I just wanted to say a huge thank you. The cottage was just perfect for our needs.
I was also extremely impressed with the way that you provided so much useful information ahead of the trip and also replies to my queries while I was there. The ‘nothing is too much trouble’ standard is certainly something that you have lived up to in my experience.

Just returned from a fantastic weeks holiday in Whitby, staying so close to the Abby and the quaint and historic Church street was really special for us, especially celebrating New Year’s Eve and the run up the Abby steps just before midnight and the firework display from atop was truly memorable!
Spindletop cottage is without doubt the prime location to stay, very homely, cosy and comfortable beds!

The xmas welcome pack was very nice from the owners and was really appreciated and also a bonus for our pet dog to be allowed to stay in such a lovely cottage.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Aug 2015 Loved our stay here in this gorgeous cottage. This is the best cottage we have stayed in, in Whitby on all our visits. Will def come back.
— Sophie & Mark (Via Guestbook 2015)
5 star - August 2015 Myself and my partner stayed at this cottage for a week and the location is brilliant for any of the features Whitby. Its within 1 minute walk from a beach looking out over sea walls, and 4 minutes walk from another beach along the inside of the pier.

Nearby there are a number of pubs all were lovely, we tried the board inn for the pub quiz and nearly won a nice jackpot, but for a trick question! The cobbled streets are lovely and the walk up the 199 steps outside the front door is a must, at the top Saint Mary’s Church and Whitby Abbey but also the stunning views!

All of Whitby harbour is in walking distance from the cottage, I can’t stress enough how lovely it was staying here and will definitely be returning soon.
