Stayed here for five nights at end of July. Room immaculate and I've got ocd! Lovely view of abbey from window watching lovely sunsets. Continental breakfast was lovely and fresh with more than enough to set you up for the day. A nice tasty alternative to the usual full English. Owners were lovely and friendly. W definitely book here again...

We were at the top of the house but what a treat, we had a perfect view of the Abbey and the abbey ruins amazing. We totally chilled out during our stay and this lovely place in which we stayed helped a lot. loved the Breakfast in a basket what a great idea.

A gem of a B&B within easy treach of Whitby town centre, excellent rooms, spacious and well equipped. Breakfast is a treat, delivered to the room each morning, continental style but more than adequate. A pleasure to stay in the B&B and a bonus of off street parking.
