Lovely, clean, comfortable beds and well equipped cottage. Good park and ride into Whitby which took the pressure off looking for a parking place. We were lucky with the weather for the time of year.

Management response:

Many thanks for your excellent review. Always good to hear when guests enjoy the location of our cottage. The area is very peaceful and perfect for a relaxing stay anytime of year. Best wishes Paul and Dianne
