“Just a message to say thank you for such a wonderful stay.  The accommodation, including the location, was fantastic and New Year on the beach was wonderful.  I proposed to my now new fiancée looking out across the bay and I couldn’t have hoped for a more special setting with the fireworks, Chinese lanterns, and bonfires on the beach, not to mention the friends and family we had with us.  Once again thank you, and I’m sure we will both be back in the near future as it is a special place for us with some fantastic memories already.”

“We have arrived back home in Northampton after having a wonderful three days in Whitby.  Just wanted to say thank you for letting us use your lovely, homely, cosy cottage.  We were thrilled when we saw it.  We loved staying there.  I will definitely be recommending you to our friends and family.  Whitby itself is so gorgeous, and so much to do, we didn't want to leave, of course the weather helped as it was beautiful apart from Tuesday morning but we stayed in the warm.

Thank you again Tim, a very clean, well equipped, SUPER cottage.”
