We stayed here in Jasmine Cottage back in October 2011. Our newborn son was 3 months old, and we also had a daft springer spaniel just over a year old, and we wanted somewhere nice and quiet away from all the hustle and bustle of the town.
Our cottage was immaculate, clean and spacous, with a lovely view of the River Esk and the railway, providing an ideal spot to wave to the steam trains going by! Wildlife in abundance, and we even got sunshine!
With family being from Whitby we needed no introduction, but they provide each cottage with plenty of local information including handy numbers for local doctors etc.
Lovely family owned properties, we had such a nice welcome from all.
Our only 'complaint' was that the bed was a double and not a kingsize. My hubby being over 6 foot 2 he struggled to get comfy during the stay, but we were assured this is being looked into, and they are replacing doubles for kingsizes soon. So that is good enough for us!
Will definately be back, and have recommended to family and friends - although on two occasions they have been fully booked - but this just proves our recommendation was spot on!
