    “Great central location with free parking!”

The property

This splendid, semi-detached cottage sits in the heart of the historic fishing port of Whitby, North Yorkshire.

The fabulous features of this town, the North York Moors and the stunning coastline lie at your fingertips, making this a wonderful stay for friends, couples and families.

Enter the property into its beautiful kitchen/diner; the neutral kitchen area is well-equipped, whilst the dining area is enhanced by a remarkable mural dedicated to a local legend, Captain Cook.

A snug sitting room concludes the ground floor, this welcoming spot provides cosy seating for the whole group to sit and relax together.

The first floor presents three lovingly finished bedrooms; a king-size, a double and a twin room enjoy an immaculate layout and are serviced by a lavishly tiled bathroom.

Step out of your front door and be greeted by the fabulous amenities and attractions of Whitby, a weekend is not nearly enough to see all that this ancient fishing port has to offer.

Discover its high-quality shops and eateries, picturesque harbour, sandy beach, imposing abbey and other attractions including the Captain Cook Memorial Museum and Whitby Whale Watching boat tours.

The North York Moors National Park are easily reachable from here, a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts from its walking and cycling paths to its scenery and fascinating villages.

You can also visit some more popular resorts such as Scarborough and Pickering.

A tastefully finished cottage in the centre of an excellent coastal town.
