About Kev

We are a couple in our early 40s. We got married a couple of years ago and as one of us was working in the North East we both relocated in Saltburn By The Sea when we got married. We lived in Saltburn for about a year and were absolutely gutted to have to move back to London when both our Jobs ended. Luckily we found our little cottage in Loftus, which enabled us to keep coming to this beautiful part of the world. Although Loftus might not be the perfect village, it is the perfect base for holidaying as it is conveniently surrounded with beautiful walks, drives to the coast and nearby touristic places. The village has a supermarket, a butcher, bank, post office and a bakery, perfect for self catering or it is less than 2 mins drive to the Tiger Inn pub , which a lot of our guest gave good feedback on the food.

Why Kev chose Loftus

It was the perfect base for us, We fell in love with the cottage .

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is within 5 mins walk to the local Co-op, butcher, bank, post office,bakery & Cafe,

It is the perfect base for exploring, Saltburn ( best fish and Chips on the beachfront), Staithes ( Famous for captain cook) Runswick bay, Whitby & Robin Hoods Bay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great cottage clean, well equipped and well organised with friendly owners makes this a good place to stay . Not so much in the village of Loftus, however close to lots of lovely places to visit, we had a great time.

Lovely break away

  • 5 of 5

The property is lovely and met all of our needs. The welcome pack on arrival was such a nice touch. The cottage is warm and cosy. There were 4 of us - 2 couples and we had plenty of space. We went for a New Years break and it was such a good place to stay - just a short drive to local areas of interest. Kev was more than helpful before we went and offered lots of suggestions for our New Year’s Eve meal. Thanks for a fab stay!

Well-appointed cottage in a handy location, great for exploring the Yorkshire coast north of Whitby.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice little cottage, cosy and well-equipped. Loved the decor, and the goodies on arrival were a nice touch.

Loftus itself is nothing special, but with the property being located just of the main road, it was very handy for exploring the coastal area north of Whitby. Saltburn is only a 15 minute drive away, whilst Runswick Bay is about 15 minutes in the other direction - both highly recommended, as are Staithes, Sandsend (best beach ever!) and of course Whitby itself.

All in all, we were very happy with the cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our short break.

Dark and cold

  • 3 of 5

Just a personal thing, cottage to dark and low for us, oven and grill you could write your name on the doors so did not use, snail trails on carpet off putting when it was supposed to have been cleaned that morning, but we enjoyed our days out.

We have changed our cleaner based on your feedback and truly apologize about the situation you found. In regards to the cold there is central heating and a log fire which you were very free to use. In regards to the low beams this is part of the period features of the property and was mentioned in the advert. We apologize that you found this an inconvenience. Kind Regards Kev and Nisha

Nice cottage, shame about the location

  • 3 of 5

If I had known how disappointing the town of Loftus was going to be I probably wouldn't have booked this cottage. It's the kind of place that if you drove through you wouldn't even consider stopping. However, it's a well decorated and well looked after cottage and a nice place to live in for a couple of days. It's access to places like Staithes is handy.
