    “We had a wonderful, and much needed, holiday in Whitby staying at Herons Reach in the Autumn.”

    After the year we had, intending to go abroad, we decided it was safer to have a "staycation" and we weren't disappointed. The location has exactly like in the photos with a picturesque view of the old rail viaduct crossing the River Esk. The viaduct makes a lovely, and deceptively quick, walking route into the main town. In the opposite direction, it is the quickest route by foot to Robin Hood's Bay. ...

    After the year we had, intending to go abroad, we decided it was safer to have a "staycation" and we weren't disappointed. The location has exactly like in the photos with a picturesque view of the old rail viaduct crossing the River Esk. The viaduct makes a lovely, and deceptively quick, walking route into the main town. In the opposite direction, it is the quickest route by foot to Robin Hood's Bay. The main thing that is not accurate about the description of the accommodation is that apparently it doesn't have the internet. It does, or at least it did for us, with wifi code in the handy book you get to make the most of your stay. Although the evening's were drawing in, we were lucky with the weather, as such, we could sit outside on the balcony at night, and the stars were so clear. And as a nice little extra, on the river, we did see 2 Herons in our time there.

The property

An attractive, mid-mews cottage, in a small complex of similar properties, set by the banks of the River Esk, one mile from the popular fishing town of Whitby.

This bright and cheerful modern Whitby cottage has been tastefully furnished and decorated to a high standard providing a very comfortable holiday home, with patio doors in the sitting room and an archway leading to a well-equipped kitchen/diner.

Boasting a delightful double bedroom with access to a balcony overlooking the river with the benefit of a large sitting area, this bedroom can be adapted via sliding doors to provide two double bedrooms with a sprung mattress sofa bed.

The outside balcony affords fine river views - a lovely place to sit and watch the wildlife on the river and spot the steam trains passing by, there are communal lawned grounds outside leading down to the river, where seals, swans and ducks are regular visitors!

The property also has use of a boat ramp.

Although conveniently located away from the hustle and bustle, Whitby centre is just a short walk from the cottage, great for exploring the quaint cobbled streets, stroll on the beaches, visit the famous abbey and sample the many bars and restaurants.

For those of an adventurous disposition there is the cinder track along the route of the former Whitby - Scarborough Railway to Robin Hoods Bay a flat 6 mile walk with wonderful coastal views and cosy pub stops.

The surrounding area has a wealth of attractions, including the stunning scenery of the North York Moors, tea rooms in pretty coastal villages, and trips on the steam train to Pickering stopping in Heartbeat country.

A great Whitby cottage for all the family.

About the location

WHITBY

Robin Hood's Bay 5.5 miles; Scarborough 19.3 miles; Pickering 23 miles; Guisborough 21.5 miles.

The seaside town and port of Whitby lies at the mouth of the River Esk in the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire. Ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Yorkshire, the local area hosts an abundance of activity so you can be sure to get the best out of both the countryside and the coast. From the nearby North York Moors to its Blue Flag beaches, there's something here for every interest and time of year. Amongst its many attractions, Whitby holds a charming atmosphere, home to winding streets and hidden alleys, where you can find a wide selection of eateries and shops scattered amongst them. Take a trip to the picturesque harbour and lighthouse to watch the sun set, or get involved in some whale watching or a coastal cruise to watch the creatures up close. Climb the famous 199 to the Whitby Abbey to immerse yourself with history, or visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum presenting historical and ethnographic exhibition about Cook himself. Hosting an abundance of leisure facilities, opportunities to explore the natural lands, and plenty of coastal delights, Whitby offers something for everyone. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay full of heritage wonders and scenic spots, and in reach of the bustling towns of Scarborough and Middlesbrough, Whitby is a prime location for exploring all of the delights that Yorkshire has to offer.
