“First Class”
Reviewed 1 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

This cottage is a fantastic base for a family holiday, it really has everything you could want and is so central that everything is only a 5-10 min walk away. Parking really was not a problem and you can do so free of charge less than a 3min walk up a small road.
The place was spotless and we felt very much at home. Colin the owner gave all the info we needed and it was very easy to find following his directions.

“WOW - Fantastic ...lovely Cottage”

person found this review helpful

we stayed at Gulls Cry Cottage Fri. to Tues over Jubilee weekend......what a place the cottage is beautiful could not fault anything at all about the place. Colin (the owner) was on hand (phone) to help out at every opportunity. The only thing i can think of as a negative is the parking but we were made aware of this before we arrived and didnt really have a problem parking. We will hopefully re-visit in the near future and will recommend to friends and family who are visiting Whitby.

Many thanks for your kind review, to date we have been fortunate and not received any negative feedback at all. I welcome open and honest critisism, this is the only method of ever correcting any wrongs or misconceptions I may have about how suitable and appropriate the Cottage is, for the perfect break.
I sincerely hope my guests continue to find it as welcoming as yourselves, whilst I will endevour to continue upgrading and improving where appropriate, thankyou.

Thank you for a wonderful review, I take on board all comments, positive or negative and have been trying my best to obtain a car parking area for Gulls Cry Cottage. Unfortunately all car parks in Whitby have long waiting lists and I am currently on 5 waiting lists to give an even more complete and comprehensive package.
I do give precise details for convenient parking usually only a few minutes from the cottage.

Many thanks for a wonderful review. I have attempted to cover as many possibilities as possible to make the cottage a wonderful place to stay. It has taken over 18mths to renovate but I am still prepared to modify it, should general opinion suggest modifications to improve it.

“Beautiful cottage in the perfect location.”
Reviewed 18 April 2012 for a stay in March 2012

I stayed at Gulls Cry Cottage in March with 2 friends, we stayed for 3 nights. The cottage was excellent, it had just been refurbished and all the fixtures and fittings were brand new and of good quality. It was a really cosy cottage and was very well equipped. It is situated just a couple of streets back from the front and I'd say it's in the perfect location! Given that it's so close to the centre it's very quiet and the only noise we could hear was the seagulls! I have to say, it felt like a home away from home. I would highly recommend it and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if I visited Whitby, which is very likely!

“Great accommodation, would definitely use again.”
Reviewed 17 April 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Was very pleasantly surprised by the location and facilities of Gulls Cry Cottage. The location being so close to Whitby was a bonus. The cottage itself was excellent, the attention to detail impressive, the good quality furnishings and the layout helped to make our stay memorable. Would definitely recommend to anyone contemplating a visit to this area.

The detail alas I can take little credit (well some!) I had a fine old gentleman of 76yrs young who is without doubt an inspiration to me and old school master craftsman. He not only refurbished old artefacts but also dug out 6" concrete floors and refurbished the Court Yard and Summer House virtually single handed, using hand tools only.
An amazing man for any age but 76yrs, WOW!

Me and my family stayed at Gulls Cry Cottage in March and had a fantastic weekend, the Cottage itself is very luxurious and homely and i'd highly recommend staying here to any of my friends/family. I'm already looking forward to my next stay later on in the year.

To sum up my stay in one word it would have to be 'Fantastic'

So pleased you had a brilliant time and many thanks for your kind comments. I have tried hard to furnish for comfort but yet maintain a good quality and pleasing home from home.
I really hope more holiday makers agree but I am always open to constructive comments to constantly improve quality/comfort & facilities.
Many thanks
