Excellent. Every little thing thoughtfully catered for. Walking distance to town but well tucked away and peaceful.

A great little cottage. Perfectly located in Whitby to see all. Being there out of season was great as parking can be a bit of an issue in a very popular town.

Seagull Cottage is in an amazing location in Whitby, about 5 minuites walk from the train station and local attractions. The cottage is stunning. Extremely comfortable, well equipped, clean and has lots of nice touches. The owner has thought of everything to make your stay relaxed and enjoyable. Have already recommended to family and friends. Thank you Seagull Cottage for a wonderful stay......We will be back. Stayed from 7.10.16 to 10.10.16.

Lovely cottage. Very clean and well equipped. Can't fault the cottage itself but the steps leading to it spoiled it. I think they would be very slippery in winter and anyone not confident on their feet would find it a little distressing.

A lot of time and effort goes into making sure my cottage is well presented at all times and correctly advertised. Such advert includes that the cottage is not suitable for guests with mobility issues. The Oxford Dictionaries definition of distressing is ' to cause anxiety, sorrow or pain '. None of these apply to the steps leading up to my cottage. Very disappointed by your review.

I stayed last month with my daughter and nieces it really is a lovely cottage can't fault it, the reason i gave location a 3 is because i stay in whitby every year and im use to waking up to seeing the sea so that is my opinion if the location do t let it put you off, however it is very close to everything confusing to find at first and no good for girls who like to wear heels as there are lots and lots if steps before the steps it shows on the pictures so we had to get our flats out. The flat has dehumidifiers and the fill up very quickly and are quite noisy so best to leave them off when your in .

Thank you for the review. Sorry you were disappointed with the location, however the cottage is not advertised as having a sea view. The dehumidifier is more as a precaution to stop the build up of moisture in such an old property. As explained in the welcome book you are welcome to keep it turned off during your stay. We all have different standards and expectations and it is really important to read the description of the property carefully before booking to make sure it meets your requirements.
