Getting around

Guests have arrived via public transport, but in reality the best way to get around is arriving in a car. Bus service to Whitby (South) or Middlesborough (North) is every 30 mins during the week. Taxi to Whitby is around £20 (4 seater)

Interaction with guest

A week or so before your arrival I'll send an email welcome pack, which has access details (keysafe in yard) and info on the cottage, and the amenities the village and the locality has to offer. We live some way away, but you can call us, and we have local contacts in the unlikely event of a property issue during your stay.
