Nice Stay in Whalebone cottage
Very comfortable stay cottage was very clean well presented and ample room for the eight of us. Location is very central to North Yorkshire tourist attractions. Would stay there again.

We had a wonderful week in this cottage.It felt like home the minute we arrived, and we were all sad to leave.The location is handy for the entire area, with Whitby on the doorstep, Robin Hoods Bay, Sandsend, Runswick Bay and Staithes just a short trip away, and a variety of inland destinations under an hour away (Nunnington Hall a must). Sainsbury's near by made self catering easy. The place was quiet but not remote or isolated.The cottage was great value for money, and we would certainly return.

A very well located and lovely clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage. It was perfect for a family break.
Mrs Alexander

Whalebone Cottage is peaceful and very spacious. Gorgeous in every way and suitable for everyone that joined us there!
Mrs Mathieson

We had a great time in Whitby. The holiday cottage is really spacious for up to 8 people and having 2 showers was a bonus as there were 7 of us. The children loved the garden area and the views from the cottage were stunning. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone going to Whitby on holiday.
