“Excellent Accommodation in a Quiet Location”
Reviewed 1 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

What a lovely little place. Quiet and peaceful location but Whitby centre is easily accessible for the typical North Yorkshire Seaside Town experience. The cottage is fantastically well equipped and is just like a home from home. Plenty of space even though there was 7 of us with 2 dogs as well! Have already recommended to family and friends and will definitely be visiting again. Great contact off the owners Martin and Julie and a wealth of information to get you started. fab!

“Excellent find, lovely break”
Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Thanks to Martin and Julie for a lovely break in a lovely cottage.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the cottage is incredibly well equipped with every glass and utensil you could ever need. The living accommodation spread over 3 floors works well.

The location was fantastic for us, Originally I had a little bit of concern on the location being outside of Whitby, this was quickly forgotten when we did the 20 minute walk into Whitby which was lovely. We ended up doing it most of the time (although in the Dark may be a pushing it)...

Typical haunts in Whitby with the Moon and sixpence, Greens and Magpie café all doing Whitby proud.

We look forward to our next stay !

“Super”
Reviewed 10 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our four-night stay at Kauri Cottage - a real home-from-home; it is spacious, well-equipped and clean - particularly nice is the balcony leading off the lounge. The cottage is in a quiet location by the viaduct, and a five-minute drive from the centre of Whitby. There were plenty of leaflets and recommendations for places to visit and eateries - we enjoyed cocktails and a really lovely meal at the Moon and Sixpence (so good we dined there again). If you're into antiques, I can't recommend Whitby Antiques strongly enough - the owner has a keen eye for interesting and reasonably-priced finds.

Thank you very much.

“Excellent accommodation for up to 8”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Very cosy accommodation in the quieter part of Whitby. The cottage can accommodate up to 8 people, however with only up to 6 people it makes a longer stay more relaxing. The extras like dishwasher, washer and broadband internet made the stay even more pleasant. Communication with the property manager and access to the property were easy and responses to inquiries quick. All in all we had a lovely stay, can definitely recommend it to a bigger family or anyone requiring lots of space and a quite and relaxing stay and will come back for sure. Thanks for the experience.

“Wonderful cottage in beautiful location.”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed 3 nights in the cottage with my parents and our 3 year old, and Poppy the dog. It was wonderfully equipped - a higher standard than you may expect of a holiday cottage (including washing machine and dishwasher!) but a load of DVDs and a cupboard full of games were also available. It is beautifully located, next to the river under the viaduct with the NYMR steam train passing by in clear view.

We were welcomed every morning by the ducks on the green, and my daughter loved being able to feed them and go 'fishing', even if she only caught mud in a net.

I would highly recommend the cottage and we will definately be back.

Thank you for your kind review - in our experience if the children are happy then the adults are happy so lovely to hear your little one had fun !!

We will be undergoing our usual 'winter refurbishment' over the next few months, and we look forward to welcoming you all back to the cottage in the near future.
