“The small B&B with the big heart”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Booked, The Old Rectory so that my husband and I could take a trip down memory lane in whitby. I'm sure what ever I put here will not do this B&B justice, but I will try ! the host Ian met us as the car pulled into his driveway, welcomed us and asked if he could help with the bags. as if we were family friends. The house inside is beautiful and a very warm atmosphere. the room was very clean and the bed was very soft and comfy. the host Ian and his family made us very welcome and was more than happy to point us in the right direction to good restaurants in the area and good places to visit. The breakfast was more than enough for any appetite and pleasing to the eye as well as the stomach! Overall we had a wonderful stay and will stay here again when we are next in the area. YOU will not be disappointed with the Old Rectory

Stayed here for two nights in February.

The house is delightful, the rooms sumptuous and the breakfast is staggeringly good. All rooms are spotless and guests are even provided with fresh milk for their rooms.

Tip: Take note of Ian's directions as my satnav took me past this brilliant B&B. I was visiting relations in Middlesbrough and will definitely use this place again on my next visit.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All the rooms are fantastic.

Stayed here for two nights while attending a course in Stokesley, which was an easy 15 minute drive away. Very friendly owner, who was a pleasure to chat to and called ahead to warn me of a local road that had flooded before I arrived. The room I stayed in was large with a King bed and an excellent bathroom and hot, powerful shower. There is free wi-fi which was fast and makes a real difference. Breakfast in the morning was home-cooked and excellent, watched by the hens outside the door! Really have no criticisms and would stay again without hesitation - highly recommended.

Very nice big room with very nice high quality shower. It was all very clean and we were given plenty of tea/coffee/milk/kettle etc.

The breakfast was very nice using his own hens eggs and the owner is very flexible on the breakfast times.

Owner was very friendly and helpful and gave us lots of useful information about the local area (including maps/books which you can borrow while you're staying there as well)

There are lots of B&B's in the area and we were slightly worried that staying here in one of the 'cheaper' ones would be a problem but it exceeded all our expectations and we would definately stay here again in the future if we went back to the area.

Amazing house and really lovely host, who even picked us up from the train station! We walked the Cleveland way back to Saltburn the next morning where we'd left the car. Think they made us feel a bit too welcome as we were v late leaving to cover the 12 miles back the coast. Great last minute weekend break.
Faultless, would recommend!

We stayed the one night and were very happy with this establisment. The welcome was warm and friendly and the house stunning. Situated in a quiet village this is ideal for walkers and business folk alike. The the room was large and comfortable and the bath room luxurious. Breakfast was excellent with pleasant company. we will definately plan this stop in when we next walk in the area
