This must be the best B&B in Whitby. Four of us stayed for 2 nights and from the moment Paul met us at the door we could tell this was a well run B&B. The rooms are to a very high standard with comfy beds and superior bedding. You have Tea and coffee in your room and all those little... More

Go on, go on......I dare you to find fault with this great place! the house was grand, the interior super and the room was amazing. From the waterfall shower to the Nespresso machine and a wonderful bed...what else? A good breakfast, excellent hosts....no I'm not related to the hosts and it was the first time I've been to Whitby.

Well, we needn't have worried. This is top class accommodation with lovely welcoming hosts Paul and Sharon. They have genuinely thought of everything to ensure... More

Many thanks to Paul and Sharon who made our stay homely, comfy, welcoming and pleasurable. It wasn't like staying at a hotel or a B&B, it was more like staying at a good friends very neatly and beautifully kept home. Literally 30 seconds trundle from the picturesque cliff tops and beach of Whitby and no more than a leisurely 8-10... More

Myself, husband and teenage son have just returned from Abbotsleigh in Whitby. We booked Kelp and Starfish rooms online for a weekend, and chose Abbotsleigh on the strength of Tripadvisor reviews. Wow - what a find! The rooms were impeccable - clean, beautifully decorated and comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent with lots of choice, fresh and very well presented. The hosts... More
