Why Davina Fox-Hill chose Whitby

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.

Amazing !!!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous, better than the photographs, the cottage was stunning. We loved it, so much so we didn't want to come home. Would definitely choose this cottage again when visiting Whitby. The views were stunning as were the opulent finishing touches, can not wait to return, thankyou

Stunning property, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Attention to detail was impressive, welcome bottle of fiz awaiting in the fridge. Beautiful, comfortable cottage, romantic views. Ideal location just off church street. was able to unload car from there and then park up at nearby train station (£10pd) the only advice id say is the staircase is steep and narrow please be careful if you have elderly people or dog (in my case) he had to stay downstairs, cant wait to return to whitby will definitely stay here again

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we were looking for and more. The view was fantastic, the locals were friendly, the house was just right with a very comfortable bed, big enough for us and our toddler, all the mod cons, and a wonderful atmosphere offering us the buzz of the nightlife along with the privacy of our own space.

The balcony was safe for our toddler to chase bubbles on, great for mum and dad to have cider and wine in the evenings, and after nightfall it was the perfect location for hot chocolate and a few Whitby ghost stories.

The owners were very attentive to our needs too.

Absolutely brilliant!

Beautiful cottage with great views over the harbour.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed for a memorable stay in Whitby. We enjoyed sitting by the fire and cooking our evening meal in the little kitchen. Shame the weather was not warm enough to sit out on the balcony and the sea was too choppy to swim in. Next time!

The only negative comment I have is that there is a yucky looking pile of building waste outside the door which reduces its kerb appeal a bit.
