    The property was exceptionally clean and met our high standards of cleanliness. The property is well equipped and has everything that you will need. The linen and towels were lovely too and there were mattress and pillow protectors used; the mattress was new. We took our little dog, who felt very settled and at home. If you struggle with stairs then this would not be the property for you, as there are forty stairs from the hallway up to the third floor. 1 Burns Yard is situated in a central location and literally a few minutes walk from the harbour. There are also some good pubs, a stylish wine bar and restaurants on the doorstep. Judith, our host was very friendly and professional. The only negative we had was that the lead up to the property needed sweeping and jet washing, the wheelie bins were over flowing with garbage which was off-putting. However, this is a shared pathway to four or five properties on Burns Yard and so all residents/property owners have a role to play in keeping the pathway maintained. To this end, we will definitely book this property again without hesitation and would recommend it to our family and friends.

The property

Tucked away down one of Whitby’s narrow alleyways in the centre of Whitby town, you will find 1 Burns Yard.

Set across three floors, this apartment offers up a wonderful base from which a couple can enjoy Whitby and tour the breath-taking North Yorkshire coast and countryside.

Climb the staircase up to the first floor and be welcomed by a well-equipped kitchen hosting all the essential appliances needed to cook up a storm.

Joining this space is a large dining table, providing the perfect spot for enjoying local produce and indulging in a bottle of your favourite wine.

Retire for the evening to the cosy second-floor sitting room, snuggling up on the sofa as you flick on the flat-screen TV and unwind with an enthralling movie.

When you begin to feel yourself tire, whisk yourself off to the third floor and discover a warm and restful double bedroom, served by a light and airy bathroom hosting both a spacious tub and shower.

When ready to explore the historical town of Whitby, be sure to stroll the vast sugary sands of Whitby Beach enjoying views of the North Sea, before taking the 199 steps up to the Church of St Mary and Gothic remains of Whitby Abbey, said to be the inspiration of Bram Stokers 18th-century novel Dracula.

Wine and dine in some of the finest local restaurants dotted in and around the town, or spend your evening on an eerie tour with the Dracula Experience.

Spot the iconic Whalebone Arch as you tuck in to a mouth-watering Portion of fish and chips, or head to the village of Robin Hood's Bay to see the National Trust owned Old Coastguard Station and Robin Hood's Bay Museum.

Further afield, the resort town of Scarborough boasts many great attractions including Scarborough Castle and Terror Tower, as well as Scarborough North Bay Railway and SEA LIFE aquarium.

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.
