Travel cot and highchair. Welcome pack.\n\n Enclosed courtyard with garden furniture. Private parking for 2 cars. No smoking.\n\nA delightful cottage situated in the very popular village of Newholm Halfway House is a great base to visit Whitby the east coast and the North York Moors National Park. Just over 3 miles to the centre of Whitby this semi-detached property is perfect for visiting the town centre yet is within a tranquil and pictureque village location. Halfway House has a welcoming wood burner for those cosy evenings by the fire and it also retains many of its original features. To the rear of the property is a private courtyard area where you can catch the sun throughout most of the day.\n\nFrom the cottage it’s just less than 2 miles to the wonderful beach at Sandsend offering some fantastic walks along the cliff tops which form part of the Cleveland Way. Whitby is popular throughout the year with its cobbled streets and 199 steps leading up to the abbey which was the inspiration for the author of the Dracula books and where you can enjoy the view along the coastline to Robin Hood’s Bay. The town centre has an array of bars restaurants and local pubs and is still a very busy fishing harbour. For those of you who enjoy walking the Cinder Track runs for over 20 miles from Whitby to Scarborough. This used to be the old railway track and is used by many walkers and cyclists. From Whitby you can catch the steam train on the North York Moors Railway which takes you to Goathland the fictional village of Aidensfield in the ever-popular TV programme Heartbeat. Staying on the train will take you to the market town of Pickering. Beach 2 miles. Shop pub and restaurant 1 mile. " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/106/840/10667422.jpg UK10730

    Lovely cottage, extras on arrival for humans and dogs most welcome. Nice and quiet, enclosed garden, comfy beds. Good job they had 4 oil filled radiators though as otherwise all heating via woodburner. Good location to walk to Whitby and Sandsend direct from cottage. Low score for local amenities only due to fact only ones are the pub which was closed and the tea rooms, but we didn't pick the cottage based on amenities.

    We have just had a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage, it had everything we needed plus extras, even dog treats and toys. We wanted a location that was quiet and a quick drive to local beaches, it was perfect. We will definitely be back 😁😁

    Great location. Comfortable beds. It's got everything you need. Could be chilly down stairs the tiled floors make it a bit cold. Take good slippers. Lovely once the house is warm.

    Very cute little cottage,very comfortable.Downside at this time of year was the heating, small radiators and larger ones run off the log burner which we couldn't get to work properly. Also you have to purchase your own logs which cost a small fortune

    Lovely cottage,spacious, clean and comfortable. Heating a problem if the weather is cold as log burner feeds the 3 radiators and only if the burner is burning fiercely. No cupboard space at all for food. The above are minor irritations but be aware that in winter guests will be buying a bag of wood for each evening to keep the main room warm. We were there in October and that is what we were using just at night as we were out all day. We would definitely revisit Halfway house as the house and location are great but not in the depths of winter.

    Loved staying in this cottage. Very comfortable. In a quiet, rural setting with sheep in the field behind the cottage when we stayed. Just what we were looking for. Closest public footpath next door to adjoining cottage and other footpaths nearby. Equipment wise there was everything we needed, but we would have appreciated somewhere to keep food supplies as all cupboards in the kitchen were full or locked. We used the electric heater in the living room which was fine. If you stay in winter though be aware that the heating system runs from the log burner. On a downside we arrived to find the wheelie bin overflowing with rubbish 😕. Couldn’t find any information on when the bins had to go out. Tried to contact Yorkshire Holidays but only got an answerphone on a Saturday morning. Although everywhere looked reasonably clean on arrival the outside of the toilet bowl had obviously been missed when the cleaning was done! Felt really at home in this cottage and would definitely return.

    Kitchen utensils limited (only 3 forks) - installation of out side light at rear would be beneficial - mice seen regularly outside around the wood store - loud scratching heard in kitchen roof-space (not mice) 😱 - shower riser rail requires attention- otherwise lovely comfortable cottage very dog friendly - shame about the weather☔️☔️

    Halfway House is in a lovely quiet location, and has been renovated to a high standard. The garden is secure - always a bonus for those holidaying with dogs. The only (slight) downsides were the lack of several key kitchen utensils, and the fact the central heating appeared dependent on the wood burner in the lounge running consistently at a high firing rate. After the first evening we didn't bother with it again.

    Quiet location perfect for a relaxing break yet within easy reach of Whitby
