So who are we at Eighteen97?
Who are the faces behind Eighteen97 B&B in Goathland, Whitby, North Yorkshire?
We are Tim and Fiona Gardham and we have owned and run Eighteen97 since 2014. And we don’t mind telling you it was rather hard work renovating our beautiful old cottage into the 5 star boutique B&B it is today! We had previously renovated and opened the only 5 star accredited B&B in Whitby, we must be gluttons for punishment! With Tims’ background in professional photography and mine in business to business account management we can pretty much cover most aspects of running a successful small business, which has been very useful.
Of course one of the wonderful things about our job is the people we meet. We were exceptionally lucky to have such a great following at our previous B&B and when we opened Eighteen97 it was so lovely that the first people through the doors we old guests. Today almost 70% of our guests have stayed with us before, in fact they are are more like old friends! It’s a great compliment that they return time and time again to enjoy our relaxed offering here at Eighteen97.
