    “Excellent location for Whitby and surrounding area, well placed for interesting walks.”

    Spacious car parking slot only 63 steps form the front door, picnic bench outside the back door is bathed in sunlight in the afternoon. Excellent power shower, just the thing after walking to Robin Hood's Bay and back. This is the 3rd time we have stayed in the area, and look forward to returning soon.

Our only complaint is the 10% booking fee Sykes charge, which we consider a bit rich given that we do the booking over the internet.

The property

Whitby 1 mile.

A cosy, modern, end-terrace cottage, situated in a small development on the banks of the River Esk, on the edge of the seaside town of Whitby.

Perfect for families wanting to explore the North York Moors and seaside resorts, the property provides an ideal base, with the added advantage of a communal indoor swimming pool.

Overlooking the famous old railway viaduct, under which steam trains pass by, this delightful property has a comfortably furnished open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and sitting area.

There are two comfortable bedrooms together with a family bathroom.

Outside this lovely cottage there is a small private patio and a large, enclosed, communal garden with children's play equipment.

The indoor swimming pool is sure to be a big hit with the children and ideal for a rainy day.

Communal grounds lead down to the river banks, where you are likely to see otters, herons, ducks and the odd kingfisher.

Seals also regularly swim up this stretch of the tidal estuary.

Although just a 20 minute walk into the centre of Whitby, this is a tranquil spot and offers a peaceful environment after a busy day.

At the top of the development, is the 23 mile long disused railway line, known as the 'Cinder Track', enjoyed by walkers, cyclists and your four legged friends.

Popular Whitby has something for everyone, with its narrow cobbled streets, quaint tea rooms, good restaurants and trendy harbour bars.

Walk the extensive sands to Sandsend to the north or tackle the 199 steps up to the majestic abbey, high on the cliffs above the town.

The famous fish and chips are a must and then work them off by an invigorating walk on the Cleveland Way.

The more adventurous may opt for a fishing trip or you may care to try whale-watching in season as Minke whales are regularly sighted just off the coast.

The North York Moors are on the doorstep and the pretty coastal villages of Staithes, Runswick Bay and Robin Hood’s Bay are a short drive away.

Plenty to do for all the family at any time of the year.

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.
