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.

We were sadly disappointed

  • 2 of 5

The cottage itself was not conducive to two friends staying in separate bedrooms and the month of February!

The weather was so so cold and there was a biting northeast wind!! Certainly not anyone’s fault! But hampered by the fact that it was so uncomfortable to stay in for any length of time. The two chairs were more for look than comfort.

No microwave, intermittent free view. Bathroom in first bedroom. Only accessible by entering the first bedroom.

Twisty staircases would have been easier to manage if there was rope to help on both of them.

All this could have been avoided had we researched the property more.

We take full responsibility. We were both exhausted and desperate for a break...........it was really expensive........and we assumed ( wrongly) that it would be great. Renting in Whitby is not new to either of us.

This cottage is ideal for the summer weather, making use of the balcony and being out in Whitby. A couple, not using the attic bedroom, and loving all the upmarket kitsch around..........would find it ideal.

Sadly we didn’t. I also would be very wary of putting a small child in the attic bedroom with those stairs!

Far too expensive for what was on offer.

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!
