“Superb Holiday Let”
Reviewed February 29, 2016 for a stay in February 2016
1
person found this review helpful

An excellent Holiday cottage in a central, but quiet, location with parking on the doorstep.
The owners have tried to think of everything you would need away from home and have provided it. Immaculately clean and very comfortable accommodation with a modern and well-equipped kitchen. A selection of books, children's games, DVDs and lots of information about the surrounding area are all provided. An added and unexpected bonus was the provision of door to door directions for our travel to Whitby. Very much appreciated.
Although all contact was made by telephone, text or email, at the end of the conversation you felt as though you had made a friend. I found this cottage by recommendation and would not hesitate to recommend it to others or to visit again if coming to the Whitby area.

Thank you for your review which, to be fair has left me more than a little confused as I'm not sure what more I could have done and why I deserved the loss of the star.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay though.

Hi,

Thank you for your wonderful review. I'm chuffed to bits that you enjoyed your stay and liked
out little cottage, that means a lot.

Yes, I can well imagine that you needed the central heating, you guys had a 'bracing' weekend!

You and your family are welcome back any time.

“Delightful accommodation in a fantastic location”
Reviewed December 30, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I booked this house as a surprise for my husband, to coincide with the Tour de Yorkshire. To say it was a success would be an understatement! The cycle route went right past the front door, and was the icing on the cake of a superb holiday. Nichola could not have been more helpful, providing assistance before, during and after our stay!
As we were travelling with two young children, having so much on our doorstep made everything so much easier. I could not believe our luck in finding such lovely accommodation in such a central location. The fish and chip shop across the road must have noticed a spike in their profits during our stay!
Whitby is a delightful town, and there is so much to do, we really were spoilt for choice. I would recommend the steam train, which can often be booked on the day, for a real journey back in time (and to Hogwarts!).
I would recommend The Corner House to anyone - it was a lovely place to stay, Nichola was an excellent and very thoughtful hostess, and I hope that we will be able to return soon.

Hi,

Thank you so very much for your fabulous review and I'm really pleased that you enjoyed your stay.

Yes, we're over the moon that the Tour de Yorkshire route takes the cyclists directly past the cottage - we couldn't have asked for more!

The brilliant eateries on the doorstep are also great and definitely see a spike when we go too!

Thanks again for your lovely review; you and your family are welcome back any time.

Cheers,

“Excellent location - excellent communication - excellent facilities”
Reviewed October 6, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Been to Whitby a few times before, but not in a holiday let. We were 2 couples so was really looking for 2 double rooms but struggled with finding one that we really liked. I came across this one and, although it was 1 double, 1 twin, it seemed to fit our other requirements and was incredibly central. So I thought, let's give it a go. I'm so glad we did. It's not a huge cottage, but trust me, it's certainly big enough. Downstairs is open plan - kitchen, dining table and 2 sofa's with a flat screen TV. Board games in the cupboard and the kitchen was fully stocked (even a washing machine!). Whilst we didn't do any cooking while we were there, I could see that the place had been fully stocked with anything you could need. The owner, Nichola, is incredibly professional and clearly takes this place seriously and has a lot of love for it. I did worry that we hadn't heard from her 2 days before we arrived, but don't worry, you get everything you need sent over to you the day before arrival with the code for the key and wi-fi sent on the day of arrival.
Upstairs there are 2 rooms, both with plenty of space and both very bright and well decorated. The duvets are so thick and fluffy that you feel like you need to go weight training to lift them off you :) The bathroom was spotless. Nice big shower (no bath - but hey, it's not essential) and a really airy feel to it.
The location is perfect. It's over the bridge onto Church Street (main "old town" shopping street) and to the right. There are 3 pubs close by, but there more "local" type pubs rather than touristy. That being the case, you'd probably think it would be noisy around there.....but it's not at all. The shops obviously close come teatime and the bars are less busy as most of the tourists are either home or will be in the pubs on the other side of the bridge. The 3 pubs are actually really nice and relaxed if you want to give them a try. You really wouldn't believe how lovely and quiet it is overnight though. Obviously, you need to bear in mind that you are close to the harbour so you will hear the boats early morning if you have your window open, but it's actually really nice (in my opinion, anyway!). The only really noisy bit was the bin truck on Monday morning but hey, we needed to be up early to be out by 10 anyway. That, to be honest, was the only downside. I really could have done with a bit more time on the last morning - 4 adults and packing to be out by 10 was a bit of a rush but you can't have it all. As for parking....well, this is Whitby. There is a car park just by the harbour, 2 mins from the property. This does get busy though so you might not get in. We managed s space on the Friday, but there wasn't a hope on the Saturday and Sunday, so we went up to North Cliff - it's about a 10 minute walk away, but Whitby isn't that big a place so it's not too far. On the morning we were leaving, we simply collected the car and then loaded up right outside the property.
I'd most definitely recommend this lovely little cottage. It's convenient, very clean and exceptionally well run.

Hi,

Wow, thank you so much for your brilliant and comprehensive review.

I'm absolutely chuffed to bits that you decided to give our little cottage a try, especially since you haven't stayed at a Whitby holiday let before - I'm glad you had a good first experience!

I'm pleased that you loved the location, we did as soon as we saw it too, as it's really quiet but very close to everything. The sounds of the harbour and its wildlife are also nice in my opinion too!

I appreciate that the time that we ask our guests to vacate is a little bit early but this is something that our cleaners requested, so that they can have a good length of time in which to clean and make it ready for our next guests.

I'm also really happy that you would recommend our cottage to your friends and family.

I look forward to also welcoming you back any time.

Cheers,

Nichola

“Highly recommended 5 stars”
Reviewed September 15, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

A stunning well equiped cosy cottage in central whitby. A short walk from bus/railway station. Lovely home from home feel with comfy beds a great shower and well equiped kitchen....tv in each room too. Right next door is an excellent pie n mash shop and a great chip shop opposite. Its in a busy area but once we were in the cottage you couldn't hear any street noise at all. A superb place to stay and enjoy the delights of whitby. We will certainly be booking again.
