“Great getaway”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A really good holiday cottage. Very clean accommodation with great first floor lounge and balcony to relax. Good location, pleasant site with Whitby and all it has to offer a short walk away. We enjoyed being on the doorstep of the Cinder Track which provides great walking access both north and south. The wifi was an added bonus especially when you have teenagers!

“Love it!”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is the third time we have stayed at Kauri Cottage and we just love it! The location is picture postcard and the accomodation is excellent. Everything you need, the house is immaculate. A welcome addition of BT Vision and wi-fi this year added to the quality. My son loves the river and the location is ideal for walks, bike riding or jogging. Cant wait to go back.

“Brilliant in every way!”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at Kauri Cottage with our family- kids,grandchildren and dog- and had the most brilliant time!Everything you could wish for was provided-even a coffee percolator ... And games to play whilst relaxing! Cottage was extremely clean and well equipped! Lovely view across the River Esk and the amazing viaduct! Very accessible for Whitby and the coast ,I would thoroughly recommend the cottage and would love to go again!

“Best self catering we have ever stayed in!”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

What a little gem of a find! Booked this for a Monday to Friday stay.

Love the tea and coffee welcome pack.

This self catering was the best I have ever stayed in. There is nothing you could want for.

The location is stunning.

We will definitely be returning and would be back in May if it wasn't already booked.

If you are looking at booking, don't hesitate, book it, you won't regret it :-)

“A great holiday”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Me, my mum, son, brother and his girlfriend stayed at Kauri cottage for a week in February. It was our second stay after a short but amazing first visit. The house has plenty of living space so perfect for a family visit. The location was wonderful and we all enjoyed the walk into Whitby. The house was warm, comfortable and decorated to a high standard. Absolutely nothing has been missed. We had a fantastic stay with lots of laughs, relaxation and wine. The only disappointment was having to leave at the end of the week. We have already booked our summer visit.

“Relaxing as ever”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 for a stay in March 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Our third visit as a party of three couples and it was as fabulous as ever. We all say that we start to relax and unwind as soon as we step through the door. Since our last visit, the already immaculate accommodation, had been redecorated throughout and wifi installed. It really is a testament to the owners that they continually assess customers feedbacks and address them. It's a perfect location for Whitby and the surrounding areas and we have stayed there as a couple, with family, with friends and a gaggle of girlfriends. It's perfect for all and we are back again in July...can't wait.

I have recently stayed at the cottage with my wife and 16 week old baby--the property was immaculate and the pictures don't do the location or property justice. It was an ideal location and even the steep but short hill out of the complex was not a hardship!!! We had a problem with the central heating on one of the days but after contacting the owners--Martin and Julie--the problem was rectified before we had even returned in the afternoon.
I cannot fault any of the booking process etc by the owners and nothing seemed to much trouble.
We shall be returning without fail.
