  • "Anchors away was a lovely apartment there was every thing that was needed for a great stay ,it was well situated on the out skirts of Whitby just a short walk into town along a well sheltered pathway The only drawback to Anchors away was the amount of keys to get into the apartment and the stairway anyone with walking difficulty would find it hard."

  • "Anchors Away was just perfect,we would definitely recommend this one it’s in a very quiet place close to the cinder track that is in easy walking distance to Whitby town centre (15 minutes) so no need to drive and pay parking fees , immaculately presented, very comfortable with everything you need for very relaxing holiday."

    We could not find one fault with this property and we would definitely book it again in the future .Thank you.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in the flat."

    It was very clean, warm, quiet and comfortable.It had everything we needed (apart from a cafetière! - bring your own if you like fresh coffee in the morning). The shower was hot, the bed was massive and comfy and there's a smart TV which you can watch Netflix or Prime TV if you have your own login details. The property is about 10 mins walk from the town centre, and the cinder track is about 150 yards, if you turn left from the "front door" From there you can head left into Whitby or go right and walk to Robin Hood's Bay (so beautiful, and well worth a visit) or all the way to Scarborough if you really want to. Do note that the flat itself is up 2 flights of stairs. There are no lifts, so either pack light, or make sure you have someone in your party strong enough to carry your heavy bags up for you!! All in all though, we're very happy to recommend this flat - it was a lovely, peaceful home-from- home.

  • "What a super apartment and location."

    Thank you for a lovely comfortable stay with everything you could need and immaculately clean! My only bit of a constructive suggestion would be to free up a kitchen cupboard for food. I just manoeuvred some stuff to free up space then put it back before leaving. Definitely would recommend in fact we already have!

  • "The property was really good, clean and tidy."

    The walk into didn't take too long but sheepish hill on way back.to property. Though did manage to catch bus back up hill sometimes,really useful. Only problem we did encounter was the smart tv. No instructions as to how to use it, they would have been helpful. Would recommend property, we had a lovely week.

  • "The flat is on a recently built estate and we found it to be clean, tidy and quiet."

    The designated parking space was a bonus.The flat itself was lovely. It had a real homely feel. It was decorated and furnished to a high standard. Everywhere was clean and neat - reassuring in these Covid times, thoughtfully, there were even masks and gel for our use. The kitchen was well equipped with a good range of the pots, pans and containers we use a home along with plenty of utensils. There was milk in the fridge and tea/coffee and biscuits/cake on arrival - most welcome! The lounge and bedrooms were deceptively large and there was plenty of room for four people (we were two). The flat has the new BT Fibre broadband providing an excellent high speed connection. The smart TV had a spare HDMI and USB2 ports so we were able to connect our Chromecast (brought from home) and stream Netflix etc via our mobiles. Remember to install iPlayer and any other apps on your mobile before arriving. The flat was well located for town, walks and nearby tourist places. There is a passage at the end of the houses which brought us out at the traffic lights and down Prospect Hill into town. The passage also led us straight on to the Cinder Track which we walked the 7 miles to Robin Hood Bay where we had lunch at the Victoria (sit in the Orangery overlooking the bay). The X93 bus stop is opposite and took us back to Prospect Hill. This flat was a super find and we hope it is available next time we visit Whitby.
