Why Davina Fox-Hill chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

The Folly is a very special place. Its tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Church Street and is the perfect bolthole to enjoy the stunning views over the Harbour and out to Sea and to watch the fishing boats coming in to land their catch.

Went with two friends for a three day stay. We went sightseeing and all the usual seaside pastimes.

  • 5 of 5

The folly was a lovely property, very cosy and welcoming. We would definitely stay again. We had a small balcony which was a sun trap in the afternoon. The bedrooms were lovely, we all slept well it was a very quiet spot in the evenings. We were near cafes and the quant little shops that we love. Fantastic stay.

Gorgeous cottage overlooking Whitby harbour

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in this pretty cottage. It had lots of quirky features, such as a beautiful bathtub in the bedroom. Fantastic views from the windows and gorgeous views from the balcony overlooking the harbour.

Good amenities. Just one or two little bugbears, the postcode we were given was wrong and took us to Sandsend so do check that it is the right postcode. There was no microwave, only one towel each, (we would have brought more if we had known), not enough drawers for clothes so we had to keep them in the suitcase and some coat hangers for trousers would have been great. The oven was dirty and a pan had been put back that was dirty. But having said all that it is a beautiful cottage with the most perfect setting and we had a fabulous time and these small things didn't detract from such a special cottage. Thankyou

We lover the folly; it is small but perfectly formed. The views are perfect and we loved sitting chilling on the balcony in the evening. We will definitely be back.

Stayed here with my girlfriend son and shitzu for the weekend and it was a beautiful place to stay. The balcony was brilliant to sit on when the suns going down and my son had his own personal crabbing spot. In the perfect place in Whitby close to everything you need. Car parking was best just after the pie and mash shop which is £8 for 24 hours but get there early or late on for a spot. I recommend everyone should stay here I'll definitely be coming back

Wonderful, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful four night stay at The Folly. It had everything we needed and was in an amazing location. It was just enchanting to be so close to the sea and to be able to watch so much going on in the harbour from the comfort of the cotttage and its fantastic balcony. What a great setting !
