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.

Gorgeous cottage Gorgeous Views

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cottage and will come back in the future Perfect location for shopping though down a quiet section off the main church street which makes it just right in position- along with stunning views. I had to make up the my bed once I found the key but the rooms are lovely and cosy. Stairs a bit awkward for anyone with mobility problems but big spacious bedrooms and lovely balcony to sit on. Davina was helpful and always replied to messages and calls. Overall a lovely trip, look forward to coming back.

The property was lovely and cosy, everything you needed was there. The view was great and it was so relaxing sitting on the balcony watching the world go by. Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay.

The Folly-FAB!!!

  • 5 of 5

Yet again we really enjoyed our stay at The Folly, it is a beautiful quaint fisherman`s cottage. It has everything you need to make your stay awesome, it is clean, tidy and a beautiful place to stay. It`s really nice to be able to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and watch the fishing boats come and go. Would recommend it to anyone - pure delight!

Brilliant Experience

  • 5 of 5

Me and my wife had the best time staying at The Folly. The location is absolutely brilliant, in the nicest part of Whitby. The views from every room in the cottage are stunning at day and night. We planned on many nights out, but opted to stay in a enjoy a bottle of bubbly on the balcony, overlooking the harbour. The decor throughout the cottage is very classy and tasteful and the nautical theme throughout is very Whitby. The bed is very comfortable indeed. We would thoroughly recommend this trip for a romantic trip away. Davina is great to deal with and gave excellent instructions on how to find the cottage, which was a bit tricky the first time! She also gave an excellent fish and chip shop recommendation :) I could go on for ages about how great this place is, but you should book and find out for yourselves.
