“Picturesque location for a family holiday”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2013

The location of Biffins Berth is really superb, in a group of cottages on the lower level set in a well managed green space close to the river Esk, railway line, & viaduct. Although within a mile of Whitby, it's very peaceful with a rural feel. You can walk up onto the viaduct and into Whitby along a track, or to Ruswarp along a field path.On the site there is a children's playground, small indoor swimming pool, laundry room with washers, tumble dryers and ironing facilities. The cottage itself is very small but quite well laid out with a comfortable sitting and dining area. The kitchen is really too small so lacking in storage space and worktops, so we had to store some of our food packets eg. cereals in the corner of the living room. There were a few things missing which we had expected to be there, a teapot, fruit/veg knife, fruit/salad bowl, and not enough small plates for 4 people. The large number of glasses could have been reduced to give more space in the cupboards. The main bedroom also lacks storage space for clothes so we found ourselves living out of our case. The children's bedroom did have a chest of drawers and cupboard. The bathroom could do with a revamp as it did not have a shower apart from a plastic one which had to be attached to the bathtaps, and the sealant at the edge of the bath was a strip of wood which was starting to rot. We had to provide our own towels & bathmat. In spite of these minor problems we had a great holiday with our grandchildren - there was plenty of space for them to play out and meet other children, they enjoyed the swimming pool and watching the wildlife on the river and the steam trains passing. It was a convenient location for the short drive or walk into Whitby, a drive to Danby Lodge near Lealholm where there are activities for children and a museum and play area. One highlight was canoeing which is close by at Ruswarp. The people who run that are very friendly & helpful. I would definitely recommend this location and site for a holiday for young families. We would probably go back but would prefer a slightly larger cottage, still on the lower level by the river.
