    “I don't want to say how good this property is because we want to keep it to ourselves so we can stay again because I am sure that when people know about this property it will be booked up forever.”

    We where a family group of 9 people and the property accommodated us brilliantly. The property is spotless with everything you need.The customer service of the owner Esther was second to known. I really really cant recommend this property highly enough.

The property

Situated just off the main street in Whitby, lies this magnificent Grade II listed Georgian townhouse, Stewart House.

Built in 1760, this townhouse has been lovingly restored and enhanced by the owners, offering a sumptuous base with seven bedrooms over three floors, perfect for those seeking a spectacular Whitby base.

The design of the property is arranged in two sections with separate staircases, perfect for two families or groups of friends.

Enter through the impressive front door, leading into the magnificent hallway with part panelled walls and a period staircase.

Two period sitting rooms are positioned opposite each other, finished with twin sash windows with original window shutters, and one boasting a coal effect gas fire and one with log burner, ideal for those cold winter nights.

Move into the kitchen, amply-equipped with a range of modern appliances, including a NEFF double electric oven and Siemens 900mm hob, sure to inspire some home-cooking.

Serve hearty home-cooked meals in the dining room, which also serves as a delightful seating area where patio doors provide access to the courtyard.

Moving through the property and up the first staircase, there are two superb bedrooms, including a super-king-size and king-size room, oozing Georgian character and luxurious en-suite shower rooms, while continuing to the second floor leads to a beautifully finished twin room with a dedicated shower room.

Climb the second staircase to reveal the second portion of the property; on the first floor lies two double rooms, finished with a traditional décor and served by a modern bathroom, while the second floor hosts two inviting single rooms, enhanced with original, upholstered Georgian beds.

Outside, the townhouse hosts an enclosed courtyard with furniture, perfect for stepping out to enjoy your morning coffee or set the table for some alfresco dining.

Whether you wish to relax or sunbathe, or try your hand at a range of watersports, Whitby Beach is just a short stroll away and offers something for the whole family.

Those history buffs will appreciate the attractions of the town, including Whitby Museum and Whitby Abbey, and the famous 199 Steps all being within walking distance from the doorstep of the abode.

Spot the iconic Whalebone Arch as you tuck into a tasty portion of fish and chips, or head to the village of Robin Hood’s Bay to see the National Trust owned Old Coastguard Station and Robin Hood’s Bay Museum.

Venture you way down the coast, you will reach the charming town of Filey, boasting yet another attractive beach, the Filey Maze and the delightful Glen Gardens, ideal for a relaxing day out.

Wherever you choose to explore, return each evening to the comfort and quality of Stewart House.

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.
