“Whitastic”
Reviewed 28 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

First time in Whitby, Cottage is in the best location and felt home from home. We were so close to everything and were able to venture out even with our 10 month old boy. Night times in doors are normal for us at the mo and were fab in the cottage with its deep sofas and log burner. Definitely would recommend this lovely cottage, close to Rusty Shears for an afternoon gin and close to Sherlocks for a morning coffee and cake :)

Brilliant review and so appreciated. Again & again guests leave comments that allow others to see how nice not only Gulls Cry is but also Whitby itself.

A big thank you for an open & honest review, 10am departure is to leave cottage at its best for others, always negotiable if next guests not in same day and nearly all cottages have the same check out time.
Web site states one Bathroom, the Cottage actually sleeps eight but as only the one bathroom limit it to six.

“Fantastic as always”
Reviewed 28 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This must have been the 6th or 7th time in the cottage so that must say how fantastic we think it is.
Everything you could think you might need is provided and the proximity to the front is perfect. It has become my home from home and thank you Colin for keeping it so perfect

Can't wait to go back again

“Had a great long weekend stay!”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We have just stayed at Guys Cry Cottage for a long weekend with our three young children. The cottage is lovely, very well presented and clean. It contains all the amenities one would need plus many of those small things extra. A nice yard with table & chairs and even a little summer house. The location is fantastic, a three minute walk and you are on the front. Makes life so much easier with young children, a lesson I have learned from past experience. You cannot park outside the cottage but you do get a four day W zone parking pass so you can park reasonably near by then forget the car and simply enjoy Whitby.
