We stayed here for 3 nights over the bank holiday weekend. Great cottage, great location and fab walks right on the doorstep. It was cosy and very comfortable. Thank you!
This was our second visit to the Nest, we explored more of the local area this time, walking in Farndale( well worth a visit) ! We cooked at the cottage this time and everything was there we needed. The fire was a joy in the evenings as was the bed and sofa. The train to Whitby is a must and so are fish and chips on the beach. A great cottage and will defiantly return, for the cost it is a bargain, 5 stars for a 3 star price.
The Nest is a VERY SMALL compact cottage. It's in a beautiful rural location very close to Whitby, Sandsend and Scarborough. It is very well stocked with crockery and kitchen utensils. Very clean and lots of hot water etc. It could do with a bit of TLC though. There is a pub opposite which was closed on the Monday night so we bought curry's from the local Co-op which is very well stocked. We ate in Sandsend on Tuesday at a gorgeous pub called The Hart Inn (dog friendly) When we arrived back at the cottage we popped over for a drink to the Downe Arms but they were out of cask ales altogether which was disappointing. There is also a Tea room which we didn't visit unfortunately. The cottage is lovely and very old as described. We had a problem with the kitchen lights which seems to be an ongoing problem according to the visitors book. If you like your space then this isn't the place for you. All in all a nice stay but I would not stay again.
The Nest is just splendid. The host Annette was kind to call to check we got there okay and let us know where was good to go etc etc. The weather was very kind which helped. The sofa is just perfect for schooching up on with a book whilst the fire roars. Having the small supermarket a few steps away is just so handy. Considering its location, it is quiet. Having sheep on the doorstep is lovely too. The surroundings are just stunning and The Nest is perfectly located whether by foot, car or train. It is compact but everything you need as a couple, alone or with a hound. We shall return.
