Our first stay in Whitby and we stayed at Dove's Haven, one of six cottages on this site. The cottage itself was lovely, nicely furnished and well kitted-out with everything you could need including towels, iron, washing-up liquid, pretty much everything. For a 'small cottage' the downstairs area is very spacious. The bedrooms and bathrooms are under the roof so there is limited headspace, especially when taking a shower, but you get used to it! There is a nice children's play area on site, which our two year-old loved, WiFi in our cottage, and we had lovely fresh eggs from the owners' rescued hens.
Transport is needed as it's a long walk into Whitby itself but worth it for the peace and tranquility of the site. Sainsburys is across the road, handy if you need anything and there is a lovely country walk to Robin Hood's Bay from the cottages.
Our boiler stopped working halfway through our week's stay, and the lovely owner sent her son and daughter straight away to sort it out for us. They are all really nice people.
Would definitely recommend and will likely stay again, we had a lovely holiday, thank you :)
Just returned from a lovely weekend in doves haven
Everything in the cottage anyone would need for their stay was there
Friendly staff , who know all about the area
Just across the field is the cinder track way , a disused railway track which took us on a fantastic walk to robin hoods bay
Would recommend and return again
The owners were very friendly and welcoming on arrival and remained that way during out stay. The cottage is very comfortable and furnished to a high specification. The location is ideal been just outside Whitby giving it a peaceful feel with the town only two minutes drive away. Will certainly be revisiting in the future.

I stayed in April with three friends and the cottage was lovely, just what we were after. Though the bedrooms are little they're perfectly usable and the beds are SO comfortable. The bathrooms are clean and everything works, though as they're tucked under the eaves tall people need to beware the ceiling! Alexandra was helpful and really friendly, and the free-range eggs were a lovely touch. Cottage is well-equipped, inc. iron and ironing board. We'd have loved to stay longer, and will definitely be back!
We stayed for 1 night was really pleased. Owners were very welcoming and we even got some complimentary eggs on arrival :) lovely area and the fact you can take your dog is brill will defiantly be visiting again with my pooch!!
