Just returned home to Liverpool after a 4 day break to Whitby & I can honestly say it's a 10/10 for Crows Nest Cottage. The cottage is quirky, really cute & the location is brilliant. Waking up to views of the harbour was just lovely & a couple of minutes walk & you are at the foot of the 199 Steps. Jayne the owner was very generous providing tea, coffee, milk & biscuits - the cottage is a real home from home. Some really good restaurants within a stones throw from the cottage... All in all Crows Nest ticks all the boxes
Lovely clean house. Well situated for town and shopping. Quiet at night for a good nights sleep and very cosy and well equipped. Lovely pub across the road.

This cottage is in an ideal location right on the front of the Abbey side harbour. The place has bags of character and was well maintained. The view from the living room window was great. There is even a pub right across the road. Parking is available nearby although you may struggle with finding a space in high season. I'd therefore recommend staying out of high season for this rental. Nevertheless I have still awarded a 5 Star rating as I liked it so much.
I stayed here in November 2014 (sorry for the delay!), and had a wonderful 3 nights. The cottage itself has stacks of lovely features, is incredibly cosy and comfortable, has great amenities and is very good value. The fact that the main living room is upstairs means that you can look out of the harbour completely unhindered. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Jayne was very helpful and gave us tips on where to park nearby which is always very handy if you don't know a place. Two of us stayed here but there's lots of room for more. It's in a great spot as well, only a short walk into the main part of Whitby .
This cottage is situated close enough to everything to make it very convenient, but far enough away to avoid any noise. There are beautiful views of the harbour from all the windows, which is lovely to wake up to.
The cottage itself is beautiful and cleaned thoroughly throughout. We arrived to lots of little extras such as Tea, Coffee, Sugar, Milk and Cookies. Meaning we didn't have to dash out to the shop as soon as we arrived. It's these little thoughtful extras that makes this place really stand out amongst other Holiday Rentals. The Owner was very friendly and we felt as though if we had any issues she wouldn't hesitate to sort them out. As it happens we didn't.
The beds were super comfy and we had an excellent nights sleep, which is saying something for an 8 month pregnant lady! My 7 year old loved her top floor bedroom and the rooms even featured extras such as hair dryers, ironing facilities, hot water bottles and fans.
It's clear from the many comments in the guest book that we are not alone in this opinion. We would definitely book here again if we came back to whitby. We will be recommending it to all our friends!
Thank you for a lovely stay.
