The property

A delightful, modern, terraced cottage in a superb position in the ancient fishing port of Whitby. This charming 'upside down' Whitby cottage, warm and snug with quality furnishings, has an open plan living area with views towards the harbour and Whitby Abbey. This Whitby cottage offers very comfortable accommodation with a small, sunny front patio, and, rarely found in Whitby, private parking. Overlooking the railway, it is an absolute delight to watch the steam trains trundling by this Whitby cottage as they approach the station - appealing to both young and old! On the doorstep of this Whitby cottage are all the amenities of the town, including excellent pubs, restaurants, tea rooms and renowned fish and chips! Wander around the cobbled market square and harbour, explore the numerous quirky ginnels, or take a stroll on the long, sandy beaches.

    • “Lovely fabulous cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed for a week in Clickety clack cottage. It was decorated in a modern and clean way and has all modern amenities such as a dishwasher and washing machine. The children loved looking out for trains and watching the boats on the river esk. The beds were comfy and the bedrooms were spacious. The unconventional bunk beds were great.....the kids loved them especially the fact they weren't too high. The only downside was it was incredibly warm even without the heating on so the windows had to be always open but there was a large fan in the cottage we we used each day to cool the cottage down in the living area. The cottage has it's own parking space which was great and there is a small garden area to the back with a picnic table and washing line. The cottage is ideally placed for the town centre and beach. Both only 5 to 15 min walk away. Wonderful place to stay with children and very good value for money. We will def be back and looking forward to it!!x”

    • “Could not really fault Clickety Clack other than the heating was tooo hot! However we were able to switch it off/turn it down. The only other matter was an unpleasant drains smell in the downstairs bathroom. Other than that the cottage has everything you would want, the owners have good taste, given it a personal touch and also value comfort. Athough next to the railway, it was not intrusive and would be interesting when the Steam trains are running. The cottage is only 3 minutes walk from the supermarket and Whitbys main shops and attractions are a minute further on - although the cottage was in a peaceful postion. It also has some excellent walks from the door. We have been to Whitby many times but this has been the best accomodation, thank you! Would hope to go back sometime.”

    • “Parking in Whitby is an absolute premium, so an allocated space is brilliant. It's only a short walk into the town,and the co op is about 5 mins walk away. The location is incredible, and the views across the Esk are wonderful, and best of all it was a steam gala weekend, so we had steam trains past the window four times a day in each direction, with the runaround directly outside the window. Marvellous.By the end of the week we recognised the locos by the sound of their whistle! the cottage is 'upside down', meaning the best views are all from the living room/dining room area. The bedrooms are extremely quiet, with no street noise. the cottage was exceptionally well equipped with a comfortable bed. Everything was exceptionally clean, and well cared for. We would definitely come again, but it has to be a stay for people who like trains (unsurprisingly with the name!!). best to check the Nymr website before booking as steam trains don't always run.No faults, no problems whatsoever.”

    • “Close proximity to town, railway and bus stations, shops, amenities and sea was perfect but cottage location was still quiet and peaceful. Private parking was an added bonus. A delight to see the steam trains pass by from the windows. Even the weather was excellent.”

    • “This was as well appointed new house. Suitable for two adults and two children (although we only had one) Very clean and the owner was very helpful. Location was great, with stream trains passing close by during the day (but no bother/noise at night) Only 5 mins from central whitby on foot. I would certainly recommend.”

    • “A great cottage in a great location.”

    • “A superb cottage located in the heart of Whitby. With everything you could ever need within walking distance you won't need to take the car out. Everything you could ever need is supplied within the cottage (with the exception of towels) and being located adjacent to the whitby railway - it's a great place to see the North Yorkshire Moors Railway (avoid at all costs if you hate trains - the cottage is so close it vibrates as the large steam trains pass) - our toddler loved waving to the passengers as the train passed and waiting for the trains became a daily ritual. The only grumble being the hard mattress in the master bedroom - my wife and I woke up each morning feeling stiff and aching - but acknowledge that this is a personal thing so your milage may vary!”

    • “Lovely cottage with all mod cons. Views of Whitby and next to heritage railway line. Double glazed and centrally heated, 8 minutes walk from pubs and restaurants. However, it was spoiled by the inadequate lighting in the bathroom, and possibly the most uncomfortable pair of sofas I have ever sat on!”

    • “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Clickety-Clack Cottage, the cottage itself was all we could wish for, and the location could not be better. The centre of Whitby was not more than a 5 minute walk, also parking at the cottage was a big plus. My wife and I holiday in Whitby most years, so now for any future visits we shall look no further than Clickety-Clack for our base.”

    Mr Watton, Kingswinford, August 2015

    • “We liked the décor, cleanliness, views, location to town, parking and in fact everything about the cottage.”

    Mrs Tate, Bury St. Edmunds, September 2014

    • “Lovely comfortable cottage with the added entertainment of the passing trains. The weather was good which helped a lot”

    Mr Junge, Dereham, September 2014

    • “The cottage was excellently furnished, decorated and had all the things you need for a home away from home. We particularly enjoyed watching the trains and boats out of the living room window each day.”

    Miss Thompson, Nottingham, June 2014

    • “The upside down layout is brilliant as it gives you the chance to enjoy the view. Also the dual entrances give you the options to leave and return by either aspect.”
