The property

A delightful terraced fisherman's cottage, tucked away in a quiet yard off one of the old cobbled streets of Whitby.

This quaint Yorkshire cottage is full of character and has been lovingly restored, retaining original features such as beams and a feature fireplace.

It is furnished and decorated to a high standard, and has a spacious basement kitchen, cosy sitting room and two traditional bedrooms.

Set back from bustling Church Street, this cottage in Whitby is just a few minutes' stroll from the town’s numerous tea rooms, shops, restaurants and pubs, and the yard the cottage is situated in featured in BBC One’s three-part series ‘Secret Britain’.

Within a two minute walk is the quiet beach of Tate Hill Sands and the foot of the 199 steps to the famous Whitby Abbey.

Taste the wonderful fish and chips and work them off with an exhilarating cliff-top walk!

Relax on the long, sandy beaches or discover the dramatic North York Moors, the spectacular coastline and the many pretty villages in the immediate area.

A lovely Whitby cottage for a year-round break.
