In a great location and very spacious for the price. It was lovely and warm with some really quirky details. The 3rd floor double room had a really gothic feel to it. The owner was great on the phone and really helpful. We will be back to stay again!

The house is in a great location, a short stroll to the beach. It was very clean and well equipped, kitchen was spotless. Beds and sofa were comfy, lovely gas fire in the front room, very snug on those chilly evenings. Bathrooms were great with excellent power shower over the bath downstairs. Quirky touches to the house, low beams upstairs, interesting alcove area over the stairs! Dog friendly house also. Great location for nearby facilities, lots of quirky shops in the Whitby town centre. We certainly had a very restful time at the Fireman's Rest. Will definitely return.

The holiday home was in an excellent location to all amenities for shopping, eating and specifically for the beach and boat area. Whitby is a beautiful place for a break by the English seaside and not over commercialised unlike a lot of other venues.

Good location and most of the house was very good but 2nd bedroom was dreadful - small bed against the wall which is too difficult for older people to get in and out of, one small broken chair, small wardrobe with no hangers, couldn't stand up in half the room because of angled ceiling. No parking space available and promised vouchers not left until next day when we had already paid for 2 days parking.

We were a group of 5 and this cottage was perfect for us. We know Whitby very well and this place is centrally located but off the main street meaning it is situated in a quiet spot and we weren't disturbed by other Goth revellers during the wee hours. The kitchen is well equipped and with 2 bathrooms this place is very comfortable and was spotless for our visit. There are lots of quirky features in the house, low beams on the top floor and a elf size recess halfway up the staircase - which amused us no end. Also check out the small doorway in the kitchen that leads to...? Very nice would definitely stay again.

The property was in a great central position, we never used the car during our stay. We liked the property, it was very warm, roomy and comfortable for six adults. We had a brilliant time in Whitby!

In the centre of Whitby so did not need to use car. The beaches are excellent but you need to know the tide times.
Mrs Morris

I suppose nice sums it up really. It was nice. The location was good, central ish, not too far to walk to anywhere. I stayed with my parents, they booked it as it was great they could take the dog. The house was tidy, well kept, reasonable facilities. Downsides were, it wasn't advertised (where they booked it) that there were steps to it. My dad is disabled, so struggled some days if we had been walking a lot. There is a lack of mod cons... Most importantly Internet! Not a big deal for some on holiday, but for me with my folks, I would have liked it!!! We also couldn't find a guest handbook? Usually in private rentals you find some kind of welcome book. Also, the upstairs bedrooms are difficult to get to, the stairs are very narrow and there is limited headroom. I don't mean the review to sound negative, I didn't pay for the rental I'm sure for the price there was adequate. Could just do with some attention.

A very nice property in a central location, easy access to everything Whitby had to offer. We had a lovely family break. Spike, the dog, also had a ball.

We didn't have to use the car much at all, we used the bus and the steam train to get about. The property is central in Whitby and close by everything.
