  • “A really good house for a group of eight and a dog.”

    Location brilliant, in the heart of Whitby with some great shops and bars just down the road. Parking for 2 cars, tight getting in and out but not a major problem. The only improvements would be a supply of bin bags, more robust trivets or kitchen surface protectors and the oven could do with a professional clean.

But all in all, it was a great holiday and the house worked really well for us.

The property

Tucked away down a quiet square amongst the charming streets of Whitby, this elegant Georgian townhouse is a wonderful escape for families looking to break away from everyday life.

Boasting three floors full of attention to detail, emphasised through the chic furnishings and tasteful colours palettes, this is a beautifully-appointed holiday home that provides easy access to the picturesque coastline of Yorkshire.

Wander over to the contemporary kitchen, finished to a high standard with a white splashback wall and modern appliances, here you’ll find everything needed to some sumptuous meals for the group.

Serve these meals in the sophisticated dining room, hosting a grand dining table surrounded by vibrant furnishings, contemporary lighting and a cosy wood burning stove - this is a charming space to enjoy the company of each other.

Next door in the ground floor lounge you will find a second wood burning stove, for warm gatherings on the comfortable giant Chesterfield sofa.

Climb the staircase to the first floor and make yourself at home within the sitting room, taking comfort on the plush sofas to watch a good film or choose wisely from the bookcase and lose yourself in a good read!

Once you are fully relaxed after a day of adventure, take your pick from four beautifully presented bedrooms; the first floor offers a king-size with en-suite bathroom and a double with en-suite shower, whilst the second floor offers a gorgeous super-king-size room and a twin, giving you plenty of choice.

Both beds on the second floor are Linx zip beds, so can be set up as twins or a double and a Super king bed, giving extra flexibility.

The second floor bedrooms have easy access to the family bathroom, with a spacious shower and WC.

Each bedroom has been carefully decorated with neutral tones and contemporary furniture to ensure quality sleeping quarters throughout.

Outside there is a South-facing courtyard, with sufficient room to park two cars and space for outdoor tables and chairs, which are stored in the property.

About the location


Robin Hood's Bay 5.5 miles; Scarborough 19.3 miles; Pickering 23 miles; Guisborough 21.5 miles.

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.
