This cottage is a stone built converted stable which has been renovated to provide three bedrooms for seven people in the village of Aislaby near to Whitby in North Yorkshire.

Tower Cottage is an impressive former stable which has been lovingly refurbished to provide a stunning holiday cottage set within seven acres of grounds on the outskirts of Whitby. Three magnificent bedrooms offer enough sleeping accommodation for seven people including a magnificent solid oak four poster double in the Tower Room, as well as two other doubles and a single. The ground floor bedroom has an ensuite and there is also a large family bathroom.

The cottage also boasts a fitted kitchen with dining area and a sitting room with lovely views and doors which lead out onto the patio. Outside the cottage is a private courtyard, a shared lawned garden and 4 acre field as well as ample off road parking.

Stunning views, incredibly dated & shabby throughout, dangerous for children and the claim about Sky TV is a lie
The photos must have been taken years ago as it looks nothing like that now. When we arrived there was an uncovered chainsaw on the wall where the plants are in the main photo. This remained there all week along with half full oil & petrol cans, windows, radiators, various tools and broken lights. The children play area was strewn with broken building materials and a skip. The gazebo / barbecue area was filthy and mouldy. The owners dogs were allowed to roam free through the grounds unsupervised. They were very friendly dogs but were defecating everywhere and no one was picking it up. The advert claimed the cottage has 'Sky TV'. It doesn't, it has freest which is very different. The rooms were all dirty and covered with cobwebs. The en suite bathroom wasn't a bathroom but a shower room. Both the en suite shower room and main bathroom were mouldy and dirty. The metal towel shelves were full of rust which covered the provided towels, which in themselves were incredibly tatty. Then entrance to the site was strewn with rubble and metal girders where a building was being demolished.

A lovely area, cottage and grounds, great for dog lovers. The owners/managers were friendly and helpful.

Fabulous family break
My sister booked this cottage for a family break, me, mum sister, brother in law, neice and my Staffie. We had not had this kind of holiday for 30 years and I can honestly say that thanks to the hosts of, and Tower Cottage itself, we had the most relaxing family break we could have ever had. It was tranquil, chilled out, very well equipped, clean and neat and tidy. I have never been on a letting basis holiday before and was unsure about it, however on arrival we were greeted by friendliness from the owners and exuberance from Buddy their dog. We were shown the facilities and they were plentiful. The cottage had a real home from home feeling about it. To be able to lay in the comfortable four poster bed listening to the countryside sounds of the night as I drifted off to sleep made for some of the best nights sleeps I have had. To be able to open the door in the morning and watch my dog just race down the huge field with Buddy who called for her bringing his toys every morning was relaxing for me, no being dragged on a lead first thing and infact just knowing everything you needed was there in full working order in the cottage was wonderful. A perfect idyllic location with fantastic views of the countryside, blue bank, Whitby abbey and steam trains across the moors made for a brilliant family holiday and I want to return again soon for lots more "me" time. I can't recommend this place enough for the perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life!
