‘Visited here last Monday for 2 nights as a Christmas treat off our mum. The location was perfect with only a 5 minute walk down the lane to the centre. The house was perfect and felt so homely. There wasnt anything that the landlords hadnt missed. The welcome pack, wine and flowers were a lovely gesture, and the Christmas tree an added bonus which we wasnt expecting!The views were lovely too with the boat yard lit up at night just stunning! Overall for our first visit to Whitby was just perfect and definitely will be back!’

‘We stayed here at the weekend on a work weekend away trip and we thoroughly enjoyed it! I loved the extra touches when we arrived of wine, bread, milk, cheese and flowers. These were just a added bonus. The cottage was so homely and had everything you could want or need. I loved the decor and little touches which added an extra homely feel to it. Location wise was perfect too, 5 minute walk to the town centre but next to the harbour. The view was amazing from the balcony and in the far view of the abbey. Just lovely! My favourite part was opening the blinds in the morning and the sun shinning though to a beautiful view! Just stunning!’

‘Having visited Whitby as a family holiday destination many times previously, we decided to visit again as six of us (three couples) for a winter holiday. When we arrived at the cottage it was absolutely beautifully decorated throughout, and there was more than enough space for us all. A very good sized kitchen with everything we needed, as well as a little welcome pack which was lovely - wine, cheese, milk - everything we needed to make us feel welcome at Mariner's Rest. The master bedroom is gorgeous, with an amazing balcony overlooking the harbour and with gorgeous views over the town. The other bedrooms are great sizes - one double, one with two singles and another single bedroom. The living room is also a great size, enough seating for six people around the electric fire for cosy nights in front of the television. There's a good sized dining table - so good we managed to eat a whole Christmas dinner with all the trimmings around it as we won't all be spending Christmas together this year. Outside is a great area too, again overlooking the boats in the harbour. Admittedly we didn't spend too much time there as it was very cold - but in the summer it would be a perfect area for alfresco dining. To the front of the house there is two car parking spaces - something we have struggled with in the majority of other holiday cottages we have stayed in. Most of Whitby is on road parking and it can be hit and miss if you don't get there at the right time - so having these two spaces at the front of the house was very convenient for us. The house itself provided everything, possibly more than we could have asked for in a holiday home. It is a shame that the experience was somewhat scuppered on the last night of our holiday. Obviously the last night of anyones holiday is a busy one - especially when the check out time is quite early in comparison to other cottages we have stayed in (10am). With six adults packing a weeks worth of things, as well as trying to cook dinner for six - there was a knock at the door and it was the owner of the property. She turned up at about 7pm to ask if she could come in to the house with the cleaner at 9.30 instead of 10am, which is something a phone call would have been sufficient for, but actually it almost felt like she was looking to see if we had done anything wrong. I can totally understand that an owner of a property might want to meet the people staying in their house, but I would probably recommend doing that at the start of someones holiday rather than the night before they leave at tea time. It made us all feel quite awkward and it definitely put a negative spin on the holiday at the last minute. There was a comment made about my dog too, who was sat on a blanket that we had bought to put on one area of the sofa. In the holiday listing the property was listed as dog friendly, but when you arrive at the cottage there are 'rules' about where your dog can and can't go. I respect that people may not allow their dogs on the furniture, but as a dog who is used to being allowed everywhere in a house we bought a blanket so there was no contact with the furniture. I didn't appreciate the owner telling my dog off, especially when the rules aren't mentioned in the advertisement for the house. There were a few negative comments made about other guests who had stayed previously, which almost made us feel like she would be saying negative things about us to the next guests. Overall, it's a shame but we wouldn't stay in the house again as we were made to feel so uncomfortable on the last night of our holiday.’

‘This is our 2nd time staying at Mariner's Rest & definitely won't be the last. The house is a home from home, so clean & cosy. The welcome pack was much appreciated after a long journey. The house is ideally situated in Whitby, it's in a quieter part but only 10 minute walk to the centre of Whitby. Has parking for 2 cars which is a big bonus as parking is at a premium in Whitby-the on road parking spaces soon fill up & other areas operate a disc parking system. The steam trains going past the house is a real bonus-the month we stayed the 1st one went past about 9.45am & last was about 5.30pm. The time table changes though. Visited Falling Foss waterfall, amazing little tearoom in middle of woods, dogs welcome-steep path & definitely sensible shoes should be worn. Sandsend beach & beach café is well worth a visit, dogs welcome in outside area. Whitby is full of lovely places to eat-especially fish & chips. Will definitely be back very soon.’

‘An amazing place to stay, it was easy to find and it had everything you could need. It was a 5 minute walk to the supermarket and not much longer into town. The house was beautiful, the bedrooms were all good sizes and we never had any issues with space in the living area as they have two large sofas and 2 large comfy chairs. Would recommend to anyone.’

‘A lovely house with everything a large family group could need. The furnishings were excellent even though this was a dog friendly property, really clean and with the joy of steam trains outside the door! The boys loved dashing out to wave at each one and the lovely people who waved back. I'd recommend this to everyone and would happy to come back. An added bonus in Whitby was parking for up to three cars!’

‘In a great location, only a short walk to town, and in easy reach of all facilities and access to walks etc. There was a really good selection of pubs/restaurants - we were spoilt for choice! The cottage owner was available if we needed anything (which we didn't). It was an ideal cottage for families, it was very warm cosy and comfortable.’

‘The location is great for access to and from Whitby. The town centre was a 10 min walk and all amenities are near by. Says parking for 2 but we easily got 3 cars on the front.... a massive plus for Whitby. If you have kids or you're an enthusiast of trains and boats, all you need to do is look out of the window and enjoy steam trains passing / stopping a few feet from the house during the day. Also a boat yard at the other side of the tracks, so my 3 year old was in his element!’

‘The property was extremely well presented and equipped. We had a warm welcome from the owner and much appreciated welcome pack. The location was ideal for exploring Whitby on foot (literally 5 a minute walk away), it is adjacent to the railway line but this caused absolutely no inconvenience. We wouldn't hesitate to return. It was nice to have dedicated off road parking.’
