The Property

This attractive, mid-terraced Victorian property is a short walk from the centre of the popular seaside town of Whitby. Set over three floors, this Whitby cottage provides excellent accommodation for families to enjoy the many attractions this historic port has to offer. With a modern interior, but retaining some original features, this Whitby cottage offers a light and spacious sitting room with timber floors and a bay window with wood panelling. Enhanced by a cosy woodburner and comfy seating, it is warm and welcoming. The flagged hallway in this Whitby cottage, leads into the galley-style kitchen and a charming flagged dining room with fireplace and high ceilings. With three tasteful bedrooms and a slightly quirky bathroom with a freestanding bath and walk-in shower, it makes an interesting holiday home. From this Whitby cottage, a short stroll brings you into the heart of this bustling town, with quaint cobbled streets, a picturesque harbour and long, sandy beaches. With numerous restaurants and tea rooms to sample and lots to visit, including Whitby Abbey, Captain Cook's Museum, Pannett Park and the Dracula Experience, there is something for everyone. The surrounding North York Moors and the pretty coastal villages, such as Staithes and Robin Hood's Bay are well worth visiting, as is a trip on the renowned steam railway from Grosmont. A well-placed Whitby cottage for a holiday at any time of the year.

The cottage was in a superb location, very close to the harbour, shops and restaurants. The owners have clearly spent a lot of time and effort to get the house looking and feeling very welcoming and we felt very much at home here. There was plenty of information about places to visit, both local and further afield, along with a very good selection of books, DVDs and games. An excellent cottage and we would thoroughly recommend this to anyone wishing to visit Whitby.

Had a fabulous long weekend. House was great for three mums and three babies in travel cots. Loved the four poster bed and roll top bath!

The house is very warm and comfortable. Loved the wood-burner and the Victorian bath. Great standard overall.
