We were warmly met by Tracy &Robert and had a great weeks holiday spent in North Yorkshire the location was ideal for day trips to the coast and inland to the moors and national park. The cottage was well equipped with the
Thoughtful added extras which included a hamper and fresh flowers. Many a relaxing evening spent in the summerhouse from where you could sit and enjoy watching the wildlife on the river Esk Had a fantastic day out on the steam train to Pickering. Would highly recommend Riverbank cottage.

“Completely relaxing break”

I was treated to a short stay as a late valentines present from my boyfriend. I have always loved Whitby and was delighted when I found out we were staying at this cottage.
What can I say?... the welcome pack that greeted us on arrival was lovely- a bottle of champagne set the week off to a perfect start. Even though it was a little chilly, I was determined to enjoy a glass outside on the decking by the river. (I wrapped up in a cover - that luckily I'd packed, and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the river flowing right past the cottage. )
The whole house was extremely clean, warm, cosy and inviting. You can even still smell the newness of the flooring.
I'm already looking forward to booking another trip- especially during the warmer months to take full advantage of the summer house/ decking whilst my boyfriend fishes in the river!
