A fantastic location, only 2 minutes from the town centre. It was great that there's a parking space too, especially given the location. The cottage had everything we needed for a relaxing break and the bedrooms were very comfortable.

The central location of this cottage with the bonus of a parking space provides maximum convenience in which to explore all of Whitby's many attractions. Literally there are many great pubs and restaurants just a few metres away. We had a great time. Access to the cottage was easy, and the cottage was warm and cosy and furnished to high standard throughout.

Cottage in a central location, a real home from home. It was in a quiet area near to a bus and train station, Whitby seafront and Abbey, also easy to get to Robin Hoods Bay and Scarborough. The cottage has everything you could need and the beds are really comfortable. Will definitely be going back to The Old Blacksmiths Workshop. Couldn't fault anything.

Brilliant location - the cottage is a five minute walk from everything beautiful Whitby has to offer. The cottage was perfect for our weekend break but I would gladly spend a full week there as everything had been thought of - even the vinegar in the cupboard for the obligatory fish and chips!

Fantastic accommodation finished to a very high standard at a reasonable price and with parking space useful in Whitby. Excellent location within walking distance of everything we wanted to do. Our best UK holiday, perfect for families with small children. We loved it all.
April 2016
Cottage was spotlessly clean, well furnished and had everything you could possibly need. It's centrally located and a good size. We really enjoyed our stay and would only say it could do with wifi.

August 2016
Lovely clean and well equipped cottage. The slope was steep but no problem for myself or my daughter. There was a damp smell in the back bedroom, but then it's a very old building. Very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Wifi would have been great, but we found reception when out and about.

My family and i are curently enjoying our week in Whitby staying in this lovely cottage having booked direct with the owner. There are 3 adults and a baby stayingnand we have taken the offer of the travel cot and highchair. Cottage is all on 1 level and is finished to a high modern standard with original features. We have stayed in several holiday cottages in the paddock over the years as its the best location to both whitby harbour & shops as well as to west cliff etc. We would not stay in another location now. ONLY crisitism is having NO WIFI...this really should come as standard in today's technology era."Steep"hill you use to access apartment from parking space isnt as bad as people make out and my mum who has arthritus managed it without a problem.
July 2013

Characterful, spacious cottage with all amenities and modernised to a good standard. Has advantage of nearby parking space, although it is quite hazardous taking suitcases etc. from car to cottage due to extreme slope outside. Close to shops, restaurants, railway station and harbour. Main bedroom needs attention due to unpleasant damp, musty smell. Everything else, perfect!
May 2015
The cottage is close to the Quay and shops. The downside is the very steep road to reach it, which you have to do by foot as there is no parking outside the cottage. The alternative route to reach the cottage is a series of steep steps. This is not mentioned on the website unfortunately. The cottage is modern in design but lacks enough crockery for 4 people. Also oven trays are in poor condition and no casseroles dishes. Such a pity as it's something that could easily be put right at little cost. As nobody else has mentioned this problem I can only presume that past guests have eaten out and not prepared their own meals. Be aware that Internet and mobile phone signals are poor in this area. We had our grandson with us for a study break from University and he had to cut his break short as he was unable to study at the cottage. I understand this is a problem in all areas of Whitby and not particularly with this cottage. I feel this cottage is only suitable for a maximum of 3 people as the second bed is just 4 foot wide, and the room very small.
April 2013
My family and I had a lovely time in whitby in febuary 2013. The oldblacksmith. Workshop we could not fault , it was very clean and big enough for the four of us the only let down was the parking we couldn't park in front of the accomandation to off load but we did manage. I would return to the cottage and recomend it to my friends and family.
September 2012
We booked well ahead using reviews and photos etc to decide. It was very difficult to find and we had to get a detailed msap from the tourist information in town. Once found the parking is very tight DO NOT take a large car as you will not fit in ! The Blacksmith's is very well laid out and very with everything you need for a short stay. The beds are comfortable enough with good, clean linen. Plenty of storage. The shower / bath is excellent. The lounge / kitchen area has it all... electric stove, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, kettle etc and all the instructions are provided and are easy to understand. It was a black spot for internet with the service very weak and very unreliable. Phone service was also very unreliable. I had a Vodafone card. There should also be a second house key provided in case you or your other family members arrive home at different times. I mentioned this to the owner and she did make note of it. The location is great with it being only a 2 minute downhill walk to the harbour front. It is up hill back home, but where in Whitby don'y you have hills? All in all a very pleasant stay and we would thoroughly recommend the Old Blacksmith's to anyone considering a stay in lovely Whitby

Well equipped and maintained holiday cottage in one of my favourite towns. High spec, clean and comfortable. Some noise from upstairs on one evening but nothing too bad. Only slight quibble would be the TV which seems to be suffer in comparison to the rest of the cottage.
November 2010
it was a lovely location and cottege we all enjoyed it will be back sometime hopfully.
