The Castle House has absolutely everything to make you feel so at home. Perfectly located with private parking and just a nice 25 min stroll to the town centre. We took our 2 pugs with us and even they were catered for with bowls, leads, towels and treats! Nichola provided lots of useful information even down to local pubs and restaurants and walking directions. Highly recommend!

Its in the title! Love this place. It has everything you need. Im on maybe my seventh or eigth visit. Its own private drive, a godsend that allows to to explore the surrounding villages without thinking about parking on your return, a secure rear garden which is perfect for my boy who is welcomed not just 'dog friendly', and a lovely homely feel inside. Just back from my usual September stay which was my third this year. I should be saying dont book as it reduces my chance of staying but i wouldnt want to deprive anyone of the pleasure so check it out 😍 Lesley and Krakken

Just returned from our second stay at Castle House. Situated on one of the main roads leading into Whitby opposite Sneaton Castle gates. Not in the town, but near enough. The terraced house is spotless and believe me, it will have everything you need, even an electric charging point for the car. The beds are comfortable with lovely white sheets. The bathroom has a bath with a shower and a separate toilet and a second toilet downstairs which is very handy. There is a Lidl a few minutes walk away (freshly baked rolls every day) There are lots of lovely places to eat and visit in and around Whitby. A lot of thought has gone into this very desirable property. Nicola is very helpful, and always available should you have a problem.

We stayed at the Castle House for one wonderful week. Just five minutes down the road on our first walk we came upon the amazing view over the golf course and down to the beach. The sun was going down and it felt like paradise to two long standing friends and their respective furry pals playing at the water’s edge. The property is so well located and we spent the week in more stunning locations, Whitby, Sandsend, Staithes, Robins Hood Bay etc, always coming home to the little sun trap that is the garden at Castle House. The house and garden were perfect and everything has been thought of to make it a real home from home which I would definitely recommend

Hi, Thank you so much for your brilliant review of our Little House in Whitby! Yes, that wander to the beach (past a great, dog friendly pub!) is lovely, and the views are breathtaking! I'm glad you enjoyed our garden too, it really is like being in the middle of countryside, rather than a stones-throw from the beach! You're very welcome back, so whenever you fancy, please just drop us a line. Cheers, Nichola x Greenwood Holiday Cottages

First time we have actually stayed in Whitby and this lovely cottage came very highly recommended by a good friend who has stayed here on many occasions, I can now see why my friend keeps returning, situated directly opposite Sneaton Castle gates on a main but not too busy road and just a 20 minute walk into Whitby, all our holidays have to be planned around our dog and this couldn’t have been any more dog friendly even down to “holiday tags” for their collar in case they get lost, the house is spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean, the complimentary wine, milk & teabags were a welcome touch too, also a big plus was the immaculate enclosed rear garden, also off road parking and a charger for electric cars if needed, so much thought has gone in to this accommodation to make it a very desirable holiday let, Nichola was at the end of the phone if needed and was more than helpful to us. We have already booked for next year 👍👍

Hi, Thank you so much for your brilliant review of our Little House in Whitby! It's fantastic to hear that you stayed with us for your first ever visit to Whitby, that always makes us so happy! It's great that we were recommended too! Reviews are always wonderful to help future guests to get any idea of a place but nothing can beat a personal recommendation, so that means a huge amount. It's great that you loved the old girl and how dog friendly we are, we always worry about this, as it's so subjective but are very happy that we were perfect for your little woofers! Thank you for your lovely words about me too, that always makes it worthwhile. It's excellent that you've already rebooked with us for next year too, you're always very welcome. Cheers, Nichola x Greenwood Holiday Cottages

You're very welcome, so please just drop us a line whenever you fancy having a wander. Cheers, Nichola x Greenwood Holiday Cottages

We enjoyed a lovely weekend here as a family of four plus the dog! The house had everything we could have needed, it was spotlessly clean and the most dog friendly place we have stayed at. The owner was very helpful with advice and information, much appreciated. We’d highly recommend this property, it’s in a great location for the town and for countryside walks. Lots of places locally to eat and drink, we hope to visit again. Off road parking too!

Just come back from a fantastic week at The Castle House. The property is well situated for both days out in Whitby and exploring the wider area. The facilities are fantastic and the owners were extremely helpful when we had any questions or requests (like surprising my wife with flowers & chocolates). Can't recommend highly enough & hoping to go back in the future.

Nichola's Castle House in Whitby, is a great place to stay. Easy to find and so central without being in the centre of town. Its just a 10/15 minute walk from West Cliff and the dogfriendly part of the beach ( we thought it was the best bit - flat and sandy with plenty of waves to jump ) !5 minutes in a slightly different direction takes you in to the town centre. The house itself is fully equipped with everything you could need ( as well as parking which seems to be a big bonus in Whitby ) and a wonderful quiet and enclosed garden, where all you hear is birdsong ! The house was very comfy, spotlessly clean and the Dogs enjoyed it too ! Lots of friendly communication with Nichola beforehand as well as a very handy list of places to eat and drink so was very easy to find the dogfriendly options. Recommend the Rusty Shears if you like your gin !

Hi, Thank you so much for your fantastic review of our Little House in Whitby! It's brilliant to hear that you enjoyed your stay and loved what we've done with the old girl! Yes, the back garden is a real sun trap and is great for sitting and enjoying the birdsong - it's like we're in the middle of the countryside, rather than a stones-throw from the beach! It's lovely to hear your kind words about me too, that makes me very humble and it's great to hear that you made full use of the lists that I provide, it's hard going checking out all of the great places to eat and drink but I took that on the chin for our lovely guests! lol You're very welcome back, so whenever you fancy having a wander, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

About the neighbourhood
Come and visit our Whitby, which is nestled along the banks of the natural harbour at the mouth of the River Esk, Yorkshire's only Salmon river, and see how flawless Whitby jet, made famous by Queen Victoria, is turned into arguably some of the most beautiful jewellery in the world. Then wander around its narrow streets crammed full of independent traders, selling everything from dog treats to dinosaurs! The Pannett Park museum and its grisly 'Hand of Glory' is another 'must see'; together with a visit (or two!) to the many local hostelries, where a thriving live music scene can be found.
Getting around
Here at The Castle House, we're perfectly placed to explore all the this gorgeous corner of Yorkshire has to offer, either on foot, by car or via public transport. The train station in the Town Centre is also the starting point for the North York Moor Railway, a heritage route with very regular steam trains which run from Whitby to Pickering via Goathland (or should I say Hogsmead or Hadensfield!). We're also very well placed for walking the Cleveland Way and the Cinder Track - which follows the route of the old railway line from Whitby to Scarborough via Robin Hoods Bay. Cyclists are well catered for too, with brilliant cycle tracks throughout the North York Moors National Park (which we're very close to!)
