Drakes cottage is situated in a tranquil setting. The cottage is tastefully decorated and the furnishings are superb. It's about a ten minute drive from Whitby and central to all the beauty spots around that area. Robert and Julie are friendly people who have done a wonderful renovation job on the cottages and land that they are set in. They live in a house on the land and are always around if there should ever be a problem. This cottage is so well equipt,washer,dish washer, wood burner,hair dryer I think they have thought of everything to make your holiday the best. There is great butchers nearby also a bakers and a Spa shop,if you should need them . There are some very good pubs for meals and most are dog friendly. I can't recommend this cottage enough.
Drake cottage is truly a home away from home, currently sat in the living room of the beautiful cottage and appreciating the beautiful decor, high spec kitchen and amazing bedrooms and bathroom! Close to Whitby 10 min drive and some amazing costal walks with our black Labrador Benson. The owners Robert and Julie have created some beautiful cottages in a lovely location, we would recommend this cottage to friends and family and will hopefully be back for another stay soon.

Our third trip to Drakes and still as wonderful. We had another fantastic weekend hosted by the lovely Rob who was as accomodating as always. We were sorry to have missed Julie this time who was poorly (we hope you're feeling better).
As always, Drakes was up to scratch and the usual 5 star accomodation. We did the obligatory trips out early into Whitby and local areas but we would look forward to getting back to put our feet up with a glass of wine and chilling in the lovely cottage in front of the fire.
Good tip for anyone does online shopping, we ordered logs from Asda to be delivered along with our other essentials; made it all a little easier than having to nip out for any during the stay.
We were thrilled to see that Rob has installed a doggie bath/shower next to the cottage; very nice touch for us dog owners. Hot water shower and even a little ramp attached to help the four legged friends to get up and down. Came in extremely handy after a trip with Millie & Dolly to Sandsend and a morning run along the beach! Rob also supplied us with extra doggie. Nothing's too much trouble for their guest and makes staying at Drakes that little more special.
Can't wait to rebook; we love it there and look forward to our weekends away at Drakes.
