I have been so pleased with Yorkshire Coastal Cottages since they have promoted and cared for my property since 2014.

The bookings are consistently high, with a huge amount of repeat business from holidaymakers who look for a discerning type of property.

The Yorkshire Coastal Cottages’ management, including the receptionists to the housekeeping, gardening and back-up with service engineers, are matchless . They are the best in Yorkshire in my opinion.”

Guest satisfaction

This is crucially important; our housekeeping teams and maintenance people work to high standards, with their work checked before guests arrive.

We ensure cottages are guest-ready and provide household items so the kitchen is fully functional for added convenience, so there’s less for guests to pack.  And if a guest is going to be late, we pop in and put the lamps on, so they don’t arrive to a dark house.    We even have spare appliances such as ovens, fridges and freezers, just in case of emergencies.

It’s the attention to details that makes us special – and makes guests keep booking with us and coming back to your cottage.


I am delighted with the services provided by Yorkshire Coastal Cottages, which are outstanding. They are consistently efficient and the standard of care towards both owners and guests is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble and you can always rely on a quick response to any queries. Their website and strategies for attracting bookings are extremely effective and I am consequently very pleased with the level of bookings for my property.  Certainly a stress-free experience.

Just One Company Handling Every Aspect Of Your Holiday Cottage, Working To Exacting Standards


I was very reluctant to rent out my property as it really is our family home. I need not have worried as the team at Yorkshire Coastal Cottages have looked after the Blue House better than I think we could have done ‘


Owner, Blue House, Whitby


Our exemplary standards and attention to detail have resulted in our being winners of several national and international awards, which endorse our desire – and reputation – for doing the very best.

Protection – and Prompt Payment 

We also operate an in-house Holiday Protections Scheme, which once the deposit is paid, if the guest has to cancel, means you are paid in full; terms apply.

Importantly, unlike many other holiday cottage companies, we pay you the same month we are paid by the guests.  Many companies hold payments until the end of the month that guests have stayed.  However with many people booking sometimes a year in advance, rather than retain these payments, we pay you straight away, which is obviously helpful for cash flow.


Whitby office, local staff – and no remote call centres!

Our office in Whitby enjoys a high level of footfall and provides a superb base to showcase properties, receive visitors and hand out keys.

Our staff are local and know the area well, so can assist guests – we offer a free concierge service with advice and recommendations from what to see and do, to planning a full day out for all the family.

We answer calls promptly – we don’t use call centres nor have elaborate channels of button pressing that people have to navigate to speak to us!  Just a team of helpful, professional and highly trained staff – who know every cottage, first-hand.


Thank you for the wonderful service we have received since putting our holiday cottage at Sandsend, in the hands of Yorkshire Coastal Cottages. The bookings have increased since you have been handling them, which can only be an added bonus for us.
