The property

Positioned in the heart of the seaside town of Whitby, is this charming, terraced cottage, Anchor Cottage.

With the beach, bars and shops just paces away, this pet-friendly home welcomes families, friends and their pooch.

Discover a roadside parking space before passing the threshold into the bright sitting room; here you can unwind on the sofa or armchair with a cup of tea in hand.

From here, stairs will lead you to the kitchen/diner on the lower-ground-floor, with a range cooker, separate fridge and freezer, as well as a washer/dryer and dishwasher to do the cleaning up for you.

Settle down at the dining table underneath the beamed ceilings as you tuck-into hearty meals and chatter about the adventures so far.

After a day exploring North Yorkshire, head to the first floor where you can opt for either a soothing soak in the bath or a quick wash in the overhead shower.

When sleep calls, there is a second-floor double with vaulted ceilings, as well as a double with bedside lamps on the first floor so you can enjoy a nighttime read.

Awaken with a morning brew and home-cooked breakfast in the kitchen/diner before getting ready for the exciting day ahead.

Visit Whitby Museum to learn about the town's maritime history, then enjoy a walk along the picturesque Whitby Beach.

The beaches are sandy and golden and then visit the pretty harbour with its famous swing bridge.

Whitby is edged with stylish wine bars and award-winning restaurants.

Visit the quaint fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay which has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The village is a popular tourist destination, with its picturesque harbour, narrow streets and picturesque cottages.

The National Trust Coastal Centre is a must-see, as is the Old St Stephen's Church.

There are also some great restaurants and bars, including the Wayfarer Bistro.

Venture further afield to the seaside town of Scarborough for a fun-filled day, where you can take a stroll along the beautiful seafront, enjoy some retail therapy in the town centre or explore the many attractions on offer – Scarborough Castle, SEA LIFE Scarborough and Oliver's Mount Racing are just a few of the highlights.

For a memorable trip to north Yorkshire, make Anchor Cottage your base.
