    “We had another wonderful holiday at Sleeping Dragon.”

    Its location is ideal for our extended family group. ...

    Its location is ideal for our extended family group. Beds and bedding were comfortable and clean. Plenty of nice towels available. Some carpets and soft furnishings look worn but the house is being sold. Kitchen well equipped and homely. We enjoyed the large garden and the views are superb. Big improvement with refuse arrangements this year (plenty of capacity in the two large wheelie bins) Shame the windows were so dirty (inside and out) A good holiday house but we are sad it's is no longer available for next year's hols.

The property

Perched on the cliff top in the idyllic hamlet of Kettleness, with breath-taking views out to sea, is this spacious semi-detached dwelling, Sleeping Dragon, resting on the outskirts of the town of Whitby.

This heart-warming retreat is ideal for families and friends seeking a get together to explore the delights of Whitby and the majestic lands of the North York Moors National Park, where you will find a magnitude of walking and cycling routes.

Here you will find five wonderfully presented bedrooms to choose from, each designed to ensure a flexible sleeping arrangement to suit the requirements of your group.

Be spoilt for choice with the master double bedroom with ocean views, two ground-floor double bedrooms, a twin bedroom and an external annexe with three single beds.

The bedrooms are serviced by a contemporary family bathroom, where you can choose to soak within the freestanding bath or refresh with a warming shower, in additional to a ground-floor shower room with another walk-in shower.

After an action-packed afternoon exploring the dramatic coastline, look forward to unwinding within the sitting room where you can cosy up in front of the woodburning stove which gently fills the room with tranquillity during the colder evenings as you indulge in some TV or get lost in a good book.

The charm of the property is continued into the heart of the home - the spacious kitchen/diner - where you can gather all of your loved ones together to enjoy a sociable evening.

The sleek units play host to everything you could possibly need to fulfil your culinary needs whilst away and the dining table is large enough for everyone to tuck into home-cooked meals whilst planning the next day’s adventure.

However, if you are visiting during the summer months, throw open the patio doors to filter in a coastal breeze or step outdoors to soak up the sun as your canine companions stretch their legs upon the lawn.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, head into the village of Goldsborough where you will be delighted to find a pub serving food or venture slightly further afield into Whitby where you will find winding alleyway littered with independent bars, bistros and restaurants to ensure that all tastes are catered to.

Whilst in Whitby, look forward to soaking up the sun at the glorious sandy beach or immersing yourself with history as you climb the famous 199 steps up to the ruins of the Abbey.

For those feeling adventurous, choose to walk along the Cleveland way to soak up the breath-taking views further or plan a pedal from the old Scarborough-to-Whitby coastal railway line or across the moorlands.

Sleeping Dragon is an outstanding base for exploring the delights of the location or celebrating a special occasion with loved ones.

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.
