From the first communication we felt we were very welcome. The welcome basket of cake, tea and biscuits and the latest magazine and Whitby Newspaper, all added to the experience. The cottage is an absolute delight, and very cosy and comfortable, and very well equipped. Beck Hole is a charming hamlet, with a smashing pub, the Birch Hall Inn. Good beer, and delicious but simple food. Again, this was a big hit with my fiancee, on her first trip to the UK from Brazil, as she especially liked the pork pie and pickle, with Black Sheep bitter. We will definitely stay there again. All I can say is location, location, location....SUPERB!!
