Perfect location.
We like to stay near to shops,pubs etc and this certainly delivered- only 100 yards from a narrow and quiet road to the harbour. Newsagent three mins walk pleased my husband. Five minutes to the harbour,bus station etc etc. The pictures of the kitchen on the website don't do it justice. It was very well equipped and cosier than it looks. The lounge is lovely,very comfortable with a great fire. The whole house is full of quirky pictures and features,we noticed something new every day. Although we're not in our prime (67/73) we found the stairs manageable ,though we thought hard about what to take up to the fifth floor bedroom at night ! Good mind training though. But the climb was worth it for the view,it was a shame that it was too cold to sit in the terrace even though it was very mild for December. We absolutely loved our week there. PS very good wifi too.

Lovely, quirky pet friendly house
Visited with my partner & 2 other couples, for a long weekend We loved the quirky nature of the house, the open fire, and the central location. The house was clean & beautifully presented. Pet friendly, and my dog Penny loved running up & down the stairs exploring all the bedrooms. I would highly recommend this house.

Great house, great location, great holiday
We stayed in this house recently together with 4 friends and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The house is in a wonderful location, close to shops and only a 5 minute walk from the beach. It also has 2 free car parking spaces, which was great as in the past we have had to pay to park in the long stay car park.The cottage is really clean and very homely. The lounge is lovely and cosy with a real fire (wood provided) and there are plenty of bathrooms and loos, which is a real bonus. Thoroughly recommend a stay here.......... Also, I stupidly left some clothes behind, which the owner kindly posted back to me. Lovely service!

Perfect location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cottage which is in an ideal location for the centre of Whitby. The property was clean and the bedding was spotless. Slight issue with the key code which was swiftly dealt with by the owner. The cottage felt very homely and cosey and everything was in good working order. We felt very much at home and will be booking again.

A lovely cottage in a great location just minutes from the town centre. It had all mod cons, the showers were good and the kitchen was well stocked. It was clean & tidy and had comfortable beds & sofas. It was great to have a lock up garage & a parking permit as we arrived in 2 cars.
