“A nice new appartment but needs a bit of attention”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Great location and easy to get to the Cinder Track which is an old railway track that takes you into Whitby. We were delighted by the addition of the Christmas tree & decorations which was a nice touch but very disappointed that all the windows still had stickers all over them which spoilt the views!

“A very pleasant 3 night break”
Reviewed 30 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The owner was very nice and provided us with some useful info upon arrival. The apartment is very new and well equipped. Dog friendly and lots of walks around the property. Also easy access to the old railway line which takes you towards Whitby or Robin Hoods Bay and beyond.

“Excellent place to stay, cottage superb with excellent views.”
Reviewed 27 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This holiday was excellent a lovely cottage with superb views of the abbey and the sea and was within easy reach of the shops. The peace and quiet was wonderful, which was well needed and the cottage was warm and very inviting can't fault it apart from could not find the fire extinquisher and fire blanket it mentioned. The owners were also very pleasant and welcoming. We would definitely come again and bring the family next time.

Rented this apt for the weekend as going to a Wedding in Whitby, the price was excellent value, tthe apt was very new , it is well equipped and very comfortable, the views of the Abbey and the sea were fantastic .The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The only minor things were that all the windows still had stickers on them , a bin would be good in the bathroom and a carving knife in the kitchen. We were very grateful for the free eggs. Would definitely recommend and would visit again .

Thank you for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in The Crows Nest, and we will of course welcome you back again. After reading your review, we have included a small bin in the bathroom, bought a knife block for the kitchen and gone round all the windows! Thank you for the pointers. Being a newly built apartment, we welcome all comments so we can always further improve.

“Excellent, it could not have been any better”

I have to say that this cottage was much, much better than I originally anticipated. It had everything you could possibly need and more!!

When we got there we had to drive up a long private driveway where we arrived at the Farm, we had our own a private parking space, enough for 2 cars. The cottage itself was up a fight of stairs and was located above a garage. This gave us fantastic views over Whitby Abbey and the sea from the front of the cottage and fields to the back. There was a massive open plan kitchen, dining and living area with a DVD player and large TV. There was a 4 seater dining table and a 4 seater sofa, which was extremely comfy and looked brand new (it also converted into an extra bed).

In the kitchen there was a fridge (which had a small freezer compartment), washing machine, oven, hob and microwave. There were pots, pans, plates, colanders, tea & coffee, utensils - everything really!!

The next room was a large bedroom, which had a very comfy double bed, a wardrobe (with plenty of hangers) and a set of drawers for clothing.

The bathroom had a shower and a bath. The shower was one of the ones which attached to the taps, but it was easy enough to use.

The whole place was immaculately clean, very tidy and brand new. I honestly cannot say a bad word about it and for around £75 per night it was a bargain. We also took the dog, which did not cost us any more and there were plenty of walks and acres of fenced off open land for him to run around in. The owners were fantastic, they gave us a warm welcome which was very helpful and then they left us to ourselves to enjoy our stay.

Opposite the Farm is a Sainsbury's (which came in useful for breakfast stuff) and a petrol station. Within the grounds of the farm there was also a picnic area with a communal BBQ, plenty of benches, a children's play area (which you could see from the window and was very safe as the main road is a 5min walk down the drive), there were ducks, geese and chickens with fresh eggs every morning and a family games room with a pool table and indoor seating.

Whitby was 1.8 miles away. We walked into town, it was all downhill and only took 25 mins (as we were not in any rush). We got a taxi back as we had walked miles round Whitby too and were shattered, it cost around £6 (with the dog) from outside the bus station to the cottage.

I will defiantly go back and would not even consider using anywhere else now I have found this place. It is ideal for a Whitby stay and great value.
