  • "A lovely clean, comfortable and spacious flat."

    Close to all amenities with the added bonus of parking and a great view of the river. (We had one issue on our final day which the owner dealt with very swiftly and efficiently.)

  • "Lovely comfortable accommodation."

    Very clean and a very welcome break after a hectic year. Great to see the steam train and we even saw 'sammy' the seal!! Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Easy walking access into Whitby alongside the river with a lovely view of the Abbey.

  • "We are returning visitors to this beautiful apartment right on the harbour side with beautiful views, steam train spotting feom the window was great and the kids enjoyed crabbing off the harbour side."

    Very clean and modern, it had been updated since our last visit too. We love the location and the parking spot, for then an easy walk into whitby or as your base to travel elsewhere. Robin hoods Bay and Scarborough are not far away. Owners had left a welcome package of milk, tea, biscuits and wine! Sponge/cloth/tea towels/soap and kitchen cooking utensils and trays all available too. DVDs and games also available. Towels and bed linen included. A perfect apartment and we will return again.

  • "We had a great time whilst staying at Anchors Down."

    The property was very clean, comfortable and had everything you needed. Only a short walk away from the centre and with an allocated parking spot being a real bonus. If we are in the area in the future we would happily stay again.

    Ps to the owner the tap on the kitchen sink is slack needs to be adjusted to prevent any water damage. Plus a none stick frying pan apart from that excellent

    Very well equipped and comfortable- ideal for a family of four. Easy 10 minute walk into Whitby and plenty of places to explore in the area.

  • "This was by far the best property we have stayed in for a long time."

    It was very clean, warm and cosy and also very quiet. It was well equipped, and we enjoyed our welcome pack. It was lovely to watch the steam trains go past the window also the Heron and Egret that came to the river at low tide. It was a 30-minute walk into Whitby but being bad on our feet a younger person could do it quicker. There were only 4 restaurants and 3 tea rooms we could eat in as I am allergic to dog hairs and there were plenty of dogs around. We would recommend this property. One thing they could leave more of is toilet rolls.

  • "We had an excellent week at Anchors Down, everything was perfect."

    Clean accommodation and welcome pack-much appreciated. The views are brilliant of the estuary and of Whitby itself. Great location, short walk into Whitby, didn't use the car all week. Parking was a bonus, right outside the entrance door. No issues getting the keys or returning them to the key safe (as other guests have previously commented). Good communication with the owner when we had a query before arrival. Hope to return in the future.

    Thank you some much for your review really glad you enjoyed your stay with us Property Owner

  • "The apartment was lovely and well positioned overlooking the estuary ."

    The bedrooms are very spacious with comfy beds . Just a few house keeping things . We could have done with hand towels in the bathroom and kitchen and kitchen roll. One toilet roll and one bin bag is a bit penny pinching considering we spent £1100 . The toaster is very poor.

    I’m so sorry to her this but their should have been a roll of bags in the left hand draw and extra toilet rolls in the bathroom draw As for the towels their was a large bath towel and a small towel for each quest thank you for the feed back we will look in to this Property Owner

    Either too hot or little pressure. Bigger bath towels would be nice

    So sorry you couldn’t get the water temperature right, as for the towels the were full size bath and hand towels. Kind regards Property Owner

Settled within the desirable Whitehall Landing development, on the outskirts of the popular port town of Whitby, rests this delightful ground-floor apartment, Anchors Down.

Idyllically positioned overlooking the tranquil waters of the River Esk whilst enjoying close proximity to a host of amenities, attractions and an on site play area Anchors Down makes the perfect base for a small family or group of friends looking to explore the delights of this sought-after area.

An off-road parking space greets you at the foot of this lovely dwelling, making loading and unloading an easy task, whilst allowing guests the opportunity to journey far and wide to discover more of North Yorkshire.

Stepping inside, be charmed by the fabulous open-plan living space, beautifully-adorned with nautical artwork and thoughtfully laid-out with a snug seating area gathered in front of the Smart TV, providing a lovely spot to settle down and unwind with a steaming cup of tea following a day of adventure.

Discover the well-equipped kitchen tucked away at the rear of the sociable space, fit with a range of fantastic amenities to help prepare delicious meals to be enjoyed at the nearby dining table throughout your staycation.

As the day grows darker, follow the corridor through to the contemporary family bathroom, stylishly tiled throughout and fit with a bath with overhead shower, giving guests the choice to pour in the bubbles and soak their tired feet, or to wash away the day with a quick rinse.

When sleep calls, retire to either of the two well-presented bedrooms, with the choice between a sumptuous king-size with Smart TV or a twin.

Take advantage of your idyllic location and head outdoors to explore your surroundings with a stroll along the banks of the River Esk towards the harbour; a truly lovely spot to savour fresh fish and chips as you watch the world go by across the tranquil waters.

For a more exhilarating experience, pack up your bucket and spade and head to the glorious sands of Whitby Beach, where you can make a splash with a dip in the waters of the North Sea, tackle the waves and try your hand at surfing with tuition available at Whitby Surf School, or soak in the sun and sand with a stroll along the promenade, adorned with colourful beach huts.

Whilst you're in the area, be sure to climb the iconic 199 Steps to reach the ruins of Whitby Abbey, a former Benedictine monastery dating back to the 11th-century, famed as the inspiration behind Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula.

Lace up your walking boots and embark on a two-footed adventure along the dramatic coastline via the Cleveland Way towards the picture-perfect fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay, where you can immerse yourself in history with a tour of Robin Hood's Bay Museum or The Old Coastguard Station, preserved by the National Trust.
