“Great place to stay.”
Reviewed April 14, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Just returned from a short break in this lovely warm and cosy cottage with my husband, daughter, son-in-law and two year old grandson. We arrived on a very cold Monday afternoon and where delighted with the warm, clean and well equipped cottage. We quickly felt at home and Henry (2) enjoyed running around the green meeting the ducks and watching the steam trains by the river. Ideally placed for Whitby and surrounding area we will certainly be back again, hopefully in warmer weather! Thank you for providing such a welcoming cottage.

“Chilled to the max”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Just returned from a fabulous weekend at Kauri Cottage spent with hubby and friends. The cottage is in a perfect location just 5 minutes from Whitby by car or a lovely 20 minute walk. The view from the cottage is of an amazing viaduct and a lovely river with ducks busy waddling around. The cottage is well equipped for both long weekends or longer stays and apart from your towels it has everything you would need. Whether you want to just chill or have a walking/cycling break the cottage is perfect. We will definitely be returning and our friends have just booked a week long stay on the back of the weekend break.

“Excellent Accommodation”
Reviewed October 17, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

I have just returned from a weekend at Kauri Cottage. The accommodation was much more spacious than I had expected, was very comfortable and well equipped. It is located away from Whitby town centre so you need to be prepared for a short walk or take your car but this is also a benefit and exactly what we wanted. The setting below the viaduct by the side the river is wonderful.
