Lovely Cottage
Stayed for 3 nights. The location is excellent, has everything in the cottage that I needed. We had fish and chips on the first night was great to see salt and vinegar already at the property. I was a bit worried about the parking situation but I needn’t have been, it was easy to unload the car then drive and park at the main car park. Our first time in Whitby-we will def return, thought it was fab.

Cockle cottage
Position of cottage is excellent The access yard is off putting dirty bins cigarette ends Cottage was not cleaned to extra covid requirements The bed linen was very tired i.e not crisp cotton sheets Wardrobe in twin room doors do not work a mixed selection of broken hangers do not look good Off putting to locate the fridge in a cupboard with mops and brushes Kitchen was not well equipped with exposed pipes under boiler Just a bit of attention to detail would alter our opinion of Cockle cottage The character and position in beautiful Whitby of Cockle cottage was spoiled by these points
