The folly Whitby
We was so disappointed with the cottage. Do not book it if you are disabled like we are impossible stairs for us. Chairs in the living room uncomfortable. Too much tat on tables . NO microwave. Sorry had much better in Whitby for less money. Shall not be going back there.

Good but could do better
This is a great cottage in a great location let down by lack of attention. For example, great view of the harbour marred by filthy windows. The cottage is comfortable and clean where areas get used. The balcony railings need painting and the rusty tables replacing. The kitchen is well equipped but could do with the brown coloured wine glasses throwing away. There is a huge freezer but no microwave. Some means of recycling bottles and plastic was not to be found. The beds and seating were good. If you're wondering where the cold air is coming from in the lounge, its a heat recovery system which cannot be turned off seemingly. We increased the room stat to compensate. Would I go again - yes. I would recommend it to others. I hope the owners take it in hand and then a review can go from very good to excellent.

Wonderful!!
We stayed for 3 nights. The house is beautiful both in it’s interior and also it’s position. The balcony was our favourite bit. We ate on it for all our meals(weather was great) and we never tired of watching the tide ebb and flow and the boats unloading their catches. One of the best places we have stayed in.

Wonderful location.
Found this gem online and stayed for five nights and it was excellent, it is well layed out having a galley kitchen, a lovely lounge with a balcony over the harbour, a good size bedroom on the first floor and everywhere you go you can see the harbour, even in the shower,there is also a single bed on the first floor,however the access to this is through the main bedroom, The steps are steep but not a problem and it adds to the character of this quirky cottage. We would definitely stay here again its a wonderful relaxing base to stay.

Stunning
Absolutely stunning cottage overlooking the harbour with balcony. We stayed for the weekend and didn't want to leave. So many gorgeous things to look at in The Folly! We were left a bottle of prosseco for our anniversary! Bed really comfortable. We will definitely be booking again

Very Close To The Sea!!!
The balcony overhangs the harbour and there are sea views from every room. Undoubtedly one of the best locations in Whitby this charming quirky cottage is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Not for the physically impaired - steps to the bedrooms are steep. Ive been coming to Whitby for many years and I've never seen a seal in the harbour. That changed the morning following a storm the previous night.Swimming about to greet us as we woke was a solitary seal. I can't promise you will see seals but the comings and goings in the harbour will keep you amused for hours. This is a wonderful place to stay with all Whitby has to offer on the doorstep.

romantic retreat
We had been looking forward to this holiday and we were not disappointed, We love Whitby anyway, its so pretty. The Folly is a hidden gem, seconds away from the hustle and bustle. Beautifully decorated and with everything you would need, luxurious and functional. We spent so much time sitting on the balcony overlooking the harbour watching the beautiful sunsets and loved watching the fishermen bring in their catches. Yes of course it rained (its England) but it didn't diminish the holiday. We just got on with it. Loved the place and wish we hadn't had to leave. Will definitely be back.
