For the Whitby Gothic Weekend this year I stayed with some friends at Amber Cottage. It's a compact, comfortable and utterly delightful little house. It has very good heating, a reasonable shower and Sky (FreeSat) TV! It's ideal for a small family or group like us.
The only downsides are that there is very patch mobile coverage (none at all if you're with Vodafone. T-Mobile seems to be fine though) and there's no door between the lounge, the hall and the top bedroom. But I'm really struggling to find anything negative to say about it.
I'm hoping to go back. Many times.
