“A real little gem of a place”
Reviewed 6 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

a lovely clean and secure place in an excellent location ( central Whitby ) you will find everything you could want or need from wifi to a coffee measurer!! Great view of the harbour. A very short walk from the train station ( 5 mins ) with lots of free on street parking. Beautiful features and the most amazing light fittings. We felt at home as soon as we walked in and loved every minute of this truly unique and amazing place. Thank you so much Pat, Julie and jacqui x x

i've been going to Whitby for years and this is the best bar none. What made it extra special is you have everything you would need like a real home( really! ) . The wine was a lovely treat too. I am already thinking when I can next book. Parking even on the busiest weekend isnt a problem as the abbey has lots of space and does 24 hour parking and you can drop of the bags x

“Brilliant home from home”
Reviewed 14 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Great location, lovely accommodation, with everything you could possibly need for a well earned break. Would recommend it to anyone wanting a central location in Whitby as it is so handy for all local amenities, shops, cafes and the beach.

“Fantastic home from home!”
Reviewed 14 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

we're just back from a two night stay at 17a grape lane and what can we say?...........fantastic location and amazing accomodation, we were really sad to leave! The house was spotlessly clean and contained everything that you could possibly need. It's beautifully finished throughout and we will be going back. Amazing views from the lounge and master bedroom. Excellent communication from Emma made the booking process easy, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone. If you park your car as per the Information pack, you'll find you are in walking distance of any facilities you need, restaurants, shops, bars, local attractions etc. Thank you!

“A perfect holiday”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The cottage was perfect for myself, partner, dad, teenage nephew and 2 dogs! Having 2 bathrooms and 3 toilets was a great help. There was everything we needed for a comfortable stay including wifi, DVDs, hairdryer, washing up liquid, tea, coffee, toilet roll, cloths, tea towels, umbrella, even wine and milk! I couldn't fault anything. There was also a great selection of books and some games. I have special memories of this holiday. Thank you so much.
A little tip for future guests: ear plugs may be useful as the seagulls can get quite noisy!
