    Cottage is stunning with views across the harbour. The main negative is the parking, I had to park a good 5 minute walk away (which is alot when bringing in suitcases etc). Absolute pot luck as to whether you get a space anywhere near the property. Pictures also lead me to believe that there was a small garden along side the cottage but the garden didn't belong to number 4 where we stayed. Felt a little mislead as the garden swung the booking for me as I have children. But those things aside white cottage is a beautiful place with wifi, choice of entertainment and beautiful views.

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are sorry about the garden misleading you, we will get in touch with our agents as we are waiting for new photos and will ask them not to take photos of things that do not belong to us. Thank you for your review.

    Lovely cottage with amazing view from the terrace & bedroom. Great location. Although unable to park outside the cottage we found a spot further up the road where car stayed for the weekend so not an issue. Hope to return !

    Charming, cosy old cottage with superb views and a lovely patio. There were 4 adults staying so sitting room a little cramped when we tried to sit at the table to share a meal. Would recommend removal of the dresser and have the table placed there instead. Parking is poor too but property is well placed for all local amenities and there is so much to do in Whitby and good bus and train access too . Great value for money and we hope to return for another visit . Cottage very well equipped but no sharp knives for preparing food.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Sorry about the sharp knives, we have supplied them and not sure what has happened to them, but we will replace the. Also removing the dresser would not give any more room, but you are welcome to pull the table out to seat 4 people.

    We have stayed here at least five times and love the cottage. However, it could benefit from some updating. The lounge is very cramped with unnecessary furniture, and the three piece suite is very old and uncomfortable.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We have now refurbished the main bedroom, but are awaiting new photos. The suite is a quality suite and much stronger than the modern furniture of today, as this is a very old property we would like to keep the suite. Eventually we will let it go but at the moment we think it is still very comfortable. We also have had wifi installed.

    Beautiful character cottage, tastefully decorated & well appointed. There are steep hills and/or steps to negotiate, on foot to access the town centre from the cottage, which was the only issue for my elderly parents, but we got around it by using our car or taxis.

    This cottage is TINY. If 4 people were in it there wouldn't be room to move. The staircase is uneven and very difficult to negotiate especially because there is a chair which blocks the door at the bottom. There is nowhere to move the chair to. The shower shrieks when it is turned on. This can only be stopped by turning on the cold tap so the shower is never more than lukewarm. The walls and floors are extremely thin, all the floors creak loudly so if anyone moves around in the night or early morning, it is impossible to do so quietly. There is only one small wardrobe in one of the bedrooms which everyone has to share.
