“Girls weekend”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2017

Had a fab time at Kauri Cottage in a lovely location right on the side of the River Esk it was clean and tidy and had everything needed for a self catering holiday would not hesitate to book again

Owner's reply: Hi Jackie so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Kauri Cottage and that it met your expectations. It is a lovely spot by the river to relax and still be close to the bustle of Whitby town centre. We'd love to welcome you back any time. 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

“Lovely location”

Reviewed 27 May 2017

The accommodation was very good with everything we could need The only slight bugbear was that the floorboards creaked and with two elderly guests, this caused disturbance at night

Owner's reply: Hello Ian thank you for your review and that you enjoyed your stay at Kauri Cottage. Thank you for raising the issue of squeaky floor boards outside the top floor bathroom. The floor was nailed down again when the new carpet was laid but it sounds as if we need to get it done again! Best wishes Barbara

Lovely property, ideally situated for Whitby. Decor and furnishings of a very good standard. Slight negative, creaky floorboards on the top floor, which ordinarily wouldn't be an issue, but as a family of 7, things were a little snug. Would love to go back in the summer in a smaller family group. Fab spot, picturesque, quiet, safe for kids.

Owner's reply: Many thanks for your review and your comments on the floorboards are noted. We have had the floorboards re-laid once but it seems they may need further work - thank you for bringing this to our attention. We hope to welcome you back to the cottage in the near future. Kind regards - Martin and Julie

“Better than we had hoped”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2016

A perfect base for Whitby and the surrounding areas in a location much nicer than we had expected. Helpful owners with good info provided before our stay. I would not hesitate to book this property again.

Owner's reply: Thanks Patrick for your review - glad you and your friends had a great weekend and all was to your satisfaction. See you again soon !! Kind regards - Martin and Julie


Reviewed 23 Jul 2016

Amazing place and setting. We had a fabulous time here. My 2 grandsons loved the green areas and open space. We were lucky with the weather 20+ each day we were there. The walk into town, especially with children takes 25-30 mins but it is very pleasant and a taxi ride back is £6.00. The house had everything needed and was so spacious for the 5/6 of us . Hoping to get back again real soon.

Owner's reply: Many thanks Linda for posting a review for us - sounds like the two little ones had a great time (and hopefully the adults too!!). The weather too of course does provide an added bonus !! Hope to see you again soon !! Kind regards - Martin and Julie

“Well equipped cottage in a lovely setting”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2016

Lovely peaceful and picturesque setting, well equipped and very clean cottage. Thank you for a lovely stay

Owner's reply: Many thanks Michelle for your comments - glad you and your family were happy with the cottage and the facilities we provide. We hope you are able to visit us again in the future. Kind regards - Martin and Julie

“A superb cottage prefectly positioned on the estate”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2013

A great location with views of the river Esk and the Larpool Viaduct which I could sit and look at all day. All enhanced by lots of birdlife and the occasional steam train passing by across the river. The cottage is well furnished and ideal for a family group who live at a distance from each other to meet up and relax together.

Owner's reply: We are delighted you had a good holiday at our Cottage and glad you had time to appreciate its location (which we think is great too!). The steam trains passing and the wildlife are certainly very relaxing and most children enjoy feeding the ducks. We hope you will be able to visit us again soon and we thank you for taking the time to do a review for us. Kind regards - Martin and Julie

“lovelly cottage great location”

Reviewed 7 May 2012

just returned from kauri cottage, really lovelly cottage and in a great location right next to the river and a bonus that we could watch the steam trains going in and out of whitby. really well equiped, everything we needed and only a 20 minute walk into town ( and a 5 pound taxi ride back after a couple of pints), everyone had a great time and loved the house and would recomend it to anyone..

Owner's reply: Hi Garry Thank you for writing a reviewq on Trip Advisor and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay there. Any recommendations to friends would be greatly appreciated. Regards Barbara
