“Very Close To The Sea!!!”
Reviewed 1 April 2017 for a stay in November 2016
person found this review helpful

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”
Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

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.
