May 2013
A superb property one of the best we have stayed in, very quiet and although next to railway line this did not cause any problems; if anything this added to our enjoyment sat on our balcony to watch the steam train go by. We loved it here.

The whole family loved staying at railway cottage; we would all either run outside when we heard a train or go on the balcony! Amazing views from the back of the house. Very easy and quick to get into the town and beach even with small children. Cottage felt very homely and had all the essentials that are needed for a relaxing holiday.
Mrs Wells

We loved everything about our holiday. Railway Cottage was situated in a brilliant location and was very handy to everywhere. I would highly recommend the cottage to all my friends and family.

This was our second stay at Railway Cottage. Its in a perfect location, easy walk into the town. The house is spacious and comfortable; we will definitely be back.
Mrs Brown
May 2015
The house was great; it was clean and very nicely decorated and we particularly loved the children's room. We had everything we needed and it was very close to Whitby town centre. The two parking spaces were a real bonus as we have paid extra in the past for parking. There was an issue with the dishwasher and the owner came out straight away to sort it which was great. He also gave us some tips of places to eat.

Its location, its style; everything about this property was superb.
Mr Goddard
May 2015
It was the first time my family and I had been to Whitby and it was a most enjoyable experience. The house being located alongside the railway was ideal for any train enthusiast. Even if you were not into trains, the view of the Abbey and riverside were excellent. The Railway Cottage was within easy walking distance of the town centre and was a convenient area to explore the Yorkshire moors.
Mr Clayton
August 2014
This was our second stay at Railway cottage - we like Whitby and of the many places which we have occupied there we prefer Railway Cottage.
Mrs Hill

Beautiful house, perfect location and friendly locals.
Mr Barnard
July 2014
Superb location, wonderful views of the Abbey and Harbour. It was great to see the steam trains rolling past each morning and afternoon. We particularly loved the patio area to sit outside in - thankfully we were blessed with warm, sunny weather. There was lots of space in the cottage for our party of eight. My wife and I had the penthouse with balcony and en suite bathroom, which couldn't be bettered. We came with close family to celebrate my 60th birthday and all in all it was an unforgettable holiday. Whitby never disappoints and this cottage was the best accommodation we have had in 25 years of coming here. Worth every mile of the long journey from Hertfordshire!
Mr Taylor
June 2014
We cannot fault the accommodation and we cannot fault Whitby and the North Yorkshire Moors.
Mrs Nolan
May 2014
The location and size of the property made it excellent value for money. Four generations of our family along with our two dogs were accommodated comfortably. We found lots of things to do in Whitby, but it was also a lovely cottage to stay and relax in. We are definitely considering booking again next year. We found it to be an excellent cottage situated in a lovely place with lots to see and do.
Mrs Robertson
January 2014
Myself and my family had a fantastic stay and will definitely be looking to book again!
Mrs Lawless

Mrs Rollins
March 2014
We had a fantastic time in Whitby, made all the better by this accommodation. The owner sent me as much info as possible, before we travelled, about places to eat and places to leave well alone. The cottage is beautifully furnished, very clean, well equipped and the absolute bonus was that we could take our little dog. We will definitely be booking again!
Mr Smith
January 2014
Whitby is a great place to stay. The cottage was situated alongside the railway track behind the car park near the Co-Op (5 min walk). Perfect location. Over 3 floors with the master having its own balcony. Overall a great holiday.
Mr Mccabe

Lovely warm cottage with everything we needed.
Mrs Doherty
December 2013
The location was really close to Whiby town centre. Even though the trains ran behind the cottage you could hardly hear them. All the rooms were spacious and well furnished. Perfect!
Mr Parsons
November 2013
The overall standard of the cottage was excellent. Clean, well furnished, smart and with every facility you could wish for. It's location, notwithstanding the railway, which was no issue at all, was fantastic. So nice to not have to worry about parking in Whitby.
Mr Barnbrook
October 2013
The cottage was so spacious, we all loved it!
Mr Parker
October 2013
Always love Whitby at this time of the year. I stayed in this property 2 years ago, and think the new owner has made it more homely. Great time was had by all, hope to book again for next year.
Mr MacKenzie
August 2013
Excellent property which exceeded our expectations. Beautifully furnished and in a fabulous location. Our grandchildren particularly thought it was marvellous and want to stay in the same cottage again next year.
Mr Connor

Mr Davies
September 2013
There was plenty to do in Whitby and the food was superb in all the restaurants we chose. Regarding the accommodation, the master bedroom was very nicely furnished with a good firm bed. We loved the balcony and en suite. The house was well equipped with quality furnishing and one of the best we have stayed in. The trains are no problem whatsoever and in fact were a novelty to watch.
Mrs Haley
August 2013
The cottage was so clean and comfortable could not ask for a better place to stay. It was so lovely we have booked it up again for next year.

Railway Cottage surpassed all our expectations and is without doubt, the best accommodation we have ever had.
Mr Gibson
September 2012
The cottage was fantastic we and our friends had nothing but praise for the position. So close to Whitby, and the added enjoyment of having steam trains at the bottom of the garden.
Mrs Lax
October 2012
The kitchen was as well equipped as ours at home.
Mr Jenkins
November 2012
We liked the location of the property. We have a small baby so the fact we were far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the centre, yet only within a five minute walk away was perfect.
Ms Young
November 2012
The cottage made the holiday. We will definitely return.
Mr Buckley
April 2013
High standard of finish to cottage, excellent location, ease of access to town on foot.
Mrs Rhodes
July 2013
Everything was wonderful from the excellent accommodation, the friendliness of the owner when we rang with a question, the location by the railway line for our twin grandchildren and Whitby itself which had everything you want for a family holiday. We also had excellent service from you, the letting company as you were friendly, helpful and patient at all times.
Mrs Pearse
June 2013
Lovely position and the house was beautiful with everything you could need. The walk into Whitby from the property was nice and flat.
April 2014
In a superb position this house was ideal for our weekend in Whitby. We needed a house that was comfortable for a party of 6 adults and this was ideal. It was beautifully furnished and equipped.
September 2013
We found this cottage a perfect stay. It overlooks the railway line into Whitby, which serves both the national railway and preserved NYMR. There was nothing to fault with the accommodation, well equipped and decorated. In addition, although we were just a couple it would easily sleep eight so bags of room. Another bonus was the strong WiFi, which I certainly welcomed. Location wise was perfect, as it was an easy 10 minute walk into Whitby (to the rail station and Co Op), whilst been on the outskirts it was easy to get to by car. Plus it has its own off-road parking space outside the front door. The only thing I might have done better would be to offer a complemantary bottle of wine and / or bottle of milk on arrival, but then that is just nitpicking... Plus, no guest book; it is always nice to read other guests comments.

This was an extended family holiday from 11 month old to grandparents. The location is great right next to the North York Moors Railway line so you get close up views of the steam trains - kids loved it and so did we. Close to harbour and river walks, 5 to 10 minutes easy walk from town centre 15 minutes to the Magpie and band stand. 2 car parking plus on street parking close by - great for us coming in 3 cars. Lounge is laid back and comfy - good heating system but the house is very well insulated too so after 2 cooler days heating went off. kitchen well laid out with plenty of equipment. Take oven gloves though couple of pans got very hot handles! Double oven, but unfortunately top door did not close fully so cooking Sunday lunch was more difficult. getting all the negatives out of the way the top floor shower was temperamental and the lights were out in the main bathroom - difficult to shave. But for these niggles the review would have been excellent. Plenty of space good decor and the great location. Owner was very helpful and the booking process with Sykes cottages was painless. would recommend for a family holiday.
August 2015
This is a really high standard self catering cottage, and if you like trains, you'll love the steam engine which passes by four times a day. Even for non train lovers its a good location, about 10 minutes level walk to the centre of Whitby. We plan to return.
March 2014
Great location house perfect will go back again. Thanks
Steam buffs ideal cottage.
January 2014
Usual first class service from Sykes. One of the best cottages we've stayed in.Being a railway buff it couldn't be any better and amenities excellent.Everything about the cottage was ideal if a fault has to be picked it would be the white carpet in the living room and bringing a dog into it.

A superb quality property that is ideally located. Walking distance to old town. Dog friendly but still immaculate decor.
September 2013
A well presented very spacious house with lovely views close to centre of Whitby just a short flat walk away. Took our elderly parents with us was easy to get out and about all our needs catered for had a great time! Will be back again sometime !!
November 2012
This is a stunning property situated close to railway station and town centre/harbour-flat 10min walk to bridge. Had all modern amenities-quality funishings-comfy beds-immaculate decor- could have stayed forever very relaxing.
