Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Lovley place to stay . House is beautiful and had everything we needed for our stay . Owners could do enough to help us and prvoided us with two travel cots for our twins . Perfect to have parking space right outside a lot of places we looked at didn’t have parking even nearby . Lovley welcome pack of bread milk butter etc when we arrived . Location is great nice walk along viaduct to Whitby centre and only 5 mins drive up to abbey- could have walked it too . .We walked in to Whitby both days and was lovley nice stroll with the pram . The complex is so handy with pool and play area for kids will Definatly Come back when our babies are bigger . We had a drive to Robin Hoods bay as well which was about 5 miles away which was nice .

Thanks to Glynne for letting us stay at your cottage over the weekend. Welcome pack with Milk, Bread, Cake and brewing tackle was a nice unexpected touch.

Perfect setting nice and quite, very clean well kept cottage with a homely feel. Parking space right outside the door.

20 minutes walk into Whitby along the Cinder trail which you can get on at the top of road.

Well recomend to anyone and we will definitely be booking again for later in the year.

Thanks again Ryan

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is like a small terraced cottage, beautifully presented, clean and with all necessary equipment inside. The views and wild life at the rear of the cottage are exceptional. There is designated parking for each property and it is in a good location for Whitby and nearby places of interest.
