I suppose nice sums it up really. It was nice. The location was good, central ish, not too far to walk to anywhere. I stayed with my parents, they booked it as it was great they could take the dog. The house was tidy, well kept, reasonable facilities. Downsides were, it wasn't advertised (where they booked it) that there were steps to it. My dad is disabled, so struggled some days if we had been walking a lot. There is a lack of mod cons... Most importantly Internet! Not a big deal for some on holiday, but for me with my folks, I would have liked it!!! We also couldn't find a guest handbook? Usually in private rentals you find some kind of welcome book. Also, the upstairs bedrooms are difficult to get to, the stairs are very narrow and there is limited headroom. I don't mean the review to sound negative, I didn't pay for the rental I'm sure for the price there was adequate. Could just do with some attention.

Whitby was lovely and very interesting. The cottage was as good as a cottage could be. We had a wonderful time.

Mrs Halliwell

Great accommodation in a superb location. Would definitely come again. Thank you!
Mr Blakesley

In a great location and very spacious for the price. It was lovely and warm with some really quirky details. The 3rd floor double room had a really gothic feel to it. The owner was great on the phone and really helpful. We will be back to stay again!
