This was our second visit to the Nest, we explored more of the local area this time, walking in Farndale( well worth a visit) ! We cooked at the cottage this time and everything was there we needed. The fire was a joy in the evenings as was the bed and sofa. The train to Whitby is a must and so are fish and chips on the beach. A great cottage and will defiantly return, for the cost it is a bargain, 5 stars for a 3 star price.
The Nest is a VERY SMALL compact cottage. It's in a beautiful rural location very close to Whitby, Sandsend and Scarborough. It is very well stocked with crockery and kitchen utensils. Very clean and lots of hot water etc. It could do with a bit of TLC though. There is a pub opposite which was closed on the Monday night so we bought curry's from the local Co-op which is very well stocked. We ate in Sandsend on Tuesday at a gorgeous pub called The Hart Inn (dog friendly) When we arrived back at the cottage we popped over for a drink to the Downe Arms but they were out of cask ales altogether which was disappointing. There is also a Tea room which we didn't visit unfortunately. The cottage is lovely and very old as described. We had a problem with the kitchen lights which seems to be an ongoing problem according to the visitors book. If you like your space then this isn't the place for you. All in all a nice stay but I would not stay again.
The Nest is just splendid. The host Annette was kind to call to check we got there okay and let us know where was good to go etc etc. The weather was very kind which helped. The sofa is just perfect for schooching up on with a book whilst the fire roars. Having the small supermarket a few steps away is just so handy. Considering its location, it is quiet. Having sheep on the doorstep is lovely too. The surroundings are just stunning and The Nest is perfectly located whether by foot, car or train. It is compact but everything you need as a couple, alone or with a hound. We shall return.
The Nest is a great little snug! It is beautifully located and pretty near perfectly formed.The facilities are high quality and perfect for a couple. It is located in the middle of the village and close to a shop and other local amenities making a stay at The Nest really easy and comfortable.
Comfortable cottage with good amenities and easy to travel from to visit places of interest. Road through village during day a little busy but nice and quite on evenings. The owner rings to see if all ok which is nice. In all we had a relaxing week.
A beautifully decorated and equipped cottage. A stone's throw from some stunning walks on the North York moors and close to Whitby and Scarborough. Located in a quaint village with lovely local pubs and village shop and tea rooms.
