We stayed beginning of December. This is a lovely little cottage in a lovely village.
The owners have created a nice feel to the place and fixtures and fittings are of a good standard. They've done their best to create a warm welcome with the hospitality pack on arrival and the property was nice and warm.

There was an issue regarding cleanliness, I'm not going to put details on here as we dealt with it ourselves without notifying the owners, I'm sure it was an oversight as on the whole, the property and contents were very well presented.

This village is well situated for some very nice walks. It's convenient for the coast and Whitby. The cottage is in the heart of the village but there was no noise pollution that you can sometimes get with staying in the middle of a town or village.

I would have no hesitation in booking here again and would definitely recommend it.

As a guest, if I had a wish list for improving comfort, I would suggest a more powerful shower.
Highlight was the charming log burner.

Fabulous little cottage in idyllic situation.
Really lovely stay over the August bank holiday weekend.
Two great pubs within a stones throw of the cottage and the best fish and chip shop just across the road, what could be better?!
We will certainly be back one day soon.
Bonus is that the cottage is per friendly, and the walk down to the costal village of Runswick bay is a delight, to find the classy Royal hotel a just reward for your efforts.
Highly recommended.
