The cottage was perfectly equipped - even down to the detail of providing a sewing kit. In every aspect, it exceeded our expectations.

Toilet rolls. Perhaps not the usual way to begin a review of a rented property, but in the case of Fossil Cottage in Whitby, very pertinent. I’m sure everybody has struggled with a new toilet roll, trying to tear that first sheet free and ending up with six feet of half-freed, torn sheets while the other half stays resolutely gummed. At Fossil Cottage, someone had thoughtfully done the hard work for us, and tucked the first sheet into the cardboard centre tube. This is just one small example of the care and consideration that had gone into preparing the cottage for us. The place was spotlessly clean and blissfully warm as we arrived on a cold, late November day. The Welcome Pack contained everything we needed for a snack, cup of tea, round of toast or glass of wine. I can’t overstate how cosy this little place is; particularly the kitchen. And the lounge with its easy-to-light wood burning stove (everything, down to the matches, was provided). It’s quiet too, in November anyway. Just 2 minute’s walk from bustling Church Street, few pedestrians and even fewer cars pass by to disturb your tranquillity. OK, it doesn’t have a sea view – if it did you would be paying considerably more. BUT, pop outside and, within 20 feet, you are at the top of steps leading down to the beach, and have a lovely aspect of the harbour. To end, Fossil Cottage is a little gem, and many thanks to Yorkshire Coastal Cottages for recommending that it would meet the needs of four adults and a well behaved dog. In fact, it far exceeded our expectations.
