    “The cottage was spotless and had many little touches such as milk and Yorkshire biscuits and especially appreciated in these challenging times were the antibacterial wipes and disposable gloves.”

    I very much appreciated your help in assisting me to make changes to my booking after I experienced a car accident which delayed my arrival.

The property

An immaculate cottage in the heart of Whitby, just off one of the oldest and most historic streets in town.

Little Gem really does live up to its name – the perfect bijou cottage for solo travellers or those who love having everything on their doorstep.

Situated in a quiet courtyard, your stay here provides a restful base from which to explore the thriving and much loved seaside town of Whitby. Newly renovated and decorated in a calming palette of beach-inspired colours, this gorgeous little cottage has everything you will need for a memorable coastal getaway.

From Flowergate’s main street, access the property via a gated alleyway leading to a secluded square.

Once inside, you will immediately appreciate the fresh and tasteful décor of the open plan living space.

A comfortable sitting area with TV, DVD and free Netflix is a cosy place to chill out after days spent exploring the area.

There’s a cosy corner to enjoy a meal together should you wish to dine in. The light, stylish kitchen area is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave and washing machine. To the first floor, there’s an additional seating area with a small library and floor lamp – relax here with the morning papers or start the day with some gentle yoga in this tranquil space. The bathroom is immaculate with a bath, shower over, basin and WC. Breakfast in bed?

Why not!

The pretty twin bedroom is peacefully tucked away on the second floor.

The décor is restful: fresh whites with accents of duck egg blues.

Enjoy a good night’s sleep in one of the comfortable full size 3’ twin beds.

There’s a bedside cabinet with good lighting for reading at night.

This floor benefits from its own cloakroom with basin and WC for added convenience. The best way to fully appreciate the atmospheric charm of Whitby, its sights, smells and sounds, is on foot.

Meander the winding cobbled streets of the Old Town, pausing for afternoon tea in one of the quaint tea rooms, or saunter along the waterfront past stylish restaurants serving freshly caught seafood.

Whitby fish and chips are world class!

Climb the 199 steps up to St Mary’s Church and soak up some spectacular views from the vantage point of Whitby’s iconic Abbey ruins.

Or find your sea legs and take a pleasure trip from the harbour – they run daily along the heritage coast. Stretch your legs a little further and walk 25 mins’ during low tide from Whitby to Sandsend, with its charming sea-front cafes.

Robin Hood’s Bay, Scarborough and Filey are to the south, offering miles of unspoilt sandy beaches.

Inland villages worth visiting include Grosmont – go by steam train!

– or Goathland – where they filmed ITV’s Heartbeat. This adorable cottage is so well located - beautiful Whitby is on your doorstep - giving you plenty of time to appreciate its many riches.

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 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.
