“Wonderful apartment”
Reviewed April 17, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This apartment is amazing, beautiful and spacious with every facility you could think of. The twin bedroom is perfect but the master bedroom (en-suite too!) is like something out of a magazine! Massive with a big comfy bed. 3 bathrooms, one with an almost free standing big bath and a lovely big family kitchen. In the living room there is a false balcony with an amazing view out over the entrance of the Captain Cook museum out to the water and beyond. A weekend was not long enough! And if there are four of you staying, you are less per head a night than you would be in a cramped b&b. Will be back very soon hopefully!

“NO fish and chips!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Wonderful apartment and excellent location in the old part of town. Super views, courtyard and loved the Church Street area. And we managed to avoid fish & chips during our stay! Pie & Mash restaurant good though.

“Excellent as always”
Reviewed January 21, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Another fantastic break at Grape Lane Whitby. A central location with lovely views, a harbour side yard and great facilities. Warm, comfortable and unique. Great base for walking and nights out in Whitby.

“DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE...”
Reviewed January 18, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Returned here for 4 days, daughter came down for a couple of days, and fell back in love with this place again!
Since my last visit, 3-4 years ago, the TV has changed to a larger flatscreen one, which was a big improvement, excellent reception as well. I can honestly find no negatives in this apartment... warm, stylish and extremely comfortable, with lovely views across the harbour.
Emma, the owner, is a delight to communicate with... so professional and helpful. She gave us a brilliant price as we were returning clients, so got a 5% discount, and also as it was a late booking, we got a fantastic discount for this too!
The apartment is so central to everything, it's location really can't be beaten.
We will certainly return again, for longer next time - can't wait!

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Just got back from a lovely stay at Whitby Retreats. A really lovely cottage with very well stocked kitchen! Excellent service too from Emma who arranged for champagne and helium ballon for my husbands birthday thank you! The cottage is in a great location in the centre of the town and is very clean and spacious the kids loved it too.

“Perfect in everyway !!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed here with 2 friends and had the most amazing weekend. The cottage is very spacious and has everything you need for a weekend away. The complimentary bottle of wine on arrival was a nice touch. The views from the cottage are fantastic. We even enjoyed a nice glass of wine in the museum courtyard once the museum was closed. The location is spot on and we managed to get parked about a 10 min walk away which was great as we left the cars there all weekend. We will be back for sure.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We stayed here for a short break to celebrate our wedding anniversary/husband's birthday in March. We had a great time in Whitby and the accommodation definitely contributed to that. It is in a fantastic central location, ideal for us with little children as we could nip backwards and forwards as needed. The apartment was equipped with most things we needed and was very comfortable with great views, the only slight issue was parking as had to park a little distance away but that's the compromise for being right in the heart of the town. Can highly recommend the little pie and mash shop just around the corner too. All in all highly recommended.
