    Very clean & comfortable & it was very well equipped. There was nothing we needed as it was a home from home & very central for all amenities. Thank you for the welcome pack too. We would definitely stay here again & would recommend

The property

Starfish sits right in the heart of charm-filled Whitby as a stylishly decorated, duplex apartment over the first and second floors.

It acts as a superb base for exploring the marvellous North York Moors and the stunning east Yorkshire coast.

Step in from the charming centre of Whitby, through the communal entrance and discover the first floor of your modern home-from-home.

Firstly, you will discover a beautiful open-plan living area, touched with sumptuous grey features and offering a wealth of high-quality fixtures and fittings to give an exquisite feel to your relaxing time.

Two snug leather sofas enjoy the warmth of a modern electric fire, as well as a Smart TV to watch your favourite shows on.

Turn the corner to find an immaculate kitchen and dining area, usefully equipped and providing a charming dining table with bench seating for four of you to gather around.

Starfish's twin bedroom also rests on this floor, enjoying rejuvenating, light décor and a flourish of nautical touches offering a subtle reminder of your superb coastal location.

Take the stairs to the upper floor, here you will stumble upon the equally stunning master bedroom, situated next to a luxurious shower room to get ready for your day in style.

Step out of the property to be at one with the delights of central Whitby, its wide range of fine restaurants, shops, pubs and bars abound in the surrounding streets; this beautiful fishing port is dominated by its dramatic abbey, which rests close to the wonderfully sandy beach.

Nearby, the North York Moors border Whitby, this remarkable landscape offers a multitude of opportunities for walking and cycling.

Travel south along the coast to discover popular seaside spots, including Scarborough with its marvellous Castle, access to the Scarborough North Bay Railway, beautiful beaches and Alpamare UK.

Continue south along the coast to find the delights of Robin Hood’s Bay and Filey, or venture north to Saltburn-by-the-Sea and Redcar; an abundance of coastal fun awaits!

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.
