Cliffords Party
Had a great week in Whitby; Dovecote Cottage is spacious, plenty of storage and we loved the garden - it's a good base for exploring. We have been to Whitby beach, the Captain Cook Museum and Scarborough. We also visited Sandsend. We can recommend Silver Street Fisheries for the fish and chips plus the Forge at Aislaby for some amazing pub food! All the family have enjoyed our holiday.

Good location. Cottage a great size and well equipped. We enjoyed the steam train ride to Goathland and visiting Scarborough and Filey.
Gaynor Party
There is a fantastic amount of living space for a large family; we were impressed by the cafe at Ruswarp, next to the river. We had both coffee and dinner, both of which were fantastic. We have been very impressed with Yorkshire Coastal Cottages and the welcome pack was lovely. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.
