Fantastic Dog Friendly Cottage
We stayed for a week and the weather was wonderful. The cottage seems a little out of the way but it is fantastic and only 5 minute from the outskirts of Whitby and a few minutes from an excellent Park & Ride. The owners couldn't do enough for you and they were friendly without being overpowering! We have two dogs and they were made as welcome as we were. The owners offered to look after them and we left them for one afternoon where we had a chance to do a few things on our own. We mostly took the dogs out as the whole area is dog friendly. We visited Sandsend which is a really wonderful place and spent hours on the beach. Out for 6 hours a day we found the cottage cosy and homely at night and it was one of the nicest places we had ever stayed.

Very welcoming
Very relaxing holiday with very welcoming owners that made our holiday very special. Lovely comfortable and we'll equipt cottage. Fantastic views over looking rolling countryside and sea views Excellent location for exploring Whitby. We would definitely recommend this place and will return again in the future.

This cottage was deceptively large, comfortable and quiet; homely with beautiful views. Newly installed Wi-Fi was a bonus. Ample parking next to the cottage, a point often vaguely described in other property listings. A very dog friendly property, where the welcoming owners and their three dogs kindly let us use the paddock to exercise the dog. Would not hesitate using this again.

Excellent location and stunning views from lounge & bedroom. The owners were so helpful and very friendly, on arrival showed us around cottage and had left us 6 fresh free range eggs from their own hens. Cottage was very cosy, heating had been set for morning & evening. It was a lot bigger than I expected for a one bedroom cottage. Also there was wifi which we weren't expecting. So many lovely places to see right from your doorstep, and not far from excellent pubs, Black Bull & The Horseshoe at Egton Bridge. Our 2 Golden Retrievers were made very welcome and one of the most pet friendly cottage we have stayed at. Recommend this cottage.
