"Fisherman's cottage"

If you want an authentic fisherman's cottage in Whitby but with a contemporary feel, this is the place for you. The living area is compact-but that's the authenticity-every bit of the available space has been utilised. The three bedrooms have been dressed to a high standard with a compact en suite for one of the double bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs with an excellent shower and a separate bath. There is plenty of storage space in all of the bedrooms. We stayed as two parents with adult sons in their twenties, the three men are all 6' 2" or over and although you have to 'watch your head' in some areas, we loved the cottage. The kitchen is very well 'kitted out' for preparing your own food however being so central in Whitby, with such a vast range of tearooms, pubs serving food, fish and chip shops and restaurants I doubt that you will make full use of it. I would say don't use this cottage if you have elderly parents, mine wouldn't have managed any aspect of it however I know that my sons would have loved it when they were young (primary school aged) as much as did this weekend. It is ideally positioned, just down a little alley off Church Street, one of the main thoroughfares in the town. Despite this we found it to be very quiet. The position means that everything is immediately to hand. We bought a car parking ticket from the tourist information office and used the long stay car park behind their office and didn't have any trouble parking, occasionally you have to hang around for a few minutes but there was plenty of movement of cars when we visited. Had we been able to use the park and ride facility (Easter onward), we would have done.

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and the closeness of the old town centre with all its shops and restaurants. Eating out is never an issue but I like to make sure you have the comforts of home if you do decide to cook. The cottage is over 300 years old and, as such, steps and low ceilings have to be watched out for - I speak from experience. I hope to welcome you back in the future.

"Lovely quirky cottage, not really good for the less mobile"

We enjoyed our stay, but wish there had been more advice about the incline and steps to the cottage. We had our 87 year young Mother with us, fortunately she is very young minded, lively and determined, so we coped. Also I had to wash all the pans we used, they weren't very clean, and under the beds needed a clean! Despite this we thoroughly enjoyed our week, the cottage is on the right side of Whitby for us, and we would definitely return.

Thank you for your comments. I have contacted the cleaning agent who will check the kitchen pots and pans in future - however I do rely on the previous guests to leave the kitchen as it was when they arrived. I have also updated the websites cottage description to ensure that future guests understand the steps from the yard to the front door.
