Room lovely and breakfasts excellent. David & Freda very friendly and hospitable. Excellent location-just a 10minute scenic walk along the promenade to the centre of Whitby. Tea & scones on arrival were delicious and very welcoming as was the carrot cake served to us the following afternoon. Thanks again, also, for the card and chocolates left in our room for... More

This was yet another return visit to Dave and Freda at the Rosewood. It was like going home to old friends. Dave prepared our scones and tea when we arrived and chatted and joked with us about the tennis. Freda's welcome was just as warm and welcoming. The breakfasts are simply amazing. All the home made dried fruits soaked in... More

The Rosewood is situated on a little road tucked away by Whitby football club. It is just a scenic 10 minute walk to the centre of town and only 5 minutes from the Khyber Pass. On the phone Freda said to ring whatever time we arrived to get a parking permit for outside the B and B, we felt cheeky... More

Date and Freda were so welcoming, felt like home from home. Couldn't fault the cleanliness and everything you could imagine needing is there. Scones and breakfast top class. Will visit again and recommend 110 percent

This is my 2nd year at the Rosewood and have already booked for 2015. It does feel like a bed and breakfast but a yearly visit to friends Dave and Freda can't do enough and food is fab not everywhere you get asked what cake you would like for your afternoon snack. See you next year Linda (northern soul)

Back at Rosewood again - have now lost count of how many visits we have made to this amazing B&B in Whitby. Yet again Dave and Freda looked after us from the start of our week with them, right through to our departure. If you have never stayed at Rosewood before, I would urge you to book a stay -... More

Very easy to find with ample parking available either outside the property or in the adjoining streets. A very warm welcome from our hosts, Freda and Dave , and a delicious cream scone, biscuits and hot drink on arrival, which was also very welcome. I've never stayed in such a lovely B&B before, and will definitely visit again. The room... More

We have just returned from three days with Freda and Dave. An utterly memorable experience from the moment Dave appeared at the door to welcome us. Some of our friends had opted for a nearby Premier Inn, others for a local country house hotel. From what they told us, we got the best deal and the most individual service. If... More
