Please note This property is situated next to the estuary which is fenced off and is 10 yards away. Children must be supervised at all times.\n\nMoon River Cottage is situated right next to the estuary in Whitby Harbour. You can sit on your own private terrace and watch the boats go by they are so close you can almost touch them as they sail past towards the sea. There is also a great view of the steam trains coming into the railway station. The North York Moors Steam Railway travels across the North York Moors from the pretty market town of Pickering calling off at Goathland the fictional village ’Aidensfield’ in the popular TV programme ’Heartbeat’ and travelling on to Whitby. Just a 5 minute walk and you are in the centre of Whitby in fact you could park your car and hardly use it all week there is so much to see and do right on your doorstep. The cottage has a terraced area to all three sides of the property so you can catch the sun all day and it has one of the best views in Whitby of the estuary leading out to sea and towards the abbey perched on the hill top. Whitby is a very popular seaside town with a lovely long sandy beach and a busy working harbour. The tourists flock each year to see the abbey made famous by Bram Stoker the author of Dracula the abbey being his inspiration for the book. Further north there’s the resorts of Sandsend and Staithes and to the south you will find Robin Hood’s Bay and Scarborough. It’s a great base to visit the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and the east coast. Beach ¾ mile. Shop 400 yards pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    Excellent location - walking distance to the town and one of the bedrooms has a good view of the Abbey. Parking is fantastic and the area was nice and quiet. Would happily go there again

    Overall we found that there was no local information available. There was little information on the cottage, the television was not available without fiddling with the controls. This despite numerous complaints by previous occupants. We are both in our 80's and the walk from the cottage to the bridge was fraught with danger due the work being carried out. Having got the bridge there was further walking beyond, and with inclement weather no means of shelter. The taps in the kitchen were so fierce you got soaked turning them on. The sink in the bathroom needed to be thoroughly cleaned. The double bed only allowed 6 inches either side. There was no bowl in the kitchen nor bucket or mop for the floor. Overall this was a disappointing holiday for us and one we not repeat.

    A lovely calm location, beautiful views, well placed for amenities but away from the hustle and bustle. Kitchen well equipped.

    The position of the accommodation is brilliant. However we ask for 2 sets of keys as there were 5 adults staying and we were doing stuff independently, we did not get any. There was no where to dry washed clothes. There was no way to hoover or sweep the floors, apart from a dustpan and brush. The bed in the double room was not comfortable and certainly creeked a lot when we moved which made for a disturbed nights sleep. Lastly the tv was unpredictable and the channels didn't always work, I know we weren't there to watch tv we were there to chill and a working tv (with the unpredictable weather) is a must. There was also no access to wi fi, with a teenager and 2 young adults this was difficult, especially in this day and age! So overall an amazing location however the lack of cleaning, drying and poor tv/wi fi service let it down unfortunately.
