“Excellent property, location and town”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have recently returned from a lovely family holiday in Whitby. I haven't been since I was a child and my sister and I wanted to take our children to experience the delights we remembered, and weren't disappointed. It was made even more special by the excellent welcome and accommodation plenty of room for everyone and a real home from home a lot of thought has gone into the facilities provided and the decor. The location is wonderful a 2 minute walk to the west cliff tops where for those with mobility issues or small children can use the lift to the beach. 5 minutes to the main prom beach, shops and eateries. The Fisherman's Wife provides lovely food and views overlooking the beach and sea beyond, The Angel Hotel opposite the harbor is a Weatherspoon's (which my experience in our home town has not been good) however the food and value for money were excellent here, as was the Magpie Street Food Kiosk opposite the Funland Arcade the Whitebait's are a must. Their is also 2 open top yellow buses that tour round the town and up to the Abbey it is £5 for a ticket which you can uses as often as you like for 24 hours and services run every 30 minutes so great value and way to see the sights. The Pirate Boat trip is lovely and the males in the group went out on a morning fishing trip which you can book for £20 each at harbor opposite Angel Hotel and that includes equipment and bait. We will be visiting again and highly recommend property, location and Whitby to all and Sykescottages and owners offered a comprehensive and friendly service.

“Excellent house and location”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Booked this house for a family holiday to celebrate my daughters 21st birthday, both the house and the location were excellent. The house is so spacious that 18 people could stay and eat very comfortably. The house has a super large dining table which all 18 guests could sit round and the kitchen was very well equipped to cater for a large meal (even has two dishwashers). There is a very helpful and pleasant housekeeper, Annie, who made contact to check everything was in order and house was very clean and well furnished. The location was very good too, easy walk into the centre and a couple of minutes walk from the beach. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting good quality accommodation for a large group.

“Superb”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed the weekend with 16 other people on my friend,Kathy's hen do.We were all very impressed with the house,and never once felt crowded,due to ample space for everyone.
The kitchen was very well equipped,and,apart from a dodgy tinopener,we couldn't fault it.The dining room proved to be a great place to meet up for games and plans for the day/night too.
I shared a twin bedded room on the very top floor,and our bathroom was amazing,with a full sized shower,plus bath with shower attachment,large washbasin and toilet.
Real leather settees in both lounges were comfy,and there was plenty of tables to rest our cuppa's on...;)
Would love to stay here again,as not too far from all Whitby has to offer~Fabulous!

“Fantastic accommodation in a lovely setting.”
Reviewed 9 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I stayed here to celebrate my 60th birthday with my family and friends. It was a perfect place to accommodate our group of 14 people for a week, with room for a further 4 to join us midweek. There was room for everyone to get together (the large dining table and two living rooms were particularly good for this) but without feeling we were ever on top of each other. The house itself is well-decorated, comfortable and very well equipped, even including children's plates etc. The location is excellent; just a few minutes walk into the town centre, the beach and the harbour. When we arrived the house was clean and tidy, and the housekeeper gave us a warm welcome. It was the perfect place to holiday with a large group and I would thoroughly recommend it..

“Superb accommodation in great location”
Reviewed 22 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This was our second visit to 6 Abbey Terrace having spent a long weekend with a group of friends several years ago. On this occasion the house hosted a gathering of our family and the accommodation didn't disappoint being at the very high standard that we had remembered. The house is very well equipped and decorated to a high standard. The kitchen table is vast and enabled the whole group to eat together and made for a great focal point. With 2 lounges you are able to find a quiet area in the house to pick up a book. Perfectly positioned for an easy walk to the harbour or the beach I would certainly recommend the house for a relaxing group holiday. Just be prepared for the exercise with the many flights of stairs to reach the top rooms :-)

“A wonderful place to get the people you love together”
Reviewed 3 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed at 6 Abbey Terrace to celebrate my 30th birthday, and had an absolutely fantastic time. It's a house which has been put together beautifully to allow a large party to settle in quickly and have a great holiday. The bedrooms are all lovely, and the split of twins and doubles really helpful to accommodate a variety of groups. The kitchen was great to allow better people than I to prepare lovely meals, and it was so amazing to have the massive dining room table, and look around it and see so many lovely people in one place!

It's an easy walk into the middle of Whitby (although it's steep - but that's true of anywhere in Whitby), to the beach, to the (half a) Royal Crescent. So there are plenty of pubs, shops, fish and chips within easy reach.

There's pretty much nothing you need to bring with you, as the house is wonderfully equipped (except maybe an extra CD player or two), you can just arrive, relax and settle in. There are two parking spaces, but the very friendly and relaxed landlords will arrange for very cheap extra permits if you need them.

Overall, such a lovely stay and a lovely place to celebrate together.

We rented this villa to have our first extended family Christmas and my 60th birthday celebration. The villa was perfect in every way, made even more perfect by being fully decorated for Christmas! Spotlessly clean and well cared for, we loved every minute and had to tear ourselves away. Whitby is a fantastic location and the villa is so near the town Centre.
