Just returned from a lovely stay in this cottage. It’s a great location tucked away by the Abbey Steps. The cottage was well equipped, very clean and had a lovely cosy decor. No hesitations in recommending it to others.

Cuddy is decorated to a high standard and the kitchen/dining area was fab. Bigger than it seems on the photos. Lounge was a cosy and relaxing space too. Tucked away from the crowded streets, it was easy to forget the very busy 199 steps were literally 10 paces from the front door. Stayed late October coinciding with the build up to Goth weekend and found it was a perfect location to explore our beloved Whitby. Owners have great advice and instructions for unloading and parking in the winding cobbled streets, so take heed of this as it comes in very handy. We couldn't fault their hospitality or communication, which came as a breath of fresh air after us being left disappointed by another lettings company when our original booking was cancelled at very short notice. These guys really helped us out when in a pickle, and we will keep this kindness in mind when planning our future Whitby stays. The cottage was advertised with no wi-fi so we were very pleasantly surprised to find it was provided as an unexpected bonus upon our arrival. Thanks again for a brilliant and much needed break guys. Very happy customers :)

We found the cottage very clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay again. Perfect location at the bottom of the Abbey steps in the old part of Whitby town. Lovely outdoor space to sit at by the front door.

Four of us stayed at the cottage for 2 nights. What a lovely, comfortable, quaint cottage for a weekend away. The location is perfect, right at the bottom of the 199 steps, lots of pubs, cafes, restaurants and lovely walks nearby. We used the Church Street car park for the weekend which was just a short walk from the cottage. Mandy/Jonathon were very prompt with replies to any questions we had and were very obliging for an early get in and late departure. Highly recommended.

Lovely little cottage. Great communication from the owners from the outset. They even let us know that we could arrive early as the cottage was vacant. Described as being at the bottom of the 199 steps, it couldn’t be closer! It’s hidden In a little courtyard but easy to find. A quirky little place over 3 floors, and newly tastefully decorated. Really comfy king size bed and great twin room. Everything you need is provided including some tea coffee and biscuits for when you arrive. Shower was good and some towels provided despite saying they would not be available because of COVID There was a seagull that came and knocked on the window which was entertaining! We parked at the Wharf Car Park and walked across which only took 5-10 mins. Paid upfront for 2 day permit in the Tourist Office and then paid on phone app for the rest. Google Scarborough Parking for info on Council carparks. Lovely weekend. Would come again

Great location at the bottom of the 199 steps in the old town. Boiler needed resetting but after that it was lovely and warm in the house. Plenty to do in Whitby and nearby Runswick and Robin Hood’s Bay, great restaurants and pubs. All venues very well set up re Covid contact tracing, social distancing etc. Weekend busy with tourists but week days were fine. Whitby is great place to visit at any time of year
