    The cottage was excellently equipped (though, we could have done with matches when we had a barbecue!). There was a well equipped kitchen, so much so, we had to reorganise the cupboards a little to fit food in! There were two floors, the upper floor being a double bedroom and bathroom (with a view of the sea and the abbey in the distance!). The lower floor being a double room, a twin room, utility room, living room and kitchen. They layout was perfect for our more elderly party member, as there were no stairs to climb. There was a secluded rear garden that was not overlooked, unless you count the cows, and a front area that had adequate space for our car to drive in, and drive out. This was fortunate, as the cottage is on a reasonably busy main B road. That meant there was an almost constant traffic noise, some of it quite loud with the windows open, although this was never a real problem. It took about ten minutes to drive into Whitby, with the cottage thoughtfully providing a disk for parking in disk zones (max stay three hours). Driving was necessary, as there was no bus service to Sneaton. The only real facilities in Sneaton was the local ice-cream place. Fortunately, this was an excellent place to visit, with lovely ice-creams and wonderful food. Definitely worth visiting! Whitby itself has a wealth of places to visit, so much so that we did not have chance to visit them all in a week. Robin Hood's Bay was close, and worth a visit. We only ate out a few times, visiting the Forge (very good pub food), Magpie (excellent fish and chips) and lunch at the local farm. The owner popped over to check everything was all right, and she was very friendly and helpful. You got the feeling nothing was too much trouble for her to make your stay better. It is worth noting that there is NO internet at the property (not always a bad thing if it makes your children emerge from their gadgets), but mobile phone reception was excellent. If we were to return to Whitby, we would definitely consider Holly Garth again.

    The cottage is comfortable if somewhat isolated from amenities like shops, post office , newsagent and restaurants. There is a tea shop/ice cream parlour a few minutes walk away but this is open only mornings and early afternoon. It is a short drive to Whitby which is well provided with high quality fish restaurants and is scenic. The fishing village of Staithes and the North Yorks Moors railway at Grosmont are also an easy drive. The cottage is a good base for the moors and the coast. The owners live across the road and are very helpful.

    Holly Garth is perfect for a 'get away from it all' holiday. The quality of the cottage and its fixtures and fittings are excellent. We like to cook in, as well as eat out, and everything we required for some celebration meals was provided. It is very cosy and warm, and despite a couple of days of East coast weather blowing in, we were very comfortable. We were there over the Easter holidays and really appreciated the nice touches of fresh spring flowers and four chocolate bunnies left for us! We would certainly recommend it, and hope to return in the future.

    Too many cobwebs behind headboards, drawers and chair, getting in your hair and on your face. Huge Spiders running across the lounge, plus on the walls above your head in bedroom. Blackout curtains made bedroom too dark, so you had to put light on to visit the toilet and the Spiders were all around you, so I had to sleep with light on as I am not keen on Spiders. Plus light switches not where you expect them to be and you had to search in the dark to find them, also step at back door too high for us with having disability issues and we had to hang on to door frame to get into the house. No proper shower downstairs only shower attachment on tap so you would have to climb in the bath to use it and we could not manage to do that. So we had to rely on baby wipes the whole time we were there. Could not climb the stairs to check if there was a shower up there!! Also I got no sleep due to the cars, lorries, motorbikes and just general road noise well into the night !!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you have had issues during your stay. The property is in a rural location so more spiders are expected. There has also been no previous complaints about spiders or cleanliness at the property before. There is bedside table lamp at both sides of the bed and also the main room light. There is a pull cord over the bed to turn the main bedroom light on. Our property is not advertised as a disabled friendly property. There are also 3 doorways into the property, with the patio doors measuring at 3” lower than the back door for easier access. The description and photographs do show that the shower downstairs is just an attachment over the bath. As the website shows the property is located alongside a B road so noise is expected however there is double glazing at the property to minimise the disruption.

    This bungalow lacked for nothing in facilities. We received a warm welcome from the owner Yvonne who also provided some little extras for us - biscuits etc. Seaton is a little bit isolated, the local pub looks very untidy and poorly maintained, so we dis not try the meals. Lots of lovely locations to visit, all withing a reasonable travelling distance.
