White Goose Cottage description

Holiday home
White Goose Cottage is a modern, mid mews cottage in an elevated position above the River Esk on the outskirts of Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast. Boasting one double bedroom with a sofa bed and one single room (with a pull out bed) as well as a family bathroom, this cottage can sleep up to four people. The rest of the cottage is made up of a fitted kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room. To the outside of the cottage is a private patio, a communal lawned area and off road parking for two cars. Being just one mile from the centre of Whitby, and on the edge of the North Yorks Moors National Park, White Goose Cottage is the perfect holiday home for exploring the delights of this region.

The ancient fishing port of Whitby lies at the mouth of the River Esk and is ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Yorkshire with its superb coastline and the spectacular North York Moors. Whitby is a charming and atmospheric 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.

The cottage was spacious, clean and light with very good amenities. The location was excellent, next to the tidal river and viaduct with the steam train regularly going by. A really lovely base to come back to. Particularly liked the balcony from the main bedroom.

The cottage was lovely, very clean and comfortable. If you have a dog there are some great walks, there is a cinder track which from the location of the cottage you can walk to Whitby in one direction and Scarborough.

Liked the fact that the cottage had river views from all front windows and the balcony. The cottage was really clean and in a wonderful position right next to the River Esk and under railway viaduct. The wildlife around the area is brilliant - we saw a seal every morning and a heron, and the ducks come straight up to the front door. Sky TV was a bonus.

The accommodation was exceptional, well equipped and spotless. The outside was kept clean, grass mown; all immaculate. Of course the weather helped!

It was a lovely cosy property to rent for the week. Only 5 minutes from Whitby itself, but whilst there at the cottage, it was very idyllic, by a river, quite countrified, ducks and geese wandering around, very relaxing.

It was a nostalgic trip back to an area we used to live in. Enjoyed walking into Whitby along the cinder track and being able to look out onto the river.

A spectacular riverside location, being able to walk into Whitby while passing steam trains and cheeky ducks. The cottage was well-equipped.
Mrs Crabtree

The location is lovely, right on the River Esk. We could walk into Whitby along the viaduct and disused railway line which took about 30 minutes. The property was well equipped, even with Sky plus TV which was a real bonus, and very comfy furniture. We had visits everyday from the local ducks. I would recommend this property to friends and family.

This is the second time we've been to White Goose Cottage, in fact this time was our honeymoon. It is beautiful where the cottage is positioned and only a short stroll into Whitby. We take our dog with us and she loves it too.

The cottage was clean and tidy on our arrival. It was equipped to a good standard. We liked the proximity to the cinder path and local footpaths.

Well maintained and clean property. Accurately described. Well positioned for a quiet relaxing break, but close enough to the town of Whitby for the able to walk.

The accommodation is lovely, very well equipped and in a lovely spot. Will definitely stay there again when we go back to Whitby.

Our second year at this cottage, again not disappointed and really love the area. We actually saw the seal this year! Even though the weather was not so good for June the cottage kept us very warm.

The holiday cottage was in a lovely, peaceful and scenic location by the river. Great location to visit Whitby and the surrounding area. Our dog, Gem, loved it too!

The property is in a good location with parking, and is close to the town centre and areas of interest that are to be explored in locations nearby.

Mrs Newstead
June 2011
A great location in close proximity to the river and wildlife, with several owls heard during the night and one sighting of a seal in the river at high tide! Great weather, peaceful break.
Miss Holt
July 2011
We were pleasantly surprised by the proximity of White Goose Cottage to the river, old viaduct and the daily steam trains passing by. Very relaxing location with an abundance of local wildlife - regular daily visits at feeding time from the resident ducks! Excellent base for exploring Whitby and surrounding area. Would definitely recommend visiting this area of Yorkshire and hope to return.
August 2013
Really enjoyed our stay! Lovely little cottage with all essentials for a self catering stay! Only negative thing is that previous occupants had used dishwasher and cutlery and crockery weren't very clean so hand washed them before use! Positive - everything else! Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again and recommend!

Scenery nice and setting good, but upstairs floors creaked and bathroom poor, plus the dryer did not work.
December 2012
Beautiful apartment every you needed a home from home the views were something else the steam train passes by a few times a day will be going back again
September 2012
Excellent service and precise information given to find property and where keys to property was located. Property was clean and information was given on how to use each appliance, also information on what their was to see and do in surrounding areas.
October 2011
A very comfortable and superbly equipped cottage that also offered excellent value for money. It was a delight to have a cottage in such a quiet and picturesque location with parking yet within walking distance of the centre of Whitby.
February 2012
This is a lovely cottage, it is very well equipt and is in a beautiful location. We were able on most days to walk into Whitby over the old disused railway line which took us around 20 to 30 minutes. The cottage is right on the river Esk and has friendly ducks who come to see you at the door for feeding, and there is of course a Goose who also comes right up to you. We are looking to book this cottage again this year and would not hesitate to reccommend it to others. We would reccommend Mr Chips for you supper in Whitby really good, and the pie and mash cafe opposite
