“Relaxing Stay”
Reviewed 13 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our stay at Kauri Cottage was very relaxing. It is well located, within walkable distance of the centre of Whitby and close to the Cinder Track which leads to Robin Hoods' Bay.

The cottage is well-equipped and given the quietness of the holiday village it wasn't at all difficult to sleep at night.

We travelled in a group of five and found the flat suitably spacious for our needs. All instructions and information were sent in advance by the owner, making it easy to resolve any small issues.

A lovely break - thanks again,

Mark

Many thanks Mark - we too believe the cottage is well located - near enough to enjoy the bustle of Whitby, but yet far enough away too to appreciate the quiet times. All the best to you and your family and if you visit Whitby again we would love to welcome you back to Kauri Cottage.

Kind regards - Martin and Julie

“Lovely break in a super cottage”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had an excellent stay in this cottage. We found it to be comfortable, clean and very well maintained. We all loved the location and the young children in our group were very impressed with the stunning views of the viaduct and river. We would definitely stay here again in the future and we would definitely recommend to friends.

“Great Cottage, Superb Location”
Reviewed 23 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Wonderful location very peaceful setting next to the river watched the heron fishing every evening. Only a short car journey into Whitby centre - nice walk via the viaduct - the most direct route. Superb property one of the best equipped holiday lets I have been in. The owners couldn't have been more helpful letting us book at very short notice. Hope to be back in the very near future.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The cottage is surprisingly spacious. It was clean, very comfortable and quiet. There are three levels and each level has a toilet / bathroom. We didn't walk into Whitby from the cottage but it is only a short drive or taxi journey. We certainly will recommend this cottage, thanks.

“Great cottage, great location and great price!”
Reviewed 3 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed with friends for a Birthday with dog intending to have a relaxing weekend and walk the hound! Short walk into Whitby but far enough away to be peaceful (only a £6 taxi/5 minute drive if you dont want to walk). Located right next to the cinder track which takes you right to the centre of town or towards Scarborough. I wasnt sure what i should expect for the price i paid and was pleasantly suprised to find a clean, tidy and well equipped and deceiving spacious cottage. Coincidentally booked the weekend of Tour De Yorshire without knowing but made a nice suprise with great atmosphere. Perfect for guests for any purpose. Owner suplied useful information prior to arrival including directions and places to eat/drink - very useful. As a beginner photographer, there is some great scenery, architecture wildlife around to take advantage of - particularly the old railway viaduct right ouotside the door and the wildlife on the river. Thank you, will definately book again.
