Located a stones throw from the beach, this guest house is an absolute pleasure from the second you step inside. Beautifully and tastefully furnished by Sharon and Paul, the decor lends to a period look with a modern feel. The hosts were welcoming and extremely friendly, and made us feel so at home throughout. Paul's ginger curd and homemade bread...

We have stayed in hotels and B & B's in many countries, certainly the hotels just become a distant memory, but the B & B's usually leave an impression, mainly because you speak to real people not just corporations. Abbott's Leigh did not disappoint, from the moment we arrived we felt welcome, Paul and Sharron were perfect hosts. The accommodation...

We have stayed in many B&Bs over the years but Abbotsleigh is definitely the best. Sharon and Paul are so welcoming and completely in tune with what visitors require to make their stay a comfortable one. It is like being a personal guest in their home. From the welcome tea and cake upon arrival to the excellent cooked breakfasts using...

Sharon & Paul could not have been more welcoming or helpful. The room and bed were very comfortable, clean and quiet moreover. Very good wet room shower room. We had a very restful nights' sleep. Breakfast was faultless from delicious fresh summer fruits, to traditional Whitby smoked kippers and very nicely done full English. Will definitely be back.

We stayed here for 2 nights when we got married on 16th July this year. The rooms and food, including the welcoming cake were fabulous, and the hosts were so lovely and professional yet friendly. We booked 4 rooms for some of our family and friends as well as ourselves, all were wonderful and we are hoping to visit again.
