This was our 3rd visit to The Mainstay and we would never considering looking elsewhere. Everything we could need and want from a Bed and Breakfast and more. All round perfection from the stylish rooms and ensuite to the delicious breakfast. Julie and Peter are the icing on the cake and really know how to host without being too overbearing.... More

I have visited many b&b's over the years and given them 5 stars, but looking back, maybe I was wrong! After two nights at the Mainstay now can I say that these guys beat the rest of them hands down! It's not that the hosts Peter and Julie are a 100% better than the rest but somehow they have taken... More

Peter and Julie have a great knowledge of the local area with plenty of help and tips if needed. Just the tonic for us to blow away the xmas and New year cobwebs. We will... More

My husband booked a break to whitby between Xmas/new Year. What a fantastic B&B very friendly and accommodating hosts. The bed was too soft for me but that is my own personal view. The breakfast was amazing and all freshly cooked. Fantastic

Stayed at The Mainstay with my wife, brother and sister in law over the New Year and just had to write this review. We were welcomed in the rear car park of the premises by Julie with a big cheery smile and hello before being shown through into what is a beautiful B and B where an equally happy Peter... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at The Mainstay, it was an amazing place, Julie & Peter have worked hard to create something very special. We will be back and would definitely recommend this stunning, warm, welcoming, relaxing B&B to our friends.

We have just stayed here for 2 nights as a bit of 'us' time. Julie and Peter are fantastic hosts and nothing is too much trouble. From our checking in and having a chat about the best places to eat and drink through to the lovely breakfasts - so much choice. The bedrooms are furnished to the highest standards and... More
