Found this gem online and stayed for five nights and it was excellent, it is well layed out having a galley kitchen, a lovely lounge with a balcony over the harbour, a good size bedroom on the first floor and everywhere you go you can see the harbour, even in the shower,there is also a single bed on the first floor,however the access to this is through the main bedroom, The steps are steep but not a problem and it adds to the character of this quirky cottage. We would definitely stay here again its a wonderful relaxing base to stay.
Absolutely stunning cottage overlooking the harbour with balcony. We stayed for the weekend and didn't want to leave. So many gorgeous things to look at in The Folly! We were left a bottle of prosseco for our anniversary! Bed really comfortable. We will definitely be booking again
The balcony overhangs the harbour and there are sea views from every room.
Undoubtedly one of the best locations in Whitby this charming quirky cottage is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Not for the physically impaired - steps to the bedrooms are steep.
Ive been coming to Whitby for many years and I've never seen a seal in the harbour.
That changed the morning following a storm the previous night.Swimming about to greet us as we woke was a solitary seal.
I can't promise you will see seals but the comings and goings in the harbour will keep you amused for hours. This is a wonderful place to stay with all Whitby has to offer on the doorstep.
We had been looking forward to this holiday and we were not disappointed, We love Whitby anyway, its so pretty. The Folly is a hidden gem, seconds away from the hustle and bustle. Beautifully decorated and with everything you would need, luxurious and functional.
We spent so much time sitting on the balcony overlooking the harbour watching the beautiful sunsets and loved watching the fishermen bring in their catches.
Yes of course it rained (its England) but it didn't diminish the holiday. We just got on with it.
Loved the place and wish we hadn't had to leave. Will definitely be back.
