A harbour courtyard, great views of the harbour and rooftops, central location, really spacious, comfortable, well decorated and equipped to a high standard, unique layout, relaxing. Highly recommended again!

“Luxury in the heart of Whitby”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

This is the best accommodation we've ever had in Whitby, and we've stayed in a fair few over the years! The location is perfect, with a lovely private yard in the evenings with views of the harbour. The flat is full of character, every room has a view of either the estuary or the narrow lane outside which is full of life by day and relatively peaceful by night - you're on first floor above the lane so it's not intrusive at all. The owners have made it very comfortable with lots of lovely added touches including a good book and DVD collection. The bedrooms are spacious and luxurious and with two bathrooms and a downstairs loo, plenty of space for everyone. Great selection of restaurants and take-aways on your doorstep. Would highly recommend and hope to return soon.

“GREAT LAST MINUTE BREAK”
Reviewed November 19, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

This was a spur of the moment thing and a lucky, random find on the Internet. We've found an absolute gem. Perfectly situated and a lovely house with bags of character and an unbeatable view. We will be back ... but stay for longer next time!

“tranquility at its best”
Reviewed July 14, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I stayed at the cottage with some friends for a weekend break in the end of june and we all had a really good experience. The place was clean, tidy, welcoming and felt homely. The whole experience from start to finish was great and i would recommend staying here, we have already made plans to come back this year. All i can say is excellent stay and excellent service.

We've stayed in Whitby on several previous occasions and this was the best yet for location and quality of accommodation. Everything about the property was as, or better than, expected and we would thoroughly recommend it.

“Lovely weekend break”
Reviewed June 1, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

person found this review helpful

Spent a lovely weekend (11th to 13th May 2012) at this beautiful cottage. The website does not do the property justice, its a really nice suprise when you walk in to find its so much better!. I do not think you will find a more well presented and spacious 2 bed cottage in Whitby (i looked at just about every property to rent).

The owners have thoughtfully pretty much covered everything you would need, even down to the box of toys for our 4yr old daughter to play with! The new kingsize bed was so comfortable, we all slept really well and we loved waking to the amazing harbour views. Our little girl also loved the teddys provided to keep the little ones company during their stay.

The property felt very secure on an evening as you have 2 easy to access gates to get through to enter. Also added bonus on an evening is having the beautiful Captain Cook Museums courtyard to yourself, the harbour views are so beautiful on an evening.

The only one thing thats missing from this really lovely property, is WiFi.

Highly recommend to anyone who likes to rent good quality properties. Will most definitely be returning in the future.

“Awesome”

Really liked the accommodation - clean and high spec - the dishwasher made the holiday!!

A few too many stairs for our little one (cos she just has to explore) but managed to cordon her off with the supplied safety gate - a fixed gate would have been much better for her age but the pressure gate did the job. Won't be an issue when we return next year!
