Perfect little cottage in a central location.

Lovely little cottage clise to everything you need. Well equipped and right at the bottom of the 199 steps. Provably not for the elderly or infirm due to the steep steps but lovely in every other way. Nearest pub about 50 yards the Duke of York friendly staff and excellent food. Would have no hesitation in returning to this cottage for another holiday.

Lovely central but NOISY

Lovely little cottage, right in the middle of the old part of Whitby, at the bottom of the famous 199 steps. Unfortunately this meant that we were woken every morning either by people shouting, dust carts (almost every day for some reason) or delivery vans struggling to get through the very narrow street and also noisy till quite late in the evening with people out and about enjoying the nearby pubs, and the Church bells every 15 minutes. The streets are so narrow that people taking photos lean against the front window and you can touch the dust carts from the first floor window! If that's not a problem, then the cottage was lovely, well equipped with all you could need. It is small, but it is an old grade 2 listed fisherman's cottage. Three flights of narrow twisting tricky staircases. Tastefully decorated and a great base to explore Whitby. Not the cleanest of accommodation we have stayed in. Welcome pack on arrival - which was a nice touch. Shame that the only view over Whitby was out of the bathroom window.
