The Property

A fabulous terraced Whitby cottage, centrally located yet quietly tucked away in the centre of this popular, historic seaside port. Sympathetically restored to a high standard, this Grade ll listed, former jet worker's cottage is ideal for couples or small families wishing to enjoy the many attractions this quaint and charming town has to offer. Cosy and characterful, this Whitby cottage retains original beams, as well as steep, winding cottage stairs and sloping ceilings. Providing comfortable accommodation, this quaint cottage in Whitby has an open plan living area with a quality kitchen, breakfast bar and comfy seating. Furnished and decorated with a contemporary feel throughout, this stylish Whitby cottage remains warm and inviting, with two tasteful bedrooms and a modern shower room. A two-minute walk from this Whitby cottage brings you into the hustle and bustle of this atmospheric town, with restaurants, pubs, tea rooms and independent shops all on the doorstep. Explore the cobbled streets and market square, climb the 199 steps up to the abbey and admire the breathtaking views, or stroll down to the picturesque harbour and the long, sandy beaches. The Captain Cook Memorial Museum is well worth visiting, as is Pannet Park with its art gallery and lovely floral displays. The more energetic will enjoy a bracing clifftop walk on the Cleveland Way, or take an hour’s walk along the beach to the small village of Sandsend, where a well-earned coffee awaits you at the end! With the dramatic coastline and the spectacular North York Moors National Park to discover, this Whitby cottage is an excellent base.
