Excellent well-appointed property in a central location
We had a long weekend here with some friends, attracted by the good reviews, the facilities and the location. The property was exactly as described; well-appointed, clean and comfortable. Good central heating and well equipped kitchen. Excellent information was provided about the property and its equipment, and about Whitby in general. We were very pleased with our choice. Thoroughly recommended.
Lovely comfortable cottage in a great position for everything
We've had a great week at Whitby and Lobster Pot Cottage was brill in the centre of Whitby and with everything you needed for your holiday. The beds were really comfy and having your own bathroom was a bonus - will be back. Thanks to David & Alison!!
Great place to stay
This was perfect for our requirements, a long weekend for 6 people. Plenty of space for us all, each couple having use of own bathroom.
All bedding, towels, kitchen, bathrooms etc were spotless on arrival. As we were 3 couples with 3 cars, the owner kindly left us parking permits so we didn't have to pay for parking during our stay.
The owner was easily contactable before and during our stay.
It was lovely and cosy on a really, really cold weekend. Very centrally located so you can walk everywhere in Whitby.
We've stayed in other cottages which we've been disappointed with but I have to be honest, I'm struggling to fault this one. It is exactly as described and as it appears in the photos.
Would definitely recommend and next time we need a place to stay in Whitby, I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Lobster Pot again.
Thanks for a great stay!
What's not to like???
Comfortable, clean, well equipped cottage in ideal central location. Accommodated 6 adults with no problems. It's quite tricky arranging a holiday for 6 adults to be equally happy and I found the owner very, very helpful with all the arrangements, including a last minute alteration to date!! Wouldn't hesitate to visit again and would recommend to anyone.
Great accommodation in ideal location
We had a super week in lovely accommodation which was close to all Whitby's amenities. We couldn't ask for anything better.
We were six adults and the house layout, facilities and location were all fantastic. We looked at many properties which can accommodate 6-8 people but they only offered one bathroom which is really not adequate. Communication with the owner before, during and after our stay was excellent. The information provided was thorough. We would recommend the house to anyone.
Whitby Beach : Access from town, or down the ramps from the West Cliff car parks - or by the cliff lift. This is where the beach huts are, and there's a lifeguard on duty during the summer months.
Tate Hill Beach : Within the harbour itself. Small, but perfectly formed - offering some very safe bathing. Good access from here to the East pier which is perfect for a romantic stroll or a spot of fishing.
Sandsend, Kettleness and Runswick Bay are only a short drive north of Whitby.

Whitby is a seaside town, and has an established maritime, mineral and tourist heritage. Its East Cliff is home to the ruins of Whitby Abbey, the town's oldest and most prominent landmark. Other significant features include the swing bridge, which crosses the River Esk and the harbour, which is sheltered by the grade II listed East and West piers. The town's maritime heritage is commemorated by statues of Captain Cook and William Scoresby, as well as the whalebone arch that sits at the top of the West Cliff. The town also has a strong literary tradition and has featured in literary works, television and cinema, perhaps most famously in Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula. The fishing port emerged during the Middle Ages and developed important herring and whaling fleets, and was (along with the nearby fishing village of Staithes) where Captain Cook learned seamanship. Its attraction as a tourist destination is enhanced by its proximity to the high ground of the North York Moors National Park, its Heritage Coastline and by its association with the horror novel Dracula. Jet and alum were mined locally. Whitby Jet, which was mined by the Romans and Victorians became fashionable during the 19th century. The Pavilion Theatre built in the 1870s in West Cliff hosts a range of events during the summer months. For over four decades the town has hosted the Whitby Folk Week, and since 1993 the bi-annual Whitby Gothic Weekend for members of the Goth subculture. "Whitby Now" is an annual live music event featuring local bands in the Pavilion which has taken place since 1991. Since 2008, the Bram Stoker Film Festival has taken place in October.
