Wonderful time

No. 36

Lovely clean well kept holiday cottage. Nice welcome pack - milk, bread & cake. Beds comfy, house nice and warm. Kitchen is compact, especially the fridge, but as long as you are not cooking a gourmet meal you'll be fine. Shower is compact as well, so not great if you are tall. Swimming pool a bonus, temperature warm. All in all fantastic value for money.

Pleasantly surprised

  • 5 of 5

Booked last minute for a weekend Birthday treat. Was wonderfully surprised on walking in Friday night, the house was lovely and warm, had read about a welcome pack but what we received was more than expected and a lovely extra surprise left by the owners to help us celebrate. We walked over the Viaduct Friday night as far as to the school and would say was a do able walk into Whitby possibly 25/30 minutes. Went in the swimming pool Saturday 5 pm had it to ourselves, just a shame doesn't open more especially on a Saturday. Overall a great property in a lovely quiet location, hopefully will be able to find some time to definitely stay again.

Fantastic holiday stay

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and functional stay on a complex that does not feel crowded. Swimming pool small but great and adequate for needs as only people in the pool. Would imagine stays quiet due to long opening hours Sunday to Friday. 2 parks that offer younger children an outdoor play area. Cinder track great for walking into Whitby or further a field the opposite way to Scarborough. Home was comfortable with good beds, furniture, cooking utensils and leather sofas were very comfy on an evening. What stood this place apart was owners who respond quickly and go the extra mile with welcome pack and toys, books and games for children. Kitchen small for self catering but OK if eat out often as no dishwasher or workspace. No washing machine but laundry on site. I would definitely recommend and thank you for anow enjoyable stay

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

I recently purchased a stay at this cottage for my dad's birthday present. He was really excited about going as he absolutely loves Whitby. His stay didn't disappoint. On arrival he was greeted by gifts of a cake and wine, which he throughly enjoyed with my mum and friends, who stayed in the extra room. The cottage was clean, newly decorated and had everything they needed, including an onsite play area and pool which their grandchildren would love. Whitby was only a £6 taxi ride away but was also within walking distance - about 20 min walk (although my parents do walk quite fast!). They also checked out the local village of ruswarp and noticed a soft play area for children. Would definitely recommend this cottage to families, couples etc... Thank you for making their stay so enjoyable.

Warm and welcoming cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely and relaxing stay at the cottage. Having never been to Whitby before we found it an excellent base to explore the town and surrounding area from! The cottage itself was immaculate and decorated to a high standard making it very welcoming. There was plenty of room in the double bedroom to put up the travel cot. The on site pool was a great way to spend the afternoon with children too! As the weather was so nice we were able to make use of the walk over the viaduct bridge into town - taking in the lovely views and walking off the famous fish and chips on the way home! Will definitely recommend to family and friends and hope to make it back ourselves too!
