We've just spent three nights here and it was great. I loved the fact we had a Christmas tree and the thoughtful festive gifts just added to the whole experience. I would highly recommend this cottage for able bodied visitors. It's very tastefully decorated with super spacious bedrooms. We will definitely be booking again. Thanks

Management response:

Many thanks for your kind review. We wish you all a very Happy New Year. See you again soon. Kind regards We Love Whitby Team

Arrived in Whitby for four days and picked the keys up from the pub, lovely cottage we found everything possibly that we needed, although I only cooked bacon for breakfast. Nice touches like coffee, tea, milk, and other things supplied on arrival. Underfloor heating was fab as was the central heating, power shower was pretty powerful, son in law said...

Management response:

Many thanks for your very kind review. We are so pleased you had a great stay and we are slowly making our way through the small touches required. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Many thanks We Love Whitby Team

Great Location, 5 min walk to shops, pubs and attractions. Cottage itself was very nice although could do with a lick of paint and the shower cubicle on 1st floor needs a good clean as it had mould probs due to damp on the outside of the cubicle itself, bed linen and towels etc clean and fresh. Overall very nice....

Management response:

Many thanks for your review. We are currently working on the shower cubicle but struggled before the busy season. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to seeing you again soon. Kind regards We Love Whitby Team
