Only stayed for 1 night, but what a fantastic place. Everything you need, plenty of space, cosy and warm. Close to the town, but so quiet and peaceful. Great value for money and would recommend.

Standard of cleanliness was poor. The cutlery was missing knives .Only three dishes .poor quality tea spoons..1 tea towel .Overall very disappointing . With a little care, attention and a small investment these problems could be rectified. The smell from the sewerage plant next door was awful at times.

“Lovely and quiet”

Lovely quiet location with some beautiful walks and very close to Sainsburys. Cottage had everything we needed and if you had young children the play area is superb. Owners very helpful and friendly. Games room has a pool table so make sure you have some 50ps. There is a washer dryer so it doesn't matter if it rains. Bit too long a walk into Whitby centre-about 45 mins, but several buses go from Sainsburys. .

Having read reviews before going I was slightly put off by some I read. I was pleasantly surprised and delighted with the cottage and surroundings. The owners who live in the main building saw us arrive and came over to welcome us and show us around. They are very friendly, happy to help if needed, leaving you to enjoy your stay. The cottage is as described, a little smaller than I was expecting but certainly comfortable, fully equipt with all kitchen essentials and includes everything, even the beds are made up and plenty of towels. The cottage is a little tired but the positives deffinately out way the negatives. Yes its next to Whitby water works but whilst we were there I can honestly say that there was no smell on arrival or for the first two days and only smelt a couple of times. I have a very sensitive nose so was very relieved! We will deffinately go back if in the area again

“Lovely accommodation and location for holidaying in Whitby and the North York moors.”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

lovely quiet location on the outskirts of Whitby. Furnishings very comfortable especially the beds. The conversertions from farm buildings have been tastefully done. Will certainly book again.
