From the advertised details, reviews and the price, we were expecting to be 'wowed' by The Firs. We felt rather let down by the reality. The welcome we had (I think by the owner herself) was great, the service was good and the English breakfast was fantastic. The bedroom was a bit small, clean but 'tired', in need of decorating...

Excellent guest house, made to feel most welcome by the owner. Nothing is too much trouble and even our dog is welcomed, even give a sausage! Runswick Bay is a delightful place unspoilt and allows dogs on the beach. We had a special birthday celebration at the Firs last year with twenty four of us having free run of the... More

We stayed here while walking the Cleveland Way and it is only 200 yards off the path. This is quite a large B&B offering reasonable accommodation en suite. The owner is helpful. It would be difficult to have an early start as breakfast seemed to be from 8.30am. Though in our room free national UK calls were advertised which would... More

We stayed here for a Scooter Rally in Whitby. Its a very quite B & B, superb breakfast. Staff are all family and very friendly. Great choice of drinks in room and dogs more than welcome. But be warned they have resident cats.

I stopped at The Firs on my walk along The Cleveland Way and it was lovely to relax here after a long day of walking. My room was on the ground floor which made a change from other places I had stayed. Very comfortable double bed for just me, everything I could want with a piece of cake too and... More

We stayed here for a short break at the Seaside, with the local moors a bonus, we loved it. Great breakfast with homemade bread, good value evening meal and clean well equiped room. No complaints at all, free car parking, pleasant staff. We will be back soon. Thank you. Angela Bangle.

Myself and my partner stayed at The Firs after deciding last minute to pay a trip to the Yorkshire coast. It's a great B&B, located outside of whitby, so the village is not too busy and peaceful. Upon arrival, the owner was very welcoming and the room we were given was very clean and had lovely little touches such as... More

Found this Guest House by accident at the end of a very long day travelling it was a welcome respite. Quiet and comfortable, rooms spacious and clean. Lovely breakfast the next morning with home made jams etc. Close to the Bay, which is a killer of a walker down to. Need to be fit !!

This is an excellent B&B on the Cleveland Way. Large and comfortable rooms (mind your heads on the sloping ceilings!) some with actual baths. Good breakfast though be warned that if you order kippers they may come with scrambled eggs, fried tomatoes and mushrooms! A north of England practice I guess.
