Amber cottage is a wonderful base for discovering the popular seaside town of Whitby.


Sadly not impressed
The owner was very obliging when we complained. I think the fault lies with his management company. The place is very tired looking, ie dirty cushions, dead hanging baskets, no kerb appeal. Shame as it is a great location close to all on offer. We had to wash cups before use and the dish towel was filthy and there was only one. Windows filthy too. Shower tray doesn't drain properly and the plumbing leaves a lot to be desired. It didn't spoil our holiday gladly. Whitby it a beautiful place to be. Its a shame as it could be a lovely wee cottage.

Great tucked away little cottage
Takes a little finding as it's tucked into an alley between two shops. Once installed though it's a perfect little hideaway. Short walk to all the beach, pub food and great fish n chip restaurants. We'll use this again some day!

Amber Cottage is a quirky wee abode on three levels with views from the attic bedroom across the harbour to Whitby Abbey and St Mary's Church. With the living flame open fire, the house is cosy and a combination boiler provides all the hot water you need.

Just a beautiful setting and close to everything we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our break, the children loved it and we hope to book this cottage again, many thanks.
Mr Fitton

The holiday was fantastic and the cottage was perfect.
