“"Excellent service"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

Well what a brill weekend, Ron & Joan. "Thank you" for making our stay at Blencathra House a very happy one.. ..Excellent service, remembered your names when greeted in the morning, (it's the personal touches that stay with you). The rooms are spotless and the food delish'!!! I would certainly recomend staying there and looking forward to my next visit.

Stayed with Ron and Joan again 30th September 2011, just for one night sadly, as we could happily spend weeks here its so homely and welcoming.
Also with us two family dogs.
As usual a warm welcome on arrival and a lovely room we have not stayed in before at the front of the property, we have stayed in just about everyone so far and they are all clean, well presented, plenty of tea making stuff and the bathrooms/ensuite are always clean, fresh and again well stocked with soaps, shower stuff etc.
Breakfast in a lovelly decorated room is always well orgaised and the home cooked food is great, cooked nicely, hot and tasty with no bother for slight adjustments to the norm.
Never been here without there being plenty of other guests who always have a good word for everything which is nice to see.
Great location to walk down into the old and new town that normally takes about ten minutes and a matter of about five minutes to get down onto the beach below where the sands are clean and fresh.
These folks and their property are a credit to Whitby and we will be back soon.

Ron and Joan were life savers when, having arrived at our originally intended destination we found they had disregarded our booking, so we tried Blencathra instead as they had a vacancies sign.

Nothing was too much trouble for this lovely couple and we cannot thank them enough for a most enjoyable stay. Excellent breakfasts that set us up for the whole day, money for an icecream and a treat on leaving for the girls. If we visit Whitby again this is where we would choose to stay.

Just got back from whitby and stayed with Joan and Ron at Blencathra. A very nice and pleasant place . We had the top room number 8 what a fantastic view of the abbey. The food was very good and the choices were fantastic nothing was too much trouble for them. My wifes first time in whitby and she loved every moment. Whitby is very hilly but a taxi back to flat only £4.The rooms are very clean and tidy would recomend them to anyone

We have stayed with Joan & Ron several times over the past few years, they are very genuine honest people who will bend over backwards to accommodate their guests, their rooms are always very clean and well presented, there is a wide variety for breakfast and any special requests are catered for. We always try and book the same room as the view overlooking the Abbey is quiet outstanding.
