“Third stay - says it all really!”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just returned from our third stay in this lovely spacious house. It is a perfect house for us to spend time with extended family. We can all be together in the kitchen diner/lounge, knowing that there is an additional lounge to retreat to if anyone wants peace and quiet. The house is exceptionally tastefully furnished, very well equipped and very clean. As soon as we step in the door, we feel at home, and things like the welcome pack are such a nice touch. How lovely to be able to make cup of tea as soon as you arrive! In some ways, it's a bit like staying in a friend's very nice house, because there is every kitchen implement you might need, and even shampoo in the shower and laundry tabs in the utility room. Parking hasn't been a problem for us, although we don't tend to use the car much once we're there, because there is plenty to do in Whitby, and it's all walkable from the house. The owner of this property really wants you to have a great stay. We wouldn't hesitate to book this property again.

“A beautiful house”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Beech House is a beautiful and spacious house. Perfect for 4 adults & 4 children. The house was immaculately clean and contained everything we could wish for plus lots of extras. Lovely views from the upper lounge and 2 front facing bedrooms. Thank you Bridget We all had a lovely holiday.

“Good spacious self catering accommodation in Whitby”
Reviewed 11 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A very good self catering property in Whitby. Lots of space, and very clean. The property is very well equipped, and convenient for the centre of Whitby. However, there are some disadvantages. Parking arrangements are not very good. On street free parking is available, but finding parking spaces near the property can be very diificult (in July) and you may end up with parking your car a distance away in narrow streets, and your car gets platered with seagull droppings. The noise of the seagulls, all night long at times, can make sleeping challenging. There are lots of stairs, and if you have mobility issues, or cannot manage stairs easily, this is not the property for you. The double bedroom in the loft conversion is particularly difficult to access, up narrow stairs with small treads, and if there were to be a fire, you would probably not stand a chance! Wi-fi is provided free of charge, but is slow and unreliable.

Thank you for the review and let us apologise for the issues you have commented on. The young seagulls are about to leave the roof tops of Whitby any day now which will reduce the gull noise and any associated inconvenience considerably. Sorry you weren’t always able to park directly outside the property but as time goes by we are sure the new park and ride facility on the outskirts of Whitby will be utilised more and therefore improve overall parking availability. The Wi-Fi is 3G which normally has a higher upload/download speed than a hardwired system, so as a result we have made sure the router is left in the optimum position to maximise its capacity. Thank you for your comments as it allows us an opportunity to give our future guests an even better holiday experience.

Another wonderful stay at Beech House. lovely clean house, well equipped and plenty of room. A short walk to town and the sea front. Good Fish and Chip shop and great little butchers on the road at the rear of the property.

Had a great time (again) - thanks Bridget

“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Beech house is a lovely spacious, welcoming house in which all of our group immediately felt at home.
Spotlessly clean and equipped with everything we could need.
Welcome basket was a really nice touch.
Will definitely return.
