Big thank you, hope to be back in Feb. Five Star



Spinnaker far exceeds it's pictures and description on the internet. We were looking for somewhere special for our honeymoon and definitely found it. From the wonderful card, champagne and chocolates from Liz & Edward down to the way the dining table was set, was the beginning of a lovely break. The views from the bay window were breath-taking. We have enjoyed our stay so much we booked another night whilst here!!

Would definitely return again.

Jackie & Adam - 'Newly-weds' !!

Thank you for a lovely week, the apartment is lovely to stay in and very comfortable. Great views from the window. We'll be back soon I'm sure.

The Moran Family

Thank you for a truly memorable week. We enjoyed a daily 15 minute stroll to the harbourside just to watch the world go by. A first class experience from start to finish!

John & Mei Li

We have stayed in many cottages/ houses in Whitby over the years. This is an absolutely gorgeous flat with superb views over the estuary, I sat every morning at the window with cuppa / knitting / book - perfect! The apartment has been meticulously planned with top notch fittings and attention to detail. Lovely to come home to every day, we enjoyed watching the Olympics on the huge telly. We love Whitby and Whitehall!!

Annie, Alan, Ryan & Liam

Had a wonderful two week break at Whitby. Spinnaker has been a delightful apartment to stay in with a great view of the harbour with a pleasant walk to the beach each day, a great holiday - would definitely come back here :-)

Hayley, John, Sam & Jack

We've very much enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. please can we take the view home with us?

The Allenby Family

The apartment lives up to it's description in the brochure, if not exceeds it. Without doubt the view from the bay window must be one of the finest in Whitby. We have thoroughly enjoyed our week here and would like to thank Liz and Edward for their kindness and patience in helping us over the Christmas period finding out how things worked!

What a stunning apartment, complete and utter luxury. A wonderful 70th Birthday present for my husband. We will certainly recommend it to all our family and friends. Hope to be back again this year. Thank you for a lovely week.

Gina & Dave Price, Derby

Staying in Whitehall was our Christmas present to ourselves and it didn’t disappoint!  We’ve loved being here – it is so luxurious and so relaxing.  A world away from the commercialism and stress of Christmas.

I am sure that Thomas Turnbull the first and second would have approved of what you have done with the house.  Thomas the first especially was an entrepreneur with sound business sense so he would be supportive.  Thomas Turnbull the second was a craftsman and he would appreciate the hard work, creativity and workmanship that has been applied.

As a direct descendant, it’s been a real privilege to stay here and see Whitby through their eyes.  I shall certainly recommend my (many) cousins come and stay.

Debbie and Philip, Darlington
