  • “Fabulous house but in need of some TLC , good location.”

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Only niggles were we were not able to open all windows and felt uncomfortable in case of fire. No clear fire escape .What smoke/carbon monixide alarms were there seemed dated.Bin problem needs sorting. No clear indication of what bin belongs to what property. All bins were full on arrival and we were told by refuse collectors at the end of our stay that they still would not be emptied as they were contaminated.

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.

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.

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.
