  • "Lovely property and information on website accurate."

    Was worried as there was no pictures of hot tub on the listing , but hot tub lovely . Beautiful views out to see and lovely little pub within walking distance. Property itself was great and met our needs, family group with two dogs.

The property

Whitby 5.7 miles.

The Old Guard House is a stunning, refurbished home located in the charming town of Whitby, in the North York Moors National Park.

With breathtaking farmland and coastal views, this property boasts ample outdoor space and sleeps ten, the ideal base for large families and groups accompanied by a furry-friend or two, who seek a seaside, summer escape to North Yorkshire.

As you walk through this pristinely-finished home, you’ll be transported to the past with its 1940s decor and furniture.

Be welcomed into a vast, open-plan living space where you can take your pick of two separate seating areas and their plush sofas to plunge into as you enjoy the warmth of the woodburning stove and the murmur of the Smart TV in the background.

The chefs will be happy to find a spacious kitchen with an island/breakfast bar and ample kitchenware to cook to their heart’s content, as well as an elevated dining area to enjoy your meals around.

Step through the patio doors to the enclosed garden and its lawn for the children and dogs to run around in while you sink into the hot tub, or sip on a glass of wine admiring the coastal views.

Come back into the warm comfort of the house with its underfloor heating and rinse off in the one of the shower rooms or plunge yourself into a relaxing bath before heading to rest in one of five beautifully-decorated bedrooms.

The following morning, wake up just before dawn and make yourself a cup of steaming tea or coffee to watch the sun rise over the glistening horizon from the roof terrace.

Explore your surroundings and make your way to The Fox & Hounds Goldsborough for a mouthwatering meal, Mary's Sandwich Shop for a quick lunch or indulge your sweet tooth with a stop at Dessert Box Whitby where you’ll enjoy decadent treats.

History and nature lovers can visit Mulgrave Castle’s ruins and stroll through Mulgrave Woods before taking a well-deserved break and lounging on the sand at Sandsend Beach.

A quick drive will take you to the lovely seaside town of Whitby where you can go to Whitby Whale Watching and take a boat trip to find whales, dolphins and other native wildlife.

Then if you’re brave enough, head over to Dracula Experience Ltd where you’ll take a spooky guided walk with animated scenes and live actors whilst learning about the history of Dracula.

End the day by walking up to Whitby Harbour West Lighthouse to gape at wide, undisturbed views of the coast before having dinner at the family-friendly Abbey Wharf restaurant.

Fun-filled adventures await you at The Old Guard House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £650.

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.
