Thanks to Ron and Liz for their excellent hospitality. Everything was perfect, and the owners certainly made the stay memorable. Our room was on the top floor, so a bit of a trek, however it was warm and comfortable, and had a spacious bathroom. We'll definitely be back!

A very well situated guest house, being only five minutes walk from the centre of wonderful whitby. The owners, Ron & Liz, are lovely and welcoming, whilst allowing you your privacy. Dogs are also welcome, which is a massive bonus. Breakfast is top notch and well worth wrenching yourself out of bed for. We will definitely stay here again.
