Great stay with my Wife and two young kids, stayed in the family room on top floor, B&B is clean and tidy and owners couldn't of been more friendly or helpful. The breakfast was great and overall its a great base to explore Whitby from.

First class welcome. First class cooked breakfast. Our Old English Sheepdog Oscar was welcomed and we will definitely be going back. The location is fine, on the West Cliff and the people who run the place deserve all the praise. Until next time!
