“Slightly disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Location was good and the property was well equipped. A sofa to relax on would have been good. Did not like the steep, narrow winding stairs inside and was disappointed that the only view of the harbour was from the attic bedroom window. Eating breakfast overlooking the shed in the neighbour's garden was not something I had anticipated.

Parking on the road outside the property was a bit of a problem. In the peak season it must be almost impossible.

Overall, a lovely stay in Whitby but not quite the romantic idyll I had imagined.

“Perfect harbour cottage for a romantic break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed here in August after a week in York and enjoyed the change of pace immensely. A lovely welcome pack on arrival was much appreciated, and the cottage was beautifully clean and well presented with everything we needed for a week. Parked on Green Lane and enjoyed day trips to Staithes and Sandsend as well as lots of ambles around Whitby. The bathroom is lovely! Just remember to draw the blind when stripping off as its overlooked from every window by the houses behind!! The internal steps are very steep and as we are both very tall, it was a little awkward but nothing detracts from the charm here and we look forward to returning! The hosts were helpful and responsive when booking and the cost for the week very reasonable. Highly recommended.

“Perfect getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Wonderful holiday home for 2 adults. Everything we needed for a relaxing stay provided. Thank you for the lovely wine, milk and chocolate cookies on arrival - very welcome. Did not use the car for the whole week. Plenty to see and do in Whitby. Lovely walks along the coastal paths, trip on the whale watching boat, visit to the Pavilion to watch the local am drams perform, and a very luxurious meal on the steam train from Grosmont to Pickering. What a lovely holiday - thank you.
