“Perfect holiday cottage in central Whitby”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We often stay in Whitby in B&B's but as we were travelling with another couple this time we wanted a little more space and privacy and so booked Gulls Cry and have no regrets. Our stay was brilliant. From enquiring about the cottage until arriving, communication with the owner was excellent and he was more than happy to answer queries and give advice etc. The cottage was immaculately clean, spacious and had everything we needed for our stay - the courtyard and BBQ were a particular highlight! The location was fantastic, only a couple of minutes from the harbour and close to shops for everything you may need. Would definitely recommend and will be staying again.

“We had a great time at this brilliant cottage”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Everything you could want was in the cottage and no expense was spared over the quality of the furniture and fittings.The attention to detail was superb. It was a joy to stay in. Also enjoyed the patio for the days we could sit out. We have already booked it for next year.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

After booking to go to the northern soul weekend this was most certainly the best place to stay . Home from home the accommodation facilities, location all if it was brilliant. I would most certainly recommend this to anyone in any season the accommodation caters for all. Suburb ,

“The Very Essence of Whitby”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

A delightful cottage, close to the harbour yet peaceful (except for the cries of the eponymous gulls, of course). Car park across the road. Very well appointed and comfortable. Exactly as described. TV in all the rooms (pleased the grandchildren). Sparkling clean. Lovely secluded patio. Gulls on the chimney pots. And of course there is Whitby with so much to see and do, and more fish and chips than anywhere else in the world, I guess.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Liked least: Could not persuade downstairs TV to change channel from BBC1. Others worked fine.

Grateful of your kind & swift review of Gulls Cry, so soon after leaving from your break.
Appreciate you chose to say "exactly as described" which is quite important to me and paints the picture for future guests to evaluate for themselves.

A big thank you for taking the time out to write us a lovely review of Gulls Cry, it is always really appreciated.
Although still in very good condition we are planning to refresh the Cottage in June to keep it to the high standard we have set out to achieve.
