The cottage is located on the West side of the seaside town making it perfect for reveling in nostalgic seaside charm - head to the arcades or explore the beautiful, blue flag West Cliff Beach which is lined with idyllic beach huts.

Venture over the swing bridge and you’ll reach the East bank. This side of Whitby is full of narrow, medieval streets dotted with boutiques, pubs and 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.

Excellent only one critique the shower control is defective



A fantastic property in a central location but so peaceful. We loved the kitchen and it's very sociable large table. Everywhere was beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Having two parking spaces in the centre of Whitby was just fantastic. Very impressed with the communication from Host and Stay especially the easy to download APP that was just for the property with all the information easy to access. Highly recommend both Mumbles Cottage and Host and Stay.



Lovely cottage , cosy and comfortable. Really quiet location but easy walking into town or up to west cliff - great spot. Very clean , gorgeous bathroom , soft towels and super comfy beds .





Excellent place to stay for a few nights in Whitby. Good value although the £90 cleaning fee of 3 nights - and the £10 "admin" fee for sending a security deposit - is a bit too expensive/cheeky. Especially as they are already covered through Air B&B's insurance. The walls to next door are a little thin and we could here next door chatting. But it wasn't too bad. I would recommend it - but maybe not for a family with very young children.



Great location. Easy walking distance to everything you want but also fairly quiet. Lovely little outside space too.



The house was very comfortable and homely. There was space for both our (small) cars to park, and we could easily walk to all the local amenities.<br/><br/>Not enough equipment for six people to prepare food; no saucepans apart from the bottom of a steamer that wasn’t large enough, no kitchen scissors and no egg cups, so no boiled eggs for breakfast, which is what we’d wanted. <br/>Also, the shower tray is very large and slippery and could do with some grab rails.



This place was perfect for us - close enough to the middle of Whitby to walk everywhere but on a quiet street so we weren’t disturbed by town noise <br/>Parking can be tricky to find as it’s at the back of the house but instructions from the host were great. <br/>Host was super response and proactive.



We had a lovely break staying in the mumbles cottage. It is in such a great location for all things Whitby has to offer and there is parking for 2 cars.



Perfect location. High quality cottage with everything you could need



Ideal location in centre of Whitby. Parking a real plus. Spacious comfortable and light, plenty of room for six. Well equipped kitchen, excellent shower. Overall, one of the best holiday cottages we have had in a while!



Extremely comfortable. Ideal central location for any part of Whitby. Very well equipped and lovely private outside space. Ideal for a quiet drink or just relaxing in the sun. Spacious kitchen with everything you would need. Appreciated the recommendations for local restaurants. Private parking is a must in Whitby so this was a definite bonus. The cottage has been furnished to a high degree and really cosy. Would certainly recommend to anyone.





Lovely little cottage-type house. Pretty much the centre of Whitby, walking distance to everything you'd need. <br/>Easy to find - although parking is around the back, and the streets leading to the parking space are very narrow (for reference, we managed to get an Audi Q3 in and parked, but I wouldn't be confident with anything bigger).<br/>Acceptably clean, although given that you pay a cleaning fee on top of the regular fee, I would've expected things to be immaculate, which they weren't. Nothing to complain about, but another run around with a hoover and duster wouldn't have gone amiss.<br/>Toilets very small - not a problem for us, but genuinely if you're a bigger than average you might have trouble getting in and shutting the door! Shower lovely and big. <br/>Kitchen more than adequate and well stocked with essentials. Appreciate the tea, coffee and milk left for us. Overall v good stay, and would stay again.



Everything was perfect<br/><br/>Wobbly toilet seat?? not a deal breaker



A lovely few days in Whitby. The location is in a lovely secluded spot with the benefit of off-street parking and is just 5 minutes from the waterfront. House is clean, tidy, well equipped and has plenty of space. Would definitely recommend and come back!



Mit viel Liebe zum Details sehr stimmig und gemütlich eingerichtet. Alles entsprach voll und ganz der Beschreibung und unseren Erwartungen. Sehr sauber, alles nötige vorhanden. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder. Perfekt für eine Familie.



My parents, wife, 2 year old son and I have just had a fantastic stay at this lovely place. Couldn't ask for anything else. Would highly recommend ?.



Decor, facilities location<br/><br/>Car access, v.difficult in a large 4x4<br/>Shower water temp v.high, unable to alter



The cottage was beautifully furnished with lots of cool seaside features and very clean. Great location, with a bakery on the doorstep and the beach and fish and chips galore within a stone’s throw. We loved our first trip to Whitby- the Abbey, microbreweries everywhere, romantic windy streets and interesting shops. Only stress was finding the cottage and manoeuvring a big car through narrow streets, so make sure you read the instructions in the guidebook before you come!
