Rates, Dates & Booking

With lock-down now at an end we can now take bookings for Wynd Cottage. Whitby is open and ready to welcome visitors. It may be a little different with social distancing and other measures in place but it is still Whitby. Businesses are open, many offering takeouts and deliveries making self catering an excellent option. Please adhere to Government guidelines to protect both yourselves and the local community.

Book Wynd Cottage with confidence. We are, for now, changing our normal cancellation policy. We will give full refunds at any time before your stay if you can't make it due to Covid 19 regulations (eg. you or a member of your booking party are showing Covid 19 symptoms or advised to isolate, or where you reside or Whitby itself becomes subject to a local lock-down)

We look forward to hearing from you.

All the best,
Andy and Wendy

Please read through the cottage details carefully before booking.

Towels are not provided, although this can be arranged for a small extra charge, please enquire at the time of booking.

The cottage is cleaned by ourselves. Bedding is laundered by ourselves and washed in biological detergent with fabric conditioner, it is line dried where possible and ironed as a final inspection. Neither our home or tumble drier is fluff or lint free but we strive to do our best. If this is likely to cause a problem for any member of your party, please feel free to bring your own or mention at the time of booking and we will try to accommodate your individual needs.

To BOOK or enquire please contact us:

The owners cannot be held responsible for changes beyond their control, which may become known after publication.
Whilst we describe property as non-smoking this cannot be guaranteed. The descriptions of the cottage details the amenities that the property normally has available but generally does not state what is not included.

However, it is hereby agreed and declared that all reasonable endeavours will be used to resolve the dispute arising between you and The Owners without immediate recourse to litigation. If not mutually resolved, it is further agreed that all reasonable endeavours will be used to resolve the dispute by a formally recognised alternative dispute resolution process i.e. mediation, arbitration or expert determination. In default of such agreement, the process and appointment of the independent professional will be determined by the President for the time being of the Law Society or the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. In either case, all parties will contribute equally to the expense of such process, and, in default these expenses shall be capable of being recovered in any subsequent litigation.

The Hiring Contract is made on the understanding that the property and its facilities as published will be available for the dates stated. In the unlikely event that a property is not available through events arising outside the control of The Owner, then The Owners may be forced to cancel the booking. The Hirer will be advised as early as possible.
Cancellation by The Owners will entitle the Hirer to a refund of all monies paid. The Hirer will not as a result have any further claims against The Owner.
