Gorgeous cottage, everything you could want. Only niggle was the shower - found it almost impossible to get a comfortable temperature, was either freezing or scalding.
perfect holiday cottage,staff great,nice grounds and pool and 15 min walk into Whitby either along road or cinder path.Would recommend for a chilled holiday.
Great location but wifi poor couldnt get a connection the whole week we were there.
Super place nice an clean,would recomend to anyone
Lovely cottage in pretty and quiet location near Whitby. Very cosy and well decorated, with everything you need for a break, except towels. Interesting walk into town over a viaduct but take torch !
My partner and I took a short break here and I must say it was nothing short of perfect. It was cold and wet but it didn’t matter when all we was after was a relaxing break and that’s exactly what we had. Lovely.
Beautiful location had a lovely 4days away with family. Will definitely be returning.
Great location just outside Whitby. Cosy cottage with all the facilities we needed
This was our third visit to Cooks Cottage and we have already booked for next year. The cottage is ideally situated being only a mile from Whitby town centre.
We love it here every thing is so good .Staff are really excellent
Lovely location great little cottage clean n cosy, comfy bed, warmed by storage heaters in every room plus a log effect electric fire in lounge
