Super cottage, finished to an extremely high standard. Fabulous bathroom with a rainfall shower and roll top bath, just lovely. Perfect location for visiting Whitby and the lovely shops in Sleights - particularly Radfords Butchers. Everything was perfect and Robert and Julie perfect hosts. Thank you - we will be back!!

“Family holiday”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Had a great week at Drake Cottage, situated 4 miles outside Whitby in the North Yorkshire National Park. Fantastic accommodation which owners Julie & Robert have furnished to a very high standard. The cottage is suitable for 2 couples or a family with 2 children & is also dog friendly. The kitchen is kitted out with everything you'll need although the chip shop at the bottom of the road will tempt you back time & again. Great location for exploring the NE coast with Robin Hood Bay, Staithes, Saltburn, Filey & Scarborough all on the doorstep.

“Perfect 5 star cottage!”
Reviewed 16 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Drakes Cottage for the first week of July 2016. When we arrived we were greeted by our hosts June and Robert who were extremely welcoming and showed us around the cottage. We were overwhelmed by the quality of the cottage, a lovely enclosed courtyard decked with beautiful rose beds greeted us on our way into the huge kitchen with high quality fittings and dining table. Through to the lounge with extremely comfortable furniture (which was very welcoming after days of walking). Huge TV and freesat + DVD etc..... Upstairs 2 double bedrooms, (1 bedroom with luxury bath and bedroom 2 with "massive" ensuite bathroom with luxury bath and shower etc.....). The cottage was also extremely clean, no dust anywhere! Plenty of parking! And easy access to the surrounding areas of Whitby and Scarborough! ...... It was perfect for us and our little dog! ...... Will definitely be back!!!

Drakes cottage is situated in a tranquil setting. The cottage is tastefully decorated and the furnishings are superb. It's about a ten minute drive from Whitby and central to all the beauty spots around that area. Robert and Julie are friendly people who have done a wonderful renovation job on the cottages and land that they are set in. They live in a house on the land and are always around if there should ever be a problem. This cottage is so well equipt,washer,dish washer, wood burner,hair dryer I think they have thought of everything to make your holiday the best. There is great butchers nearby also a bakers and a Spa shop,if you should need them . There are some very good pubs for meals and most are dog friendly. I can't recommend this cottage enough.

“Amazing stay”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Drake cottage is truly a home away from home, currently sat in the living room of the beautiful cottage and appreciating the beautiful decor, high spec kitchen and amazing bedrooms and bathroom! Close to Whitby 10 min drive and some amazing costal walks with our black Labrador Benson. The owners Robert and Julie have created some beautiful cottages in a lovely location, we would recommend this cottage to friends and family and will hopefully be back for another stay soon.

Thanks
Romy and Chris
