“A lovely, quirky, welcoming place to stay”

From booking to the end of the stay we had a really good experience . We were recommended the Crows Nest by friends and it really lived up to the recommendation.
The property smelt lovely and fresh when we arrived and gave the impression of being clean and well kept and it was. There were many lovely, quirky little touches which we kept discovering throughout our stay. Well worth the money and we will certainly return.

Also within easy, flat walking distance of loads of nice restaurants and amenities

The cottage itself exceeded expectations and was furnished and equipped to a very high standard - it felt like home from home. Tea, coffee, biscuits and milk a nice touch. The location is ideal for all of Whitby's amenities.

“Perfect location, perfect cottage, perfect price.... Just perfect!”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

A much needed break in a quaint cottage in beautiful Whitby. Everything you need within the cottage and everything else with half a mile..... Historical sights, great restaurants and pubs, amusements for the kids and fishing on the doorstep. Thank you to the owner for the welcome pack and extra touches (dish cloth, tea towels and towels)which make it feel more like a holiday. I've taken lots of cards to recommend to friends and family and I will visit again for certain x
