Richemont Cottage is located in the centre of Whitby within walking distance of pubs, restaurants, cafes and bars. Head to Pier Road and you’ll find an array of 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 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.

Lovely location, so quiet yet only 1min walk to Whitby Harbour. Lovely outdoor space for our dog also.<br/><br/>TV occasionally had signal issues



Property clean and comfortable, information regards the property were excellent<br/><br/>Only slight grumble would be the faint dog odour



All worked well good location, well appointed, everything was in place leaving us to enjoy our time without having to worry about anything or spend time searching



The house is ideal for a young/small family looking to explore Whitby. It has all the basics plus a few nice touches, and is comfortable and pleasant. The location is absolutely unbelievable if you only want to be in the Whitby area, not sure how that works for people looking to explore Yorkshire as we didn’t look to do that ourselves.<br/><br/>No criticisms.



Excellent cottage to stay in whilst in Whitby, a stones throw away from everything. The cottage itself is in really good condition, and lovely quiet side-street location. Parking permit provided which is a bonus as well



Brilliant location, great having a back garden for the dog & host very responsive if needing help with anything.<br/><br/>Nothing to dislike, just a bit small for us & the dog but still had an enjoyable stay & would highly recommend.



We’ve stayed here twice now and both times have been lovely. The digital information pack provided has all the information you need. I recommend unloading your car at the bottom of the stairs, there’s a loading bay in front of a row of shops- one is Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary Charity Shop (in case you need to put it into sat nav) <br/>The door sometimes needs a little jimmy to get it to open, a few times we had the absolute fear that we were locked out. The back garden is rare for a cottage so close to the main front and it is perfectly enclosed for any pooches or for sitting outside. The living space room hasn’t got the most comfortable of sofas and you feel as though anyone walking past the property is in the cottage with you thanks to the single glazed windows- but that’s an excuse for you to get out and see more of Whitby, sit outside, or relax in the comfy bedrooms. The kitchen is well equipped, two dishwasher tablets provided. Highly recommend the property



Great location, lovely cosy little cottage in the perfect location with the added bonus of a garden<br/><br/>No wardrobes in the second bedroom and beds were a little hard





All of it<br/><br/>Nothing





Easy access<br/><br/>Nothing



The property was just as described the small beautifully kept garden was a real bonus and the cottage was in a perfect location<br/><br/>There was nothing I didn’t like



The location was really good. Within walking distance of amenities, the cottage was comfortable and really well fitted out.<br/><br/>It was a bit steep to get to. Also, there is no private parking. Not being able to get in while 4 and be out by 10



It had Everything you needed really home from home Perfect location lovely little garden<br/><br/>Seagulls squawking all night but it is Whitby afterall



The shower. Well presented comfortable bed<br/><br/>No wardrobe nor drawers in the second bedroom, unsuitable for 3 adults <br/>Having to pay £250 on top of the cost as a bond Only getting the money returned after we leave to return to Australia and charging £10 fee for the privilege. <br/>20 emails from Host and stay for the £250 bond could be considered as harassment <br/>I would never stay at another Host and Stay property. I thought I was booking on



The property was comfortable very clean everything you could possibly need was at hand cannot fault anything<br/><br/>We had a job finding it but no big problem



great place and whitby is a wonderful town. the bed was very hard and not as soft as I would have liked



Gorgeous little house in a great central location, yet quiet yard. Very warm and cosy and perfect for our family (2 adult & 2 kids (8&12)). <br/>Problem at check-in was annoying but fixed as quickly as possible with suitable compensation provided.





Everything was available upon arrival with the exception of the parking permit. A replacement arrived promptly. Whitby is one of our favourite coastal towns however it has very steep access to all areas. Access to cottage is via a steep restricted incline. There is a nearby lane that a car can travel but not park. The cottage location is therefore not suitable to anyone with walking disabilities or restricted to a wheelchair. The cottage is small but no problem for two adults and two children. Small garden to the rear. All you need for cooking should you wish to however the microwave did not function. The walk to the allocated car park is a steep climb so you do need to be fit. None of this is a complaint in any way. It`s just something that needs pointing out to potential customers. Whitby has a very well established holiday infrastructure. Beach is only 10 minutes walk from cottage. Town centre is the same. Railway station 15 mins walk. From point of booking to date of travel we were kept informed by client management. Texts to check all was well during stay also. All in all a very good experience<br/><br/>No parking permit when we arrived. Microwave did not function.



Lovely little cottage, very cosy and had everything we needed. Location was perfect, right in the centre of Whitby.



Very happy with our stay. Lovely, quaint cottage. It is really small but that's the nature of where it is. We managed with 2 adults 2 kids and a border collie. Location is perfect. Really clean and well presented. Not much wardrobe space. Lots of extras such as iron, towels, hairdryer, maiden etc



good facilities, clean and tidy<br/><br/>Parking not near the property so loading and unloading your luggage was difficult. would be very difficult for anyone with disability. garden a little untidy and very overlooked by other properties



Great location, cute cottage and considering that it is dog friendly the place was clean and without any dog smells. All the main attractions were within a short walk from the cottage.<br/><br/>Missing car parking badge upon arrival. Parking was refunded, but it took a little while until we finally got a hold of the person we spoke to at the time. Everyone else we spoke to from the team were unaware of the incident and were questioning the refund.



the cottage was nicely decorated & furnished<br/><br/>the dishwasher was left full of dirty pots & cutlery, no wash tablets for dishwasher, so had to take out cups and wash them <br/>so we could make drink not acceptable, fridge not been cleaned crumbs on shelves, toilet seat broken,no parking permit <br/>left for us , mattress in main bedroom very uncomfortable, garden needed attention grass mot been cut for weeks, table <br/>and chairs very dirty. back door to cottage had been left unlocked, we think that it should made clear that access is up a <br/>steep slope and steps not ideal for less mobile people.



Nice little cottage, fine for a family with small children who all get on well. Note that the cottage is accessed via narrow cobbled steps.



The property was in an excellent location. It was very comfortable and equipped to a high standard



This house is in a fantastic location for exploring Whitby and we enjoyed the walk to the car park when we needed to use the car. However we were 2 adults with a 12 & 14 year old, if we had brought our dog, which we had planned on doing, the house would have been too small for all of us, its really perfect for a two adults and one dog. Facilities were good and lovely shower and well equipped kitchen.





Everywhere was nice and clean. Only a 30 second walk to get to the centre. Lovely little cottage. Would definitely stop again!<br/><br/>The double bed was quite uncomfortable. Mattress was very hard. But that’s the only bad thing I can say!







Really decent accommodation. Good location and excellent communication. The only thing was the fact that we were asked to clean even though not only did we pay a cleaning fee but also check-out at 10:00 am so the cleaning team could arrive. So was a bit surprised that I was asked to clean. I was not planning to leave the place in a disaster, but still... to be asked to clean. Also the parking si a bit far if you wanna carry luggage's. The downstairs rom was a a bit smaller than I expected. But the garden was excellent for our dog, and the place was warm and tidy.



Great cottage, central location, and well presented. Lovely stay





Lovely, clean, well-located and well-equipped stay. Great easy check-in and welcome guide. Ideal for our first weekend away with our dog with a securely enclosed garden. Only problem was the lock on the front door being very difficult to unlock.





Great house in a super location. Everything you need for a comforatable stay. Thanks very much



Nice hard furnishings<br/><br/>Dirty cushions on furniture <br/>Electric cables hanging from ceiling<br/>Cobwebs on every light fittings and the windows<br/>Rust on bathroom blind <br/>Rough bedding<br/>Dead bugs on window sills<br/>No toilet paper<br/>Soap dispenser down stairs extremely dirty





The place was in an amazing location and spotlessly clean. It has a great living space and the kitchen is lovely. It leads out onto a private garden which would be perfect for the summer. The whole place was lovely and will now be our 'go to' accommodation for Whitby family holidays in the future.<br/><br/>The place was perfect! If you're coming with a pram you'll need to carry it up a few steps, but Whitby is like that anyway so it wasn't a problem at all.



Very comfortable, had everything we needed (including treats for our dog!) and we slept well every night. It was the perfect place for our short holiday in Whitby.<br/><br/>Nothing!



Clean, comfy, excellent location.





Short walk from bus stop and railway station. <br/>Good kitchen. <br/>Relaxing front room. <br/>Comfortable beds. <br/>Bathroom good.<br/><br/>Can't say there's anything I disliked. <br/>It was very good, as expected.



This is a great central location, away from the hustle and bustle so ideal for a couple or a family with children. Had an issue with maintenance but contacted the host and it was sorted the same day. A lovely place to stay!



Perfect location for a stay in Whitby, very close to the beach and great pubs/restaurants!!





Great location, very clean and comfortable. <br/><br/>Free parking space & WiFi was really appreciated, as was the little bottle of milk waiting for us in the fridge.<br/><br/>The stay staff were super responsive and accommodating and provided a high chair for us on request.<br/><br/>These are just slight niggles really.<br/><br/>An ice cube tray for the freezer would have been nice as it was quite hot. <br/><br/>No convenient parking nearby, unloading the car wasn’t easy and it’s not buggy friendly (the entrance is down a narrow steep path).<br/><br/>We managed with a baby carrier but wheelchair users might struggle. <br/><br/>TV a bit on the small side, but these are only minor gripes. We had a lovely stay and would definitely stay again.



Great little cottage . Everything we needed . Lovely decor . The garden was amazing , especially with a dog. Great location and comfy bed . 5 stars



Fantastic cottage in a great location!



Lovely stay in Whitby. <br/>Very central localtion.



What a lovely little gem in a fantastic location tucked away just off the hustle and bustle but so peaceful. Beautiful decor and clean throughout. Ideal for our short break in Whitby.



We had a lovely stay herei it is centrally located and everything is within walking distance but a word of caution like other guests have mentioned access is via a steep passageway with stairs and the car park is a good 10 minute walk away . You can’t get the car permit until you can access the property which is 3pm so we paid £5 to park until we could move the car so a bit of planning needed .<br/>The second bedroom is small <br/>The cottage is spotlessly clean



Excellent in all respects. Spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and furnished plus an excellent location in the centre of Whitby. The sunny garden was a real bonus!



As the description says, small and cosy, good for a family but would have felt a bit of squeeze for 4 adults. (There was just the two of us. The cottage is very clean and comfortable, and I appreciated that there was plenty of crockery and cutlery, not one of places that just gives you 4 of everything. Good wifi signal.<br/>The location is great, right in the centre near the seafront and about 200m from the Magpie Cafe. It was very quiet despite being right in the centre, but it’s not clear from the details that it’s up (and down) several flights of stone steps with cobbles in between. There’s a loading area just after the entrance to alley so it wasn’t too difficult unloading our stuff. I’d book it again for just the two of us.



Really clean and comfortable cottage right in the heart of Whitby just a few min walk to everything. It has a small garden that catches the sun for most of day so you can enjoy breakfast outside with a view of the Abbey (just :)). The only downside is that access is via a narrow path with steep stairs but it wasn't a major problem for us. We'd happily stay again.
