• About Bosun’s Cottage

    Enjoying an unrivalled position and stunning views over the sea, harbour entrance and beach, this award-winning cottage lies at the very eastern edge of Whitby yet only a 300-yard walk down cobbled streets to the harbour bridge. Sensitively rebuilt from a former old smoke house it offers a well designed spacious interior, double glazing and cosy heating. An ideal location whatever the season – in summer, for the beach just 100 yards from the door, and in winter, for the exhilarating drama of crashing waves and spectacular views. A traditional fishing town with a maritime heritage, Whitby boasts the Captain Cook Museum, craft and antique shops, galleries, jewellers selling the famous Whitby Jet, tea rooms, gourmet fish restaurants, pubs galore and a host of other attractions. Extensive walking can be enjoyed locally on the Cleveland Way cliffs top paths or surrounding moorlands whose pretty villages are also a delight to explore.

    Lovely comfortable cottage in a great location. The parking could be an issue if visitors have a bigger than average car or are not overly confident drivers due to a narrow archway & tight turning area. On departure the access via cooks cottage wasn't possible so this would have made access for the next holiday makers even more difficult.

    We enjoyed our stay, a lovely cottage with fabulous views. Not the best weather for us..but sea was great to watch from the windows and Whitby is always a great place to visit even when it's blowing a gale. Plenty of stuff to do if you like games/jigsaws etc and some nice places to eat in town.

    Lovely cottage in a perfect setting, access and parking rather tight and fire was only a gas fire not a log burner which we had particularly searched for when booking, but all in all a great place to stay would definitely recommend .

    The lounge carpet did not appear to have been hoovered effectively nor the master bedroom There was minimal instruction in the cottage The cottage is in a fantastic setting but the price reflects this

    Location is second to none and cottage itself is very comfortable. There's no wifi and parking is a bit tight, but that said we wanted a weeks get away from the rat race and didn't need the car all week as there's so much to do locally.

    Great location. Cottage well equipped and very comfortable. One of the best beds I have ever slept in. Getting cars to and from the cottage can be difficult on very narrow crowded streets but this is more than compensated by the location. All in all a wonderful short term break.

    Location of cottage very good. Comfort good and views from the cottage are wonderful. Equipment in the cottage could do with an update, one tea towel in the kitchen was poor and some towels were very thin, lack of a towel/soap in the downstairs cloakroom. Overall the holiday cottage was excellent for 4 adults and 3 children. Will book again.

    Lovely break, amazing views. Cottage very comfortable and suited to the size of the family (7). Only gripe no wifi, otherwise a near perfect holiday experience!

    Lovely cottage in a great location with plenty of room. Very good views of the sea and harbour. And only a few minutes from the sand. Great place for a family holiday

    Excellent venue, perfect location. For family of 6 (2 children, 2 parent, 2 grandparent) Bosun's Cottage offered everything we could have wanted. We will definitely be looking to book again!

    Beautiful cottage and best location in Whitby. Outstanding views. Would have benefited from wifi and could be better equipped e.g bath sheets; quantity and quality of kitchen equipment, crockery and glass. The hot water went off repeatedly while we were there
