“Fabulous stay in a grand Georgian period town house...”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Nathan is a great host - friendly and only too happy to take care of any element of our stay. Lovely welcome pack including fresh bread, butter, drinks, milk - perfect after a long journey.
The house has been through a substantial renovation and Nathan has done a great job to present it as it is now - a fabulous Georgian house, with beautiful furnishings and tasteful decor. The wonderful dining room with long table has a touch of Downton Abbey about it!
It was a great experience for our family - very comfortable, lots of rooms and space, a great games room, TV in most rooms, wifi throughout, central location.
The kitchen is well equipped and spacious and if you don't feel like cooking, Whitby has a wealth of eating out options and all a short walk away.
We had a lovely stay in Whitby, it is a fantastic place to visit and the Yorkshire countryside is beautiful. Staying at Thistlebank was a great experience, we all thoroughly enjoyed it and wouldn't hesitate to book again. Thanks for a great holiday.

As a group of 8 friends Thistlebank was a fabulous house for us to spend a long weekend.
Located a short walk to the town we were able to leave the cars parked for the whole of our stay.
The house has been renovated to a very high standard & we thoroughly enjoyed making good use of the whole house; the games room was a great hit !!
Nathan,the owner, was very helpful & made us very welcome at Thistlebank Townhouse.
If we return to Whitby as a group we would definitely be very happy to return to Thistlebank :-)

“Excellent stay in a great property”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I travelled with my wife, 2 children and 2 grandparents late August 2014. I can only say good things about this grand house, it really is a breathtaking property, and the owner Nathan could not be more helpful.

The kitchen is lovely, it has an amazing dining room, games room, 3 on suites, TV's in all the rooms, add in 3 large parking spaces and what more can you ask for.

The weather was only okay whilst we were there but there is so much to do in the area I came back needing a rest and everybody had a great time.

It's not often I go the same place twice but I am sure I will will visit Whitby and stay in Thistlebank again.

If I had one tip, and this is for Whitby not the house, I would not bother taking bikes if you have kids. We took bikes and they never left the bike shed, it was far too busy and hilly for the kids to ride out.

“What an amazing house !!”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

On arrival at Thistlebank it's hard to believe that you are staying at this grand house - and that's before you even enter the house. Once the door opens you are amazed at the interior - from the grand hall to the bedrooms (which are suites) - with amazing views. All rooms are extremely large with facilities that suit everyone. The games room is fantastic - a real bonus. The kitchen is wonderful and has everything you could ever need. You could visit Thistlebank and never leave it as it is a fantastic sociable house - with plenty of room for quiet time if you need it. The owner was extremely helpful and made you feel at ease at staying in such a grand house. We visited as a family ageing between 5 and 72 and every one of us loved the house and were amazed at the splendour. Would we go back - without a doubt.

Everything about the house was brilliant, especially for a largish family holiday. Snooker room; great dining room for a murder mystery evening; massive bedrooms; great decor. Would go again.

Thistlebank is a large town house which is beautifully decorated and very clean. The house is situated right in the centre of whitby and is walking distance to shops and other amienties,there is three parking spaces which really good.The house has a large games room with a full size snooker table and darts which is good. The house has a large dinning room and also a large kitchen for dinning in aswell.The bedrooms are very spacious they all have televisions and settes or chairs for you to sit in chill which is very good when on hoilday. The property has everything you can ask for from washing machine to hairdryers. The owner is there to meet you when you arrive and depart which is very good. The owner is only a phone call away and he does answer you straight away which is a bonus,very helpful. I have to say this is the best property i have rented for a holiday , and i have rented quite alot through out the years.

“A unique and beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We travelled with our 3 children (aged 12, 5 and 2) and Mum. The house was perfect, lots of space for everyone to chill out whilst still enjoying some quality family time. The house is beautifully appointed with everything you could need. The beds were really comfortable, Games room a hit, and welcome pack a lovely surprise. All in all we couldn't have asked for more, our chidlren didn't want to leave!
