Cottage was quietly located with a pleasant garden. Owner helped us unload car. Milk in fridge and eggs from owners hens were provided. Park and ride to Whitby was quite near and very frequent (every 15 minutes). Would advise not taking car into Whitby which was very busy. Visit to Botham's tea room in Whitby is recommended. Location of cottage was convenient for travelling to various places including Sandsend, Runswick Bay, North York Moors centre at Danby, Saltburn, Robin Hoods Bay etc. Also enjoyed trip on the heritage railway. Steam engine took us from Grosmont to Pickering and back. Plenty of good walks in the area but some are very hilly! At the cottage,we made friends with the fussiest cats I have ever met. Also enjoyed meeting the alpacas. Note that it is difficult to find anywhere in the area to park that is free. Pay and Display car parks are the norm and are not cheap, so it is advisable to ensure that a plentiful supply of pound coins are available!
Stayed in this cottage for a weekend break with my husband and sons aged 15 and 11. We had a lovely weekend. The house was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed including nets to go crabbing! I realised I’d left my hairdryer at home. The property does not have a hairdryer however the owner kindly offered to reimburse me if I bought one in Whitby during our stay. I enquired about a couple of things with the owner over the course of the weekend and found them to be extremely responsive and helpful. The house was warm, very clean and beds were comfortable. The house is a stones throw from the beach and less than a 10 minute drive from Whitby. Would definitely stay here again to further explore this beautiful bit of coastline.
