Reviewed November 30, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

everything you could need, very clean and comfy beds. train station just round the corner and only £2.50 return to Whitby, saves trying to find a parking space.

What can I say about York House other than superb!
We went in summer so had lovely walks to Whitby with a treat at the end of the walk in the village pub. The pub food is amazing, we ate there twice it was so good, The Bridge Inn.
We had a food (and booze) shop delivered for when we arrived which meant there was no need to divert from the views to go shopping.
There were 5 adults, 2 teenagers and a dog on our trip and the house accommodated us all brilliantly.
The walk to Whitby is well worth it, I was there recuperating so got a taxi back which was only about £6 so if you aren't up to walking there's the steam train as well, true experience!
I can't wait to go back when it's all cosy and use the log burner and just sit with a nice glass of wine looking at that amazing view.
Vanessa is the perfect host and will give you all the help and advice you need for a perfect break.

“Home from Home - Chilled way to do Whitby”
Reviewed November 9, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

York House is in a great location. Directions and instructions given were all perfect.
You can never tire of that view across open fields to the Railway and beyond. Property is spacious, warm and welcoming, with all the facilities you could need.

We've been going to Whitby for years and this location allowed us to enjoy a relaxing half term holiday without the bustle of being in Town. It is only a 2 mile flat walk following the railway (path just after level crossing) and river into the Harbour, or if feeling energetic up the hill then into West Cliff.

Local top tips... try the sausage and egg butty from the local butcher's "Foster's" and save on Breakfast washing up. The Bridge Inn Beer garden must be the best place to be a Steam Trainspotter and we discovered the Geall Gallery Café in Grosmont. Did enjoy walking and running it all off too !!!

Few unexpected wildlife highlights from backing onto woods. Saw a Badger and a young Deer, both scrumping for fallen apples.

Thoroughly recommended Holiday Home but don't tell everybody or we'll never get back in ! ;) We'll be back for a winter retreat.
