• About Bosun’s Cottage

    Sea views 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.

    Well equipped cottage. Cosy & comfortable, very spacious. Superb location. Cleanliness could have been much better. Food cupboards and cutlery draw needed wiping out and under the sofas was thick with dust. The travel cot supplied was not fit for purpose and we had to improvise to make it comfortable for our granddaughter to sleep in. Such a shame because this cottage could have 5 star potential.

    Excellent cottage. Only problem I had was not having a blind on the bedroom roof window but that’s only because I’m paranoid about people looking in from the churchyard above.

    So pleased we chose Bosun's Cottage for our recent trip to Whitby. We could not have asked for better views.

    This is a great cottage in a great location. I would have liked more information, for example, how the central heating works, when to put out rubbish/recycling and where. There was no information book in the house that we could find.

    The best view in Whitby! We loved being able to see the sea from the living room and front bedrooms, and the bedroom at the top was lovely. It was great for my elderly father as there was a loo on every floor. I would definitely come here again for a family holiday.

    Lovely cottage with great views,comfortable beds and good kitchen equipment,all in all a good place to stay,just a shame we had to leave a day early due to my husbands health,only down side the boiler stopped working on Saturday, I did leave a message on our return home.

    Bosuns cottage was spacious, location ok but no outside space and the access to the cottage difficult up the narrow road. The cottage was noisy inside due to the ill fitting internal doors with rubbish latches. The floors where very noisy especially the ground floor with the cheap laminate on it. There was obviously little or no sound insulation between the floors,terrible if you are trying to be quiet with young children in bed. Bathrooms needed updated and the heating/hot water had a mind of its own. Fire blanket for the stove not really accessible above the fridge freezer and the kitchen although spacious was not pleasant to work in. Not value for money and would never stay here again. Thankful that we were only three adults and 2 young children.
