This terraced cottage is located in the seaside town of Whitby and can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

Inglenook Cottage is a terraced cottage set down a small lane in the centre of the North Yorkshire seaside town of Whitby. The cottage sleeps four people and has one double bedroom, one twin and a family bathroom. Also in the cottage is a galley kitchen and a sitting room with an open fire. Just a short stroll to the harbour and with all the town's amenities close at hand, Inglenook Cottage is a lovely family holiday home.


Rustic Charm or Complacent Attitude
Whitby is a great place with very clean beaches and some real quirky eateries. Inglenook is ideally located to enjoy all this. Sadly however I have to post my first ever negative review (on any site) because the owners should invest some money and address the following points, also until then I hope it helps the next people to align their expectations - 1) Review your cleaners, it was not the cleanest we've been in, items of clothing from previous tenants, mouldy bread in the bread bin (first time we stop in a cottage with no greeting of wine or food) 2) The double bed has a disposable non-breathable Tyvek type mattress protector, which induces a sweaty slumber. 3) Second bedroom, light connection box I doubt would pass an electrical safety test 4) Broadband is non-router based (cellular BT network) so you cant use your smart dongles to pick up Netflix. 5) Sofa is tired, I'm afraid to say Sorry if this appears to be a rant but I have photos to back all of this up and I left out some other minor things. I sincerely wish the owners well and hope they could make some investment to bring the cottage back up to a suitable standard. Maybe we have been very lucky with previous holiday lettings and I am being unfair, in that case I apologize.

Inglenook Cottage was very old, homely and interesting. There was nothing we needed that wasn't supplied. It is based right in the centre of the town and a few minutes from the harbour. As it is down one of the 'secret' alleys it was very quiet. Although there was no outside space this wasn't a problem as there is a little park a few moments up the hill for exercising our dog. Whitby is the most dog welcoming place we've ever been to. We're looking forward to returning.

Inglenook is a lovely cottage and very characterful. It was situated in a good, quiet location. We received very helpful tips from the owner on local amenities.

Relaxing, quaint cottage in the heart of town.
A lovely, clean and homely cottage with bags of character, from the beams to the inglenook fireplace. Situated in the middle of town on the west bank close to shops and pubs but tucked away down a tiny ginnel making it a quiet little retreat. On 3 floors, lounge with eating area and small kitchen on ground floor, double bedroom and bathroom with bath on 1st with further large bedroom with twin beds up the winding stairs in the attic. We stayed over a stormy winter weekend and it was warm and cosy in the cottage. Very much recommended for a visit.

Inglenook Cottage had a very authentic feel, and was exceptionally cosy. The location of the cottage, situated in Whitby town centre, was brilliant for getting to shops and restaurants. All our needs were catered for and the facilities were all in good working order. Loved the country cottage style sink and the kitchen worktops. It was great to curl up on the sofa with some friends and just relax.
