The house was warm, well equipped, comfortable and gave very good value for money. There was a wealth of information about the area; where to eat etc. We will certainly recommend this property to friends and family and would consider returning at a later date.

The cottage was lovely, warm and cosy, it is well equipped with everything you need. I felt very comfortable. Good info was provided and the location was handy for the town.

This mid terraced house is a short walk from the centre of Whitby, down bank! So be prepared for the up bank coming home! There is road side parking as the streets including this one are surrounded by terraced properties but we didn't experience any issue, parking outside to drop of our stuff and then finding a space a few streets away.. There is a local shop, butchers, fish and chip shop within a five minute walk.. The house itself has been lovingly restored and has some original features like sash windows. It is modern inside and spotless, a gate provided to stop yr dog going upstairs and everything you could need is in it.. It is warm and homely and has an enclosed back yard area. It was quiet despite being in a populated area and had the benefit of a log burner which I would imagine to be very cosy in winter time. The owners had provided lots of information and we used it to enjoy walks in the area. This is a lovely part of Yorkshire and for a convenient location close to amenities it is great!!!

A wonderful property - a real home from home.
