Whalebone Cottage

Whalebone Cottage will transport guests back to yesteryear with its exposed timber beams, authentic fireplace and carefully-selected décor which retain the character of the stone-built barn.

The four-bedroom rural cottage combines traditional character with modern amenities throughout the property which lies on a working farm in Whitby, in the North York Moors.

The four light and airy bedrooms include two doubles and two twins, with sloped ceilings. The bathrooms are very modern and allow space for the eight guests, with bath and shower over. The dining area lies in the kitchen which is full of modern amenities and features exposed timber beams. The spacious sitting room invites relaxation with its comfortable lounges and electric living flame fire housed in an authentic stone fireplace.

Within the sitting room, guests are provided with TV, DVD, radio and cassette player. The pet-friendly property’s amenities also include oil central heating, off-road parking, laundry facilities and equipment for young children. A lawned garden area with furniture captures the summer sun as well as gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside. This is an ideal location in which to enjoy a glass of wine, a meal or a compelling work of fiction.

Whalebone Cottage is within walking distance of the village of Whitby, with its shops and pub, and is within easy reach of attractions such as safe, sandy beaches, the charming harbour, the famous Abbey as well as Robin Hood’s Bay and Scarborough.

Reviews

The Cottage was far above the standard we were expecting and the farmers wife was very friendly and welcoming. Lambing was taking place while we were there and it was lovely to go to the barn and see the new born lambs. All told we had an excellent holiday.

Mrs Bews

The property has a large garden, so it is very nice for the children to play in.

Mr Fletcher

If I had a weeks holiday free this year I would return for a week instead of the weekend. We had a brilliant break made all the better by the standard of the accommodation and friendliness of our hosts.

Mrs Bennett

The cottage was far better than we imagined. Both families enjoyed their break and we would recommend it to anyone. The cottage owners were friendly, even the cat.

Mrs White

The owners of the cottage made us feel very welcome.

Mrs Hodges

Everything !!!! really warm welcome and lovely people who own the cottage. It has been our second year here and will definitely be going back a third time.

Mr & Mrs Goodwin

Whalebone Cottage is a lovely property with a gated drive.
Was excellent for the dogs with a small grass area with the cottage. But access to larger field for quick stroll, lots of longer walks available. There is an excellent pub just up the road.
The standard of the property is excellent and the location has excellent views, overall would recommend to anyone.

Mrs Mitchell

We enjoyed every part of our holiday and the cottage was better than we had ever expected. The owners were very helpful and nice, they let the children go and see all the farm animals, which they loved. The owners left us wine and biscuits for our arrival as a hello greeting. We would definitely return. The view was gorgeous.

Miss Whymark

Lovely spacious cottage in superb location.

Mr Cantrell

The location was fantastic and the size of the accommodation was exceeded.

Mr Clark

Very spacious, well equipped cottage with beautiful views.

Mrs Horsfall

What a beautiful cottage! The location is fantastic, the fantastic views, the friendliness of the owners. Would highly recommend to anybody.

Mr Topham

Very impressed with cottage and its proximity to coast and moors. Found owners very welcoming and helpful. Our grandson aged 2 1/2 was very taken with the sheep and enjoyed watching the farmer working. 'Magpie Fish Shop' in Whitby is really worth a visit.

Mrs Feary

Excellent position for touring the area. Child friendly cottage and surroundings.
Very nice and friendly owners.

Mr Bowmaster

Good spacious property. Lovely views of Whitby.

Mrs Hillam

The welcome from the owner and the privacy afforded even though they were close at hand. From our arrival onwards the holiday was excellent, the atmosphere of the farm was very warm and welcoming. The setting is beautiful and it is amazingly quiet when you consider the proximity of the camp site and the road. I would both recommend Whalebone Cottage and book again.

Miss Murton

Very quiet nice location. Cottage was well equipped, very homely and there was a nice welcome from the owners.

Mrs Thornton

It was very very nice, the owners were VERY friendly people and made us welcome. We will definitely be returning, maybe later in the year!

Mrs Gosling

The setting was quiet and picturesque and very near local attractions. The cottage was homely and very reasonable for accommodating up to eight people. The landlords were very helpful and hospitable. I would definitely come again.

Mrs Furnley

Staying on a working farm, the views were spectacular. No problems being so close to a camp site.

Mr Darcy

The cottage was very comfortable and the owners were very friendly and helpful.

Ms Trew

The views of the surrounding countryside were fantastic. The cottage was exceptionally clean. We would definitely use this cottage again.

Mrs Crichton

The cottage was pleasant; it was in walking distance to the shops, pub, main town, on a bus route! There was plenty of areas to go walking - our main interest in the holiday. We really enjoyed the walk on the cinder pathway, well worth the effort.

Mr Booth

The area was wonderful and the accommodation was great.

Mr Lee

This was our first experience using Sykes and it was brilliant. We had a party of eight and there was enough room all round in the cottage.

Mr Wright

This was an ideal property, especially if you have young children. Very well laid out, with a nice secure front garden. It is really spacious and superbly located, with lovely far stretching views. We adopted two very friendly cats.

Mr Stansfield

There were wonderful views from Whalebone Cottage, easy access to Whitby and the moors. Lovely place to stay. We have stayed here before and will book again.

Mr Petts

Very friendly way that we were dealt with by the owners. The cottage was just as described. We loved our stay. A lovely setting and lovely people!

Mr Conroy

Relaxing environment, lovely house, warm welcome.

Mrs Thompson

Was absolutely a home from home, large sitting room kitchen had everything we needed and the bedrooms were ample. All in all, a brilliant place to stay and only a 20 minute walk into Whitby; would totally recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a quiet place to stay and close to all the charm of Whitby itself. Plus, the owners are lovely and friendly.

Mrs Baxter

The cottage was in an ideal spot for visiting nearby villages and towns. The Cottage was large but cosy and had everything we could need. Very friendly owners completed a pretty perfect holiday. Couldn't have asked for more.

Ms Leigh

I loved the location, it was very quiet and very near to every where we wanted to go. The cottage was very comfortable and the owner was so kind and friendly.

Mrs Capes

It was very spacious and spotless clean. Great location, quiet but close to the towns and local amenities.

Mr Jones

It was a very nice cottage and well equipped for the amount of people. The windows in the bedroom were great to look at the clear night sky and good information was given for walks and local taxis.

Miss Witheford

Whalebone Cottage is a lovely cottage; very suitable for our requirements and Whitby is simply a delightful place to have a holiday; it is the jewel of the East Coast. This was our second stay at Whalebone Cottage and we have already booked for 2016.

Mrs Edwards

We had a great time in Whitby. The holiday cottage is really spacious for up to 8 people and having 2 showers was a bonus as there were 7 of us. The children loved the garden area and the views from the cottage were stunning. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone going to Whitby on holiday.

Mr Bury

Whalebone Cottage is peaceful and very spacious. Gorgeous in every way and suitable for everyone that joined us there!

Mrs Lambert

A very well located and lovely clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage. It was perfect for a family break.

Mrs Alexander

We had a wonderful week in this cottage.It felt like home the minute we arrived, and we were all sad to leave.The location is handy for the entire area, with Whitby on the doorstep, Robin Hoods Bay, Sandsend, Runswick Bay and Staithes just a short trip away, and a variety of inland destinations under an hour away (Nunnington Hall a must). Sainsbury's near by made self catering easy. The place was quiet but not remote or isolated.The cottage was great value for money, and we would certainly return.

Mr Hawley

Fantastic cottage, third time here.

Whalebone cottage is a charming large cottage, with 4 large bedrooms it sleeps 8 people comfortably. It is a very clean and tidy cottage. The sitting room is of generous size and there is a well stocked kitchen with dining area, this cottage also boasts 2 well sized bathrooms...one which just has a shower in. The outside garden is gated off for your own garden and parking for 2 cars. The views from the house are breathtaking with views across the Esk valley. You can also watch the comings and goings of the camping and caravan site which the cottage owners own...great for people watching!! The cottage is situated on a working farm which farms sheep...the kids love watching the sheep coming into the farm yard to be weighed. The cottage is about a mile away from whitby harbour...and if you walk there it's down hill all the way...just hop in a taxi for the return uphill journey...the taxi is very reasonable back there. The owners are very very friendly and extremely helpful...they didn't even mind us sitting in their garden when the sun left our garden. We have just returned to the cottage for our 3rd holiday and it won't be our last. The cottage is a great base for all the tourist attractions like Robinhoods bay, staithes and Scarborough. I would defiantly recommend this cottage. Thank you for a great holiday.

lovely accommodation & convenient location

Whalebone Cottage was a lovely base for exploring Whitby and the surrounding areas. The cottage was clean and comfortable. The only drawback was the slightly small dining area when a group of us wanted to cook/eat together. Otherwise, a perfect base for a lovely few days.

Fantastic

We stayed at Whalebone Cottage on the first weekend in May to celebrate a couple of birthdays within the group and we will definately be going back. The cottage itself has a great homely feeling with amazing views and we were only a couple of minutes drive from Whitby. The owner is a lovely women who looked after us well providing information on local taxis, restaurants etc, even her dog made friends with ours!

The only negative I have with our weekend is that it ended too soon but we will definately be staying there again and I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone.

Frank T

Nice Stay in Whalebone cottage

Very comfortable stay cottage was very clean well presented and ample room for the eight of us.

Location is very central to North Yorkshire tourist attractions.

Would stay there again.

A TripAdvisor Member

Very relaxing, superb accommodation area and the scenery was excellent.

Mr Leeming

Very clean and spacious and friendly owners.

Mrs Hampshire

Spacious accommodation and we were left to get on with it.

Mr Maund

The cottage was excellent from all aspects - accommodation, location and hospitality. We had a party of 12 with ages varying from 14-80. There was something for everyone...

Mrs Smith

The cottage was great and we all had an excellent time. The children loved staying on a farm and particularly liked the trampoline and the kittens! Whitby, according to the children, was excellent because it has beach huts, yummy ice cream, a lift to the beach that was like a Tardis and rocks on the beach that you could climb on. The best holiday ever!

Ms Cross

The surrounding landscape was beautiful and very peaceful. Everyone enjoyed the use of the shared trampoline!

Mrs Szuster

The house was accesible to beautiful areas, both inland and coast. We were able to sit outside and drink in the beauty of the countryside amidst a working farm environment. Cycle tracks started just outside our door, which were well used all week. The dogs (two) were able to run outside in the garden with the grandchildren and we knew they would all be safe. The added bonus of the two kittens from the farmhouse taking up residence with us for the week just made the holiday. As you can see we were very pleased with our stay at Whalebone cottage.

Mrs Rowe

Excellent property - it was like home from home. I would recommend this cottage to anyone and will be visiting again.

Miss Clarke

The standard of the accommodation did not disappoint us and we all had a great break. The farm, despite being on a main road and a working sheep farm in the middle of lambing, was tranquil and made for a very pleasant break. The area is much better out of season when there are fewer people around. The owners was very pleasant and we were not aware of everyone else's presence when we were at the farm. She was very welcoming to the children. There was nothing we did not like about our break - even the weather was excellent for February!

Mrs Atherton

A good location, close enough to enjoy Whitby for a night out & a short drive to either the north Yorks Forest or other coastal resorts.

Ms Andrews

Fantastic location with scenic views but yet only two minutes drive into the centre of Whitby. Lots of idyllic places to visit nearby.

Mr & Mrs Barnett

Absolutely loved our holiday. All of us thoroughly enjoyed staying at Whalebone Cottage. Owners very helpful and friendly - can't wait to return!

Ms Cross

Whalebone cottage was an excellant base for a holiday in the North Yorkshire Moors and coast. The cottage was excellent, very clean, well decorated and furnished. Good views over the moors and Whitby Abbey. The owner made us feel most welcome and was extremely helpful.

Mr Tregaskes

The cottage was in a convenient but peaceful location with ample parking, and was very clean. There was a plentiful supply of crockery, equipment, towels and a warm welcome from the owner. Altogether a good value for money holiday.

Mrs Lockwood

Owner very helpful, great people to meet. Grandchildren loved holding baby lambs.

Mr & Mrs Morris

The property was warm and cosy, yet large enough to accommodate 2 families (8 of us) very comfortably. We had a very happy time at Whalebone Cottage and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Mrs Pritchard

Lovely location. In the cottage it was like walking into your own home as you felt so comfy. The family who owned the cottage were very helpful and friendly so you felt very welcome.
