Cottage
Easter Morn can be found tucked away in a quite yard off the Cragg behind the Fishermans and The Pier Inn this cottage may not be suitable for babies, very young children or people with walking difficulties as it is up 24 steps from the Cragg there also several more gentle steps from Pier Road up the Cragg but we feel that the steps from the Cragg up to the cottage are more difficult this why we would not recommend it to anyone with mobility problems. It has a small yard and about 150 yards from the harbour side and fish market and the beach is at the end of the road and is very central to all amenities Sea views over lower properties from all 3 rear windows The cottage is comfortable for 4 people and may be tight in the lounge for 6 There is a washing machine and tumble dryer for the...Easter Morn can be found tucked away in a quite yard off the Cragg behind the Fishermans and The Pier Inn this cottage may not be suitable for babies, very young children or people with walking difficulties as it is up 24 steps from the Cragg there also several more gentle steps from Pier Road up the Cragg but we feel that the steps from the Cragg up to the cottage are more difficult this why we would not recommend it to anyone with mobility problems.

Enjoyable week adequate accomodation!
The cottage is situated on the cliffside above Pier Road, and is at most 10 minutes walk from the bus or train station. We arrived by bus and John very kindly met us with his van to transport our luggage to the cottage and also he gave us a hand up with it. He also made sure we had the phone number for his mobile in case of any problems. Access to the cottage is up some steep steps, I notice in the advert it states over 20 steps up from The Cragg, but what they fail to say is that the Cragg itself is over 20 steps up from the main road, so to get to the cottage one needs to climb 43 steep, badly maintained steps covered in leaves which are slippy when wet. Some of the steps are also pretty uneven which makes it even more difficult. The cottage is small, but well designed and although the sink is behind the kitchen door it is not a problem, as a previous review suggests and neither is the shower being so close to the toilet. The space is in fact well used. The shower is small but efficient and seemed clean as did all of the bathroom. The lounge has two sofa beds, both of which have seen better days, and are not particularly comfortable to sit on or indeed sleep on. The two single beds in the room next to the lounge are ok. The lounge also has a gate leg folding table and six folding dining chairs. The table is fine, but some of the chairs seemed a little rickety and we feared they may collapse. The upper bedroom is quite large, but one has to be very careful not to bang heads on various beams and abutments. The double bed is adequate, but could do with a better mattress. Drawers were clean, and the lamps each side of the bed were useful. Plenty of sockets too.The wardrobe was a little strange and I didn't use it. Access to the top room was via a very tight spiral stair with one step at a different height to the others which was somewhat disconcerting. Each step tapered to little more than an inch at the narrowest from six inches at widest which was also difficult. The kitchen was reasonably well equipped, but fairly basic. Microwave and fridge were clean but pots and pans were not and also the large frying pan was flaking it's teflon coating. I have in fact just thrown away a pan in better condition. All the glasses needed washing as did the crockery and cutlery. The cottage was relatively clean but the lounge furniture seemed to exude dust from beneath the cushions. The vacuum cleaner worked fine, but smelled terribly of wet dogs! The TV and DVD player were fine, and despite what someone else said they didn't really need a manual to find out how to work them. For those who have no idea, the DVD player is located at the right hand side of the TV behind the screen and is a DVD sized slot. You need to first change the source on the TV to DVD, using the source button on the remote. Then introduce the DVD label facing towards you as you face the screen, and gently insert till the player sucks the DVD in. The little yard is very small and again up steps from the kitchen door. It could do with some tidying and could be made really nice. On the whole it was a cheap weeks holiday there in adequate warm conditions with minor disconforts. As it was really just used as a base to sleep and eat it served well although we had one wet day when we spent quite a lot of time there. There is no WiFi at the cottage, but BT Fon is accessible and works at about 500mbs, so fairly slow, but I could stream cricket and Netflix without problem. There is a pub quite close to the cottage and they have "music" on a saturday night which is quite loud in the top room, but finishes at 11:30pm. If you like that sort of thing, John informed me that the beer is only £1-70 a pint and is probably worth it to hear "Hi Ho Silver Lining" sung in three separate keys at the same time. Whitby is a lovely place to visit and the cottage is well situated for the bus and train and also for all the amenities and sights of Whitby. John and Jean seemed very helpful and we thank them for a lovely week.

Don't book
Getting to the cottage was a challenge, not very accessible having over 40 steep stone steps that even the fit young adults in early 20's found hard work! Found the accommodation very dirty throughout with chipped plates, a dirty teacloth, and a bed settee that if you sat on it, dips at an acute angle. Glad we brought our own cooking equipment, wouldn't have been able to reach theirs as high above the cupboards and things in the cupboards were dirty and greasy. The kitchen tap was behind the main door to the cottage. There was no instruction about TV, couldn't find DVD player and the video player was jammed. The stairs to the main bedroom not much better than a fireman's pole! Inside the wardrobe upstairs was an old sock covered in dust and broken coat hangers. the rug was covered in dog hairs which stuck to our clothes. the upstairs became very warm at night but couldn't open windows as locked. The advert said about a small garden area, this was just a small outside bit for the bins that could have done with being cleaned up. not enough room to swing a cat! Found it very hard to sleep at night due to the boiler that made awful noises and after 5.30am the sea gulls wouldn't shut up! Put a brave front on it, but was so disgusting, I had to leave half way through because I felt dirty. And don't bank on Paypal to back you up, because they won't help you get your money back. I lost loads of money in petrol travelling somewhere that made me feel grateful to come back home. Basic is not the word to describe this place. If you have a good imagination, you might be able to manage it, but I wouldn't bank on it. Only if you like insanitary conditions or a challenge would this be the place for you.

A fair review, quaint cottage however in need a very good deep clean.
Cottage is in an excellent location, due to amount of steps leading up to the cottage would not be suitable for the less able people or small children. Furniture is very basic but not an issue as the location out weighs the decor. Biggest let down was the cleanliness in cottage. I think it is fair to say it was absolutly filthy in every room , not to mention the tea towel. This cottage hadn't been cleaned for a very long period of time. We left after one night in discuss. I recieved a txt from the owner to ask if everything was ok and if there was any issues however just didn't want to argue over what had spoilt our weekend as we felt let down and extremely gutted as it was.

Good location ,shame about the cleanliness
Easter Morn is a nice traditional cottage , basic furnishing , which is fine , and very good central location (lots of steep steps to climb) which again was fine , however the massive let down was the cleanliness ... and I dont mean getting down and hunting dirt out , unfortunately it was there to be seen in very clear view ... the drawers and cupboards were dirty , the pan we were going to use had old food in it , all the utensils felt greasy the sink was dirty , there was a teatowel that was filthy , the fridge was dirty , the cooker was greasy , all work surfaces were dirty , I had to clean the toilet before use , then I dropped some change under the bed , wish I hadnt , it cannot have been cleaned for ages covered in dust . It is sch a shame because it could be a lovely place to stay just needs a good deep clean and it would be transformed into a really nice quirky holiday rental .

I am sorry that you found the cottage not entirely to your liking but I did say to do you when I showed you up the cottage if there was any thing wrong at all to let me know and I would sort it as I heard nothing from you I assumed every thing was fine, My husband also sent you text message on arrival which we send to all our customers and again we received no response. We have over 100 testimonials on our Facebook page many about that cottage

Lovely authentic fisherman's cottage in the heart of whitby
We had this cottage 1 very wet and cold night in February. The place was warm and cozy. It could do with some renovation and updating, but only if such things matter to you. Friendly owners, who told us the story of Skipper Jack, and tipped us about the fisherman's club down the jitty.
