A very spacious, well planned and furnished house in a good location. Everything was just right. The steam trains passing the garden was a real bonus.
Mr Hunt

The house is situated close to all Whitby amenities, ideal for relaxing and local walks. The locals were friendly and the steam railway passes at the bottom of the garden several times a day.

Excellent accommodation in a great location, close to all the amenities Whitby has to offer, the car stayed on the drive all week.

Lovely house, home from home. Luxurious master bedroom and a very comfortable home.

An amazing place to stay, it was easy to find and it had everything you could need. It was a 5 minute walk to the supermarket and not much longer into town. The house was beautiful, the bedrooms were all good sizes and we never had any issues with space in the living area as they have two large sofas and 2 large comfy chairs. Would recommend to anyone.

This is a well appointed cottage, we have never had the amount of kitchen equipment at other properties. The standards overall are excellent, we particularly liked the location.

The house was excellent and in close proximity to Whitby town centre.

It was an easy walk into town but far enough out to be quiet at night. Stunning view from balcony.

Love Whitby and the location of the Mariners Rest was perfect.

Lovely light, airy, well decorated cottage with everything needed for our family group. Had excellent walking access to Whitby but away from the busy centre. Parking outside the cottage was a bonus too. We have had a great week and hope to return.
Mr Craner

In a great location, only a short walk to town, and in easy reach of all facilities and access to walks etc. There was a really good selection of pubs/restaurants - we were spoilt for choice! The cottage owner was available if we needed anything (which we didn't). It was an ideal cottage for families, it was very warm cosy and comfortable.

We love Whitby, we go there every year but it was the first time that we had stayed in this property. We loved the house and the location, the trains that go past did not bother us at all, in fact they sort of added to the enjoyment, we will be back next year hopefully.

A lovely house with everything a large family group could need. The furnishings were excellent even though this was a dog friendly property, really clean and with the joy of steam trains outside the door! The boys loved dashing out to wave at each one and the lovely people who waved back. I'd recommend this to everyone and would happy to come back. An added bonus in Whitby was parking for up to three cars!
Mrs Whalley

It was all extremely enjoyable - the owner was very welcoming, I would rate overall as VERY good. It was a cottage of character and we enjoyed the steam train going by. It was in nice walking distance to the town of Whitby and parking at the cottage was good.
Mr Wilce
September 2014
The property was extremely well presented and equipped. We had a warm welcome from the owner and much appreciated welcome pack. The location was ideal for exploring Whitby on foot (literally 5 a minute walk away), it is adjacent to the railway line but this caused absolutely no inconvenience. We wouldn't hesitate to return. It was nice to have dedicated off road parking.

The location is great for access to and from Whitby. The town centre was a 10 min walk and all amenities are near by. Says parking for 2 but we easily got 3 cars on the front....a massive plus for Whitby. If you have kids or you're an enthusiast of trains and boats, all you need to do is look out of the window and enjoy steam trains passing / stopping a few feet from the house during the day. Also a boat yard at the other side of the tracks, so my 3 year old was in his element!
May 2015
We went as an extended family group six adults one child one baby and of course Douglas the dog. This house is amazing very well equipped Large lounge big kitchen & the loft bedroom with on suite and balcony over looking the river Esk, boat yard and steam trains heaven, we wanted for nothing and so clean and modern ~ as anyone who has read my other reviews from last years disaster will know how much this matters! Plenty of parking a bonus in Whitby and for one small boy steam trains right out side the door, he waved to everyone and the lovely people waved back! I'd recommend this house to everyone
