The Property

A fabulous traditional, semi-detached, red brick former farmhouse, situated between a caravan park and secondary school, on the edge of the historic town of Whitby. Finished to a high standard throughout, this impressive Whitby cottage is ideal for families and friends to enjoy time together in a beautiful part of the country. Upstairs in this Whitby cottage are four tastefully-styled bedrooms, two boasting en-suite facilities, and all with views reaching over open countryside or towards Whitby Abbey. With a contemporary bathroom and a ground floor WC, this Whitby cottage provides excellent facilities for all the family, with plenty of room to spread out! Full of character, combining original features with modern comforts, this Whitby cottage offers a country-style, spacious, beamed kitchen with a central dining table and a warming woodburning stove. With additional comfy seating, this inviting room is a lovely sociable area, where you can linger over a leisurely meal and discuss the next day's activities. The large, bright and airy sitting room in this Whitby cottage has another cosy woodburning stove set in a feature fireplace, whilst patio doors open onto the sheltered, sunny rear garden, a lovely spot for relaxing. Walkers will delight in the public footpath running past the property, which leads into woods and onto the Esk Valley Walk. The nearby disused railway, known as the Cinder Track, runs for twenty three miles from Whitby to Scarborough, ideal for walkers, cyclists, and horse riders. A few minutes’ walk from this Whitby cottage brings you into the very centre of this atmospheric seaside town, with an abundance of eateries, local inns and independent shops lining its quaint, narrow streets. Tempt the taste buds with delicious fish and chips, or enjoy cocktails and oysters in one of the bars overlooking the harbour. With its long sandy beaches, complete with donkey rides and kiosks selling ice-cream and candy floss, Whitby is a children's haven, while other family members may enjoy the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, the Pannett Art Gallery, Whitby Abbey, and the pretty gardens in Pannett Park. With the dramatic coastline to explore, and the stunning scenery of the North York Moors to discover, this wonderful area has something for everyone.
