  • "Had a wonderful time staying at this cosy cottage."

    We've stayed here on several occasions and it always feels like coming home. Whitby is a special place for us and we hope to see a lot more of Whitby - and Storm Cottage - in the future.

  • "Whilst marketed as a group accommodation the lack of extra toilet or enough seating in the sitting room make this a 1 family property."

    Beds were very comfortable and the towels and bed linen were clean and abundant. The location was right in the heart of the town but nestled behind a pub, cafe and fishmonger so a little noisy and smelly as the smoking area of the pub was directly outside the lower bedroom window. The house is definitely in need of a deep clean. Despite detailed instructions on how to dispose of rubbish there were no orange bags at the property to be able to do it. We had a wonderful stay in Whitby but not because of our accommodation and won’t be booking again.

    Thank you for your feedback, your comments have been noted and where possible, addressed. Housekeeping has also been notified, thank you for bringing specific issues to our attention. Property Owner

The property

Tucked away in the seaside town of Whitby in North Yorkshire, lies this traditional circa 1750 Georgian fisherman's cottage.

Storm Cottage, a Grade II listed building, boasts a fantastic location with views from the top bedroom of the sea and the harbour.

Within the North York Moors National Park and only a stone’s throw from the sandy trails of the beach, Storm Cottage is a great base for couples, families, or friends to enjoy a coastal getaway.

Ascend the quaint cobbled path, you will notice the private patio area where you can enjoy a refreshing drink after a day of exploring.

As you enter inside, discover the country style kitchen equipped with all the essentials for a self-catered stay; enjoy mealtimes around the large dining table, or out in the private garden.

After dinner, kick back and relax on the sofa as you catch up on your favourite shows on the Smart TV.

Continue through to the ground-floor bathroom, where you can have a soak in the tub, before retiring to one of three spacious bedrooms, two doubles or a lower-ground floor family room (this will be a twin room from September 2024).

Head down the path into town where you will find the harbour and an abundance of restaurants, pubs, and shops, as well as a magnificent beach where you can swim, surf or paddle board the days away.

Continue to Robin Hood’s Bay and admire the National Trust site of The Old Coastguard Station, immerse yourself in the local history at Whitby Museum or tour the grounds of Whitby Abbey.

Further afield, be sure to take a day trip to Pickering where Pickering Castle and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway await; or get up close and personal with marine life at the Sea Life Centre in Scarborough, home to award-winning sandy beaches, breathtaking coastlines, and a great variety of family attractions.

For a marvelous stay in North Yorkshire which offers an idyllic blend of coastal and countryside, choose Storm Cottage.

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 array of activities 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 everyone. 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. Close to the Robin Hood's Bay, rich in heritage, wonders and scenic spots, and in easy 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.
