Details

You are assured of a warm and friendly welcome from your hosts, Kevin and Carol. With their aim to make your stay a pleasant and an enjoyable one, offering comfortable accommodation and high standard of service to make you feel relaxed and at home. Holmliegh are proud to say that many of our guests regard them as "home from home" returning time and time again for short breaks and weekly stays which is testimony to the unique informal style of hospitality that is given.

Holmleigh is an ideal base for short breaks and long stays as they offer all their guests the convenience of free private parking on our premises until the end of their stay. Visitors will also be able to use your car throughout your stay as you will have the assurance of a parking space on your return. With Whitby being such a popular and busy tourist destination this is a valuable benefit not available at many other Guest Houses in the area. On your arrival you will l be able to park your car free of charge at the guesthouse leaving you stress free and ready to enjoy your holiday. The town centre is only a few minutes' walk away with its many varied tourist attractions and amenities.

The vast majority of visitors to Whitby do not realise how much there is to see and do in the area and would have booked a longer stay if they had known. Holmleigh offer great value for money rates including a free night stay for weekly bookings and special mid week rates for short breaks between Sundays and Thursdays. Along with free parking, no surcharges for payments by credit and debit cards, free wifi connection and those little extra personal touches, Kevin and Carol endeavour to provide consistent value for money for their guests.

Many events and festivals take place in the town on most weekends throughout the year including the hugely popular Gothic Weekends, Whitby Folk Week and the Regatta and Carnival. The many activities to be enjoyed in and around Whitby include walking, cycling, fishing, sailing, bowling, fossil hunting and golf which are all close by. For those dining out there is a fantastic range of places to eat including pubs, restaurants, bistros and hotels plus a choice of traditional fish and chips.

For those preferring a more traditional seaside holiday, there are three miles of sandy beaches and lots of activities and attractions for all ages including the North Yorkshire Moors Heritage Steam Railway. The nearby smugglers' coves of Robin Hood's Bay, Runswick Bay and Staithes can be accessed on foot via the Cleveland Way National Footpath. There are also many opportunities to explore the surrounding countryside by taking leisurely drives or train rides through the stunning scenery of the North York Moors to remote moorland villages. Here you will find Goathland, better known as "Aidensfield" and traditional country inns serving real ale and food. For shopaholics the seaside resorts of Scarborough, Bridlington and Filey and the market towns of Pickering, Malton and Helmsley are all within easy reach.

Reviews

    Mature / Senior Couple Mrs Helen Berrisford
    Urmston, United Kingdom
    18 April 2015
    Rated as 5 out of 5

    “A very friendly and comfortable experience.”

    The room was light and airy with pleasant views. The bed was extremely comfortable with crisp white bed linen. There were adequate towels, a large enough shower/ toilet room. The television worked perfectly and there was a double settee so that if one person went to bed, the other could sit on the settee and watch t.v. There was sufficient tea/coffee in the room with mugs (not silly little cups). The breakfast was more than adequate with a variety of cereals, fruit and fruit juice as well as a large cooked breakfast. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We would certainly consider staying there again.
