Tower Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Tower Cottage is an impressive former stable which has been lovingly refurbished to provide a stunning holiday cottage set within seven acres of grounds on the outskirts of Whitby. Three magnificent bedrooms offer enough sleeping accommodation for seven people including a magnificent solid oak four poster double in the Tower Room, as well as two other doubles and a single. The ground floor bedroom has an ensuite and there is also a large family bathroom. The cottage also boasts a fitted kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with lovely views and doors which lead out onto the patio. Outside the cottage is a private courtyard, a shared lawned garden and 4 acre field as well as ample off road parking. Tower Cottage has everything that a large family could require and is just 3 miles from the historic port town of Whitby, making this a wonderful holiday home.

The village of Aislaby is located in the rolling countryside of the Esk Valley just three miles from Whitby. In the surrounding area you can visit the famous church of St Hedda with its painted ceiling, take a walk through the beautiful Arncliffe Woods, or explore the old mill on the banks of the River Esk. Aislaby is also ideal for exploring the spectacular North York Moors and the many small fishing villages and resort towns of this beautiful coastline including nearby Whitby, once the home of Captain James Cook, which is a town of winding streets and hidden alleys, with a picturesque harbour, safe sandy beaches and of course the Abbey, reached by the famous 199 steps.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

A lovely clean cottage with everything you need for a lovely holiday. There was ample car parking and it is in a special spot in Aislaby with views to die for. Hope to return again in the future - a home from home, 5 stars from the whole family.

The owners were a friendly and helpful couple. A warm and comfortable cottage providing an excellent base for exploring Whitby and the surrounding areas.

Tower Cottage is absolutely perfect for any family. The owners have put their heart and soul into the property and it is a wonderful place to stay to relax and unwind. The countryside and views are unspoilt and you are made to feel welcome the moment you arrive. T he cottage is perfectly located for many attractions and it was wonderful to be able to see the steam train from the bottom of the field. I will definitely recommend this cottage to all my family and friends and I and my family will be returning again in the near future.

We loved the open space in the cottage and the big windows to the front so we could over look the Moors. It was beautiful when the sun came up. The property made us all feel closer as group but we still had own space. The owner lived on site and was lovely, so friendly but left us in peace. I would recommend this cottage for others to stay in.

Very well positioned to explore Whitby and the surrounding area. Excellent for our two dogs or children to play. A home from home, very well equipped.
Mrs Pogson
July 2012
The property was very well equipped and the setting was just perfect. 4 miles from the coast and we found a beach that dogs could go on all year round, the parking was also excellent. The best thing about this holiday was the friendliness of the owners and their acceptance of my 2 dogs. Thanks for making our stay very relaxed.

The owners were very welcoming and explained all to us regarding the cottage and the location. The cottage could not have been better, ideal for any age group. The whole family would recommend it and in fact we have already done so.

My family and I stayed in The Tower, Beech Hill Manor and The West Wing. The properties are magnificent and the surroundings are out of this world. The owners here on site to greet us and show us round they where more than helpful. Many of us are looking forward to our next stay.

My sister booked this cottage for a family break, me, mum sister, brother in law, neice and my Staffie. We had not had this kind of holiday for 30 years and I can honestly say that thanks to the hosts of, and Tower Cottage itself, we had the most relaxing family break we could have ever had. It was tranquil, chilled out, very well equipped, clean and neat and tidy. I have never been on a letting basis holiday before and was unsure about it, however on arrival we were greeted by friendliness from the owners and exuberance from Buddy their dog. We were shown the facilities and they were plentiful. The cottage had a real home from home feeling about it. To be able to lay in the comfortable four poster bed listening to the countryside sounds of the night as I drifted off to sleep made for some of the best nights sleeps I have had. To be able to open the door in the morning and watch my dog just race down the huge field with Buddy who called for her bringing his toys every morning was relaxing for me, no being dragged on a lead first thing and infact just knowing everything you needed was there in full working order in the cottage was wonderful. A perfect idyllic location with fantastic views of the countryside, blue bank, Whitby abbey and steam trains across the moors made for a brilliant family holiday and I want to return again soon for lots more "me" time. I can't recommend this place enough for the perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life!

Tower Cottage is a wonderful place to stay. the family owned cottage is perfect for anyone wishing to escape without being cut off. its location is wonderful and you are able to see the sea from the garden. the cottage has been lovingly refurbished and everything you could wish for is in the cottage. the views from the tower window is stunning and you can see over the valley from the lounge. myself and my family cannot wait to visit tower Cottage again in the near future as we felt welcome the moment we arrived

The cottage has a rustic charm and quality to it but unfortunately I thought it's price was in the upper end of the market. The cottage description in the brochure is correct but not very accurate, they don't mention that the en-suite bedroom is off the kitchen with an unsealed door which means cooking smells go through. They don't mention the stairs up to the tower bedroom are exceptionally steep half stairs which are a nightmare on journeys to the bathroom in the night or first time in the morning. The livingromm is nice, spacious but the furniture in the bedrooms is dated all beds sqeak and wobble. There is big gaps under the doors which mice obviously get into hence the reason for all plug in mice deterrents. The cleaning left a lot to be desired, we found old socks in in the drawers as well as a pair of used tights. I know it is the countryside and spiders webs are to be expected but they were there when we arrived. Everything just needed modernising and spruced up, it was all very shabby and broken. great location for the dogs though and fabulous view. I would go back if cheaper. It was the most expensive out of our shortlist.

We have visited this property several times in the past and always really enjoyed our stay. Richard has done a lot of work on the grounds since we were last there and has enhanced the views in a spectacular way. Our dog Zac had great times with the other dogs who were staying in the other accommodation and with a few acres to run around in both dogs and owners slept well after all the exercise. The owners Richard and Mary make you feel very welcome and requests are dealt with efficiently and with a smile. If you want a fab place to stay that will chill you out and let you enjoy the locality at your leisure then this is the place for you.
