We arrived earlier than scheduled and were welcomed into their home. We were also greeted by Denzil the dog, who came for a little sniff around and then wandered away. We were offered a drink and very tasty fruit cake as we settled into our room. Our room was very cosy and well appointed, with a comfortable bed and plenty... More

Visited en route to the Northumbrian coast and had a really lovely stay. I would just reiterate all the previous comments about the hospitality of Paula and Steve. They made us feel really welcome and even gave my husband a birthday card and a bottle of wine

We had a lovely stay at Riftswood in May 2015. The B&B had been recommended to us for our first visit to Whitby. The room was clean, the area quiet and access to Whitby was straightforward. Car parking was safe and close to the property. Breakfast was outstanding with a great choice and very high quality. Kippers and "kipper liquor"... More

Stayed here for a long weekend with friends. From the moment we arrived to when we left, we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Although we arrived early, our rooms were ready so we could drop all of our stuff, and before heading off again we enjoyed a glass of wine and slice of cake whilst getting to... More

A beautiful, perfect little, 100% stay. We stayed before our wedding and peter's homemade jams are to die for. The rooms have so much attention to detail and little extras it makes you never want to go home. The glass of wine/cup of tea and home made cake upon arrival is a lovely touch and see if you can find... More

On arriving we were greeted by a very warm and helpful welcome,after been shown... More

We loved our stay at the Rifstwood, especially meeting Denzil. On stepping inside we knew we were in for a treat. A lovely welcome from Pete with wine and fruit cake as we settled into our room. Spotless room. Breakfast in the morning was cooked and served by Paula to our requests. Scrumptious. Hopefully we will be back again soon.

We stayed at this lovely b&b on our way down to Essex as a one night stop over . Everything about it was absolutely perfect and there were lots of extra touches eg a welcome drink ( wine or tea or coffee) and a slice of fruit cake . A personalised letter on arrival with very useful information . The... More

Stayed for one night, wish it could have been more! We booked up only the night before arrival, it was a last minute thing, and I am so pleased we found this B&B. Its in a quiet area, the town centre a short scenic stroll away. Parking is available outside the accommodation. Paula, Pete and Denzil (the lovely, friendly dog)... More
