    Fabulous location , spacious and well equipped. A few problems with the plumbing though: the only toilet working properly is on the top floor: a long way up!

    A fantastic holiday and a very peaceful, welcoming cottage - a real home from home.

    Great location, nice and quiet by the river. Easy walk into Whitby and all it has to offer as a typical seaside town. Lovely "neat" house.

    fantastic location, well equipped, however.......the house was freezing cold on arrival-would have been nice to have the heating on, the fridge was switched off/smelly, there was an electrical fuse on the dining room floor, brick dust on the kitchen side (looked like a new fuse box had recently been fitted above) and the TV had failed its electrical PAT test bearing a sticker "unsafe do not use". After three days the sink blocked and the macerator threw dirty smelly water all over the kitchen, we used the washing machine once towards the end of the week and it leaked. On our final day we found two baking trays in a cupboard which were full of dirty water and bits of onion (we assume they are still there?). We go on cottage holidays every year and have never written a bad review before. We don't like to moan, so on the positive side...........We called the office staff on our arrival day about the TV and the Fridge (initially thought it was broken). The response was good and they went straight out and brought a new TV (albeit much smaller than the original); when we phoned about the blocked sink the lady on the phone was very helpful and the plumber was there in minutes. We gave up moaning after that as it's a bit of a drain when you are on holiday. On the whole it should be a lovely place and is well furnished but there doesn't appear to be anybody taking a personal interest in it so problems prevail. Have always stayed at places which are owner maintained before and won't stray from that again after this.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the agency; This is the first time I have had complaints of this nature and the issues you've raised should not have happened and have since been addressed. I am sorry for the inconvenience these matters caused you during your holiday, please accept my sincere apologies.
