The property

An attractive period cottage in Whitby’s Old Town, situated in a charming courtyard setting just off the cobbled Church Street.

Families and couples will appreciate the welcoming, relaxed ambience of this lovely property and Whitby’s picturesque environs are sure to captivate. Set over four floors, each room is thoughtfully furnished and equipped.

Enter the sitting room, with its inglenook fireplace and beamed ceiling, and be transported back in time.

The space benefits from comfortable seating and quality soft furnishings; there are quirky decorative touches throughout which give a nod to Whitby’s illustrious maritime heritage.

The TV/DVD comes with a selection of films and books – perfect for a chilled out evening’s entertainment after a busy day. To the lower ground floor is a bright, homely kitchen with dining area.

Keep the cook company over pre-dinner drinks and nibbles! The first floor twin room is decorated in restful, muted hues with a pleasant view over the courtyard.

There is also a stylish bathroom with bath, separate shower, basin and WC. Moving upstairs, the second floor master double bedroom is nestled under gorgeous exposed beams – a cosy and romantic hideaway for any couple. Whitby oozes history and it is very pleasurable simply to meander through the cobbled streets that lead to your door, perhaps calling in at one of the tea rooms for a pot of Yorkshire tea.

The Captain Cook Memorial Museum is situated nearby, housed in the same residence where Cook lived as an apprentice.

Everyone loves traditional fish and chips and Whitby’s are some of the finest in the world – you really are spoilt for choice.
