This lovely cottage is only a 5 minute drive from the centre of Whitby, but it is so quiet and peaceful. There is a Sainsbury's almost opposite the entrance to the site, and also a public house. The cottage its self is small but jam packed with character providing all the amenities needed for a short break. There are 2 bedrooms both ensuite. It is open plan downstairs but is so cosy and homely. It is set in lovely grounds, with a children's play area, barbecue and games room. The real bonus for us that it is pet friendly. Can't wait to visit again soon.
The place where we stayed was good, lovely and quiet, clean and tidy,the kids loved it, so that's all that matters, the chickens are a bit over friendly hahaha
We have just returned from a lovely relaxed weekend in this lovely little cottage. It was ideal for the 4 of us and our dog. It is ideally situated to be able to tour Whitby and the surrounding arears. The cottage had everything we needed, I would use the cottage again and would recommend the cottage to anyone wanting a relaxed place to stay. It was only 40 mins walk to the centre of Whitby and there are some lovely walks to take.
OK - so the reason we found this place 'home from home' is that we've got geese, ducks and chickens at home, and this place has all these and so much more besides!! It is well worth taking the time to visit all the rescue birds on the site.
Four of us stayed - all adults. We found the cottage extremely well equipped and clean. We had been warned of the low beams in the bedrooms so were ready for this. They ARE low and I'd like to try and re-arrange the beds so that the risk of banging your head is reduced - but I'm sure the owners have thought of this. We had plenty of hot water and the showers worked well. The site is situated next to a sewage treatment works but during our stay - with temperatures in the 70s - the smell was barely noticable. The STW is screened with trees.
We had dogs with us and they really enjoyed the open spaces to play safely. For us the games room was an added bonus.
The beauty of this place is its location. It is in open countryside yet is only a 5 - 10 minute drive from all the attractions in Whitby. It is also a great base from which to explore the North York Moors, Robin Hood's Bay and Scarborough. A lovely little holiday cottage in a great location.
Well equipped, warm,very clean cottage.In a good location for Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay and Staithes.First night it was very quiet.Second night was noisy, the communicating door does not stop noise from next door, and allows cigarette smoke through.As non-smokers this was unpleasant.Apart from this, it is a lovely holiday cottage.
