Loved the cottage - we were in Endeavour Cottage 4. It was close to the river and viaduct on the lower level and our back door opened onto the play area which was great. And there was a gas barbecue area right there too! Beds were really comfortable and whole cottage was really cosy. Shower was bit cramped, in the... More

For the price paid (£600) I didn't expect such a great cottage, but boy was I pleasantly surprised. We stopped at endeavour no 19 and it was really clean and well set out. The site was quiet, tidy and run professionally. Pool was clean but can get busy.Perfect location as only a 10-15 minute walk to Whitby. If there was... More

We stayed in Endeavor Cottage (no9). It's a lovely place, spotlessly clean, really well equipped with comfy beds. The complex is really relaxed and the pool was lovely, perfect for our toddler. There were a couple of play areas and lots of green space, again great for kids. We were on the lower level by the river which was lovely,... More

We have just returned from a week's holiday in Endeavour Cottage (number 14). The cottage was very clean and tidy and set in beautiful surroundings. We had a lovely view out of the kitchen window of the river and watched steam trains passing by and out the back was a lovely seating area to sit outside and enjoy the peace... More

Just got back from a weeks holiday from Whitby and stayed at Captain Cook's Haven Endeavour cottage (No 22). Very peaceful. The cottage had almost everything you need. The only criticisms we have was the shower [alright if you are short - shower head over the eave]; TV channels were very limited [in the bedroom, only the DVD worked] and... More

We took our 8 month old for his first trip away, and the cottage (10) was just perfect. Well equipped, clean, and spacious - the perfect base for days out. The site itself seemed very quiet, and we had a lovely view of the river. We were only a 30 min or so walk into Whitby (but be warned it... More

We have just returned from a weeks holiday in Endeavour Cottage number 14. This cottage was very clean and well equipped. Beautiful view across the river especially when the steam trains were passing. Lots of ducks eager to be fed and rabbits running around the grounds. The only drawback to this cottage is the very steep hill up to the... More

Was very simply staying in a holiday cottage owned by a seperate company but with no leaflets of places to go to in whitby. Whilst walking past the reception I saw they had some leaflets, but was told by both a gardener and the owner I could not have one. Even though they are free and there were loads available.... More

daleananne, Owner at Captain Cook's Haven, responded to this review

What this Gentleman is saying is not true. It just confirms that even people who do not stay in your accommodation can write damning reviews. He did not contact us as owners therefore no unreserved apology was made. He was in fact staying on a neighbouring site with no facilities or amenities and expected to use ours this was explained...

We have just got back from 4 nights away. We stayed in cottage number 31 an upside down house. It was lovely and clean very spacious for 6 adults. The walk in to Whitby was brilliant as were the views. Can't wait to go again.

We stayed in number 8 which is on the lower level. Lovely cute cottage and right next to the river which was a bonus :) just a couple of little things that could have been better; no phone signal inside the cottage, the microwave plate was too big for the microwave and would not rotate, the tv didn't have a...
