We had a lovely stay in this mews house, it has absolutely everything one would need and expect in a self catering holiday let, you are right on the river which is very peaceful.... we had some lovely walks around here, esp once up on the viaduct...took us about 20 mins to walk into Whitby.... Whitby is absolutely stunning...lots of places too eat and drink, the steam bus is a must....also we took a trip on the steam train from Whitby to Gothland (Heartbeat set) well worth a visit...

“Beautiful views in peaceful surroundings”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable, sitting in the most beautiful valley beside a river. We loved watching the wildlife from the window and waking up to the beautiful views. A lovely, quiet spot. Whitby is walkable, although getting back after dark can be a bit tricky, as the roads and paths are unlit some of the way. It's only 5 minutes by car though and we found plenty of free parking. Loads to see and do in and around Whitby, we'll definitely be coming back and would stay in the cottage again. Thanks for a great stay.

Just got back from a five night break with bonus good weather! Everything perfect as described you hardly need bring anything all is there from cutlery to there own stuff such as medicine cabinet sewing kit board games we were short of milk one day so borrowed one of theirs and replaced when we went to the shops later I've never seen so much wildlife on the river outside the front door also lots of rabitts and ducks but beware if you feed them like I did they won't leave you alone for the whole visit.just be careful if you take a dog as mine had a habit of wanting to eat everything that moved so leads at all times will definitely return again...

We rented this cottage to get away from the Christmas madness and to celebrate our anniversary. It is a delightful cottage in a lovely, quite and beautiful setting. The cottage was clean with everything that we needed. It was a 15 minute walk into Whitby by the old railway track, which is a very pleasant walk. Would stay again.

“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

What a lovely cottage in a superb location. Everything you could want was provided and also an excellent welcome pack-those biscuits were delicious!. Clean and really comfortable. Right beside the river and below the viaduct, it was so quiet and peaceful, a truly relaxing holiday retreat. A lovely 15 minute walk over the viaduct into Whitby, so no need for the car. Lovely to see the ducks, rabbits and heron each day. Pity we never saw the seal. Also to see the steam trains passing. Excellent value for the location and accommodation. We did not want to leave and will definitely be back!
