“Home from home, comfy, clean and cosy.”
Reviewed April 10, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Very reasonably priced for what it is. Conveniently located. The proprietor has done a fantastic job renovating the place to a very high standard. I will recommend this to all my family and friends.

Really appreciate that Gulls Cry has been pointed out as reasonably priced. We strive to keep our standards above most, and at the very least least on a Par with the Best in Whitby, yet keep our pricing realistic.
Thank you so much for a positive review.

“Beautiful cottage”

My boyfriend and I stayed here in the middle of February and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay! The cottage is beautiful and well kept. Everything has been thought of from the little tubs of sauces to the pre downloaded movies on the tv.
We had an absolutely wonderful time here and we will definitely be staying again!

Would highly recommend

It's Fantastic that couples believe it's still good value when booking Gulls Cry for that Special Occasion.
The Cottage sleeps 6, but we appreciate our selves when we visit a lesser number makes it even more cosy/comfortable and special.
You can curl up on the Big Comfy Sofas and relax in front of the Log Fire in Privacy.

“Amazing..... Just the best!!!”

person found this review helpful

Had a wonderful weekend stay in this beautiful cottage! Absolutely faultless.... the location was central but tucked away which added to its charm! From entering the cottage, we felt so at home.... It's beautifully decorated and furnished, well equipped, warm, cosy and the log burner adds to the ambience! Colin was great to deal with and went out of his way to ensure we all had a great weekend - even a courtesy call when we arrived to make sure all was ok. It was amazing, our favourite cottage ever! We'll be back ... Can't wait to stay there in the summer months and spend time in the lovely courtyard and summer house! Thank you for sharing your home with us and helping 3 generations make happy memories!!

The location is perfect for quick access to Whitby town. Lots of shops and restaurants within 5 mins walk. We stayed here for a family birthday weekend away and it was a great size for 5 people. Very clean and tidy with beautiful decor throughout. The log burner was nice on a winters evening. It was great to have a television in all of the bedrooms. We felt it was a home from home and have already booked our next stay at Gulls Cry Cottage. Can't wait!

“Perfect for a family Christmas and New Year.”
Reviewed January 9, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The location is very convenient for shops, restaurants and exploring the sea front and around the quaint streets of Whitby but Gulls Cry is also a quiet and charming spot to enjoy relaxing at home. We spent two weeks over Christmas and New Year with our adult children, we were 5 in all. The house is unusually well equipped, absolutely spotless and everything to a high standard. We liked the stylish bathroom, masses of hot water, plentiful towels in such a charming and comfortable cottage. Colin, the owner, was very helpful. He obtained good logs for the woodburner, parking permits for us all and set up a Christmas tree and lots of nice Christmas touches, even down to Santa tea towels! There was a very generous welcome pack waiting for us. It was all so convenient and comfortable; we could hop out for a walk on the pier and then come back for a sit by the fire and enjoy the impressively extensive wide screen tv channels. We had a marvellous Christmas and New Year with our family and Gulls Cry made it so easy and stress free. Many people book short breaks but we enjoyed every minute of our two weeks in Gulls Cry, warm and cosy in the cottage and everything on the doorstep for enjoying Whitby and all it has to offer.

“Fabulous cottage and in great location”
Reviewed November 26, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed in this cottage with friends for 2 nights. It was exactly what we wanted. It is in a fabulous location with a fish a chip shop one street away. It is beautifully maintained to a very high standard. Colin , the owner was extremely helpful suggesting restaurants and supplying contact numbers. We would have no problems recommending this cottage to friends. This was our first trip to Whitby and we would like to return to this cottage in warmer weather to make use of the summer house and barbeque in the courtyard at the rear of the cottage.
Thank you Colin for making our first trip to Whitby very enjoyable - our friends were impressed with the cottage too

Fantastic review for us again, although we have put an incredible amount of effort into Gulls Cry from day one we are still overjoyed that guests such as Debbie and her friends appreciate it so much.
We'll continue to keep up the standard and upgrade and improve the Cottage as and when we can, or when guests comments make it necessary. Thank you.
