It was Fantastic

Everything that we required was provivded Maplebeck is a fantastic place to stay, the location is out of this world, its right next to the river Esk and the ducks and geese come calling on the patio every morning to be fed. Its only a short walk over the viaduct into Whitby maybe 2 miles or so, but a very pleasant walk.

Fantastic location, wildlife everywhere, lovely cottage.

Maplebeck is a lovely cottage situated on the banks of the river Esk a mile from Whitby centre.Fully kitted out with everything you could need and great attention to detail, nice touches include masses of information on the area and binuculars. Excellent position for wildlife watching,every day we watched Herons, Cormorants & Dippers feeding on the river. Twice a solitary seal came floating past which was a pleasant suprise. Ducks, Geese and Herring Gulls came calling daily for their feed Excellent holiday, highly recommended

Peaceful river location

Beautiful property - well equipped, balcony looked out over the river, good for watching wildlife. Walked over the viaduct into the hustle and bustle of Whitby and good to return to our quiet picturesque holiday village.

Great location

Great location, right on the river bank. Plenty of birds to watch & even a seal! The cottage says it sleeps 5 but to be honest 2 adults, a 13 & 15 year old & a big dog filled the space. Comfy beds & generally good accommodation. There were a few little niggles though, the blind on the kitchen door, the kettle was faulty, no light on hob extractor, bathroom extractor & light above bathroom mirror not working, bathroom bin broken, rubbish shower & even batteries in remote control went!! All in all we had a great time & were very comfy here. Nice walk in to Whitby for us but steep hills for elderly, disabled or even prams/buggies. We didn't mind at all though.
