The property

Enjoying captivating views of the famous Whitby Abbey, St Mary’s Church, the harbour and the far-reaching coastline is this elegantly-appointed, one bedroom house, Grays’ Cottage, 3 Flowergate Walk.

This wonderful hideaway enjoys a superb position within the town’s centre and is only a short walk from the magnitude of independent cafés, bistros and restaurants within the seaside location, ideal for a romantic getaway.

An ‘upside down’ house to make the most of the views, venture up the staircase to be welcomed into the contemporary-styled lounge, overlooking the old town and Abbey.

Fulfilling your culinary needs is a well-equipped kitchen, where you and your partner can rustle up a tasty treat that can be enjoyed in the dining room, which offers delightful views as you tuck into your home-cooked meal or enjoy a deserved glass of wine.

The charm of the property is continued into the bedroom, where a well-presented super king sized bed awaits you after an action-packed day, as well as ample storage to house your personal belongings.

Enjoy breakfast or pre-dinner drinks on the patio that spans the front and side of the property, enjoying morning sunshine and all-day views.

If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, you and your loved one will be spoilt for choice by the eateries that await you within the town.

Choose to sit at the harbour side and tuck into the famous Whitby fish and chips, or dine at one of the many elegant restaurants serving delicious seafood, or head to Fortune’s, a traditional smokehouse.

Attractions within the town are plentiful, with opportunities to soak up the sun at the beach or brush up on the local history by climbing the 199 steps to discover the famous ruins of the Abbey which inspired Bram Stoker’s famous Dracula.

If you are feeling more adventurous, head along the coastline to the popular resort town of Scarborough or choose to walk one of the paths upon the majestic North York Moors National Park.

Grays’ Cottage promises a wonderful escape to this part of Yorkshire with your loved one.
