“Great Cottage, Superb Location”
Reviewed May 23, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Wonderful location very peaceful setting next to the river watched the heron fishing every evening. Only a short car journey into Whitby centre - nice walk via the viaduct - the most direct route. Superb property one of the best equipped holiday lets I have been in. The owners couldn't have been more helpful letting us book at very short notice. Hope to be back in the very near future.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed May 17, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The cottage is surprisingly spacious. It was clean, very comfortable and quiet. There are three levels and each level has a toilet / bathroom. We didn't walk into Whitby from the cottage but it is only a short drive or taxi journey. We certainly will recommend this cottage, thanks.

“Great cottage, great location and great price!”
Reviewed May 3, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed with friends for a Birthday with dog intending to have a relaxing weekend and walk the hound! Short walk into Whitby but far enough away to be peaceful (only a £6 taxi/5 minute drive if you dont want to walk). Located right next to the cinder track which takes you right to the centre of town or towards Scarborough. I wasnt sure what i should expect for the price i paid and was pleasantly suprised to find a clean, tidy and well equipped and deceiving spacious cottage. Coincidentally booked the weekend of Tour De Yorshire without knowing but made a nice suprise with great atmosphere. Perfect for guests for any purpose. Owner suplied useful information prior to arrival including directions and places to eat/drink - very useful. As a beginner photographer, there is some great scenery, architecture wildlife around to take advantage of - particularly the old railway viaduct right ouotside the door and the wildlife on the river. Thank you, will definately book again.

Fantastic weekend at Kauri cottage, would highly recommend.
The cottage is immaculately clean with modern and cosy decor. The views from the rooms are lovely with a very calming atmosphere, not far from the great town of Whitby, 10 out of 10.... can't wait to return.

A fantastic cottage with everything needed for a home from home. Warm, quiet, spacious, good view ease of parking. We had a wonderful family break between Christmas and New Year.

“A superb holiday cottage in Whitby”
Reviewed December 7, 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed Fri-Sun early December, we arrived to find that the owners had tastefully decorated the cottage for Christmas which the young kids loved as our decorations have not gone up yet!
Location is fabulous, on the banks of the river Esk snuggled beneath the Victorian 'Larpool viaduct', very quiet and peaceful (except for the local rooks at dusk!) yet it is only a few minutes drive from the heart of Whitby and has easy access to the local supermarket.
The cottage itself easily accomodated our party of 4 adults and 3 young children, and had everything we could possibly need, Martin & Julie certainly keep the property in excellent condition and we would definitely recommend it to our friends and family.

Good afternoon Daniel - many thanks for taking the time to post a review for us - pleased that your kids were happy with the decorations !!

We refurbish the cottage annually as it is important to both us as owners and all our guests that we maintain the cottage to a high standard - we thank you for your appreciation of the hard work and cost that goes into keeping the cottage in excellent condition !!

Personal recommendations are also much appreciated and we will hopefully welcome some of our friends and family to Kauri in the future.
