  • "Fantastic holiday house with all you need and more."

    Loved the hot tub and table tennis.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Beachcroft very much."

    The hot tub is a real star attraction, especially for children. The position of the accommodation is perfect, a short walk to the beach, on a regular bus route and a lovely inn across the road that does delicious meals at a good price. A great place for a family holiday.

  • "Great setting."

    Beautiful views across the golf course and sea. Felt the bathroom facilities let the property down for the potential number of guests the house could accommodate. We didn’t use the bunk room but it did look a little claustrophobic. The downstairs bedrooms are very comfortable and the kitchen is very modern, light and airy. Upstairs bedrooms were stuffy due to the velux windows not opening (and appeared to be screwed shut). All-in-all we enjoyed our stay at Beachcrest but feel there is room for improvement

    Thanks for your feedback. As detailed in the property description the smallest bedroom is a bunk bedroom with fabulous sea views, but suitable only for children…whose feedback has been particularly positive! The upstairs windows and the three veluxes are all fully functional, albeit a bit stiff…. They have all been oiled and loosened so should be easier to use for future guests… Property Owner

  • "Bathrooms were no adequate"

    Thanks for the fabulous rating and sorry the two bathrooms were not as substantial as you would have liked. We have done the best we can given the structure of the house, but are heartened by the fact that negative feedback has been minimal over the first year of this house availability.. Property Owner

  • "What a beautiful home to rent."

    I would suggest that more information is given about the hot tub. There are no photos and this is a fantastic luxury. In little private courtyard with a tropical/beach vibe. The bedrooms were lovely and really nicely presented. The Kitchen amazing. Another point being that the listing doesn’t state there’s a dishwasher so that was a great bonus. The only part that lets the property down is the bathrooms. They are very small and not on the same scale as the rest of the property. However there is a limit as to what could be done due to the space available but maybe the upstairs bathroom would benefit a refit.

    Thanks for your feedback and we will get some updated pictures as the hottub arrived the day the first guests did! Property Owner

  • "Lovely location and an ideal base for walks along beech and into town."

    Hot tub very popular with our group. Beautiful clean and comfy beds but with 6 adults and a small child, only one usable shower (over bath shower ok for 6 year old only) and a toilet that had to sit side saddle! Games room in converted garage and cinema room next door only accessible via steep steps down from kitchen and separate outside door. Neither welcoming- anyone with mobility issues could not access without great care.

  • "Location perfect, house was better than we expected, so comfortable, beds so comfortable too, everything you needed well thought about, even bowls for the dog."

    Pub handy just over the road their food was lovely. the only thing I would say is the BBQ needed attention and it hadn't been cleaned, we wasn't going to use it anyway but the next people would.

  • "We had a fabulous stay the accommodation was brilliant…."

    the beds were exceptionally comfy. We could easily walk down to the beach and into Whitby. The White House Inn was very hospitable and the food excellent. We would definitely recommend Beach Crest.

  • "Property was great , very spacious and good facilties , the hot tub was a life saver after all the walking and we made use of the table tennis table most nights ."

    Kitchen was good n lots of room to eat meals for all of us ( 2 kids ,6 adults and a dog ) , garden was enclosed and perfectly safe for the dog and the living room was warm and comfortable. Couple of negatives , the mattress was to soft for me (although everyone else was happy lol ) and the biggest minus was, we felt you need bigger rubbish bins ,both filled very quickly with the amount of people in our party . That said ,overall our stay was amazing and the property and location were superb .

    Thanks for your feedback comments. The downstairs front bedroom mattress is soft and loved by some, too soft for others, so we are reluctant to change it, as all mattresses would then be firm… Would welcome feedback going forward and will change if that is the general preference… We have included the Monday bin emptying schedule in the information booklet, so the general and recycling bins can be put out each week. Where this works each week the bins are more than enough… We will keep this under review. Property Owner

  • "Excellent property for our 3 generation family to stay in."

    The beds were very comfy, everywhere was clean and the kitchen equipment provided was excellent. The kids (& adults) all really enjoyed the hot tub and the table tennis. Close enough to Whitby and Sandsend for a leisurely stroll in along the clifftops. We also had a lovely meal at the White House pub across the road, as well as fabulous fish and chips in Whitby!

  • "Jon is a fantastic host."

    The house is brilliant. It would benefit from a more comfortable shower room and toilet, and a more powerful shower. We would also suggest that a 10am checkout time is far, far too early for a house of this size and standard. We would recommend this house, where we spent a short but lovely break.

    Thanks for the feedback! The electric power has been marked up to give the optimum performance without reaching the thermostatic cutoff. Glad you had a great holiday! Property Owner

  • "Would have liked to have know that the cinema room and games room could only be accessed outside."

    I thought there may have been stairs inside. Also really needs a blind in the downstairs shower room and some sort of screen in the upstairs bathroom do that when you have a shower it doesn't go everywhere. Overhaul the house was amazing and the location perfect.

    Thanks for the feedback. We will update the listing to make the games room/cinema room access clear. Shower room screen is on order and we will investigate an upstairs shower screen - however the sloping ceiling means we would not recommend stand up showering in the bath… Will update the usage guide..

  • "We stayed at the Beachcrest from 25/11/22 for one week for my husband's 65th birthday, our children and grandchildren also stayed with us."

    The house was spotlessly clean and very well equipped for large families. There were plenty of pots and pans for cooking and a range oven, if you wanted to cook meals instead of eating out during your stay. The house is well located, only a 2 minute walk to the beach and a pleasant walk into Whitby town centre. There is also a hotel across the road, which has a bar and serves meals, if you do not fancy cooking, they also sell pizzas to take out. The owner had made the property very homely and there was a Christmas tree up when we arrived, he also left us complementary Tea, coffee, milk, and biscuits. There is a lovely garden, which if staying there during the summer months would be a lovely space to spend sunny afternoons. There is also a hot tub in the garden, which we did utilise during our stay, which was a nice extra touch. The only small negative comment I would make about this property was, it had a beautiful kitchen that as a family we spent a lot of family time in there and during the evenings it was not very private. There are 3 windows in the kitchen, and one is directly opposite the hotel, so people coming and going would constantly look straight in as the light was on. There was also no blind at the downstairs bathroom window. Apart from these 2 small things, the house was amazing and I would definitely recommend staying there. A beautiful home.

  • "We had an excellent break in a fantastic property."

    The owners were very welcoming as we arrived, taking time to show us around the property and give us tips on the local area. The property has recently been refurbished top to bottom and is fitted out to a really high standard. Not something we expected to find (or spend any time in!) but the hot tub was definitely a highlight for us all :-) As a group of five we really benefited from the communal space and being able to find our own space (the games/cinema room downstairs). More practical things; the washing machine, dishwasher, two showers, off road parking for two cars and really generous storage space downstairs really suited our group who were out and about on the North Yorks coast. It's a short and easy walk to the centre of Whitby (about 10-15 minutes) and even less to the beach. If you don't fancy venturing that far then the local pub is just a minute away and does a great Sunday roast :-) I would strongly recommend this property to any groups or larger families looking for a break in Whitby.

The property

Tucked away in the popular coastal town of Whitby, North Yorkshire, is this lovely five-bedroom family home, Beachcrest, enjoying direct views over Sandsend beach and the local golf course, overlooking the fifth green.

Benefitting from a superb location within the North York Moors National Park and boasting sea views, Beachcrest is a fabulous choice for large families of 10 seeking a relaxing retreat.

Step into your new home from home, where on the ground-floor, you will find two beautifully decorated double bedrooms, one with Smart TV, both of which are served by a well-appointed shower room.

You can cook up a storm in the spacious and well-equipped kitchen while looking out the three windows with sea views, ready to savour meals at the dining table or alfresco out in the rear garden.

Head to the sitting room where you can snuggle up on the plush seating as you select your favourite film from the Smart TV?

Climb the stairs up to the first floor, where you can freshen up with a soak in the bath, complete with handheld shower, before discovering three further bedrooms, two doubles and a bunk room, all of which have plenty of storage for your belongings.

Come morning, enjoy a short walk over to Sandsend beach and its stretch of golden terrain, or perhaps arrange a competitive afternoon of 18 holes at the resident golf course, offering stunning coastal views?

Explore the bustling town, where you can visit the remarkable Whitby Abbey, delve into history at the Whitby Museum, hook your catch of the day along the West Pier, bathe on the golden sands of Whitby Beach, hike along The Cinder Track, climb the renowned 199 Steps, or embark on a boat trip to spot whales which frequent the shores.

Continue onto Robin Hood's Bay, where you will find the Robin Hood's Bay Museum, a gorgeous beach, and a delightful selection of cafes, perfect for refuelling after a day of exploring the coast.

Take advantage of your excellent location within the North York Moors, where you can enjoy scenic walks and bike rides, or venture further afield to Scarborough, home to a magnificent castle, Alpamare and Luna Park, a fantastic beach, the famous Cleveland Way, and the picturesque Peasholm Park.

All this and more awaits at Beachcrest.
