person found this review helpful

Stayed at the end of September booked by my sister in law off eBay.lovely cottage on the quieter side of the harbour.homely and cosy well appointed.next door to a great fourties style pie shop,great music,great food.cottage well appointed and clean? Just a few tweaks like bathroom shower doors need cleaning, door runners(wouldn't spoil your holiday)and the rug in the lounge needed shampooing.would definitely stay again and would recommend to anyone.owner should be proud of her little home from home. very nice bedding and soft furnishings. just 1 thing that was annoying,people looking at leaflets in the windows perhaps you could fix to the unused door it wouldn't bother guests then.Go you won't be disappointed.

Hi,

Thank you for your great review.

I'm disappointed that the shower doors weren't as clean as they usually would be, I'll have a chat with my cleaners. The rugs are due a deep clean in the next week or so, I'm looking around for some new ones too, just haven't found any like like yet though!

I'm also in an enviable location to be able to advertise my business to so many passers by and I can assure everyone that no-one can see through the net curtains, however, I am in the process of having some metal ones made, which Will be attached to the exterior, as these were only ever meant as a temporary measure for when the brochures had all been taken.

It's great to hear that you'd stay with us again and that you'd recommend us to your friends, you're welcome back any time.

Cheers,

Nichola x

Hi,

Thank you for your great review!

Yes, it can be great playing the 'find the parking space' game in Whitby but you'll always be able to find one.

I'm chuffed to bits that you're planning on coming back to stay with us and that you're going to recommend us to your friends - that is brilliant to hear, thank you very much!

You guys are welcome back any time.

Cheers,

“Grand location and comfy place to stay”
Reviewed September 7, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We spent four delightful nights in Corner House. We came by train, and the house was perfect for us as a base from which to explore the Yorkshire coast and to enjoy the steam train to Pickering. It is very convenient to the harbor and its shops and restaurants, the train station, and a terrific grocery store. The Cook museum is around the corner. Kitchen is well equipped. We'd would be delighted to return.

“A precious gem right in the heart of Whitby”
Reviewed August 7, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Nichola was the perfect host right from the moment of booking and throughout the holiday. She provided directions to the property and a list of recommended eating places. The location of the property was perfect - close to local amenities but surprisingly quiet. It was a lovely old cottage which was almost 400 years old and furnished to a very high standard. Downstairs was a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge area. Upstairs was a bathroom with a double width shower, toilet and sink and two large bedrooms. I can honestly say that the king size bed was really comfortable. There was also plenty of storage for clothes and each room had its own TV/DVD player. Nichola contacted us on the day of our stay giving instructions for gaining entry to the property and asked us to let her know we had arrived safely. I wold not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone and will certainly be staying here again if I visit Whitby in the future.

Wow, what a fantastic review!

I'm chuffed to bits that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you liked what we've done to the place!

Yes, we really are very blessed to have such great places to eat all around us, it's great!

I'm glad you liked the location too, this is what first attracted us to this little cottage - that view, I could and do, sit and gaze out at it for hours - especially since you get to see the smoke from the steam trains across the harbour as they come and go!

You guys are more than welcome back at any time!
