when we first arrived i was slightly worried about the location, as it is smack bang in the middle of the busiest part of whitby and my son had fetched his new motorcycle , but within minutes my mind was at ease that everything would be just fine it wasn't even touched for the whole stay , there is space to load and unload but you park the car elsewhere for a small fee , which isn't too far to walk back to the cottage . The cottage is tucked away up a set of steps which wasn't a problem to us , you cannot expect to come to whitby and not expect find hills or steps, the cottage itself is extremely well equipped and there was nothing that we needed that we didn't have , my wife even got out the table and chairs and set it for dinner as she does at home and managed took us a 3 course Sunday lunch without any issues despite the kitchen being unfamiliar to her she said it was extremely easy to master. We could take the dog with us too which was a massive bonus and he loved it too , the stairs inside are steep and i would not recommend for very young children or the elderly or overly large people , but it does say all of this on the website (except the large people bit , dont think they are allowed to put that ) . There is some noise in the mornings as the steps are access to all other cottages and the delivery to the pub , but when i say early i mean about 8am same with the pub coming out at 11pm but its short lasting and no one can control what comes out of peoples mouths on the way back from the pub , just remember the cottage really in right in the heart of whitby , which as the week goes on you will learn to really appreciate. My daughter loved the attic room with the bunk beds she spent most of the time in there pretending it was pirate caves and as the cottage has a safety gate i wasnt worried about her falling down the stairs (shes 5 ) .we will defiantly be returning and are hoping to get a christmas date also as the cottage really does feel like home after a couple of days, i can honestly say i didn't want to come back home .
