  • “Parking is a challenge with a large car (Volvo estate) Had to reverse down Clarkson St to get into the parking spot and then overhang 2’ at the back!”

    Bedroom TV remote does not work and not the batteries. Other than that we were very happy with the cottage.

The property

Set back on an idyllic cobbled street in the heart of Whitby, The Counting House is a pretty ground-floor cottage ideal for a romantic retreat to the beautiful coast of North Yorkshire.

Surrounded by enchanting local landmarks and soft sandy beaches, this humble abode is perfectly suited to any type of holiday, with so much adventure right on your doorstep.

Enter into this charming dwelling and be greeted by a quaint yet well-equipped kitchen, complete with all the necessary appliances for a self-catering stay.

From here, a warm and welcoming living/dining room awaits you, home to a plush corner sofa and an impressive Smart TV where you can enjoy an entertaining evening with your significant other, before indulging in a bottle of wine and tasty meal for two at the dining table.

Prepare for the day with a refreshing rinse in the shower room, grabbing your towel from the heated rail and retreating to the lavish dressing room that serves the fabulous double bedroom.

Tear yourself away from this arresting abode and uncover the hidden gems of the North Yorkshire Coast and Countryside, whether it be hiking along the coast, or heading deep into the countryside on an action-packed day in the North Riding Forest Park.

Make the most of your time in Whitby with tours of the Captain Cook Memorial Museum or climbing the 199 steps up to the Church of St Mary and Whitby Abbey, before taking a boat out to sea for a spot of Whale watching.

Enjoy breath-taking views from Whitby Golf Club as you partake in a quick nine holes, or hop in the car and head for Robin Hood's Bay to see The Old Coastguard Station, now owned by the National Trust, and Robin Hood's Bay Museum.

See the cascading waters of Hayburn Wyke waterfall, or spend the day in Scarborough with attractions such as Scarborough Castle, the Rotunda Museum and Peasholm Park all waiting to be explored.

On return to the cottage, be sure to stop off at one of the many thriving pubs and delicious local restaurants for a bite to eat, or pick up a takeaway and head back to your restful cottage for a quiet evening indoors.

Live unforgettable moments with your loved ones on an escape to The Counting House.
