We had a fantastic stay at the Hayshed. Centrally located, a great base to start out from. Just a few miles drive into Whitby (or walk across the cliff tops) but far out enough to be considered rural. The cottage was lovely, clean, full of character and very welcoming. The decor was a little quirky but very much in keeping with the surroundings, it worked well and we loved it. The owners had thought of everything you might need during your stay. Plenty of cutlery crockery and plenty of towels, including ones to wipe down the dog (we had brought our own but a nice touch all the same). The bedroom was also fab and the bed was very comfortable. The information pack was detailed and easily understood and even included a parking permit to save some of those expensive charges. The bonus of decent Broadband Wi-Fi was great, we played our music through the bluetooth speaker in the bedroom. All in all, we loved it, will definitely stay again and would highly recommend it to others wanting to stay in the area.
