“Little Gem”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This really is a little gem of a place, only a stones throw away from the centre but really quiet and peaceful.We found the cottage easily thanks to the detailed directions e-mailed to us after booking. The cottage is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, and the welcome pack was a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend to anybody.

“5 star accommodation”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Had a great short break in Whitby. Abbey View was beautifully decorated, homely, modern and very clean. It provided everything we needed (except a parking space which was a shame but parked on a nearby road 5 minuits away so wasn't too bad). Sharon responded to emails promptly and was very helpful. The whole booking process was quick and straight forward. I would definitely reccomend this cottage to friends and family.

“Comfortable retreat, with shops nearby”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This little treasure took a bit of finding but with the kind help of a taxi driver and a neighbour once we were inside it was worth it. The accommodation was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and fresh. We had the welcome pack and found our way around everything with no problem. It is close to the shops but is surprisingly quiet. A good night's sleep was had by all. We didn't want to leave.

“Lovely cottage - highly recommended!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The cottage was easy to book; we had quick confirmation from the owner, along with a welcome pack, via e mail, all within 24 hours of booking. On arrival, the cottage was easy to locate from the directions we'd received; everywhere was spotlessly clean; and all appliances, including the boiler, easy to operate, and there was a useful manual covering all the basics too. The decor was themed in purple which we really liked; the two bedrooms were very comfortable and we particularly liked the king size bed in the top bedroom, which had a fantastic view over the rooftops to the Abbey.

All appliances were clean and easy to operate; the cottage was lovely and warm (even though we had sunny days, it was cold at nights so we really appreciated this). Although on the small side, we found the space adequate for four of us - including two children aged 11 and 14, who thought the cottage was brilliant. The only slight downside was no outside space, as this was a Spring break that wasn't a huge issue, but it would have been a bigger issue for a summer holiday.

The cottage is very well located, just a few minutes walk to the town centre and 15 minutes or so from the beach.

We ate out a couple of times and cooked at the cottage twice too, the kitchen was clean and all appliances modern / easy to use, and included a small dishwasher - very handy!

This was our first visit to Whitby and we were very impressed; loved the Abbey, full of history; the museum (just opposite, in the park), the coffee shops - Sherlock's in particular was a real find - the shops, and the beach, miles of golden sand. We also went to Robin Hoods Bay and loved it, just 20 minutes or so by car and well worth a trip.

All round the cottage was very good value for money, we had an excellent break, and comes highly recommended.

“Fantastic cottage in great location.”
Reviewed 26 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Really lovely little cottage in great location - just a quick walk in to Whitby but away from the crowds. No parking but this isn't a problem as you can pull up to drop off bags and loads of residential streets nearby. Great condition with everything you need!

“Absolutely BRILLIANT !!!”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

Very good position in Whitby, enjoyed watching the floods and tidal surge, we go to Whitby a lot and really enjoyed our week stay. The cottage is brilliant with EVERYTHING you could possibly need. We both needed a good rest after working for 6/7 days a week for a few months leading up to this break. Fully intend rebooking this cottage in 2014, and would certainly recommend the cottage, Thanks a lot !!
