Located a very short walk to the Whitby sea front and parade, the hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming and the food was top notch. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are wanting to visit Whitby!

What a delightfull find. Paula, Peter and the delightfull Densil gave us a lovely warm welcome with the offer a glass of wine and fruitcake on arrival. Bit disapointed the football was not on because our view of the pitch was fantastic. The room was lovely clean and well stocked with tea and coffee. We are returning.

What can I say? Riftswood is a lovely, clean, home from home B&B, run by the lovely Paula & Peter & their lovely dog Denzil! On arrival we were warmly welcomed & offered wine/tea/coffee & cake.

We stayed in room 1(they only have 3), which was fine except the toilet which was private was outside the room, although the shower etc was in the room. The room was a bit small but perfectly formed. The breakfast was excellent ,with very good local Ingredients.
