“Modern but with a cozy charm”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Cottage was spotlessly clean, well furnished and had everything you could possibly need. It's centrally located and a good size. We really enjoyed our stay and would only say it could do with wifi.

It is great to hear that you had a lovely holiday at The Old Blacksmith's Workshop and that you had everything you needed to hand there. We certainly hope that you return to enjoy it all over again soon!

“Excellent modern 2 bed cottage in perfect location”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My family and i are curently enjoying our week in Whitby staying in this lovely cottage having booked direct with the owner. There are 3 adults and a baby stayingnand we have taken the offer of the travel cot and highchair. Cottage is all on 1 level and is finished to a high modern standard with original features. We have stayed in several holiday cottages in the paddock over the years as its the best location to both whitby harbour & shops as well as to west cliff etc. We would not stay in another location now. ONLY crisitism is having NO WIFI...this really should come as standard in today's technology era."Steep"hill you use to access apartment from parking space isnt as bad as people make out and my mum who has arthritus managed it without a problem.

“Family catchup”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The cottage is close to the Quay and shops. The downside is the very steep road to reach it, which you have to do by foot as there is no parking outside the cottage. The alternative route to reach the cottage is a series of steep steps. This is not mentioned on the website unfortunately.
The cottage is modern in design but lacks enough crockery for 4 people. Also oven trays are in poor condition and no casseroles dishes. Such a pity as it's something that could easily be put right at little cost. As nobody else has mentioned this problem I can only presume that past guests have eaten out and not prepared their own meals.
Be aware that Internet and mobile phone signals are poor in this area. We had our grandson with us for a study break from University and he had to cut his break short as he was unable to study at the cottage. I understand this is a problem in all areas of Whitby and not particularly with this cottage.

I feel this cottage is only suitable for a maximum of 3 people as the second bed is just 4 foot wide, and the room very small.

“Modernised, well-equipped cottage in heart of Whitby”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Characterful, spacious cottage with all amenities and modernised to a good standard. Has advantage of nearby parking space, although it is quite hazardous taking suitcases etc. from car to cottage due to extreme slope outside. Close to shops, restaurants, railway station and harbour. Main bedroom needs attention due to unpleasant damp, musty smell. Everything else, perfect!
