My husband and I recently stayed at the Porthole to celebrate my 50th birthday. What a fantastic little Gem this is and has the most wonderful views. We was lucky enough to have brilliant weather and really enjoyed the walk into Whitby along the beach, this takes about an hour. We got a taxi back which cost just under £7.00. You have every thing from a pub which serves good bar meals to the Woodlands Bistro that cooks steak to perfection, both are only a short walk away.

Will be booking again soon for next year

We stayed in the Sunnybank house which is situated on the beach front,there were two familys (9) with five children aged between 6 and 12.The house was immaculate and had everything we needed.The owners were on hand to answer any queries.
Fantastic views from nearly every window of the beach and Whitby.We are going back in the New Year and we cannot wait.

In search of a few days respite and retreat, I found the Porthole absolutely perfect. Perched in a completely private spot overlooking the beach, it's magically positioned with views to the south to Whitby and the Abbey and, to the north, to the cliffs and the promise of magnificent walks along the Cleveland Way. The sound of the waves and the constant change of sea and sky were simply lovely.
The room's very comfortable (large bed, small table and two chairs, galley kitchen with generous breakfast suppies, bathroom with tub / shower, french doors opening onto the deck). The owners' thoughtfulness and attention to detail were much in evidence: fresh fruit, a bottle of wine, helpful suggestions about places to eat, visit, walk etc..
I'm looking forward to going back.

The house is in a great location on the hill overlooking a huge beach. As the tide is going out it's possible to walk all the way along the beach into Whitby. We did this a couple of times and got the bus back. The local shop is a two minute walk and stocks most things and is of a good standard but if you need a superamrket Whitby is a ten minute drive away.Everything was clean, worked as expected and it is fitted to a good standard. The nearby pub serves good food and is a very short walk away. There is another restaurant if required. The view from the terrace is fantastic, and it's nice to sit out with a morning cuppa watching the waves lap in. The owner lives nearby in case there are any problems. We rent different properties every year and are limited to where we can go because we have to take our small dog with us. I would say that this property definitely is one of the better ones we have rented due to it's location, cleanliness and standard of accomodation and would definitely recommend it.

We were lucky to get a cancellation for exactly the two nights we wanted. The room is completely private, not overlooked, has separate private access, and faces straight out to sea. A delightful deck terrace for breakfast al fresco, and a few yards walk to the magnificent beach. The room is beautifully put together with lovely personal touches, and a mini-kitchenette provides all you need for a delightful breakfast. Need to book well ahead!
