We stayed for 2 nights in the cottage. Perfectly situated for walking into Whitby. The cottage is small but very well furnished. Very clean. Comfortable bed. Wine and milk in the fridge on arrival. Biscuits, tea and coffee there too. Would highly recommend a visit.

Stayed here with 3 friends and we had the most amazing time. This cottage has everything you could want and the added extras are a special touch. The finishings in the cottage are to a high spec and it is so spacious, even for 4 adults. We all love it here and can't wait to return.

Management response:

Thank you from Bell Island Cottage. So glad you had a good stay and would like to return
