  • "A very comfortable well furnished house, with lovely soft furnishings."

    A well equipped kitchen (only 3 tea plates) Good quality bed linen and towels. A good enclosed garden with plenty of seating .As stated by other guest the doormat outside the patio door needs replacing. It was wet and disintegrating and walking on it took wet prints into the living area. I moved the mat to one side. Good information booklet about the house and the area. An excellent location for a stay in Whitby. Would certainly recommend.

    Parking was a big bonus and steady 25 mins walk to town. Property cleanliness generally good but bathroom had a lot of black mould around the shower screen and surround. Perfect garden for the dog, enjoyed the welcome pack.

  • "Lovely modern very well equipped house."

    Excellent location for travelling around. Welcome pack and other items very much appreciated. Good area, parking in front of house great. Slept well as very quiet. Lovely enclosed garden for dig and lovely garden furniture. I’m sorry to say the bathrooms could have done with a through clean, daughter dropped soap on main bathroom floor and picked up covered in hairs. Bath had hairs and Under shower screen not clean. Bit disappointing and off putting. Once we gave it a clean no other issues.

  • "Absolutely fabulous property."

    Everything was spotless. Handy for shops and walks into Whitby. Only complaint was the lack of decent eating places Fine if you wanted fish and chips but not much choice of real food.Part of the holiday for my wife and I is searching out really good restaurants and they are few and far between in Whitby

    We were sharing with non family so was not ideal. Other than that the house was great !!!

  • "The toilet seat in the upstairs bathroom was “moving around” when we arrived."

    It needs fixing in place. The main bedroom large window on the left was impossible to let air in on the left hand side. The right hand side was fine. Everything else was top notch! We were really pleased with everything, the owners had obviously made an awful lot of effort to make things as perfect as possible. We stripped the bedding and put it in the black bags, but had none left to put the towels in , some were put in the washing machine for cleaning, and the rest were put in the bathtub. No complaints at all. We would come again next year.

    Lovely co-ordinating accessories in every room. It is obvious it has been furnished with specifically purchased items - not just any old cushions/plates/furniture. The welcome basket was the nicest I have ever found in holiday properties and very well received. The beds were comfy, as were the settees. I would definitely recommend this property - thank you!

  • "This new build holiday home is superb, it offers a very high standard through out and is situated on an attractive, quiet housing development (currently still in progress)."

    It’s hard to find fault but if I were to be super picky I would say that the kitchen knives (including the veg peeler) are not sharp, the dining table is cramped and the seats at either end don’t really work because you can’t get your legs under the table. The house is also bit of a trek from the town centre but we knew that in advance so it’s not really a complaint!

The property

Misty Moon is an immaculate semi-detached cottage resting in the seaside and port town of Whitby.

With a wonderful enclosed garden and TV's in all the bedrooms, Misty Moon is an ideal spot to discover the North Yorkshire coast or the nearby North York Moors National Park.

You are greeted to the property by a spacious private driveway, before you step into the hallway where there is room to hang any coats.

To your left there is a amply-equipped kitchen with everything you need to enjoy a self-catering holiday, including great cooking facilities, a large fridge/freezer, a fancy coffee machine and a handy washing machine and dishwasher.

Moving through the property, there is a well-decorated living/dining room with a unique feature wall with the tall ships in Whitby, a spacious dining table for guests to enjoy an evening meal together, and patio doors leading out to the rear garden.

The image on the feature wall is a famous one as it’s been taken by Frank Meadow Sutcliffe and is his personal favourite out of all of Sutcliffe’s work.

The enclosed garden boasts a patio with furniture for an evening of al fresco dining, as well as a swing seat where you can enjoy your morning coffee, an extendable washing line and beautiful flower beds.

When the evening draws to a close, climb upstairs and past the large vinyl image of Whitby at night, to your chosen bedroom which each boast a TV for guests to relax, and storage space for those wishing to unpack.

These three superb bedrooms are complimented by a bathroom, where guests can soak in a long bath or wash their sandy toes under the shower.

8 Convent Way is within walking distance to a supermarket for when you need those self-catering essentials, or when you fancy a delightful evening out, head towards the centre of town to find a range of takeaways, pubs and eateries.

Whitby is a great spot for walkers, who can enjoy the Cinder Hiking Track, the nearby North York Moors, or the famous 199 steps to Whitby Abbey which offers sweeping views of the harbour and the town.

Whitby offers a stunning Blue Flag sandy beach which boasts donkey rides, beach huts and great views of the lighthouse, whilst the shoreside golf course and surrounding museums also attract guests.

Whilst in Whitby don't forget to enjoy a boat ride in search for whales, dolphins, seals and sea birds, or stay on land and take a ride on the Whitby Cliff Lift from the cliff top, down to the beach.

Whitby has something for everyone to enjoy, so for a memorable holiday, choose Misty Moon as your holiday home.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
