    “Very well equipped cottage in a fabulous location.”

    Really comfortable beds and brilliant to have 3 bathrooms. The addition of two parking spaces really appreciated.

The property

A superb Georgian house, set over three flours, providing luxury accommodation in the heart of Whitby – ideal for that special family holiday or get together with friends. With long-range views of the imposing Whitby Abbey and only minutes from the beach, harbour, shops and restaurants, this stylish property is decorated to a very high standard.

It provides a marvellous base from which to explore historic Whitby and the splendours of North Yorkshire’s moors and coastline. The entrance hall leads to a relaxing sitting room with smart wooden floors, comfortable seating and a wood burning stove, which is supremely cosy in the cooler months.

In the dining room, eight guests can easily sit down together at the dining table for an evening meal or leisurely breakfast – the décor is fresh, but with a rustic feel and a large window ensures plenty of natural light. On to the gleaming galley kitchen, with its sparkling red granite work surfaces and quality appliances – there’s everything here that will keep holiday life running smoothly, including a washing machine and dryer in the under stairs cupboard.

Moving upstairs, there is a generous house shower room on the half landing, with shower, basin and WC.

This floor boasts a spacious king-size double bedroom and en-suite shower room with shower, basin and WC, plus built in wardrobe.

There is also a twin bedroom, with full size 3’ single beds.

Both rooms are tastefully decorated, with quality soft furnishings for added luxury. The second floor has another king-size double bedroom and a second twin bedroom.

If you love a relaxing bath, then prepare to be wowed by the second floor travertine tiled bathroom with fantastic plunge bath (styled on the Japanese-style deep soaking baths) – what could be nicer after a sandy day at the beach than a luxurious bubble bath? Outside, there is a lovely enclosed rear courtyard garden with stylish rattan furniture.

Pull up a chair beside your loved ones, chat, breathe in the fresh sea air and enjoy your favourite pre-dinner tipple together – perfect! Located in the West Cliff area of Whitby, close to the famous ‘whale bones’, the property is a short walk from Whitby’s bustling waterfront with its lovely array of restaurants, bars and shops.

Watch the boats come and go, or pop into the RNLI Museum to see the lifeboat.

The Captain Cook Memorial Museum gives an insight into the life of Whitby’s famous seafaring son.

Or become an adventurer yourself and take a pleasure trip out from the harbour. Inland, the North York Moors beckon and if you happen to be visiting in August and early September you are in for a real treat: swathes of purple blooming heather.

The heritage steam locomotive from Whitby is an idyllic way to take in these wonderful landscapes. Harbour View is a popular choice with guests who love to have everything on their doorstep and a little luxury whilst on holiday.

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.
