Very well equipped, lovely house with ample room in a beautiful setting, highly recommend for an enjoyable stay. The owner provide great communication and is very organised.

“Fabulous Christmas at Kauri”

Reviewed 30 Dec 2017

Had an absolutely amazing Christmas at the cottage , roomy beautiful Home from home in a brilliant location everything we needed were catered for and thoughtful gifts from the owner were superb will definitely be booking again

“Home from home”

Reviewed 9 Dec 2017

I can’t express enough how amazing Kauri Cottage was, it had everything we needed and more, only thing you need to take is towels, it was decorated beautifully and was happily surprised with all the Xmas decorations, what a lovely touch. The cottage is situated right next to the river with gorgeous views, 20 mins walk into Whitby but even in the cold it was a lovely stroll. I can’t wait to book again but maybe in the summer so I can make use of that lovely balcony.

Owner's reply: Thank you Louise for giving a review for Kauri Cottage. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your visit to Whitby and I hope your overseas visitors enjoyed it as well. The changing seasons offer so much variety of activities and I'm sure you'll enjoy it just as much if you decide to come again in the summer. Do get in touch if you're interested in booking next year. Best wishes Barbara

“Great Cottage in a beautiful setting”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2017

Kauri Cottage is a very nice cottage in a lovely tranquil setting. The cottage is very well equipped with everything your could need. We are a mixed group of friends, male and female, and there was plenty of room in the cottage for us all to spread and chill out if we needed to. We had a lovely walk to Robin Hoods Bay along the old rail track and then along the cliff path. Barbara, the owner, is very approachable and helpful. 2 of the guys met her face to face on arrival and said "she was smashing". We would certainly like to go back and would love to go in warmer weather to take advantage of the patio, balcony and seating by the river..

Owner's reply: Dear Gill I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. I met two of your friends and they were really helpful as I was struggling with putting the new mattress on the sofa bed! Good to hear the cottage met your expectations and that you managed a walk to Robin Hoods Bay. It would be lovely to welcome you all back in warmer weather. Best wishes Barbara

“Weekend away”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2017

I was really surprised when we got to Kauri cottage as I feel the photos don't do it justice. It was much bigger than expected!! The ground floor was such a lovely area and the kitchen had everything we needed! The first floor again was a surprise as the living room was bigger than we thought. We had 6 adults stay for 2 nights at at no point did we feel squashed or cramped! Plus nobody had to sit on the floor!! Added bonuses for us was having 3 toilets! The owner did mention a leak prior to our stay but it did not effect our stay at all!! The beds were all comfy and everyone had a good sleep. The view from the balcony was fantastic but sadly we missed the train going over the viaduct!! We used a taxi to get to Whitby which cost us approx £10. We would recommend to anyone wanting to stay at Kauri cottage!!

Owner's reply: Dear Meena thank you so much for your review and I'm very pleased to hear you enjoyed staying at Kauri Cottage. It is in an idyllic spot but is close to the buzz of Whitby town which as you say is a short taxi ride or a 15-20 min walk. I hope you come and stay again if you are coming to Whitby again. Once again thankyou for your lovely review. Best wishes Barbara

Reviewed 23 Jun 2017

We had a great weekend away. Easy access to Whitby. Approx £6 in a taxi. In a very peaceful setting.

Owner's reply: Hi Stephen Thank you for your review and good to hear you enjoyed your stay. It's sometimes nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of the Centre of Whitby but have easy access when you want it. We would love to,welcome you back again if you're coming to Whitby in the future. Best wishes Barbara

“Comfortable accommodation”

Reviewed 6 Jun 2017

We enjoyed our stay at Kauri cottage. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and well equipped. Barbara was quick to reply to our query about accommodating another person in our party - all good as the property has three bedrooms and a sofa bed in the lounge too. There are lovely views of the river and steam train from the cottage. Thank you

Owner's reply: Hello Sandra Thank you for your review and it's good to hear you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. I love seeing the steam trains going by on the opposite river bank. They make a great picture against the majestic viaduct. I hope we can welcome you back in the future. Best wishes Barbara
