    “Whitby is a hidden jewel of the North East and Ashben Cottage is an ideal base from which to explore the area.”

    Extremely close to the hub of the town centre but extremely quiet and secluded in the courtyard. We had a wonderful week and will highly recommend to our friends and families

The property

Ashben Cottage is a delightful town house, hidden within the charming streets of Whitby.

This homely open-plan living space is a great location for families or groups of four that seek an exciting stay in the historic town that inspired the gripping tale of Dracula.

Envision yourself moving through the charming courtyard and being greeted by the airy open-plan living space as you step in.

Store your coat and shoes in the boot room before taking a seat and mapping out your plans for the days to come.

Wander over to the fully-fitted kitchen where you will find everything needed to create some mouth-watering meals for the group; gather your ingredients from the cupboards and begin to prepare a hearty home-cooked meal whilst you chat to your friends sitting on the sofas as they scroll through the channels on the Smart TV and find a movie for you all to enjoy following your meal.

Climb the staircase up to the first floor and make yourself at home in one of the lovely bedrooms by unpacking your belongings into the storage provided.

The first of the bedrooms is a spacious super-king that can be transformed into two single beds upon request, whilst the second bedroom is home to a double bed and features its very own en-suite shower room.

It is on this floor that you will also find a tranquil bathroom where you can while away an hour in the bath tub.

Make the most of the courtyard when the sun is shining by dining alfresco around the patio table.

Venture into the centre of town and stumble upon a number of idyllic local gift shops and welcoming cafes as you make your way toward the beach for a stroll along the soft sands.

Be impressed by the twenty-foot Whalebone Arch and hike the 199 steps that lead up to iconic ruins of Whitby Abbey admiring the beautiful views along the way, stopping off at Caedmon Memorial and the Church of St Mary.

The seaside town and port of Whitby lies at the mouth of the River Esk in the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire.

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.
