"Excellent, clean, home from home"

Stayed here for two nights with my husband . The cottage has everything you need, it was a very cold and rainy weekend but coming back to the warm cottage was great. Very well situated for local amenities. Also went to Scarborough which was about half an hour away. Hopefully will stay here again. I have told all family and friends and work colleagues about this cottage.

Dear Guests

Thank you for choosing Anstis Cottage for your stay in Whitby and for your comments.
