Maplebeck is a lovely cottage situated on the banks of the river Esk a mile from Whitby centre.Fully kitted out with everything you could need and great attention to detail, nice touches include masses of information on the area and binuculars. Excellent position for wildlife watching,every day we watched Herons, Cormorants & Dippers feeding on the river. Twice a solitary seal came floating past which was a pleasant suprise. Ducks, Geese and Herring Gulls came calling daily for their feed
Excellent holiday, highly recommended

Everything that we required was provivded Maplebeck is a fantastic place to stay, the location is out of this world, its right next to the river Esk and the ducks and geese come calling on the patio every morning to be fed.
Its only a short walk over the viaduct into Whitby maybe 2 miles or so, but a very pleasant walk.

My partner and I have holidayed in Whitby for the last five years, but this was our fist holiday rental experience, and what an experience!
The cottage is located in a stunning and peaceful location, at the foot of the amazing viaduct, on the edge of the River Esk. This immaculate home, (and that's how it felt, like home), with excellent facilties, held a host of pleasantries; beautiful decor, stunning views, the most comfortable bed, (best sleep ever!), and not least the bottle of wine chilling in the fridge, and the inviting cookies beside the kettle! Not to mention the thoughtfully prepared, and extremely useful, albums filled with information about the local area, and it's attractions.
The walk along the viaduct, reveals stunning views and would also be highly recommended.
For a totally relaxing, peaceful, stressfree holiday, in an utterly breathtaking location, I could not recommend Maplebeck cottage enough.
