“Another Great Stay”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

another great stay at a coastal holidays house in Whitby.

The house was well prepared and looked after as with the previous property that we had stayed in. Everything that we needed was provided, although the the parking space was a fair distance from the house.

Location was great in the centre of Whitby. Being central there was a fair amount of noise and this, along with the spread over 3 'cosy' floors needs to be fully considered if you have 2 young children like we do. It worked out ok for us, but wasn't always the easiest to manage!

Booking and communication with sharan couldn't be easier, and with a few houses in Whitby there's sure to be one to suit!

“Cozy 18C cottage in the middle of Whitby close to everything.”
Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The cottage was very clean and well supplied with all necessities. The beds were OK but could use an update. It was very close to the bridge to other side of the estuary and to the pier, and many restaurants and pubs and the ubiquitous fish and chip shops.
Parking and traffic flow is a big problem and we had difficulty unloading when we arrived because there was absolutely no parking bay available at the time. The owner does provide a parking bay which is a 10 minute walk away, but if one has luggage it is problematic.
Having said that, I would recommend this cottage as very comfortable.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you were disappointed with some aspects of your stay. We all have different standards and expectations and therefore different opinions of what needs updating. A lot of guests find having a private parking bay in Whitby a huge advantage. They usually (as i recommend in my welcome letter) park briefly outside Wick to un load and then go and park the car. Unfortunately i can do little about the the traffic flow in Whitby as this is totally out of my control. However i appreciate your recommending my cottage as comfortable

“Absolutely Spot On!”
Reviewed 28 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Had the pleasure of staying in Wick Cottage at the end of February with some friends and we absolutely LOVED it. Perfectly located in the town centre for all that was happening. The cottage was lovely and clean, lots of helpful information in the guest folder and the beds were so comfy. Best nights sleep I've had in ages. We will definitely be back!

“Perfect Cottage for a weekend with friends”
Reviewed 25 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

We stayed at the cottage over Goth Weekend and it was perfect.
Its cosy but there was plenty of space for all of us. It was very clean and had lots of useful information in the folder. Wifi was included.
It could not have been in a better location and the allocated parking (albeit a short walk away) was a bonus!

“Great location”
Reviewed 19 November 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Very comfortable - nice decor - location ideal despite being a walk from car parking space - allocated space was a real plus! Managed to unload on street before parking so not a problem. Accommodation everything that was needed for a weekend chill out. Beds very comfy - and apartment spotless. Would recommend and definitely stay there again. Great now wifi installed as well.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Many people find the free parking bay a bonus in Whitby despite the 5-10 minute walk however we all have different opinions and expectations. It sounds like overall you enjoyed your stay so I hope you decide to visit again :)

“Perfect Cottage in Gods own Country”
Reviewed 7 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Wick Cottage was perfect for exploring Whitby and the North Yorkshire Coast. Centrally located, wonderfully appointed and very clean. We spent a week in Wick Cottage with two young children and Grandma, it was absolutely ideal for us all. The nearby pub did create some noise of an evening over the weekends, having live music, but to be honest it wasn't loud enough to cause any of us an issue and gave a real sense of being in the centre of a vibrant and lively town. We wouldn't hesitate recommending this holiday rental and would certainly book it again in the future, its a real gem!
