I stayed here in April for a week with my parents and my daughter....what an amazing place!!

We arrived at the cottage to be greeted by Tracy, the owner and we were given the keys. Riverbank cottage is in the perfect location. Within a short walk to the train station and shops and just outside Whitby itself.

The cottage was beautiful inside and out. There was a parking space around the back of the cottage which was right next to the back door for easy access with our luggage.

Tracy had prepared a hamper containing lots of goodies like biscuits, chocolate,tea and wine and had stocked the fridge with milk,butter and orange juice.There was also fresh bread and cupcakes from the local bakery which were truly delicious!

Upstairs in the twin bedroom there was a Easter egg on the bed with my daughters name iced onto it. She was so happy when she saw it and we thought this was a lovely, kind gesture.

The cottage was beautifully set out. It was spacious and well presented and there wasn't anything that hadn't been thought of. There was a huge garden with a summerhouse overlooking the river and a place to sit out and eat if you wanted to.

The bedrooms were a good size and the beds were very comfortable.The rooms were very clean and airy and the twin room had a beautiful view of the river .At certain times you even could see the steamtrains in the distance. There were Tvs in both bedrooms, local information leaflets,maps and train timetables in the living room along with board games,books and even free WiFi!

This has got to be the best place I have ever stayed whilst on holiday.I felt relaxed and comfortable and felt at home. I would recommend this cottage very highly!
