  • "A very comfortable house where we enjoyed our holiday very much."

    My autistic grandson loved he evening walks on Larpool viaduct. Everything we needed was there . My only small criticism is that it would be good to have the carpark fully marked with the allocated spaces. All in all this is a great place to stay.

  • "We were very impressed with the property, well furnished, beautifully clean and warm (important this week as the weather was cold!"

    ). The guest information was useful and everything worked as it should. My only suggestion is to have something in the guest information about what should be done before leaving (crockery all clean and put away, strip bed, empty bins etc). I hope we did all that was expected.

    Roller blinds in the bedroom not attached to the roller. Bathroom blind & downstairs blind not able to drop all the way down. Kitchen table had burn marks on the surface.

    Thank you for your feedback. We have sent our handyman round to rectify the issues raised. If you had called at the time we could have the issues resolved sooner for you Property Owner

The property

Nestled on the outskirts of the historic town of Whitby in North Yorkshire is The Retreat.

This wonderful holiday home benefits from a welcoming interior completed by three well-appointed bedrooms, off-road parking for one car, beautiful views of Larpool Viaduct and a fabulous setting close to the wonders of Whitby, the beauty of the coast and North York Moors National Park; a perfect choice for families or friends looking to explore North Yorkshire.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home stepping straight into the welcoming sitting room where you can unwind on the plush sofa in front of the TV.

Later, step into the fully-equipped kitchen to rustle up hearty meals which the whole family can enjoy around the dining table, after dinner venture to the rear garden to enjoy the last light over Whitby with a glass of wine in hand.

When stars fill the sky, venture up the stairs to wash off the day’s adventures in the sleek bathroom ahead of catching your rest in either the double, the twin or single bedroom.

During the day take a leisurely stroll into the heart of Whitby where you can stock up on all of your self-catering essentials at location convenience stores or treat your loved ones to a delicious meal at The Black Horse Inn or The Granby; there are also a plethora of unique bars to choose from.

Head down to Whitby Beach to admire its golden shores and the breath-takign views out across the North Sea or jump on one of the regular boat trips for a chance to marvel at the coast in a unique way or sport resident wildlife including whales, seals and dolphins.

Discover the area’s history by a challenging but rewarding trip up the famous 199 steps to reach St Mary’s Church and the iconic ruins of Whitby Abbey.

Keen ramblers and cyclists can make sure of the Cinder Track which runs through the town or head to North York Moors National Park to discover the endless hikes there.

About the location


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 array of activities 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 everyone. 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 steps to the Whitby Abbey to immerse yourself with history, or visit the Captain Cook Memorial Museum presenting historical and ethnographic exhibition about Cook himself. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay, rich in heritage, wonders and scenic spots, and in easy 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.
