Home from home

We arrived at the property in the evening and it was a lovely surprise to see the welcome pack where we could have a cuppa and cake after our journey. The cottage is set in a lovely complex near river esk and with views of the viaduct and woodland. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated a lot of effort has been made to get everything to compliment each other. The whole cottage was well equipped for our stay it really was a home from home. We enjoyed the walk into Whitby over the viaduct, it has spectacular views! We really enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for kind comments. the Wi fi signal is weak which reflects the area, it may involve finding the right spot in the cottage for your device. The on site office staff are always willing to help with such problems.
