  • "Really lovely little cottage in a great location."

    Spotlessly clean and such a good use of the small space which somehow made it feel a lot bigger than it is. It had everything we needed. The car parking was very convenient which isn’t always the case when staying so central. Despite being so central it was on a really quiet and quaint side street. A lovely place to stay. Would definitely book again.

  • "Clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage."

    Ideally positioned for exploring Whitby, 2 to 3 minutes walk from the Harbour and the wider area. This cottage gets our recommendation. Looking for an excuse to return in 2024.

  • "A small 1 bedroom cosy cottage, that welcomed our fur babies, in the town of Whitby."

    We did not have a garden, but literally just a few steps outside our door, was a wonderful seating area, with plants and flowers, and an acknowledgement of Alice in Wonderland. The view, from the seating area, looking down on us, was of the church and the ruins of the Abbey. We sat here in the evenings with a glass of wine, it was so peaceful. The town of Whitby is bustling with people and some lovely shops selling an array of gifts, crafts, antiques and clothing. The harbour is full of bars, restaurants and places to rest and relax and of course beautiful beaches I'd recommend this cottage for one or two people, (and four legged friends)who just want a simple break away from the stress of working life

  • "Beautiful little cottage in the heart of the town."

    The owners should be very proud! We were worried it would be a little cramped but the use of the limited space is excellent. Lovely and clean throughout, and the information pack had everything we needed for our week's stay. Parking was another concern but it was really easy to use the visitor permits and we had no issues at all - one tip for the owners though, it may be helpful to print a small map highlighting the roads with visitor parking. Also, we had an unexpected issue with one of the radiators - the 'Maid in Whitby' lady who maintains the property was great, she had a plumber sent round in no time and the issue was sorted really quickly. We can't wait to visit Whitby again and would definitely consider booking April Cottage next time.

    The lay out was really well thought out and well proportioned. The location was excellent for both beach and town centre.

    Very up to date, yet still has a rustic charm. We loved it and will come back. We would however have liked a harder bed but that is a personal choice, and we understand that not everyone would agree.

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.
