Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a wonderful week, the cottage was more than we imagined. We only hope we left it as was.

May we come again next year.

Hi Andrew,

Just a quick note to say thank you, Jeanette and I had a great time and the cottage was perfect

Thanks again

thx. I have to say your booking process is very slick compared to the

big boys

My husband, myself and our two children stayed at the cottage last year in July for our friends wedding in the church just next to it and fell in love with it, and we would love to come back.Is the week of the 9th-13th July available as a full week? How soon would you need a deposit or can we pay in full on the 23rd June for the amount of the full week?

Kind regards

Lovely stay in a super little cottage

  • 4 of 5

Arrived in Whitby for a few days with our granddaughter. Had a lovely time both in Whitby and in Cockle Cottage. Our granddaughter was very taken with the cottage and loved spending time there. The cottage was clean, tidy and welcoming. Would definitely stay again.

Perfect location for this cosy Fishermans cottage

  • 5 of 5

This lovely refurbished fishermans cottage is set in the heart of Whitby. Within easy walking distance to all amenities and local tourist attractions.

The property is warm and perfectly maintained. Set on three levels the property has modern facilities and excellent for a family of four or two couples. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Whitby and in particular this lovely accommodation. Close to restaurants, pubs, shops and the harbour. You will not be disappointed with this well appointed accommodation.

Cockle Cottage in Whitby

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is delightful. We were cozy even on cold mornings. A peaceful retreat from our busy days walking. Whitby is a lovely seaside town but don't miss the walk to Robin Hoods Bay. ( You can bus back)

There is a brewery up by the Abbey worth a visit also.

The cottage is fully furnished except for towels. We plan to return.

Charming Cottage within Whitbys Maze of street's.

  • 5 of 5

Just off a main shopping street, not far from the swing bridge and everything Whitby has to offer lies this charming cottage.These cottages are hidden jems within Whitbys bustling resort. Cockle cottage was very welcoming and well equipped, clean and everything you would expect from a sea side cottage.( complete with seagulls , some that habit on a roof adjacent to the attic bedroom) this is by no means meant as a negative as it was quite amusing watching them from the bedroom with their babies. The you tube video does not do this cottage justice as the bathroom for instance has since been updated. Check out parking before you set off, we didn't as we were to be left a parking permit on arrival but it had been overlooked, so had to find a nearby car park and pay for the weekend.( you can only unload your car after 4pm and load up before 10 am near the cottage)Car parks are plentiful and nearby free after 6pm until 9 am so set your alarm for 9 am to pay until 6 then same again the next day ( worked out £6.50 per day) just glad we weren't staying for a week. We had a lovely stay with our 4 year old who loved the place, ( safety gate at the top of the stairs was welcoming ) you can also bolt the door to the attic room open should you want to listen out for your children in the night who's room is 1 flight of stairs below.

Our only problem was a neighbour from a cottage at the back of the property

( we could just see their small conservatory, through ivy and bushes from

our attic bedroom ) we thought at first it was a pub as the extremely loud heavy metal music went on untill 1am, but it didnt stop there, it switched to an extremely loud Tv documentary about the jews, we could hear every word until about 2 am when we must have passed out with exhaustion and headache .Luckily our son was at the other side of the cottage and on a lower level. This obviously was out of the owners control and reckon we were incredoubly unlucky that weekend, but laugh about it now. lovely place , cafes , shops and boat rides a stones throw away :)
