    “Albany House is absolutely lovely and in a great location.”

    ...

    Well equipped, spacious and comfortable - constant hot water etc. A few minor things have changed since the photos were taken and one of the en-suite loos was out of action for all of our stay. The dishwasher didn’t work for 2 days but was repaired. The kitchen tap dripped/ran constantly and needs to be repaired/replaced - the other niggles were manageable but the dripping was hard to tolerate at times. Aside from the above - it’s a great property and we had a wonderful holiday. We would certainly consider returning to Albany House in the future.

The property

A sumptuous Georgian semi-detached town house, centrally located in the beautiful seaside town of Whitby.

Albany House is a few minutes walk from the atmospheric harbour, with famous swing bridge, where you can while away time over a relaxing drink in one of the many waterfront restaurants and watch the boats come and go – perfect for people watching and soaking up the bustling ambience. Families seeking a special place to get together, will fall in love with this splendid townhouse, which has been awarded 5 Star Gold and featured in both 25 Beautiful Homes magazine and Yorkshire Life.

Its five bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms arranged on upper ground, first and second floors can generously accommodate larger groups in style.

The house also benefits from private parking. Start your day leisurely at Albany House with a delicious and convivial breakfast at the farmhouse-style table in the superb kitchen with dining area.

A large range cooker and wall-mounted Flat Screen TV are there to enjoy.

There is a separate utility room with washer/dryer and additional fridge. After a day spent exploring, relax together over coffee in the refined surroundings of the drawing room, with its comfortable seating and welcoming selection of books and games. Guests are spoilt for choice with two wonderful first floor double bedrooms, both of which have king size beds and en-suites.

Choose from a romantic, four-poster bed with matching armoire and granite-topped chest of drawers or a beautifully carved silver bed with fantastic views of Whitby Abbey.

A smart house bathroom with bath incorporating a fixed shower unit, basin and WC completes the first floor. Moving up to the second floor, you’ll find another charming double bedroom with a brass bed, an airy twin bedroom with sea, harbour and Whitby Abbey views plus there is also a pretty single bedroom.

This floor has a shower room with shower, basin and WC. A little, unexpected gem awaits on the third floor; a cosy attic den for the children, equipped with TV, Wii, beanbags and toys. Catch the sun and pause a while in the paved front courtyard garden with planters containing trees and shrubs plus benches, a table and chairs. The area is well served with a wide range of convenience and specialist shops immediately on hand.

Spend a day on sandy West Cliff beach or enjoy delicious, freshly caught seafood or award-winning fish and chips. Should you wish to explore further afield, the stunning Yorkshire coast has something for everyone.

From quaint fishing villages, such as Staithes, to surfing at Sandsend.

Or if it’s good old fashioned seaside fun you’re looking for, then Scarborough is the place – check out its award winning Sea Life Sanctuary. This glorious property is a place to make memories that will last long after you’ve enjoyed Yorkshire’s many charms.
