Breakfast very high quality & set us up nicely each day before we set out to explore. Wouldn't look elsewhere for a return trip to Whitby - unless they... More

It is a quite spacious room with all the amenities any traveler could want. The bed was extra large, comfy and made for an excellent... More

This was my second visit to High Tor, and it keeps getting better and better. Stayed in room 7, spacious room on the ground floor with cozy bathroom, and despite it's location next to the kitchen and stairs we were never disturbed by other guests or the breakfast prep. The room was very pleasant and I'm told is about to... More

We arrived for a weekend pre-christmas visit, and were warmly welcomed by the proprietor. She was beyond helpful and was happy to carry my case up the flights of stairs (even though I refused to accept as I'm a gentleman!). The decor of the house was fantastic, and the cleanliness was fantastic. The room was exactly as described, and the... More

We stayed in room 2, which was the largest b & b room we've ever stayed in. It had an en-suite bathroom and little porch area which was good for leaving coats, etc. The room was decorated to a really high standard and was spotlessly clean. The bed a super kingsize. Sooooo comfortable. Best nights sleep I'd had for years!... More
