“Good Break”
Reviewed November 30, 2011

Enjoyed our week in the cottage, great location, well furnished and maintained. Cottage 32 does need updating but overall it was excellent value for money. The staff were very helpful throughout our stay. The pool is very good and well looked after. Overall we would recommend the complex and will be returning next year. Our 4yr old loved it.

Room Tip: Choose the upside down cottages to avoid walking up the massive hill

we stayed in an upside down cottage on the top of the complex, very well equiped and very clean, we had our 1 year old with us and she loved going down to the river watching the steam train and feeding the ducks, we only had one day of bad weather so on that day we used the pool which was very clean and well worth a visit. Only wish we had was that the cottage we stayed in had seating outside as we spent most of our time outside enjoying the weather. walking into whitby is advisable down the old track saves trying to park and doesnt take that long. What more can i say it was that enjoyable we have already booked to go back next year.

I stayed at these cottages with my wife and 15 year old son in September. Been here three times and as usual, had a wonderful stay. The cottage was very comfortable with everyting that you could need. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The swimming pool is heated and very clean, had a great time in Whitby, it only took 15 minutes to walk into town and cost about a fiver back in a taxi. (After a few glasses of wine), the views are to die for, it was lovely looking out over the river every morning with the ducks nesting by the front door. All in all, fantastic stay in a lovely cottage in a beautiful part of the world, we will be back x x

We stayed at number 30 for half term. There was 5 people (can sleep up to 6 !). The whole property is looking very tired. Only one bathroom to share between us all with an old mira shower which was pathetic! Toilet seat falling off, bed extremly uncomfartable. The owners would be well advised to visit their property and maybe apend some money on some renovations.
On the plus side the site is in a great location in Whitby. Love the area ! hated the property !

This is our fourth visit to the site, it is lovely and quiet but perfect for families. There are lovely playgrounds for younger kids and a great swimming pool. The site is next to the River Esk and early morning is a great time to see the salmon leaping out of the water. There is plenty to do around and about but you do need a car. A great place to stay what ever the time of year

Room Tip: Book early all the houses are good

Booked" Haven cottage" no15 through Hoseasons,and although its in the same area as captain cooks haven i think its privately owned.The pictures looked lovely on the website and lived up to our expectations.The quality of bedding,towels and furnishings were all good quality.Its in a lovely peaceful area but only a lovely 20min walk along the old viaduct into Whitby.We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day break and wished we had booked longer.

As a family we stayed in a caravan at this park - valley view caravan !!!
Didn't have double glazed windows / tap in kitchen leaked / heating was pathetic - had to use boost button to warm caravan then it only lasted 2 hours - the nights were really cold - not ideal for a young baby !!
On a good note - area nice

Room Tip: just don't book the caravan
