A lovely house in a great location for Whitby.



The hosts were responsive and answered all queries, we had one issue where the fridge was tripping all electric but due to being nye they couldn’t get an engineer out to fix this but apart from this we had a great stay.



Brilliant place for a pleasant stay with a group social kitchen and dining area and great comms






Very good



It was 2 lovely nights staying with Host &Stay. Everything is noice and above our expectations. Thinking to come back again next few months



Lovely stay- thank you!



This was the first Airbnb I had booked that’s managed by a company rather than it being a persons home and it really showed, the house was clean where you would expect it to be, but it wasn’t maintained very well in other places. We had a few issues and Host and Stay were quick to respond but the general cleanliness/upkeep of the house was lacking. On the first day we got there the freezer had been left open and was completely frozen so that it wouldn’t shut, this was rectified the next day by one of their team. The last night we were there the TV and bracket fell off the wall, which we reported and was hopefully fixed in time for the next guests. <br/>The house was in a fantastic location and was a short drive away from Whitby. <br/>My only advice would be to read the t&c’s fully before confirming your booking.



The property was spacious and luxurious in every way and the location was fabulous<br/>Only point to make would be there needs to be more glassware (small glasses) and salad bowls etc. Massive kitchen but not enough pots and pans etc. Had to give my 3 year a drink in a pint glass as there was nothing smaller



beds uncomfortable no oven gloves or small glass tumblers Some of the plates and cutlery not really clean Not everybody as qr reader so no printed instructions<br/>great location easy parking



Spacious, attractive and clean accommodation for 6 adults. In a great location for visiting Whitby and other local places of interest. Comfortable beds in lovely bedrooms.<br/>Small, basic changes, several of which have been mentioned in past reviews, would make this accommodation perfect...<br/>Supplying a pair of oven gloves, supplying a hand towel in the kitchen and downstairs toilet, supplying a large 4th pan in the kitchen as the 2 small and 1 larger pan are inadequate for cooking for up to 7 people, supplying 7 small tumbler glasses for breakfast etc as only wine, flute and 4 pint glasses are provided, removing the large weeds on the back patio as they spoil an attractive property.



The house had tons of space had everything we needed and more plenty of parking spaces the property was modern in design

Fantastic place to stay, beautifil inside and out in a lovely quiet village. Highly recommend!



the property lay out was good and the bedrooms were all a good size<br/>the garden could do with some attention



This was a great place to stay for a couple of nights in a beautiful location in a small village outside Whitby, for 6 adults, a child and a dog! The rooms were all spacious for the couples and had ensuites which was great. The downstairs room main living room and kitchen area again very spacious and a lovely place to chill on an evening. Kitchen was well equipped and had everything you needed apart from oven gloves but made do with a tea towel.<br/>All rooms were spotless on arrival so can’t fault the cleanliness. Would definitely recommend.



This was like a home from home. So clean and tidy and everything brand new. The downstairs space was perfect for everyone to relax and spend time - such a nice added bonus with the bi-fold doors to open and enjoy the garden space. Really have no faults with the house. We absolutely loved it and would definitely stay again. Plenty of parking for 3 cars. <br/>The location was perfect for a staycay in Whitby - we used the park and ride service which was only 5 minutes drive away. The nearby village was beautiful and the estate where the house was situated was so quiet and peaceful. <br/>Highly recommend!



Suited our needs perfectly and would book again..



It was a beautiful home, exactly as described. We were all very comfortable and the amenities were exactly as described.



There was a real wow factor when we went into the property. So much space and a fabulous design throughout the whole building. It was a lovely comfortable space. The bedrooms were really great too, especially the master bedroom. <br/>Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here and will definitely book to come back again.<br/>I found getting into the key box a bit of a challenge but this could just have been me!<br/>The shower in the bathroom on the first floor was a little small and I am 5'3" The bathroom had a notable chemical smell. Possibly because there are no external windows in this room.<br/>The garden patio needs to be weeded and the edges of the lawn could do with trimming. Also at the front, there are quite a few weeds growing up and a rather large thistle waiting to attack you on the garage drive This is just a small thing, but I think worth mentioning, especially as this is such a lovely property inside. It would be a shame for the garden to let the place down.



Excellent location, very spacious, bedrooms and living space were clean and tidy, great communication from the hosting company<br/>The kitchen was very clean but some of the pans were dirty and in poor condition so could not be used



Suited our needs perfectly and would book again..



Beautiful stay just a 5 minute drive from Whitby which was exactly what we were looking for.<br/><br/>House was in great condition and as described so our two family’s (4 adults, 3 children) were able to share the whole house together.<br/><br/>Everything worked perfect from Wi-Fi (essential for the kids) to all the kitchen, bathroom appliances.<br/><br/>EV charger was a great addition although we did have to clarify that we could use it as the listing said we could but the guide which comes a week ahead of the stay said otherwise (this needs updating). However Host & Stay were responsive to our question and we were able to use it.<br/><br/>Would stay again if in the area!



stunning property!<br/>nothing! everything was exceptional



Great for family stays, lovely open plan area to gather in and share meals. Easy public transport links in to Whitby without having to worry about parking.






Beautiful house, spacious, clean and well set out, secure garden. Loved it!



very uncluttered, spacious, excellent bath/shower rooms, good facilities (including tumble dryer), clean and comfortable. Excellent all round.<br/>Nothing to dislike.



The place was very nice and clean before arrival.<br/><br/>But we were very disappointed with the lack of help from the host. We were given less than a quarter of a washing up liquid bottle, when we asked for one we were told it was provided before check-in which was not true. We also asked for dishwasher tablets which were not provided but there was a dishwasher there. Again we were told nothing could be done about that. General things like handwash, kitchen tissues, toilet roll, bin bags, you will probably have to take it yourself as they only give 1/2 of each.



Lovely accommodation with everything you need. Lovely location, helpful and responsive host.



Fantastic property! Incredibly spacious! Better than the photos.<br/><br/>Great base for the local area. We stayed as a family of 6 (4 adults 2 children).<br/><br/>The cottage was well equipped, cosy, clean and spacious. The additional cleaning bill you pay when booking did come as a shock, however it meant we could relax a bit on holiday.<br/><br/>Garden was ideal. Beautiful views and felt very private. Great for our two dogs to have a sniff about before their walks.<br/><br/>Our only issues...The stair carpet reaching up to the attic room is in need of fixing...it has come away from its carpet grips and is a danger. I'm sure this can be easily rectified.<br/><br/>Comfortable beds in TWO of the rooms, however the double bed in the attic room is unsuitable for adults.<br/>As soon as you sat on the mattress you sunk down onto a very hard base. In the end, two adults had to switch bedrooms and this bed was given to one child.<br/>The single bed felt much the same, but luckily this was also used by a child.<br/><br/>Overall, a fantastic stay!



Great stay. Superb property.



The house was an amazing space and we loved the layout and room sizes. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need for a few days away. It was in a great location for Whitby and Sandsend.






tasteful decoration and very clean<br/>sofas a little uncomfortable



the house is amazing, and the location handy for Whitby as its 5mins drive away. very quite location with parking for 4 cars if you use the garage as 3 driveway spots.<br/><br/>Great location for a family get together as the living room,kitchen and dining room qll being combined makes the room huge. plus if staying in the summer the patio can be opened up also






Had a lovely weekend away with family, the house was very clean, warm and comfortable, and had everything we needed. In a good location to visit Whitby, Sandsend, Saltburn by the Sea, Goathland and other places in North Yorkshire.



great location and lots of space in the house for large family get together<br/>parking of cars at houses next door was an issue



Large, new property with easy access to the whole of the North Yorkshire coast and everything you need for a relaxing break for the whole family, young and old



Although this is a modern and very pleasant property we felt that this isn't being maintained to a very high standard. The downstairs taps sent water flying everywhere when turned on too much, we had power cuts due to a faulty fuse and they don't provide oven gloves meaning that cooking was a nightmare leaving several members of our party burned. Be prepared!



Great stay, lovely property in a good location. The open plan living area is fantastic for families along with the bedroom layout. Would recommend a stay here.



space style , location



beautiful property<br/>nothing






spacious, modern, clean and quiet



Beautiful house and furnishings. Big enough for two families easily. Outdoor space. Near Whitby but away from the crazy busy.<br/>Two key things - 1. The wifi didn’t work and I thought the hosts took far too long to respond to<br/>messages etc. My husband was assuming he could work a bit while there and without wifi (and no phone signal) this was impossible and so cost us money.<br/>2. No spare bedding (that we could find). We travelled with 3 under 8s and needed replacement bed linen one night and couldn’t find any. This left us washing and tumble drying in the middle of the night and having to put kids in beds to share while we waited for the linen to dry. For a house apparently aimed at families this seems like a very obvious thing to need!



We had a great few days in this modern house; it was very well equipped. Great location for Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay. Lovely riverside bar/cafe/miniature railway in the next village of Ruswarp. Butchers in Sleights was very good.



Loved this property it was perfect for our weekend stay - 3 generations and 3 dogs. The beds were really comfortable. The property was lovely, very spacious and the garden centre at the end of the road was perfect for lunch/breakfast - we went for both!<br/>Would benefit from some oven gloves as we had to improvise with a teatowel. We were aware that there was no wifi before we arrived however I think it would be absolutely faultless if it had the benefit of wifi. All in all a great stay in a beautiful house in a gorgeous north yorkshire village close to Whitby.



Beware when booking there is a £125 cleaning bill added to your final bill. <br/>Although mainly clean , it was not spotless. <br/>I had to re clean the fridge and toilet . My husband cut his foot on a shard of glass in the main en suite . Bird poo was all over the bifolds which were not locking correctly ( we notified owners ).<br/>No WiFi and generally phone signal is very poor.<br/>No welcome pack only a pint of milk, coffee, tea and cleaning gear. <br/>Weeds on patio area outside. <br/>I sound very picky but this was not cheap accommodation.<br/>On a positive note , the open plan layout works very well. All double bedrooms had bathrooms in easy reach and furnishings are very new and modern . Location is good , no noise from roads.<br/>We had a lovely weekend but would not stay here again , I feel this is overpriced especially the £125 cleaning bill !



A perfect holiday home, nice and quiet, clean and cannot fault, would love to stay again.<br/>No mobile signal









This property was exactly as described on the website, spacious, clean and well equiped, with off street parking for 2 large or at push 3 small cars. Its very convenient for Whitby and North Yorkshire in general, we would be happy to stay again if returning to the area.



House was roomy and beautifully decorated. Everything we needed and parking straight outside.<br/>The only fault was there was no WiFi



We had a lovely weekend for our daughters birthday. The house was what we needed. The space downstairs was amazing. The single room is very small but the rest of the rooms are a good size. <br/>Plenty of cupboards space to put bags and shoes. <br/>We will be booking to come back. The only thing we would have found useful is some Outdoor seating, to enjoy the views and the weather.






Excellent property in a lovely village location.House had everything you could wish for,very spacious and modern,lots of extras in the kitchen dishwasher,washer drier etc.lovely decor .Had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend.<br/>If there was anything to improve on it would be not enough storage for hanging clothes in the bedrooms and the mattress in the top floor bedroom is not comfortable.



This is a beautiful house which is deceptively large - plenty of space and bathrooms and in excellent condition.<br/>It was our first AirBnB with an agency host, and it lacked that personal connection I am used to on booking. As soon as we’d done the deal we received auto requests for passports and photos to an app, along with lots of unfriendly injunctions about recouping costs if damage/noise etc etc. not the perfect first encounter, and no where near as personable as I am used to with AirBNB hosts.<br/>Not sure if this is the new standard.<br/>The house had no Wi-Fi and no mobile signal- but the bumph said high speed internet was standard in all host and stay properties.<br/>We paid £150 for cleaning but still received messages about the cleaning we needed to do before checking out.<br/>And finally- get check out time. Is it really necessary to get us out at 10am when check in isn’t before 3pm? We would have preferred a later check out on Sunday morning and felt a bit hurried out.<br/>But a beautiful house in a super spot.



Lovely property and great location , just perfect !






Super, spacious property, finished to a very good standard. Comfy beds and plenty of bathrooms for us. Nice, quiet residential location. Close to some nice local shops eg bakery and butchers round the corner in Sleights. An excellent base for exploring Whitby and the North Yorkshire coast and moors.



We stayed at Ugglesby House between Christmas and New Year and it was such a lovely trip. The house was very new with beautiful decor and modern kitchen and bathrooms. It was spotless on our arrival and the communication from Host & Stay was excellent throughout the trip; answering any questions we had and even making suggestions for local dog-friendly pubs! The location was idyllic, beautiful scenary and walks on our doorstep and close proximity to Whitby and the coast. We highly recommend The Plough pub at the neighbouring village Sleights and White Rose Taxis in Whitby, both of which were happy to accommodate our dog!
