Property Details

The Space
Blue Sky Cottage boasts a homely and welcoming living room where you can unwind with your loved ones. Featuring comfy sofas, two chairs and a flat screen TV, it’s the ideal place to relax.

Continue through the archway and you’ll reach the dining area which includes a large wooden dining table and black leather chairs.

Take the stairs up to the first floor and you’ll find three bedrooms and the family bathroom.

Set on the West side of Whitby, Blue Sky Cottage is just a short 10-minute walk into the centre of town. Head to Pier Road and you’ll find cosy pubs, fun arcades and plenty of fish restaurants. Continue along the lively road until you reach the beautiful, blue flag West Cliff Beach which is lined with idyllic beach huts. At the other end of Pier Road, you’ll notice the swing bridge which sits over the River Esk.

Over the bridge, you’ll find yourself on the East bank which is full of narrow medieval streets dotted with boutiques, pubs and even more fish restaurants. Climb the famous 199 steps up to the Church of Saint Mary. You can also discover the renowned ruined Whitby Abbey, which was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s gothic novel ‘Dracula’.

Step outside of Whitby and you’ll uncover a haven of woodland and moorland. Whitby forms part of the North York Moors National Park so it’s the perfect place for long walks.

Getting Around
Whitby train station is just a short 5-minute walk away so villages and towns along the North Yorkshire coast can easily be reached via rail. There’s also a taxi rank in close proximity to the train station.

There are plenty of bus routes throughout Whitby. Hop on the X4 and you can visit beautiful coastal villages like Sandsend, Runswick Bay and Staithes. The X93 travels along the coast to Scarborough. The 95 route features plenty of quaint villages, such as Grosmont and Lealholm.

The house was clean and tidy. Not far from the centre of Whitby. Catered for 5 adults easily. Also had a starter pack with tea, Coffee, sugar and cleaning products.<br/><br/>No parking near the property. Although we did find space on the road not far away. The wifi was very poor but as we were there as a family this did not bother us too much.



Great stay



The house is in a good location near to the centre of Whitby with lots nearby. Decor throughout the house was lovely and modern. However, the cleanliness of the house was not good. Simple things that you’d expect to be clean like the bathroom and kitchen were not. The toilet seat was hanging off, shower had hairs in and the window had toothpaste all over it. The trays in the oven were thick with grease and glasses and plates were dirty. Picture frames, lamp shades and blinds were dusty. There was also a strange smell throughout the house. The properly needs some serious TLC.



Great place and host. Would highly recommend!



Great place and host, would highly recommend!



Blue Sky cottage was lovely and clean and tastefully decorated. It is close the centre of Whitby (10 min walk) and an ideal base for exploring, but there is a steep hill to walk up coming back. We had an issue when we first arrived which was quickly sorted by host & stay and by the owner of the property. After that we enjoyed our stay but I would say that the bed in the front bedroom is very uncomfortable and really could do with a new mattress - I could feel every spring!



Home was spacious and close for walking to into Whitby centre. <br/>Checkin was very easy and Charlie gave clear instructions.



Easy to find the house and easy to get in using the instructions provided. The house was beautifully decorated and had everything you would need. Bedrooms were really nice with amazing mattresses which meant everyone slept really well. Area was quiet although parking is a bit of a nightmare - had to park 10 mins away but the hosts had told us that parking can be an issue so it wasn't unexpected. The house is well located with a short walk into Whitby. The hill is pretty steep on the way back if you have older guests or young children. Only issue was that the Wi-Fi password provided both by the hosts and in the property was incorrect. I contacted the host and they responded immediately but were unable to fix it. I eventually sorted it out myself. Would highly recommend this property and would definitely visit again.



Excellent location. Easy short walk to centre of town. Peaceful area. Very comfortable beds. Very roomy. Would definitely recommend.



Good location and decent sized rooms.<br/><br/>Internet didn’t work.<br/>Property was dirty.<br/>Rubbish from previous tenants still there.<br/>Charged unexpected deposit fees ONTOP of price on<br/>Even when contacting regarding the state of the property and issues, no resolution.<br/>Held off leaving a review till OVER A MONTH after my stay to see if I would receive any of the compensation they promised me. It has now almost been 2 months and not a penny my direction. <br/><br/>DO NOT RECOMMEND.



Great property , excellent location and would highly recommend to stay there



First time I’ve used Airbnb and was really pleased. Accommodation lovely - bright and airy . A real home from home. Would definitely re book.



Distinctive smell of cat pee. Stains on rug, Hair on base of toilet. Dusty windowsills. Wallpaper peeling off bathroom ceiling.<br/>No hand soap anywhere. No kitchen spray to wipe surfaces. A dribble of fairy liquid to wash up with.<br/>ill fitting loose toilet seat. Back yard needs sorting out. <br/>I could go on and on.



The room was very nice, spacious and bright. Ten minutes walk to Whitby harbour. There is a big hill on the road to arrive the house though which makes it a bit of a struggle to walk up. The kitchen was well equipped inside and there was a dishwasher, so it was easy to use and you didn't have to worry about washing the dishes after cooking!



Nice area<br/><br/>First and foremost you have to deal with the smell of Cat Pee, the smell is horrendous so much so that we left a day early because of it. We had to buy a plug in air freshener for each room just to be able to go in them.<br/><br/>This was in early reviews so I assumed it would have been dealt with. <br/><br/><br/>The bathroom smells of pee, the rugs were filthy. There were cobwebs everywhere considering we arrived as the cleaner left it was a bit of a poor effort. <br/><br/><br/>The only reason we stayed was because I knew there would be no chance of getting the money back and it was our holiday.<br/><br/><br/>I understand something's are out of your control but please address the smell as I would definitely not recommend the cottage to anyone.<br/><br/><br/>A very disappointed ex customer.
