Lovely 3 storey cottage opposite the harbour, well furnished with everything you need.
Beds are really comfortable and cottage very clean. The cottage is well maintained and homely.
It is approx 10 mins walk to the town and 20 mins to the beach from the cottage.
There is a pub that does good food called the middle earth inn about 2 minutes from the cottage and the staff are friendly.
Everything is in walking distance and we never used the car all week, as the parking is hectic in Whitby.
We went on the steam train to Goathland (heartbeat programme filmed) which was good and you can see the train from the cottage, as it leaves and enters the station.
There is a large coop store in the town for everything you need.
We really enjoyed our stay and would visit again.
We stayed at Harbour View Cottage for 9 nights in total. On arrival, we were gobsmacked at how homely, clean and welcoming it was - an absolute gem and a credit to the owners!
The cottage was described as having all of the 'basics' for a pleasant stay however, this was somewhat an understatement as it had absolutely everything we needed and more - it even had an egg timer!! It was like home from home for us.....
The beds in both bedrooms were really comfortable and had good quality pillows, bedding and linen - More superior than some 4* hotels we've stayed at previously.
The cottage is 3-storey and has great views of the harbour, has plenty of free street parking although it does get busy in peak season and is just a 5-minute walk to the centre of Whitby.
We ate out on several occasions during our stay. Our favourites places to name a few were Humble Pie & Mash, Moutreys Italian and the fish & chip shop just next to the cottage - better than Magpie in our opinion!!
There are no shortage of pubs/bars in Whitby - our favourites being the Middle Earth Tavern which is just a stones throw from the cottage and of course, the Jolly Sailor for a value for money Yorkshire pint or two....!
Fabulous - we will definitely stay at Harbour View Cottage in the future and will be recommending to all our friends and family too.
