Enclosed front and rear garden. Lovely back garden - suntrap with new composite decking & large table & chairs for al fresco dining. Wifi. Pets accepted. -up to 2 small dogs

Excellent location. House as described, thoughtfully presented & very well equipped. Excellent shower. Lovely welcome hamper which was an unexpected surprise, thank you. Sky tv a great extra, thank you. Never had this in a cottage before. Whitby is a lovely town. Lots of history and exploring to do. We loved the piers. We were lucky with the weather. Lots of dog walks very close by. We were also lucky enough to see the Tour of Britain cycle race come down our street :) We walked along river Esk a lot. We walked to Larpool viaduct. Lots of birds to see including a kingfisher. Plenty of places to visit close by. We went to Robin Hoods Bay, Goathland and Thornton Le Dale. Lots of lovely independent shops in Whitby which was lovely to see. Our bins were emptied on Wednesday morning very early on so this was a good thing too. We know we can trust Sykes listings as have used several times before.

property position very good , housekeeping very poor , the ceramic hob was in a very poor condition my wife spent 30 mins cleaning it , the 2 frying pans had to be cleaned underneath to prevent further damage to hob ,the large utensils in the yellow boot next to hob were all caked in grease all had to be washed before use ,one of my dogs was shedding hair we found the dyson to use it was so clodded up it wouldnt start until it was emptied , the tv unit had not been dusted in ages not value for money compared with previous property near Ruswarp

Lovely house to stay in for the week. Perfect location and very homely. We had everything we needed and more. The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise and was very generous, thank you. The garden was a great sun trap and we appreciated the nice outdoor furniture on sunny afternoons. We will definitely be staying again in the future.
Mrs Bacon
We had a lovely stay at Over Esk. The cottage was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The welcome pack was a lovely treat and even had doggy chews for our little dog. We would definitely stay again .
Mrs Payne
Great location within easy walking distance of Whitby just a short 10 -15 minutes walk, would be quicker if we didnt have a couple of miniature dachshunds in toe with little legs. Over Esk was exceptionally clean with a lovely welcome pack on arrival, even catered for the dogs with treats and dog toys. Great addition was the SKY TV, I dont think we've ever been anywhere where you can catch up on your soaps on the TV and are not scrambling for something to watch of an evening when you want to relax. Garden is an added bonus and sun trap, with nice furniture to relax in. Every little detail catered for, we will definately be back. Only let down was the small double bed when you are used to a King size.
Mrs West
The owners have done everything to ensure a relaxed and comfortable holiday. Such a warm house, we hardly had the heating on at all for the week. The hamper was fantastic. Very safe enclosed garden. The only issue was parking as it was chaotic with residents of the flats across the main road parking in dangerous places and blocking access, but this is outside the control of the owners. Everything about the cottage was otherwise perfect.
Mrs Edgar
This is a very nice house & we'd stay again. One small thing was there was no tv in the main bedroom. Other than that it's a very well equipped and comfortable property.
Mrs Hollis
They said there was a washer dryer in the welcome book, there wasn't. Also said information on refuses & recycling days for bins available on back of main kitchen cupboard door not there, found out during our stay that it was refuse week after the they had emptied the bins to late for bin to be put out, but wouldn't have been able to put bin out as bin was absolutely full off past people's rubbish.
Mr Ariss
Well presented, clean cottage with all the amenities needed for a great stay. We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival with some unexpected treats left for both us and our dog which was a lovely surprise. The cottage was very dog friendly with a lovely enclosed back garden and blankets to make her feel warm and cosy. The location was perfect for us with pubs and shops a short walk away with roadside parking easily available outside the cottage. A real gem, would definitely stay here again :)
Mr Oxley
This cottage was rated at 3 ticks we believe that has it has been refurbished it should be 4 ticks , it exceeded our expectations and was excellent . It’s ideally located only 10 minutes walk into town , a good enclosed garden perfect for dog owners and a nice decked area for outdoor eating. Clean and well presented .
Mr Davies
No where to hang outdoor coats,no where to put shoes after being out, not enough wardrobe space, could do with a lamp in the living room,not worth the money we paid
Mrs Ward
Had a wonderful stay at the cottage. Very comfortable and clean with the added bonus of car parking outside. Great position to enjoy Whitby with just a few minutes walk to town centre and all the bars and restaurants.
