this house in 2006

Why Jenny Firth chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

The cottage brings everyone together. We rarely sit in the sitting room. We hang around the kitchen table playing games or having a glass of wine whilst someone else cooks. The children love the attic room, hidden away from adults, especially when two families come to stay!

The location is perfect with beaches just 5 minutes drive and two easy walks into Whitby. The pub serves fabulous food and is very friendly and the butchers is amazing. You must try their sausage and egg sandwiches one morning!
