“Extremely comfortable, very well equipped house.”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Stayed here with friends and family. A great time was had by all. Lovely packets of local biscuits waiting for us on our arrival. The kitchen table is huge and is a great place for a big group to eat, make plans and play the occasional board game! The bedrooms are spacious and vey well decorated. The lounges are big enough for everyone to be accommodated in one room if you want. The location is ideal being close to shops, restaurants and the station. I would highly recommend staying here if you are a large group. Being super picky the two saniflow loos are a little noisy but you could use one of the other two loos! Oh room to park 3 cars, that is a big bonus in Whitby.

“Wonderful holiday home”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

9 of us (all adults) stayed in Roseberry House for a long weekend. We couldn't have been happier with our choice.

The house is very spacious & warm with 2 lounges and a large well equipped kitchen. The owner even left us tea, milk & biscuits for our arrival. The bedrooms are all beautifully decorated and comfortable and there are plenty of toilets & bathrooms to avoid queuing! Only one thing to watch out for is that towels are not provided.

The house is situated within easy walking distance of the town, pubs, restaurants & attractions so we didn't move the cars until we left to go home (which we were glad about as the narrow Whitby streets are a bit of a challenge to navigate).

Would definitely recommend the house and would love to return.

“Lovely Large House”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed in Roseberry House for the weekend in April. We were a group of 9, with no youngsters. We found the house to be perfect for us. Lots of space, in a quirky layout meant we could rove around with out getting in each others' way. The bedrooms were spacious and quiet. Even if the others were still up, not a sound disturbed anyone who had retired for the night! 2 great sitting rooms - each with a big flat screen tv would be ideal for a group with teenagers (there's wifi for them too) but we all fitted in both perfectly, so just had to choose which one we felt like sitting in.

Everything was clean and well cared for. Don't be intimidated by the warnings on the macerator bathrooms - just use a bit of common sense and it's all fine.

If you had young children with you, prams and strollers etc. could be parked in the utility room out of the way - also, a good place for wet wellies or buckets and spades if needs be! And there's a little sunny courtyard at the back for buckets of shells or other beach finds.

We didn't do much in the way of "self catering" - but if you were inclined to use the range stove, we're sure you would find every thing you would need. It's in a great location for "down town" Whitby, so eating out is very easy, just a stroll to the harbourside places and a great tea/coffee shop at the bottom of the street.

Parking is not really an issue as there are 3 dedicated parking places just over the road, but the house is in such a fab location, we did not use our cars during our stay.

All in all this is a great house for large groups of any combination. You can split up into smaller groups if you want to, or stay together in the lounges. There are various configurations of doubles and twins to accommodate a wide range of combinations of families, friends, couples and children. It's handy for everything and won't break the bank. A top house and we would not hesitate to return.

“Fabulous family holiday”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed for Easter week at Roseberry House with the family (ages 12-83). The house was wonderful, loads of room, comfy beds, two sitting rooms and a well equipped kitchen. It is situated in a great spot in the town with everything a short walk away. Once there we didn't need the cars at all! Bothams Bakery and Tea Shop is a minute away, 5 mins to the Whale Arch, tea rooms and shops on the doorstep and a short stroll to the Abbey. There is plenty to do for everyone.
The house is one of the best we have stayed in over years of Holiday Houses! We had everything we needed, it was warm and comfortable and prettily decorated. We appreciated the welcome gifts and the house was immaculately clean. We are definitely going back!,

“Fabulous, warm, character house.”
Reviewed 21 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Stayed here with 7 friends - all female - and we had a wonderful time. You will want for nothing if you stay here. The house has everything you need and it is so near the shops, pubs, restaurants and the beach, with wonderful walks in Whitby and the surrounding areas. Definitely recommend to anyone.

Superb, well appointed, warm, spacious house. We stayed over Christmas, with family (6adults and 3 children) and found Roseberry House a home from home for us all. Great facilities and a superb location. Loved exploring Whitby. Would def recommend.

“Great space for large family”

Ideal holiday home for a large group, plenty of space for children to play, without getting under adults feet. Kitchen table is awesome, spend a large of nights round it playing games, we had a great time, and would recommend to anyone who asked. Every one said Comfy beds in all rooms, no problems getting showers with 3. Parking a cross the road a bonus. Also in a quiet area.
We had had various houses in whitby in the last ten years, the family said this was the best.
