A splendid third floor apartment, in a modern development overlooking the harbour, close to the town centre of Whitby. Light and airy throughout, this lovely holiday apartment is a wonderful alternative to a Whitby cottage, providing excellent family accommodation, with the added benefit of private parking and lift access to the accommodation itself. The rooms of this Whitby apartment are furnished and decorated in a contemporary style and the spacious open plan living area has superb views over the River Esk and upper harbour. With a well-equipped kitchen and two tasteful bedrooms, this Whitby apartment offers a very comfortable holiday home. Outside, the communal lawned grounds are well-kept and there are riverside walks to enjoy from the complex. An easy walk from your Whitby accommodation brings you to the centre of this atmospheric seaside port, with its long, sandy beaches, cobbled market square and quaint, narrow streets. Climb the 199 steps to the famous abbey or take a bracing cliff-top walk with magnificent views. For the brave at heart, partake in an evening ghost walk, or hire one of the brightly coloured beach huts and just relax. With a wealth of activities in the area, including the steam railway, the pretty market towns of Pickering and Helmsley and coastal villages such as Staithes and Robin Hood’s Bay, there is plenty to occupy everyone on your holiday in Whitby. A lovely Whitby apartment for an enjoyable break.

Very comfortable modern apartment. Nice and warm which was definitely necessary in December with the snow outside! Good central location within walking distance of everything in Whitby.
