  • "Really lovely apartment in a great position for accessing Whitby on foot."

    Very clean, well decorated and really well equipped. Beds nice and comfortable. Lovely view of the Abbey and glimpses of the sea. Welcome pack had some very tasty items in it. Loved the ginger cake! Would definitely recommend staying here. We had a lovely holiday. Lots to do in the area. Thanks for being flexible with the dates and letting us move the booking.

    Thank you for taking the time to write such lovely feedback. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in Abbey View Apartment and that you had a super holiday. Kind regards, Vicky - Owner Abbey View Apartment. Property Owner

  • "I'm not sure about being asked to strip bedding will ever be a part of any future holiday I book, having never been asked before."

    If this is a part of the future then I won't book another holiday like this one!

  • "Great location and apartment but let down by tired and neglected interior."

    Carpets stained throughout, toilet didn’t flush, sofa needed replaced, bedding was bizarre. The quilt was too small for the bed and inside a huge cover which meant that the cover trailed on the floor. The sheets weren’t even tucked in and then when stripping the bed on departure, to my horror there was a plastic sheet covering the mattress! Really disappointed as have been with Yorkshire Coastal Cottages on many holidays and have always had lovely accommodation.

  • "Excellent. Very comfortable stay."

    Lovely, clean, tastefully furnished flat with a brilliant view of Whitby Abbey. Perfect location just a 5 minute walk out of town and easy to get out to other coastal Towns and areas of the Yorkshire Moors.

  • "The apartment was lovely, modern, clean and had everything we needed."

    Fantastic location for Whitby and great views of the Abbey. I would recommend for couples or small group of friends. My only complaint would be Sykes failed to tell us the office was shut and that we could not collect the key fob for the car park as detailed in the email they sent me prior to arrival. We wasted our time finding somewhere to park and locate the office we were told to go to only to find it closed. The instructions on how to access the apartment via the keypad outside were also not very clear and it took us several attempts to get in. This is no reflection of the apartment which was great. However Sykes need to update their email communications.

  • "The apartment was very comfortable whilst being clean and Covid safe."

    It has great views of the Abbey from the living room and it was only a short walk into the Town. The parking space is an added bonus but it is rather tight due to the pillars. We ate out most nights and can recommend Trenchers, Harry's Bar an The Star Inn the Harbour all of which served excellent local fare.

  • "This is probably one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed."

    Thank you for that. We ate out each evening so never used the kitchen items but everything was available. We felt safe and very secure and slept well. My only slight moan would be a suggestion to switch to blackout blinds in bedrooms as very bright first thing. Thank you. We would book this apartment again and recommend it highly.

  • "The apartment was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for our short break."

    It was great to have our own parking bay. We left our car there and walked in and out of town each day. It's only a 10 minute walk to the town centre and beach. Highly recommended.

  • "Very clean, freshly decorated, very quiet location to rear of property with great views, close to amenities."

    This apartment had all we needed. Travelling with two teenagers it’s great location for anyone wanting to explore the many lovely places along coastline and enjoy Whitby town (despite lockdown restrictions). The whole building and communal areas kept clean including the lift. Sea fishing, ‘Cranberry Swamp’ cafe (down the road) and Whitby ‘Eskape room’ experience are top three highly recommended activities to do while you are there! There’s a lovely park also across the road with kids climbing etc for younger families and indoor sports centre (swimming pool) around the corner though unfortunately closed due to restrictions, are an asset to the location. My only slight criticism would be to move a mirror closer to a plug socket for hair styling, so you could swap the ‘beach’ sign and mirror around in the hall for a simple solution!

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 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 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. 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.
