“A wonderful cottage in a perfect location.”
Reviewed September 1, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Just had a week in Whitby staying at Gulls Cry Cottage and what a lovely cottage it is. Refurbished to a high srandard, I can't pick a fault to it. Definitely would stay there again. Anybody wanting to stay in Whitby please consider this cottage before booking any other.

“Beautiful Cottage, home from home”
Reviewed August 30, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

My mother, 2 daughters & 2 spouses with 1 5yr old neice were the party to stay in Gulls Cry. We had a lovely stay here, very comfortable place, we felt right at home, just maybe a little "cosy" for 5 & half people. Everything was of a very high standard & finish, the decoration was very nice & we all loved the furniture! Please don't let the parking issue put you off, there is plenty room to unload & then park up somewhere close. We had no complaints about the cottage, maybe just a couple of suggestions! Wi fi would be good. A freezer compartment of some kind - especilally for ice for G 'n' T's! A dishwasher would be useful. Lastly a much bigger sign outside!!
All in all, we had a lovely first time in Whitby & absolutely not the last!

Many thanks for a great review, I am trying! lol. With some forward thinking I am hoping to have WiFi and full SKY package in Gulls Cry shortly. Freezer/Dishwasher will have to work on that one as the kitchen is full already and the BOSCH fridge cost an arm and a leg earlier this year so wouldn't really want to replace just yet. Will consider a small freezer in Summer House when up and running.
Thank you for pointing out how easy parking is, even in peak season

“First Class”
Reviewed July 1, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

This cottage is a fantastic base for a family holiday, it really has everything you could want and is so central that everything is only a 5-10 min walk away. Parking really was not a problem and you can do so free of charge less than a 3min walk up a small road.
The place was spotless and we felt very much at home. Colin the owner gave all the info we needed and it was very easy to find following his directions.

person found this review helpful

we stayed at Gulls Cry Cottage Fri. to Tues over Jubilee weekend......what a place the cottage is beautiful could not fault anything at all about the place. Colin (the owner) was on hand (phone) to help out at every opportunity. The only thing i can think of as a negative is the parking but we were made aware of this before we arrived and didnt really have a problem parking. We will hopefully re-visit in the near future and will recommend to friends and family who are visiting Whitby.

Thank you for a wonderful review, I take on board all comments, positive or negative and have been trying my best to obtain a car parking area for Gulls Cry Cottage. Unfortunately all car parks in Whitby have long waiting lists and I am currently on 5 waiting lists to give an even more complete and comprehensive package.
I do give precise details for convenient parking usually only a few minutes from the cottage.

Many thanks for a wonderful review. I have attempted to cover as many possibilities as possible to make the cottage a wonderful place to stay. It has taken over 18mths to renovate but I am still prepared to modify it, should general opinion suggest modifications to improve it.

“Beautiful cottage in the perfect location.”
Reviewed April 18, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

I stayed at Gulls Cry Cottage in March with 2 friends, we stayed for 3 nights. The cottage was excellent, it had just been refurbished and all the fixtures and fittings were brand new and of good quality. It was a really cosy cottage and was very well equipped. It is situated just a couple of streets back from the front and I'd say it's in the perfect location! Given that it's so close to the centre it's very quiet and the only noise we could hear was the seagulls! I have to say, it felt like a home away from home. I would highly recommend it and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if I visited Whitby, which is very likely!
