“Lovely peaceful location”
Reviewed September 9, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Lovely well equipped cottage in a great location overlooking the river. Very clean and comfortable and also received a welcome pack including some lovely biscuits. Excellent location for walking with our dog as could walk on tracks as far as we wanted.
Whitby and Ruswarp within easy walking distance on country walks and the tidal river constantly changed.
Had such a peaceful and stress free holiday.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

What a lovely cottage. It is perfect for a self catering holiday, fully equipped and so clean. You can walk into Whitby over the Larpool Viaduct at the top of the road. we watched the steam train pass by every day and also the pleasure boats going up and down the river Esk just outside. We will certainly go back.

“We enjoyed our stay”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We had a very pleasant stay in April. The cottage is very well equipped and well located for walking into Whitby. We were going to stay again in August but had to cancel due to a bereavement. Not certain if we will get our deposit back, although we see it has been re-let.

Management Response
Aug 15, 2013
I appreciate anyone taking the time to review our property. We do try to refund all payments if we are able to re-book without any loss, and often do so. Unfortunately this cancelled week, being Mon to Mon could NOT be re-sold.We kept the dates available as long as possible, then had to show them as unavailable, due to cleaning availability and our own personal commitments.

“too many stairs & very drafty in kitchen + awful utensils - no comfortable places to sit & awkward dutch barn doors”

Dog food under furniture + doggy hair!? Terrible shoddy kitchenware worse than I would camp with & dangerous frying pan like tin can buckled when heated - worse was the toxic glade/fabreeze puffed out in bed/rm & LR the smell had impregnated the cheap linens like high school hallway - the saving grace was the lovely ducks & the tranquil river esk surroundingsPS Tried to use put U up but digustingly dirty with hairs all over & parts disintigrating even a darned area to a duvey cover = they are about 5 quid in Argos or a charity shop??!!

Liked least: all of the interior especially bedroom & kitchen - the bedroom made me sick because of stinking cheap perfume which was toxic instead of opening a window they had gone overboard with the fake smells

Management Response

I am surprised to say the least by this review, especially as these comments are not reflected in our visitor's book by this same customer, who in fact left a favourable report. I challenge anyone to view the visitor's book, which contains two years of complementary reviews. On this site our previous reviews have all been 5 star. Prior to this customer's arrival double glazing was installed throughout the property so I would not expect to find any drafts. The doors are a traditional solid wood cottage style, and we clearly advertise that the accommodation is set on 3 floors, and hence has the corresponding number of stairs. We pride ourselves on our cleaning standards and are disappointed at this customer's comments.
