Stopped in Whitby at the B&B for a couple of nights. Vanessa & Martin, the hosts, were friendly, nothing too much trouble and even helped fetch luggage from the car parked down the street. Breakfasts were very, very good. The B&B was spotlessly clean. Couldn't fault it - as I said in title - absolute gem of a B&B. The... More

From our first step into their home up to the point we departed their care for us as guests was second to none. What they do and... More

A last minute booking and I was in luck as this place is beautiful, well kept and so comfy. Top of the house room had lots of space and a great bathroom with shower. The breakfast choice was great, beautiful fruit salad and yogurt and granola pots. The full English was beautiful, wonderful quality of produce.
