“Perfect location for town, sea and old town”

people found this review helpful

You arrive at the property via Church Street the Main Street in Old Town beautiful characterful, quaint individual shops. Then go down a narrow lane toward the sea where the property is to be found. The cottage is beautifully furnished and very clean and welcoming. The ever changing views are absolutely gorgeous day and night and the wooden shutters are a lovely touch. When you venture out the whole of Whitby is easily walkable from the 199 steps to the Abbey to the harbour, town and station. If I had to find any faults it would be that I personally found the beds too firm . But would love to return again for another magical break.

Thank you for your review. The cottage location means that you get the benefit of the wonderful sea views but also easy access to all the old town shops, restaurants and the abbey. I look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and the closeness of the old town centre with all its shops and restaurants. Eating out is never an issue but I like to make sure you have the comforts of home if you do decide to cook. The cottage is over 300 years old and, as such, steps and low ceilings have to be watched out for - I speak from experience. I hope to welcome you back in the future.

“Lovely spot, amazing views...”
Reviewed 9 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

I spent a weekend in this cottage with my partner last December and it couldn't have been better!
I was a bit worried that it might have been a bit noisy due to it being just off the Rowing Club, but we could not hear a thing! The views are to die for, both when the tide is in and when it's out. The cottage was very clean and we found it to be more than spacious. There are 2 double rooms and a single room. Both double rooms looked so nice that it was hard to choose which one to sleep in! The toilet downstairs is a bit small, but the bathroom upstairs is very nice! We thoroughly enjoyed admiring the views while having breakfast in the bright kitchen and it was fantastic being in the middle of Whitby old town and having a little beach just steps from the cottage. We couldn't have enjoyed it more!

Definitely recommended for a romantic weekend away!

“Lovely spot!”
Reviewed 21 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Beautiful cottage, in an incredible location - right in the middle of Whitby but in an alley so off the main road (though the alley is shared with the rowing club bar). From the front window you can watch the tide coming in, and dogs playing on the beach when it's out. Sky TV and broadband were a nice luxury for when we didn't feel like moving; the furnishing shows the signs of wear you'd expect at the end of the season, but is generally of high quality.
My only piece of advice to potential stayers- there are beds for five, but the amount of space available is rather on the bijou side - five adults here for a week would knocking against each other a lot.

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed the location and the fantastic sea views. The cottage is small - it is over 300 years old - but I'll get on the case to provide more seating cushions to make things less crowded.
